Trouble started after Akothee posted a photo of her and fellow female artiste Victoria Kimani enjoying some time on the beach.
Nyakundi replied by posting the response below
Well Akothee is not impressed and as you know she has zero chills thus she decided to give Cyprian a dose of his own medicine. Read her response below
“Just Monday vibes, ever wondered why bees have their own beehive and flies hope from one dustbin to the other , Bees have a selective process of searching for raw materials like pollen bring back and build a beehive, that human beings scramble for, flies don’t have selective process in life ,? So they even hope onto rotten wounds weather dead or alive, forgetting that some wounds are toxic and might not be digested causing them stomach upset or death. In short , I have never heard anyone protect the flies coz they got no value in life, they are annoying & disgusting just to cause destruction so is Nyakundi , tell this broke A$$ MAN to go get A life, men are busy buying range rovers and he is busy carrying politicians handbags left and right, chasing for next news , licking one bottle of fanta for 2 hours in sankara !

I will insult you, arrest you ,and build your entire village a refugee camp, pieronondoni, when you will stop paying rent, you will know the meaning of life, wasted sperm, you embarrass your parents .”
“Show me your wife and children, or are you impotent, enemy of progress, you belong inside a condom, enjoy 2 minutes of fame. I live in sankara for more than a week, you only come there to be bought fanta with other men and I am not a politician, and I don’t date frozen heads like you briefcase slave.

Kenyan Singer/Songwriter, Victoria Kimani lands a major endorsement deal with Maybelline New York, the world’s leading cosmetic brand.
The sensational Afropop singer is excited to announce the lucrative partnership deal with the global cosmetic giant.
The songstress joins the likes of Jourdan Dunn and Gigi Hadid in landing a Maybelline deal, but is the first African artist to collaborate with the brand, setting a new precedent for African artists in both the music and business world. Talk about Black Girl Magic!
“I am very excited to partner with Maybelline NY especially here in Kenya, Africa only because of my love for Maybelline products but for what Maybelline stands for. The brand has always shared my personal view and philosophy as it pertains to my goals to “MAKE IT HAPPEN””.
Victoria Kimani is currently riding high on hew new single Boom.
She has curved a niche for herself in the music industry and we celebrate her for this.
Hard as it may seem to believe, Victoria opened up on how she attempted to play ball but she never realized she was soo bad at it. She wrote
” Did I ever tell you guys about the time I played ball ( or attempted ) while I was in primary school for the church team…. and I was so bad I didn’t even get the “best improved” metal …. so I went for cheerleading and aced it!!!! It’s good to know your calling in life ….. 😢”
Among other female celebrities who have tried their hand at football include Nana Gecaga.
She has also battled alcohol addiction, and in a moving message, she confessed
“The person you see here today has had many lives before who I am today. My passion was actually sports. I was a very big athlete back in the day, and I actually qualified for the ’96 Olympics.
I used to love, soccer, football and basketball. At the same time, I also wanted to be a game changer and help people, because if you are in a position where you can help, just help because it doesn’t cost you anything.My first year at the university in America was very rocky, and that is where my everything fell apart. I was an addict of alcohol but I was able to go to rehab and from there, it’s been 19 years without drinking.”
It definitely builds character because it takes a lot of strength to acknowledge that you have a problem, whatever it is. Getting out of it is something I am happy about because most people do not manage.”
Victoria Kimani is not very fond of Kenyan music fans at the moment. She has been lamenting the way +254 fans are unsupportive of her attempts to become a bigger presence in the East African market.
The musician has also claimed that Nigerians are the ones that are responsible for all the success she has had. The singer, who is currently in Nairobi and will be performing on Friday, has also got another bone to pick.
With who? Former radio presenter Angela Angwenyi, who was once a very popular face on both radio and T.V, was not exactly a fan of hers.
She posted the rant in an exclusive celebrity group saying that Angela Angwenyi was even in a position to help her once but chose not to because she hated her. She wrote:
“I met a Nigerian DJ who used to play my music in the African clubs in Atlanta. Back then I used to beg Fully Focus to support me and play my tracks….but the Nigerian DJ is the guy who supported. He told me ‘Vee, you have a beautiful voice, do a remix to Ice Prince song Oleku…’. I did just that ….And Killed it…. He sent it to thousands of blogs and BOOM…… 8 MONTHS after that, I get a tweet from Chocolate City In Nigeria,” went her rant.
They SAID they wanted to open a branch in Kenya…. And hired Angela Angwenyi ( who hated me from jump…..not sure why 😢) Altho she was at Radio, ehhh she didnt really pump my sh*t…. For some reason I couldn’t get gigs, ( banned from blankets…..not sure why) even tho Mtoto, Oya, Whoa ft prezzo & AY, Prokoto ft Diamond and Ommy Dimpoz was the littest thing poppin at the time….”
Victoria Kimani is a musical force to reckon with and she has proven that her music is hit material. She is in the music game to win. No matter what.
Victoria is currently doing a national tour for her album ‘SAFARI’ and has already released the dates when she’ll be performing in different counties.
