Singer Tanasha Donna has been forced to apologize over failure to pay Makeup artist Zena Glam (Sylvia) her dues, amounting to Sh15K.
In her update, Donna mentioned that she had cleared the bill, taking full responsibility of the incident with an explanation that she rarely handles her finances, during video shoots. The bill in question is said to have been incurred during the Kalypso video shoot in November last year.
“Let me make one thing clear. It’s just came to my attention recently that one of the makeup artistes for my previous videos payment wasn’t made, as I never personally handle anything to do with finances for my projects myself. I have a team for that, however I understand that my name is the one that will be in jeopardized and obviously not my person handling my finances! Had I known this earlier, this would have been long sorted. I would like to state that the payment has been made. I apologize on behalf of myself and my team for my inconveniences caused., this was not done deliberately, our schedules have been extremely hectic recently, however it’s no excuse,” said Tanasha Donna.
Ms Donna’s statement comes days after she was called out by former Ebru TV Presenter Dana de Grazia, who said the singer had refused to pay her friend, makeup artist-Zena Glam (Sylvia)
After the bill was cleared, Ms Grazia went back to report that her friend had received the cash and her public outcry was not aimed at ruining anyone’s reputation.
She has Paid
“Sylvia is my good friend for years and she asked me to speak up about it somewhere because I have a larger platform than her It’s likely that if she had tried to do this herself she would not have been listened to. And I deleted the post for Monday because I don’t feel like leaving such negativity comments on my page if you wanna hate on these videos fine, but it’s because truth hurts I am tagging media outlets As a gesture of goodwill to spread this good news. I am happy to confirm that after over two months and mounting public pressure @tanashadonna Has fulfilled on her word. I would like to re-state (I said it in my video) That this was never about attacking who she is as a person, it was about supporting my friend and I believe this message proves that our efforts worked. I cannot speak to the reason Tanasha or her “team” was unable to pay in a more timely manner but I am happy that at the end of the day, after the time and effort put in, promises were fulfilled,” Dana de Grazia.
