He wants it back! Ciara’s husband tells her it’s time to stop breastfeeding

 

Ciara shared a cute clip of her husband Russel Wilson telling her it is time to give up breastfeeding their son.

In the video, a frustrated Russell can be heard saying ‘his nutrition is good’, as Ciara laughs about it.

He added “He’s old enough, let me feed”.

In the Instagram story video, we see the couple sitting on the couch as Ciara asks her man to repeat something that he mumbled about her breastfeeding.

Russell repeats that he thinks Ciara’s a little “selfish” with her time these days.

“I said it’s time,  it’s time to give it up. I mean — he’s old enough, his nutrition’s good, it’s time. You’re being selfish now at this point,” he told his wife with a smile and a laugh.

He added, “No more late nights — you and I, just you and I — let me feed.”

Ciara and Russell Wilson, who have been married since July 2016, welcomed their third child, Win Harrison Wilson on July 23, 2020.

In January 2020, Ciara and Wilson surprised the world with pregnancy news. “Number 3,” Ciara wrote alongside a photo of her in a swimsuit showing off a baby bump.

And on July 23, they welcomed their baby, Win Harrison Wilson.

Yes, hata Cardi b hukula! The benefits of Matumbo you didn’t know!

Cardi B really knows how to get Kenyans excited. The rapper has a knack for speaking about things that are very close to our hearts.

Earlier this month, the mother of one praised our matatu culture after she spotted some vehicles bearing beautiful graffiti of her visage.


View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Cardi B (@iamcardib)

But who knew that that wouldn’t be the only time that Kenyans would be eagerly speaking about the American rapper’s tastes this year.

Yesterday, the former stripper posted a video on her Twitter page of herself eating tripe, commonly known as Matumbo to many Kenyans.

The WAP hitmaker decided to show off the tripe that she was about to dig into. Cardi could not hide the excitement she had for having to taste one of her favorite foods.

A few hours into the post on her verified Twitter handle, Cardi B’s video had accumulated more than 2 million views, with Kenyans, in particular, going gaga over the news.

“I can’t believe Cardi B eats HomePub Matumbo, I never want to hear the slander again,” wrote one Fanta Guy.

In the video, Cardi B spoke so highly of the food making it seem like it always had something so good hidden in it. But is there something special about the meat that some Kenyans consider as an acquired taste?

According to medical sources, yes, there is. Let’s begin.

Tripe or matumbo is a type of organ meat made from the edible stomach lining of farm animals. Ruminant animals like cows, buffalo and sheep have multiple stomach chambers to properly digest their food.

Beef tripe is one of the most commonly eaten varieties. It has a chewy texture and a mild taste, taking on the flavour of other ingredients it is cooked with.

Tripe/Matumbo can benefit both your health and your wallet in the following ways

Tripe is a complete source of protein, meaning that it contains all nine essential amino acids your body needs to function.

Adding protein-rich foods to your diet is an excellent way to lose excess body fat or maintain a healthy weight.

Protein is the most filling of all nutrients. Adding a protein source like tripe to meals and snacks can help reduce hunger, preventing the chances of overeating.

Affordable and Sustainable. Because tripe is not as desirable as steak and other meat products, it’s a more affordable protein option for those trying to save money.

Tripe packs an impressive amount of nutrients, including selenium, zinc and vitamin B12.

A 5-ounce (140-gram) serving of cooked beef tripe delivers 25% of the RDI for selenium and more than 15% of the RDI for both vitamin B12 and zinc.

Vitamin B12 is essential for red blood cell production, nerve transmission and energy production, while zinc is vital for cell division, immune function and carbohydrate metabolism (9Trusted Source, 10Trusted Source).

Selenium is a mineral that acts as a powerful antioxidant in your body. It’s also needed for DNA production, thyroid health and metabolism (11Trusted Source).

Additionally, tripe is a good source of the minerals calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and iron.

Downsides

The smell, taste and texture of tripe may turn some people off, especially if it’s not prepared in the right way. Plus, tripe is high in cholesterol, which may not be the best choice for those who are sensitive to high-cholesterol foods.

Baby number 3? Mama Diamond Platnumz shocks with “pregnancy” photos at 48-years

Diamond Platnumz’s mother shut down the internet in January when she revealed that her son’s father Mzee Abdul wasn’t the stars biological dad as we had all come to believe he was.

