Since the turn of the new year, two couples have been trending on social media. Anerlisa Muigai and her Tanzanian bae Ben Pol plus Diamond and his Kenyan bae Tanasha. Kenya and Tanzanian are coming together as one.
It seems like Diamond Platnumz is ready to settle down with his Kenyan bae, Tanasha Donna after he bought her a house, in Dar Esalaam, Tanzania.
She finally revealed how she met Diamond, which was 2 years ago. Back then Diamond was still married to Mama Tiffah and Nilan, Zari Hassan. Diamond was clearly not satisfied in his marriage.
Now he has made it clear he has found the one, Tanasha Donna, and their wedding is any time soon.
Of course with this, she has captured the attention of many Kenyans and Tanzania so she is now famous. During her ‘ask me a question’ segment on social media, one of her fans asked her about the toughest time in her life.
moving back to kenya and my mom being all the way back in Europe. miss her
This could actually have worked in Tanasha’s favor because the way things are going, she might be moving to Tanzania where Diamond has built her their home in Dar Esalaam.
“Imagine buying clothes from a store and spending over KSh 30,000-KSh 40,000 weekly but you ask them not to post your picture without your permission. You are then told not to buy from them because they have dressed way more celebrities than you.”
That is a pretty penny considering that in a 2016 survey by the KNBS, only 74,000 of employees in Kenya earned more than Sh100,000 per month.
Even though many do it on the low key, others have admitted to using uganga to catalyse their craft.
Some of the celebrities that we will be looking at include gospel singer Sarkozi, bongo star Diamond Platnumz, his sister Esma Platnumz, Hamisa Mobetto and Darassa.
Gospel singer Rigan Sarkozi’s life history is an inspiring yet scary one altogether.
In an interview on Radio Jambo, the man who rose to fame thanks to his ‘Wewe ni Mungu’ hit song featuring Daddy Owen, shocked many when he revealed that he once resorted to witchcraft and drug dealing to survive.
Opening up on his controversial past, Sarkozi said his spirit convinced him to speak out on how he turned to the same God he was fighting in search for prosperity.
“As a Christian and a human being, I got saved in 2011, and since then, I haven’t spoken about this (practising witchcraft),” he said.
“I did not wake up just one morning and get saved. I have been involved in theft cases, witchcraft, among others. I would come into your house and steal your TV set and leave, only for you to realise it hours later.”
He said it all started with the company he kept in the past. His friends were into women and the partying life, and since their parents would never give them money for such, they resorted to stealing household items.
Sarkozi decided to change his ways for good upon receiving a call from his mother, who dreamt that her son had died.
It is at that point that he fled Tanzania with the little he had and came back to Kenya, where he grew up, and decided to give his life to Christ, despite being as drunk as a fiddler back in 2011.
The news that Hamisa had gone to a witchdoctor to bewitch Diamond raised eyebrows. When Hamisa came to Kenya, she said she had gone to seek spiritual guidance and not witchcraft.
Diamond had spoken about it on his TV station, Wasafi TV, saying she had gone to seek a witchdoctor’s help to secure Diamond’s love.
He called out his baby mama, Hamisa Mobetto, for seeking the services of witchdoctors to compel him to marry her.
“You have gone to witch doctors wishing harm against my family. That means you could kill my mum and here you are asking that I buy you a house,” he wrote.
I have heard those voice notes going round. I heard things that I knew that is her (Hamisa). I know this is you. I even told her I know this is you. You want my mum and sister to look like the bad people. They can never be the bad people.
What you are doing is not right. You should focus on your businesses and your work, instead of going to the witchdoctors to charm me into marrying you.”
Darassa, however, said it was long ago, and he did not go to seek black magic powers over his music but for personal issues.
“If I say I have never gone to a witchdoctor I will be lying. I have been to one once in my life. I did not go for my personal issues rather we went as a team, with a group I was playing with football.
My team believed in that challenge, was the team captain yet I was the youngest thus I did not have the sheer will of going against the advice of my elders.”
Joseph Mayanja, popularly known as Jose Chameleone, is arguably the best musician in the East African region. Having stayed in the music industry for 16 years, Chameleone has managed to become one of the most-sought-after artistes around, despite many peers fading into insignificance.
