She wrote;

“Dear fellow woman.
I’d like you to know that you CAN create your own reality.
Listen to your inner most voice. The voice that whispers your dreams and desires. Listen to it, and let it guide you down the road of designing a life path tailor made for you, and by you.
Embrace your past. However rocky it may be. It is part of your story. But it doesnt determine your future. Self love, ability to think independently, self drive and determination will see you into that dream that appears unreachable for now.
And when you drop the ball, cut yourself some slack. Dont beat yourself into a pulp. We arent perfect. But get up, and try again.
I sincerely wish you all the very best, and may God be at the center of all your decisions. HAPPY WOMENS DAY TO YOU ALL!
With love Love. Mama Tumiso & Nyakio.”

P Square’s Rudeboy explains what breaks music groups

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”

Adding,

“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.”

Ben Pol paid “hundreds of cows” for Anerlisa’s dowry

Tanzanian singer Ben Pol and his Kenyan beau Anerlisa Muigai met early 2018 when he came to Kenya for a press conference.

The singer told Tanzania’s Clouds Media that he has already paid for dowry for the Kenyan entrepreneur.

“I have done all the traditions. The dowry is done. The ring. She is Kikuyu so I had to go and introduce myself, I left a couple of cows there. Hundreds of cows need to be presented. From there you get to be told the dowry. I have done all that and I’ve finished. What is left is the western things and law things (Church Wedding).”

He went on to reveal that he never knew that Anerlisa was from a rich background before falling in love

“I saw a beautiful woman. I didn’t know what she was into. She had a good smile and I started conversing with her. It didn’t matter who she was. I came to know her business later on and her status and that she is a famous person. She knew me but I didn’t know her. If I knew her status, maybe I’d be fake, I’d pretend”

Pol they fell in love so naturally that they couldn’t stay without communicating with each other “She was hugable, Kissable”

Gospel singer Martha Mwaipaja confirms split with hubby

Tanzanian gospel artiste Martha Mwaipaja has confirmed that she and her husband separated over what she termed betrayal. She said this in an interview with fellow singer Christina Shusho.

“I separated with my husband like two years ago. I am not there to try, I have already decided and people cannot be together if they don’t understand each other,” she said.

“Many married people nowadays are just living and not understanding each other. You will later find yourself giving birth to kids who don’t have grace.”

Asked whether it’s separation or complete divorce, she said, “I don’t have the time to just separate. We have lived together for so many years, and if you see that you are going to fall into a pit, there is no time to give each other time. That’s where you decide. I have done my decision. “

The two were blessed with a child, whom Mwaipaja says she has been taking care of since they parted ways

“I was the one who got myself in and also got myself out. Anyone who knows that person will clap for me, but whoever doesn’t know him will point fingers at me,” she said.

“I could have died. I thank God for protecting me from death and betrayal. He was a man of God and the churches he had have all been closed. If it’s not God, people might have buried me by now.”

The “Naiona Kesho” and “Nifundishe Kunyamaza” hitmaker says the making of these two songs was when she was at her lowest.

“A time reaches when you wish you could die or get lost, but when those words came to me, I was filled with Grace. If you see me crying, know that God has fought for me,” she said.

 “A message to women, if you see your knowledge has come to an end, don’t force it, you are calling death and don’t get out and go away from God. I encourage people through my songs and I know what pain is.

“Marriage should be respected by all, but the husband or wife should not make you wrong God.”

English Premier League

There is set to be a change at the helm. With another healthy points advantage, Liverpool are on course to finally end what is now a 30-year wait for the title. 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.

Liverpool have been unbeatable

Australian Open

The 2020 Australian Open will take place at Melbourne Park, from 20 January to 2 February 2020. It will be the 108th edition of the Australian Open, the 52nd in the Open Era, and the first Grand Slam of the year

 

FINA Swimming World Cup

This makes a return in 2020 and will be held in Abu Dhabi, UAE. The FINA World Swimming Championships (25m)or “Short Course Worlds” as they are sometimes known is an international swimming competition. It is swum in a short course (25m) pool and has been held in the years when FINA has not held its main World Championships (currently this means in even years).[5][6]

 

IAAF Diamond League

Interesting to watch as eight disciplines have been axed from the core programme of the 2020 Diamond League season, reducing the number to 24 – 12 each for men and women – to cater to a 90-minute broadcast window, according to the IAAF.

The 2020 calendar consists of 14 meetings and one final in Zurich.

