Sanaipei Tande takes stand against rumour-mongers amid baseless gossip

Media personality Sanaipei Tande has recently been at the center of online chatter, with rumors swirling that she’s expecting a child and trying to conceal it.

However, in a recent interview on Lynn Ngugi’s YouTube channel, the musician put these rumors to rest once and for all.

Addressing the speculation head-on, Tande spoke candidly about the challenges she’s faced dealing with rumors throughout her career in the entertainment industry. “When I was 19 and just starting out, I naively believed everything was straightforward,” she revealed. “But soon I learned that people are adept at creating their own narratives.”

Reflecting on the impact of these rumors, Tande expressed how she has evolved over the years. “I used to let these rumors get to me when I was younger and more impressionable,” she admitted. “But as I’ve grown, I’ve come to understand that the world isn’t just black and white. There are shades of grey, and some people will do anything to push a story.”

Despite the persistent gossip, Tande emphasized that she no longer allows these rumors to affect her. “Rumors used to bother me, but not anymore,” she asserted. “People can say whatever they want. Just last week, Twitter decided I was pregnant. It’s absurd! But I’ve learned to brush it off.”

Refusing to engage with cyberbullies, Tande made it clear that she is steadfast in protecting her privacy. “After 20 years in the industry, it’s baffling that some people still haven’t learned that I won’t share my personal life,” she stated. “So when they come at me with these questions, it’s like talking to a brick wall. I won’t dignify it with a response.”

Tande added, “As long as I know the truth in my heart, I won’t let these rumors bother me. I’ll just keep moving forward.”
