Megan Thee Stallion case: Yes, the woman with a 'Kenyan accent' behind Tory Lanez's father is Kenyan

Kenyans on Twitter have been on a quest to uncover a woman they insist has 'a very Kenyan accent' in a video that has gone viral after singer Tory Lanez was found guilty in the shooting of female rapper Megan Thee Stallion.

Shortly after a Los Angeles jury on Friday found Tory Lanez guilty of three charges related to the July 2020 shooting, the video showing Lanez's father condemning the verdict surfaced online but something else has seemed to have raised many Kenyans' eyebrows.

In the video, Lanez's father Sonstar Peterson, is seen shouting "It's not over, God does not lose" while accompanied by a cluster of presumably friends and family who nodded in agreement with his spirited remarks.

Amid his sentiments, however, a woman is heard with a not-so-American accent trying to compliment Mr Peterson in harmony.

The accent was familiar, so familiar that Kenyans could doubtlessly relate with it since it mirrors the dictions of the Kenyan cadence.

With the brazen articulate intonation that Kenyans mesh into their English, the woman would interject with "It's just b-e-g-a-n" and "This is not the f-i-r-s-t t-i-m-e".

"Th-e-y met on S-a-t-u-r-d-a-y before, they met on S-a-t-u-r-d-a-y, Saturday n-i-g-h-t," she added at a different interject.

This, therefore, got many asking if she is really Kenyan and how she got herself pasting footprints along the same pavements the family of a famous Canadian RnB artist is striding on.

Citizen Digital has established that the lady is actually Kenyan and is Tory Lanez's stepmother. The duo met in Nairobi in 2011 and tied the knot in June of the same year. But 'h-o-w' did he find himself in Kenya in the 'f-i-r-s-t' place? 

Not much however is known about Mrs Peterson whom a source intimated is called Wanda Terry Peterson.

Peterson, an ordained minister and missionary moved to the United States following his wife’s death from a rare disease.

It was during this period that he met a Kenyan lady online, who would influence him to relocate to Kenya.

“At first, I didn’t think I’d settle here until I met my wife. We were introduced in January 2011 by a friend and we got into a long-distance relationship. I was in Toronto and she was in Nairobi," he said in an interview with Eve Magazine in 2017.

“The first conversation we had we talked for about eight hours and in March of the same year I came to visit her family and in June of the same year we got married. Six years later, we have two kids.”

Peterson even grew his love for Kenyan music revealing that he loves Khaligraph Jones and Mercy Masika and other Kenyan artists.

"For hip hop, Khaligraph Jones is really good. When we go to reggae, in from the Caribbean so I, critical with reggae, but I think Redsan and Rufftone have a really good reggae sound," he said during an interview with TheStandard in 2017.

"For gospel, I really like Mercy Masika. There is a sincerity in the way she delivers. But I find lots of it shallow in the male category of the gospel industry."

In the same year, he also worked with prominent media personalities among them former Kiss FM presenter Kalekye Mumo, singer Amani, NTV journalist James Smart and others.
