“I Will Never Defend Myself Here.”Mwalimu Rachel Says.
A fan accused Mwalimu Rachel of destroying Sailors Gang’s music career after refusing to share their social media accounts and youtube logins. The radio personality said that she would not defend herself on social media, instead focus on her activities.
Miracle Baby had accused Kenyans of watching while everything was taken away from them a few weeks ago. The band had previously blamed the journalist for the group’s fading music career, alleging she still has access to some of their most important projects. Rachel, on the other hand, maintains her innocence in the matter and even refuses to defend herself on social media.
When she welcomed people to share anything they knew about recentntly on an Instagram Stories session, one user accused her of ruining a music group she was managing. Rachel strongly said in her statement that she would never defend herself online and that she was at peace.
Again, I will never defend myself here. My actions will speak louder. Mungu wangu halali. This is why I’m at peace and people hate that, she wrote.
This comes weeks after Miracle Baby , Sailors’ leader, took to social media to caution people not to ask him dumb questions regarding the group’s demise. Because when everything was taken away from them, including their YouTube and social media accounts, money, and lucrative deals the whole world was watching.
Deals worth milions were turned down and you know very well who did that. But everyone was silent. I don’t see us helping each other with silly questions. That’s why I do what I do to put food on the table,he said.
The motive for the KSh 1.5 million demand to give out Sailors’ social media logins was revealed in October 2020 by Mwalimu Rachel .She refuted rumors that she had refused to hand over social media accounts, including the group’s YouTube page in a long post on her website.
Rachel had said that she served as the Gengetone group’s manager and even launched their official YouTube page in July of 2019. Later that year, she said that a record label approached the band, and Sailors secretly signed a deal with the label.
The radio host claimed that the record company offered KSh 100,000 for the YouTube channel, but she refused and demanded KSh 1.5 million, which she considered was a lower amount considering she had invested so much towards their career.
