Comedian and digital content creator Elsa Majimbo has been named in the 12th annual Forbes top 30 under 30 most influential people of 2023, special category: youngest.
She’s been making serious waves and her light hasn’t gone unrecognized.
Elsa has been a force to reckon with ever since she broke into the limelight during the Covid-19 period with her sarcastic laughs.
While sharing the news on her Instagram page, the 21-year-old shared a screenshot she had taken from Forbes’s official page announcing her as she gushed over how excited she was.
“30 under 30 Boyyy!!! Can’t stop the Elsa train. Thank you, Forbes,”Elsa captioned the post.
Sharing on her Twitter page she wrote, “Woke up being on Forbes list. I’m crying because I keep being blessed and successful… anyway #Grateful.”
The comedian made it to number 21 on the list which featured other prominent people like Hailey Bieber, Sydney Sweeny and Joel Embiid.
Elsa dropped out of college to purse comedy full term after her peak success during the pandemic period. She found fame by capitalizing on TikTok through short skits and parodies of her indulgent lazy life.
This is not the first time Elsa has been featured on Forbes though.
She was first featured in Forbes magazine back in 2020 in an article titled: The Real Queen’s Gambit. They did an explainer of who she was and how she rose to fame.
She also got featured on the inaugural Forbes Top Creators list this year where she was ranked no.49.
