Kenyan music star and Chocolate City artist Victoria Kimani has just about had it with the negativity, rumours, gossips, hypocrisy, assumptions and more that she has had to endure in the music industry.

She posted a heartfelt message on her Instagram page saying:

People need to start respecting female entertainers, presenters, Actors, artists, Models, dancers, business women , PR, managers , PA,s, singers, stylists , DJ’s , designers…and Generally all positions in the Entertainment field in Africa…. The amount of negativity, rumors, gossip, assumptions, judgement , hypocrisy , Threats and over all evil eye that is pointed towards These particular women is out of this world!

NO!!

Just because I’m a female doesn’t mean I work for free!! NO! Just because I’m a business woman with standards doesn’t make me a Bi$(h …. Yes…

If I want to date someone that’s A.) My business and B.) Up to my better judgement on who I want to invite into my life. C.) It’s complicated …. AND ….NO…. Just because I am singing to you in a cute outfit on stage and on your TV… Does NOT MAKE ME A PROSTITUTE …

There are too many People praying for me … For me to fall into the hands of the ENEMY so freely and easily …. I work DAMN hard … I have been working on, dreaming about, planning for, building towards, sweating , crying, praying , waiting for, lost friends , faced loneliness , looked stupid, hated on, sabotaged , made mistakes , been under-rated and still raise up and be THE BADDEST … I respect ME… I LOVE ME….I’m Extremely Proud of me … And I respect YOU and Love you too. Respect the grind and go get yours too! #OneLove #AFRICAmustWakeUP #RESPECTtheWOMANonHERgrind#STRONGgirl

    Wowwww… I’m impressed. You go girl. Africa needs to wake up and realise that the way the African woman is treated determines how far Africa will go and be respected in the world. The African woman is strong, beautiful and powerful. Respect her…

    Hmm I guess dressing like a call girl 80% of the time and sleeping with wizkid, iceprince and a few others in the entertainment industry doesn’t necessarily make Miss kimani a prostitue but is does make people question if you are selling music or something else.

    Female artists in Africa need to understand the social constructs existing in Africa…
    There is a double standard and as a smart women your mission should not be to be ‘equal’ but to have ‘equity’… It is important that females consider the dynamics of the culture you live in.
    You are NOT a western artist so you must behave accordingly and know how to balance classy sassy and still maintaining sex appeal without being trashy and looking like you sell your body for beats!
    Hanging around with Emma Nyra who slept her way to the ‘top’ isn’t helping this Kenyan girls reputation.
    Present yourself how you wish to be addressed and eventually people will respect what you have to offer!

      I bet Jamison B was in the room each time Kimani slept with Wizkid, Iceprince and a few others. I mean…how else could one make such a factual statement? shay?

      gbam. beyonce dresses sultry and sexy but no one calls her a hoe like rihanna and nick minaj because she conducts herself well in public and hasn’t slept with every musician i america.

      PREACH ! She needs to OWN UP to how she really got popping in Naija ! For someone who is from Kenya she is really trying hard to be accepted in Nigeria …

      Whether Jamison B was “in the room when” regarding her dating life, whether those are facts or not, he spoke some wisdom, and Miss Kimani and everyone else, whether in the entertainment industry or not, would be wise to take the advice and some food for deep thought. Morality is morality,you cannot change it, you can’t unlegislate it, you can’t pass a law and stop it; it is natural, innate; there are moral codes, there is something inherent in man, African, Western, Asian, Middle Eastern, whatever, that tells us what is right and what is wrong, it is just that some choose to suppress, or, even kill that voice, whilst others choose to listen and obey. “Dress as you want to be addressed.” “Behave as you wish to be beheld.” i.e. “Conduct yourself and present yourself in the manner you want people to perceive you and relate to you.” I’m still a work in progress as well, and may The Almighty God in His mercy help all of us.

      Bia e b like say u dey inside the room when she is having sex with d artistes u mentioned. u shud b ashamed for uttering such words against a woman. If na nicki minaj or beyonce or rihanna dress d way dey dress n no one sees dem as prostitutes . they r making their bucks with deir gorgeous body. Got it you flaunt it. Kimani is sexy, deal with it and hug a transformer. #sips coffee#

    She is right tho
    This internet age we are in has really brought out the Negative side of people
    If you can;t criticise someone in a positive way then DON’T
    These people are humans as well and many may act like they dont care but really it does affect them
    There is always a polite way to insult people AKA throwing shades *side eyes*

    This is Africa. The society won’t change its time-tested values and norms to suit your western-lifestyle fantansies. You either get bye with all those scrutiny or relocate to America.

    @Jamison B… Like seriously… You know all these. These are the kind of people Victoria is talking about. Can people just stop minding other people’s business and face theirs. I’m no fan of Victoria, and I’m a bit indifferent to her music, so it’s not like I’m trying to give any support because I’m a fan. I was just taken aback by your comment. You were there when she slept with these artistes, shei?. Joblessness of the highest order. I think we should stop judging all these people, they are humans like us, they face depression like some of us do. They also feel that vacuum that needs to be filled. Stop pointing dirty fingers, what looks like a fact is most times, not the truth. If you must criticise, make it a constructive criticism. Your life is not any better when you, out of bitterness, try to bring another person down. We are all in this struggle. It’s a new year, intelligent bellanaijarians.

