Calls are growing louder for Kenya Film and Classification Board (KFCB) boss Ezekiel Mutua to ban Kenya’s popular reality TV show Nairobi Diaries after a recent ugly expose by its former socialites on Thursday September 17 uncovered fresh controversy.
The show’s former actress Black Cinderella featured Chacha and Mwarnicky recently dramatically left the reality show after payment arrears and consistent torment from their ‘evil spirited’ producer Janet Mwaluda.
The three decided to spill the beans on what had been going on behind the scenes in a show they thought would see them get productive and put their talent to work only to be shocked by the kind of dirty work that went on behind the curtains.
According to the girls, Janet was so corrupt to the point that she would steal money from their handbags during shoots, pay them peanuts and even sleep with the socialites’ husbands.
“I am very hurt by your actions Janet. I hate you so much! Why are you misusing innocent children? You bring them to your show, drive them crazy, make them look like cheap wh*res, simply because you want money and for your show to fly high. We can’t even pay rent,” angrily bashed Chacha.
Janet allegedly went to the extent of drawing enmity between cast members, spreading all sorts of lies among them and threatening their lives. Chacha then declared she was taking this matter before the Court of Law to seek justice.
“You are so old yet so cursed. You are barren and very stupid outside there, spoiling young innocent girls but it shall never be well with you! Pendo came in as a petty thief and left as a cocaine addict. Nobody has left that show better, myself I left the show psychologically tortured,” jumped in Black Cinderella.
Mwarnicky accused the female producer for sexually harassing her and making advances on her, promising her more than her man could give her.
“You almost raped me and you had not paid me!” she raged on.
The actresses warned young Kenyans looking for business in the show that it was rotten and not worthy the sweat or blood.
“Ezekiel Mutua please shut down this Nairobi Diaries show! There is nothing going on there,” screamed Mwarnicky
“You are such an animal! You will kill people very soon on that show because of your evil lies. You are selling us to you brothers and rich sponsors as prostitutes. Kenyans please listen, this show is scripted and malicious.” closed in Chacha.
Black Cinderella further accused Janet of killing her dad, sleeping with young boys, her lawyers, production team and even the bouncers.
The show returned for its 10th season on April 21 this year after speculation that the show would go under following an underwhelming ninth season.
The cast includes rapper Colonel Mustafa, and others such as singer Sunny Rwanda, Chacha, Willy Collins Mbogo, King Pablo, Wayinke, Black Cinderella, and Susan Mwaniki.
