In an interview with this writer, the singer revealed he was the one who organized the baby shower for his wife.

“I planned the baby shower myself and invited her workmates and a few of my relatives. That has not happened again, it is always the other way, but I chose to organize it myself because I wanted it to be private.

I did not even call our friends because I knew, atajua ata before the day itself.”

That is odd, Right? he said;

“I am the one who knows her, I know what she likes and what she does not like.”

Although no one knows her exact age it is argued she is in her late thirties or early forties, which she is embracing so well, she knows how to dress her body without over doing it and we love it.

With the current generation where people are dying to show off skin, Sheila dresses with the intention of letting team mafisi imagine what’s hidden under the beautiful figure hugging dresses.

Can Marriage To An Older Woman Last? Maina Kageni Poses

Prince Harry’s marriage to Meghan Markle, who is older than him, seems to have elicited a debate on whether a marriage to an older woman can work.

Meghan was once married to film producer Trevor Engelson emerged before being with Harry.

The interest in Meghan is because she is older than Harry, is a divorcee, and it’s also claimed that she deleted the phrase “To Obey Till Death “from her marriage vows.

meghan3

On the morning discussion hosted by Maina Kageni  on Classic 105, callers gave their view on what they think about marriage or relationships with older  women, with most arguing that there is nothing wrong with dating an older woman

“Who said older women don’t deserve love, and who told you that they don’t need anything between the sheets?”one listener posed.

Another called argued that marrying an older man//woman is not an issue and that it all depends on how the two get along

For a long time, marrying an older woman has always been frowned upon given the fact that an older woman is not easy to control unlike marrying a young woman,who is easy to tame, something that is not yet proven.

One caller who seemed to disagree with the idea of marrying older women  argued that “There is a problem when a woman is older than you. When it comes to matters of love, intimacy and marriage do not touch an older woman even with a 10 foot pole”

uganda1

Another male caller argued that an older woman is more likely to get a young man for the fact that old women are loaded with cash. The bomb dropped when a caller admitted to having dated a woman 16 years older than him for 8 years. He said,” It is better to  marry a mature person, someone older than you. I dated a woman 16 years older than me and we lasted for 8 years,we only split up because something came up in between”.

He added “Given a chance I would not mind getting back with her, it’s only that she is no longer in the country, I miss her very much, we had mutual respect for each other “.

Listen to the audio below for a recap of the interesting conversation.

Wema Sepetu and Diamond Platnumz’ photos light up the internet

Once upon a time power couple, Wema Sepetu and Diamond Platnumz were inseparable.
Inspite of  breaking up a few years ago, they’re still best friends and Wema is still supportive of Diamond.

A day ago during the launch of a new programme for Wasafi TV in Tanzania, Wema Sepetu was among the guests who graced the event and she was in high spirits.

The former beauty queen, who’s currently concentrating on acting and her lipstick business, took photos with Diamond Platnumz and went ahead to post them on Instagram and tagged the singer.

This left many wondering whether they were back together, but they’re just friends. In a previous interview Wema said:

“WE HAVE NEVER HAD BEEF. WHEN OUR RELATIONSHIP ENDED, PEOPLE CREATED STORIES THAT WE HATED EACH OTHER BUT WE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN ON GOOD TERMS. WE HAVE MOVED ON AND WE ARE HAPPY. I RESPECT HIS LIFE AND HE DOES THE SAME, WHICH IS A GOOD THING. WE HAVE MATURED, PEOPLE WILL ALWAYS TALK, BUT WE ARE JUST FRIENDS.”

Tanzanian crooner too revealed that there’s no bad blood between them and are still friends who support each other.

“WEMA SEPETU AND I COMMUNICATE A LOT ON PHONE. WE ALSO MEET UP TIME AND AGAIN, BUT AWAY FROM THE PRESENCE OF THE MEDIA OR PEOPLE’S KNOWLEDGE. WE HAVE REALLY MATURED. EACH OF US IS CONCENTRATING ON HIS OR HER RELATIONSHIP. SHE HAS HER OWN FAMILY. BUT THE NATURE OF OUR RELATIONSHIP IS PURELY HINGED ON ELEVATING EACH OTHER’S BUSINESS. THAT EXPLAINS WHY WEMA HELPED ME COME UP WITH THE CATCHPHRASE ‘THE SCENT YOU DESERVE FOR MY FRAGRANCE LINE.”

