‘Sponsors Wanakutumia Tu!’ Nyashinski Warns Girls In New Valentine’s Day Song

Nyashinski has dropped a touching song that addresses the ongoing sponsors vibe. The visuals are stunning and emotive, as they show what is going on in the current society.

He seems to be a principled guy, who avoids shortcuts to making quick money. Last year, he was accused of asking for cash to be interviewed, something he trashed, saying that would be detrimental to his career.

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Why Maina Kageni thinks Nyashinski will rule 2018

“It’s not true. Going for interviews helps my brand and my music. I can’t shoot myself on the leg, it doesn’t make sense, someone was given the wrong information. I’ve never asked for even a shilling. I’ve never asked for money to do interviews, those are just stories,” he said in an interview with The Star.

He feels the same when it comes to girls having sponsors. In his new song, he encourages women to support the people who truly love them, grow with them until they make it. That’s when they cane enjoy what they’ve worked on together.

Mafans nini? Sauti sol ready to lose some fans in 2018. Are you one of them?

Sauti Sol ended last year on a high. with their song Melanin setting records and fans demanding more from the boy band. They have had a lot of highs in their career. Even what many consider missteps by the group are actually signs of an evolving group with many moving parts.

But some don’t have the same viewpoint. As noted when they released their song Nishike and also the song Melanin. There was a certain clamour about the content of the music videos. I will not lie, I clamoured against Nishike. I watched the video for Nishike once and that was it for me. No, it wasn’t the naked bodies that did it for me, but my jealousy at not having the perfectly sculpted muscles the band had in the video. I admit, my hate for the song was for that purely juvenile reason but I stand by it! Damn it! Shaming team one-pack men like that! Disgraceful!

But the boy band have come out to say that 2018 may be a year where they lose fans, regain lost ones and gain new ones. They said this in a tweet that they posted on their social media. They said:

Sauti Sol

What does this mean for the direction of their music? I think this may mean that they may be doing a lot more of the stuff they did earlier on in their careers, a more Afro-centric vibe. But don’t count out some very experimental tunes from them. If I could stick with them through the scandal(hehe!) that was Nishike then I can stick with them through whatever is coming.

Bwana asifiwe! Snoop Dogg to release gospel music this year! Say what?

Snoop Dogg is no stranger to attempting new things in his life. The man who is best known for his career as a rap superstar has shown an affinity for trying his hand at things that most sane men would avoid. He puts the saying a jack of all trades but a master of none to the test.

Snoop Dogg

The man has evolved with the times, first by embracing the different changes in the rap music, always trying to stay relevant, just like another chameleon, Madonna. He then tried his hand at making reggae music even changing his moniker to Snoop Lion, when he did his album Reincarnated.

But that was not to be the last time we saw him veer into unfamiliar waters. He did it again by venturing into hosting a cooking show! The show was called the Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party which started airing on November 7, 2016. What are a weed aficionado and a convicted felon doing hosting a show about cooking?  And you think you had seen it all? Huh?

But Snoop isn’t done yet! What? He has now revealed that he intends to make new music that will be gospel-themed. During an interview with Billboard, Snoop (real name Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr) said:

“I have always wanted to try Gospel. This may surprise some people but all I gotta say is get ready for some good for your soul music in 2018! Ya know I’m always cookin’ up something. I’ll have some new projects for y’all in the New Year.”

Kumbuka zilizopendwa. ‘Lunchtime’ Hit Maker Gabriel Omollo Passes On After A Long Illness

For many youth and individuals below a certain age, zilizopendwa is an affectionate term that we use to refer to songs that were made in eons before our birth, or just at the cusp of our births. There are great for nostalgic feeling for a time that we may have never witnessed. Like the smell of a mature he-goat reminds you of shags or ushago for those more familiar with that terminology. Memories that are of a time of old, a time of simplicity, a time of lore.

This article deals with a man who made a song at such a time. The man in question is Gabriel Omollo famed for his hit Lunchtime. ‘Omollo Gabby’ died at Busia County Referral Hospital at about 9pm on Wednesday after a long illness. Omollo had initially been taken to a facility in Ugunja sub-county but his condition worsened.

The disease that caused the death of the 79-year-old had not been confirmed by press time. But the chairman of the Nyanza branch of the Music Copyright Society of Kenya, said he had kidney and liver complications. Tom Kodiyo noted Lunchtime and other songs including Mr Agoya, Maro Oketho and Ugunja were popular.

Despite his fame, he lived in abject poverty and once attempted a comeback. Omollo was born in 1939 and was raised at the railway quarters of Muthurwa and later in Makongeni, Nairobi. He learnt how to play the guitar while at St Peters Claver’s Primary School where he sang in the choir.

The musician’s career took off in the 1960s when he joined Equator Sound band alongside Fadhili William, Daudi Kabaka and Nashil Pichen. In 1974, he became the first Kenyan musician to be awarded an international gold disc after selling 150,000 copies of his ‘Lunchtime’ single.

 

Ugunja MCA and Siaya assembly Majority leader Peter Odero said Omollo was the most progressive musician in the region.

Here is his famous song:

Human Beings Are Very Selfish! Akothee Tells Her Fans

Singer Akothee is living the life she has always dreamt of as a young child growing up in the village and going through tough times to become who she has become now.

The Yuko Moyoni hitmaker is known for her flamboyant lifestyle that makes many people think she is just bragging and showing off whatever she has achieved in life.