The news shocked even the people who don’t care about entertainment news as its impact reverberated because of the clout that Diamond has.

And it seems that the lady wants to cause more tsunami’s in the industry after a recent photo shoot of hers sparked fears that she might be with child at the ripe old age of 48.

Mama Diamond is back with another tale where she claims to be pregnant for her Ben 10, Uncle Shamte who married her 4 years ago.

And while the rumour has been doing the rounds online, her recent photo shoot with her “daughter” Esma clasping her stomach implies that Mama Dangote might be heavy with her 3rd child.

If you doubt this then check out the photos below;

Can a woman her age get pregnant? Yes, It is possible.

As women age, the risk of problems in pregnancy increases, including miscarriage, chromosomal abnormalities such as Down syndrome, and other complications such as gestational diabetes, high blood pressure, and bleeding.

A study in the February 2000 issue of Obstetrics and Gynecology showed that women over 40 are at higher risk of experiencing the sudden death of their fetuses than their younger counterparts.

There’s normally a steep decline in a woman’s ability to get pregnant naturally in her 40s. At age 40, your odds of conceiving after 3 months of trying are around 7 percent.

Over time, the quantity and quality of your eggs decline. Older eggs can have more chromosome problems, which increases the odds of having a baby with a birth defect.

Most women in their 40s can still have a healthy pregnancy and baby, but the risks increase significantly during this time. These risks include:

C-section delivery
premature birth
low birth weight
birth defects
stillbirth

Medical conditions, like diabetes and high blood pressure, are more common in women after age 35. These can lead to pregnancy complications like gestational diabetes and preeclampsia.

After age 40, your doctor may do extra testing and monitoring to look for possible complications.

If you’re over 35 and you’ve been trying to get pregnant for more than 6 months, you might be dealing with fertility issues. Your doctor or a fertility specialist can help determine why you aren’t pregnant yet and recommend next steps for trying to conceive.

Assisted reproductive technologies (ART) can help you conceive, but they can’t entirely make up for age-related declines in your fertility.

Doctors treat fertility issues in women with drugs that stimulate egg production, and techniques like in vitro fertilization (IVF).

But the odds of achieving a successful pregnancy with these methods do get lower as you age.

Another option is to use a healthy donor egg. The egg is fertilized with your partner’s sperm and then transferred to your uterus.

Breaking!!! Tiger Woods undergoing surgery after terrible single car crash

Tiger Woods is in surgery after suffering “multiple leg injuries” in a car crash in Los Angeles, California. The LA County Sheriff’s Department said that it “responded to a single-vehicle rollover” accident in which the “vehicle sustained major damage”.

The 15-time golf major champion, 45, had to be “extricated from the wreck” by firefighters and paramedics with a machine called the jaws of life. Footage of the car crash is below:

Woods’ agent Mark Steinberg said: “He is currently in surgery and we thank you for your privacy and support.”

Steinberg confirmed the detail about the American having sustained “multiple leg injuries”.

Woods was at the Riviera Country Club in LA at the weekend as host of the Genesis Invitational.

A statement from the LA County Sheriff’s Department said it responded to the crash “on the border of Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes” on Tuesday morning.

It added: “Mr. Woods was extricated from the wreck with the ‘jaws of life’ by Los Angeles County firefighters and paramedics, then transported to a local hospital by ambulance for his injuries.”

Woods was involved in a car crash in November 2009 which eventually led to admissions of infidelity and the breakdown of his marriage and he took a break from golf.

He returned not long after but following five wins in 2013, Woods started just 24 events in the next four years because of chronic back pain and multiple surgeries.

In 2017 Woods was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence when he was found asleep at the wheel of his car. He later pleaded guilty to reckless driving.

He had five prescription drugs in his system as he recovered from the spinal fusion surgery that ultimately gave him a second golfing career.

However, he ended an 11-year wait for a major title when he won the Masters at Augusta in 2019.

“I almost lost my son the 3rd night after his birth!” Size 8 says in powerful testimony

To say that Size 8 has had a terrible experience when it comes to childbirth would be an understatement. The gospel singer famously had a miscarriage in December 2018, something that nearly ended her marriage to her husband Dj Mo.

