She said when her sister died, she slowly slid into a depression that made her add so much weight. She is still managing her weight to date.
"I would get comments such as, 'You look like a hippo on the loose' and many others that I can't even pronounce," she said.
"Unfortunately, in the 21st century, we are still dealing with this ignorance. I think cyberbullies are just primitive."
Speaking about her parents supporting her career, Kareh said her dad was very traditional in terms of careers.
"He wanted us to be doctors, lawyers, and so on," she said.
Born and raised in Murang'a county, Kareh B said the biggest support system in her career is her mum, whom she says is her prayer warrior.
