Part of Tanasha’s long statement on Instagram read;

”If you for me, be for me. If you ain’t stay the F*** away from me!!!! I mean it!!! & If you’re really for me, from the bottom of my heart, I love you all so much!!!! ya’l keep me going! ❤️ f** the gossip, F** the constant lies & made up stories, F** the clout chasing, F*** the negativity,”. If you really for me 100% STREAM MY MUSIC! & Not just youtube!

We’ve got to change this culture of if you’re big on youtube you’re a big East African artist! Go run up those spotify, apple music, deezer, boomplay, audiomack etc numbers too!! How do we enter TOP 100 KENYA APPLE MUSIC & Top 10 are international songs? Alot of the East African songs we see that have crazy numbers on youtube aren’t even on this list! SUPPORT YOUR OWN!!! You’l never see Nigeria or South Africa top 100 filled with international artists. They support their own. TUSUPPORTIANE! How is this industry gonna grow if we don’t???”

Tanasha continued to question why bloggers never bother to verify any allegations labelled against her before verification; advising them to channel their energy towards supporting local talents and not gossip.

”& Dear Kenyan bloggers/media: What happened to journalism??? The same energy ya’l have to promote negative controversial stories, without finding out if what you’re putting out there is based on FACTS, Find out the other side to every story before just running with anything. I’ve seen this happen too many times.

Too much gossip, less support. These days people are capable of going to extreme extents & saying just about anything for traction. Use the same energy to promote your local talents if we ever wanna see this entertainment/music industry grow. It is also upon us to make Good music.I know enough artists making good music out here and don’t get the traction they deserve. LET’S SPREAD MORE LOVE & LESS HATE!!! KENYA LET US LEARN TO SUPPORT OUR OWN!!! I KNOW WE CAN DO THIS!!! KENYA TO THE WORLD!!”
