Well, since then, they have been on and off until today when Fayvanny explained to a fan who asked if she was dumped by the Teamo hitmaker.
“Pole shoga mume mimi ndo haniachi dada mimi ndo mwanamke wake wa maisha 😹 kiufupi kwangu ndo kashafika 😹 na desturi ya watanga ni kwamba hatuja funzwa kuwaacha waume bali tumefunzwa kuwanyenyekea kwa nyama tamu ya ulimi 😹 so kuachwa mm bado sana 👌 chukua kiti ukae 😹😹
Well, Diamond is single after he broke up with his Kenyan Bae Tanasha Donna early this year and so anything could happen.
He has since not been taking care of his baby with Tanasha.
Speaking to comedian Jalang’o, Tanasha said she has been doing it all by herself.
“What do you mean supporting financially? I have been doing it all on my own, to be honest,” Tanasha responded, when asked if Diamond has been providing any financial support.
“I will be 100 per cent honest with you. I am very real and I am not going to say something that is not the case. With all the respect I have for him and I don’t have any bad blood with him. No, he is not supporting (me), and I am doing it on my own,” she said.
She explained that she isn’t complaining about it since she is doing just fine, raising her eight-month-old son. “I don’t need his support. There is nothing that boy lacks in his life. He is fine, that’s what matters,” she said.
Fans reacted to the post with many suggesting that he is serious with his words;
Sailor’s new hit with Majirani ‘Chepukati’ has been pulled down on Youtube.
The song was trending at number 12 with more than 100,000 views on YouTube.
Speaking exclusively to Classic 105, Majirani, says he has no idea what happened, as he had already paid for the collabo.
“Manze it’s crazy ’cause we did not approach Sailors directly. So we have a contract with K-letta and Mwalimu Rachel and we paid them a lot of money. All of that is because we wanted them to appear on the song,”he said.
Majirani says K-letta told him that Black Market Records (BMR) which the group is under, was just supposed to distribute Sailors music and nothing more.
But a few days later they received a text saying they worked with their artists without BMR’s consent.
“In short it is an in-house conflict and there is something they are not telling us.”Majirani said.
Comedian Terence Creative first born daughter turned 12 years yesterday.
Well, for beginners, Terence is a father of three daughters.
Two are with his first baby mama Njambi Waneta while the third born Milla lives with him together with his wife, Milly Chebby.
The father of three described his daughter as a genius and wished her more Grace as she grows old.
Taking it to his Instagram page, Terene shared a series of his daughter and captioned;
“To my dear beautiful,genius, blessed daughter, as you turn another year old,may God continue blessing you and covering you under His shadow, I wish you nothing but more Grace,wisdom,health and wealth.”
“May you grow to lead and have a Midas touch, may everything you touch blossom and prosper. May you grow to be a role model to your sisters, I miss you and love you soo soo much than you can ever imagine, God bless you Mwihaki,sinakupenda aki.”
David Mathenge alias Nameless and his wife Wahu marked 15 years in marriage this month.
The couple took to their social media to celebrate the journey.
They are raising two daughters Tumiso and Nyakio.
“Today it’s 15 years since we said I DO (and 22 years since nilikuingisha box 😋)… you still THE ONE ! Happy anniversary babe! Cheers to us, cheers to our journey, cheers to the ups the downs , joys and sorrows, the wins and losses, yooo!! we definitely grown 🤔😊! The journey continues💪🏾!! and I still got your back💯.”
“September 10th 2005…. I got on a boat… Sailed across a lake 😝😝 and said “I do” to my campus sweetheart. We’ve had our ups and downs, our fights and makeups, our happiness and sadness, our wins and our losses… And 15 years later….. You’re still the one!! Happy 15th anniversary to us!!! Here’s to forever! 🥂🥂. I’m excited about the future ! I love you always @namelesskenya & May God continue to bless our family.”
Speaking to Classic 105, Nameless says they had planned to do a celebration as they renew their marriage vows which did not happen.
“You know when we got married, there are certain things we expected but for the years we have been together, so much have changed. We wanted to have a vow renewal but unfortunately, we didn’t. My dad was in hospital plus the corona pandemic so we just did a photoshoot and chilled in Nairobi,” he said.