On the other hand, Diamond Platnumz’ mother and his baby mama Hamisa Mobetto do not see eye-to-eye.

Recently, the Tanzanian crooner’s mother beat the socialite like a burukenge and she has vowed to teach her a lesson whenever she steps at her home.

“HAYO MAMBO YA MZAZI MWENZIE NI HUKO, PALE MADALE NI KWANGU NA SIMTAKI NYUMBANI KWANGU KABISA.YAANI KIUFUPI SIMPENDI NA SIMTAKI NA KILA AKIKANYAGA HAPA KWANGU NI KIPIGO TU.ALIPOKUJA KIWIZI USIKU ULE NA KULALA NYUMBANI KWANGU, ALIPASWA KUONDOKA KABLA SIJAMUONA KWA NINI ALISUBIRI MIMI NIMKUTE MAANA SIKU HIYO ASUBUHI YAKE NILITOKA NA NILIVYORUDI NDIPO NIKAMKUTA.”

Diamond Platnumz mother further revealed that Hamisa insulted her during an interview with a local media house and she was hurt. She claimed she was trolled on social media and she wasn’t happy.

“KWANZA SIO WIFE MATERIAL. HAJUI KUTANDIKA KITANDA HATA KUFANYA USAFI NI MWANAMKE TU AMBAYE NI SHIDA.”

SIMPENDI HAMISA NA SITAKI AKANYAGE NYUMBANI KWANGU. LAKINI KAMA DIAMOND ATAENDELEA NA HAMISA HUKO NJE SIO MADALE.

Diamond Platnumz’ mother is still in good terms with Zari and when asked about her relationship with her daughter-in-law she said;

“ZARI NAMHESHIMU. NI MWANAMKE AMBAYE NDIYE WA KWANZA KABISA KUMFANYA MWANAGU AITWE BABA. NITAENDELEA KUMHESHIMU NA KUMPA HESHIMU KWA KILE ANASCHOSTAHILI.

9 things Kenyan girls can learn about family members from Meghan Markle’s experience

From the salty half-sister to a drunken half brother, Meghan Markle’s story is relatable to many.

A list of what the family members of Duchess of Sussex said about her in the day leading up to the royal wedding upset many.

We were all caught in our feeling, blaming them for being jealous, but I believe it’s a similar experience Kenya women (though not marrying a Prince) have gone through.

They were all over the press saying controversial things about her.  A couple of relatives have revealed that they have not been invited to the royal wedding and have said that they haven’t seen Markle in years. Others have been open about their turbulent relationship with her.

But what can Kenyan women learn from this. This post on Facebook about living your best life has been shared severally and should inspire us. Read below.

 

The royal wedding happened and it was beautiful, yes i enjoyed it, nothing wrong with feeling joy over someone else happiness, its not seeking validation, I mean its not that deep. But that’s neither here nor there, just some pointers I feel should be more embraced.

1. Its okay to cut off toxic relatives, the homily blood is deeper than water, has entrenched knee deep in messy family relations that strangulation itself. How many of us have had our lights diffused because of them.

2. We don’t want to leave bad relationships because we are afraid of what people would say. Lol , Meghan out here with her dirty linen hung by her so called friends and relatives, but she still moved on . I mean they sold stories some of them false but did she die?

3. The trolling in these streets of single moms …..shwee, there is Meghan acclaimed actress, feminist , humanitarian , looks like shes a wonderful person the daughter of a single mom. Thats who she took to her wedding . Throw out the whole single moms children CANNOT narrative.

4. Divorce is not a death sentence, nyef nyef she’s a divorcee, there she is ……give life or even love a second chance . You never know …..look at Meghan living her best life now.