    When you see a prostitute at night, she can’t be mistaken
    The question is do you dress like one?
    You are not the only singer/actress/artiste…. What makes them call you one?
    When people starts gossiping, they must have seen something
    Let your light so shine that people will find you faultless
    Check yourself

    That is America, that’s their culture… we have a different cultural look olodo. Do people know what culture and beliefs are anymore, African culture is totally differently, stop trying to be westernize, it’s not that deep!

      what the heck culture you talking about. Go ask your grandma ma how they do traditional dance back in the day. You are acusing people of being westernized whilst judging with your western acquired religion Mtchewwww. Whose an Olodo now? agbaya

      You realise Christianity and Islam aren’t “Western” religions right?

      You realise a majority of Nigerian were converted by fellow Nigerians?

      You realise a majority of Nigerians are actually from their village where they do the traditional dance to their heart’s content if that’s the sole criteria for “culture”……………..which it isn’t.

      Besides he/she is judging not from a religious standpoint but from what is assumed to be a cultural one. Perhaps you should feel less proud of your logic.

      Your repetitious use of the word REALISE doesn’t make you sound learned in fact it has the opposite effect. Do you REALISE how delusional you sound!!?. LIKE you got to make shitup to prove a pointless point. I REALISE you full of crap.

    Unfortunately, I disagree. Majority of them (even the married lot) often do the unspeakable just to maintain a certain life style. I don catch some of una red handed but I won’t dish out names. Just do you why you are still relevant…I don’t think we really give a crap who you share your German juice with.

    Go Kimani boo…I adore u. who is perfect?? no one has a right to judge her. whether or not she goes naked is none of ur business, if u don’t like her, look the other way n shut up. dont davido and the other st..pid artist fill their boring videos with naked girls?? why are they complaining about her?? free her abeg!!

    She is almost naked in all her clips. Poor sense of dressing. Why is no one calling Genevieve Nnaji a prostitute? Dress the way you want to be addressed. Let her go and take several seats. You don’t show your ass to the world and expect a trophy for that. Even Davido and a host of others should stop bringing nude girls to our TV sets. We are tired of the indecency. Try something else!!!

    Pls go back to Kenya if it’s affecting you like that. If you carry yourself well no one will call you a prostitute. Seyi shay does sexy all the time but you don’t see her writing annoying ass epistles on Instagram. Get out of the kitchen if you can stand the heat! It’s not by force.

    Sidenote: those your outfits are farrrrrr from cute. Trashy is what you might have wanted to go for perhaps?

    It’s unfair to call her aa prostitute. But the indecent dressing in d music industry is getting very alarming. Half naked gurls pushn dia bum into the camera. Whn did all ds one start? Never thot a tym wld cm whn African vid go strt to resemble American vid o. Evn d poorest musicians somehow get ladies to dance naked. Women we are more than that!!! We r more than our body! We have a brain!! So this reliance on sexuality to gain relevance is only fast tracking us into rubbish! Take a page 4rm adele’s music career, Wwe never see breast once buh we all screaming ‘hello from the other syddddddd”. Biko ladies u dnt Hv 2 b naked to prove ur worth to anybody.

  19. ElessarisElendil

    January 14, 2016 at 4:35 am

    Meh. To be fair in the old days Miss Kimani’s outfits wouldn’t be viewed as abnormal especially in the South(Jigida and the half wrapper) and especially for an entertainer, I mean people how do you think your great great grand Mother made your great great grand Father initiate third party talks for marriage?? Unless it was a betrothal, best believe it was by strutting her stuff.

    However culture has been dynamic and the Nigerian culture is now more Victorian England/ Ottoman in its puritanical morality than anything our Southern or Pre Dan Fodio Northern ancestors would recognise.

    I sympathise but Miss Kimani simply has to adapt or endure, it is the way it is. Best of luck to her.

    well hmm….its a double edged sword. using the sexy to attract attention will attract some of the wrong attention as well. thats just it. so using the sexy is a decision u have to make, is it worth it?. hell, even if you aint using the sexy, so far as you are attractive, u gonna attract sexual attention as a female. thats one of the annoying things that u have to deal with as a female in the spotlight. as far as being called a prostitute, those people are trying to hurt ur feelings. u have to develop a tough skin. so far as ur conscience is clear, let them stew in their jealousy and hate. now as far as sexually mingling with males in the industry,me say: “don’t poo-poo where u chop.” better to keep ur love life separate. and if u do end up with a fellow artist make sure its a serious relationship. all eyes on u! so watch what u do….as a female, u will be in the spotlight for ur sexual attractiveness if not talent and there will be people ready and waiting to have a taste cuz you are the new flavor. my own is: be as financially independent from the producers, labels, etc as possible so u don’t need the guys in the industry so much, because they will use their power as a bargaining chip and sometimes they will expect to get in your pants to even move an inch, in that case u need to be in the position to walk away. if possible, learn how to write music, and produce songs. there are so many softwares out there life ableton or garageband. at least if you can get your demo ready guys will take you more seriously. this is a business, not just a fashion show ladies, get professional, commit to it, build your songwriting skills and in the end u can have a career in front or behind the scenes.

    @victoria kimani, Africa is awake you should wake up too. Africa won’t change its cultural perceptions irrespective of the endless western influences we Africans accept and emulate. We are Africans, get used to it or “dress the way you want to be addressed”.
