This comes as number our number one on the list. Well, they were the hottest celebrity couple that we all looked up too. No sooner had we fallen in love with them than they called it quits.
The stories on their break up are so many, with each blaming the other. Every day brings a new angle and different story in regards to their very sudden separation.
The two are still very influential personalities when it comes to journalism.
They have a daughter.
2. Lonina Leteipan and Sharon Mundia
This falls as number two because just after Betty and Dennis, this was the fastest and saddest break-up.
Remember the guy who decided to hire a chopper and propose on Mt. Kenya? Yeah, Lonina is his name. So after all the hustle and a great wedding, six months down the line they were over and done with each other.
The biggest rumor being Sharon decided to have a threesome without him so he was like, ‘not today Satan, not ever!’ And that was the end of the power couple.
They have a daughter together.
I know, it all started all rosy and gold then a sudden slap on the face.
The two are what we would call the mother and father of celebrity couples. They set the standards for everyone on this list when they proved we can both be celebrities and have a happily ever after(okay other than Nameless and Wahu of course).
I guess the nation spoke too soon, next thing we know Shaffie and Debbie have a daughter then we hear she has flown to the states and they are over.
Well, their sad story has never really come out, but we were all surprised when their break up was out to the public. Despite that, they did not have such a sad ending as they have an amazing daughter who stays with Debbie but Shaffie still plays the daddy role.
4. DNG and Yvette Nungari
Another very sudden separation. DNG was the man every lady thirsted to have. When Yvette won the race, many women were saddened.
Maybe the fact that he was on demand got to his head too fast and according to the rumors out there, he used to cheat a lot. Yvette could not take it anymore so she called it quits.
That was Yvette’s story, according to DNG, he called it quits saying he married a pretty woman with a cold heart and an even worse personality. Sounds weird because we would expect him to have known all about her personality before he decided she is the one.
Every time this story comes up, I see Tina Kaggia crying. She went through a hard time in a marriage that she claims was alcohol based. Tina has repeatedly said it to the public that JB Masanduku never handled his alcohol right.
This made Tina Kaggia fall into depression but from her last TV interview, she seems to be doing okay, taking one step at a time.
JB, on the other hand, found love elsewhere and he has been flaunting it on social media. We hope his new fling lasts longer.
They did not spend so much money on their wedding as compared to Dennis and Lonina’s love story as they just went to the AG and made things legal.
They have three children together.
6. J Blessing and Chantelle
This one is dramatic. The two got married and had a child who passed away. This gave both J Blessing and Chantelle sleepless nights and of course all sorts of emotions.
Next thing on the grapevines, J Blessing left allegedly because Tina cheated on him. J Blessing is a hot cake as from his current scandals. He is the dad on the block, the baby mama rumored to be Avril.
Just like that J Blessing and Chantelle were no more but they seem to be looking for love elsewhere so we can outrightly say, wako sawa!
Last but not least is Mc Jessy. This is one is sad. They had an amazing wedding which was filled with laughter, love, friends and family.
MC Jessy started getting too cozy with Shixs Kapienga and boom! Elizabeth and Jessy are no more. Shixs is and has always been his one and only. The question is why did he waste 6 years of love with Elizabeth if he knew his fate was Shixs? I know so sad!
It is hard losing a child. No parent is ever prepared for this and when death knocks most parents mourn for years while some never over come the loss.
Dr Burton Grebin once said
“The death of a child is the most single most traumatic event in medicine.To lose a child is to lose a piece of yourself “.
Some Kenyan celebrities have experienced this loss first hand and some don’t publicly express it, it doesn’t mean they aren’t hurting. So the next time you meet them on the street be kind because kindness does not hurt.
The TV presenter lost his son after he succumbed to complications related to Sickle cell anemia. In 2015, Okinyi announced the demise of his son to the public in the tweet below.
Before his untimely death Twani was to turn 5 years
The venacular artiste famously known for hits such as ‘Agiginya’ was a mother to twins (boy and girl) before losing one of them after he developed a chest infection that saw him admitted to Nairobi Women’s Hospital, where he sadly lost the battle.