5. Imagine if Meghan had been watching War Room and reading fascinating Womanhood ……….

6. Don’t let anyone tell you that you’re too old to get married , too old to walk down the aisle, that 5 years age gap is too much, blah blah…..Meghan just trashed that story on the full glare of the world

7. Meghan just held a blackity blackity black wedding …..Wakanda Forever. Did you hear that Black Bishop …yes tell em, or the choir ? or the Boy who made me fall in love with the cello, or the this little light of mine rendition, I swear I heard some ariririri somewhere. What am I saying even in the whitest of whiteness, Meghan was authentic enough to acknowledge her blackness, You don’t have to struggle to fit in , to prove anything . Start living your life.

8. Being broken doesn’t mean its over, if you give yourself a chance to heal and replenish, renew and refresh, guess what you can have it all even love.

9. People will always have something to say either negative or positive you alone have the power to rise above your circumstances, naysayers be damned.

Meghan wasn’t waiting for a prince to rescue her, nah she was already living her life. So go out there and live your best life NOW.

Baby News: Real Housewives Of Atlanta actress expecting first child with Kenyan husband

I can’t get enough of the cast of the Real Housewives of Atlants. Shamea Morton who is married to Kenyan Gerald Mwangi have announced they are expecting their first child together.

She announced the news at her 36th birthday party in Atlanta, which actually fell on Mother’s Day. She celebrated all of her blessings with the help of Williams, Burruss and Sheree Whitfield, as well as with family.

“I am due around Thanksgiving” Morton told Us Weekly at the party. “God has blessed me so much. I’ve got a great husband that I love so much. I’ve got awesome, awesome friends and family. The only thing I can ask if for a healthy baby.”

Morton said she kept her pregnancy news under wraps, but that didn’t mean her friends didn’t have a clue something was up.

“No one knew except my husband and my sister,” she said. “Porsha was trying to give me Hennessy, I was telling her I was waiting for my birthday to drink. She knew I was lying, she was like, ‘B—h you are pregnant.’”

shameamortonandgerald

Morton and Mwangi tied the knot in Nanyuki, Kenya, in July of 2017 and said they would announce the sex of their child on their anniversary. She has no preference when it comes to the child’s gender. She is just grateful for the opportunity to be a mom.

“I never thought I was one of those people who would say I don’t care what sex, I just want a healthy baby, but now I really don’t care. We just want a healthy baby,” Morton told Us. “I want two kids and my husband wants five. I joke with him and tell him you are going to do a lot of love making to have five.”

Congratulations to the happy couple on their growing family.

Just Married! Harry and Meghan exchange rings as they marry in a star-studded ceremony

Meghan Markle has married Prince Harry in a modern and moving service that saw the newlyweds sharing tears, laughter and a passionate kiss in front of their thousands of adoring guests.

meghan.gown1

Harry was visibly emotional when he saw his bride for the first time in her simple but beautiful pure white dress and then grabbed his bride’s hand and told her: ‘You look amazing – I missed you’.

He also said ‘thank you, pa’ after his father Prince Charles walked her down the aisle of St George’s Chapel, Windsor.

Serena Williamns

But the tears turned to laughter when the star made him giggle as they exchanged vows before being pronounced man and wife by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby in an extraordinarily moving ceremony watched by millions around the world.

Celebrity royalty including the Clooneys, the Beckhams, Idris Elba, Elton John and Oprah Winfrey are among some of the world’s biggest stars watching them marry.  Britain’s royals including the Queen and Prince Philip were also there to support them.

The service had a distinctly American feel with a US bishop delivering a passionate address that appeared to make some royals snigger and a gospel choir filling the chapel with music. But there was also much of the great British pageantry that royal fans around the world love.

Outside St George’s Chapel up to 100,000 fevered well-wishers have gathered in glorious British sunshine and cheered the couple as they started their new married life in the grand Ascot Landau carriage.

The newlyweds emerged from St George’s Chapel to loud cheers from the crowd.

Stopping at the top of the stone steps, the pair shared a kiss to the delight of onlookers.

The couple were waved off and watched by members of the royal family as they left in an open-top Ascot Landau for a carriage procession through Windsor.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte, the oldest children of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, did not follow Harry and Meghan as they made their way back up the aisle.

