‘From a salon business to ‘simu ya jamii,’ Jobs Rayvanny did before fame

Before fame and money, most celebrities have struggled to make it to the top. It’s no different with Tanzanian singer Rayvanny who recently revealed his property was stolen while trying to make ends meet

I loved to do business even before I started singing. I worked in the phone kiosks and they stole what was mine,

Adding that;

I ventured into a salon business and started other businesses. So when you see me in the music industry also know that I have other things that I do on the side but music is in my blood.

Rayvanny is currently one of the most sought after singers in East Africa with a BET award.

Odibets launches bet bila bundle feature

Sports fanatics are in for a ride of their life after the introduction of a new feature christened “Bet bila bundles” by one of Kenya’s leading betting firms Odibets.


The feature will allow users to place bets without bundles on the Odibets platform after the firm signed a partnership with Kenya’s leading Telcos Safaricom.


The new  feature is set to help our customers place their bets for free and have the best browsing experience of their lifetime on the Odibets platform,” said Odibets Country Marketing manager Aggrey Sayi during the launch of the feature.


“We have launched this amazing feature in order to give back to our loyal customers who have always been with us through thick and thin,” concluded Aggrey Sayi during the launch.

Odibets recently launched an all-new user-friendly app that allows punters to easily navigate through their website and place bets. In addition, the app has a live streaming feature with the option of light and dark mode on their soccer bets.


The app also pushes instant notifications on games; punters place their bets and follow up on bets they placed. In addition, one gets a Sh 50 bonus for the first cash bet of Sh30 and above on the best betting app.


In early 2020, the betting firm also launched a new website that introduced a bet share option that enabled one to share his/her betslip with their friends. A few months back when the Coronavirus outbreak rendered the sporting scene dormant, Odibets was one of the first betting companies in the country to venture into virtual betting that took the Kenyan market by storm.


Odibets revamps its virtual betting platform

One of Kenya’s leading betting firms, Odibets has revamped its virtual betting platform, Odileague which now boasts several games from various leagues including the Kenya Premier League.


Virtual betting can be explained as the kind of betting availed by some bookies, in Kenya and the world, where customers can place bets on computer-generated games which function just like real matches with real teams and players.


The football matches are ‘real’ but much shorter, so you don’t have to wait for a whole 90 minutes for the match to end like a normal football match.

For example; a review on Odi League, one can place their virtual bets on the various markets i.e GG, over 1.5 and 2.5 and the first team to score just like they would on real sports bets.


Games every minute

Matches in Odileague usually take about 35 seconds each, but the winning value remains the same as those of actual matches and their odds.

Another feature on the new Odileague that is set to excite punters is instantly resulting in matches.

Markets like GG and half-time results get their results before the end of the game.


Win up to one million shillings

On the all-new Odileague one can win up to one million shillings depending on the bets they place. An example of a lucky winner with Odileague is one Alice Kinya who place a bet with only 49 shillings and won Sh500,000.

Early last month, Odibets launched an all-new user-friendly app that included a welcome package that came in form of a bonus.

The Odibets betting app has features like streaming live games, sharing bet slips and light and dark mode options.

The app also pushes instant notifications on games that punters have placed their bets on.


Causes of premenstrual symptoms (PMS) and how to fix it

 Feelings of irritability, cravings and fatigue are as common around the time of your period but many don’t know how to deal with premenstrual symptoms

But what you might not know is what is causing your premenstrual symptoms (PMS) and how to deal with it.

Fertility specialist, Dr Nat Kringoudis, believes that stress is one of the major factors that contributes to PMS.

Classy gifts to buy your father this Father’s day to celebrate him

According to Daily Mail Dr Nat  shared the eight ways you can beat or at least relieve symptoms around your time of the month, and the one superfood that will help to balance your hormones.

Writing on her blog, Melbourne-based Dr Kringoudis explained exactly why a hard time at work or home might contribute to your PMS.