But the couple weathered the storm and God wiped their tears the next year as they were blessed with a baby boy called Muraya Junior, adding to their daughter, Ladasha Belle.

But even Muraya was born with considerable trouble, something that Size 8 spoke about in the past disclosing that hers and the baby’s life had been in danger during the period.

Yesterday, the singer went deeper into the subject divulging as yet unheard of details about that time in her life. The musician explained that she had almost lost Muraya Junior in ICU.

She posted a picture of Muraya while in the ICU months ago, versus him currently.

”Mungu UMETENDA makuu huyu alikuwa @murayajnr 1st days in hospital in the ICU I almost lost him the 3rd night doctors surrounded him trying their best to save his life and Jesus Christ alive in me did a miracle and my son didn’t die.

You see me always praising God for He has done beyond my imagination!!! I am nothing without God. Never give up on God no matter how hard your situation is. I TESTIFY ABOUT GOD DAILY. Bow down and worship YAWEH…”

Size 8’s story should not be taken lightly as gospel musician Kambua revealed this week that she had lost her son a few days after delivery, showing how delicate those first few days can be for a new-born baby.

No Joke! Top criminal lawyer Cliff Ombeta hospitalized with cholesterol

Top criminal lawyer Cliff Ombeta has been hospitalized for what he says is an unbelievable ailment.

He disclosed on his social media that he felt sick and was admitted for suffering from a cholesterol condition that needed immediate medical attention.

The swanky lawyer, has been suffering privately as one of his pals disclosed that they had unsuccessfuly tried calling with.

Politician Silas Jakakimba said

“Pole sana Bro… quick recovery… no wonder I tried calling you 2 days ago; lines off. Praying for you”

The thing is the lawyer has been hitting the gym hard and has even showed us the success of his weight loss journey, saying on January 25th that he had shed 9kgs.


According to medical experts, cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance that’s found in all the cells in your body. Your body needs some cholesterol to make hormones, vitamin D, and substances that help you digest foods. Your body makes all the cholesterol it needs.

Mayoclinic.org says that with high cholesterol, you can develop fatty deposits in your blood vessels. Eventually, these deposits grow, making it difficult for enough blood to flow through your arteries. Sometimes, those deposits can break suddenly and form a clot that causes a heart attack or stroke.

High cholesterol can be inherited, but it’s often the result of unhealthy lifestyle choices, which make it preventable and treatable. A healthy diet, regular exercise and sometimes medication can help reduce high cholesterol.

High cholesterol has no symptoms. A blood test is the only way to detect if you have it.

Factors that can increase your risk of bad cholesterol include:

Poor diet. Eating saturated fat, found in animal products, and trans fats, found in some commercially baked cookies and crackers and microwave popcorn, can raise your cholesterol level. Foods that are high in cholesterol, such as red meat and full-fat dairy products, will also increase your cholesterol.
Obesity. Having a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or greater puts you at risk of high cholesterol.
Lack of exercise. Exercise helps boost your body’s HDL, or “good,” cholesterol while increasing the size of the particles that make up your LDL, or “bad,” cholesterol, which makes it less harmful.
Smoking. Cigarette smoking damages the walls of your blood vessels, making them more prone to accumulate fatty deposits. Smoking might also lower your level of HDL, or “good,” cholesterol.
Age. Because your body’s chemistry changes as you age, your risk of high cholesterol climbs. For instance, as you age, your liver becomes less able to remove LDL cholesterol.
Diabetes. High blood sugar contributes to higher levels of a dangerous cholesterol called very-low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) and lower HDL cholesterol. High blood sugar also damages the lining of your arteries.

Kitengela cucu’s go to the bar at 6am to drink 30bob alcohol

The Friday morning conversation with Maina and co host Mwalimu Kingangi stemmed from a confession made by a listener on Thursday February 11th, that some Kenyans are going to bars as early as 5am to ‘toa lock’ before going to work. That is if they have a job. Others waste away drinking the whole day.

Maina asked “kwani how much money do these people have to drink everyday?” To which Mwalimu laughed and said “it’s not alot of money. You just need 20bob to drink what they call munyonyi”

More testimony to collaborate what Kingangi said was disclosed.

