Media personality Grace Ekirapa has explained why she will not open a social media account for her daughter Jasmine.

Grace and Pascal Tokodi welcomed a daughter two months ago.

Speaking to Mpasho.co.ke, Grace said any company that wants to advertise with her daughter can do that on her parent's social media pages.

"No Instagram or any other social media for her," she said.

"We can do endorsements on our pages. I am sorry but am not okay when an infant is talking to me on Instagram."

Grace explained that she is fine with celebrities who do that but they will give her space to grow and be in a position to post by herself when the time comes.

"I feel weird that a one-week, one-month baby saying, 'hey world, I am here'. I don't have a problem with those doing but for me, I am not going to do that.

When they are old enough to open one for themselves and post, that's okay since it's gonna be their voice."

Grace also spoke about how they came up with the name of her daughter.

She said they researched about the name as she understands names have power and impact on a child's growth.

"When I was growing up, I learnt that names are powerful. Like my name Grace has opened many doors for me," she said.

"Jasmine means a gift from God. We believed God for a girl coz all my sisters have boys and Pascal's family has boys as well.

He comes from a family that has four boys," she said.

"We gave her that name as a way to open doors for her. Everywhere she goes, she is presented with the name gift. She will be a gift from God to the people around her. Every time you call that name, you bring that name to life. I remind myself that she is a gift from God."
