Musician Nicah The Queen has defended Willy Paul against attempted rape allegations levelled against him by rapper Diana Marua.
In a video on her social media pages, Nicah recalled the said day that musician reportedly sexually assaulted Diana, noting that she seemed comfortable around Willy when she bumped into them.
Nicah who was then married to Dr Ofweneke said she was taking an evening stroll alongside her husband when they bumped into Willy who was in the company of Diana.
“What caught my attention is Willy Paul was not alone, he was in the company of a woman, and the woman was dressed in white she seated on the co-driver’s seat… Later on when Diana became famous I realised that, ‘ooh, the same lady that was on Willy Paul’s car is Diana’,” Nicah said.
Nicah went ahead to dismiss Diana’s claims that Willy might have attempted to rape her, noting that her narration on the incident is contrary to what she saw.
“From what I saw with my naked eyes, the lady was not held against her wishes, the driver’s car was open and even when the song was playing, the drivers door was open. I was there, the watchmen were at the gate,” she added.
In YouTube video dated Thursday, December 9, the rapper accused Willy of attempting to rape her years back when he was pursuing her.
Diana recalled his first encounter with Willy and how much he was consistent with getting into a relationship with her.
“A few years ago, this boy called Willy Paul had been pursuing me for a while, it was be coming too much and that time I remember I was living somewhere around Syokimau and then there’s this day that I was at the movie shop and I see Willy Paul, so he comes in and he’s being all touchy,” said Diana.
The rapper said Willy then suggested that they go to her house so that they could talk to which she denied, but Willy said they could also talk from his car.
“I’m there minding my own business and he tells me, ‘let’s go to your house we talk’. So I tell him I would not allow him in because I don’t know him, he was arrogant and he told me we get into the car so that we talk from there,” said Diana before breaking down.
“I accepted and got into the car to hear what he had to say. I get into the car, the guy locks the car and drives off… It has taken me so long to even share this story with my husband. It took me three years before I opened up to Bahati about what I went through with his guy.”
They finally arrived at the final destination where Willy asked Diana to accompany him upstairs to his house and when she refused, Willy went ahead to attempt raping her.
“So we get to some apartments after Gateway mall and then he tells me we go upstairs to his house but I told him I will not go and asked him to return me where he found me… He got angry, came on top of me and started pulling my skirt up, he tore my skirt and my top… I started screaming and this guy was choking me
“Eventually in the process when I was screaming I think he panicked and he let me go and I got the chance to open the door and ran. My top was torn, my skirt was torn all the way up and I was running like a mad woman and that’s when I spotted a motorbike and went back home,” she added.
