The singer went on to add that acknowledging his toxic traits is something to be remembered for ;

“I wanna be remembered for my kindness, for showing up, for giving second chances, for acknowledging my own toxic traits & for loving selflessly. if that ain’t it then i failed horribly. remember to extend grace because we’re all just walking each other home”

Maina and King’ang’i: Do you date for love or survival?

The Classic 105’s morning conversation was about women who just can’t be with a man who has no money.  But what does love have to do with it?

A listener tweeted;

“There are those men we date for love and those we date for money and all of them know their place.”

Alice who has been in marriage for years called to give her experinece

“I got married for love some eight years ago and the ninth year it didn’t work out. If I’m going to get married agin, I’ll go for money because their shenanigans are the same. I’ve learnt a great lesson. Lets deal with their BS when someone is taking care of me properly.”

Adding;

“It is the same way gentlemen want to look for some nice chest and nice behind, lets look for someone with money”

I have a man at home, in the office and that ex you can never forget – Woman tells Maina

Betty, a caller, said “Without money, there’s no future, there’s no love. I’d rather date an old guy with money than a young one with nothing and I’ll make my future bright.”

A gentleman called to give his experience of how his lovelife changed when he started getting money

“There’s this lady I was dating and we sired a child, at the time I was a watchman. She didn’t even want me to see the child, when I got a better job, I was taken to the children’s court.

We solved out of the court, she got remorseful and apologized, We are now together and I got a second child with her.”

Another gentleman said

“Even marriage is a transactions that’s why you are given a license.  We know women are with us because of money but we turn a blind eye. It is a simple transaction. She is there cause of your money.”

Ellen DeGeneres announces end of talk show

Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres has announced that she is ending her show in 2022. Her show is in its 18th Season and will wrap up after the 19th season.

Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, DeGeneres said she needed something to challenge her.

“When you’re a creative person, you constantly need to be challenged and, as great as this show is, and as fun as it is, it’s just not a challenge anymore,”
This comes just months after she was diagnosed with covid-19 in December last year.

At the time, she spoke about how some of her colleagues treated her while she was infected with the virus., “I was getting ready to tape the show that you were going to be here for, and I was in hair and makeup, getting my face powdered and my extensions put in and then my assistant, Craig, walks in and says, ‘You’ve tested positive for COVID. And then everyone around me ran away. It’s funny, people just really get scared. Some have not come back since.”

Adding;

“I had to quarantine, and Portia made me sleep in a different room on a different bed because she wanted the race car bed all to herself,”

Early this year,there were accusations by employees that the show is a toxic working environment.

In a statement, the daytime TV show host said;

“On day one of our show, I told everyone in our first meeting that ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ would be a place of happiness — no one would ever raise their voice, and everyone would be treated with respect. Obviously, something changed, and I am disappointed to learn that this has not been the case and for that, I am sorry. Anyone who knows me knows it’s the opposite of what I believe and what I hoped for our show.”

Some people I knew left me permanently when they found out I had Covid – Ellen DeGeneres

‘I’m not a suspect but a witness,’ says rapper AKA in defense to fiancee’s death

South African rapper AKA real name Kiernan Jarryd Forbes says he is a witness to the case of his fiancee’s death and not a suspect.

The South African rapper is seeking psychological and spiritual counseling weeks after the death of his fiancée Anele Tembe.

In a statement, the rapper said he was and is still in love with the late.

“WHAT I WILL SAY AS MY TRUTH; I WAS AND STILL AM MADLY IN LOVE WITH A GIRL, CARRYING WHATEVER PAST TRAUMAS SHE FACED BEFORE I MET HER.
I OWN UP TO MY PAST AND CURRENT TRAUMAS, AND THUS I HAVE SUBMITTED MYSELF TO PSYCHOLOGICAL AND SPIRITUAL COUNSELLING FOR MY OWN BENEFIT AND GROWTH.
I HOPE EVERYONE AFFECTED BY ANELE’S TRAUMATIC PASSING DOES THE SAME FOR THEMSELVES, INDIVIDUALY AND COLLECTIVELY, SO THAT WE MAY ALL AFFORD HER SPIRIT THE REST SHE DESERVES AND COME TO TERMS WITH THE CHOICE SHE MADE THAT FATEFUL MORNING OF 11 APRIL.”

