Tanzanian gospel artist Rose Muhando has addressed recent accusations of non-performance and deception by Kenyan artist Ali Mukhwana. Mukhwana alleged that Muhando had double-booked herself for events, pocketing payment without fulfilling her obligations.
According to Mukhwana, he and several other clergy members had booked Muhando for a crusade, paying a total of Kshs 250,000 for the performance and booking fee. However, they later discovered through posters circulated online that she had booked other shows on the same date.
Mukhwana confronted Muhando about the conflicting schedules. While initially unconvinced, he eventually accepted her explanation that the additional posters were fraudulent attempts to capitalize on her image.
Despite this, Mukhwana remains upset and wary, expressing concern for other potential victims. “I would like to warn other gospel artists and pastors not to pay her any money until they see her at their event,” he cautioned.
Rose Muhando has yet to issue a formal statement addressing these accusations directly. However, she has publicly denounced con artists exploiting her reputation and vowed to take legal action against them.
The situation has sparked controversy within the Kenyan and Tanzanian gospel communities, raising questions about artist professionalism and ethical conduct. While the truth remains unclear, the incident serves as a reminder of the importance of due diligence and transparency in managing artist bookings and payments.
