Being called out on the school assembly line for breaking the rules common in pre- tertiary institutions, but getting summoned for committing multiple offences like some modern-day problem child is a whole level of notoriety that many aspire to, but are too afraid to emulate.
That confident, swag-full, carefree, law breaking attitude is what got netizens interested in Bridget Bema, the 9 year old Kenyan girl in the now viral video that everyone is watching across Africa and beyond.
Bridget’s character was developed by her elder brother Oliver Otieno AKA YY Comedian. He played the school administrator in the viral video where Bridget’s name was reeled for various misdemeanors ranging from late coming, noise making, mother tongue speaking, bullying etc thus making her to move from row to row in open defiance of constituted authority.
Bridget represents a fitting throwback to the days when doing what one wishes without giving a damn in the world came naturally. And by her portraying such character, got the video go viral simply because it resonates deeply with us regardless of our background.
We hope she won’t stop doing what she’s doing – making content out of Kenya for us to laugh hard and share aggressively.
