Police at the Moi International Airport in Mombasa wants to question American R&B artist, Chris Brown, after a Kenyan fan reported assault and destruction of property.
According to sources within the airport security, Brenda Chepkoech Sugut made reports at the station under OB number 17/8/10/2016. The case has been assigned to high-ranking CID officers who hope to have the artist record a statement.
Reports emerged that Chris Brown destroyed the phone of a Kenyan fan who loves to take selfies with the influential. While many on social media are angered by the acts of the R&B sensation, a good number of those who hoped to attend the Mombasa event demanded that Chris Brown go ahead with the event despite the allegations.
Chris Brown was convicted of assaulting Rihanna and banned from carrying a weapon in California. He was also arrested and questioned in August over allegations that he assaulted a female in his Los Angeles mansion. The arrest in LA happened after 11-hour standoff following reports that he assaulted former Miss California Regional 2016 Baylee Curran.
Chris Brown performed in Mombasa last night in a $1 million show, earning himself more than Ksh 1million ($10,000) per minute in his 90 minute appearance.
Questions have been asked on the source of the money used to fund the event as key indicators are that more than Ksh 200 million was spent on the logistics around the event.
Payments to artists were reported as follows;
- Chris Brown – Ksh 90 million
- WhizKid – Ksh 4million
- Ali Kiba – Ksh 2 million
- Vanessa Mdee – Ksh 2 million
- Nazizi – Ksh 800,000
Artists like P-Unit refused to perform after disagreeing with the event organisers on their fees. The organisers wanted to pay them a paltry Ksh 400,000, a figure which they called “insulting.”
Chris Brown loved the money he was paid that he couldn’t even perform. He was just lip syncing.
Questions have also emerged on the character and background of the Wale Wasee team as they figure behind the event, Thandi Ojeer is reported to be a known extortionist. She is reported to be a former girlfriend of French football star Claude Makelele. Thandi was booted by the star over allegations of infedility and violence.
Thandi is also the woman who followed President Uhuru to Abu Dhabi and decided to take a selfie with the President.
