@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. pic.twitter.com/bDFH0RPOWA

Betty Kyallo however chose to go a different route and forgave the lad despite using her name as one of his clientelle. She even asked others to show him mercy.
I communicated with him in various occasions on my disappointment that he continued to lie to people about working with me but he didn’t stop. That said I forgive him for using my name deceitfully, I wish him well and I hope he can just apologize to the people he took on a ride.

His fellow Blaze by Safaricom mentor, Olive Karmen revealed that Wilkins normally asks for photos or selfies with celebrities and then later claims to have worked with them.
“This is what this guy does. He calls you for a meeting (he is so persistent btw) He sells to you this amazing idea of building your brand. After the meeting he insists on taking a selfie with you then BOOM! He posts it and captions like y’all have been working together already,” she captioned.
Wilkins has since offered apology to Larry, even though Larry did not believe him as it was just another excuse given.
You know that’s a lie. Try again
