Nicole Nyaba’s attempt to set the record straight about people using fake accounts to tarnish her name has ended in disaster
The video-vixen-turned-rapper took a break and urged her followers to be careful of online profiles claiming to be her.
“[I’m] extremely tired of people asking me about this fake Twitter/Facebook profiles. Please kindly report any Twitter or Facebook accounts. Furthermore, I’d appreciate it if you don’t bring any type of affairs pertaining [to] those accounts on my business profile,” she wrote.
She then took to her Instagram Live to discuss the issue with her 141 000 fans.
That’s when things took a turn for the worst.
The video, which was also shared on Twitter, raised a few eyebrows.
Many social media users claimed that Nicole looked tired and was incoherent at times.
The video left many people wondering if she was going through a rough patch in her life.

Many of Nicole’s fans came to her defence, saying that there was nothing wrong with her make-up free appearance.
“Nicole Nyaba still looks beautiful it’s just that on the video she didn’t have make-up on. Your girlfriends also look different without make-up it’s not that deep.”

Despite the hate, scores of people showed Nicole some love and sent her messages of support.
“Do you babe. Let the world off your shoulders. Take some time out to focus on yourself. Deal with it yourself now. Not in your 30s.
Wish you the best. Stay strong!” one woman wrote on Instagram.
Nicole thanked her followers for their support but also assured them that she is doing well
“… believe me when I say I’ve been in a good space for a while now and even as we speak. I had to address the Twitter issue to clear my name and I couldn’t find the words to address because it became extremely exhausting.”
