‘Is this your way of stopping me from getting a child to grow without a father’? Vera Sidika sadly asks after Otile Brown dumps her

Vera Sidika is a heartbroken woman after being dumped by her boyfriend Otile Brown only months after their much publicised relationship abegan.

The relationship between the two has unfolded like  scene from a fairy tale movie, but it seem like kitumbua kimeingia mchanga only a few months after they broke the internet with their baecation photos from Mauritius.

Vera Sidika took to her social media to vent and write a long letter on how Otile used her only so that he could gain publicity.


‘I love you’ Vera Sidika tells bae Otile Brown after releasing new jam

What caught our attention though is the fact that Vera has visited sperm banks in Los Angeles to learn more and how she can achieve her dream of carrying a baby without getting married.

She wrote

“I have said this a thousand times, on interviews that I don’t want to get married,it’s not my thing .All i wanted was to get a baby from sperm bank, set up businesses, live life,  date, have fun but not get married.

That was my vision about life it was crazy  that i actually visited sperm banks while in Los Angeles just to prepare myself for that stage, after launching my business that’s what I was going to do.

And just when I was going about setting my business and move on with my plans this happened, we started dating and it was mutual.

‘Huwezi potea na roho ya Otile na upotee na kiatu yake’ Vera Sidika told

Well atleast I thought it was and in several occasions I  prayed about it I asked God. Is this your way of changing my mind? Is this your way of stopping me from getting a child to grow without a father?Is this you God?  I was confused coz I didn’t understand how  this came at a time when I  had my own plans and was ready to execute them.”

From the message it is obvious that Vera feels betrayed as she had invested so much in this relationship.We can only wait and see if Otile will man up and apologize.

Newton Owino, the guy building a business selling fish leather products

39-year-old Newton Owino, separates fish skins from the rest of the waste, then turns them to make a kind of leather used to manufacture handbags, wallets, shoes, hats and jackets.

He has proved quite the innovative businessman with his fish leather.

fish leather1

Newton Owino, an industrial chemist and entrepreneur, is also the founder of a fish leather tannery in Kisumu.

In Kisumu, the city where grilled tilapia and Nile perch are a delicacy, Owino saw opportunity in the leftovers.

Reportedly, about 150,000 tonnes of fish waste is produced every year and 80% of it is dumped.

Owino thought of an innovative way to make use of them.

fish leather2


Mr. Owino applied his knowledge in industrial chemistry to tan and treat the fish skin for usable leather.

With his employees, he collects the fish skin directly from the filleting companies or has them sent over.

Furthermore, excess flesh and bone is scraped off the fish and dried for 24 hours.

fish leather6

Afterwards, the dried skin is treated.

A mixture of purely natural acids such as avocado and other citruses and local herbs is used for tanning the skin.

Similarly,  this process makes the skin softer, darker and less smelly, after which, it’s descaled, thoroughly dried and becomes workable leather, thus ready for use.

Meanwhile, Newton’s tannery also makes accessories and items made from leather.

While there are other tanneries in town, Owino’s is the only one specialising in fish leather.

He says he uses a chemical-free tanning process for his unique products.

Above all, Newton hopes to expand his business with a manufacturing school and training facility for prospective fish tanners.

Newton Owino is proof of the saying, ‘one man’s trash is another man’s treasure’ but in this case one man’s trash can be another man’s treasure.

Here’s part of his interview with Aljazeera.

“Today I just want to celebrate this beautiful woman who raised my wife to be like the proverbs 31 woman… aka “mutumia ngatha”. My wife is just a replica of her… kind, honest, intelligent hardworking go-getter. I Will never forget the day I went with my family to ask her for her daughter’s hand in marriage. I was just a hustler without much to offer for dowry as it is a tradition. She just told me not to worry much but give what I have , however little i had …what she was more interested in was to see her daughter settle in her own home and raise a family in peace love and unity… Mali tutafute pamoja.


