KAMPALA – Local rapper Derrick Katongole alias Victor Kamenyo has come out to deny ever failing to pay rent and running out of the house.
This follows news where the ‘Silina Malala’ hit maker went missing from his Kawaala based rental after reports emerged revealing how he had gone into hiding from his landlady for defaulting seven months’ rent arrears worth Shs 3.5millions and water bills amounting to Shs 150,000.
According to his landlady, Victor Kamenyo was supposed to be paying Shs 350,000 monthly but starting January this year, he stopped paying and asked for some time as he pleaded that he be excused for a certain period of time.
“I first took it easy when he requested to be pardoned on since we had entered the COVID-19 lockdown, so I got lenient to him. He kept on telling me that he would pay sometime later until a certain period reached and we agreed he pays half and then he leaves the house,” she narrates
Kamenyo however says all these are false allegations fronted by mafias to kill his aspirations of standing for the post of Lord Councilor LCV Rubaga division.
“This is an exaggerated story, if you are demanding me why go to the media. I think her mission was to deter my would be voters from voting for me, putting an end to my political career and killing my name. She did not only shame me but also my parents, fans and people who look at me as role models,” he said
Kamenyo added that everyone knows that in this period everyone is poor and they are just trying to make ends meet since most people have spent months without working.
Victor Kamenyo’s departure from his Landlady’s rentals did not actually make her feel bitter but got furious by the fact that the rapper left his house looking like a ‘pigsty’ yet he kept on pestering her to improve on a number of things in the house to look fancy.
