Kenya: Wawesh Threatens to Sue Over Sana's Sexy Video

Mfalme Wa Mapenzi -Sanaipei ( Resource: Mfalme Wa Mapenzi -Sanaipei )

SINGER Sanaipei Tande is smack in the middle of a brewing feud over the release of her super sensual music video, Mfalme wa Mapenzi.

The music video shot by Onfon Media wasn't supposed to be released without the consent of producer Wawesh and label music director Elijah Girimani. Apparently Onfon was to shoot all the music videos for the album but "there were issues with their work". The song is part of the first of its kind compilation R&B album that is purely done in Swahili titled Mahaba.

According to Elijah, "Onfon Media, without the consent of the producers, released the video. The producers are now threatening to sue for damages."

It is believed that Wawesh wanted the re-shoot of the video in the US where Leo Faya, formerly of Capital FM, was putting final touches to an ambitious marketing campaign for the entire album. The album will feature songs from other Kenyan stars like Rabbit, Frenchboy, James of Gogsimo and Stan .

Commenting on the issue, Sana said: "Oh, drama as always!"

However, our efforts to reach Onfone Media's Brian Mhando for a comment were fruitless.