Tembe died after falling from the 10th floor of a hotel in Cape Town. The rapper went on to say that his relationship with Anele had its ups and downs just like any other.

“IT IS A SAD DAY WHEN I FIND MYSELF HAVING TO SPEAK TO THE NATURE OF MY RELATIONSHIP WITH ANELE. WHAT MAKES IT EVEN SADDER IS THE KNOWLEDGE THAT SOME OF THE PEOPLE, SHE AND I LOVED & ENTRUSTED WITH OUR DEEPEST TROUBLES, ARE NOW USING THOSE AS WEAPONS TO SET A NEGATIVE NARRATIVE ON MY CHARACTER.”

“I AM A PASSIONATE AND EMOTIONAL PERSON. WHAT I WILL NOT DO AND STAND FOR IS WATCHING PEOPLE ATTEMPT TO DISPARAGE MY NAME AND IMPORTANTLY, ANELE’S CHARACTER TO SUIT A NARRATIVE WE BOTH NEVER SIGNED UP FOR.
WE ENJOYED A BEAUTIFUL, YET CHALLENGING RELATIONSHIP THAT AT TIMES WAS TUMULTUOUS, LIKE ALL RELATIONSHIPS. MADE WORSE BY THE PRESSURES OF BEING IN THE PUBLIC EYE, WHICH WE TOO PLAYED UP TO.”

I don’t have a wife, I have a dem! Njugush corrects Amina Abdi about Wakavinye

He added that he knew the people who were giving out wrong information to the public.

“AS NUMB AS I WAS AT ANELE’S FUNERAL, I TOOK IN EVERY WORD IMPARTED, THE DIRECT ONES AND ALL THOSE FILLED WITH INNUENDOS. I WILL NOT BE A PART OF SPEAKING ON OR EXPOSING OUR TROUBLES AS A COUPLE, TO DEFEND MYSELF FROM ONE-SIDED VIEWS THAT ARE PORTRAYED OUT OF THEIR FULL CONTEXT EVERY STORY HAS TWO SIDES AND SO DOES EVERY VIDEO, IMAGE AND MESSAGE…”

“I AM FULLY AWARE OF WHO THE ‘SOURCES’ ENGAGING MEDIA ARE AND WHAT THEIR INTENTION IS, WHICH IS TO INFLUENCE THE SAPS INQUEST – WHICH THE INVESTIGATING OFFICER HAS STATED NUMEROUS TIMES TO MY LEGAL TEAM AND TO THEM, THAT I KIERNAN JARRYD FORBES, HAVE NOT BEEN NAMED TO BE A SUSPECT, BUT HAVE BEEN NOTHING BUT A COOPERATING WITNESS.”

His statement comes days after a video went viral showing an altercation between the rapper and the late Anele.

Four weeks ago, a funeral service was done and family and friends paid tribute to the 22-year-old before her burial.

The Do’s and Don’t’s of drinking and serving wine

Many women love to unwind by having a glass of wine.

But before you grab that glass and sip, do you know the etiquette for serving and drinking wine?

Fun facts to know about wine:

  1. Wine is made in virtually every country in the world.
  2. Intense fear or hatred of wine is called “oenophobia.”
  3. All wine is stored at the same temperature, regardless of its color. But reds and whites are consumed at completely different temperatures.
  4. One glass of wine consists of juice from one cluster of grapes.
  5. Red wine can only be made from blue or purple-skinned grapes. White wine can also come from these darker grapes, but only if the juice is separated from the skins.
  6. Rosé, which finds itself somewhere in between red and white, is most often crafted by allowing the juice limited and controlled contact with dark grape skins.

So when handling wine these are some of the Dos and Don’ts:

DOS

  • Consider decanting your wine – The real benefit of the process is that it gently exposes the wine to air, softening its acids and tannin, effectively smoothing out all the sharp edges and wrinkles. It can be particularly helpful in taming the funk that comes off so-called reductive wines.
  • Smell your glass before pouring in your wine – You wouldn’t want the wine fragrance coming in your way over a soapy glass or dust-covered glass. One of the best, most enjoyable parts about drinking wine is appreciating its fragrance.
  • Invest in a good opener – You wouldn’t want chunks of the cork going into your wine bottle.

