After months of speculation, Akothee’s daughter Rue Baby has confirmed that she is not dating nor has she ever dated MCA Tricky.
MCA Tricky is a well known Churchill comedian-cum-radio host who has for long been rumoured to be dating Akothee’s daughter.
Speaking during an interview with Nana Owiti, Rue, however, denied these rumours, insisting that the two are good friends who only do skits together.
“Tricky and I are just good friends. we just do skits together. Plus there has never been a place where he called me his girlfriend so it’s never been official,” she said.
Asked on her current relationship status, Rue Baby chose not to divulge on the topic, giving the excuse that an answer might upset her ever-watching strict mother, Akothee.
“I can’t say, I will leave it hanging. Naeza uliwa because you never know madam boss might be watching,” she joked.
On being the face of Nivea, Rue says it was an amazing experience but revealed that she almost gave up along the way.
She, however, bounced back and used the downturn of events as an opportunity to build a thick skin which she now says internet trolls can’t penetrate.
“There was so much hate with people saying that I got the chance because of my mother, which is not true,” she began, “So bad were things that I told the Nivea management that I did not want to do it anymore. It took me a year to grow a tough skin as I was still new in the industry. Right now there is nothing new that people (online trolls) can tell me,” she added.
“I have been told I’m too skinny, that am too dark or that I have such a bad dental formula, hakuna kitu ingine wanaeza niambia,” she conclued.
Rue is a professional model who also runs her own fashion line which according to her, for now, focuses on bikinis as she wants to empower women to be confident in their own bodies.
