‘Don’t be bothered by people’s lives,’ Zari slams haters after Diamond stepped up

Diamond ex-Zari Hassan has a new luxurious car which she posted a few days ago.

She then thanked her baby daddy, Diamond Platnumz for helping her purchase it.

She wrote,

“ASANTE BABA T FOR THE TOP-UP,.”

Her daughter Princess Tiffah was later recorded thanking her dad for her mum’s car.

Well, Zari has come out to let people know that it was a ‘top-up’ and that Diamond didn’t completely buy the car for her.

“The ‘top-up’ thing has brought issues. Top-up is a contribution, it’s not that he bought me the car.”

She went on to slam haters asking them to mend their relationships with their baby daddies asking them if the language is a problem to them.

“Is language your problem or your brains are just small? Don’t be bothered by anyone’s life. We all have 24 hours. Use them wisely or mend your baby daddy relationships so that you are given even a Vitz.”

She added that behind any successful woman there is a bunch of lazy men and women asking who she slept with.

Exclusive: Pastor Kanyari speaks about his wedding and plans to have more kids

Pastor Kanyari is single and ready to mingle ladies!

Speaking to Classic 105, he says that after his separation with gospel singer Batty Bayo, the spirit of getting another wife has not visited him, yet!

Yaani, he says he sees so many women, but he says he has not yet decided to get hooked to one.

“This is a journey and the spirit of getting married has not entered me but when it does, I will think about it. I am still single and ready to mingle,” he said.

Pastor Kanyari

Kanyari has two children he is raising with his ex-wife and he says he loves them to bits.
But guess what, Kanyari says that if he gets married again, he will get more kids.

“Like six of them. I will give birth until when God will say that is enough.”

His marriage with Betty hit the rock after his scandalous TV exposee a few years ago.

He says that he is okay and has no regrets.

His advice on love to people is that they should not take love matters so seriously.

“Ukiachwa achika. Otherwise, depression is there. If she was not your destiny, then let her go and stop begging for their love. If she stays, it’s okay,” he said.

He urges people to always take care of their children.

“I respect separation but don’t neglect children. Take care of them and support them and give the woman a chance to get someone else to love her. She might get a ‘Jesus’ or a saint,” he said.

On whether he has any regrets, Kanyari says;

“I don’t regret it, just that I love my children so much but I can’t regret that we separated. Let her look for a Mzungu, when they die she will come looking for you,” he said.

On when he is opening his church, he says he will officially announce to his congregation.

Birthday loading! Kambua celebrates her son as he turns 11 months

Gospel singer Kambua is a happy mum after her son turned 11 months today.

The mother of one shared a sneak pic of her son’s chunky legs and captioned it,

“My chunky legs turns 11 months today 🎉 God’s been so good to us. So good! 💝👶🏾
#mamanate

The mother of one has been documenting the journey of her miracle baby since the day she unveiled her pregnancy last year.

In previous posts, Kambua says her baby is a miracle.

The mother of one had been childless for over seven years of her marriage.

‘I conceived after not being able to for a long time’, singer Amani speaks after giving birth

She explained how grateful she is through an Instagram post.

“The encounters I have had with Him are all priceless. When the pain was gut-wrenching and my heart nearly drowned in tears, I never stopped believing that God would come through for me (whichever way He chose to),” she wrote.

“And as I hold my toto today, I am reminded that God gives good gifts. My baby Nathaniel is a miracle. He is, as my husband likes to say, a world-changer and a history-maker. And I believe His life will continue to bring glory to God.”

She encouraged those who are childless to remain calm.

“As you wait, my tent remains pitched right next to yours, in the land of hope. I haven’t crossed over alone. We will cross together, leaving no one behind. None of us shall be left drowning in despair. Our stories, regardless of how they unfold, will be beacons of hope along ancient paths,” she wrote.

Kambua explained how she was constantly asked when she will get a child.

“The reason it angers me is that people don’t even know what your journey is like. They don’t know what you’re struggling with,” she said.

“They don’t know if you even want to have children. They don’t know if you can have children and there are so many people, especially today, who are struggling with infertility. It’s so unfortunate that we become such a culture of being so intrusive and putting people down.”

 

I was scared…I got angry…I was devastated-Burale narrates about Covid-19 diagnosis

Covid-19 is real people! While many Kenyans might have become jaded about the pandemic, many celebrities that we like and maybe care about are experiencing the disease first-hand.

After Musa Otieno’s infection a few weeks ago, Robert Burale is the latest celeb to suffer the consequences of the dangerous flu.

The pastor and motivational speaker revealed this sad news himself on his Facebook page. Burale expained that he had developed breathing complications on Wednesday last week.

He was rushed to Nairobi Hospital, where he was tested for Covid-19 and the results turned out positive. He said that he had been waiting for President Uhuru Kenyatta’s announcement to share details of his situation.

