Kenyan footballer Victor Wanyama has issued a strongly-worded statement after a Kenyan woman went on live video, claiming she had se-xual relations with the international soccer star.
Taking to Twitter, Wanyama dismissed the video as salacious and an attempt to scandalize his good name and reputation.

He said the racy claims made by Shakilla – a Kenyan socialite – were not only a figment of her own imagination but a total fabrication.
The decorated footballer called out social media rubble-rouser Xtian Dela, accusing him of publishing the disparaging content based on “accusatory statements.”
Further, Wanyama noted that the controversial video was aimed at chasing clout for the blogger and socialite.
“I’m prepared to go to great lengths to protect my good name and character, consequently and with the blessing of my management team, I have instructed my legal team to pursue all legal remedies available to me and to which I have the unreserved right to seek,” the statement said.
The statement comes against a backdrop of claims by Shakilla that she had s.e.x with over 15 Kenyan celebrities.
In the video which first appeared on Arthur Mandela (Xtian Dela’s) Instagram account, the woman name drops, among others, Khalighraph Jones, Willy Paul, Otile Brown and Victor Wanyama.