‘Stress in the body undermines pretty much every bodily function, and given our reproductive systems are the most sensitive, stress will definitely impact its function,’ she said.

RIP!!!!!Nyamira governor John Nyangarama’s son dies of menengitis

The specialist added that ‘during PMS, that stress can impact our body’s ability to regulate hormones effectively – the additional cortisol and other stress hormones can upset functioning levels of progesterone’.

Progesterone is the ‘feel good’ hormone, and Dr Kringoudis said that when it goes ‘too low, too quickly in our luteal phase, it can feel like PMS is getting the best of us’.

So how can you beat PMS, or at least relieve the symptoms when you’re feeling low?

First, there is one superfood that Dr Kringoudis believes we should all incorporate into our daily regimes: Maca powder.

‘Maca gets the title of a superfood because it delivers on the nutrition front,’ she said. ‘It’s totally full of vitamins and minerals as well as enzymes and amino acids… It’s full of B vitamins, which are good for energy, and magnesium – one of my favourite all-round period fixers.’

Next, she said there are eight other things you can do to regulate your hormones and reduce feelings of nausea, bloating and irritability.

‘Drink chamomile tea, as it will help to keep you calm and can also help alleviate cramping associated with menstrual bleeding.’

Dr Kringoudis also recommends loading your plate up with Vegemite, which is ‘loaded with B vitamins which immediately balance out oestrogen and boost the feel good hormones, dopamine and serotonin’.

The eight things you should do to beat PMS

1. Drink chamomile tea.

2. Pull in the reins and go gently.

3. Eat Vegemite.

4. Take some gentle exercise.

5. Prioritise rest.

6. Get some sunshine in.

7. Bathe in lavender oil.

8. Stock up on Maca powder.

7 type of neighbors you are likely to meet in Nairobi’s flats and estates

The search for greener pastures has seen many Kenyans relocate to Nairobi and its surroundings, creating more neighborhoods.

The government even introduced the ‘Nyumba Kumi’ initiative to be able to handle the rise of insecurity due to increase in ‘majirani’.

With the increase in population emerges a rare breed of neighbors who are not only annoying and petty but a pain as well for their uncouth behavior.

Here are the types of neighbors you are likely to find.

1. Nosy

We all have seen that one neighbor who wants to know anything and everything that happens in your house. From who you are dating to what you ate last night. They will always seek to find out where do you buy your clothes, who is that booty call who checks into your house at midnight on those lazy Saturday nights etc.

One would be mistaken to think they are compiling a top secret, classified report to give it to the police.

STYLE UP!!! Annoying Habits Kenyans Should Stop In Matatus

2. Stalkers

They are the kind of neighbors that stalk you wherever you go just to have some juicy information to share with other idle people who might be willing to listen to her. If they don’t do it physically, they create pseudo accounts to cyber stalk you.

She will befriend you on all social media platforms, come to your house uninvited and even try talking to you whether you want to or not.

3. Thieves

These are the kind of neighbors who have ‘mkono mrefu’ they never miss to see your new lingerie on the clothes line or a new pair of shoes and not grab them.

Problem comes in when you go and claim it as yours, they deny it so much even swearing with the names of their long dead ancestors.

4. Gossipers

Such neighbors are termed ‘BBC’ for their know it all attitude. They are better than CSI when it comes to investigating their neigbours. They have a PHD in not minding their business. Nothing seems to pass their ears.


They know who fathered who, who is dying, who killed who, where and when…It is lke they are always there when anything happens.

Stylish pastor Robert Burale’s unwritten rules to men and how to not to break the ‘bro code’

5. Drama Queens

This are the worst type of neighbors one could ever come across always causing drama at the slightest provocation. Always arguing over who fetches water first, whose clothes line they will hoard, why were you staring at their husband and many other petty issues.

Such neighbors also love attention and will do anything including shouting and name calling just to look like the ‘boss’.

