Tanzanian songbird Vanessa Mdee is very angry after the spreading rumor that her boyfriend, Rotimi, beats her up.
She stated that her Instagram team had notified her that some of her fans here have been asking if rumors claiming Rotimi has been abusive to the singer are true.
After one of Rotimi’s ex-girlfriends opened up about her experience with an abusive boyfriend back in the day, this came to life. That said, during Vanessa’s podcast show, she set the record straight;
“I will not be bullied on social media; I will not be that person Wanahabari wataandika kitu juu yangu alafu nitabaki kimya. Team yangu ya social media, imenijuza kuhusu comments kutokana na watu kusema kuwa Rotimi ananipiga; ati ni mtu ambaye anapiga wanawake.”
She went on and said Rotimi is loving and can’t hit a woman;
“Number one, that is so far from the truth, sio ukweli na ni kitu ambacho kinaweza kuharibu sifa heshima ya Mwanaume au Mwanamke, especially when it’s not true. So nataka ku-clarify kitu kabla sijaendelea, imetokana na post ambayo ameandika ex-wake Rotimi. Ex wake Rotimi alikuwa anamzungumzia Ex-wake mwingine sio Rotimi na ameweka Wazi kuwa sio Rotimi anayemzungumzia…”
She concluded by saying Rotimi’s Ex was talking about someone and not the ‘Power Star;
“So yeye aliandika blog post zamani akimzungumzia Ex-wake sio Rotimi akisema yakwamba alikuwa na mipango na yeye na vitu vingi. Alikuwa anajaribu Kuguza jamii na wanawake ambao wamepitia vitu vingi kama hivyo.”
