ZIMBABWE’S latest internet sensation, Lorraine Y Guyo, otherwise known as the ‘Ndenyengeiwo’ girl, has clinched lucrative advertising deals with a leading commercial bank, a fast foods outlet, a fashion and clothing shop as well as a consumer electronics company all in a week!
Last week this time, Lorraine was the subject of internet shaming and ridicule after her video skit supposedly inviting men to ask her out ahead of Valentine’s Day went viral.
So intense was the shaming that she has had to discard her regular cellphone number, but within a matter of days the shame turned into fame — and then into feature adverts for leading brands.
Lorraine is indeed riding on the crest of her newfound popularity wave.
It has been a great Valentine’s for her — you can say she got more that she bargained for when she playfully recorded that “Ndinyengeiwo” skit. —
