(Hello, I want to notify you that I have received the feedback from my test and I tested positive for coronavirus. I am under medical care and I’m doing well. Also to thank the government for the care I am getting in the wards. I have been alone since Tuesday. The caregivers are doing a good job. I pray that we may all be safe with our families)

DJ Evolve, real name Felix Orinda, is recovering well after his third surgery. DJ Shock, who has been keeping in touch with the family, said Evolve is doing well.
“He is still recovering but only his mother is allowed to be close to him, other visitors wave from the outside of the glass,This was after his third surgery so the wound can heal as quickly as possible”
His mother has to wear a mask and apron when she enters his ward.
“It’s not to do with Covid-19. This was the protocol even before it was in the country,” Shock said.
“Yes, the nurses clean the wound every five days, as he now has movement in his arms. Eventually his legs will respond as well. I believe, too, he will make a full recovery.”
However, despite this good news, the family is wary of the growing hospital bill.
Early this month, a High Court judge Luka Kimaru ruled the order to pay the bill could only be issued by a civil court and not a criminal court.
“The accused person should continue paying the hospital bill as a moral duty to him, not as a court order. If he fails to pay, it is up to him and his God,” Kimaru ruled.
The family has reservations if Embakasi MP Babu Owino will help them settle the hospital bill that keeps skyrocketing. Already, it is almost hitting the Sh13 million mark.
Paul Okoye well known to many as Rudeboy was a member of the Nigerian group P Square together with his brother Peter Okoye aka Mr P. The two blood brothers broke up in 2018 over irreconcilable differences.
Since then, they have gone solo!
Talking to Uganda’s NBS over the weekend, the singer cited bad energy as the root cause many breakups.
“People tend to forget where they started from. Sometimes, fame could cause it, bad energy, money but if you value what you are doing, money can never be the issue. Bad energy brings the division”
“Sometimes you might think its the leader of the group that is causing the problem. But he is the one is in charge but you cannot continue distracting him. When people break, the leader is the one that feels the pain.”
He then went on to advise other musical groups.
“If you are in a group, just pray. Bad energy is everywhere that could come and destroy you guys.”
1. There was only one TV in the whole neighborhood and wrestling was the only program the owner of the TV allowed people to watch. The TV set was black and white and had an extended back, powered with a wet battery.
Once it ran out of charge you had to take it to the nearest center and wait for a whole three days to have it recharged again. That power was enough to run the TV for about two weeks.
2. Uchokozi – those days kids were rough. They were used to the daily beatings. Your neighbor had the right to give you a beating if they found you in the wrong and still report you to your mum which warranted an extra thrashing.
3. Kids ate soil and none of them ever got sick. How they survived only God can tell.
4. Whenever it rained, and better still with the hailstones, it was the best playing hour. One of the common games to play with the hailstones was to put it under the armpits and see for how long you’d hold it. Hailstones were to be eaten. Crushing those freezing stones and still not hurting our teeth.
5. Kids back then swam in the ever flowing rivers. They swam naked without caring who saw them. Kids nowadays can’t even pee in the presence of their parents. It’s modern privacy. Those rivers are now gone thanks to increased deforestation.
6. Some of the games kids played then include; dodge ball (nowadays called katty) marble game and playing house (cha mama) Technology has now killed this games. Kids are obsessed with video games and playing with their parents’ phones.
7. One of most enjoyable memories was spending Saturday and Sunday afternoon in a video show listening to movies told in local languages. The best narrator, DJ Afro, had every kid in thrills with those screeches that accompanied the action packed movies. Some of the kids however were not allowed as it was one of the places drugs and adult content was easily available.
8. Every village boy owned at least five dogs. The boys would converge at their favorite spot, each accompanied with his pack of dogs and they would head to the forest to hunt. These dogs had the highest level of intelligence. No dog feasted on what it had caught. It would take it back to the owner. The dogs would hunt and kill hares or antelopes.
Most of us will live to tell of the 90’s childhood.

In terms of league form the Anfield club are streets ahead of their rivals and even with another miraculous comeback the gap – 10 points at Christmas, with a game in hand – should be too big for Man City and Leicester to close.

The only brand-new addition to the championship this year is Vietnam’s new street circuit in Hanoi, which should be ready in time to hold its first race in just four months’ time.

The Kenyan music industry is continuously growing with every passing year.
Many people have come to realise the artsy nature of music.
Just like local artists, international musicians have realised the huge fan base they have in Kenya.
Some of them have visited and performed more than twice in the country.
Here are some of the international artists who performed this year.
Jamaican dancehall star Garfield Spence alias Konshens visited Kenya for the second time almost five years after his last visit.

The bruk off yuh back hit maker as expected did not disappoint in his performance.
He thrilled his over 10, 000 energetic fans with an electrifying performance for three hours.

Kanda Bongo Man
The Congolese musician was in Kenya during the two – day Koroga Festival which was held at the Bomas of Kenya.
The star curtain raised the event which celebrates African diversity in food, art and fashion.
His performance was proceeded by fellow compatriot-cum musician Mbilia Bel.
Other artists who performed at the festival included Emma Jalamo and Steve Kay.
Despite the cold weather, wet roads and mud, Kenyans turned out in large numbers to enjoy the African hits.
Bongo man is an internationally acclaimed Lingala musician.
He was living in Kenya for about five years before 1991.
The star was deported out of the country together with members of his band in still unexplained circumstances.

