Reacting to her critics, Muna stated that she will never understand why people are berating her due to her inability to firmly command her native language.

“I can never understand why people shame people who are visibly trying to speak their language to the best of their ability,” she wrote on her Instastory in reaction to the comments

“At least I can speak something. The people that are doing the shaming sef can’t speak any language properly and look like oiled sorrow,” she added.

Munachi was the winner of Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria 2007. She is an Igbo lady who hails from Mbaise, Imo state.