6. Dirty and Unkempt

NEMA should arrest such neighbors for their unhealthy behavior which puts everyone at risk of getting communicable diseases such a cholera.

So annoying are these neighbors that it requires some self control not to get into a confrontation with them, they throw waste anywhere, leave uncovered diapers all over, leave the communal sink littered with food leftovers thus blocking it in the process.

Celebration in Ireland as ABORTION is legalized amidst rejection by some

7. Slay Queens

This neighbors are always idle, strutting along the corridors showcasing any thing new they might have bought including some cheap second hand dresses which leaves nothing to imagination.

They always have a mirror trying to re-pimp their make just in case the guy next door fails to notice them. Such neighbors pretend to be well versed when it comes to fashion when they actually know nothing at all.

Did you wear your bra today?

October is a breast cancer awareness month and on this day, 13th October, women are encouraged to be bra-less to encourage breast cancer awareness.

So, did you wear your bra today?

But there has always been pressure from the society to wear a bra as most people are considered ‘ratchet’ or rather naked without a bra.

There are many reasons why women wear bras, but the main reason as to why these clothes were created was to hide breasts or make them appear smaller.

Well, on this day, you are allowed to free your boobs and have a lovely no bra day.

Morning conversation: “Would you wash your man’s boxers?”

Whether or not, you would wash your man’s boxers was the conversation this morning on Maina and King’ang’i. Well, Classic105 listeners came out to give their personal experience and opinion on the matter.

One lister said it is the man’s personal responsibility to cater to his personal hygiene and that she would never do it.

Another one said it is every woman’s responsibility to make sure that her man’s boxers are clean and well kept.

“I do not tolerate any kind of laziness and uncleanness,” tweeted a listener

Another listener said he is free to wash his woman’s under-garments without fear of being judged.

Morning Conversation: Kenyans have this habit of giving unsolicited advice

Captain Kale, a die-hard fan of Maina and Kingangi in the morning said,

“How can a man wash his woman’s underwear? There are some things a man should never do. The moment you start doing these things, you are done.”


“A woman who is a wife material will never be told to do this and this, that’s why I paid for you to come to my house, I paid the dowry.”

“If you give the housegirl that job, she will become your co-wife. I wash her underwear as who? Those are not men, they are boys.”

“She should be able to even buy and bring the boxers to her”

Men, Here Are A Few Tips On How To Impress Your Bae


Kenyan men argue that women are materialistic while on the other hand women argue that Kenyan men are stingy.

Could all this be due to conflict of interests? Or is it that our men don’t take time to understand what women want.

Today we give men a few hints on what really impresses women as you all know, mwanaume ni effort.

Designer Shoes

Just like the way to a man’s heart is through the stomach, the way to a woman’s heart is a nice designer shoe. Women love to look good and a nice pair of stilettos gives them that confidence and makes them feel beautiful. So in case you are wondering what to get her, just get that shoe.

For those who walk like ducks in heels, these are not meant for you


 Designer Handbag

A handbag is more like a woman’s baby, wherever she goes it goes too. Handbags are like a woman’s office and thus they strive to get the best brand in the market. It’s every woman’s dream  to own a designer handbag so go ahead and gift her that Gucci bag, or LOUIS VUITTON bag she has been eyeing.

Designer Perfume

We all want to start the day smelling good. Men, forget about buying your woman those cheap perfumes and deodorants sold by the roadside and get her some nice designer item.

She will not only be in a good mood but she will try and impress you too and you never know what she might settle for.


A Vacation

Going out on a vacation is every woman’s dream, with all the hustle and bustle around, an all paid vacation is the way to win  your woman’s heart .

This is a nice time for women to flaunt their curves and their bikini bodies. After all, that’s why women work so hard at the gym.

This can  only happen after the coronavirus pandemic.


Designer Make Up Kit

No one wants to walk with smudged lipstick or sweaty make up. Every woman wants to own a designer make up kit to achieve that flawless face. Go ahead and get her that and she will love you forever. After all mwanamke ni sura.

