The Fighter and the Pimp: Fighting for Congo’s most vulnerable girls – BBC Africa Eye documentary



In the DRC’s capital city, wrestling has helped an extraordinary woman to escape the violent streets on which she grew up.

As a fighter, Shaki is an inspiration for dozens of street children, and her home has become a refuge for girls trying to escape the thugs, rapists, and pimps of Kinshasa’s slums.

BBC Africa Eye follows Shaki as she steps into the wrestling ring, fights to give her daughter a chance in life, and takes on other women who have very different ideas about how to raise teenage girls.

    1. Its an utter shock…
      Also its so disappointing reading things like
      “God bless her soul”
      “Thank God i have a good life”
      God bless those young women i pray for their lives to get better”

      What the f*????

      Dont pray and dont bless anyone’s soul but call out your brother/father/mate/stranger in the street if u see them treat women like shit

      Also you can change the minds if women being whores and look down on them and turning the question to men who are using a woman’s body and go to these houses to have sex witht them.

      Why not speak about those men? Why not speak about these distorted societies which consider prostitutes “bad” and make NO COMMENT on people using prostitutes????

      Lets just stop praying and blessing everyone who suffers and take some logical and REAL helping actions instead

    2. This girl is fighting the weak drunk men

    3. U are such an inspiration and a blessing to those girls!!!

    4. Waaah!!! Life is hard 🙁🙁🙁🙁

    5. Does anyone recognize the skin disease she contracted? Maybe we can help her cure it.

    6. What a beautiful person & a great Mom, who loves & adores her daughter, they're a solid duo…pray they both are well!!!!

    7. Bless Shakira she truly is amazing helping all those girls…

    10. What a phenomenal woman ❤️

    11. 🙄🙄🙄 Shakira l knew her from my country to other views but with that story l have changed the way to see her courage Shakira

    12. Chimine should go and help run Shakira's Foster home. She will not have to worry about rent. However she would be eternally fighting her "dark side" of fleshly desires and that would always put the girls in her harms way. Shame, I wish the best for all of them in this documentary! I wish I could help Shakira in some way. She is truly a Human Rights Advocate that is giving purpose to the girls she takes in!

    13. This lady is so brave and courageous, wow

    14. hello shaki, if you find yourself reading this comment section of your video, just know that you are loved and many people want to help you out, peace.

    15. F..U..G OJ'S DON'T CARE ABOUT ANYONE BUT THEMSELVES OPENING UP EVERYTHING THAT HAS ASS & PUS.Y!! CRAZY SICK PLACE WITH NO LEADERSHIP!! MONEY-MAKING ECONOMY OFF OF YOU & ME!! THROWING THIER WASTE ( GARBAGE IN AFRICA) I SEE THEM!!

    16. I KEEP TO MYSELF CAUSE IN THIS CORRUPT COUNTRY EVERYBODY GOT MIND GAMES! AND I DON'T PLAY!! FU…THEM!

    17. IF YOU COME HERE KEEP YOUR CROWN ON AND DON'T TRUST ANYONE! THE FORK TONGUE, THE CAMOUFLAGED, THE DANGLING BLOOD DIAMONDS.ETC.

    19. Je suis la fille de la reine shakira au nom de phénomène si vous voulez nous contacter contactez-nous sur +243 825175948 merci 🙏

    20. Shaki strengths come from the kids she’s taking care of. The world is temporary and a sad place 😔

    21. I really wanna know if there is any way to contact Shaki on order to send help… Donate for food & care 4 her kids so they aren't forced to take the same road as the older girls. Specially as she no longer has the fighting income.

    22. How can I help Shaki in Kinesasha? Can someone help me reach her? I want to help her.