“We will plan for it later because we need to inspire more couples that marriage works. All you need is to marry your friend and learn to understand each other.”
He’s evasive about marriage: Celebrities like Diamond Platnumz has stalled several times in marrying two of his baby mam’s after publicly declaring his intention to. He never put a date to it. If he is evasive about the future and doesn’t talk or want to chat about getting married, he is not ready to take the plunge.
He’s selfish: You could date for years but not really know if they’re wasting your time if the end game for the two of you is not clear – marriage- and the the details surrounding this event.
Indecisiveness: if he can’t make a decision perhaps he isn’t ready for marriage because he procrastinates way too much about personal relationships. His lack of decision making is a major sign siz.
He fears marriage: Give up his freedom? NEVER! He is downright fearful. I have heard many men say they live in a constant state of fear over losing their freedom and aren’t motivated to walk down the aisle.
He is unlike Otile and the Tanzanian doctor. He is a dark skin fella, from the snippets offered to us.
He is an exercise freak. Vera spoke of how he makes her run and won’t budge. Well she also doesn’t mind because she also admitted to Jalang’o that she has added that happy weight women put on when they are in love. Exercising as a couple is good and we are here for it.
The thespian penned down a message of appreciation to comedian Timothy Kimani aka Njugush for teaching her how to hustle on social media.
Kate used social media platform Twitter to thank Njugush for the impact he had had on her career, saying, “An appreciation tweet for @BlessedNjugush, I am literally living off social media gigs because you held my hand, you showed me the ropes .you are appreciated litu bro.”
Others asked what had happened between her and her long-time boyfriend, DJ Sunman. Some others also stated it was UnAfrican for Anita to be a proponent of LGBTQ rights.
Anyway responding to the criticism through her Instagram account; the 30-year-old kept cool and responded with the simple and classy, “Niko tu.”
In the past Anita had said that she does not see herself getting married, she also said she would only get kids when she was ready. “Whatever greatness lies ahead! I love you to bits and pieces! happy 30th @sunmannagram.”
Just months ago (June 2020) she had taken to her social media to celebrate her boyfriend DJ Sunman.
Yes, you read that right. Akothee, who is also an entrepreneur, made a bold confession on death, stating that she has informed her family that when her day of resting comes, she should be buried on the same day.
She made her statement ahead of the burial of her sister-in-law (Sarah Anne Atieno Kokeyo) who passed away on August 20, 2020 while in Kampala, Uganda. The funeral arrangements and the ensuing issues have made her note that she doesn’t want to go through that herself.
The musician narrated that nobody had checked up on her and find out if she needs help or even comfort her, and her family during this difficult time.
“The air is thin up here. Always attending my family’s funerals alone. With my security, PA and photographers. I am panicking, I have no one to comfort me, no one is even asking if I need anything or any help. But when people have funerals, the number of phone calls I get only God Knows. I am learning to be selfish too, I wish I could, be blessed,” wrote Akothee.
She went on to say, “Some people are so insensitive still calling me to send them contributions for their own funerals, no one has called to ask if they could accompany me to the burial or even when the burial is 🙏 wee. This time round I am too weak to attend & witness my brother lower his wife to rest, sijui niweke kichwa wapi ? 🙆🙆🙆💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔.”
She finished off by stating that she would like to be buried the day she died. “For me, if I die today, I have asked my family to bury me the same day 😭, the trauma my mother has gone through for a month waiting for nyabondo because of the COVID situation, I can’t stand seeing her making trips to the funeral home, May The Lord comfort everyone who lost their loved ones during this hard times 🙏🙏🙏, good morning, my love 🙏.”
Celebrated media personality and sports journalist Carol Radull revealed a well-hidden nugget about her life this week. Carol disclosed that she had been in bed last year on her birthday after undergoing surgery, a few days before.
Speaking today on her Instagram page, the premier sports journalist remembered that the birthday was still very special because she was surrounded by her family members.
“Last year I spent my birthday in bed. I had had surgery on my sinuses on the 12th of September and I was still in recovery. But I was surrounded by family and so much love. So it was still pretty special. Still, I promised myself I would have a huge bash this year and really let loose. But God had other plans,” read part of her post on Instagram.