Instead, the youngsters held their parents’ hands as they made their way out of the chapel.

Mike Tindall was seen rubbing heavily-pregnant wife Zara’s bump as the congregation waited for Harry and Meghan to sign their register.

Mr and Mrs Tindall are expecting their second child.

Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland smiled at the Prince of Wales and took his hand as they joined the newlyweds in one of the chapel’s transepts to privately record their marriage.

There was a hush around the chapel as the wedding ceremony began and the crowds listened intently as the Dean of Windsor, David Connor, started proceedings.

The silence was only broken by the rumble of aircraft passing overhead and the odd champagne cork popping.

The crowd in Horseshoe Cloister shouted a resounding ‘We will’ as the Archbishop of Canterbury posed the question inside St George’s Chapel as to whether the families and friends of Prince Harry and Meghan would support them in their marriage.

Yvonne Khamati

The couple met at a Lebanese restaurant in Nairobi were Yvonne was on a dinner date with her friends, when another friend called them to join their table.

Tumechoka: This is why 99% of Kenyans who file for divorce are women

A report from the Chief Kadhi’s court shows 99 per cent of people who file for divorce are women.

Most of the cases are on grounds of maintenance, where the husband no longer takes care of his wife and children.

The other is desertion, where the man just walks out on his family and his whereabouts are unknown.

Kenya’s Chief Kadhi Ahmed Mohdhar said divorce cases these days have increased because people have renounced the culture of getting advice on marriage responsibilities before making this important commitment. Speaking on Wednesday he said in the past, culture guided people and they were trained on the importance of marriage.

Mohdhar said a third of people who get married get divorced.

The Chief Kadhi said some divorces are brought about by the perception that marriage is just about the wedding day celebrations.

“People should not have the perception that marriage is only the wedding, which involves partying. They have to be told that it is a long-term commitment,” he said.

Mohdhar said divorce hurts children and pushes some of them to crime. “A child raised by a single parent is not the same as the one raised by both parents,” he said.

Mohamed Suleiman, a Mombasa Kadhi, said to save marriages, Kenya should adopt Indonesia’s approach to pre-marriage counselling.

“In Indonesia, when one is about to get married, they are taken for a one-month training,” he said.

This, Suleiman said, helps couples know their responsibilities and reduces divorce cases.

He said divorces have increased at about the same rate as marriages.

Some rare divorce cases filed in the Kadhis’ Court, include those on the ground of lack of sexual satisfaction in marriage.

Meghan Markle breaks her silence over royal wedding fiasco to confirm her dad will NOT be attending

Meghan Markle has confirmed that her father will not walk her down the aisle as it was claimed she is still ‘tearful and embarrassed’ on the eve of her royal wedding.

Thomas Markle is in hospital after heart surgery after he embarrassed his daughter by doing a cash deal for ‘staged’ paparazzi photographs.

After days of silence Meghan has been forced to make a personal statement to millions around the world and said: ‘Sadly my father will not be attending our wedding. I have always cared for my father and hope he can be given the space he needs to focus on his health’.

She added: ‘I would like to thank everyone who has offered generous messages of support. Please know how much Harry and I look forward to sharing our special day with you on Saturday’.

Her poignant words came as thousands watched a wedding rehearsal in Windsor today.

Prince Harry’s bride-to-be, 36, has still only shared texts with Thomas Markle but has told him she loves him and forgives him for the scandal he caused on the eve of the biggest day of her life.

Her father is said to be ‘alone and upset’ in hospital after having three stents put in his heart.

The 73-year-old has spoken to TMZ journalist Sean Mandell from his bed overnight and he said: ‘Meghan was embarrassed and tearful in private. She is holding up, from what I’ve been told. It has been a tearful and a trying time for her’.

When asked if their relationship can recover he said: ‘I do get the sense he [Thomas] does want to be reunited with Meghan. She’s no stranger to having to deal with hard moments in her life’.

Mr Markle may not be discharged before his daughter’s wedding after he had three stents implanted in arteries following a heart attack at home in Mexico eight days ago.

