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!
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
