Tanzanian singer Lava Lava who is signed under Diamond Platnumz’s WCB has denied that the label wants him out.
Talking to LilOmmy, the singer denied the rumours that he is not making money for the label.
“There is no truth in that. People just talk. Diamond is a businessman and he knows the ups and downs of the business. The management may not share with fans what they are planning for an artiste that’s why people keep on talking.”
He admitted that last year was not good for him in terms of the music business
“2019 wasn’t really good for me music-wise. I have to accept that my business was down. I didn’t release songs back to back and I was following up on family issues. I had family responsibilities.”
He went on decline that he is planning to follow Harmonize’s step by having his own Record Label “Bite Gang”.
Tanzanian singer Ben Pol and his Kenyan beau Anerlisa Muigai met early 2018 when he came to Kenya for a press conference.
The singer told Tanzania’s Clouds Media that he has already paid for dowry for the Kenyan entrepreneur.
“I have done all the traditions. The dowry is done. The ring. She is Kikuyu so I had to go and introduce myself, I left a couple of cows there. Hundreds of cows need to be presented. From there you get to be told the dowry. I have done all that and I’ve finished. What is left is the western things and law things (Church Wedding).”
He went on to reveal that he never knew that Anerlisa was from a rich background before falling in love
“I saw a beautiful woman. I didn’t know what she was into. She had a good smile and I started conversing with her. It didn’t matter who she was. I came to know her business later on and her status and that she is a famous person. She knew me but I didn’t know her. If I knew her status, maybe I’d be fake, I’d pretend”
Pol they fell in love so naturally that they couldn’t stay without communicating with each other “She was hugable, Kissable”
MCA Tricky and Akothee have been engaged in a playful back and forth after it emerged that Tricky might be dating the songstress’s daughter – something I am sure isn’t happening.
And it seems that it will go on longer as Tricky decided to respond to Akothee with a rather humorous post. In the post, the comedian put Rue baby under the bus, absolving himself from any issue that might have popped up due to their relationship.
Someone tell @akotheekenya this !!!! Word going round ati ooh sijui your daughter oooh @rue.baby is under siege courtesy of me, let me state it categorically, unapologetically & synergetically that this lady besides me is the #problem ,, so deal with the problem madam boss ,not my hair!!!!
Tricky is clearly not taking any prisoners with his savage response to Akothee. Don’t forget that a few days back Akothee had threatened to shave his hair, saying that men with such hair were troublesome.
“@rue.baby if you think of dating a man let him shave his hair please @mcatricky, you will not ask for double saloon money 🙆♂️🙆♂️🙆♂️ men with this kind of hair is troubles,” she said.
The comedian recently shared a never before seen photo acting from his acting days! According to Terence, he has come this far only by the grace of God and looking at the photo we can understand why he says this.
The caption of the photo read;
This is me acting as a Congolese. Maboko Likolo was my stage name. Life on the streets and smoking addiction
Terence had been a chain smoker who thought his only way of being creative is by smoking cigarettes. The actor had previously spoken to The Star about his addiction noting that he couldn’t do anything without smoking,
One year ago I was a smoke slave. I couldn’t function without smoke, I kept it to my mind that I needed to smoke to be more creative. Later on I realised it was just a myth. I prayed to God and said to myself I will quit. I prayed and told God to free me ’cause I’m his child, and he did.
The actor had a tough childhood, raised by his grandmother by the age of 9,
I am the lastborn of three brothers. Our mum died when I was nine years. We grew under my grandmother’s house that was too small to accommodate by brothers plus my uncles. At times I thought I could walk out and go look for food. That is when I became a street kid for seven years.
Mike Mondo, who has been filling in for Maina Kageni, had a captivating topic today on Classic 105. He and Mwalimu spoke about the recent suspension of 10 students from St. Mary’s school, Nyeri for spotting tattoos.
Mike and King’ang’i were shocked that a section of parents agreed with school administration not to admit their children. They both felt that the teachers had a point in suspending the students.
How do the tattoos prevent a student from learning? As a parent, I support that. As long as the kid is learning, shule iwache ushamba! – A mother spoke.
If I was near the holy Bible, I would show you where it is written that it is forbidden -A man said.
I am with Mwalimu on this and I think we need to have universal values. When you allow your kid to go out there and have tattoos, will they be accepted? I am a mother of boys and I don’t think their future wives families will accept them with the tattoos. The reason we have uniformity in the school is those differences(tattoos, dreads) can create disruption – A woman said.
But that summation alone would be to take away from her charming/infectious personality and her business nous as the Yallo Leather founder. Mercy, who is Betty’s younger sister normally has some fascinating insights that she reveals on her page.