He said: ‘It will take a long time to heal. I’m okay. Staying in the hospital a few more days. Not allowed to get excited’.

Mr Markle is highly unlikely to travel to the UK so his ex-wife Doria is set to give away their daughter at St George’s Chapel on Saturday.

Today a wedding rehearsal is planned in Windsor but Kensington Palace is yet to comment on the extraordinary turmoil in Meghan’s family.

Mr Mandell told Good Morning Britain: ‘She [Meghan] called him Monday when the story first broke. But he did not have his phone on him and then she text him saying she loved him, that she was concerned over his health and bore him no ill will over the controversy of the fake photos.

‘He [Thomas] told us we wanted to be there and had a change of heart on Tuesday after speaking with Meghan over text and he felt he had pulled out prematurely.

‘He had originally felt it would be better for him not to be at the wedding because it would cause further embarrassment, he thought, for the royal family, and for Meghan, which is the last thing he wanted.

‘He realised, I’m a father, and I want to be there for my daughter, and I want to be part of history.Ultimately his health prevented him from being able to do that.

‘But ultimately his health prevented him from doing that’.

He added: ‘Meghan is by all accounts is a very strong women. From what Thomas has told me there’s just love being conveyed there and a gentle approach between them when they speak.’

Meghan’s mother Doria was given VIP treatment when she landed at Heathrow yesterday and is expected to give her daughter away in her father’s absence.

Mr Markle said his doctors needed to ‘go in and clear blockage, repair damage, and put a stent where it is needed’ during the operation.

His daughter Samantha, who has a poor relationship with Meghan, claims her father is ‘upset and alone’ following his surgery.

But there is some confusion over his care as sources close to the Markle family told the Mail yesterday that Mr Markle had already been diagnosed with a heart condition and was due to undergo planned surgery to fit a stent, the same operation Prince Philip underwent in 2011, early next week – on his return from London.

Miss Markle’s nephew, Tyler Dooley, has said he hopes his grandfather will travel but said: ‘We’ll just have to wait and see.’

Nairobi DCI chief Ireri Kamwende said Wangui was hit by the bullets in the chest and stomach.

Officers from the Ruai DCI released a preliminary investigations report indicating Muthee and Wangui had known each other for barely a month.

Muthee is said to have left college last year and was recently transferred to Ruai AP camp.

According to the report, Muthee was a frequent visitor to Wangui’s M-Pesa shop and was therefore known to other business operators in the area.

Wangui is said to have turned down Muthee’s overtures, but the two were in talking terms.

The report said Muthee was heading to the AP camp at 8pm on Monday when he met Wangui.

They spoke briefly and Wangui walked back to her shop. It is then that the officer followed her and shot her before turning the gun on himself.

“AT ONE POINT, MUTHEE WAS OVERHEARD SHOUTING THAT WANGUI WAS IN ANOTHER RELATIONSHIP,” THE REPORT SAYS.

An ex boyfriend of Ruth has taken to his social meida to mourn her and pay tribute to her.

Willy Maina who was Ruth’s high school sweetheart in Muranga put up an angry post castigating her untimely death.

It read:

“The AP officer Geoffrey Muthee who did this hell act, tried to commit suicide but he is at hospital receiving treatment. I wish he dies, a coward man. Does he think was the 1st man to meet Ruth? He will suffer imprisonment life 4eva..Sh*t!!!!!”

Serena Williams’s dad backed out of her wedding an hour to the ceremony

Serena Williams has earned her spot as one of the greatest athlete’s of all time thanks in large part to her adaptability on the court, where she managed to overcome unforeseen obstacles match after match.

That ability also serves her off the court as well it seems, and came in handy on her wedding day when she got what many brides would consider the worst possible news.

On the third episode of the HBO docuseries Being Serena, which airs on Wednesday night, viewers will get to see the moment that Serena received a text from her father Richard saying that he could not attend the wedding while in the midst of doing a photo shoot for Vogue.

She received that text just one hour before Richard was set to walk her down the aisle, and the image of her in wearing her stunning Alexander McQueen wedding dress was published by the magazine.

