Joe Mwangi was trending all night and morning after gymnast Wendy Waeni claimed on live TV that she has been travelling and going for gigs all over the world but she has never received a penny for her hard work.

Jeff Koinange brought three girls to the show who have made an impact in society at an early age and Wendy Waeni is among them. A girl who has gotten recognition for her talent. After fame knocked at her door, she needed a manager who would organize her tours and Joe Mwangi played the part.


According to her story, Joe was a man after her money. She travelled the world to grace various stages with her talent and the pay never got to her nor her mother. Wendy said they are living in very poor conditions in a one-room house as her mother sells cigarettes and sweets to feed them.

I have performed all over the world but I’ve never gotten a penny from it and that is because of my previous manager (Joe Mwangi). EVER SINCE I STARTED PERFORMING ACROSS THE GLOBE, MY MUM HAS NEVER GOTTEN A SINGLE PENNY.

This is the question Jeff Koinange asked that got Wendy Waeni crying

Joe has responded to claims that he used the young girl for his personal gains. He took to Twitter to defend himself, saying he never left the country in the company of the gymnast.

ON THE VIDEO, IT HAS BEEN SAID THAT I (JOE) HAS TRAVELED ALL OVER THE WORLD WITH WENDY,
FACT : I HAVE NEVER, NEVER EVER LEFT THIS COUNTRY IN THE COMPANY OF WENDY WAENI.
ANYBODY WITH ANY PROOF THAT I FLEW OUT ANY GIVEN TIME WITH HER, PUT IT HERE  

He added,

ITS ALLEGED THAT FOR MORE THAN 5 YRS WENDY HAS NEVER RECEIVED A PENNY I MEAN.WHICH PARENT IN THIS WORLD WILL ALLOW HIS/HER KID TO BE MISUSED FOR NOT 1 MONTH, NOT 1 YEAR,BUT 5 YEARS?????