 A Man Who Cooks

We all want to be spoiled. A man who cooks for his woman is heaven sent. There is nothing more s3xy like a man in the kitchen.

It’s very romantic to come home to a warm meal and this act would warm even the hardest of hearts.


Spontaneous Surprises

Women love surprises. In this day and age, things are moving very fast that means that important events in our lives are slowly being overtaken, but no matter how petty it may sound women still expect you to remember all big days in their lives. To win a woman’s heart just keep tabs on when her birthday is, graduation and drop spontaneous gifts and notes and she will be yours forever.


So men, the next time you want to impress your woman, make sure these things are on your list.

Odibets rolls out kitting initiative to support local teams

Kenyan betting firm Odibets has re-launched its initiative “Odimtaani” that had earlier this year seen several teams participating in the county leagues get kitted with football jerseys.

Towards the end of 2019, Odibets signed a multi-million sponsorship deal with Football Kenya Federation (FKF) to help develop grassroots football.

According to Odibet’s country marketing manager Aggrey Sayi, Odimtaani initiative intends to hand over more than 35,000 kits, as it seeks to promote local talent across the country.

Addressing the press, Mr Sayi said that the plan is to benefit the entire community by empowering local teams to enable them to perform better on the pitch.

“Clubs at the grassroots have been struggling to get proper equipment and kits. This is a timely boost and I am confident that it will go a long way in actualizing the dreams of young talented players in the country,” said Aggrey Sayi.

The OdiMtaani team had earlier this week touched base in Busia and Kakamega counties.

This is after the team toured Migori, Siaya, and Homabay counties last week.

County League clubs around the country will also be entitled to at least six balls and kits and other in-kind provisions from Odibets. The kit sponsorship is among the biggest initiatives in Kenya and could see the company further penetrate into the local betting industry.

How Dancehall artist’s life in Kawangare got changed

Odibets has not only established itself as one of the leading betting firms in Kenya but a company that has the interests of the youth in the country, especially at the grassroots level.

The company is known for having the youths’ sports needs at heart, and this has been proven through their unwavering support; offering better betting odds or sponsoring local tournaments and kitting over 35,000 youths in the country.

Apart from these mega initiatives by Odibets to support the youth at the grassroots, it has now ventured into tapping into youngsters with musical talents.

A testament to this is one dancehall artiste Dennis Gakunga Njuguna, who goes by the stage name Machete Boloman, and hails from Nairobi’s Kawangware.

The renowned artist in Kawangware dropped a banger dubbed, Odibets. ‘Siwezi bet ka firm sio Odibets. Odibets mambo yote,” part of the lyrics by Machete Boloman.

This journalist reached out to the dancehall artist to understand what motivated and prompted him to unleash the song about the betting firm.

According to Machete, who formerly played football, he wrote a song to appreciate the good work Odibets has been doing in supporting upcoming talent, and asked one of their brand ambassadors in Kawangware, to have the Odibets management listen to the song he had recorded via phone.

A month later, he received a call that he was needed at the Odibets offices, where they offered to pay for five of his projects, both audio and visual.

In the deal, his song Odibets would be the first project to be worked on. He has worked with producer Magix Enga in producing the first song.

“There are two Odibets brand ambassadors from the hood who are my good friends, so I wrote the song, recorded on phone and I asked them to give to the Odibet management and after a month, I was told they needed me at their office and that was when I was given the deal, and I went to record at Magix Enga’s studio.

“They have paid for five of my projects and Odibet is only the first of the five. They asked me to look for a good producer and I went to Magix Enga. I have 4 other projects which are fully paid for and I’m grateful to Odibets, they are doing a lot for me as a youth. The deal includes audio and video,” said Boloman.

Asked about what his community thinks about the song, the dancehall artiste said that the reception has been good and people have been praising him for singing about Odibets, a company that is making a great impact in the community.

