Taking all the Money

“I have been performing all over the world and right now I live in Huruma because of Joe Mwangi. I have performed in Rwanda, Germany, China and I have not gotten even a single penny, my mother is really suffering, as we talk she sells sweets and cigarettes at night and we live in a single room. It is really very sad people are telling me I’m rude, that I’m a brat because I post things on Instagram which I don’t know. I don’t have access to my social media accounts, its Joe Mwangi who controls them” said Wendy Waeni.

Ms Waeni went on to say that she has forgiven Joe Mwangi who was taking advantage of her, and all she wants is for him to hand over all her social media accounts.
