It has been rumoured that 28-year-old singer-songwriter Moneoa was recently arrested for drinking and driving and according to Daily Sun, a police officer said:

“She was driving with two other people in the car, and it seemed like they had been partying the previous night. When she was stopped at the road block, she tried using her celebrity influence to get her off the hook.”

However, the Sbhanxa singer laughed off the rumours and said everything is being blown out of proportion.

“It wasn’t necessarily an arrest, I was written up, yes. I went to the police station, did my paperwork and then they sent me home,” she told DRUM.

“They said I was driving under the influence but I feel like it was agenda, because the limit is 0.24 and I was on 0.26, so I feel like the police officer had an agenda. Also because I was the only person he arrested that day, so it was probably planned, someone must have been behind it, I don’t know.”

 What actually transpired that night according to her was,

“My boyfriend came to the police station with his lawyer because mine couldn’t make it on time; fortunately, I was then written up and sent home. So people are lying when they say I was locked up,” she laughs.

She isn’t letting the rumours get to her though, judging by her latest posts on social media:

Moneoa tells us that her album will be coming out mid-June and her second single ‘Kwaze Kwamnandi’ will be released in a week’s time and she says it will be quite a banger.

“I’m actually so glad I didn’t release it now ‘because people would be making memes about it saying ‘kwaze kwamnandi, Moneoa is drinking and driving/jailed’,” she jokes.

It seems nothing is getting this songbird’s spirits down!
