Tanzanian Musician say Kenyan ladies love money in relationships

Tanzanian musician and rapper Nay wa Mitego recently made bold statements, asserting that Kenyan women prioritize money over love. According to him, by the second date, they are already seeking financial assistance for various expenses, such as gas for the stove. Nay wa Mitego observed that even highly educated women in Kenya tend to prioritize their physical appearance over their intelligence when it comes to earning a livelihood. These comments shed light on his perception of the priorities of Kenyan women, indicating a dominance of financial matters in their interactions, with early requests for money emerging in relationships.

Nay wa Mitego’s observations hinted at a perceived materialistic tendency among the Kenyan women he encountered. Furthermore, he highlighted a paradox where well-educated women seemed to rely on their physical appearance for financial gain. These statements prompted questions about the interplay of financial independence, education, and gender dynamics within Kenyan society.

The artist’s latest song, “Wapi huko,” has stirred speculation among Kenyans about its target country. The track addresses a nation grappling with issues such as poor leadership, corruption, hunger, and a lack of employment opportunities for its youth. Nay wa Mitego narrates how the country may appear prosperous to the world, but its citizens suffer due to negligent leaders, youth facing poverty, and women prioritizing money over love.

In the song, the rapper criticizes young men for pursuing relationships with older women, boasting in English about their country’s superiority while facing challenges like the absence of electricity back home. Nay wa Mitego mentions the rise of single mothers in the unnamed country, emphasizing their inclination towards financial interests over genuine love. The song has sparked debates on Twitter, with Kenyans divided on whether Nay wa Mitego is targeting Kenya or addressing issues within his own country.

Opinions vary among Kenyans, with some interpreting the song as a critique of Tanzanian leadership, while others believe it mocks Kenya. The ongoing debate underscores the complexity of the relationship between the two neighboring countries. Nay wa Mitego’s portrayal of societal challenges, such as high living costs, unemployment, and limited access to basic needs, resonates with experiences familiar to many Kenyans. Criticism has also been directed at President Ruto for imposing numerous taxes, contributing to the high cost of living in Kenya.