She then thanked fans and friends for spreading the word about her special birthday gift request, which was that people contribute towards a support fund for former Kenyan Boxer Conjestina Achieng.
“Things are different this year but I feel so blessed to be alive and healthy. If we all learned something this year; it’s that our health is not something we can take for granted. So I am grateful to God that I get to see this day and that I am healthy and strong.”
In response to the backlash, she told Massawe Jappani that she wouldn’t apologise for hosting members of the LGBTQ community on her cooking show, ‘The overdressed cook’.
Anita said she that she respected people’s opinions but that she will not apologise. At the time of the interview, Anita said that she wasn’t willing to comment on whether she was a member of the community. “When I’m ready to share, I will.”
But it seems like that time has come and her announcement has made it loud and clear. The former the Trend singer is done hiding and is ready to leave her truth with the public knowing (and good for her!).
My question is whether her decision helps the cause of the movement in Kenya. I don’t think it will and for a simple reason, Kenyans have a lot of issues that take priority than the s3xual orientation of an individual.
Things like food, corruption, Covid-19 are more pressing matters than LQBTQ issues. If one looks at countries that have allowed LGBTQ rights, they all have one thing in common, they are all very advanced-2nd world and above status.
According to Maslow’s hierarchy needs (food, shelter, clothing) are at the bottom, and then the wants come at the top. How are Kenyans going to engage on the LGBTQ topic when they are still struggling to pay rent or take their kids to school.
Even our own president sees it as a non-issue. Check out his response below on the issue;
What her coming out will do in the long-term is that it will give her a boost in publicity and not much else. But what do I know?
“At the same time, you are two different individuals with a different set of issues that you are bringing into the marriage. Lesson number one is that everyone has some work to do dealing with their own baggage. Everyone plays the blame game in marriage but married people should take the initiative to work on themselves to become a better partner.”
She said that self-work is important for a marriage to grow. “Your marriage will only grow as much as each partner can grow individually. If one person is growing and another isn’t then the growth of the marriage is retarded.”
Her second lesson was that people realise that their significant other cannot satisfy every need and desire that they might have. A person should have a life apart from their significant other.
“Another human being(no matter how perfect they are) isn’t equipped to be the centre of your life. They can’t. I can’t be the center of my daughter’s life for example. I am human and one day I will disappoint her despite my not wanting to.”
‘And so it’s my desire and obligation to know that my opinion isn’t her centre, her opinion is her centre. It isn’t cute for a spouse to ascribe things like, “Without you, I will die,” or “you are my everything” to their significant other. I know that it sounds harsh but your spouse can’t be that to you.’
If you have lived in Nairobi or have a friend in Nairobi, then you have a story of how the con men and women of Nairobi have their ways in your life.
Well, Kenyan celebrities have shared a couple of their encounters with conmen and women.
Kuconiwa is just a part of living in Nairobi, right? And there’s nothing you can do about it, but atleast by sharing your story, someone will read and they will be careful not to be in the same situations as yours.
Check out some con stories by our Kenyan celebrities;
Njugush is one of the most hilarious comedians in the 254. He will make fun about all situations. right?
Well, during a live session on his YouTube channel last week, Njugush was sharing stories with his wife Cele and the topic happened to be that of whether he has ever been conned.
Well, laughing Njugush narrated to his audience of his encounter with cons.
“Sometimes back, being obedient cost me alot. At OTC, I met some guys. Kulikua hadi na mama wa heshima nikaona kakitu kameroll mbele yangu, so they told me, eei kijana nisaidie kuokota hiyo kitu. Kumbe it was two hundred bob.
“As a pastors child, I did that respectifully and gave a guy who appreciated me for being ‘good’. He gave me the money. As I was about to go, he calls me and asked if I wanted to win so the money would double. They were playing ‘Kamare’. I joined in and tried the first time with their two hundred but nikakuliwa. They asked me how much I had. I was in high school and so, during the term, nilikua nimejinyima kabisa and had save five hundred bob to buy a radio. So I had five hundred in my pocket.”
Njugush says he does not understand how he removed his money and all of it was ‘eaten’ including his bus fare of a hundred bob.
Njugush was left begging people to contribute money for fare to get back home.
Bien narrated how they were swindled out of their earnings following a show they did in Congo years ago.
