Mike Irungu is an upcoming artist in Kenya who takes us back to the likes of Harry Kimani and Eric Wainaina with his soft passionate voice.
Mike, who goes by the stage name Mikka, is not only a talented singer but also a TV presenter on Y254 and a poet, he’s quite talented ain’t he?
In an interview with Classic 105Fm, his new single ‘Polepole‘ was dedicated to someone he was in love with but fortunately or unfortunately they aren’t together anymore.
“When I wrote it I had someone in mind, I was describing a chic and that’s why I said Malaika because I believe there is something unique and beautiful in every woman that makes them stand out and makse them look like an angel in one’s eyes and I was trying to make it relatable to everyone..”
His audio has a soft touch making it catchy and appealing to the audience.
The song bird gave us a glimpse of his new song ‘Niwe’ which is set to be released this month and he also added that it was dedicated to the same girl he sang previously about.
When it comes to inspiration and what he does best, Nyashinski and Tekno are the two big artist that he vibes with.
However, to all the single ladies stay woke as the hot talented artist is single and ready to mingle, you never know you maybe the next girl he sings to.
Bongo sensation Ali Kiba has today married his fiancée Amina Khalef, at the Diamond Jubilee Hall, Mombasa. Reports indicate that Ali has been dating the woman since late 2016.
Ali Kiba decided to settle down with Amina Khalef, who is a Kenyan from Mombasa, after his breakup with beauty queen Jokate Mwegelo over “irreconcilable differences”.
When they were dating, word went around that Ali Kiba was cheating on her, something that convinced Jokate’s family that the singer is not the right man for her. No one knows what really led to their separation.
Well, in any big occasion like this one, hater or trolls are always everywhere trying to remind us of the past. That is exactly what has happened after Jokate Mwegelo, the ex- girlfriend to Kiba who took to her social media and wrote;

We all know Maina Kageni is a foodie, who also enjoys eating alongside his dabo dabo. So it’s expected that he would want a woman who can cook right? Wrong!!!
Wanatosha mboga, according to his the Classic 105 presenter.
Well, today during the morning conversation Maina raised this topic of why men cannot marry women who do not know how to cook.
Julie Gichuru yesterday posted that her father thought she would never get married because she never knew how to cook.
She wrote on her instagram page;
“My father was reading the newspaper but stopped to contribute to a debate I was having with my mother.
He interjected firmly, “But Julie, you must learn how to cook!” He was perturbed but I could tell it came from a place of love. So here’s the low down. I was a teenager & I had pointedly refused to learn how to cook.
As the only daughter in the family it was obvious & apparently a source of social embarrassment. Indeed, in an African – Asian home this was unheard of, girls should know their place & the kitchen was part of that. But I was adamant, I was disinterested in the art of cooking..
Well, the discussion was lit and had mixed reactions from the listeners.
Mwalimu King’ang’i’s view was that he cannot marry a woman who can’t cook adding that she should not be just a cook but a good cook, Si ‘kupika mashakura’.
Maina responded by reminding him that a man can eat out or better yet hire a chef. After all who will marry these girls studying catering?
It was during this time that Kingangi said, ‘Taftieni Maina Kageni bibi Mluhya specifically, Unajua shida yako ukianza kufikiria bibi unafikiria Vera na Huddah.”
Then Maina said, “Me it’s either Huddah or Vera,
He added that he has eaten out for more than 10 years and doesn’t know the price of a packet of unga.
Two Kenyans from the LGBT community are set to walk down the aisle. While it is not known in what country they will say ‘I Do’, Kenya won’t be it, as it is illegal.
KOT have reacted strongly to this news of Brian Waititu and Eric Kamande, two Kenyan gay lovers, who it is claimed will wed.
Their engagement pictures were trending on social media showing the moment when Waititu went down on one knee and proposed to his boyfriend Eric who was so happy and surprised and said yes to his lover.
