Mercy Opande, KTN’s ‘I Can Sing’ winner, on silencing the body shamers

Kenyan singer-songwriter Mercy Opande was often taunted about her weight.

She entered many talent shows, but was often rejected because she “didn’t look how a star was supposed to look.”

But then she entered Kenyan TV station KTN’s I Can Sing talent show and it proved to be a decision that changed her life.