Punters in for a treat as the new Odibets app now comes with a bonus

Speaking to journalists, Odibets Country marketing manager Aggrey Sayi says that the new app is set to take punter’s betting experiences to a whole new level with the various new features and bonuses that come with it.

“We are happy to launch this new amazing feature that will help sports lovers enjoy the several games that are being played in the various leagues at the comfort of their homes,” said Odibets Country Marketing manager Aggrey Sayi.

Live Stream and Analysis Feature launched on Odibets

The return of sporting activities around has been a reprieve for not only football fans all over the world but for punters who were left desolate after several months of inactivity due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


However, a section of football fanatics still misses going out to various entertainment joints to hang out with friends as they watch football matches due to Government restriction of closing bars and the 9 PM – 4 AM curfew.


To all the sports lovers that have been affected, worry not as one of the leading betting firms in the country Odibets has launched a live stream and analysis feature on its betting website.

The feature is set to offer sports fanatics information and an in-depth analysis of games that are available on the Odibets platform. This will not only help better live betting on sports, but generally enhance the users betting experience.

Kangemi man wins big after predicting all draws bet on Odibets

Was it a stroke of genius or the day the Lord had made for one John Matoke? We will never know this is after Mr Matoke won Sh1,173,000 on Odibets after placing two separate bets of Sh500 and Sh300.

Matoke, who knew about Odibets through a friend, placed his bets that entailed draws just before the weekend games.

“A friend of mine introduced me to Odibets and before my big win I had been always trying my luck on various games from the different leagues that had resumed,” said an elated John as he spoke to journalists.

The office administrator who is an ardent soccer betting fan went on to explain how he was overwhelmed with joy his congratulatory message on his win from Odibets.

“When I got the message that I had won, I jumped up and down with excitement not knowing that there was more to come as a few hours later I received another message that I had won again,” said John as he received his cheque from Odibets Country marketing manager Aggrey Sayi.

John who placed his bet via SMS said that he intends to build a house with his winnings and also help better the lives of his family.

Early this month, it was a dream come true for one John Githaiga after he won Sh505,692 on Odibets after placing an 11-team multi-bet prediction that sailed through.

A jovial Githaiga mentioned that he had predicted over 2.5 goals for all the eleven matches in his bet slip.

Comedian Njoro battles depression, talks contemplating suicide


Popular comedian Njoro, has been battling depression and even tried contemplainting suicide three times. The comedian opened up about his story revealing that he has been under medication

‘maisha imenitandika sana. I contemplated suicide three times na zote zimefail but that’s God’s plans. Hadi mathee akasema hapana huyu kijana anaenda…’ he said,


‘Truth be told siko poa. Mimi it drained me mpaka nikaingia depression and it was bad. I’ve been on medication but things arent good. My dad was diagnosed with stomach cancer, I have four kids to take care of…and lost everything’

Njoro, who cracked our ribs whenever he featured on churchill show went ahead to share disturbing details.

‘October, November, and December last year nilikuwa mbaya. Instagram yangu sikuwa napost anything because I was in a bad state. I wanted to commit suicide at viewpoint but god sent someone. I was saying my last prayer when a truck driver heard me. He put a towing rope on my car and after I was done with prayers, I was ready to die but the car wasn’t moving. He told ‘hutwafanya hio kitu’ and we attracted a crowd,’ he recounted.

The father of four continued,

‘The first suicide attempt I took rat and rat and the second attempt I bought dawa ya ng’ombe (chemical used in cattle dips to clean animals) and another time I tried chopping off my wrist, but they all didn’t work. I lost everything, friends and that’s what triggered depression.’

He admitted that he stopped taking alcohol and would like to visit trained personnel in mental health to counsel him and asked well-wishers to give him a job.

‘Sahii comedy no. Kama kuna mtu ako na kazi aniite hata kesho nitaanza.’

His revelation comes after comedianne Zeddy came out to say that Njoro and comedian Wakimani were depressed. Wakimani has since sought help.
