Kenyan-born singer, Victoria Kimani, who recently caused a stir last week after she dropped her version of Kizz Daniel’s fvckyouchallenge, which she called out Rapper, Ycee and a Particular 45-year-old Female Artiste.
However, in subsequent lines in her song, she seemed to have insulted the Nigerian female artiste 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 Punch’s 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”.
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.”
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.