 

Formula 1

The new year is upon us and the countdown to the 2020 F1 season is underway. Out of the 20 drivers in the field, 18 will start the new season in the same seats they ended last year. The exception are at Renault and Williams. Ferrari is set to give a strong fight while it also feels like McLaren are finally back(ish).

The 2020 F1 calendar is the longest in the history of the sport, with a record-breaking 22 races. This is despite Germany’s round of the championship dropping off the calendar. 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.

 

Moto GP

The world stood still for a moment as Marc Marquez sealed his sixth MotoGP world title in Thailand in a heart-pounding final corner duel with Fabio Quartararo. He now predicts an even closer title battle this year as the champion sees Quartararo becoming a major threat.

Meanwhile, the Repsol Honda MotoGP team will be a family affair next season after the Japanese manufacturer announced on Monday that Alex Marquez was joining as teammate to older brother Marc.

The 2020 MotoGP season starts in Qatar on 8 March.

African Nations Championship 2020

Ethiopia were formerly awarded as host, but the EFF admitted it was not ready to host this competition. Unlike the African Cup of Nations, the competing national teams must be composed of players playing in their domestic league.

How slay queen’s lure sponsors into funding their luxurious lifestyles

More and more young women are using sugar daddies (or, as they’re more commonly known, ‘sponsors’) to fund a lifestyle worth posting on social media.

“Sponsor” relationships seem to have become both more common and more visible. What once was hidden is now out in the open, on campuses, in bars and all over Instagram.

We have arrived at a point where having a “sponsor” or a “blesser” — the terms millennials usually apply to their benefactors — has for many young people become an accepted and even glamorous lifestyle choice.

Through the stories of three women, the Star explores the social forces driving this trend.

CAREER AMBITIONS

“Right now, the a** is the new brain and this is what you use to get what you want,” says single mother Grace Njeri*, 25, who has a regular sponsor.

Njeri says she is actively seeking a more lucrative relationship with a man who will invest in her career as a singer.

“I am poor, often living hand-to-mouth, dancing for cash in a nightclub, and struggling to put my daughter through school. But I’m determined to feed and educate my child. I want to become rich and famous through modelling and music,” she says.

She says the economy makes it so much harder for a smaller person to make ends meet.

“Hard work won’t get you anywhere. You have to get a sponsor, rob a bank or win a tender,” she says.

SOCIALITE INFLUENCE

“If I look hot, I look good. There has got to be some rich guy who will pay good money to possess me,” says Jane, 20.

Jane, an undergraduate who readily admits to having two sponsors, sees nothing shameful in such relationships — they are just part of the everyday hustle it takes to survive in Nairobi, she says.

She is inspired by Kenya’s celebrity “socialites”, women who have transformed s3x appeal into wealth, becoming stars of social media.

In the past, some of Kenya’s socialites have styled themselves as #SlayQueens and have been quite upfront about the financial benefits that have come from dating tycoons.

Having made it to the top, though, they often begin to cultivate a different image, presenting themselves as independent, self-made businesswomen and encouraging girls to work hard and stay in school.

Jane, however, says she admires socialite Vera Sidika, who went from dancing in music videos on to the set of the Nairobi Diaries, and from there launched a business career based on her fame and physique.

FINANCIAL GAIN

“I used the remaining Sh100 I had in my wallet and took a bus to the city centre, to look for the first man who would pay to have sex with me,” Machakos University student Mary Wambui*, 19, confesses.

Most of the times she sat in her tiny room in shared quarters in Kitengela, feeling broke, hungry and desperate.

But that day, Wambui went back to Kitengela with Sh1,000 to feed herself for the rest of the month.

She says she loved that life and instead of sleeping with random guys for money, she opted for a sponsor.

“Six years ago, I met a married man nearly 40 years my senior. At first, I received just groceries. Then it was trips to the salon,” she says.

“Two years into our relationship, the man moved me into a new apartment because he wanted me to be more comfortable.”

Another two years down the line, the sponsor gave her a plot of land in Nyeri county as a show of commitment.

In exchange, he gets to sleep with Wambui whenever he feels like it.

“I am young and beautiful, so why not use my youthfulness to my benefit.”

“After all, what is wrong about sex, anyway?” asks Wambui . “People just make it sound wrong. But sometimes, it ain’t wrong at all.”

But as most of those dependent on sugar relationships are female, they have dominated the public debate. There are concerns about the morality of their lifestyle, but also about its consequences for their health.

