then one evening as others left, she says the producer asked her to stay behind. She did and they went to the studio booth, Yuny having no idea he was setting up a trap. He made sexual advances at her, expressing his adoration for her. When she would hear none of it, he forcefully pulled her to himself and demanded sex from her. It was pointless to scream; the booth is sound-proofed. “He kept coming on to me even when I told him there was no way I could sleep with him. When I tried to run away, I found out he had locked the main door. He took me to a table and attempted to remove my clothes. The good thing is I was in jeans and it was difficult to remove it. I bit him and fought myself from him,” narrates the self-confessed shy girl. After thirty minutes, Yuny says the man grew tired and unlocked the door and she ran away. She feared to press charges because she says she did not have proof the incident happened. And it is an ordeal that only a few within the industry know about.
I do not want to be seen as if I am seeking attention. I am only saying this because I want you to see the frustrating circumstances female artistes go through. This incident made me decide to quit music because it was too much for me. I also would like to encourage female artistes that you do not have to give in to the demands,” she says. Yuny, her real name Eunice Kamau, embarked on other hustles until she heard Rapdamu was opening a studio, Pacho Entertainment, and he was signing artistes. The two had met sometime back and he had noticed her passion for music. A call and Rapdamu took her under his wings. “It is a good thing that I am now a signed artiste. Since the industry is tough already for female artistes, I do not have to deal with people asking for sexual favours. I already have my team that takes care of everything and markets the songs for me. I only come to the studio to record songs and perform,” she says. Yuny released Gari Gari two weeks ago, a song that praises love over money in relationships. She takes music as her first profession and studies music production at Zetech University while going for dance lessons at Sarakasi Dome to prepare herself as a performer. Music has taken a lot of her time to the point where she finally decided to put dating on hold for a while. “Music is what I have always wanted to do and I was to come back to it at some point. It is a priority. Everything happens, happens for a reason. I have learnt there are crazy people out here and I have to deal with a lot of them. The break was good for me. I can handle anything right now,” she assert