The Mtoto hitmaker has been quite vocal about the Kenyan industry and how she has been judged music-wise ever since she was signed to Nigerian based record label, Chocolate City.
Last year she decided to leave the record label to work independently, but still she has fallen victim to public scrutiny.
In a past interview with Adelle Onyango and Shaffie Weru, Victoria spilled on the main reason why she left the record label.
“You know like every contract has an expiry date. The contract was over and to be honest with you, most of the time I was on the label, I felt like an independent artiste anyway. I did most things by myself. So it was just time for me to step out on my own and do my own thing and not have to split money with anybody.”
Well, Victoria has been through a lot and just because she doesn’t talk about it doesn’t mean she hasn’t had her fair share of struggles.
She took her sweet time and poured her heart out exclusively to a celebrity WhatsApp group about how some celebrities never supported her music journey. She was not about to sugarcoat.
Kiss100.co.ke saw the full post on the Whatsapp group where she even named some of the celebrities.
“I met a Nigerian DJ who used to play my music in the African clubs in Atlanta. Back then I used to beg Fully Focus to support me and play my tracks….but the Nigerian DJ is the guy who supported. He told me ‘Vee, you have a beautiful voice, do a remix to Ice Prince song Oleku…’. I did just that ….And Killed it…. He sent it to thousands of blogs and BOOM…… 8 MONTHS after that, I get a tweet from Chocolate City In Nigeria.
She went on to reveal how the record label wanted to open a branch in Kenya, but a lady radio presenter didn’t like her and didn’t put any effort to push her music.
“They SAID they wanted to open a branch in Kenya…. And hired Angela Angwenyi ( who hated me from jump…..not sure why 😢) Altho she was at Radio, ehhh she didnt really pump my shit…. For some reason I couldnt get gigs, ( banned from blankets…..not sure why) even tho Mtoto, Oya, Whoa ft prezzo & AY, Prokoto ft Diamond and Ommy Dimpoz was the littest thing poppin at the time….”
These are just but a few of the things Victoria has gone through while in the industry.
One wise man once said, “There will be many people who doubt you but when you’re partying on your yacht they’ll want an invite.”
“Honestly, I feel like a virgin right now, my love life has been non-existent. I’ve not been in a relationship for like six months now and I haven’t tried to bother like to try find someone else,” she said in an interview Ebru TV.
The singer took to Instagram to post a photo of herself leaning on a sleek Mercedes Benz. Fans came in with those adorable comments, for she was looking all fierce and sexy.
Always the good girl…. better pay off one day……..😂😂😂
She’s currently riding high with her new album, “Safari”. Victoria Kimani is not stopping there, she’s slaying her way through January.
The stylish, sexy and talented singer has done a recent sexy photo shoot with photographer Tintseh and I must say that it is hot. This is one of her latest projects and it seems that she will be here for the coming months. There is an upcoming countrywide tour.
Victoria was once signed to Nigerian record label Chocolate City but moved on after a while. Explaining the happening, she exclusively told Kiss FM that “every contract has an expiry date. The contract was over and to be honest with you, most of the time I was on the label, I felt like an independent artiste anyway. I did most things by myself. So it was just time for me to step out on my own and do my own thing and not have to split money with anybody.”
She is not stopping. Here latest release, “China Love” with R. City has been the talk of town. Have you listened to the song?
DJ creme is one of the most sought out Dj’s in the country, who has made a name for himself and of late he’s been working on different projects that seem to be going pretty well. Last year, he brought together Sudi Boy and Kenya’s songstress Wahu to release Hadi Lini.
Creme is following in the steps of international Dj’s like DJ Khalid who bring big artistes together in one song.This year he has brought two of the greatest artistes Victoria Kimani and Redsan in a major hit dubbed’ Live ItUp’. The song was officially launched last Friday in a popular TV show, but the video was uploaded early this week. The song is definitely a club banger, one cannot help but dance to it anytime it plays.
Victoria Kimani is an American-born Kenyan singer, actress, songwriter and entertainer. She has earned a number of nominations, with her singles receiving numerous airplay across Africa. Victoria and Redsan no doubt did justice to the song considering the fact they both sing different genres.
The video is shot with very quality visuals in an outdoor setup. Female and male dancers are seen dancing their hearts out, the crowd in the video are being hyped up by the DJ.
She is known for her gorgeous looks and charming personality. Vanessa Mdee also known as ‘Vee Money’ is one of East Africa’s top female artistes, taking over the entertainment industry by storm. Born in 1988 Vanessa is a television presenter, radio host, singer, songwriter and rapper.
Her music career began when she was asked to perform and open for the CECAFA cup back in 2011. She has worked with big names in the music industry such as AY, Ommy Dimples and Navy Kenzo, Ice Prince Zamani among others.
Apart from her petite body, she has an amazing voice. The ‘closer’ hit maker takes pride in her appearance and how she styles her look from top to bottom and she is a self confessed social media addict. As she turns a year older and wiser, her fellow music artistes joined in showering her with sweet birthday messages.