In an earlier interview with Jeff on Inooro Fm, Shiru wa GP opened up about losing her son and she said:
“It was a bad experience because I didn’t expect it. It’s one of those situations when you have tried so hard then you finally have something good and then the devil snatches it from your hands. I had tried conceiving for 9 years, heading to 10 when God blessed me with twins. I was very excited even though they did not make it to term as they were born 2 months premature. At that point, I didn’t even ask people to pray with me as I knew God had already blessed me in a big way. It (the loss of my baby and my admission) was not only challenging emotionally but also financially as the bill had accumulated up to Shs4.5 million so I had to reach out for financial aid which wasn’t easy.”
God has been gracious to her as she still has her daughter.
Nigeria artiste Dbanj is among other celebrities who have lost their kids. Early this year his son drowned in a swimming pool at the residence leaving the young parents heartbroken.
Dbanj termed the period of losing his son as a hard one but he remained thankful to God for seeing him through.
‘The past few weeks have been incredibly trying and difficult, but God’s love has kept me and my family going. I can’t thank my team enough and the incredible love from you all. May God keep us all. #StrongerTogether’…🙏🙏🙏”
Nominated senator Isaac Mwaura and his wife Mukami Mwaura lost two of their kids after they developed complications after being born prematurely.
Mukami had delivered triplets namely – Njiru Maigua Mwaura, Mwaura Maigua and Njeri Maigua – who were all born at 28 weeks, sadly Njeri and Mwaura passed on after 3 months at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
Speaking about her loss Mukami said
“The emptiness you are left with after you lose a child … “We may look as if we carry on with our lives as before. We may even have times of joy and happiness. Everything may seem normal. But this, EMPTINESS is how we all feel, all the time” ~ John Maddox, for Bereaved Parents Month “
Mukami is a happy mother though after his remaining son recently celebrated his 1st birthday.
5. Juliana Kanyomozi
Juliana, who is among the top female artistes in Uganda, lost her son after he succumbed to severe asthmatic attack at theAgha Khan hospital.
Juliana celebrated his fourth memorial with an emotional post reminiscing on how perfect he was as a son.
The laid back Julie opened up on losing her 3rd born son after a choking incident at home.
“MY HOUSE HELP WAS FEEDING THE CHILD, HE GOT CHOKED, RUSHED TO THE HOSPITAL, THE DOCTORS MANAGED TO RESUSCITATE HIM, BUT LATER COULD NOT STAND THE AMOUNT OF ADRENALINE INJECTED IN HIS BODY, THE BOY LEFT US.
I YEARNED TO SLEEP AT NIGHT BECAUSE IN MY SLEEP HE WOULD COME IN MY DREAMS, I WAS HOLDING HIM AGAIN. IT WAS A TRAUMATIZING TIME AND I ACTUALLY SAID TO MY HUSBAND WE ARE NEVER GOING TO HAVE ANOTHER CHILD AGAIN I CAN’T GO THROUGH THIS AGAIN.
WHEN WE LOST OUR BELOVED THIRD BORN WE WERE DEVASTATED. DESTROYED. TOTALLY BROKEN. BUT WE DID NOT LET GO OF OUR LOVE FOR GOD. IN SPITE OF OUR DEVASTATION AND GRIEF WE KEPT OUR FAITH. ONE YEAR LATER THE LORD GOD BLESSED US WITH A CHILD, AND WE NAMED HIM WANGAI, BECAUSE WE KNEW HE WAS A GIFT, WE HAD LEARNT THAT ULTIMATELY ALL CHILDREN BELONG TO GOD.”
Size 8 recently lost her unborn child after suffering a miscarriage,speaking about it she says
“Rumours were in many blogs that I was pregnant but I never did really confirm it because it was a battle all the way, so I just wanted to go with the fight privately. But God decided the best lane for me and I lost the pregnancy juzi. To be honest I’ve cried and asked God so many questions. I have given my husband stress. He is trying to make me be okay,” Size 8 said.
