DJ Pierra breaks down talking about cyber bullying after gaining weight – VIDEO
Celebrity DJ Pierra, real name Pierra Makena, on Monday got emotional and broke down as she narrated her traumatic experiences with cyber bullies.
DJ Makena was speaking on Monday during the launch of Hisia Campaign, an initiative by gospel singer Jimmy Gait against cyber bullying.
In her speech, she tried in vain to fight tears but eventually broke down as she shared details of her near mental breakdown due to the taunts by cyber bullies on her weight after giving birth to her first baby.
“After I gave birth I was going through depression and my weight was not adding up. My doctor insisted that I eat more because I needed to gain weight. I woke up one morning and I was 64 kilograms, you have no idea how that felt. So when somebody posts on social media how I looked terrible with my weight it broke me down,” said Makena.
The mother of one also narrated how her social media accounts have been hacked, not once but twice, and how she once lost an acting gig in Hollywood because she could not access her Instagram account.
“One morning I was called by an agency in Hollywood because they wanted to see my profile on my Instagram page but they could not because it had been hacked, and that is how I lost it,” she added.
According to Makena, the hackers have no shame because they have been asking her for money in order to relinquish her account.
She is currently working with a cyber security firm to get it back, but wonders why the hackers only wanted Sh12,000 so that they give it back to her, money she has refused to pay.
Hisia Campaign is an initiative that is against cyber bullying going by the motto Kabla u-click fikiria.
Jimmy Gait as inspired to start the campaign after he also got cyber bullied and went into depression.
