Melesha Katrina O’Garro known professionally as Lady Leshurr has called out a Kenyan promoter identified as rapper Trap King Chrome on Twitter for trying to extort money from her.
In the Twitter thread, Lady Leshurr says that the same guy that brought her to Kenya for the Backyard Bass show in February 2019 at the Muze club in Westlands, Nairobi has been trying to sell her an unseen music video for her song ‘Pretty Likkle Ting’ which she shot during her stay in the country.
She adds that he must have gained access to the video thanks to his friendship with a music director who was involved during the shoot.
Remember when I went to Kenya for a show? The same guy who booked me is the same guy trying to extort me & sell an unseen music video I shot there 💀 he even tried to sell it back to me for 5K 😂😂🤦🏾♀️ wow Kenya ur elite level of finesse

Leshurr says Bradley tried selling her the video for £5,000 (KES 640,000) but she ignored him. He has since been trying to leak the music video. She recounted when she performed alongside Grammy Award-winning rapper Nicki Minaj in Manchester in March saying that before she got on stage she got an email about the yet to be released music video leaking, something that killed her energy.
The tweets also allege that the underground rapper wants to bring two more Grime artists, Stormzy and J. Hus to Kenya for shows.
Bradley Juma Obomi alias Trap King Chrome is yet to respond to these allegations. He is a controversial upcoming rapper whose appearance on Ebru TV’s Perfect Match show went viral. Some tabloids also allege to him being deported from the U.K and pushing his girlfriend off the sixth floor of a building.
The 30-year-old artist has fans in the 254 as other parts of the globe emanating from her world famous ‘Queen Speech’ series that hit in 2015. Other songs like ‘OMW’, ‘Black Panther’ and ‘Black Madonna’ have been on heavy rotation across many platforms.