Kuti who performed on the second day of the event was the main act of the festival.

Kenyans came out in numbers and dressed to kill in African-themed attires.
Legendary singer Mbilia Bel was in the country for the 28th Edition of Koroga Festival. She introduced her new dance song called Kanyanga, which encourages people to forgive.
She also told Classic105.com in an excluisve interview of her relationship with the late South African singer Miriam Makeba asked her to take over, months before she died.
“Six months before her passing, she invited me to her home in South Africa and said to me ‘Mbilia, I am tired and I am old. It’s now your time to take the touch and hold it strong’,” the Congolese singer said.
“I cannot forget that. I have very warm and strong memories of Mama Africa [Miriam Makeba].”
Mofe Bamuyiwa, the photographer, captioned this photo:
‘Oh yes she’s human ! She’s also an angel ! “J A R E “
I want to portray the interception between her childhood and adulthood so both stay timeless !
I could have made her smile and make her laugh out loud but I put her in their natural moments for us to see through their eyes !
Posing them as adults ! Was my trick to create it a timeless portrait !
J A R E , when you clock 21 remember to do same pose and style.’
All in all, pretty much everyone who has laid eyes on her photos has been calling her, ‘The Most Beautiful Girl In The World.’
The Art of Music Foundation celebrated 10 years since inception with stellar performances headlined by Polish music composer, conductor and producer JIMEK (Radzimir Debski) and top Kenyan Orchestras.
The Foundation which was represented by the National Youth Orchestra of Kenya, Ghetto Classics and the Safaricom Youth Orchestra was also joined on stage by renowned Mexican pianist Jorge Viladoms. The celebration started with a Gala dinner on the evening of 30th November at the Trademark Hotel, followed by an open concert on the afternoon of 1st December at Amani Gardens in Karura Forest.
“10 years ago I would never have thought that we would come this far. We have had lots of challenges along the way, however, we have been able to overcome them due to the optimism of the 1,500 children under our guidance and care. We started with nothing more than faith and hope for a brighter future and the support we have received from donors, local and international musicians and the Safaricom International Jazz Festival has been priceless,” said Elizabeth Njoroge, Director, Art of Music Foundation.
JIMEK and Viladoms who have come to Kenya at different times for Safaricom International Jazz Festival have been collaborating with Art of Music Foundation by doing voluntary music classes with the children over the years.
“The Ghetto Classics music programme has been a beneficiary of the Safaricom International Jazz Festival since 2014 and has received KES 60 million, funds that have benefitted over 1,500 children from Nairobi and Mombasa.” Said Sylvia Mulinge, Chief Customer officer, Safaricom.
“Playing Hip Hop on classical instruments is something you have to practice for a long time before you get it right, which the orchestra does and it shows the kind of talent these young musicians have. I would like to congratulate Elizabeth and her team for work well done,” said JIMEK.
JIMEK was one of the headliners for the 2018 edition of Safaricom International Jazz Festival. He has worked on several projects with Ghetto Classics, among them, producing a song for Ghetto Classics member Cyndicate Kabei, titled Asante.
In addition, the Pole has donated KES 800,000 to cater for the needs of the children which was part of a cash prize he won at the Polish Film Academy Awards for best score to Sztuka Kochania/ Art of Loving in 2018.
Viladoms has been working closely with Ghetto Classics for four years and has committed to take 14 members of the music program to play alongside his students at the Youth Olympics in Lausanne, Switzerland in January 2020.
Women love bad boys and this is something that has been a mystery to many. It is not clear on what attracts them to these types of men but it is obvious that’s what works for them.
Bad boys attract unwanted attention regardless of whether they are handsome or not, whether loaded or not women don’t seem to consider this with many wanting to experience some adventure with the said men.
Mary J Blige sang a song dedicated to the bad boys and here she says”Me and Mr wrong get along so good even though he breaks my heart so bad, we’ve got something special going on.”
Here are the types of men that women are attracted to.
1. Nduthi Guys
These kind of men mostly attract young girls who are either still in school or new in campus. They are liked and loathed in equal measures for their promiscuous nature .
They have mainly contributed to increased early pregnancies among teens something that has left a bitter mouth in the society.
The above behaviour has not deterred married women who are now having sexual escapes and illicit affairs with these forbidden lot.
2. Gym instructors
Every woman wants a fit man. No one likes an over sized guy who cant even pick up after himself thus gym instructors attract women. Women are mainly attracted to gym instructors for their physique which is mainly attractive but in most scenarios end up disappointed when it reaches between the sheets.
So the next time you hear your woman is are hiring a male gym instructor, be very worried as you might end up single and depressed in this cold weather.
3. Dread locked guys
There is something about guys with dreadlocks that women cant resist. Most of the men are eye candies with well toned bodies good for our instagram pages and showing off to our friends.
Unlike some men who are unkempt most dread locked guys are well kept, with the well maintained body comes a good performance between the sheets something that a woman can’t resist.
