Elodie Zone takes a break from social media after drama with boy band NSG

By Winnie Mabel December 20th, 2022 2 min read

Kenyan influencer Elodie Zone has announced that she is taking a break from social media, just days after she was involved in a drama with British boy band NSG.

Without elaborating, or making any reference to the British group, the influencer said she is taking a new adventure.

“Will be changing my number and leaving social media for a few months. Excited to go on a new adventure that I haven’t spoken to anyone about. Y’all, it’s been hella lit vibes on vibes since I was 16-years-old and it’s only going to get better as I continue to practice manifestation and the universal arts,” Elodi Zone posted on Instagram.

“Remember to meditate daily, question those in positions of power, discover your true self and shine so bright that people have to notice who you are. No pain is permanent, no partner is necessary, and no trauma can be left unhealed. Listen more than you speak and take note that every answer to a question must be found from within. Don’t ever forget the power that you carry. No one can take it away,” she wrote.

Elodie Zone’s post came after she claimed that NSG had harassed and attacked a female cashier at a local Chicken Inn fast food outlet for not serving them as fast as they needed to be served.

She accompanied her post with a video that captured some of the NSG members appearing to be violent in the fast food joint. She termed their behaviour as vulgar in attacking the waitress and Kenyans in general.

The post went viral as Kenyans online called for a boycott the group’s upcoming concert, wondering how foreigners come to the country and behave as they so wished.

In their defence, NSG claimed Elodie Zone had been clout chasing using their name during the incident that happened on December 16, only for the influencer to unleash more evidence.

Later, one band member recorded a video and posted it online, claiming the group loved Kenya and Kenyans and there was no way they would have behaved violently despite video evidence.

The band member explained that they had entered the joint to ask for serviettes because someone in their group was sick and they needed immediate assistance. He further claimed that the cashier ignored him despite Elodie Zone saying the cashier told him to wait a minute for her to finish serving the person in front of him.

According to Elodie Zone, it is at this point that the band member turned violent and began cursing Chicken Inn staff and patrons. He proceeded to call his band mates to help him ‘attack’ the establishment.