Known for hit songs such as Wale Wale, Nkoleki, Vale Vale, Dorotia, Tubonge, Agatako and Pam Pam, Chameleone’s music has always dominated both the local and international airwaves, a clear indication that he is creative and talented.
The Tubonge hit singer has also worked his way up, and his lavish lifestyle is a clear indication of that. From his palatial mansions to driving expensive cars, Chameleone is a clear indication that indeed, music pays.
Well, this date is not a revenge anymore as many fans were saying because the WCB artiste has postponed it.
“I will get married in 2019. My wedding was supposed to be on the 14th, Valentine’s day but we’ve pushed it forward.
Many people are slated to attend, the likes of Rick Ross, artistes that i’ve done collabos with, family and friends.
I want it to be a Royal wedding. I believe i can do that because fans love me, the government likes me, people support me. everyone would like to see it.But there is something i’ll do on Valentine’s day.”
Wasafi festival, arguably one of the most anticipated concerts of 2018 went down on New year’s eve at Uhuru Gardens.
The concert was headlined by WCB artists; Mbosso, Diamond Platnumz, Harmonize, Queen Darlene, Rayvanny and Lava Lava as well as Grammy award winning reggae band, Morgan Heritage.
Kenyan acts; Naiboi, Band Beca and Nadia Mukami thrilled the packed grounds before the Wasafi crew and Morgan Heritage took to stage.
As much as I love Bongo music and the Wasafi crew, I honestly feel like they should have done much better and it is only fair to say Morgan Heritage outshone the entire crew with their spirited performances.
In case you missed the show here are photos from Wasafi festival.
However, Sanura fully supports her son’s decision to marry Tanasha.
Speaking to a Tanzanian based website, Sanura, who is popularly known as Mama Dangote in social media circles, revealed that it was time for her son to get married and she wouldn’t oppose if it Tanasha turns out to be her daughter-in-law.
She continued stating that she was pleased with Tanasha’s young age;
“Sasa nimkatae amenikosea nini mtoto wa watu? Nani amesema nimemkataa mkwe wangu? Kama mwanangu amemuona anamfaa basi nipo radhi amuoe maana umri wake unaenda na umri wa kumuoa (Why would I say no to Tanasha? Who said I have refused my in-law? If my son has seen her fit for himself, who I’m I to say no? After all their ages are both conducive for marriage.”

Its that day of the week where we look at throw back photos of your favorite celebrities,some of them walikua wamechapa but as they say ‘bora uhai’.
While back then most musicians could not afford to live a good life most of them now can easily afford to travel around,drive expensive cars buy designer clothes and shoes while back then they could only see such in magazines
Here are some some musicians who have undergone serious transformation you would be shocked to see their old photos
Born Hubert Nakitare,nonini has seen a major transformation not only in his body size, but also in his fashion sense ,music growth,he is a true definition of ‘watu hutoka mbali’
Don’t get it twisted ,your favourite artiste diamond hasn’t always been an eye candy but with the money and the fame things seem to have greatly changed for him.
He can now afford the best of things money can buy and he can mostly be seen rocking designer attire,entertaining beautiful women and of course going for vacations something he could have only dreamt of
Don’t let the biceps lie to you back then Timmy had nothing to flaunt but he can now comfortably buy himself whatever he wants thanx to his music career.
His sense of fashion was way below poor but he has greatly transformed and the meek Timmy is gone.
Wyre the love child has always been an eye candy but nevertheless less he has seen a major transformation ,as he now looks more mature and confident unlike when he ventured into this music industry.
From back then singing as necessary noize Wyre has remained a sweetheart to many women but too bad he is off the market.
Forget the good looks and the well kept dreadlocks back then Dj Sadic rocked short hair which made him look so naive an easy target for nairobi thieves who steal from you in broad daylight.
Sadic has seen a major transformation given the fact he is among the best dressed DJ’s in Kenya something he never thought he would achieve
The self proclaimed queen of single mothers hasn’t always had it easy in life ,with time she has seen a major transformation and the photo below is a proof of that.
She now boasts of designer shoes,clothes,watches and a beautiful mansion to top it all.
Juacali popularly know as ‘Baba yao’ has seen a major transformation in his physical appearance ,going by his throw back photos,the only thing the musician has maintained all these years is his beautiful hair which seems to be growing longer by the day.
