Kambua is pregnant and ready to share the news with the world. Rumors of her pregnancy have been on the internet the last couple of months
The TV star has now unveiled a baby bump putting to rest those pregnancy rumors.
Back in 2018, Kambua admitted in a Tv interview that she has frequently been asked why she is yet to get children six years since she was married to Jackson Mathu.
“People will have an opinion over everything, over children. Today I saw a comment and deleted it because this guy commented on my Instagram and he says ‘When are you going to get pregnant, you’re getting old’”
“I remember thinking, the reason why it angers me is because people don’t even know what your journey is like. They don’t know what you’re struggling with. They don’t know if you even what to have children. They don’t know if you can have children and there are so many people especially today who are struggling with infertility. It so unfortunate that we become such a culture of being so intrusive and putting people down. Shamming each other on things like that. I would wish that people would be sensitized. I have people who are close to me who might not be at the fore front like I am but who go through that every day.”
Looking at Kambua it would be hard to imagine that growing up her body was full of scars after she fell into a basin full of hot water while aged three.
Speaking on Maisha Magic’s Story Yangu programme, the singer confessed the incident almost took away her life.
I got burnt so bad,I had 3rd degree burns. For three months I was admitted in hospital with third-degree burns. The doctors despaired…there was little hope for me.
But God still had a plan for my life. God saved me from the sting of death, and in spite of what the doctors feared, I began my slow but steady journey to recovery.
Due to the damage caused on my skin by the burns, the doctors suggested that my family take me for plastic surgery, but before a decision could be made, the great physician, Jehovah Rapha, continued to restore me.
Apart from her good looks, Kambua is also known for her good hair. Incase you didn’t know who naturalista’s are, they are people who grow out their natural hair and Kambua is one of them.
Now, natural hair is not easy to maintain as naturalista’s easily get tired and tend to straighten it using chemicals.
Kambua with the good hair has always loved to style her natural hair and we can’t just have enough of it. Here are her different hair styles that should inspire you to continue with your natural hair journey and look glam.
1. Up do
This is just a simple look that doesnt need alot of work. If your hair is not long enough to have such a puff at the top you could buy an extension to complete.
2. TWA( Tiny Winy Afro)
How cute is she in that tiny afro. Now you probably have that kinda afro and you dont know how to style it. Here is an inspiration of how you could stand out in your tiny winy afro.
3. Push back
Another easy and common hair style that can take you for weeks without having a bad hair day. Who wouldn’t want that. You don’t even need to visit a hair stylist. You can just do it from the comfort of your house.
Well, we have celebrities like Kambua, who has been married for a couple of years, but men still drool upon seeing her. She’s a petite media personality and a really bright and soft spoken at the same time.
Betty Kyallo is not one to be left behind. In as much as she has been linked to controversies left, right and center, she is among the most successful and beautiful Kamba dolls in the 254.
Kush Tracey recently revealed that she has accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior.
It has been a longtime coming,I always fought with my inRedykulassner spirit every time I was doing secular music,but as I always say #GodAboveAll🙌 I have given my life to Christ today and ready to embark on the journey to fulfill my divine destiny,my anointing,my praise,my worship will never be paralyzed by the devil again,well y’all know the fear of God is the beginning of all wisdom to God be the glory AMEN😇
Well, she was beautiful when she was a secular artiste and she’s equally beautiful now that she’s saved. In case you didn’t know, her real name is Teresia Ndoti Wambua.
Lillian Muli is definitely a force to reckon with and has made sure that y’all realize she’s good at what she does.
She has been in the media industry for years and as time goes by, she has learned how to block noise from her haters. She’s one Kamba doll who says things as they are whether you like it or not.
Olive Burrows, one of the most talked about news anchors is a sight to behold. Many people have questioned her race but one thing you should know, she’s a Kamba doll too.
Olive is an only child, born to a Kamba mother, who passed away and a Kenyan father whose father is British and mother is Tanzanian. Heeee, this explains why she looks amazing; this is indeed good genes.
Saumu Mbuvi, daughter to Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko, is not a stranger in these streets. She has made headlines both good and bad but that has never stopped her from doing her thing.
In 2016, she made her parents proud after she graduated from JKUAT. This Kamba doll is smart and beautiful, best believe that.