Chantelle and J Blessing lost their son Kyle at the Aga Khan hospital 3 years ago,After Kyle’s death J Blessing posted lines to the hymn “It is well” on his Facebook page.
“Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee. How great Thou art, how great Thou art.”
The couple later broke up due to irreconcilable differences.
They were the most powerful couple in the media industry and when the couple broke up Kenyans were left in shock given that most people admired them.
The two have gone their separate ways, but we still wish that they were still together. They have a daughter together.
4. J blessing and Chantelle
They were among the best couple at the time and everyone was hoping that their relationship would last, sadly it wasn’t so.The couple had a son together who sadly passed away after being sick for sometime.
5. Willis Raburu and Sally Mbilu
Willis who is now married to the love of his life Marya Prude, was at one time engaged to Sally Mbilu and things were looking great between the two.
Zari’s break up with Diamond Platnumz left tongues wagging with many speculating that the two might get back together something that is yet to be seen.
The couple is among the most powerful couple in Tanzania with both Zari and Diamond as house hold names in their respective countries. The couple who have children together, broke up in what Zari termed as disrespect after her ex shared intimate photos and videos of him with Hamisa Mobetto to the public
Before the break up, the couple had been going through a rough patch with the public claiming that Diamond’s son with Zari is not his, rather belongs to the late Ivan who is the father of Zari’s three sons
The latest talk in town hints that the two might consider getting back together, after photos of Diamond’s manager Babu Tale was spotted visiting Zari a few weeks ago, leaving the public with many questions.
My question to you ladies is, Would you get back with your ex or your baby daddy after breaking up?
Kenya celebrities such as Rubadiri, Avril, J blessing, Dj Pierra Makena, Nicah The Queen have been brave enough to walk away from their relationship, but would they ever consider going back?
Matters of the heart are a complicated affair for the fact that one might swear never to get back with their Ex for different reasons ranging from physical abuse, sexual abuse, infidelity or even irresponsibility but always find themselves back together.
J Blessing and Avril have been rumored to be lovers for the longest time despite them denying. We know she is now heavily pregnant especially from her recent photoshoot she had of her baby bump and yes the first thought was it is J Blessing’s baby.
He celebrated his birthday during the weekend and the fact that he is a big deal in the music world, he got a lot of wishes. One particular wish caught our eye when Avril posted a picture of him with the caption:
Happy birthday, J … ❤️ …
Of course, the wish is very casual but the love heart emoji, everything changes. To make their situation even more suspicious, Avril edited her post hours after and removed the love heart emoji and left the post. If nothing was going on then she should have just let the caption be as intended.
Avril has been known to say she does not like associating herself with controversy but funny enough, she finds her self deep in it. She has denied being pregnant but it looks like she was tired if hiding it and finally decided to accept and show off her baby bump. One thing about pregnancy, you cannot hide it, it is a growing human that we will see with every step of the trimesters. We must say her photoshoot is beautiful though!
J Blessing took up the sweet post and reposted it on his page, let’s call it a sign of acknowledgment of their hidden love.
Award-winning producer and director J Blessing is a talented man. The handsome lad, who recently parted ways with one of his baby mamas, singer Chantelle, is giving his counterparts a run for their money. This year, he’s bagged a lot of endorsement deals with top corporates. And even launched a brand of headphones called Pace Focus.
J Blessing, who likes to keep his life under wraps, has a younger sister, Chantelle Blessing. The 8-year-old girl, who is a spitting image of her elder brother, is passionate about fashion and she vlogs.
Here are photos of J Blessing’s never before seen look-alike sister
The local showbiz industry is flooded with many celebrities but most of the times we talk much about the successful and influential women forgetting about men, especially those behind these women.
Well, we have married men, single, divorced and bachelors who also play a major role in our showbiz industry.
After doing an article about women who are thriving after parting ways with their husbands, I thought it would be interesting to do a list of the men who have made it after separating from their wives.
Well, from Dennis Okari to JBlessing, here are the Kenyan men who are thriving after parting ways with their wives.
