The winner of Atinka TV’s Di Asa show, Rachel Annie, has disclosed that her mom did not like the idea of her joining the competition.
Speaking on SVTV Africa, Annie indicated that she did not tell any family member till she was in the Di Asa house. According to the reigning dance champion, she did not inform any family members until they recognized her on stage later and supported her.
“She didn’t like the idea because she’s part of the church elders. But I told her that the head of Atinka TV is a church elder himself, so it’s not bad. I didn’t tell her about the audition, but when I won the audition, the support came,” she told DJ Nyaami.
Annie added that after she entered the house, her family threw their weight behind her. She also spoke about the challenges she faces as a plus-size woman.
“Initially, the taxi and trotro drivers complained, but they stopped after I won,” she said.
Annie is the Season 5 winner of Atinka TV’s Di Asa competition.