One man said how in Kitengela it is a crisis with grandmothers going to bars early in the morning to ‘toa lock’.drunk

What’s worse is the grandma’s sometimes take the children under their care to the bars where they lock themselves up while drinking because official opening hours according to the law is 10am.

The caller was so disturbed describing how tragic the situation is

“Maina let me tell you, by 630 they come kunyolewa and they smell like something else. Kuna pombe ya 30 bob called kandaya, wacha kamnyonyi, here it is cucu’s who drink ndio waende kulima, wanatoka nyumbani na wanandamana na bwana zao na watoto na wanakuja club kukunywa, this is Kenya Maina, mnasema vijana here it’s macucu na maguka, clubs pay cops sh200bob, then kazi ya kuuza na kukunywa inaendelea”

“I am almost at 60kgs and starting to get worried” DJ Pierra discloses (exclusive)

DJ Pierra Makena is one woman who has an iron will. The entertainer is not easily bullied, that’s why she is such a strong advocate against cyberbullying and body shaming.

In a recent interview I did with her, the mother of one explained her stance in detail after the recent online harassment of statehouse spokesperson Kanze Dena.

She told me, “As I said in one of the interviews, I don’t think there is anybody that will come because I am slim and pay my rent. Whatever size I am, it is still my hustle. That’s why we started the campaign, Be You, about being comfortable with yourself.”

Even I wish I had Kanze’s position! Dj Pierra gives possible reason for body-shaming

And she said that at the moment she has gained weight again, reminding her of the period after she had given birth when she was curvier.

“At the moment I have gained weight and I miss being curvy like I used to be. When I had gained weight I thought I was the cutest thing ever. People still used to holla at me and take me out for dinner. People thought I am perfect. For me, I embrace that and that’s the energy that people recognize. Be content with who you are and embrace it, be yourself.”

I asked her if there was a nice way that people can speak about obesity issues in our culture without necessarily body-shaming? She replied, “You see obesity is health. Trust me, anyone who is obese, it’s not like they want to be there just like anybody who has cancer, it’s not like they want to have it. Nobody ever wants to be in a situation that isn’t ideal.”

Adding, “Probably what people feel and what I need to correct is that obesity is a health issue and then there is being fat, which I call being curvy. I think curvy is nothing wrong. I mean there is a country that thinks, that if you’re thin that there is a problem which is also very bad. You are even trolled. If you have a problem with someone being big, then it’s you who has a problem. If I am fat I am healthy, if you’re thin you’re healthy. We are all healthy. It’s for me to chose which I want. It’s a personal decision.”

Finally finishing with the interesting point that she was she is still not sure about what size of body she wants for herself.

“I did not work out to lose my weight. My weight just left. I am almost at 60kgs and I am starting to get worried. I am not sure I want to lose it all. There are some things even in nature you cannot change. So there is nothing that is perfect. Perfect is you and what you are.'”

TikToker uses wrong glue on her hair, and it’s been stuck for a month

When you want to lay your edges or get that slick ponytail, please note what kind of holding spray you are using.

Tessica Brown,  @im_d_ollady on TikTok, went viral after using Gorilla glue in her hair.

The TikToker shared on her platform hat she’d used the product on her hair as a holding spray to slick down her ponytail. And becasue she had run out of her usual Got2B glue, Tessica decided to use Gorilla glue instead. The gorilla glue did the work but sadly it was stuck to her head for a month.

In an Instagram post on Saturday, Tessica insinuated that she was at a medical facility, sharing a photo of the outside of the building. Another post shows her lying down in an exam room, with a medical professional applying what looks like some kind of topical ointment to her hair and scalp. She was crying in pain.

She went on Instagram to update everyone on the process and claimed she put coconut oil and tea tree oil on her hair with plastic on it. When someone commented and asked if it worked she responded, “No.”EtpyHHgWYAI3ES8

 

Their twitter account says this

“We do not recommend using our products in or on hair as they are considered permanent. If someone does use this on their hair, they can try soaking the affected area in warm, soapy water or apply rubbing alcohol to the affected area, if her hair has truly been glued down to her scalp and immobile for a month with that many aggressive attempts to wash it out, it is possible her hair is fractured at the root but we certainly hope for the best. Her marketing team reached out to us and we have offered to speak with her to share these suggestions as well as checked in on her wellbeing. Safety is our top priority.”

