Following her brief success in the music industry, singer Vinka has gone on a quest to expose colleagues who formerly stood in her way as she strived for fame.
During an interview on Thursday, Vinka mentioned Irene Ntale and Allan Toniks as players who never believed in her effort.
Vinka stated that when she first started working as Irene Ntale’s manager, everything was OK until the former Swangz Avenue vocalist discovered that she, too, was going to the studio to record music. The Bailando actress said that pandemonium broke loose when she invited her to the filming of their ‘Stylo’ collaboration.
The manly-voiced singer claims she was taken aback by Irene Ntale’s demeanor during the video shoot for their collaboration in 2017, recalling her throwing a tantrum and departing the set before the finish.
“I didn’t replace her. People just got it wrong. In 2016, I stopped managing artists but Irene (Ntale) was still under Swangz. I had started recording my songs and she knew the songs, she listened to the songs because we used to spend time in the studio together and even worked on a song together,” she remembers.
“In 2017, I had to shoot the video for my very first song ‘Level’. Irene didn’t come for the video shoot yet she was my best friend. She didn’t come for the video shoot and for me, that was okay because she was busy. A time came when we had to shoot the video for our collaboration ‘Stylo’. My friend came with an attitude and I didn’t know why. She came with an attitude and didn’t even want to greet me. She even refused the outfits they brought her. I got emotional. While we were shooting, Irene threw a tantrum, got off the set, and left. We cried at the shoot. I hadn’t offended her at all. Till now I don’t know what happened between us,” she disclosed.
For Allan Toniks, Vinka says he called her a Vitz, when Swangz knifed Irene Ntale in favour of her. Vinka further revealed that after her rise to stardom, Toniks came running for a collabo which she instantly turned down.
“There is a musician who told my manager that they had switched from a Benz to a Vitz… Irene is a Benz and I’m a Vitz… surprisingly, a year later, that musician came asking for a collabo,” said
“When he asked for it, I said, he said I was a Vitz, I’m not going to be comfortable doing it,” said Vinka. “But I think it was emotions by then, so I didn’t do it. But I moved on from that. I matured.”