Kerubo*, 27, from Kisii, says she has control of her relationship with her sugar daddy, Alfred. But when I ask her about safe sex, this illusion quickly evaporates.

Both Alfred and her other sponsor, James, prefer not to use condoms, she says. In fact, she has had unprotected sex with multiple sugar daddies, who then have sex with other women, as well as with their wives, exposing all of these partners to the risk of sexually transmitted diseases.

Kerubo, the aspiring singer struggling to put food on the table, has a slightly different perspective. To her, the similarities with sex work are more apparent.

“I prefer the sponsor thing, rather than standing on the street,” she says. “Because you have that one person who is supporting you… you don’t need to sleep with so many men.”

The names have been changed for protection purposes.

“My body is my business – and it is a money maker,” she said back in 2014, when discussing her controversial skin-lightening procedures.

Nowadays, Vera is keen to promote herself as an entrepreneur, and runs a successful brand of “detox” herbal infusions called Veetox Tea.
Equally famous is model and socialite Huddah Monroe, who also rose to fame on reality TV — in her case, Big Brother Africa, in 2013. She now runs a well-established line of cosmetics.

“If you have to expose your body, make money out of it,” she was reported as saying, referring to the semi-nude images she shows off to her 1.6 million Instagram followers.

Socialite Bridget Achieng’ raised and born in Kibera now a business woman
Socialite Bridget Achieng is a woman from the sprawling Nairobi slum of Kibera. She worked as a domestic servant (house girl) but gained a social media following on the back of a sexy photoshoot, and then found her way into the cast of Nairobi Diaries.

Her message to aspiring socialites, though, is that nothing is free. “You want a million bucks, you will do something that is worth a million bucks,” she said.

‘He forced me to eat his poop,’ Ex slay queen narrates horrible experience with sponsors
MEN ALSO VICTIMS

George Meiu, who studies transactional relationships between Samburu men and older European women, has described how their youth and good looks have become valuable commodities in Kenya’s beach resorts.

Thanks to a set of “African warrior” stereotypes and myths about tribal sexual prowess, the Samburu and others like them are particularly appealing to local and foreign sugar mummies.

Some Samburu villages, he says, claim they have been unable to defend themselves against cattle raids from neighbouring tribes because so many young men have migrated to the coast to become beach boys.

“A beach boy is someone who gets up in the morning, smokes a joint, lies under a coconut tree, waiting for bikini-clad white woman to pass by and run after them,” Meui says.

Bae, sponsor or fossil! How to identify the kind of man you are dating

Medical researcher Joyce Wundani says girls and young women between the ages of 15 and 24 have consistently been at higher risk of HIV infection than any other section of the population in sub-Saharan Africa.

Sugar relationships, she says, are contributing to these risks because the women who engage in them do not have the power to insist on the use of condoms. “With sex work, men are more likely to use condoms because it’s more explicit than this is selling and buying.”

Ali Kiba denies break up song was about wife, Amina Khalef

Ali Kiba released a breakup song titled “Mshumaa” where he spoke about a woman whom he married, asking her to come back home.

He goes on to remind her of the promises she said to him on their wedding day.

He says even if he dies, he believes that he and the love of his life, will see each other again.

 “Nakumiss. Tutaonana, hata mungu akipanga, nikufe kesho, tutaonana tena. Ifike kesho, waniweke kwa mchanga, nikufe kesho.” (I miss you, we will see each other. If god plans that I die tomorrow, I believe, we will see each other.)

Adding; “Labda nikukumbushe, nilipokuvisha pete, ulisema huniachi mpaka nife. Uwepo wako ndio ulikua wangu uzima.”

(Let me remind you, when I put a ring on you, you said you’ll never leave me until I die. Your presence was my being.)

After the release of the song that is currently on three million views on Youtube, fans believed that Kiba was singing for his wife, Amina Khalef because, at the time, they had marital issues.

He denied the claims in an interview with Millard Ayo, “My wife was a lover of this song even before I married her because I did the song way before I married her.”

Adding “Right now, we are okay but she is there (In Kenya) because she is working. There are a lot of difficulties in marriage sometimes you exchange words and sometimes you laugh and things go well. They are normal things in marriage.”

Music producer accuses Ali Kiba of not paying for song

Previously, Kiba had confessed that he had issues with the wife, hence going back to Mombasa where she was born.
