Earlier today I told how Kiss 100’s Lynda Nyangweso was the subject of ridicule on Twitter due to her weight. Well, the sassy radio presenter has responded to her ‘downtrodders’. But what is fascinating is her mature way of doing it; instead of taking shots, she kept her head high and declared that she is not in any way ashamed of her weight.
Cyber-bullying is now becoming a common trend among the Kenyan online community. A number of celebrities have had their fair share of cyber-bullying thanks to the stance they once took. One of them is Susan Mirfat Musa who was even labeled Madharau Mirfat, for ‘mistreating’ her arranged date on TV! (read about her tribulations HERE).
Well, the latest victim to face the wrath of exacting Kenyans on the internet is Kiss 100’s breakfast show co-host Lynda Nyangweso. After her photo (below) found its way to Twitter, a section of Kenyans on Twitter saw this as the perfect opportunity to attack the presenter over her weight.
Here are some of the severe tweets;

One of the pair on Kiss 100’s ‘Rush Hour’ show, Shaffie Weru is known for strong stance on what he believes in both on and off air. A super MC, Shaffie is also Kenya’s Rick Ross look-alike (at least according to this photo) and is gratified by that.
I pleaded with you a while back, to send your demos to Adelle Onyango of Kiss Fm's Mid Morning show if you wanted to sing with the Longombas. Did you?
Kalekye Mumo announced that she was set to make the switch from presenting on a radio station (ergo presenting music) to making music.
Good news people! Are you an upcoming musician and have always wondered what it takes to work with the Longombas?
So, by now you must know that Jalang'o's Kiss FM show today is actually his last. He is quitting the radio station today to concentrate on and elevate his own media company, which has now been around for a while.
