A young Akorino lady whose nude videos were leaked online last year has come out to clear the air.
In an interview with a local independent journalist, Susan Namu revealed that her nude videos were selling at KSh200 online.
Born, raised and educated in an Akorino family in Embu County, Susan alleged that her boyfriend whom she had never met, leaked her nudes on the internet.
“I thought he was joking when he threatened to leak the videos. I was very shocked when I saw the videos sent to my WhatsApp by strangers,” she said.
Susan had dated the Kenyan man, based in the U.S for close to four years, without any physical meetup.
Like any other romantic relationship, Susan and her boyfriend engaged in sexual pleasures by exchanging nudes and video calls.
After a misunderstanding, Namu says, her boyfriend threatened to post her nudes on social media, threats that he shrugged off.
“We had a small issue that I did not imagine could lead to this. When he threatened he would leak my nudes, I angrily told him he could do it,” said Susan. “I also had his nudes but I did not threaten to leak them.”
One day, she noticed many incoming messages on her WhatsApp messenger from unknown contacts along with the very nudes he was sending the boyfriend.
“I became numb and could not leave my house for a long time,” Susan narrated.
Being a gospel artist relying on community events to earn a living, Namu says the leaked videos cost tainted her image in the society and lost many clients as a result.
Apparently, her videos were sent to a “Nairobi Youth Link” Facebook group, from where her pseudo accounts sprung up to monetise the videos.
“There was one account on YouTube that had 3,000 followers, posing as me and even posting my photos. People told me the videos were sold at KSh200,” she revealed.
Due to trauma from the drama, Namu closed all her social media accounts and even denied being the person in the videos.
“At first I denied that the videos because I was very afraid.”
Later, an apologetic rogue boyfriend sought for her forgiveness. He was sorry about the mess.
“He reached out and asked for forgiveness saying he did not mean to leak them. I forgave him and told him we could not change the situation now.”
Susan says she still suffers stigmatisation from people in her community, while men flood her timelines seeking her “services” or videos.
“I get a lot of messages from men who want to meet me or others who just want my nudes but I always block them,” Susan revealed.
With a chuckle, Susan says she would get back with him even after what he did.
“If he comes back wanting to get back together, I would take him back because he was a good man. However, I would not send him nudes again,” she laughed.
She concluded by apologising for the leaked nudes and pleaded to Kenyans not to share the videos anymore.