DON’T’S

  • Serve your red wine too warm – Heat will exacerbate the alcohol content of a wine, making your nose hairs burn when you go in for a big whiff. Conventional wisdom generally dictates that light-to medium-bodied reds should be served around 13–15C, while fuller-bodied reds are better enjoyed in the 15–20C range.
  • Serve your white wines too cold – Why? Because you’ll taste less. Light-bodied, less-aromatic wines should be served colder, in the 4–8C range, whereas more expressive and fuller-bodied whites should ideally be served in the slightly-warmer-but-still technically cold range of 8–10C.
  • Overpour your glass: Seriously, no matter how rough the day. If the glass is too full and you try to do your best professional swirl-and-sniff, chances are you’re going to end up making a mess.
  • Let past-its-prime, open wine go to waste: See if you can’t find a recipe for a stew, or soup or sauce where it can be given a respectable second-chance at life.

Chunga Omar Lali!!! Lupita Nyong’o warned as she vacations in Lamu

Lupita Nyong’o dominated the headlines earlier this year after British supermodel Naomi Campbell was given the gig to promote Kenyan tourism to international travelers.

A serious debate ensued with many asking Najib Balala why our own famous export hadn’t been used to promote magical Kenya?

The cabinet secretary responded by saying that getting to the Oscar-winning actress had been a tall task, otherwise the government would have offered her the job.

Miss Nyong’o on her part denied that she had ever been called by the government. While we might never know the truth between the two, one thing we can see is that it has changed Lupita’s traveling habits.

Lupita who usually keeps a very very low profile when she comes to Kenya has decided to announce to every Kenyan that she is at the coast.

Yep, the thespian who has nary made a public visit to the country the last 8 years decided to reveal her whereabouts, something she hasn’t done since her celebrity status exploded.

Mmm…I wonder why? But I digress. The reason I write this story is how Kenyans have decided to turn her triumphant return promoting her lovely Kenya to speak about Omar Lali-the old man implicated in the death of Keroche heiress, Tecra Muigai.

Check out some of the hilarious comments below:

But Naomi Campell ashaapita na kazi yako you can look for Omar Lali it’s the only gift we can give you now.

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.

Kim Kardashian files for divorce from her husband Kanye West

Celebrity couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are headed for a divorce.

Reports say Kardashian has filed for divorce from her husband.

It follows a past ‘rocky’ year for the soon-to-be ex-love birds.

West launched a bid to be US President while also struggling with bipolar disorder.

After he made a series of erratic statements, Kardashian took to social media to ask for the public’s understanding.

“We as a society talk about giving grace to the issue of mental health as a whole, however, we should also give it to the individuals who are living with it in times when they need it the most.”
“I kindly ask that the media and public give us the compassion and empathy that is needed so that we can get through this.”

‘The chapters are finally coming together,’ Michelle Ntalami pays tribute to late dad

Marini CEO’s Michelle Ntalami has paid tribute to her late dad, Edward Ntalami, who passed away in 2014 after a long battle with cancer.

Pouring her heart out in a lengthy Instagram post, Michelle described her father as a meticulous scholar.

“I wore my dad’s lapel pin from the University of Sheffield to work. A pin he got 40 years ago during his Masters. My dad was so scholarly, intelligent and extremely meticulous about his work. The biggest perfectionist I’ve ever seen, and yes, more than me! He would lock up my siblings and me in the study room and force us to read one storybook per week. Then come home in the evening and ask us about it. I’d usually read only the first and last page of a chapter, (coz obviously I was too busy stealing his VCRs to watch the Octagon by Chuck Norris) then make everything in between up. But he’d always, always bust me.”

She stated that she often finds herself buried in books a powerful tool that her father instilled in her.

“Three decades on, here I am locking myself up in my office, writing my life story. No making things up, no skipping the chapters, no faking the story. I now apply all the lessons he instilled in me every day. Education, hard-work, discipline, etiquette, honesty, eloquence, excellence in everything you do, having high standards, taking no-nonsense, bossing up and dressing sharp. As I wear his lapel pin, I feel so proud knowing I continue his legacy in the way he would have wanted me to. I smile up at him because I realize of all the things my Dad ever did for me, ensuring that I remain a woman of integrity, high value and good moral standing is by far the most priceless gift he ever gave me…especially in today’s world. Thank you, Papa. The chapters are finally coming together.”

