vanessaTeen Republik presenter Tracy Wanjiku isn’t the only victim of malicious rumors linking her to American singer Trey Songz.

Tanzania’s Vanessa Mdee is also rumored to have had a raunchy affair with Trey Songz during his short visit to the country for this year’s Coke Studio Africa.

The speculations were sparked after Trey Songz seemed to spend more time with the ‘Niroge’ singer. Photos and snapchat videos fuelled the rumors, with sections of social media and tabloids alleging that Vanessa cheated on her boyfriend, Jux, with the American heart-throb.

But according to Vanessa, her and Trey Songz had met before and remain cool.

“The video and pictures going around are misinterpreted, I worked for MTV and had met Trey before, we were cool then and are cool now,” Vanessa told Bongo5.

“I respect him, Juma and all our fans.”

She added: “Being a female artiste in Africa, people are always waiting for any opportunity to tarnish ones image, and disregard years of hardwork and success.

“Watch this space. I am about to give them more. Kazi tu.”
