Tanzanian Musician and Rapper Nay wa Mitego has made audacious claims that Kenyan women value money more than love.
He proposed that by the time you go on your second date, they’re already requesting money for other expenses like gas for the stove.
He also noticed that these highly educated women value their physical appearance more than their intelligence when it comes to earning a living.
Nay wa Mitego’s comments highlighted his perception of Kenyan women’s priorities.
According to him, financial matters seem to dominate their interactions.
Further requests for money surfaced early in relationships.
The observation suggested a certain level of materialism among the Kenyan women he has encountered.
Moreover, Nay wa Mitego pointed out the paradox of Kenyan women.
Despite being well-educated, they seemingly relied on their physical appearance for financial gain.
His statements raised questions about the intersection of financial independence, education, and gender dynamics within Kenyan society.
Kenyans have been left speculating on the new track targeting an unknown country.
The song, “Wapi huko”, hits back at a certain country that is plagued with poor leadership, corruption, hunger and lack of employment opportunities for its youth.
In the song, Nay narrates about how the country looks beautiful and prosperous in the eyes of the rest of the world, but its people are suffering under careless leaders, its youth are languishing in poverty and its girls are now more into money than love.
Further, the rapper disses young men for running after sugar mummies, speaking fluent English and bragging how their country is superior to their neighbours, but back home they don’t have even electricity.
Also, Nay says the unnamed country now has many single mothers, many of whom are looking for money and are quick to give in once you show them the money.
The song has so far elicited debate on Twitter, with Kenyans torn between whether the singer is targeting us, or he is simply pointing out to the problems plaguing his country.
One Conrad Kulo said: “Tanzania is literally cooking us. The Jirani hana unga, hana umeme, ni kingereza tu slur has now been cooked in the studio, and let me tell you, Maina, William Ruto must go.”
However, X user Mwabili Mwagodi differed with him, saying Nay is simply targeting Tanzanian leadership.
“It’s crazy how Kenyans have completely not understood that Ney wa Mitego is mocking Tanzania’s leadership for mocking Kenya yet Tanzania is the one in the pits. You guys will never appreciate Bongo Flava for what it is, a literacy masterpiece,” Mwagodi said.
Kenya Kwanza administration top critic Gabriel Oguda also said Tanzanians are targeting Kenya with the song.
“Yaani imefika mahali jirani Tanzania have also decided to mock us openly and they know we will do them nothing? Bwana a country that used to shake like a leaf in our presence now going after us without fear? Bwana ama God sent Ruto to punish us and we don’t know?” Oguda said.
Most of the things Nay talks about in the song have been experienced in Kenya.
They include the high cost of living, unemployment and lack of access to basic needs among many people.
President Ruto has also been highly criticised for endless taxes imposed on Kenyans, leading to a high cost of living.