This week the entrepreneur used a quote by Kenyan Tycoon Dr Chris Kirubi to respond to the people who have been harassing her for being single and not married yet.
The quote described marriage as something that one doesn’t go looking for, but it comes to a person just like a blessing. She went on to say that if you chase marriage, you will end up with the wrong partner.
“To our online aunties & uncles (bado hujaolewa trolls) ‘Marriage comes to you and it is a blessing, but you don’t go chasing it around because you will get the wrong partner. If I’m blessed then I will be blessed,’ Chris Kirubi,” read Ms Kyallo’s post.
I am still not sure about Mercy’s age but that still should not be a factor in anyone dictating what she does with her life.
To wit; Her body, her choice, her life, her responsibility. Let her be.
Willy Paul was the most streamed artiste in Kenya last year. The artiste had some break-out hits last year including “Halleluyia” featuring Nandi and “Mmmh” featuring Rayvanny. Both songs have garnered close to 22 million views on Youtube to date.
I recently spoke to the singer about the year he had had and his plans for 2020. Willy revealed that 2019 had gone exactly as he had planned and that in 2020, he was ready to surprise people with greater and better.
“2019 was a good year. My target for 2019 was to remain at number one in Kenya, which I did and to do international collaborations which I was able to do.”
On his plans for 2020, the musician said that he wanted to keep up the same spirit that he had gone through 2019 in.
“2020 isn’t going to be any different lakini tutaenda a notch higher. The project I am releasing tomorrow is going to be the talk of the town. I will not state the name of the song but it will be good.”
The “gospel” artiste has recently been seen promoting a liquor brand on his Instagram pages raising eyebrows among many observers.
Was he a brand ambassador for the liquor brand? Willy responded in the affirmative noting that it was just a business to him. Does this mean that he had crossed over from being a gospel musician to being a secular artiste?
Willy responded by simply saying that he was just an “artiste”. Nothing more and nothing less.
The subject brought out the hordes of keyboard warriors who tore at the couple for the Sh7,000 and VIP Sh10,000 per couple cover charge at The Emory hotel.
But DJ Mo isn’t a shrinking violet and took the issue head-on, telling concerned parties that the event was for couples who could afford to pay.
“I don’t know why people think the event is expensive because the fee includes all the activities and the four-course meal. We want to make Valentine’s Day different from what people have been doing. Even if we put it at the lowest price, there are still those who will still not afford,” he said.
And what should couples attending the dinner expect?
“It’s a red carpet affair for everyone, surprise couples on the panel, The Guest speaker, eating and drinking (a 4-course meal), flowers, chocolates, a lot of dancing, games, etc.”
He finished off by clarifying the role the couple were going to play at the event saying that they were only moderators,
“As the Muraya’s, we are just the moderator of the event, but many other couples will come and share their stories, which will inspire people.” A relationship is a beautiful thing, especially with the right partner and well-rooted in God, whether married, dating, courting or even mnakatiana,” DJ Mo said.
Mike Mondo and Mwalimu King’ang’i had an interesting conversation today that concerned submission. Mike referenced an interesting comment a female caller had made where she advocated for submission in order to save many marriages.
“Women don’t respect their men anymore. Ladies also want to have their say in many marriages. Respect your man even if he is a fool.”
King’ang’i agreed with the woman’s statement saying, “There are some decisions that men make that are shocking. If women tell you some of the nonsense they go through, you would advise them to leave. The secret to a happy marriage is to submit even if your man is a fool.”
One particular female caller gave her own anecdote about submission saying, “When I was getting married, my mom told me that for a marriage to succeed, moja lazima akuwe ng’ombe. I had been married for 14 years and before we separated. Tulikuwa fahali wawili! How can you be a ng’ombe forever? It does work if one becomes a ng’ombe.”
Some of the other comments are below;
I broke up with my boyfriend one and a half years ago. He was book smart but not street smart-A woman said.
You cannot demand submission it comes naturally. If you provide and respect that woman she will submit. Respect that union-Man.
Women were always meant to submit no matter how Rich or sophisticated they’re, there can’t be two heads leading at homes-Man.
Esther Akoth aka Akothee is not happy with a certain comedian, that entertainer being, the esteemed MCA Tricky.
She has even threatened to shave his hair!
Chill! What happened to warrant this type of response?
The president of the single mothers club made these remarks after asking her daughter Rue baby how her boyfriend MCA tricky was doing?
Ms. Akothee later went on to add that she would shave the comedian’s hair.
