Lava Lava denies WCB exit

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”.

Ben Pol paid “hundreds of cows” for Anerlisa’s dowry

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”

‘I seduced Ben Pol,’ says ex girlfriend

“I told you I was pregnant,” Wahu remembers last moments with dad before death

” 7 years on….miss you, daddy. Miss your laugh, your phone calls, your advice, your prayers. I’m so glad we got to spend that last Christmas with you, and I got to tell you that I was pregnant with nyakio. I’m so glad we had that last family moment. Continue to rest in peace. Forever in my heart 💕🙏🏾,” wrote Wahu on Instagram

Gospel singer Martha Mwaipaja confirms split with hubby

Tanzanian gospel artiste Martha Mwaipaja has confirmed that she and her husband separated over what she termed betrayal. She said this in an interview with fellow singer Christina Shusho.

“I separated with my husband like two years ago. I am not there to try, I have already decided and people cannot be together if they don’t understand each other,” she said.

“Many married people nowadays are just living and not understanding each other. You will later find yourself giving birth to kids who don’t have grace.”

Asked whether it’s separation or complete divorce, she said, “I don’t have the time to just separate. We have lived together for so many years, and if you see that you are going to fall into a pit, there is no time to give each other time. That’s where you decide. I have done my decision. “

The two were blessed with a child, whom Mwaipaja says she has been taking care of since they parted ways

“I was the one who got myself in and also got myself out. Anyone who knows that person will clap for me, but whoever doesn’t know him will point fingers at me,” she said.

“I could have died. I thank God for protecting me from death and betrayal. He was a man of God and the churches he had have all been closed. If it’s not God, people might have buried me by now.”

The “Naiona Kesho” and “Nifundishe Kunyamaza” hitmaker says the making of these two songs was when she was at her lowest.

“A time reaches when you wish you could die or get lost, but when those words came to me, I was filled with Grace. If you see me crying, know that God has fought for me,” she said.

 “A message to women, if you see your knowledge has come to an end, don’t force it, you are calling death and don’t get out and go away from God. I encourage people through my songs and I know what pain is.

“Marriage should be respected by all, but the husband or wife should not make you wrong God.”

What you should know about liver cancer that Anjlee Gadhvi battled with

Hepatocellular carcinoma was the type of liver that late K24 news anchor Anjlee Gadhvi battled with.

Liver cancer begins in the cells of the liver.

Some of the symptoms include; Losing weight, appetite loss, abdominal pain, vomiting, fatigue, Abdominal swelling, discolouration of your skin and white stool.

RIP! Different celebrities mourn K24 TV presenter Anjlee Gadhvi

Diabetes, Aflatoxins, excessive alcohol are some of the factors that increase the chances of getting this killer disease.

According to the Mayo Clinic, factors that increase the risk of primary liver cancer include:

  • Chronic infection with HBV or HCV. Chronic infection with the hepatitis B virus (HBV) or hepatitis C virus (HCV) increases your risk of liver cancer.
  • Cirrhosis. This progressive and irreversible condition causes scar tissue to form in your liver and increases your chances of developing liver cancer.
  • Certain inherited liver diseases. Liver diseases that can increase the risk of liver cancer include hemochromatosis and Wilson’s disease.
  • Diabetes. People with this blood sugar disorder have a greater risk of liver cancer than those who don’t have diabetes.
  • Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. An accumulation of fat in the liver increases the risk of liver cancer.
  • Exposure to aflatoxins. Aflatoxins are poisons produced by molds that grow on crops that are stored poorly. Crops, such as grains and nuts, can become contaminated with aflatoxins, which can end up in foods made of these products.
  • Excessive alcohol consumption. Consuming more than a moderate amount of alcohol daily over many years can lead to irreversible liver damage and increase your risk of liver cancer.

Gadhvi passed away on 10th January 2020 – at 13:15 while undergoing treatment at the Aga Khan hospital.

Hilarious! Locusts memes and CS Kiunjuri go viral

Agriculture CS Mwangi Kiunjuri said insects being mistaken for desert locusts were long-horned variegated grasshoppers that have always existed. He asked Kenyans to take photos of insects they think are locusts so the ministry can help them identify whether they were locusts.

This was the topic of Netizens as Kenyans created memes about the issue.

Here some hilarious responses from Kenyans;

Sexual violence, pain behind teenage pregnancy

Nafula* (not her real name), 16, was raped by her 19-year-old boyfriend, who beat and dragged her to his house in Kakamega.The boyfriend capitalised on narrow village roads, tall vegetation and darkness when the sun was setting to take advantage of her.

“I didn’t want to have sex with him but he threatened to stab me. The man later surrendered to the police after I reported but was released three days later with no reason,” Nafula said.

Three weeks later, Nafula started experiencing nausea, dizziness, faintness, mood swings and morning sickness. The man, a boda boda rider, has kept off since 2017, when she gave birth.

“I didn’t go to the hospital or school until I gave birth,” she said.

Nafula is just one classic example among thousands of teenagers forced into motherhood through agonising experiences such as rape, defilement, intimidation and forced early marriage.