This of course is coming just as Serena heads to London where she will watch her friend Meghan Markle walk down the aisle, possibly going it alone as well just like the tennis great.

Alexandra Macon, who covered the wedding for Vogue, said on Wednesday that Serena never said anything about that text or her father’s absence – until now.

‘I can only imagine how all over the place her emotions must have been, but she radiated a sense of calm, even when things went wrong,’ Macon wrote in a post on Vogue.com ahead of the episode.

‘Unbeknownst to me at the time, her father and longtime coach, Richard, texted her an hour before the wedding was supposed to start, saying that he didn’t feel comfortable walking her down the aisle.’

Serena sounded just as calm and collected about the disappointing news when retelling the story of what happened for her HBO series.

‘He was in New Orleans, he had a suit, and I know he was really excited,’ explained Serena.

‘But then he wrote me and said: “Serena, I don’t want you to be mad at me, but I just can’t walk you down the aisle. I’m not myself anymore. I’m just too nervous.”‘In that moment Serena did not get angry at her father or start feeling sad for herself, choosing instead to comfort the man.

‘Daddy, it’s okay, if you don’t want to come to the wedding at all, that’s okay too. I’m not going to be upset with you about it, so I don’t want you to be upset about it,’ responded Serena.

She then offered viewers a rare look inside her mind as she broke down her thought process in that moment

‘Maybe a lot of daughters wouldn’t react the same way, but I know the struggles he’s had these last few years. His health is better now, but I know he still doesn’t feel like himself, doesn’t feel like he’s perfect,’ said Serena.

‘And if he doesn’t want to be up there in front of a lot of people, I completely understand. Look, when we first came on the scene, there were a lot of people who didn’t get him. I don’t think a lot of them wanted to get him. I don’t think a lot of him could have anyway.’

She then added: ‘Our family knows what we have. We just want each other to be happy. That’s what matters. I don’t think anything could ever change that.’

DailyMail.com noted at the time that Richard was nowhere to be seen at the wedding, and the fact that he was going through a contentious split from his wife at the time.

Just days after the wedding, Richard filed a cyber stalking/stalking violence protective order against Lakeisha Williams, his 38-year-old estranged wife.

Court papers obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com revealed Richard’s petition, filed in Palm Beach County, Florida, was submitted along with a second suit brought on by his son Chavoita Lesane, who also accused his stepmother of the same offense.

Richard, who introduced his daughters to tennis and still serves as part of their coaching staff, filed for separation  in June of last year, accusing Lakeisha of stealing his social security checks and forging his signature to transfer his property to her.

Serena’s calm and collected attitude could be a result of motherhood, which she spoke about with Vogue earlier this year.

She was quick to admit that being a mother had been a challenge for her, comparing it to her time on the court.

‘Sometimes I get really down and feel like, Man, I can’t do this. It’s that same negative attitude I have on the court sometimes. I guess that’s just who I am,’ said Serena.

‘No one talks about the low moments – the pressure you feel, the incredible letdown every time you hear the baby cry.’

She then added: ‘I’ve broken down I don’t know how many times. Or I’ll get angry about the crying, then sad about being angry, and then guilty, like, Why do I feel so sad when I have a beautiful baby? The emotions are insane.’

In addition to Alexis, Serena is also getting help from her mom Oracene, who said she is concerned about her daughter’s work ethic.

‘She’s always been that way, ever since she was a little girl. She’s going to need to learn to slow down. She’s responsible for another life now,’ said Oracene, who is urging her daughter to be a strict parent.

‘You should see how they travel with that baby. They pack everything! It’s a bit extravagant for me. But once she’s back on the tour, she’ll find a balance.’

That baby will be living as normal a life as possible according to both parents.

‘She’s obviously going to have a very special life, but there are enough cautionary tales about kids who grow up in the spotlight,’ said her father.

‘How do you make your kid live in reality when your own reality is so . . . unreal? This kid is going to have more Instagram followers than me in about three weeks.’

Alexis OIympia currently has 332,000 followers on Instagram while her father has 306,000, but her Vogue cover should easily push baby ahead of father.
