Some of the fans were responding after she made a post in the weekend celebrating after the hit single with Mejja hit five million views on YouTube.

However, a section of curious fan questioned whether Azziad Nasenya had been compensated for bringing the song popularity after her dance video went viral.


”I hope Azziad received some sort of payment for her efforts,” wrote a user by the name Raphmckers.

In her response, Femi One clarified that just like thousands other people Azziad only took part in the challenge and was fortunate that it went viral, which to her does not warrant financial compensation.

A faction of the social media users believe that the song could not have been a chart-topper if not for Azziad’s contribution with a viral TikTok choreography.

On Tuesday, the name Azziad was trending and it divided the opinion of Kenyans. Some of them claimed that she deserved some payment for marketing the song, even claimed that most Kenyans think she is the original singer of the ”utawezana” hit.

Others however said that its the song hthat has marketed Azziad, and that were it not for the song, no one would even know her name.
