Diamond Platnumz ex Zari finds a new bae, she can’t keep calm

Zari Hasan seems to have found a new man almost an year after she broke up with Diamond Platnumz the father of her two kids.

She recently flaunted gifts from her mysterious man and they were all purchased from the Louis Vuitton store. In one of her posts, she thanked her man for being the best and she wrote;







The businesswoman, who is among the most successful women in East African region dumped Diamond (the father of her two children) on Valentine’s Day in 2018, citing infidelity as the main reason for their break up.

Her touching message read;

“Understand that this is very difficult for me to do. 
There have been multiple rumors some with evidence floating around in ALL SORTS of media in regards to Diamond’s constant cheating and sadly I have decided to end my relationship with Diamond, as my RESPECT, INTEGRITY, DIGNITY & WELL BEING cannot be compromised. 
We are separating as partners but not as parents. 

This doesn’t reduce me as a self-made individual, and as a caring mother, and the boss lady you have all come to know. 
I will continue to build as a mogul, i will inspire the world of women to become boss ladies too. 
I will teach my four sons to always respect women, and teach my daughter what self-respect means. 
Unlike many, I’ve been in the entertainment industry for 12 years, and through all my challenges I came out a victor because I am a winner, and so are all of you Zari supporters.

Kenyan celebrity parents who have lost their kids in recent years

It is hard losing a child. No parent is ever prepared for this and when death knocks most parents mourn for years while some never over come the loss.

Dr Burton Grebin once said 

“The death of a child is the most single most traumatic event in medicine.To lose a child is to lose a piece of yourself “.

Some Kenyan celebrities have experienced this loss first hand and some don’t publicly express it, it doesn’t mean they aren’t hurting. So the next time you meet them on the street be kind because kindness does not hurt.

  1. Michael Okinyi

The TV presenter lost his son after he succumbed to complications related to Sickle cell anemia. In 2015, Okinyi announced the demise of his son to the public in the tweet below.

2. Shiru wa GP

The venacular artiste famously known for hits such as ‘Agiginya’ was a mother to twins (boy and girl) before losing one of them after he developed a chest infection that saw him admitted to Nairobi Women’s Hospital, where he sadly lost the battle.

In an earlier interview with Jeff on Inooro Fm, Shiru wa GP opened up about losing her son and she said:

“It was a bad experience because I didn’t expect it. It’s one of those situations when you have tried so hard then you finally have something good and then the devil snatches it from your hands. I had tried conceiving for 9 years, heading to 10 when God blessed me with twins. I was very excited even though they did not make it to term as they were born 2 months premature. At that point, I didn’t even ask people to pray with me as I knew God had already blessed me in a big way. It (the loss of my baby and my admission) was not only challenging emotionally but also financially as the bill had accumulated up to Shs4.5 million so I had to reach out for financial aid which wasn’t easy.”

God has been gracious to her as she still has her daughter.

3. Dbanj

Nelson Mandela voted as the most influential leader of the 20th century

The late Nelson Mandela has beaten Margaret Thatcher to clinch the most inspirational leader in the 20th century according to a BBC show ‘Icons’

The  public has whittled down a list of the ‘greatest’ people of the 20th century to seven finalists – all of whom are men.

The BBC show Icons initially picked seven categories with four inspirational characters included in each field.

Convicted pedophile confesses to marrying women so he could sodomize her boys

The categories were leaders, explorers, scientists, entertainers, activists, sports stars, and artists/writers.

The public has been voting for which individual in each field most deserved to reach the programme finale next Tuesday.

But despite 12 women being included on the longlist of 28 ‘greats’ of the last century, selected by a ‘panel of experts’, none won in their category.

The BBC offered the public a choice of four 20th Century ‘Icons’ in each of seven categories. In the ‘Leader’ category, above, Mrs Thatcher, FDR, and Sir winston Churchill all lost out to Nelson Mandela

Pablo Picasso beat Alfred Hitchcock, Andy Warhol and Virginia Woolf to be named the best artist in the X-factor style history show, completing the line-up of finalists.

Margaret Thatcher had lost out to Nelson Mandela in the leader category, while physicist Marie Curie and pharmaceutical chemist Tu Youyou – who developed medicine to treat malaria – were beaten by Alan Turing for the best scientist.

The late David Bowie pipped Billie Holiday and Marilyn Monroe to be named the greatest entertainer. They will be pitted against Ernest Shackleton, Dr Martin Luther King Jr. and Muhammad Ali in the live hour-long final.

The late Nelson Mandela

The programme, hosted by Claudia Winkleman and Nick Robinson, will see seven celebrity advocates give a speech to convince viewers to vote for the icon in their category.

The late David Bowie pipped Billie Holiday and Marilyn Monroe to be named the greatest entertainer

Model Lily Cole, during her episode on artists and writers, said: ‘Pablo Picasso was a pioneer of modern art. He wasn’t afraid to use his status to shout loudly about the horror of war, and his iconic work is as relevant today as it was then.’

In his episode, naturalist Chris Packham praised Turing – who is thought to have had Asperger’s – for being an example of why it is ‘worth putting up with’ people who have Autism.

Packham, who was diagnosed with Asperger’s in 2005, said: ‘We know that as a child he was ostracised by his peers, again this is something which I experienced, we find it difficult to integrate and to understand the social norms of that group of people.’

