Mwalimu Rachel was recently forced to explain some steamy photos she took with Timmy Tdat last year following a Twitter brawl.
The NRG lead presenter got into it with a Twitter influencer after NRG decided to host con artist Wilkins Fadhili. Other Twitter users accused NRG radio of aggressive clout chasing after the interview that seemed to exonerate Wilkins.
In response to all the hate coming the NRG way, Mwalimu sent out a series of tweets that claimed that some of those influencers roasting NRG radio have wined and dined with them.
“#KeepTheSameEnergy on and off these fake twitter streets. Some of you are here throwing stones yet tukipull footage from our studio we shall see you dancing inside our studios and drinking. Hata haya hamna? Man. You really are the S.I unit of fake and two-faced. Aunty will pray4u,” read one tweet.
While another read “Let’s face it. Some so-called big wigs here have trieeeeed to join radio but failed. Terribly. And that’s why they are so bitter here towards radio stations/ personalities. There is an opinion you can raise in a decent manner and you will be heard. #MuteDarkEnergy.”
As things got heated on the platform, some Kenyans on Twitter started posting and commenting on the steamy photos she took with her former co-host Timmy.
A situation that Mwalimu responded with “To those posting the pic with Timmy... ah. Predictable. But you see, once u mess up admit it & move on with ur life my people, no one can hurt u.”
She also shared a link to an article on her website where she apologized over the photos. She also explained that she succumbed to pressure to look edgy and took the steamy photos.
“What you don’t know is that the whole time we took the pictures, we were laughing at how silly we felt. Impatience from one end + adrenaline from my end = Bad decisions.
I have learnt that. Before I knew it the pictures were out there making rounds. Then you know that feeling of ‘I done messed up?’ It started creeping in. It starts off slowly, you try to suppress it, distract yourself, tell yourself you have nothing to worry about, but it’s still there. Lingering. Worst.Feeling.Ever.
...There’s immense pressure about being a wife, a mother and an entertainer at the same damn time. Things you wanna do but can’t, things you wanna say but shouldn’t. I keep praying that I know how to navigate those waters…This is to my audience, my admirers, even my haters who have been waitiiing for me to mess up. What I did was wrong. I can admit that. That is how I know I’m in a good space,” read her post in part.
