Lyrics in the song go that he has noticed how they post each other on Instagram loving each other. He also notes that he knows their relationship is over.
Naona wameremeta Ngozi imenawili, una furaha now Kitanda hakina siri Zao la tendo, una kitumbo wow Mnapendezana Penzi liko kasi kasi Mkipostiana Instagram status
He extended an olive branch writing that
Hata kama mambo hayakwenda kama ambavyo mlipanga, hauna sababu ya kumchukia wala kumuombea mtu yoyote mabaya. Zaidi kwenye jambo jema lenye baraka
Ukielewa kuwa sio mara zote kitu kizuri kinadumu, hakuna changamoto yoyote itakayokusumbua.”

I didn’t blame them, after all it’s an uncommon and inexplicable feeling when you meet your soulmate.
And now on 6th January Rotimi and Vanessa jointly shared another message.
Rotimi and Vanessa Mdee’s love story began at the Essence Festival in America according to an interview they granted Essence magazine for its December issue.
They had tried hiding their romance, but in 2019, people pieced together their holidays and discovered they were an item.
Turns out according to the Essence interview,, that they met by chance at the Essence Festival, and that Rotimi was supposed to go for it with someone else.
“I actually was there with somebody else, just a weekend friend,” he admits. “She ended up getting sick. We were supposed to go to this party, and [she said] I don’t want to come. I said, ‘okay, it’s fine. I’m just going to go for 15 minutes.’ I end up going and some of my castmates were also there. That’s where I end up meeting [Vanessa.] Fifteen minutes turned into an hour and a half conversation. Nothing else mattered in the room.”
After this festival Vanessa went back to Tanzania, and they tried to make their long distance relationship work.
She went back to the States again, and the decision that she moves permanently to the US was made.
Rotimi said “I told her I don’t want you to go back to Africa. I want you to stay with me.”
Vanessa in the interview gushed about her feelings
“I was functioning and living, but not living,” she says. “I was existing, honestly. And he came in at a point where I needed to hear certain things that I couldn’t have heard from anyone else. His heart is so big and his love is so boundless. It’s the type that transforms you. And you honestly want to be the best version of yourself every single day.” READ THE EXCLUSIVE HERE
Tanzanian beauty Vanessa Mdee reached out to pal Maina Kageni about her American baes new song ‘Love Somebody’.
The song released on Monday Nov 30, has excited fans. Maina, who is a huge fan of Vanessa, also gushed as much about the new song.
He revealed that they chatted about it saying
“The video is set in the Garden of Eden, and you play Adam and Eve with Rotimi. How much more romantic can it get? I love it. It’s on rewind for me”
Fans first noticed their budding romance after the two began liking and commenting on each other’s Instagram photos. The lovebirds eventually made their relationship social media official, posting photos of one another on their pages.
During a radio interview in Tanzania, Vanessa shared that it took her only two days to realize, “this is my husband.”
“Love Somebody” follows the New Jersey native’s hit track “In My Bed” featuring Wale which reached over 95 million global streams, 11 million video views.
With all the rumors surrounding Vanessa Mdee’s love life with Rotimi, she has been forced to come clean and set the record straight.
In a video she posted, she explained that she was tired of what people were writing on the comment section under a couple of her posts because a lot are not true.
“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.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.” Vanessa ranted
Adding that when Rotimi’s ex spoke on being in an abusive relationship she was not referring to him but another ex. 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. 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.
Ms. Mdee aka Vee Money ended her rant from warning the media against purporting she is not safe on the relationship with Rotimi.
“So please Negative media, I’m not the one and I’m not going to be bullied by you anymore. So kama unaona kuna kitu ambacho unataka kuzungumza and you don’t have hard facts, please am ready to sue anyone and I’m going to sue anyone or media ambayo inaandika uongo kunihusu mimi ama Familia yangu au mpenzi wangu, tumechoka haipendezi. It’s not Okay. Am not going to be bullied by media. So I think that’s clear, Rotimi is not that person ambaye Ex-wake anamzungumzia ni Ex mwingine na ni wazi alizungimza hicho kitu hata kabla hajawa na Rotimi. So please let’s not do that, don’t spoil someone’s hard earned beautiful reputation.” She added
Her decision to quit music raised eyebrows especially when it comes to her relationship. But from the horses mouth, she is doing just fine.
As if that wasn’t enough, the musician dropped the bombshell that she would be quitting the music industry for the foreseeable future, saying that it was demonic.
“The reason why I had to leave the industry is because I needed to choose my life, the music industry is demonic. People will tell you half-truth about what really goes on, and the truth is I just wanna be an advocate for honesty and beauty and being a sincere advocate for what facing your demons can do for You,” she said in her podcast Deep Dive with Vanessa Mdee.
But what would the internet be without rumour-mongering and speculation? Some reports online are indicating that the real reason for her quitting so abruptly was that she was pregnant and expecting her first child with Nigerian-American boyfriend Rotimi.
This has even prompted some of her fans to question her on the claims.
During a live Question and Answer session with her fans on YouTube, Mdee was asked when the baby was due by a section of her fans and she responded saying that she is not yet pregnant.
And Mdee wasn’t taking anything to chance, even showing her flat belly to the fans, just to clear any doubts from the fans who would not believe her.
“Watu wanauliza vipi kuhusu mtoto. No, sina mimba bado. Not yet. But soon,” responded Vanessa Mdee.
Vanessa Mdee took a break from music in April this year after working on her craft for 13 years, without any rest but now she has decided to shelve her music career for good.
The musician shocked many when she declared that she would be leaving the music industry for good because it had become demonic.
In a 29 minutes talk on her on Podcast “Deep Dive with Vanessa Mdee”, Vee Money further stated that she is on a mission to be an advocate for honesty, beauty and what facing your demons can do for you.
“I don’t know who needs to hear this, but my mission is to be a light. I know that I would probably disappoint a few people and that’s Okay, I know that my fans don’t wanna hear this but guess what am never be too far away from you, trust me. The reason why I had to leave the industry is because I needed to choose my life, the music industry is demonic. People will tell you half-truth about what really goes on, and the truth is I just wanna be an advocate for honesty and beauty and being a sincere advocate for what facing your demons can do for You.”
“Now my fans are probably asking themselves right now; Are you gonna never sing again? Are we gonna never see you perform? Let me reiterate, I love music, I love to create, I love to perform, I’m a vessel, this is what I was brought on earth to be, but maybe I was a vessel to be here in this moment to have gone through everything that I have gone through so that I can tell you most honestly the truth about things you will never somewhere else,” said Vanessa Mdee.
Ms Mdee also disclosed that there was a time she was depressed, a state that drove her into becoming an alcoholic who could drink herself to sleep but then found desire and passion for life.
She finished off by advising aspiring stars not to kill themselves for the American dream;
“Trust me I used to wake up every morning questioning what the hell is this about, why are we doing this again, a lot of people used to say to me but you are in America now, (I live in Atlanta now) and that is the Mega of Music you have the perfect opportunity, I’m gonna tell you this, and this is a note to my African stars and artistes out there, don’t chase the American dream there are too many Selinaa Gomezs out here, not yet even conceived and there is only just a few chances not to kill your dream but be great where you are, that’s the only way to do it. They will come to you, organically no body is really giving chances to Africans like that, it’s when you shine in your space, is when the chances will come to you. Don’t kill yourself chasing the American dream,” said Ms. Mdee.
Vanessa has been dating Power actor Rotimi who is popularly known as Andre Coleman in the series and were first spotted together back in October 2019.