Jahmby Koikai comforts Chrissy Teigen ahead of endometriosis surgery

Chrissy Teigen, singer John Legends wife is in the hospital due to her battle with endometriosis. The 35-year-old cookbook author took to her social media accounts to tell fans she was getting ready to have endometriosis surgery.

She’s having the surgery during the same week that would’ve been her son Jack’s due date.

In September 2020, Chrissy Teigen revealed that she had been hospitalized due to excessive bleeding during pregnancy. Sadly, she suffered a miscarriage, and mourned the loss of what would’ve been her third child with husband, singer John Legend. Now, Teigen, 35, is at the hospital again, this time for endometriosis surgery.Chrissy-Teigen-and-John-Legend

She revealed the news of Thursday’s scheduled surgery the day before on Twitter in an emotional post, sharing that her surgery also coincided with with her original due date for Jack, her unborn baby. “My little jack would have been born this week so I’m a bit off,” she wrote. “I truly feel kicks in my belly, but it’s not phantom. I have surgery for endometriosis tomorrow…but the period feeling this month is exactly like baby kicks. Sigh.”

In another tweet later on, Teigen asked her followers for information on their experiences with endometriosis surgery. “What is the recovery-difficulty level? Like can I make soup after,” she asked.

Kenyan media personality Jahmby Koikai spoke up offering words of comfort.

She told Chrissy about her 21 surgeries and many reacted with sympathy.

Chrissy Teigen was shocked with her response and comforted her as well.

Here’w what this medical condition is:

Endometriosis, is a condition in which tissue that’s similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside the uterus and on other parts of the body where it doesn’t belong, such as the ovaries and fallopian tubes. While endometriosis is particularly common in women in their 30s and 40s, it can affect girls as young as 15.

Endometriosis can cause symptoms like painful period cramps, chronic pain, bleeding or spotting between periods, and digestive issues. Endometriosis may also cause digestive issues like diarrhea, constipation, bloating, or nausea, and in serious cases, can lead to infertility.

What to expect about curfew announcement in March – CS Kagwe

Health CS Mutahi Kagwe joined Maina Kageni in studio to answer alot of questions Kenyans have about covid, its protocols and much more.

The world will be marking one year of covid and looking back the CS reflected that

” We have been lucky as you know its been a year, and I can tell you that Kenya has been extremely luck. You know we have tested almost a million people, and lost 2k people. I was listening to BBC about international figures elsewhere,  and you can see e we have been lucky we have alot to thank God for, we have alot to thank Kenyans for also.”

One thing Kenyans want to know come March 2nd when President Uhuru is expected to address the nation on covid, CS Kagwe gave a hint of what we should expect in the Head of States announcement.

“You know by and large you know we have systematically been bringing classes back, we have pushed back the curfew each time, so its been systematic. Come December last year when people were traveling, they expected we funga the country. But what they didn’t know was that science didn’t necessitate we close the country. So we make decisions based on well thought out science and , curfew is only the measure in place, I know people want to enjoy the Kagwe specials. We’ve got to look at patterns and science and ask ourselves do we want people to intensely socialize as kids are in school. We are asking parents what would you rather have?”

Another question Kenyans want to know is if he is at all concerned that politicians are campaigning and have huge crowds at their rallies

” It’s distressing of course but I think that at the very least even if you are going to be in this sort of situation, have a mask on, at  the very least if you must go here, wear a mask you will still be caught and fined by police, wear a mask and protect yourself, in countries where people flouted rules and attended political rallies we have seen the results. We can start a third wave, it will treat you abnormaree”

He advises to always wear a mask and added about his frustration at non compliance

“We have learnt alot of over the period, we know what to do, and my appeal is even if you get caught up in a such a situation at least wear a mask, at least you have a chance even though you haven’t kept your distance. I think it’s normal to feel frustrated about non compliance. I  think it is normal to feel frustration but then you get back to understanding who are you dealing wit. Human beings will be human beings and not just in Kenya but globally, I love Kenyans whether they are behaviung well or not, they are here and here to stay,  and whatever frustration that you go through you say yes there is those not listening and not doing the right thing so inspite of all that you say we are a family and within a family there is those members misbehaving, it doesn’t mean you divorce them from the family, you just keep trying you have to keep going, you can never give up”

What about the expected vaccination campaign? Will everyone be forced?