1. Dennis Okari
He married Betty Kyallo in a colourful wedding ceremony back in 2015. It was termed the wedding of the year but six months later, they broke up. Betty moved on with life and apart from being a top presenter at KTN, she is also the CEO of a highly rated salon in the city. Okari, on the other hand, has been busy with his career at NTV and besides that, he is a preacher and motivational speaker. He preaches in schools.
2. Pastor Eric Omba
The estranged husband to award-winning singer Gloria Muliro. The two broke up in 2015 after staying together for sometime with Infidelity cited as the main reason for their breakup. Gloria’s career continues to flourish while Omba is a video director and pastor. He later married yet another Congolese gospel singer, Bel and they are blessed with an adorable daughter.
He is a video producer and director who was once married to secular singer-cum-actress Chantelle and were blessed with a son who sadly died. JBlessing is currently working with Blaze and he recently bought a new expensive machine, a clear indication that he is doing fine.
“Whenever you find yourself doubting how far you can go, just remember how far you have come. Remember everything you have faced, all the battles you have won, and all the fears you have overcome!”
4. Daniel Ng’ang’a Heho aka Hey Z Da Brand
The gospel singer’s wife is said to have cheated on him with another man. His wife is heavily pregnant for her new man while Hey Z is still single. The gospel singer decided to focus on his career and his music has always dominated the local airwaves.
5. Victor Kanyari
The controversial man of God was exposed in 2014 as a con pastor which saw him face a lot of criticism from the public but that has never deterred him from ‘spreading the gospel’.
From building a multi-million shilling palatial home, to acquiring some of the most expensive machines around, the man of the cloth is indeed living like a king. His estranged wife Betty Bayo, continues to shine in the gospel industry. The two were blessed with a daughter and are co-parenting.
6. Phelix Oduor aka Jalang’o
The comedian-cum-presenter also parted ways with his baby mama Cheptoek Boyo though they are co-parenting. Boyo recently revealed that they are no longer an item. Jalang’o married someone else and he is doing fine career-wise. Have you seen the kind of cars he drives?
7. Moses Njuguna Kanene
The estranged husband of sexy TV siren Lillian Muli is also doing well after they parted ways a while back. They have a son together and they are co-parenting.
8. David Makuyu
David Makuyu and Cynthia Nyamai married in 2007 when he was 31, after a year and half of dating. The two parted ways three years later. Cynthia Nyamai, a PR guru moved on and so did Makuyu who remarried in December 2015. He runs Kipawa Music Production.
Top Kenyan video producer and director J Blessing has come out to reveal that his separation from his ex-fiancee Chantell left him “lonely and hurt”, but at the same time, it’s made him learn from his “mistakes and faults”.
J Blessing dated the Toklezea hitmaker for five years. Just a year into dating, Chantelle confirmed that she was expecting their first child together and in January 2015, the elegant singer gave birth to an adorable baby boy, Kyle Blessing.
Sadly, baby Kyle passed away on July 31st, 2014 at Aga Khan Hospital after a short illness, where he was receiving treatment, and these were some of the darkest days for the couple.
The two supported each other throughout the painful moment and we all thought that things were rosy until April this year when Chantelle revealed that they had broken up.
There were rumours that Chantelle cheated on J Blessing, but she clarified that this was not true at all, adding that they decided to call it quits because they were not happy with each other.
On top of that, Chantelle also confessed that his work and a lot of traveling had affected their relationship and at the end of it all, she decided that it was time to pick up and move on adding that it was not easy.
Sometimes you feel so caged and the results of that are what other people judge you around. Simply, I have let go and I wish J Blessing every good in life.
Well, Jibril Blessing himself has come out to confess that what happened between them really hurt him, and made it lonely, but that’s not a reason for him to dwell on his mistakes, but rather learn from them, and make himself a better man.
Do I feel scared? Have I been hurt? Do I make mistakes? Well, Yes. It’s true and that makes me the strong man I am right now. Never feel ashamed of yourself now allow your weaknesses to bring you down. Work on them.
J Blessing seems to be doing well as he’s been chosen at one of the mentors for Blaze ‘Be Your Own Boss’ Kenya.
