Kenyan singer Victoria Kimani made the news some days after her explosive ‘Fvck You’ cover hit the internet. Her .’Fvck You Challenge’ gained a lot of buzz because it was controversial and there was some sublime name calling too.
She had called out Ycee for stealing her lyrics without giving credit and took a subtle swipe at Tiwa Savage.
Speaking to Saturday Beats, the Kenyan singer says she hold no grudges against anyone as she was just moving with the flow.
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.
The ‘Show’ crooner admitted that she had a bad experience during her stint at Chocolate City.
“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.
“It wasn’t like I forgot about the country, after having a bad experience in Chocolate City, I just wanted to make sure that if I am doing anything in Nigeria, then it is done correctly. I didn’t just want to be there in everyone’s face”, she said.
She also said despite name calling Ycee on her ‘Fvck You’ cover she is still good friends with him.
“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.
“My perspective was that we can go below the belt in music and there will still be love and respect outside of that”, she said.