My WCW! Actress Gabrielle Union praises Kenyan queen Achieng Agutu

Achieng Agutu has been making waves on the world stage as a confident queen since popular Daytime Tv host Ellen Degeneres interviewed her.

Miss Agutu became a household name after she was reunited with her family whom she claimed she had not seen in two years and was given KSh 5 million by a touched Ellen.

Her emotional story of working multiple jobs to make ends meet, her parents selling land and taking loans to take her to school touched the audience in the Ellen show but Kenyans back home were skeptical.

Meet Achieng Agutu, a Kenyan girl who holds 6 jobs in the US

But despite what some Kenyans might think Achieng’s positivity and sparkle has endeared her to none other than Being Mary Jane actress Gabrielle Union.

The beautiful mother of one who is married to former NBA star, Dwayne Wade dedicated a substantial text to the ever hyped up dark skin queen and it could bring tears to the driest of eyes.

“Today’s #WCW is known as the “Confidence Queen,” and yall I am here for it: @Noordinarynoire. Her Instagram is rich with content that empowers, heals and boosts your mood. She is the internet’s personal HYPE woman, and we could also use a cheerleader right now. On top of her words of encouragement, she serves LOOKS; rocking patterns and colors that just exude joy. Do yourself a favor today, and see what she has got going on. Let us lift her up in the light of goodness and hold her there.”

As of now, Achieng doesn’t seem to be aware of the shout-out but I am sure that when she does, hevean and hell will hear about it!

‘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.

I am done playing straight characters-Prison Break star Wentworth Miller quits series

Prison Break star Wentworth Miller has officially quit the series. Yes. The actor whose role as the tattooed convict on the hit show became the talk of town when the show first aired in the mid-2000’s.

The actor, who played Michael Scofield in the hit Fox series, said he won’t be returning in any future revival of the series as he is done playing straight characters.

So many messages of support and encouragement… Thank you. I’m taking it in. I only hope – thru my acting/writing, what I share online – that energy is returned in some way/shape/form… I didn’t anticipate my previous post going so far, so fast, and I feel motivated to offer a follow-up… Am I saying gay actors (gay men, specifically) should only play gay parts? No. I was speaking for myself. At this point in my life/career, it’s what feels interesting, inspiring, right. That said, do I want to see more gay parts played by gay actors? Yes. It makes a difference performance-wise (IMO), but also bec straight actors playing “gay” centers straightness. Doesn’t matter if they’re “acting” – I still know what I’m looking at. (Does this dynamic exist on a spectrum with porn genres like “gay-for-pay” and the prioritization/fetishization of straight/”masc” men over gay/”femme” men within the gay community? Conversations for another time.) PB was challenging, onscreen and off. Did anyone involved tell me, explicitly, to bury my gayness for the show’s sake? No. Had I already received enough messaging from Hollywood/the larger culture/the schools I went to/my family of origin such things go unspoken lest you risk punishment, losing rights/privileges? Yes. One of the ironies of the closet is I became my own jailer. “Prison Break” indeed. (I’ve said it before – the universe has a sense of humor.) I haven’t spent my career on “Pose” and “Looking.” Didn’t work out that way. What I’ve done is a lot of action-adventure, and that’s come with a diverse fanbase. Within that is a homophobic subgroup and their shit’s been washing up on my shore. They dig “Michael” but have a problem with me. It’s got that “Love the Sinner, Hate the Sin” energy. They’d prefer I keep quiet, dial it down. Don’t Remind Them. No. My gayness was largely erased (by me, for starters) in the first decades of my career. It is my want, now, to center it in a way that cannot be missed by myself or anyone else. – W.M. 🏳️‍🌈

His co-stars supported his decision with Dominic Purcell, who played Miller’s on-screen brother, Lincoln Burrows, writing, “It was fun mate. What a ride it was. Fully support and understand your reasoning. Glad you have made this decision for you health and your truth.”

Sarah Wayne Calies, the actress who played his on-screen wife, Sara Tancredi, said: “With gratitude for all the work we did together, & with deep love, I’m voicing my support for that choice.”