The ‘Shoulder back’ artiste has changed alot from the skinny young man he was to a true ‘gentleman ‘ who leaves ladies yearning for more,through the years the only thing he has maintained is his durag for reasons only best known to him.
The photos have however left us wondering Diamond anafeel aje after seeing bae ‘s photo with his frenemy.
Diamond even confessed that she is the woman he is going to marry
The father of three revealed that Tanasha was the only woman he was going to marry.
“Tanasha is the only lady who showed me some seriousness on the (marriage) idea and I now officially announce that I am marrying her. She got all the qualities of a woman any man would wish to marry. Many of us men only focus on the physical attractiveness of a woman, body shape among other things, which she got as well, but what convinced me more and attracted me is her good manners.”
2018 has seen many celebrity relationships end for one reason or the other.
We take a look at some of the worst breakups we have seen in 2018.
People break up everyday but the list below has been termed the worst due to the publicity they attracted:
The mother of five broke up with Diamond Platnumz over what she termed as constant disrespect. She wrote
“Understand this is very difficult for me to do. There have been multiple rumors some with evidence floating around In ALL SORTS of media in regards. Diamond’s constant cheating and sadly I have decided to end my relationship with Diamond.
As my RESPECT, INTEGRITY, DIGNITY 8, WELL BEING cannot be compromised. We are separating as partners but not as parents. This doesn’t reduce me as a self-made Individual, and as a caring mother, and the boss lady you have all come to know.
I continue to build as a mogul, I will Inspire the world of women to become boss ladies too. I will teach my four sons to always respect women, and teach my daughter what self respect means,unlike many.
I’ve been in the industry for 12 years and through all my challenges I came out a victor because I am a winner,and so are all of you Zari supporters.HAPPY VALENTINES.”
2. Vera Sidika and Otile Brown
The two broke up in what has been the most publicized relationship in the recent past.Vera opened up saying that Otile was using her for his own gains.
The last few weeks have seen the public entertained after the damsel leaked their conversations online even airing Otile’s wanting bedroom performance.
He recently broke up with his fiancée of 3 years saying that they had both agreed it was the best for both of them. Talking to Classic 105, he said
“People fall in and out of love, and maybe the plans I had for her did not work out.
We moved on because there is more to life than just love and relationships. People should stop speculating things, but instead let her move on with her life. She is free to be out there and get other people.
To be honest, we agreed that whatever we wanted to do together would not work out, and it was a peaceful agreement. Tulikua tunaenda Canaan tukapata mamba.”
The damsel, who is expectant with her first child, recently opened up on being left high and dry by her boyfriend while heavy with child, adding that he wanted her to terminate the pregnancy.
In an interview with SDE, she says
“He left when I was two months pregnant but God has been faithful. Rejection is one thing I can never wish for my worst enemies. I can never harbour bitterness or hard felling on him. Everything happens for a reason. My baby will be great that’s for sure. It’s said that when you are with God the rest is a peanut.”
The curvaceous lady parted ways with her mzungu bae this year. Taking to her instagram she posted a long post on the reason for their breakup.
“I loved this guy! But the distance just couldn’t allow us to be together, it’s been tough and we were not happy. I’m single and happy, focusing on myself and law practice. I’m sure I will find love and when it’s real; it will be easy,”
After endless struggle and fights for little things because we were both agitated about everything coz we missed each other, we finally decided to quit.”she wrote.
You might be wondering why there is so much fuss on why Tanzanian artiste Diamond Platnumz is among the highest paid artistes,well here is how much he is paid.
Diamond Platnumz revealed the minimum amount he is paid in every show that he graces. The singer unveiled these details after his hit song with Rayvanny dubbed ‘Nyegezi’ was banned.
“As you might know my charges are not below 70,000$ for every show,that is 160,300,000 in Tanzanian currency and a whooping Ksh 7 million in Kenyan currency.Just for one show I am able to contribute a tax of not less than 48,090,000 (In Tanzanian currency).”
After breaking up with Diamond Platnumz on Valentine’s Day, BBC after the break-up, Zari revealed that she will raise her kids alone in case the singer didn’t want to. She said this during an interview with BBC.
“IF HE WANTS TO SUPPORT HIS CHILDREN HE CAN DO THAT BUT IF HE DOESN’T WANT TO ITS STILL OKAY. I CAN MANAGE ON MY OWN,” she said.
We hope soon she will find a father figure to help her raise the kids.