In a video the singer posted on her Instagram page, Akothee put a caption telling her daughter that if she thought of dating, she needed to date a man who was bald because men with such kind of hair (locks) were troublesome.
“How is your boyfriend MCA tricky? Why are you catching feelings or are you shocked that I know” asked Akothee. Her caption then read, “@rue.baby if you think of dating a man let him shave his hair please @mcatricky, you will not ask for double saloon money 🙆♂️🙆♂️🙆♂️ men with this kind of hair is troubles 🏃♂️🏃♂️🏃♂️🏃♂️🏃♂️🏃♂️🏃♂️🏃♂️🏃♂️🏃♂️🏃♂️.”
MCA Tricky responded to the threat with a cheeky reference to calling the police, the way Akothee normally does. “😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 😂😂😂 today am the one calling poliiiiiis mayoooooooo,” he wrote.
Eyebrows have been raised after MCA Tricky and Rue Baby have been spotted hanging out together on several occasions with even Rue’s sister, Vesha Shaillan claiming that her sister had been going out with the comedian.
Dr. Ofweneke was recently blessed with a baby girl. I interviewed the comedian afterward and he was candid about the birth. The entertainer already had 2 daughters before with Niccah the Queen, before he was blessed with this 3rd girl whose name is Eisley Favor Sande.
When I spoke to him the comedian was rushing home to sleep as he had been kept up by the new-born the previous night.
The comedian said that every birth he experienced had a different lesson each time. “I think that because I am used to this experience, every birth has become much easier with each subsequent baby,” he said.
The comic even detailed the first time that his partner at the time Niccah was pregnant and had serious cravings. He said that back then, Niccah had a craving for omena.
“The cravings had started in the middle of the night and I had to drive from Kiambu Road at the time to Nakumatt U.K just to get the protein.”
He added incredulously,
“I had to go from Kiambu Road to Nakumatt U.K at the time which was the only 24-hr supermarket. I was the only person shopping at 3 a.m. All the attendants were helping me shop at the time. I returned home at about 4 a.m. The whole apartment block started smelling like omena. Don’t forget this is around 4 in the morning.”
The man split from Niccah a few years back and has been dating the mother of his new-born, Christine Tenderess.
The mother of two did so on her YouTube channel, where she documented her experience from her tough labour, up until when her bundle of joy arrived.
“I came to hospital to be induced at around 1 pm but I wasn’t induced because I had opened up to four centimetres,’ she said.
What came next was pain and torment for the actress as she stayed in the labour ward crying.
“Hii uchungu zii.. [this pain is too much to bear]. The doctor broke my water and I even after I opened up to 10 centimetres, the baby wasn’t coming out yet the passage was clear. from 1 am to 2 am I cried, removed my clothes and pulled my hair. the things I saw at the labor ward…,” she exclaimed.
The pain and suffering was so much that she begged the doctor to allow her to do a CS, which he refused and she ended up giving birth the old-school way.
“I got to a point and begged doctors to let me have the baby through cs because the pain was too much. I had pushed the baby and got tired and relaxed..without knowing I had blocked the kid from coming out. When he came out he didn’t cry. I started crying, asking myself what had happened to him. For five minutes he wasn’t responding to anything and that was the most scariest part of my life.” she said.
But thank God she is now the happy mother of two after her tough delivery.
Bahati’s reality show is getting desperate or am I just cynical?
What new plot twist have the excellent screenwriters of the “reality” show come up with now?
Drum roll, please. Yvette Obura has demanded a brand new car from the controversy-riddled singer. This is to aid her daily hustle of dropping their daughter Mueni Bahati to school every morning.
In the latest episode of Bahati Reality, Mama Mueni said that it’s about time the father of her daughter thinks about getting them a house and car that will aid their movements around the city.
In a scene fitting a telenovela, Ms Obura stormed into Bahati’s office saying,
“How have you been!? Naona unacheza PS tu kwa Ofisi, enyewe wewe umemake it. Alafu sasa unanibuyia Gari lini? Juu strory ya Cab imenichosha Kabisa. Gari ya kubeba Mueni. So gari ukibuyia Mueni mimi ndo nitaendesha , juu huku naona kuna gari tatu. Utanunua ama hutanunua? Juu huku naona kuna tatu na naona, na hata hiyo Van. 2020 lazima niendeshe gari. Hata tuwachane na story ya Gari, sasa Nyumba unatununulia lini? Nyumba ya mtoto wako na najua unaweza afford, leo ni leo sitaki kujua kama camera ziko ama jaziko lazima needs zangu zikuwe fulfilled. Hata think of it, hiyo nyumba yako wakati ulikuwa unabuyia, haikuwa supposed to be under my name ama under Mueni’s name. Imagine tunaendanga kila mahali na Taxi”
Was the singer phased by Yvette’s reasoning? Nah! He responed by stating that,“Kwani naenda nikinunulia watu gari Kenya, Gari ya nini Kwanza na Mueni namlipia Taxi. Kwani unabuyiiwa gari juu huku ziko.”
