‘Disaster Girl’, the popular meme often used by Kenyans on Twitter to stir and commentate online ‘chaos’ has sold for a whopping Sh50 Million, Zoë Roth, best known as “Disaster Girl” for the popular image taken by her father in 2005 of her smirking at the camera while a house burns down in the background, has sold the original copy of the meme as an NFT (Non-Fungible Token) for 180 Ether, worth almost $500,000.
Yes, I love the meme, and Ether.
In an interview with Journalists, Roth said that she’ll use the money to pay off her student loans and to donate to charity. And as is the case with many NFT sales, the Roths also retain the copyright to the image and will make 10pc off any future sales of the NFT.

Roth’s NFT is now owned by a Dubai-based music studio, 3F Music, that has dipped into its pockets to buy several other bug-ticket NFTs.
