“Am just shocked a 19 year old is publicly happy to say that she allows men to pay her for sex and even says she has a rate card for it!” the Maombi hit maker posted on her Twitter handle.
“All jokes aside ,we need to counsel our young girls and teach them about the beauty of hustle and hardwork. The beauty of independency as women!” Ms Mukami added.
Nadia mukami made her name as a musucian while studying at Maseno University when she released her first song while still in her first year of college.
The 23 year old Afro-pop musician has grown to become a household name in the Kenyan entertainment industry releasing hit song after hit song.
Commenting on the issue about the Shakilla issue, Ms Mukami was concerned that many ladies are abandoning the hardworking life for an easy way out that entails messing up with their dignity.
“Especially now that our young sisters are at home and in the era of social media, our young girls need to be reminded that women can still work hard and achieve their dreams without having a ‘rate card’ for their bodies” she said adding that “Let’s guide and counsel our young ones.”