FARE THE WELL MAMA no more pain and suffering. I had promised you ukipona we will go to Israel pamoja to see where the Jesus you love so much was born but now I believe you are dancing with Jesus and the Angels in heaven. Mum i will be forever indebted unto you 

In a sad and touching post, Sarah Kabu mourned her mother stating that she still could not believe she is gone .

“How do I say goodbye to you my friend… I loved you so much. I already miss you so badly for the 1 week you have been away… You had become my 3rd baby whom I loved to spoil… I can’t believe you are gone forever.”

“It has taken me 5 years of tooth and nail to develop my retirement home, I promised myself never to live with relatives after so many disappointments, but hey I am human too,so 3 years ago, I decided to live with one of my cousins and a son of my neighbor whom I educated without any difficulty of school fee! When results came , none of them wanted to share with me their results, they had failed terribly!but hey it’s fine, failure in education is not failure in life ! So told them to wait for this year to pass so we could figure out what they could do with the Es and the Ds they got , so left them to take care of my home!”

She adds

“They grew lazy and instead gave the employees hard time ! Dictating them, claiming the wealth is from their sister! Some employees left, and the security guards were not allowed to utter a word (RELATIVES) So they dint allow the employees perform their duties or report to me any challenges! They played like they have reported everything & I am aware. Every morning I called his phone was never answered neither did he call me back, sent several text to know how my home is doing! Even asked for photos! All I heard was everything is fine ! The two of them sold my 30 chicken , extra beddings from the employees , vandalized all the electrical wires connecting the garden lights living the whole home in darkness!”


Kenyan celebrities you did not know were related despite being in the limelight

If you think that is the worst, more was yet to come and when Akothee felt she could not take any more of their drama, she threw them out,

“Went ahead and chop off the wires to the submusive pump ! So imagine what is with the animals and garden! the pool went to zero and turned into a frog pond, My milk was rejected from Rongo dairy because they divided the milk and added water on their way ! When I released my cousin ! he told the watchman to tell us to check on the CCTV! Only to realise that the CCTV power cable was chopped off right inside my bedroom ! He was the one with the house key and the only one accessing my bedroom ! I remember in February I asked them to leave my home! Coz all the employees complained about them ! But where do we take orphans too😭 I have weak heart So I gave them a 2nd chance! Which has left me in pain! #iaminsomuchpain😭 what would you do? 3rd chance🤐?”

This is where they say once bitten twice shy, Akothee should learn that sio kila mtu wa kuaminika.

The African artistes bridging the gap between Africa and the West using music

It’s no secret that a number of spheres of life abroad are influenced by life in Africa., especially the music scene.

In this world of diverse cultures, it’s only appropriate these collabo’s have increased substantially, compared to before.

In recent times, we’ve seen multiple foreign artistes reach out to their African counterparts in the music industry and vice versa.

Here’s a highlight of some of the African artistes who are bridging the gap with the West:


Nigerian Starboy Wizkid made a very notable collaboration with the one and only Drake.


Drake himself is also known for collaborating with artistes from Africa.

Wizkid is featured in Drake’s single ‘One Dance’ in 2016 and Drake featured in Wizkid’s single ‘Come Closer’ in 2017 – which were both huge hits.




Just about a week ago, Nigerian afrobeats sensation Tekno and Ciara released audio for hit single ‘Freak Me’.


This caused a ruckus and immense excitement among Ciara’s African fanbase.

This isn’t the first time the two have collaborated with foreign artistes, but this is Ciara’s first major African collabo


He also collaborated on ‘Bad Girl’ with Drake earlier this year.


The Rwandese music video choreographer putting African dance on the world map


This Tanzanian singer became the first African artist to get 6-time platinum sales in universal sales on his single Marry You featuring Ne-yo.


He also did a collaboration with the reggae group Morgan Heritage on ‘Hallelujah’ which was a banger.


And about a month after that,he collaborated with American singer Omarion in ‘African Beauty’.


Also, let’s not forget ‘Waka’ with Rick Ross.


The sky is definitely not the limit for him, that’s for sure.

Another includes Ghanaian-English recording artiste, Fuse ODG who’s recorded with Sean Paul, Ed Sheeran and Wyclef Jean.
