Kenyan rapper Juliani has been warned against posting pictures with former Machakos first lady Lillian Ng'ang'a.
According to activist Boniface Mwangi, Juliani received death threat messages and calls from an unknown person asking him to stop posting pictures with Lillian on social media.
The rapper has, however, recorded a statement at the Kileleshwa Police Station following the incident.
"My very good friend @JulianiKenya was threatened yesterday. Someone called him and texted using (phone number). He told him to stop posting pics posed with his friend @LillyanneNganga, and if he continues, they will kill him. He has recorded a statement at Kileleshwa Police Station," wrote Boniface Mwangi on Twitter.
Addressing the same on his Twitter yesterday, Juliani asked the people threatening him to stop the false narrative the he ‘stole’ someone to attract attention.
“How now can you "iba mtu"?! An intelligent adult with a sound mind. The call/text threat on my life today, NOT funny! "ulinyang'anyana" narrative is false, tired, juicy headlines tu. Kindly STOP! For the threats, usi aim face, na prefer niki smile kwa open casket. Baraka,” he wrote.
The threatening incident comes a day after Juliani had fans talking after posting a cryptic message on his social media platforms, that many took to be confirming his relationship with Lillian.
"Asante sana for all who've reached out the past couple of weeks. Mola awazidishie. No need for a statement about the obvious issue. I know you can think for yourselves. Draw your own conclusions. I believe in you," wrote Juliani.
Speculations have been high on social media that Juliani and Lillian are an item following her public split from Machakos governor Alfred Mutua.
Announcing the end of their 10-year relationship, Dr Mutua said they amicably decided to go their separate ways but would continue to be good friends.
"Lillian and I have been a blessing to each other. Two months ago, we decided to slowly disengage. We are on amicable terms and remain very close as friends. We will continue to talk, meet and share ideas constantly," wrote Mutua.
Lillian posted on her Instagram saying she would step down as Machakos First Lady after separating from the governor two months ago.
"Winds of change blew my way and two months ago, I decided to end the long-term relationship with Dr Alfred Mutua. We had a good run and I am forever grateful to God he brought us together. We remain friends," she wrote.
