When Naava Grey wanted to ‘strangle’ Alex Muhangi

When Naava Grey was signed under Fenon Entertainment, Alex Muhangi was working in production at Fenon Records.

While Nteredde was still under production, someone from Capital FM convinced Alex Muhangi to give them the song. The song was played on air before being mastered.

When Steve Jean asked how it happened, according to Naava Grey, the people at Capital FM lied to him that it was her who gave it to them. Muhangi didn’t come out to say anything.

"So these Capital guys tell Steve that I did it, and yet they are the actual guys that came to studio and coerced Alex Muhangi to give them the song,” said Grey in an interview. “So Alex Muhangi kept quiet and even up to now, I wanna strangle him. I've never told him that because I was told this in 2012 when I had already separated with Steve Jean because of that... this song was released by Alex Muhangi and some capital FM guys..."

When that incident happened, Michael Fingers, who produced the song, rushed to master it so it could be officially released.

The original name was Gwe Nange and they changed it to Nteredde. But the incident built a rift between Steve Jean and Naava Grey and they broke ties.

Grey would learn that Alex Muhangi was involved some time after leaving Fenon.

But it seems Naavva Grey and Muhangi are now friends, as she has been among performers at Comedy Store. The interview in which Grey talked about this incident was done in 2017.
