‘I stood there in disgust, seeing that woman right there changed my heart’ Big Ted tells how seeing a prostitute deep in prayer changed his life

Big Ted has opened up on how he once misjudged a prostitute after seeing her praising and praying in church.

This change in perception was occasioned by gospel artiste Wahu, who changed how he perceived people.

Big Ted

He says

“Many years ‘sister’@wahukagwi was invited to perform in town..she took me to a certain night church that was held in the CBD it was Nairobi Friday night the atmosphere was totally charged & electric.
loud Afro music from the club next door and a cocophony of others filled the air..the town full of energetic Nairobians looking for a good time on the town…The church was dimly lit with coloured stage lights bouncing off the walls an amazing band & worship team led by one of best male vocalists I know…

Police man shoots his wife and turns the gun on himself in Njoro

wahu k
The twist was that the church was established & targeted mainly at twilight girls…i love worship and as the Praise part ended my ‘bible school attended church going self-righteous -ego stood up and announced myself to every eye that could see through the dark…See I felt I was the best placed RIGHTEOUS guy in the room to worship God..I felt that THESE other guys in the room had NO business lifting their hands to praise God intact I reasoned that I knew who they are, I know what work they do..i mean some of them were actually in their work clothes..”

He adds

“I stood their in disgust assuming the role of God the father..a young girl deep on her knees caught my eyes..her hands held out, tears rolling down her cheeks & in active conversation with ‘Her’ God..that right there changed my heart..I mean What was she telling the HOLY ONE..
was He even listening, Will God answer her? I mean I had already JUDGED & DISMISED her & everyone else based on my position YET I also probably engaged in every aspect of the same only now without PAY..


‘I am back fearless ,stronger with fresh lessons ‘Brags quack rapist doctor Mugo Wa Wairimu
LISTEN you judge someone not when you assess their position, but when you dismiss them as a have to love the person more than you love your position on that particular issue and It’s what you do after you tell someone the truth that’s easy to Judge some1 because U sin differently..Jesus told us the harsh truth about our sin BUT he still brought us in close. and made us, even as sinners, his friends..that even with YOUR DIRTY & FILTHY self YOU can still approach the throne of grace with Confidence so that you may find GRACE & obtain MERCY in your time of need Heb 4:16

Momo is bae! Men who marry chubby women smile more according to this study

Forget diets, forget working out and starving yourself. A new study suggest that men who are in relationships with chubby women tend to smile more.

The study further shows that chubby women  are better at dealing with problems than men who are in relationships with thin women. The regular Kenyan woman is chubby but the hype to lose weight and be skinny has been on the rise due to westernisation.

Extreme diets have led to health complications and even death.

The study also shows that thin women tend to be more reserved, more unfriendly and less expressive with their emotions.

The Argentinian newspaper Buevo Diario reports on the findings from the research conducted by Dr Filemón Alvarado and Dr Edgardo Morales at UNAM’s department of psychology.

According to their research, chubby women make their men ten times as happy as thin women. And we all know that happy people live longer. The study also indicated that chubby women are better at anticipating their partner’s needs.

But keeping fit isn’t bad. And Kenyan fitness experts such as Jane Mukami, who runs 21 Days Of Change, Chiki who has a show Dance with Chiki, Esther Dindi who runs Fit Sistaz and many other personal trainers, inspire us to be fit.

But going by this recent study,  maybe those few extra pounds aren’t fat – they’re love and tenderness! More and more celebrities are making the effort to lose weight  such as Big Ted who recently opened up about his struggle with weight before he lost 70 kgs from his initial 168 kgs.

Female musician Nazizi Hirji is also among local celebrities who have lost a drastic amount of weight over time bringing her sexy back. She went through a complete nutrition change and incorporated workouts .

Talia Oyando, Size 8 reborn, and Kalyeke Mumo have also been tagged along in this fitness journey  and we commend them for wanting to keep fit.
