zainabu zeddy interview
Question: People always confuse you to be a girl from the Coast
Really? I have lived in various places and Coast is none of them. I was born in Majengo area Nairobi, then I spent some time in Olkalou then my family moved backward to the city in Majengo.
Do you feel frightened being the only woman in a male-dominated field?
The business does not care whether you are a man or a lady. It only cares when you have what it really takes. My hard upbringing has taught me to fight for everything that is worth striving for and despite what most people may think, I never get any special favours.
Why is it that unlike other areas in entertainment production, it is only comedy where women don’t succeed as much as men?
You need an iron heart to endure as a comedian. There are times when you come on stage and the viewers just stares at you without laughing.
When this occurs, most women, I have noticed, will run backstage and cry stating they will never step on the stage again and give up.
No one wants to prepare for a week and be in that situation but when it occurs to me, I use it as a knowledge experience and don’t let it go to me.
A lot of new entertainers fizzle out after making it big but the old ones manage to sustain relevance. Are we presuming the same from you?
Sometimes things happen very fast. One week you are really struggling to get recognition and the other you are abruptly famous. Many comedians are unable to manage the pressure that comes with being a sudden public figure. I regularly try not to get it into my head so much and I am very religious.
How has comedy shaped your life?
As I told you in the beginning, my family was living in Korogocho slum in Nairobi before I joined Churchill and by being an entertainer, I have managed to pull them out of the slums finally.
There are reports that you are dating fellow comedian YY…
(Laughing) That is a production of you guys in the media. People just saw a selfie I took with him and uploaded it to a social media site, and the rumors started. I am not dating him, and I will never date a comedian.
So are you dating anyone?
I prefer not to respond to that because my answer may influence my relationship with my fans, which most of them are men.
