Vanessa Mdee addresses intimate photo with Trey Songz – ‘We are JUST Friends’


Tanzanian singer, Vanessa Mdee, is addressing speculations about her relationship with American singer, Trey Songz.

Trey Songz recently visited Kenya for some Coke studio sessions with select African musicians including Nigeria’s Yemi Alade, Ghanaian rapper Stonebwoy and Tanzanian singer, Vanessa Mdee.

During his visit, Trey was spotted hanging out and getting super cozy with Miss Mdee on several occasions , causing rumours to spread that the two were hooking up.

Trey Songz further ignited the rumours when he shared a photo of himself and Vanessa cuddling on his Snapchat with the caption, “The best girls all reside in Africa and that’s real.”

However, Vanessa is not down with the dating rumours.

In an interview with Bongo 5 TV, the petite Niroge singer stated that she and Songz were nothing more than friends. “The pictures going around are misinterpreted, I worked for MTV and had met Trey before. We were cool then and we are cool now.”

She then added, “Being a female artiste in Africa, people are always waiting for any opportunity to tarnish one’s image and disregard years of hardwork and success.”

Vanessa also went on to clarify that she was still happily in a relationship with her boyfriend and Tanzanian singer, Juma Jux.
