Mulamwah is among the new generation of comedians who use social media to propel their craft.

He also has side hustles that add up to his income. The comedian revealed in an exclusive with Mpasho.co.ke that he is a farmer.

The comedian has also helped in the employment sector as he has employed youths in his boda boda business at his rural hometown Kitale.

His journey from not being able to pay for his trip back to primary school to cresting employment is a boss move from Mulamwah.

He also worked at Kenyatta National Hospital as a nurse.

Singer Vivianne on whether she has ditched secular music

Singer Vivianne for the first time opened up on rumours she has quit being a secular artist.

In an exclusive interview with Classic 105, the mother of one said she has never felt like there is a line between gospel and secular music.

While responding to queries by fans after she recently released a gospel jam dubbed ‘Nimechoka na Kugambo.’

“The song is an honest conversation with God.

By the time my team and I were working on it, we wanted a song that would speak to the hearts of people.

People are broken, there are heightened cases of suicide, brokenness, loneliness, broken families

All those are because people are empty and ill-informed as they are feeding on the wrong sources.

There is a lot of hurt going on.”

Hilarious tweets about the talking stage that’ll make you say yup, that’s me

Explaining if she has quit secular industry, Vivianne explained;

“I have never felt like there is a line between gospel and secular, I feel we just impose pressure on people.

It’s like it’s illegal for someone who sings love songs to sing for God and vice versa.

It does not make sense because people feel like they are held in a ‘jail’ and most people (gospel) have broken away from that ‘jail’.

Most of these artists are imperfect and very young. I have come of age where I can express a genuine love for God.

So I am neither a secular nor a gospel artist.”

“I was left for a year nilichafua, I was disoriented.

But I have now realized who I am. My relationship with God changed. I thought I had a relationship with God but I didn’t.

I saw her for who she is. She is an amazing person, she is super supportive and if that breakup never happened I couldn’t see her the way I see her now.

Love never changes it only transcends.”

Singer Vivianne explains the challenges female artists go through

Vivianne is one of the veteran female artiste in the Kenyan industry.

Despite the male dominated space, Vivianne has made herself a name. She is one of the best musician so far. Her latest hit is ‘NimechokaNaKugambo’.

In a recent interview with Classic 105, the mother of one spoke about her experiences as a female secular musician in Kenya and the crazy expectations that come with it.

She explained;

 “More like personal struggles, self-rejection, identity crises. As a female artist the package comes in, the shorter the short, the tighter the boots, the smaller the crop-top.

Date the right person. Date someone who will connect you. Meet so and so.

It has a lot to do with seeking externally and waiting for people to validate you so that you fit in. And it doesn’t work.”

She also complained that people in the industry try to romantically hook up the female artists with top dogs in the political scene;

“Even the person advising you doesn’t know what they are supposed to be doing. Generally, I have really passed through so much.

Like people try to pimp you out to politicians because you are pretty. All kinds of absurdities. Those are lies.”

She urged young girls to be confident in their own abilities and be their genuine selves;

“Whoever you are supposed to be, however, you are supposed to be.

You will still shine because the gift is still the gift.

It’s just sad that when you don’t know who you are, the world will give you a false sense of identity that can kill you, cause you’re trying to keep up and you’re not being the real you.

You’re trying to become someone who you think people will accept and love.”

Luo’s how do you live filanga free without stress Maina asks


A mental health survey by ethnicity, states that Kikuyus are on top of the list of Kenyans with the most stress.

The list by the Bureau of statistics shows Kisii’s are second followed by Kalenjins in 3rd place.

Maina and Kingangi debated this on the Friday morning conversation September 17.

Mwalimu said it is understandable about Kisii’s because musician Embarabara has put them in the limelight “embarabara amewafikisha huko na bado hajatoa wimbo ingine”

Maina read the figures out again “1 in every 4 kikuyus is stressed. Ni nini mbaya? They are followed by Kisii’s  and third place is Kalenjins”

Mwalimu pointed out about Kalenjins saying “hiyo ni ya Ruto”

4th place is Luhyias and next the kamba. And then they are followed by the Meru then the Masai and then we head out to the Mijikenda.

Maina was so tickled and pointed out that the Luo’s are the least stressed in the survey.

He wanted to know what their trick was asking “the least stressed group in Kenya are the Luo. Let me ask a question how are you doing it?”

Mwalimu reminded him that “they are already there bana they can see canan” he joked

A man actually agreed with this and called to say that ” as long as baba is ok we are ok”

The question Maina asked was “Luos how do you do it? live filanga free without stress? maina asked. How do you just go with the flow? me I just love that. maybe we can learn something from you.

Chrissy Teigen has fat removed from her cheeks in cosmetic surgery

Chrisy Teigen had a cosmetic procedure done and she is talking about it on Instagram.

The 35 year old wife of singer John LKegend said

 “I like it. Yeah, I did it, what? No shame in my game,”

Teigen has been on a sobriety journey over the last 50 days and celebrated overcoming her habit.

In a video posted on Instagram, the wife of singer John Legend, showed off the results from a fat removal surgery that she had done on her face.

“I did that Dr. Diamond buccal fat removal thing here,” Teigen, 35, said. And since I quit drinking, I’m really seeing the results, and I like it. Yeah, I did it, what?”

The fat removal procedure was not the first time the cookbook author had a similar operation done.

“Maybe nine years ago, [I had] my armpit sucked out which was one of the best things I’ve done. It’s a big secret, but I don’t care. It added two inches to my arms. It made me feel better in strapless dresses, and I felt more confident,” Teigen said to Allure in May 2017.

“Everything else is fake, but my cheeks are real. Women are like, ‘Those fake-ass cheeks,’ and I’m like, ‘No! This is my real face.’ I’m very open with all that other s–t.”