Ndegwa wa Njoroge went on social media to congratulate the two who are in the process to finish their wedding preparations.
“Join me in congratulating Brian Waititu on his engagement to Ericious Romand (Eric Kamande), this is a very brave and commendable move as the two finalize their wedding preparations. #TeamRainbow #ProudlyDifferent.”

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
Going out of your way to put a smile on someones face who needs it more than anything else is just a blessing.
Students from Joyland special school in Kisumu had gone for a school trip at Aberdare National park but one student was left on the school bus because her condition made it impossible for her to walk.
Philip Wesa a KWS Ranger went out of his way to carry a disable student Deborah Nyaboke on his back in order for her to enjoy her trip at Aberdare.
By the show of the pictures the student had a blast and couldn’t stop smiling and the ranger seemed happy to see he had kept a smile on her face.
On social media a young man felt that what the Ranger had done was just but a pure act and shared his story.
“KWS Ranger Philip Wesa is one a service man amongst many. He sacrificed to carry a disabled Deborah Nyaboke on his back in a hilly Aberdare National park in effort to make her view the chania Falls. Nyaboke a Form two pupil at Joyland special school in Kisumu had been left in the vehicle by her teachers and attendants as they ascended the Aberdare since she couldn’t climb on her own and only left to receive the information from her colleagues. Mr. Wesa ..touched, .decided to go back to the vehicle, clutched his gun then hoisted the poor Deborah on his back. Yes, she joined her colleagues at the park and her dream was realized. This act of sacrifice and heart is rare.Congratulations Warden Philip Wesa for this great show of humility. Ladies and Gentlemen, Humanity is service……Share until it. He deserves recognition!!”
It is evident that in this cruel world their are still good people with good intentions and just like American comedian and TV personality Ellen DeGeneres once said,
“We need more kindness, more compassion, more joy, more laughter. I definitely want to contribute to that.”
You think everyone is done with Easter holiday like you are? No, Janet Mbugua and her family are currently in Watamu for a holiday vacation and she is surely enjoying her time. The mother of one and her hubby Eddie Ndichu are expecting their second child.
Janet talked about the holiday trip on her social media and well, the couple has started showering us with the beautiful photos of themselves at the coast.
Kenyans love a story that will take them away from the daily monotony of politics and poor governance. A classic feel-good story. The next story is an oddity in that many Kenyans were fascinated by the pictures of a very young girl praying with gusto andzest.
Photos of the little girl kneeling and praying at a public event left Facebook users inquiring about the identity of the child. The child belongs to Pastor Israel Ezekiel New Song Worship Church’s.
The photos were taken on Sunday when the three-year-old was attending a worship experience at Railways Club. Photographer Chris Wanga, popularly known as #PastorwaPicha, shared the photos on his Facebook page.
Baby Praise’s father Pastor Israel told Nairobi News that the young girl has always enjoyed prayer time. He said:
“Her birth was mysterious and became a revelation that led to us naming her Praise. She had the umbilical code around her neck and despite us having prayed for the mother to have a normal delivery, the doctor recommended a Cesarean Section. It was after she was born that we saw the umbilical code around her neck and interpreted it as an attempt by the devil to silence her. Because God had given us victory we decided to call her Praise.”
That is not all. She also prays for congregants when they come to the altar. Her father continued:
“She usually comes to the alter when people come to be prayed for and stretches her hands towards them while praying. When you try to remove her from the altar she gets very angry and says that she needs to pray for people.”
Pierra Makena is one of the few Kenyan female Dj’s who is well-known and has a following. The curvy Dj has been secretive about her age, making sure that suspicion and speculation is all there is when it comes to what her age is. But not anymore.
It’s rare to find a celebrity who can tell their real age, especially on this continent. From footballers to socialites, most of them never age and are always sweet 18, 20 0r 24. Bodacious DJ Pierra Makena has revealed her age and Kenyans are shocked.