Being a mother of five, Akothee has always protected her children and always give them the support they need as a mother and it has always been a job well done for her being a single mother.

akothee-porsche

Her love for farming and hard work is what brings food on her table in her palatial home, Mombasa County.

She has always been seen going to farm and it is an encouragement and inspiration to other musicians who think that going to farm is just a waste of time and getting oneself dirty.

akothee

She took to social media to show off her new project of making nurseries. In the photo, you can see her getting her hands dirty to show that she doesn’t leave all the work to her workers.

The Baby Daddy singer is one person who many look up to because she does not fake her lifestyle and always says things as they are.

Captioning a photo, Akothee said:

Akothee

“I only make financial moves, everyday is a learning lesson, every experience is a learning process , good or bad, don’t allow people use you for their own interests , not every offer is meant for you, human beings are very selfish, let me organise my life (new nursery establishment )”

Kibandaski Of All Places! Check Out Where DJ Mo Took Size 8 For Breakfast (Video)

The Murayas are a happy family. They were blessed with their bundle of joy, Ladasha Belle, who has made the family even happier. She checked into the Muraya household in 2015.

Both of them are Christians and its natural for their daughter to embrace Christianity while still a child and previously she was seen sharing a stage with her mother on the show she airs called Pambio Live.

A video has emerged of showing how DJ Mo who hosts TV show Cross Over 101 took his wife for breakfast at a very general public place which is not their standards anyway and they both seemed to enjoy themselves.

DJ Mo stated that they were going for a church meeting and his wife took a long time applying makeup and apparently they both had no breakfast. Since Size 8 was hungry, they had to look for a place to eat and the only place DJ Mo saw was a ‘kibanda’ or a kiosk where they ordered tea and chapo.

This Will Kill Zari, I Swear! Is Namibian Star Dilish Mathews Pregnant For Diamond?

Namibian star and 2013 Big Brother winner Dilish Mathew is pregnant. This will be another celebrity kid as many have speculated that Tanzanian star Diamond Platnumz is responsible.

Before Diamond was on the radio admitting that he impregnated a video vixen, he and Dilish were spotted having fun together in Zanzibar.

And yes, she is the woman rumoured to have broken Avril’s relationship with South African boyfriend.

News came in after paparazzi caught the two at the same luxury hotel but they were keen not to share photos of themselves together. The two however posted a similar photo that fueled the rumours.

When Diamond’s photographer shared a photo of his boss swimming at the beach, Zari responded with a middle finger…Is this prove that she might have known that her hubby was with someone else?

Hours later, the Namibian socialite wannabe was seen singing to Diamond’s love song titled Love You Die.

Dillish Mathews

Now, she just posted a photo of her baby bump and captioned:

“A baby or a burger?”

Diamond And Zari Are Back Together Even After He Admitted Cheating On Her Live On Radio (Photo Evidence)

However when asked about this Namibian girl, Diamond denied even meeting up with her:

“Habari za kukutana na Dillish Zanzibar sio za kweli, mimi nilikuwa Zanzibar kwa kazi zangu binafsi na nilikaa siku mbili nikarudi Dar pekee yangu. Sijaonana na huyu dada na wala sikuwa nae. Huo ni uzushi na ndio maana nilikuwa kimya kwenye hili.”

Dillish Mathews

It will be remembered that he had denied that Hamisa’s pregnancy was his and told her to tell people who the father was…On live radio!

But later admitted that he indeed cheated.

Singer Juveh Spills The Beans On What He Has Been Up to Since He Left Tusker Project Fame

Former Known Tusker Project Fame season four contestant Juvenalis Amonde is on the move after leaving TPF to becoming a Kenyan star and an actor. He also does jingles and voice overs

The Ndani Ndani hit maker is a father to Letisha and a husband. Always down to earth at the same time humble.

So, what has he been up to since he left the reality talent search show?

“I have been doing a lot of music and acting. I used to act in a programme at KBC and Maisha Magic. I do a lot of live bands, covering songs and performing at corporate functions. Being a husband and a father is a good feeling though it comes with challenges but its good. Music pays because that is what pays for my shelter,” Juveh said.

The Ndani Ndani song is based on his true love story from how he met with the love of his life and her decision to stay in his life. This is what motivated him to stick to the mother of his child who back then was a girlfriend and the two are so much in love.

Ever since the show ended, he has been keeping in touch with some of the contestants mostly Steve and Amelina and currently he is working with Doreen Nyawera who was also a contestant in the Tusker Project Fame season 5 to release a hit collabo.

Speaking on the issue about the show ending here is what he said:

“Inaweza kuwa poa karudi but they know why they had to exit. Pengine ni juu show ilianza kuenda chini ama walipata tu challenges zao. But ilikuwa ni platform poa juu walikuwa wanakuinua na wanakuwacha uendelee kujitafutia. The lesson i learnt ni kutake criticisms.”

Juveh has done jingles and voice overs including the IEBC song Chagua Kenya Unayoipenda and Bonyeza Bonyeza sometime back. He has a clothing line that designs jumpers and t-shirts with his logo and name.

Finally, Juveh said that he will be releasing two single songs titled Misunderstandings and Piki Piki Ponkey saying that  his motivation to writing his songs is life situations, what he has gone through in life and people close to him.

Check out his latest song:
