Rayvanny Relationship Troubles

Tanzanian singer Rayvanny and his baby mama Fahima are not faking relationship problems to push his music.

The WCB singer has been linked to video vixen Nana, who features in his new song I Love You.

“I don’t know anything to do with stunts. I’m living my life. When I release the music, my fans receive it well,” he said on Tuesday.

“Since I started, I don’t do anything like a publicity stunt. I’m not here for the stunts. Whatever you saw, that’s how it is.”

The Kwetu hitmaker praised Nana for working with him, despite the tough circumstances. “Nana and I are not in a relationship. She is in a relationship that she respects so much,” Rayvanny told Wasafi Media.

“I thank her for shooting the video with me. The video is nice because it is real and romantic. I wanted it to be the way it is.”

Speaking about the issue last week, Nana said she was not a homewrecker and that she is in a serious relationship

“I heard that Fahima had shared a post about me. I was just doing my work and nothing else. I have had a headache since that issue occurred,” she said.

“We took many photos and that was part of my job. Rayvanny and I are just friends, there is no romantic relationship.

“I am in a public relationship with my boyfriend so I cannot do stupid things because we’ve been together for three to four years now.”

Rayvanny has a son with fashionista Fahima. In a recent post shared by the singer, Fahima had sent him a text telling him to consider them dead to him.

He says his time to leave the record is not yet here, as he still needs them. “I have my manager, bodyguard, producers who I work with, although I need Wasafi in a big way because they have played a big role in my life for three years now,” he said.

Rayvanny has recorded at least six songs with Diamond, all hits. “I can’t start saying I want to do my things because I know I can’t manage without them. “I need their help and when my time to leave comes, the management will tell me, not me to follow them and tell them that I want to do my things alone,” he said.

He says his focus is to do the best because he believes all Wasafi members need each other.

I Love You Lyrics – Rayvanny

Ilikuwa Safari ndefu
Yenye mateso
Machozi, mizigo vikwazo
Ila yote umenituuwa

Naomba Penzi letu
Lisife Kesho
Ukanipa Pressure mawazooo
Chonde mama utaniuua

Na vile hujui Kununa
Fundi wa Kudeka
Hata sijakutekenya unacheka
Ooh, tambua

Ushaniteka
Hata bila chakula
Nanenepa
My love

Salama nikiwa nawe
Hata kama nina shida Nasahau
Sura kama malaika
Na wala hauringi kwa dharau

Lawama acha nipewe
Nitoke duniani angalau
Kuliko  ukanyanyasika
Hilo mpenzi usahau

Mio oh oh,,aaaaaeee
Mi amor,,, aaaaaeee
My love,,,aaaaaeee
Te amo,,,aaaaeeee

I love you
I love you
My baby i love

I love you , me nakupenda sana
I love you, usi niache mama
I love you, mi ooh

Sura ya Mama
Umbo lawama
Una ya biya miguu

Unanichanganya
Ukiinama
Naangaliaa Tatoo

Nipakulie chakula
Mama sikoomi
Asubuhi, mchana
Mpaka jioni

Mchezo unaijua
Mama msomiii
Pini Kitovu kifua
Na sikioni

Salama nikiwa nawe
Hata kama nina shida Nasahau
Sura kama malaika
Na wala hauringi kwa dharau

Lawama acha nipewe
Nitoke duniani angalau
Kuliko  ukanyanyasika
Hilo mpenzi usahau

Mio oh oh,,aaaaaeee
Mi amor,,, aaaaaeee
My love,,,aaaaaeee
Te amo,,,aaaaeeee

I love you

Baby i love you