Speaking on the Janjaruka series, Bien said the promoter put together a disappointing show in a small venue with a very small audience, to which they still gave their best performance.
“On the day of the show, we went to the venue at like 10 in the night! The venue was a ghost town, there were like 15 people in that place, and the sound was whack,” he said.
“We gave them a stadium show still and after the show, he was supposed to give us about $10,000 (Sh 1 million) as a way of finishing off the payment.
“He was like, ‘I’ll finish off in the morning before you guys go to the airport, I need to go to the bank’,” Bien recalls.
The following day, they woke up to find their hotel room hadn’t been paid for and it took some back-and-forth phone calls between the hotel manager and their promoter to get the matter settled.
The band were desperate to leave as it was December 24 and they wanted to be home for Christmas.
“So, manze, everyone is so desperate at that point because at that point I don’t even care about the money, I just want to leave. I just want to go,” he says.
They had to decide whether to chase their money with someone who already proved to be flaky or to just abscond and walk away.
At the end of the day, they were forced to make the difficult decision to walk away from the money and catch the bus that crossed the border into Kigali, where they managed to catch their flight back to Nairobi.
Bien advised artistes before performing anywhere to make sure of 90 per cent deposit, 10 per cent negotiable or before performing because once you’re on stage, it’s in God’s hands.
Media personality Janet Mbugua has narrated how she was conned while on duty.
Janet recalled how she went to the home of an alleged serial killer’s victim in Nairobi’s Lenana area to interview the family about the alleged crime.
Janet was working for a South African media and had come to Kenya for work. “It was in 2010, there was a trending story on Onyancha, who was allegedly a serial killer carrying out some gruesome murders in Nairobi,” she said.
“We finally identified a man who said his son was allegedly a victim and we decided and agreed to go but asked to be provided with extra security as we had very expensive equipment with us.
“All I remember is we went deep into the hearts of Lenana to capture his story.”
On reaching there, the alleged victim’s father tricked her and her cameraman to trust a group of men that he called in to help offer more security and protection for them and their expensive equipment.
He then went ahead to invite Janet to his home for tea, leaving the cameraman and driver, a group of four people, and they seemed legit.
“It was almost 5pm. The distance where I was going to record was short. I went to the house and got to know the family as I wait for the videographer to come so he films us,” she said.
“It took long, 10, 20 minutes and I was like, it’s taking long, why hasn’t he come back? It is almost 6pm, so I told them, we need to go check what was happening.
“The man who had led us to the house says lemme go check to make sure they are okay. He left the house and 10 minutes later, he ran into the house, saying, ‘Wameibiwa! Gari imeenda.
She says she was confused and all of a sudden, she remembered her handbag with her passport were all in the car.
She managed to locate a police officer who helped her go back to the hotel she was living in.
Janet and her cameraman were later that evening reunited with her cameraman with no shoes on, shaken and all their equipment gone!
“Everthing we had filmed in Mombasa was gone with the equipment, worth half a million. We just cried and we could not continue with our work, but we were alive,” she said.
“The man we were going to interview is behind this whole thing. He basically set us up!” Janet recalls her cameraman telling him upon his return.
They never got a chance to ascertain if the man’s son was an actual victim to the serial killer’s crime or if the whole thing was a fake set-up from the get-go.
Gospel singer Ben Githae has revealed the reason he does not drink alcohol.
Speaking to Ala C on YouTube, Ben says he is afraid that bad things will follow him.
“My grandmother cursed me. Alisema nisiwai kunywa pombe,” he said.
Ben says that the only time he took alcohol was in 2014 but a fellow artiste stopped him and reminded him about the curse.
“In 2014, I tried drinking at a function we attended together with other artistes. I asked a Guarana but after the first sip, Muigai Wa Njoroge took it away and reminded me of what my grandmother warned.”
He, however, says that there could be gospel artistes who take alcohol but people should not judge them.
“If there are artistes who drink, please stop exposing them. That will not stop them from drinking. My advise is that if it is possible for them to quit, it would be fine.”
During the interview, Ben also mentioned that despite being a gospel singer, he has strayed and cheated in his marriage and got other children out of wedlock.