A report by civil society organisation Haki Jamii on ‘The right to education of pregnant girls’ and a series of interviews show that most victims failed to access medical attention and counselling, which leads to depression, health problems, lifetime psychological trauma, poverty or suicide.

“Many girls who have been defiled are at risk of serious health complications, stigma and discrimination,” Haki Jamii founder Pauline Vata said.

Vata said most vulnerable are girls from poor families.

SEXUAL VIOLENCE

Population Services International reproductive manager Joseph Mutweleli said sexual violence includes rape, defilement, early marriage, female genital mutilation, sexual exploitation and forced prostitution.

Mutweleli said 18 per cent of teenagers are victims of sexual violence hence already pregnant or mothers.

“Some communities force girls as young as 12 to get married. We have cases where people beat and force girls to do things they don’t know at their tender age,” Mutweli said.

A Kenya Legal and Ethical Issues Network (Kelin) report this year said adolescent mothers were experiencing extreme physical, sexual and mental health consequences.

These include unplanned pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, depression, trauma and anxiety.

Others are risky sexual behaviours, drugs and alcohol abuse, early marriage, early motherhood and unsafe abortion.

Child sexual exploitation and abuse, often committed by people whom victims know, often lead to early and unintended pregnancy.

Here are celebrities you didn’t know have teenage kids (List)

“Most cases we get happen within the family. But mothers often don’t report it because there’s a lot of fear about being stigmatised and getting divorced and being left,” Vata said.

Irene, whose daughter became pregnant, said she did not know she can report to police so the person who defiled her could be prosecuted.

Wanjiku* is part of the street families on River Road as a single mother after she was raped by a stranger she only knows by one name, Kama.

“He used to bring me food in the morning and I suspect he was from work. We could joke and play. One day he pulled me in that dark corridor (pointing) and forced me to have sex with him,” a teary Wanjiku narrates.

“And then we started enjoying sex frequently the following days.”

The light-skinned girl with black spots, who relies on well-wishers and dustbin contents to survive, said the tall, dark, composed and handsome man stopped passing by when she told him that her breasts have swollen and she was experiencing fatigue, vomiting and food cravings.

“Later I grew big and friends alerted me that I am pregnant. He was nowhere,” she said.

Wanjiku settled on the streets five years ago after her mother, the only parent she knew, was killed by robbers in Nakuru.

“I did not have a place to go since my close relatives didn’t even want to see me when my mother was still alive,” she said, sniffing her glue from one hand and holding her two-year-old light baby in the right hand.

“Men still take advantage of me since I am addicted to sex and I know I can get pregnant again or diseases,” she said.

Kelin warns that, “Sexual violence recognised as a public health and human rights issue is prevalent among adolescent girls.”

RIGHT TO EDUCATION

Josephine*, a pregnant girl who is lucky to remain in school, said she occasionally misses school because of tiredness.

“I want to carry on with education after I deliver because I want to be a science teacher. I’m afraid that after I deliver my mum will not support me to go back to school,” she said.

Mwende*, 15, said she missed out on three years of education after she got pregnant. Her classmate, Sharlene* (now 17), also missed out on two years of education.

Haki Jamii’s Vata said dropping out of school, and to a lesser extent having your education disrupted, means a girl cannot fully benefit from education.

“It affects a girl’s future, her ability to be independent, and it can push her into early marriage,” Vata said.

“For many girls who get pregnant, they feel shame because they believe they have done something wrong, even if the cause of their pregnancy is a form of sexual violence.”

The community regards teenage mothers’ parents as having failed when their daughters get pregnant at a tender age.

Emisiko said in 2017 she found out her daughter Muna* was seven months pregnant. Muna was so scared to tell her mother that she got her friend to do it for her. When Emisiko approached her daughter, the girl said she wanted to have an abortion but Emisiko refused.

Later, when Emisiko told her husband Muna was pregnant, he was upset and blamed Emisiko, telling her, “You’ve failed as a parent.”

The pregnancy caused such a massive rift between Emisiko and her husband that he refused to support the family and left for Nairobi, where he lives.

“We haven’t heard from him since,” Phelesa told Haki Jamii.

Adolescent mothers believe their teachers and schoolmates would treat them differently if they found out they were teenage mothers, which is true in most cases.

“I felt so ashamed. Everyone knew what had happened to me and I couldn’t face going back to school, despite pressure from everyone who knew me,” Nafula said.

Molested children really want to go back to school but stigma and lack of school fees pose a challenge.

“I have three friends who have all given birth, too, and they really encourage me to go back to school. But I have no one to help me look since my grandma is really busy with church,” Nafula said.

Nafula’s grandmother said she was heartbroken when she found out her granddaughter was pregnant.

“At first she wouldn’t tell me who did this to her but after being persistent, she eventually did. I actually feared to approach her since I was afraid she might commit suicide,” the grandmother said.

Vata said sexual violence victims often feel shame because of a belief that it is her own fault or because the sexual assault makes her a bad or damaged person.

This kind of a shame, although painfully felt as if it comes from within, is actually the product of stigmatisation.

“Girls blame themselves from their own vulnerability and victimhood and feel shamed,” Vata said.

