YouTuber and Influencer Elodie Zone shocked many Kenyans yesterday with some explosive remarks concerning musician Nviiri the Storyteller.
She accused the Afrosol singer of being abusive in their relationship. The model who is at the Coast, started a series of Instagram stories that featured Nviiri, showing them landing at the airport.
On Sunday night, Elodie, in a QnA session, officially confirmed that she is not dating the singer, alleging that he has been abusive towards her.
“Physical, mental, verbal and emotional abuse towards women is unacceptable! I want to make it clear that I am NOT dating Nviiri. We just met at the Coast, but the reason that I left him is the same reason that has come up as we are ‘respectful friends’. I’ve worked too damn hard as a woman to love myself. To be confident.”
Elodie added that she has decided that she doesn’t owe any ‘boy’ anything. When asked whether it was Nviiri who had left her stranded at a party a few months ago, she said,
“Yup. January 1st. There are videos online of him slamming me against a table and leaving me and my baby cousins at a club past curfew. Cross-check with ‘my life is good’ highlight. The first vid,” she confirmed.
The rumours going across social media were that the ‘friend’ who had been accused, was Nviiri as the two had been rumored to be dating.
In a March interview at Kiss 100 with Kamene and Jalas, Nviiri squashed the allegations saying that it was not him being addressed in Elodie’s post.
“It is definitely not me because I like dealing with my issues at home. I do not know who she was talking about. The thing is we break up and makeup so it is what it is,” said Nviiri.
He added in May, “We have been friends for eight years. We kept our relationship a secret for months without telling people we were dating. We needed to understand ourselves, are we strong enough for the public because they can be ruthless.”Our decision was to keep it low until we were ready to announce it. It affects our brands in a way…will I still continue being Nviiri the ladies’ man, bwana pombe sigara, single man? Dynamics change. And for her, will she continue being the same role model? By the time people came to find out about it, we were already confident about our relationship.”
Nviiri has now spoken about the new allegations and all he had to say was, “For everyone asking, NIKO SAWA, thank you for reaching out.”
