Harambee Stars of Kenya captain Victor Wanyama on Tuesday, September 29, issued a strongly-worded statement in the wake of explosive allegations by socialite Shakila.
Shakila, a young upcoming socialite, was clearly in the mood to trend as she went on Instagram Live with popular blogger Xtian Dela to make some mind-boggling claims, while dragging some renown celebrities names in the process.
The socialite, who claims she is 19 years, bragged about sleeping with some high profile names in the Instagram Live and sensationally mentioned the likes of the former Tottenham midfielder Wanyama and rapper Khaligraph Jones.
Pressed on how much she was paid, Shakila boldly claimed that Wanyama who now plays in the MLS with Montreal Impact gave her about N2.5million.
It is worth noting the allegations were so explosive it was hard to take the socialite seriously as many netizens pointed out, but this did not stop the Wanyama from taking action.
Being a public figure, the Harambee Stars midfielder is wary of the fact that his image could potentially take a hit from the allegations and he took to respond on Tuesday.
In a statement accessed by TUKO.co.ke, Wanyama refuted Shakila’s claims as he vowed to take legal action on the matter.
“My attention has been drawn to a video circulating online containing false, fabricated and insulting allegations aimed at scandalizing my good name and reputation,” the statement started.
"I wish to distance myself completely from the contents of this defamatory video. The allegations made therein are a total fabrication and a figment of the maker’s imagination at best,”
Wanyama goes on to refute claims of ever meeting the likes of Shakila or Xtian Dela as he observed the video, which has since gone viral, was aimed at “boosting online audience”.
“I have worked long and hard to build my character and standing in the society. Such malicious, scandalizing and false assertions about my name and character are unacceptable to me. I have instructed my legal team to pursue all legal remedies available to me and to which I have unreserved rights to seek,” the statement went on.
Rapper Khaligraph Jones, who is already dealing with another scandal involving his alleged baby mamma Cashy, also compelled Shakila into an apology where the 19-year old admitted to fabricating the entire story.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Adil Rami’s team-mate Aleksandr Kokorin has revealed that the French defender once dated the famous model Pamela Anderson and that the pair used to make love 12 times a night.
It was gathered that the 34-year-old dated the model for about two years before he split with the Baywatch beauty in 2019.
