He only sat next to me at a function
Victoria Rubadiri has also come out to distance herself from Wilkins Fadhili. The Citizen TV anchor denies claims that the fraudster is her manager, she explains that she only sat next to him at a function.
“@wilkinsfadhili sits next to me at a function, has a photo snapped and all of a sudden becomes my brand manager. Let me be clear. I am NOT managed by him or any company affiliated with him,” Rubadiri tweeted.

Several celebs have also come out to warn Kenyans to be cautious when dealing with characters claiming to ‘know’ or working with celebs.
The number of cons running around these days beats reason & the media is quick to legitimize them. I know presenters who won’t bother to research guests or content, choosing instead to rely on ‘producers’ for every single thing they say and do.
