Taking to her social media Wahu penned,
‘As a teenager and into my early twenties, I had terrible self esteem issues.
I felt ugly, unintelligent and unworthy of being loved. I never thought I’d amount to anything much in life.
I wish I could go back in time and tell 17 year old wahu that everything’s gonna be more than OK.
That God is on her side and she will overcome.
I don’t know who needs to hear this but don’t believe the lies the devil will throws your way. Gods got you young girl…
Gods got you young man. And there’s nothing like being worthy of Gods love..no..his love is unconditional..it knows no religion, no “I’m good or I’m bad”…no “I don’t deserve good things to happen to me”…no. And the bigger your test the bigger your testimony.’
Other celebs who have talked about their insecurities in the past include Awinja who always felt like her jaws were ugly.
Muthoni Mukiri (Inooro TV) she felt like her teeth were too big, Mercy Masika and Rue Baby who felt like she was too thin.
