 “In the video, now viewed over 200 000 times, Majimbo goes on about how she doesn’t actually miss anyone since being forced to stay in doors.” Of course, in Majimbo’s own unabashed words she says: “Why am I missing you? There is no reason for me to miss you… do I pay your rent? Do I provide food for you? Why are you missing me?”.