“It’s important for Kenyans to understand not all vaccines work the same way,  we are doing sampling testing, so that by the time we do that. There will be no mandatory vaccination, because different people have different attitudes, and in a free country you don’t do that”

Kanumba’s curse the reason Wema couldn’t get a child or something more logical?

Wema Sepetu has always suspected that the reason she hasn’t had a child until now is that she was cursed by her ex-boyfriend, the late actor Steven Kanumba.

Wema Sepetu with Steven Kanumba
Wema Sepetu with Steven Kanumba

During their relationship, Wema got pregnant twice with Steven’s kids, which she always aborted something that has haunted her to this day. Last year she confessed that she believed her issues with not getting a child is because of the curse.

”I feel like Kanumba cursed me. This is because he really wanted to see me, he would call every day two weeks before his death. We were to meet but we were super busy we could not. He called like four times but we could not meet. We finally met,” Wema said.

Wema Sepetu with Steven Kanumba
Wema Sepetu with Steven Kanumba

‘He told me I owe him, he told me I will not get babies with anyone else because he was the father of my babies. He told me I owe him two babies. This is because I had terminated two of his pregnancies. Every time we used to meet he would remind me that I owe him. I saw him on Wednesday and I heard he was dead on Thursday,” she added.

Her theory was confirmed by the late Kanumba’s mom when she was a guest on her show, “Cook With Wema” a few weeks ago.

”Whatever you have been saying, my son told me the same. He even said you may look for the richest man and maybe try to get a kid but it will never be possible, unless you went back to him, you could never get a kid. He told me that unfortunately, you would have gone back to him when he is poor and broke.” Kanumba’s mum told Wema.

My question is this? Does her explanation of Kanumba’s curse being the reason she has had issues getting a child stand up to scrutiny or does science offer up other possible reasons?

First theory-The power of the mind

A study by Alia Crum, PhD, who directs the Stanford Mind and Body Lab in a 2018 Stanford News feature said, “Our minds aren’t passive observers, simply perceiving reality as it is. Our minds actually change reality.”

Her work is revealing how the mind can shape perceptions and health, as described in the piece:

People who believe doing physical work in a job counts as exercise live longer lives, independent of how much exercise they actually get. Likewise, telling people a milkshake they drank was ‘indulgent’ made them feel more full. Telling them a drink they were consuming had caffeine raised their blood pressure.

The mind also plays a critical role in the perception of pain, as research by clinical psychologist Beth Darnall, PhD, has shown. “Pain is highly responsive to each person’s psychology and mindset,’ Darnall said. Those who expect worse pain, ruminate on it and feel helpless about it – what’s called pain catastrophizing – feel more intense pain, stay longer in hospitals after surgery and often require more painkillers. On the other hand, those who shift to a positive mindset feel less pain, spend less time in hospitals and require fewer pain medications.

So, it is possible Kanumba’s curse worked, not because it inherently had power but because Wema’s mind made it so.

Second theory-Her weight contributed in her failure to successfully take a pregnancy to full-term

A few years after Kanumba’s death Wema had ballooned to an unhealthy weight medically, losing it drastically a couple of years ago.

Is it possible her weight during the period contributed to her suffering a couple of miscarriages?

According to a study by by H. Lashen, K. Fear, D.W. Sturdee, published in Human Reproduction, Volume 19, Issue 7, July 2004, Pages 1644–1646, it was observed that obesity is associated with increased risk of first trimester and recurrent miscarriage: matched case-control study.

In 2018, Wema revealed that she had suffered a miscarriage. At the time, the former model was much heavier than she is right now. Could that have been the issue in her suffering the miscarriage and not the convenient excuse of a dead man’s curse?

Getting back up and moving hasn’t been easy. Have had to make adjustments to my lifestyle. My #NewNormalMy biggest lesson is to protect your back at all costs. What happened to me, could happen and has happened to many. The lower back is vital, carries all your body weight and then some. Some key lessons to help you, even if you haven’t suffered a back injury: 1. Correct lifting technique- don’t bend over at the waist to pick up heavy weights, that includes everything, your grocery shopping, baby, heavy luggage, etc 2. Correct sitting posture.
