Ian Mbugua serenades Brenda Wairimu during her birthday in cute video

Famous thespian Ian Mbugua was one of the most feared judges on Tusker Project Fame when the show was a must-watch on TV.

Ian’s ability to either lift or crush a contestant was unrivaled with many comparing his method to that of the original bad boy judge from the UK, Simon Cowell.

And the assumption that Ian was a terrible person persisted in some people’s minds as they could not divorce his judging persona and who was behind the veneer.

But over the years, the veteran stage and screen actor has managed to convert critics to his side, showing that his rational and logical side was just a layer of a more multi-faceted individual.

This week, Ian added a memento for the fans showing his heart of gold when he recorded a wonderful ballad for acting colleague Brenda Wairimu on her 32nd birthday.

And the man wasn’t playing around! He went all out for the mother of one serenading her with his impressive singing.

An over the moon Brenda shared a video of Ian singing for her. In the clip, Ian, who is wearing a yellow T-shirt, sings his heart out for the mother of one. “Happy birthday to you, happy birthday, beautiful Brenda. May God richly bless you,” Ian said in the video.

Brenda didn’t take the gesture lightly and expressed gratitude for the love she was receiving, saying it made her so happy. “I am so thankful for all this love…This is the best thing, man. I’m so happy, so so happy @ian.mbugua. Thank you so much. And he is wearing yellow!” she wrote.

Many fans were more than impressed by Ian’s singing and said as much in the comments section. Check out the video below;

Brenda Wairimu opens up about body insecurity that became her biggest selling point

Kenyan actress, Brenda Wairimu will arguably go down as one of the most beautiful Kenyan women ever, with the mother of one gracing our entertainment scene over the last decade blessing us with her acting skills.

But one thing that many didn’t know (including I) was that even a woman with such physical gifts still had body insecurities.

She revealed this information to her fans on her social media. Brenda disclosed that she had always hated her big lips, while growing up.

In the post seen by Classic105, Brenda who had shared a picture of the first paid advert she featured in, said she got the job because of her big lips.

“I hated my big lips growing up, they ended up being the reason I got this gig…there is a lesson in there somewhere 🤍 Remember the beginning…. Throwback to my first ever paid advert, years ago 🍫🍫🍫” wrote Brenda Wairimu.

The post started a whole thing on its own with another actress also revealing her own body insecurities. Nyce Wanjeri (formerly Shiro of Auntie Boss) said she hated her big eyes growing up, and now they are her asset when it comes to acting.

“I hated my eyes they are big and I was, aaah okey I am still slender now they are my asset in acting 😍. Go girl thanks for this reminder,” Nyce Wanjeri responded to Ms Wairimu’s post.

After that it became an avalanche of sharing by Brenda’s followers about their own struggles with their own bodies, which they had now embraced.

Some of the examples are below;

fassiebrendar Nikiwa primary singeenda shule bila viatu ama na open shoes ju nlikua naona nkiwa na kamguu kafupi kanono😏but now am so proud of my legs😋😋I even find them sexy😂😂😂😂😂

fatuomakeupartistafrica 😂😂😂😂 Na watu wanalipa pesa kupata hiyo dada halimo say alhamdulilah

shikunginyo Big lips are yummy…😜The day my big tummy will land me a gig… though. 🤦🏽‍♀️

magndeke I hated my big boobs back in high school my fellow students would tell me all manner of things killing my esteem… Kumbe they are a huge turn on.

angella__ishimwe @brendawairimu_ Thank you for inspiring me, I have the same insecurity about my lips but now I know there is always a good reason for something

Juliani’s example for dealing with an ex that Maureen and Frankie should learn

Musician Julius Owino aka Juliani might not be the most recognisable celeb in Kenya but that doesn’t mean his music hasn’t had a big impact on audiences.

Not only that but the man also made one of the best celebrity relationships back in the day with his liaison with Brenda Wairimu that produced a bouncing baby girl.

The two aren’t together anymore with Brenda rumored to have moved with a famous Instagrammer. But even though the two have a great relationship as co-parents, there are some who still want to pit them against each other.

One particular fan of Juliani on Twitter claimed that Juliani’s standards had gone down and said that the reason for that was Brenda Wairimu. “Juliani was dope before kupatana na brenda wairimu”.

That incendiary statement could have been met with silence or a like from him but he took the high road and defended his baby mama, saying, “Achana na Msichana wa wenyewe. Hakuna kitu ashawai fanya mbaya. If anything alinipa the best gift ever the most amazing baby Girl,” reads Juliani’s response.

Juliani and Brenda have a daughter named Amor Owino and have agreed on a co-parenting arrangement that works for them.

And how does this apply to Frankie Kiarie and Maureen Waititu?

The two can learn how to treat each other in the public from how Juliani did in his response. The man kept it classy and avoided giving the media something to feed off of because at the end of the day he knows that he will always share a bond with Brenda-their daughter.

This is unlike Frankie and Maureen who made headlines last year after they disparaged each other in the public despite being co-parents to two lovely kids.

They took every opportunity to diss each other giving someone like me a lot of content, something I am not complaining about. But I believe it was the worst thing they could do-they have young kids and they will have to deal with each other for the foreseeable future.

He added: “I still spend time with my daughter. I spent like four days with her just the other day kwa hao. I try my level best to be there, but I spend as much time with her. At least the mother is helpful in that she is always trying to make me spend more time with her, even when najidai niko busy.’

I spent like four days with her last week the mother allows me to be there for my daughter and I try my level best to be the best father I can be. I can pick her whenever

As per the usual, the segment Weekend With Betty did not start at the celebrity’s home, he said it is because he needs a safe space.

We did not start in my house because I need that space where no body knows. A place I can be myself and stupid with no judgement.

The major lesson learned in the relationship was that we are all human beings.

Even if someone makes mistake you need to understand they are human beings and not focus on one thing only but get the most out of someone. It is not always about give me give me also give

An open letter from singer Juliani to his fiancée

Well, Brenda had put up a photo of the two chilling with their faces covered in face mask with the caption, “A couple that masks together, stays together.”

That was enough reason to believe that the two were deeply in love, even though they had some problems in their relationship before.

Since they’ve made it clear that they are more than just girlfriend-boyfriend, Brenda posted a video on social media of the two yet again cuddling and masking their faces. But based on this video, fans have drawn different conclusions that confirm they are more than friends.