“But God lifted me up again. I take care of all my kids. I have made it official about my kids. I don’t have an illegitimate kid and I now how many they are,” he said adding that he will post a photo with them.”
He has since overcome and moved on although he says it was not easy.
“You check the mistake and learn from it. You go back to God and ask for forgiveness. I wouldn’t want anyone to go through what I went through coz even today, I still feel the effect.”
To any person who may be in the same condition as he was few years ago, the Tano Tena hitmaker says;
“Pick up the broken pieces and start again. To any person who do not take care of their children, all kids irregardless of where you got them from, they deserve the best from you,” he said.
Media personality Anita Nderu become the topic of discussion on Twitter yesterday after she made remarks about her not wanting her kids to go through what she has gone through for being a member of LGBTQ.
“I hope my kids never have to go through what I have gone through for being LGBTQ,” she tweeted.
Her tweet left many questioning her sexuality while others questioned her decision to post such kind of information.
I hope my kids never have to go through what I have gone through for being LGBTQ+ 🏳️🌈❤️
This is not the first time Anita has trended because of posting about the LGBTQ community.
About two months ago, in one of her episodes on Instagram ‘The overdressed cook’, she hosted two members of the LGBTQ community and her post attracted mixed reactions from fans.
During an interview with Massawe, Anita said she will not apologise for hosting members of the LGBTQ community on her cooking show, ‘The overdressed cook’.
“They were just being themselves and nothing on the show was scripted,” she said. “What I know is they won’t love you all the time, some things you do, they will celebrate you, others, they will not. It is a right of expression and so I respect people’s opinions,” she said.
“I refuse to apologise for choosing to allow my friends to be who they are and for airing the episode ‘coz it is my channel and I am allowed to do that. I just hope people will be open-minded.”
On whether she is a member of the LGBTQ, Anita said that is private.
“When I’m ready to share, I will,” she said, adding she will have another episode on the same.
Legendary singer David Mathenge alias Nameless is one man whose experience in the Kenyan music industry cannot be frowned upon.
Over 20 years in the game, the singer has done well for himself both professionally and in his personal life. In the home front, he has been blessed with a lovely wife in Wahu and two wonderful daughters.
Nameless warned young girls about dating men with six-packs, saying that they had no money and that they should date men with a one-pack(kitambi) instead.
“One-pack ninjaz are you there? Galchild do not be fooled by young men with six-packs, they do not have money. All their savings go to the gym and on diet. Get yourself a one pack ninja,” wrote Nameless.
Is his advice sound? I think it is but with a caveat as there are no absolutes in the sexual marketplace. There are men with 6-packs and jacked bodies who have money. Look at Bien of Sauti Sol, Savara of Sauti Sol, John Allan Namu and even the richest man in the world Jeff Bezos who all have money.
The thing that Nameless should be worried about is the old adage of, “No man hits the gym to just sleep with one woman.”
There is a reason many wives cheat on their husbands with their gym trainers. Simply put, many of these men with the great bodies are heartbreakers ala’ Diamond Platnumz, they don’t have just one woman, they have a harem. They are the consummate f*ckboys.
Betty Kyallo and Mwalimu Churchill teamed up this past week in one of the best shows of 2020. The two celebs who are from the Kamba ethnic community gave fans the time of their lives with Churchill interviewing the bubbly Betty.
The interview was such a memento for the former K24 host that she even made a note about how special it was in her latest vlog on BK Lately.
She recounted, “It was like I was reciting my life story directly to the lens and I got so emotional, at one point I nearly broke down but I tried to hold myself and be strong. I was literally being honest with myself in that interview; I accepted my not-so-pretty past and I openly spoke about it.”
She also came clean on her very rough relationship with her dad, but that how spoke about her during his interview with Churchill touched her.
He called me “daddy’s girl”. He was so proud of me and that was so special to me. I even texted him and said, “dad thank you so much for saying all those amazing words to me”. Because I never got to hear them many times while growing up. I got to hear what he actually thought about me.
And it wasn’t only her dad’s words that impressed Betty, her mom and sister’s words also amazed her,
“I’m happy I was alive to hear what my family had to say about Betty. In life, tell the people you love, what you think about them, what you love about them, what they do that makes you happy. Don’t wait to say it to them at their funeral or on their sick bed,” she urged her fans.
