But my heart is humbled by the fact they thought of Nadia Mukami. Mimi Nadia wa Mwihoko. That means the brand is growing! I really thank God and I’m grateful for this favor,” read part of her post.

Nadia has been having her ups and downs this year being attacked by social media users on several occasions.

She was first called out by her followers who stated that she was looking for publicity when she declared her undying love for American rapper and businessman J Cole. Nadia had gone on to even write a love letter to the rapper dedicated her love for her.

In an interview with NTV’s The Trend show host Amina Abdi she claimed that she dated singer Arrow Boy for almost a year but things did not work out and they went separate ways.

However, weeks later, Arrow Boy stated that the only Nadia he knew was the one that featured him on her hit song dubbed Radio Love. Despite not confirming if the two ever dated, he urged the songbird to concentrate on her music and not sideshows.

Recently, a woman on Facebook came up with allegations that Nadia conned her after she gave her a new gig. She went on to claim that the singer was a lesbian and was sleeping with her female manager.

This prompted the singer to take a break from social media and involved her management which directed the lady to pull down the post and offer a public apology to its client.

The singer is currently riding high on the song dubbed Nikune which Willy Paul featured her.
