Early January, Kenyan gospel singers HopeKid and DK Kwenye Beat were caught disturbing ‘ Rape’ scandal. A story spread like a wildfire on social media of a 20- year lady who claimed that the two raped her infecting her with an STD.

That is where we decided on a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) to put an end to all of this.” Hope Kid Revealed