The other advocates set to go head-to-head in the final include actress Kathleen Turner (for entertainers), comedian Sanjeev Bhaskar (for activists), Clare Balding (for sports stars), Sir Trevor McDonald (for leaders) and Dermot O’Leary (for explorers).

The Corporation has billed the show as ‘the most ambitious BBC history series in a decade’ which ‘has told the definitive story of the 20th century through the people who had the most impact on it.’

The Icons final airs on Tuesday at 9pm on BBC Two.

Cervical Cancer: What you need to know, do’s and don’ts

Have you been experiencing yeast infection or urinary tract infection? Or do you experience pelvic pain, or bleeding between menstrual cycles?

Well, don’t brush it off – this could be cervical cancer manifesting itself at an advanced stage.

Like the other forms of cancer, cervical cancer doesn’t usually present symptoms until in later stages.

Dr Geoffrey Mutuma from Zambezi Cancer and General Hospital in South C, Nairobi, says symptoms may also include bleeding after intercourse and a foul-smelling discharge from the vagina.

‘I couldn’t say NO’ Wilbroda opens up about her battle with alcohol


Data released by the World Health Organisation in September last year showed cervical cancer was the second leading cause of cancer amongst women causing 5,250 deaths per year in Kenya. Breast cancer leads at 5,985 deaths.

Overall, the WHO report said 90 Kenyans die daily from all forms of cancer, an equivalent of 32,900 deaths (69% of victims) per year.

Despite campaigns and efforts to win the war on cancer, the situation has worsened. There has been a near 20 per cent increase in cases diagnosed every year.

Dr Mutuma said this is partly because most patients seek treatment when it’s too late.

“Cancer of the cervix is not painful when it’s starting. Normally, people have problems when cancer has reached stage four when it cannot be treated or treatment becomes very difficult,” Mutuma said.


The country is this week observing the National Cervical Cancer awareness week. In Nairobi, free screening kicked off on January 21 and will run until January 27 at Kenyatta National Hospital, Melchizedek Hospital in Dagoretti Corner and Cancer Texas Centre.

Exclusive: Maina Kageni finally reveals why he is not getting married

The free screening will also be conducted at Uhuru Park on Sunday, January 27, during a Cervical Cancer Awareness Walk.

Dr Mutuma encouraged young girls and women to go for early screening. Doctors diagnose presence of cancerous cells at the cervix through a process called pap smear.

He said if detected early, all types of cancer can be cured.

“At stage one and two, the cancerous tumours can be removed through an operation but once it reaches stage three and four the only remedy is chemotherapy or radiotherapy,” Mutuma said.

He said, however, that most patients (about 75%) present themselves for treatment when the disease is in stage four. Patients rarely present themselves for treatment at stage one or two, he said.

“So the way to prevent and reduce the incidences of cancer of the cervix is through awareness and screening,” Dr Mutuma said.

Doctors recommend that women aged between 18 and 50 go for pap smears every two years while those aged between 50 and 75 years go after every four years.

What causes cervical cancer?

There is no known cause for cancer, but certain risk factors trigger various forms of the disease.

According to Dr Mutuma, the human papillomavirus (HPV) is a risk factor for cervical cancer. He said the majority of cervical cancer patients have HPV.

There are more than 200 types of HPV, but type 16 and 18 are the two most cancer-causing types.

HPV is sexually transmitted through anal, oral or vaginal sex.

Dr Mutuma cautioned women with multiple sex partners saying they put themselves at risk of developing cervical cancer as a result of HPV infection.

Ghanian artiste Quata Budukusu narrates horrifying bee attack in South B

To detect HPV, a test similar to pap smear is done. It involves swabbing the cervix with a device that is similar to a cotton swab.

The cells are then tested for the presence of genetic material associated with HPV.

Dr Mutuma advised women and young girls to get PHV vaccine to minimize the chances of acquiring the virus.

It can be administered to girls from the ages of nine and 25.

The doctor, however, said for some unknown reasons, the uptake of HPV vaccine is very poor in Kenya.

“We have never understood why but it is very important for women to go for HPV vaccine,” he said.

Dr Weston Khisa, an Obstetrician and Gynaecologist at Kenyatta National Hospital said, because of HPV, cervical cancer is sometimes regarded as a sexually transmitted disease.

He said a man who has unprotected sex with a woman with HPV, he runs the risk of developing cancer of the penis.

“It is a rare thing but it can happen,” he said, adding that studies are underway to develop HPV vaccine for men.

“Once trials get through, then men can also have a type of HPV vaccine that is appropriate to them,” he said.

During an interview with TshisaLIVE a year ago, Mtukudzi spoke about his excitement of releasing his 67th album.

He said the most significant thing about his upcoming album, Hanya’Ga (Concern) was the message.

“My 67th album is meant to share a message of introspecting and I’m hoping people learn a thing or two from it. It’s an album I wrote last year after I realised that the world keeps getting tangled up in ‘unnecessary’ problems.

“All because we are focused on competing and being better than the next person. In so doing we keep stepping on each other’s toes but that is not how God created us. God meant for us to compliment each other, that’s why he didn’t duplicate talent,” he said at the time.

Prayers needed. 2018, October 7th and 10th, earthquake in Kampala and the neighboring country Kenya, only one child will be reported dead. 2019, January, 14 at midnight, the nation of Kenya will be attacked again and Nigeria also on 28th May. Prayers needed. Do not forget to share. God bless you.”