Stigmatisation, which oftens leads to discrimination, can be so strong that sometimes family members turn a blind eye and make the decision not to report cases to the police.

“One of the key actions required to keep girls in schools is to dismantle harmful gender stereotypes and stigmatisation. It is believed that girls who have had sex, pregnant girls, and girls who have given birth are a ‘bad influence,” she said.

Most teachers want adolescent girls readmitted to school. However, there is no policy to support and protect adolescent mothers.

Only strong girls who accept the stigmatisation and the shame that comes along with it remain in school.

STRUGGLE TO RESUME STUDIES

“I got pregnant when I was 15. I ran away from home to be with my boyfriend [then 17].’ ‘He promised to get me a job,” Atieno* said in a Hakii Jamii report.

“When I left home to Kitale, there was no job and I was made to stay at home,” she said.

She ran away after staying home for five months and got a job as a house cleaner in Nyeri, where she gave birth to her daughter.

Her employer helped her take care of the baby but she knew this wasn’t a permanent solution. She reached out to her father, with whom she didn’t have a great relationship, who asked her to come back home so that he takes Atieno back to school.

She made it home just as the child’s teeth were coming through, which in the culture is a very important tradition.

“But my father got seriously ill and all the family’s money went towards paying his hospital bills, hence he failed to fulfil his promise of taking me to school,” she said.

He died, leaving her and her mother to look after the baby.

Jezebel* was lucky to access the government bursary and go back to school three years after she dropped out.

Grace Sande, a women’s rights activist and secretary at Pamazuko, said she knows a 16-year-old girl who was defiled by an older married man before she got married as a second wife.

“The girl in return gets food for living with him. When I asked the mother what happened, she accused me of being jealous. I reported the man to the local administration but he compromised them and he is free now,” Grace said.

Sande reported to police a case of a 15-year-old raped by her father after the mother travelled to Nairobi in search of a job.

“I took the girl to hospital but when they got back to the house, the father, 28, a mason, was not prosecuted. After a year of being married, she gave birth to a boy on April 22, 2019,” Grace told Haki Jamii.

RIP! Different celebrities mourn K24 TV presenter Anjlee Gadhvi

K24 news anchor Anjlee Gadhvi died on Friday 10th January 2020 – at 13:15 while undergoing treatment at the Aga Khan Hospital.

Gadhvi was battling with cancer hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) a type of primary liver cancer in adults, since 2014.

Celebrities have mourned her describing her as an Authentic Soul. Here are the messages of condolence from different Kenyan celebrities

Juliegichuru I am heartbroken 💔 Rest in peace sweetheart 💔

k_knaust Friendship is deep and powerful and amazing, but it is hard to really explain why. If you have a close friend you just know what I mean. No surprise, when a friend dies, like when a family member dies, we don’t “get over it”. We learn to live with it. It may get different, it may get easier, but it is always with us. #anjleegadhvi 🤎

Faithmuturingugi Noooooo!!! We just talked 2 days ago!! I can’t believe this! We talked juzi. She was okay!
_
A few days before we had such deep conversations. @anjleegadhvi was always so authentic. I asked how she was really doing and she said she was so grateful to be alive. We talked about life and death. She shared how she had been given a month or so to live and here she was 6 years later. That was last week.
_
She shared that she is more intentional about life, to live and to love. 2 days ago we talked about the youth of Kenya – she was so passionate about equipping youth to be patient and resilient and to have character.
_
Last week I asked her how she was really doing and she said ‘Faith, I have my days- some good, some bad. But now I’m tired. It’s been 6 years, I am tired of bring strong. I have prepared my children – you never know the day. We talked about taking it a day at a time.
_
Then she went on to console me concerning our loss. That was her – always thinking of the other person more.
_
We have talked more in the last week than in our entire friendship. We didn’t talk as often but when we did, it was meaningful. In the last week, she would call to follow up. In almost all our conversations, she would remind me to pray for her. More than once she said ‘Faith, I know that your prayers are so powerful’. We talked about prayer and having faith.
_
Thank you for being a gift to me and others. Thank you for being so strong and for inspiring us deeply. We were to catch up today – I am still calling in disbelief coz 2 days ago you were okay – or so I thought. I’m sorry I didn’t call.
I’m shaken, yet will I trust in God. We continue praying for your family. My heart breaks. It shall be well.🙏😂

Serahteshna My darling Anjilee, I’m completely lost for words. You were brave, full of life and kind. A true warrior who fought a good fight. May heaven open its doors for you. Rest well my Friend 💔.

Bettymuteikyallo My sweet Anjlee. You fought so strong. Breaks my heart that you are gone 💔 You are a warrior. May your spirit live on and may your family find strength at this time. I shall miss you. 😣

sowairina Rest My love… Rest🕊

Zkananu @anjleegadhvi My friend and former colleague, I’ll never forget the moments we shared at the gym…You were a fighter, you held your head up high and we had a lot to learn from you, we talked about so many things, you’ll forever be in our hearts, RIP dear…🌹 To your husband, children and the entire family, May God bless and keep you in His care now and forever. You are in my Prayers.🙏🏾
