'Kai Wangu' hit maker Nadia Mukami has been forced to publicly denounce claims that she got funding for her new business from sponsors and had nothing much to do with the venture.

Nadia excitedly launched her new baby, Nadia Nail Bar and Beauty Parlour located at Koinange Street in Nairobi CBD on Christmas Eve in a small but luxurious event attended by friends, family, and online media outlets.

However, barely a month after its launch claims have been doing the circles online that she doesn't own the business.


"People will always criticize me in a bad way, some will claim I have been sponsored but only my team and those close to me understand the struggle I went through to launch this parlor.

The sleepless nights, sometimes the lack of funds (before completion), and all that," Nadia said responding to the claims 

Does this make you think of Betty Kyallo and her salon?


The mother of one went on to highlight that she has been working hard enough both in her music and with endorsements that she's been securing and with that, making money well to help her earn enough to start the beauty venture.

"For those who follow what I do, they see me doing shows, the other day I did one with Safaricom and was handsomely paid.

I have been working with EABL for the longest time. I mean why would someone think I can't afford to start such a business?" The musician stated seemingly upset by such allegations.

She went on to address doubting Thomas' letting them know that the business was 100% hers.

"This is a 100% Nadia Mukami project which if I am being honest cost me over 1.2 million shillings.

The money went into renovating the space to working on the interior designs including installing the gypsum which was crazy expensive to every other set up that is in that place." Nadia highlighted.