Gospel artiste Kambua is counting her blessings after she turned an year old ,celebrating herself she penned about how 2018 has had challenges.
“Who’s birthday is it?? MINE MINE MINE! I have to say, this year hit me with so many unexpected challenges- I honestly didn’t think I would be strong enough to endure it, but I DID! Praise God💃🏽. I am so grateful to everyone who held me up this year. Everyone who prayed for me, sent me a word of encouragement, boldly stood by and for me, THANK YOU🙏🏽. Thank you for speaking victory into my life. 2018 has been one of the hardest adult years of my life, but I am thankful for GRACE. I’m now walking into a NEW year boldly, unafraid, older, stronger, fly-er😉, Thirty-favored, and just madly in love with Jesus my ROCK. Happy birthday to me! 🎉🎀”
She also took the time to thank those who wished her a happy birthday ,sent her gifts or participated in one way or the other.
“I would like to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. My day turned out so different than what I’d anticipated. I have eaten cake, received more flowers than the vases I own, gifts that have warmed my heart, messages that have left me in 😭, texts and calls that made me laugh😂 (non singing friends who belted out a tune for me lol), I have received hugs, prayers, just THANK YOU from the deepest part of my heart. I’m so blessed to see a new year and I’m exhaling as I enter into this new season. I love you all so much. I probably don’t say it often enough. Thank you for doing this journey called life with me. Ok, thanks for listening to my TED talk💁🏽♀️. And Jesus- thank you. Thank you 🎀🎉”
Gospel artiste Kambua is vocal when it comes to defending people who have been oppressed and shunned by the society especially women .
It is no different this time round after she took to her social media to write an encouragement message to women who have gone through a miscarriage.
“This post is a few weeks overdue, but here goes: October is pregnancy and Infant loss month. We tend to forget this special group of women who have undergone the pain of a miscarriage, or the pain of losing an infant. So I’m writing this post for the woman who has undergone the excitement of discovering she’s pregnant, and then the heartbreak of being told she no longer is. I’m writing this for the woman who had no idea that she was pregnant, but after a crisis, being told that she was, and miscarried. I’m writing this also for the woman who knowingly (for whatever reason) decided to terminate a pregnancy and has to live with the pain of regret (God doesn’t condemn you).
I am also writing this for every woman who carried a baby to term, pushed, pushed, pushed… and gave birth to a baby who didn’t cry, but only lay still. And finally I’m writing this for the woman who held a baby in her arms, suckled them, cuddled them, but still they didn’t stay🤰🏾🤱🏾💔. If you know someone who’s gone through this kind of loss, hug them, text them, call them, buy them flowers, take them out for tea, or just sit and cry with them. And if you are any of these women here, just drop me a💗. You are seen, and you are deeply, deeply loved.💐”
Below are some of the reactions from her fans after reading the message
mercienyawira_twitch:God bless you Kambua I have been with a friend who’s suffered a miscarriage and the pain is too much..I pray for all women who’ve had to experience such women to find healing and also for those who condemn such women to get enlightened and other than condemning be there to support in the healing journey..❤️❤️
silaton_davies:My Love and support to you all
mariahkibs:Wooow,,been there n it hurts..let’s pray for all these women
alexandra_mureithi:Your time is coming.. in Jesus name. Amen
Kambua has called out some Kenyans for being insensitive. Last week, a senior manager of PwC kenya died from his injuries when he fell from the 17th floors at Delta Towers.
The PwC Country Senior Partner in Kenya, said in a statement, “We had a very unfortunate and tragic incident at our offices this morning which resulted in the death of Stephen Mumbo, a Manager in our Business Recovery Services unit.
“Steve was a valuable member of our team in Business Recovery Services and one of the longest serving members of that team. Steve was a very calm person, a good listener and never raised his voice. He was dependable and a mentor to many.
I would like to reinforce that Steve’s work involved administrations and receiverships, supporting clients through negotiations and trying to turn around companies in distress. He was a very valuable member of our team.”
“We are deeply saddened and shocked by Steve’s death. As you can imagine, this is a very difficult challenge to come to terms with. On behalf of the partners and staff of PwC Kenya, I would like to express the shock and sadness that we feel, which is difficult to express in words right now. Our hearts and prayers are with his family, friends. We will support Steve’s family however we can.
