Victoria Kimani Speaks on Tiwa Savage, Ycee, Chocolate City Others

Published

on

Kenyan-born singer, Victoria Kimani, set the Internet into frenzy last week after she dropped her version of Kizz Daniel’s Fvck You challenge.

In her song, she called out Nigerian rapper, Oludemilade Alejo, popularly known as Ycee for stealing her song – an allegation that left tongues wagging.

However, in subsequent lines in her song, she seemed to have insulted a Nigerian female artiste and even though she didn’t mention any name, the adjectives she used to qualify the artiste made most people speculate that she was referring to Tiwa Savage.

In an exclusive interview with Saturday Beats, Kimani noted that she didn’t mention Savage’s name but people only took a cue from the content of her song.

She said, “I don’t have any issue with Tiwa Savage at all. I approached the ‘Fvck you challenge’ with a below the belt move.

“It is common knowledge in the industry that this girl doesn’t like performing in the same show with other female artistes, everybody knows this. I never mentioned any names in my Instagram post, people just attached meaning to whoever they wanted to attach it to.

“Secondly, I never mentioned her name in the record but when I saw that she was sending fake Instagram accounts to attack me, that was when I realised she was offended with what I said.

“It was meant to be a light-hearted challenge, I had to be forced to send my statement, and I don’t have a problem doing that. I don’t have a problem defending my statement about blocking women from certain platforms, this is common knowledge that has happened over the years and people don’t like to admit it.

“At the same time, it is not fair for me to body shame, so I apologised for that, but for the other statements, everybody knows that.”

Kimani also spoke about the reason she has been absent from Nigeria for a while, attributing it to the bad experience she had with Chocolate City, her former record label.

She added, “When I was signed to Chocolate City, I had my team there that was where I was pushing. Ever since I lost the label, my focus shifted and I felt I could only come to Nigeria if I have bookings.

“It wasn’t like I forgot about the country, after having a bad experience in Chocolate City, I just wanted to make sure that if I am doing anything in Nigeria, then it is done correctly. I didn’t just want to be there in everyone’s face.”

She also revealed the reason she called Ycee out for stealing her song, adding that they are still very good friends.

“Ycee and I are still friends; the ‘Fvck you challenge’ for me was more like a rap battle. Sometimes in rap battles, things below the belt are said and then at the end, you can still shake hands and still be friends.

“My perspective was that we can go below the belt in music and there will still be love and respect outside of that.

“Before the song came out, he told me he borrowed a line from my song. My ‘Fvck you challenge’ is not meant to be as serious as some people are making it seem.

“I never planned to take the issue to court or anything and that was why I decided to use the ‘Fvck you challenge’ to tease him, but it is not like in a bad way,” she stated.

Speaking with media personality, Ifedayo Olarinde, popularly known as Daddy Freeze, on Monday night, Uwa narrated what transpired between himself and the Buga crooner.

According to him, Kizz Daniel refused to perform at the event because he (Kizz Daniel) was not with his gold chain.

“He (Kizz Daniel) only said the airline didn’t bring his bag that is why he cannot perform. Because his gold chain is not there. And he had a gold chain on his neck. He wanted everything,” Uwa said.

The show promoted notes that he booked Kizz Daniel through his management, Upfront and Personal Global, headed by Paul Okoye, popularly known as Paul O.

According to him, Paul O cried and begged Kizz Daniel to come for the show too.

“Three times, I knelt for Kizz Daniel and I begged him,” Uwa said

He added, “I paid this guy $60, 000 to perform on this show. I went down on my knees. I was like ‘Bro, you are damaging me. I am trying to build my company here. You are going to damage me’. I begged this guy ‘Save my career, save me’.”

The Nigerians in Diaspora Commission has announced that the singer has been released from police custody in Tanzania and will return to the country.