Don’t forget in October last year, Bahati bought a car for musician Denno. This might have inspired Yvette’s bright idea in asking her man for a car too.
Just the other day, Bahati had to explain why he decided to block his Baby Mama. The singer argued that he blocked the mother to his daughter, because she was talking to blogs about him for no good reason.
Willis Raburu continues to mourn the death of his unborn baby girl Amana. The man has been abroad with his wife Marya Prude as they try to recover from the horrible miscarriage that they had.
One of the ways that he has conceived to deal with the loss is by speaking on the huge platform that he has with fans, Instagram. The 10 over 10 presenter told his fans it was okay to have a shaken faith at times.
Willis said that Christians and any other believers are allowed to question God from time to time as every human was granted the gift of free will so they are allowed to state when life gets too unfair.
“Prayer is conversation, how are you going to be real with your life, your friends, your partners and then it comes to God the one who created you for fellowship. You are going to do what?” he posed.
The journalist and his wife travelled to the US to clear their minds after tragedy knocked on their door. The bubbly character narrated how his world was turned upside down and how he has tried to revert back to his old self.
Maina and King’ang’i spoke about the can of worms Babu Owino opened after his gun antics that took place last week Friday.
The host said that what Babu had done was endemic of a bigger issue that the country was facing, that is a culture where leaders did as they please with impunity. “Kenyan leaders behave like they are above the law. It didn’t start with Babu. It is a consequence of a wider thing.”
Mr. Kageni even added that the first thing Babu said after his arrest was that he was going to support BBI.
King’ang’i agreed with the gist of Maina’s argument saying that the youth had no leaders to emulate and that is why they are behaving poorly.
The host then opened the conversation to the public. Some of the comments are below;
He is the same person who posted about Raila becoming the president either by ballot or by bullet – A woman said.
Babu just showed us the type of leaders we have – A woman said.
What if Nancy Barasa’s case happened today? She wouldn’t go home. The Jubilee government has failed Kenyans. In Kibaki’s government things used to work but under Jubilee things are very different – A man said.
Babu is at peace because he has supported the handshake and thinks it will keep him safe – A man said.
Whom can we run to when the leaders we support behave like this – A man said.
What do you expect when the government doesn’t adhere to court orders? – A man asked.
We have to stop voting for politicians but for leaders. I have been a victim before. Someone prominent tried to shoot me at Whisky River. I dodged a bullet – A man said.
In the 80’s one senior officer came into a bar in Ng’ong and shot his wife dead on the counter. This has been going on for a long time. You only become popular when you become a gangster – A man said.
Why do drinking joints allow people with guns anymore? – A woman asked.
Kenya ni kwa wenye pesa na wenye jina. Even when you go to prison, you can’t find rich people – A woman told Mr. Kageni.
Maina Kageni and Mwalimu King’ang’i spoke about the trending topic that has consumed Kenyans over the weekend. The topic being Babu Owino’s recent gun drama that took place on Friday.
Maina had tweeted a cautionary message to the Embakasi East Mp telling him he should pray that the DJ he had allegedly shot should survive.
King’ang’i who brought up the topic gave his opinion on the whole kerfuffle saying that even if Babu was able to win in court, karma would get him. “I saw that you (Maina) told him something very important. Even if he wins in court. There will be karma,” King’ang’i said.
Mwalimu added, “When you are a politician, you don’t need to carry guns, the people who represent you are your guns.”
This prompted a fiery response from Mr. Kageni who said, “How can you even do that? Babu is crazy. That ni**a is crazy. One tweet online was very deep. It read, ‘He shot that guy so calmly you wondered whether he has killed before’.”
Maina finished off by saying asking Babu whether he thought the system would protect him. “One word for Babu Owino. Do you think the system will protect him from screaming BBI? That is the craziest thing I have seen in a long time.”
Listeners then called in with their views and opinions on the topic. Some of those opinions are below;
He is allowed to holster a gun in the club but we can’t carry our drinks there -A man said.
What goes around, comes around -A woman said.
Babu had a grudge with the Dj. The government has to seek justice. Hii ni kiburi because he is an MP and he knows the law -A man said.
The system might protect you but the blood will haunt you -A man said.
