Lady Leshurr, a British rapper popularly known for her Speech series of freestyles, the fourth of which went viral in 2016, has accused a Kenyan promoter of trying to con her.
On Twitter, Leshurr — real names Melesha Katrina O’Garro — said that Trapking Chrome, one of the promoters behind her recent Westlands show attempted to extort her at least Ksh 500,000.
“[Do you] Remember when I went to Kenya for a show? The same guy who booked me is the same guy trying to extort me, and sell an unseen music video I shot there… He even tried to sell it back to me for $5, 000 (Ksh507, 000). Wow, Kenya[ns], you are [on an] elite level of finesse.” said the rapper on Twitter.
Chrome denied that he wanted to extort her but Leshurr insisted that he has been pestering her for months to send the money.
“I remember I was about to go on stage for the Nicki Minaj show in Manchester and I got an email saying: ‘Lady Leshurr’s new music video Pretty Likkle Ting leaked’. It killed my energy proper… That was all I could focus on. It has been months, and he won’t leave me alone,” said the London rapper.
The relationship between Lady Leshurr and other Kenyans hasn’t been rosy. The rapper ended up being trolled after she canceled her show following the Dusit D2 terror attack. Kenyans trolled the star saying that no one was to attend her show in the first place.