From bano to chobo ua: A list of games we played as children

In case you were born past 2000, hold up, you sure don’t know what I’m about to talk about. We from the nineties played real games. Games that tested one’s patience, resilience and critical thinking.

Here’s how to kill your Monday blues

I’m seated reminiscing about those gone moments and here some of the games we played back in the 90’s:

1. Chobo Ua

This has to be the roughest game among boys back in the days. Millennials, let me break it down to you. Chobo is where a ball passes between your legs. For chobo ua it was all about dribbling the ball and trying to pass it between your other friend’s legs.

chobo ua(1)

Everyone played independent and woe unto you if the ball passed between your legs. Other boys chased you kicking you hard as you run towards the agreed point. Sometimes the touch point was a girl or a teacher. This made it easier for the one being chased. To be honest, how would you run towards a teacher and touch him or her so that the other boys can leave you alone?

2. Bano

Bano is what you woke kids call marble. This had to be the game that had too much adrenaline while playing. You had to drill a small hole in the ground and basically everyone tried to have the bano into the hole. While hitting the marble, you put your thumb on the ground and used the middle finger to release the bano. You had to aim your opponent bano and try to push it into the hole.

3. Cattie

This was a girl’s game and for the sissies. Basically it involved two girls standing on opposite sides and the other girls being in the between them. They would throw the ball to each other as they tried to hit one of the girls and after being hit, you had no option but quit. This went on and on until only one girl was left in the middle and the other two had to do their best and have the ball hit her.

4. Brikicho

Brikicho is what we call hide and seek. This game involved hiding and having someone else look for you. It went something like this, “Brikicho banture, brikicho banture. Nikuje? Apana Nikuje? Apana.”

hide and seek(1)

When everybody was ready they would respond by saying “eeh” The tricky part was outrunning the lead controller of the game when they found you in your hiding spot. You had to run fast and tap at the place they were spotted while singing the brikicho tune to avoid loosing and having to lead the tune yourself.

Listen Up Ladies! This Is How Hormones Could Be Ruining Your Figure

Do you have a body bugbear — an area with which you’re never happy, no matter how toned you are otherwise? Well, experts say there may be a scientific reason behind it — be it a muffin top, chunky ankles, or bingo wings. For research shows excess weight may gather in certain areas, regardless of how much you diet or exercise, as a result of hormone imbalances.

‘Our metabolism is complex. There are lots of reasons people are different shapes, but hormones are key,’ explains Saffron Whitehead, a professor of physiology at St George’s Hospital in London.

The most valuable body parts in Hollywood

‘Lifestyle, diet and genetics play a part,’ adds Max Tomlinson, a nutritionist and the author of Target Your Fat Spots. ‘The good news is, there’s lots you can do to redress the balance by changing hormone levels.’ Here, experts reveal the surprising causes of carrying a bit extra — and how to lose it.

JELLY BELLY

THE CULPRIT: Cortisol

Our bodies evolved to react to danger by producing the stress hormone cortisol, to trigger the release of energy for the ‘fight or flight’ response. ‘We are constantly under stress,’ says Dr Marilyn Glenville, a nutritionist specialising in women’s health. ‘Our excess cortisol sparks the release of energy in the form of fat and glucose. ‘This is redeposited as fat round your middle, near the liver. We think this is so it can quickly change back into energy if needed.’

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

‘Reduce stress — for example, with meditation or by listening to relaxing music,’ says Dr Glenville. ‘Eat little and often to keep blood sugar levels stable, as fluctuations can trigger cortisol release.’ Eat foods with a low glycemic load, such as apples, wholegrain bread or cashews, which slowly release energy. And avoid running for 45 minutes or more — this can, in fact,trigger cortisol production.

Reasons why wives stay with their husbands despite cheating allegations

  • Initials are the go-to most if not all women in this stage of life. I can agree with you that women are very smart beings and they can really play with any man’s psychology.
  • With the internet and dating apps present, some women have opened up to finding a side guy through tinder and saving them as “TN” with those initials to hide the person’s identity.
  • Last, but not least most are saved by where they live. This is a safe way because finding the person would be a bit difficult and challenging.

A list of things spouses would change about their partner

Wives want to change four things about their husbands… but husbands would change SIX things about their wives!

A survey of married couples found that mood swings were the thing wives would most like to change in a partner.

A survey of married couples gave a revealing insight into the daily gripes couples share with each other, including men being less grumpy and wives being more affectionate

A survey of married couples gave a revealing insight into the daily gripes couples share with each other, including men being less grumpy and wives being more affectionate

However, it seems men have a longer list of demands. Given the chance, husbands would change an average of six things about their partners, while women would only change four, the poll reveals.

For women, 35 per cent would make their partner less grumpy, while 30 per cent want them to be better listeners. Putting an end to bad habits is on the wish list for a quarter of wives – and the same number would like their husbands to become more appreciative.

For men, the top request for almost one in four was for their spouse to be more affectionate, while 22 per cent wished their other half was happier. One in five wanted their wives to be more adventurous in the bedroom. Overall, while the majority were happy in their marriage 13 per cent said they were unsure if they had ended up with the right person.

‘It appears that men would be less grumpy if they were given more affection and more adventurous sex, while women would be happier if men listened more and stopped their bad habits.

‘Regardless of the difference in complaints from both genders, the old relationship rules still apply – to try to listen to each other, to meet in the middle, and to show each other kindness, patience and respect.’

The survey of 1,500 couples by polling firm Ginger Research found that men wanted their wives to ‘dress sexier’, stop watching ‘bad TV programmes’, be more into sport and forget obsessing about their weight.

Women, however, wished their spouses would drink less, help more with chores, get rid of their beer belly and put the loo seat down. They also wanted to change their husband’s height, facial hair – and table manners.
