DK Kwenye Beat has finally spoken out after a long hiatus from public life.
The gospel singer who is known for hit tracks was engulfed in a sex scandal after a young woman shared her story where she had a threesome with the ‘Asusu’ singer and fellow entertainer Hope Kid in March 2019. The young woman shared the intimate and gory details and went on to reveal that she ended up getting a sexually transmitted infection from the sexual encounter.
The prominent artist was disgraced for his actions and as public pressure continued to mount, DK had no choice but to make a public apology as earlier reported by The Sauce. And now according to a recent interview on Milele FM, the apology DK believes that his apology did not mean that the young woman in question is without blame.
In the interview he said, “Nilisema pole kwa sababu watu wengi wananiangalia kwenye mifano tofauti. Kunawatu wananiangalia, like their role model and nimewa-inspire kwa njia tofauti…Singekaa tu chini niseme ‘itaisha tu’… Niliaddress na mtumishi wa Mungu mwenzangu Size 8.” In his explanation he goes on to point his strategy for seeking public redress was not well received as he did not apologize to the young woman, but instead choose to focus on apologizing for his actions. DK points out, “Sasa niliposema, watu walikuwa sana na shida ya mbona huyu jamaa hajapoligisia huyu msichana.” Justifying his apology, DK Kwenye Beat said ” I did not rape anybody.”
Kwenye Beat also goes on to refute the young woman’s claims that she may have gotten a sexually transmitted infection from him. D.K speaks out saying, “Mimi, Hope Kid sisi tulipimwa na ninauhakika tulipimwa…Ila I cannot change everyone’s mindsets about what they know…But the scandal cannot define me.” Rationalizing why he did not reveal his test results he said, “During that time I had a lot of voices. Others would suggest go public about it. Put your results on Instagram, social media… but what is the benefit at the end of it all? Because it is like I am fighting for myself alot.And with that, inaleta issues zaidi. It creates a new thing everyday.”
When asked if he slept with the young woman, DK Kwenye Beat categorically answers “Mimi sikulala na binti yeyote wa Nakuru.” Speaking about how the scandal came about, Beat clarifies that the scandal was a result of schemes by bloggers and gospel musicians to malign and pull down his name. He goes on to point out the scandal was created by artists possessed by demons, and those are jealous of his success.
Though some doubt whether his claims are truthful, some has questioned why he continues to offer story lines that contradict each other. Based on the interview, it is clear that if there was a plot to bring down DK he is not eager to forgive any parties that were involved in the sex scandal. He may or may not be giving the whole truth, but he seems determined to move forward.
DK Kwenye beat went to release an apology track featuring EMB records own Bahati. The track dubbed “Sorry.” In May 2019, DK released “We Ndio Manufaa” recommitting himself to his craft and his ministry.
