Brenda Otieno, the video vixen who was featured on Bahati’s 2021 smash hit ‘Adhiambo’ featuring Ohangla maestro Prince Indah, now says she was never paid for her services.
Ms. Otieno, taking to her Instagram stories to rant, accused the singer and his team of being “rude and disrespectful” during the course of their arrangement.
According to her, the singer was paying the video vixens Ksh.10,000 each, but she would not take the amount as she felt she deserved more considering the fact that the shoot had lasted the whole day.Ms. Otieno further stated that she regrets ever being a part of the song, adding that it made other people’s perception of her lifestyle change.
“I was once a vixen in Adhiambo song. I regret it because it makes some people think it’s one of the so-called big Nairobi men funding my lifestyle. Let it be known to you Bahati and his team never paid me a penny, I have never cared since then coz I didn’t feel I badly needed that money,” she said.
“Yes Bahati and his team never paid me so let nobody think I have contact with those rude and disrespectful humans. Been [quiet] since coz I felt it wasn’t big deal after all my pride wouldn’t allow me get paid 10K for a whole day shoot. You either pay what [I’m] worth or you keep your cheap money.”
Ms. Otieno went on to reveal that she is now dating a “hot Nigerian dude”, lives in the upscale Kilimani neighbourhood of Nairobi and drives a Ksh.1.4 million car.
‘Adhiambo’, which was released on October 28, 2021 now boasts over 13 million views on YouTube.
