After Jojo Robinson’s princess soiree event, Annie Mthembu stayed back to chat to her. Annie opened up about an eye condition she has called Bell’s Palsy. 

“All the muscles… like your face gets paralysed on the one side. Um, and I had it during my pregnancy with my first baby,” she said, speaking off her condition. 

Annie then admitted that she feels uncomfortable about her eye because people keep asking about it. There were also comments from Twitter which were shown on screen. She then asked what work she could get done for the eye.

The businesswoman then revealed that she was bullied when she was in school in the UK.

“The way that I sort of grew up. Like, in the UK. I was bullied, like so badly. They would like hit me over the head with umbrellas and they would just like do anything to just sort of, you know, get at me,” she said.

“They attacked me for such a long time, and I would just like go into my own little space. I feel upset, I was alone as well because I was not accepted. So, during lunch time I would literally just sit and read a book, just to stay out of the way of those people who are constantly attacking me,” she continued.

Jojo then broke down in tears and assured Annie that she did not deserve that.