The former Tahidi High actor and mother of one just clocked 37 years old. Yes! Pierra Makena is 37 but wait, she doesn’t look like her real age.
“About to rock this 37!!!!!👸😋 Happy bornday indeed #BEYOU,” read the heavily endowed DJ’s message.
Well, Celina, a fellow actor also wished Pierra Makena a happy birthday and also had a message to body shamers.
Check out comments from Makena’s followers

“When i started this marriage journey with my husband many people told me how can a star like me just get married to an ordinary deejay. Some made jokes that other ladies are gettings cars as gift from their husband but i got a mix tape. Well this guy who was called an ordinary deejay is doing exploits now in Christ Jesus. This is to show you God can use anyone and raise anyone Just have faith and trust God. And I know God is not yet finished with him he is about to do even more thru him. To every deejay out there God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above your imagination. And to everyone else don’t let any body discourage you coz of where you are right now tomorrow you might be a great legend.

When it comes to innovation, Safaricom is an A-lister. The telecoms company is a giant in retail, events and all things entertainment. Just recently, it launched its music streaming app, Songa by Safaricom.
The app is available to download by dialling *812# on Smartphone, or just directly from the Google Play Store. There are many reasons why you need to try this app, but here are a few that will make you see how badly you are missing out on the biggest thing in music right now.
1. The app was proudly made and launched in Kenya
What can make you even more impressed than a sexy, super cool and colorful music app that was developed by Kenyans, just for you? You read that right. The app, which is now everyone’s favorite was made in Kenya. It is of international standards but still has that Kenyan vibe to it; once you download it, you’ll see what I mean. If Nyashinski, one of Kenya’s best artistes of all time can endorse the app, that means that it has the best to offer!
2. It has over 2.5 million songs!
The app has a huge library of song to choose from. That’s a whole lot of tracks! Can you even get bored while you have the app? I highly doubt! Personally, I have tried listening to 500 songs in a day and I couldn’t finish them. Given that one song is 3-5 minutes long, you can’t run out of options with Songa by Safaricom. Whether its Afrobeats, Bongo, Kapuka, Rock, Hip Hop, Pop, Kwaito…everything you need, you can get it on the app! What are you waiting for? Download it NOW!
3. You can pay as low as 25 bob to enjoy!
I do not know of any other app that allows you to enjoy music for as low as 25 shillings a day. I am talking of a really, really good app that has over 2.5 million songs, that allows you to stream music offline and has an immense freedom of choice when it comes to the selection of songs. With Songa, you can do that! Download the app to see the exciting payment options it has.
4. Celebrities love the app!
If you don’t believe me, just search the hash tag #SongaBySafaricom on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram and see for yourself. They have tried it, and they simply love it!
This is because of its intuitive, stylish design and the great range of music it offers. Above all, why not support a Kenyan product? Why not be proud of an app that is making it possible for you to listen to music, anywhere, anytime at a very pocket friendly price?
5. All the biggest artistes in Africa have their music on the app!
I cannot even finish the list of big artistes who have their music on the app. Do you love Dela, Diamond Platnumz, Bahati, Mercy Masika, Sauti Sol and other hit makers? Song by Safaricom is home to their great content! Just download the app and access their music. Did I mention that there is a 14-day FREE trial of the app? Just dial *812# and get it!
Watu wametoka mbali. Money and fame can make you a whole different person in just a second.
Have you ever looked back at your old photos and you wondered who that was? or what was I wearing and just laugh at yourself?
It’s hilarious that some celebrities cannot even be recognized because their then and now pictures look totally different, but we cannot blame them because everyday we make a step forward to better ourselves.
There is nothing like a mother’s love. Betty Bayo lavishes her two children with soooo much love.
She wrote, “When i look back kuria nyumite haria ndi (where I have come from and where I’m at now) all the challenges ups and down and how God has been faithful kwanza hii mwaka Wacha mungu aitwe MUNGU.”