His sad, long and inspiring monologue is below:

THE battle belongs to the Lord …

So I waited for the president to give his speech before I put up my post ..Now that the country is opened..I owe it to family, friends and people I love this information…Above all, everything we go through Is for Gods glory..

Last week Wednesday I(after recording an FB program that airs of Fridays)was struggling to breath and rushed to Nairobi Hospital where I was tested for Covid-19 (the doctor in the PPE was the most intimidating thing at that moment) 24 hours later the results were out…

The doctor walks in to the isolation room and she says “Hello Mr Burale your results are out,” and I reply “So I can go home” ..she says, “Unfortunately you have tested positive for Covid and we have to now take you to the isolation ward.” A lot went through my mind …I was scared….I got angry….I was devastated…Then I worried for my daughter (thank God she is perfectly okay)…

Burale praying
Burale praying

Well Ladies and Gentlemen, still in shock, you are taken to a treated lift. It opens for you and you are briefed, “When the lift opens you will find somebody waiting for you” and I find a gentleman dressed in the full PPE…(this I only see in movies )…Kudos to Nairobi Hospital…..He immediately calmed me down and walked me to the bed…..As I walked through I saw grown men fighting for their lives …I was scared …VERY SCARED

For two days I fought for my life under the great care of the Doctors and Nurses at Nairobi Hospital….I saw the Hand of God…My progress is good ..My vitals are responding well…

FOR anyone who thinks this thing is a joke ..May the Lord have mercy on you ..I gathered courage and called a few people who have tirelessly prayed for me …and sent encouraging messages ..

Please guys be careful…Where did I get it ? Your guess is as good as mine …I wish I knew..

I have seen the Doctors and Nurses work so hard to keep people alive …Please remember these frontline warriors in prayer ..Encourage them…

The food is served wrapped securely….Opening your food to eat is like opening a bank vault and for a Luhyia like me, Time is of the essence..Visitors strictly not allowed….This is my first taste of power …Security is as tight as that of the president…

Please be careful..

The battle is the Lords ..We shall overcome

The Comedian claims that he was making up to Kshs. 300,000 at the job.

“This one day I’m supposed to host comedian Njugush but I did not appear,” he said.

Instead of going to work, he passed somewhere had some drinks and before he knew it, he had missed the show.

“The girl I was with at the time cheered me on,” he said.

He added that by the time he was getting back to his senses, he found that Njugush had decided to ‘interview himself’.

To save his job, Masanduku sought the services of a medical doctor around Ngara area in Nairobi to give him a leg cast which would demonstrate a supposed injury to the leg.

His employer was tired and so he could not listen to him, they knew he was out drinking.

“Even if you come here in an ambulance, you are not professional. We all drink and we knew you were drunk. You are the most stunning comedian but the drink will be the end of you,” he said

The crazy and bizarre traditions associated with Kenyans

The moment you realize how many of these bizarre traditions Kenya has, you will realize why Kenya is not only unique, its also full of weird traditions .

Having 42 tribes in Kenya, it also means that cultures between the tribes are different and we will tell you why.

Here are some of the bizarre cultures Kenya has.

1. Communities that kill twins

In the past, some communities would dump twins or triplets in the forest or immediately kill them .

This was because bearing of twins was considered evil and the mother would then be made to attend a cleansing ritual to put out the evil.

In some communities in Kenya still practice this away from the hawk eye whereby they still believe that first born twins or more children for that matter are an omen.

In addition to this, children whoa re also born already having teeth, those  born with their feet first, children born with both the female and male private parts and boys born with one testicle are also  considered as bad omen.

2. Wife Inheritance

This is a tradition that has been there among some communities in Kenya.

Women are usually forced to remarry to the family of the deceased. In many cases it is the brother of the deceased who inherits the widow and provides for her.

This is a tradition that is not common to the rest of the world.

 3. Sleeping with dead bodies before funeral

Have you ever heard that in the past, customs required widows in the community to sleep in the same room with their dead husbands before burial?

Well, reportedly, this was part of a cleansing ritual to purify such women in readiness for inheritance.

These are some of the old customs that may have been put aside but old habits die hard as you might find some of these habits continue to happen in the rural most remote areas in some of these communities.

 4. Night running

The nocturnal practice of running around communities is carried out across Kenya’s Western region.

The main purpose of night running or what the night runners do is , run naked and terrify people.

Night runners in Kenya term it as a sport.

5. Death in the forest

In nomadic communities, the sick or aged were not allowed to die in the home.

Instead, they were removed and taken into the forest, hillside or lay abandoned by the river.

A certain belief in a future life is indicated by burial of a calabash of milk beside the corpse and by the fact that the name of the departed is never mentioned lest the spirit should regard it as a call and come back.

This may be a tradition that still continues to happen with these communities.