At this time, we cannot comment directly on the circumstances surrounding Steve’s death. I hope that our friends and clients understand that for now, investigations are ongoing by the relevant authorities. They have come to our offices today and we are working closely with them.
In the meantime, we are also working with trained counsellors who are offering support to our PwC people. It is very important at this shocking time, to provide our people with trained professionals who can help us to work through the shock and emotions that we all feel. Counselling is only the beginning.”
Below are some of the insensitive comments people made about the death something that agitated Kambua
Gospel artiste Emmy Kosgei has opened up on why she is not in a rush to have her own biological kids with her hubby five years after their marriage.
In an interview with Parent’s Magazine, she opened up about her marriage, revealing that compassion and love and some of the reasons she married the apostle.
According to Emmy, she did not get married just to have kids. However, she revealed that she is open to having kids someday as there is a lot of pressure imposed on her over getting her own babies.
“I didn’t get married just because I wanted to have kids. Relationships are about unions and destinies. If you are attached to the wrong person, it can affect your destiny permanently. I’m also very busy but yes, I do hope to have my children someday.”
According to Emmy, she does not regret her decision to marry the apostle and appreciates him for loving her genuinely and giving her reasons to stay in love.
Months ago Media personality Mark Maasai also opened up on why he and his wife have not had any kids yet despite the fact that they have already been married for three years.
“We are still learning the ropes of marriage,We are not in any rush when it comes to babies, but I can assure you my soldiers are marching and as soon as the baby is here we shall let you know,”
Kambua has also on a few occasions tackled the children issue as she is also under ‘societal pressure’ to get kids. Sadly what most people do not know is that God is the giver of life and only him can decide when to bless you.
“Motherhood is a calling. A great one. But it’s not the only one. Stop all this kosokoso of making people feel “less than” because they’re not mom’s, by choice or by circumstance.
it angers me when people keep being intrusive on issues such as when are you getting kids it upsets me because people don’t know what you are struggling with, people don’t even know whether you want to have children or not.
People don’t know if you can actually get children or not, There are so many women who are fighting infertility and I would wish that people be sensitized on this issue. It’s such a shame that we have become a down shaming society.”
Fathers day is a celebration honoring fathers and celebrating fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the influence of fathers in society and in line with that we are looking at a number of Kenyan celebrities and their loving dads, who are normally the unsung heroes in the society.
While most wait till they are in dire need of medical assistance or when they are deceased, a few Kenyan celebrities have never shied from celebrating their father figures both on and off social media, with others preferring to show off their mothers.
Below are a number of Kenyan celebrities who have introduced us to their loving fathers and who stand by them through thick and thin.
Celebrated singer Kambua Mathu lost her father almost four years ago but that has never stopped her from celebrating and honoring him.
Kambua’s father Professor Manundu who used to host a health show on NTV passed away in 2014.
One of her posts reads, I think of you often. Everyday. Sometimes with tears but more with a smile. I will never forget the day your heart stopped beating and mine continued to beat. I wanted mine to stop too. I felt like it did. But God in His wisdom saw it fit that I’d be here creating part of your legacy and more.
Wahu who turned into gospel music is wife to popular African-pop singer Nameless, and the two are the longest married couples in the Kenyan music industry with over a decade together.
Wahu went through the darkest time of her life when she lost her beloved dad, Mr.Kagwi, back in 2013, January 12th, though it was not clear what the cause of the death was.
Well, the singer has since accepted the loss and has been staying positive while taking care of her mother who has been widowed for 5 years now.
Media personality, Grace Msalame lost her dad Tony Msalame, on May 28, 2010.
The veteran broadcaster-cum-comedian passed away after collapsing at his Shekki FM studios at his home in Nyali in Mombasa.
Mr. Msalame is fondly remembered for his radio quiz show Zum Zum kipindi cha kuongeza maarifa on KBC that he co-hosted with Tido Mhando. In 1996, Mr Msalame joined Metro FM where he is famed for his Shekki Leggi (shake your leg) show at weekends.
President Uhuru Kenyatta is a celebrity dad to Jaba Kenyatta, Jomo Kenyatta and Ngina Kenyatta. Unlike many top ranked politicians who shy from making public appearances with their children, the Kenyatta’s have become popular figures thanks to their numerous appearances normally during state functions.
Speaking of politicians and their children, Rt Honorable Raila Odinga is another seasoned politician who loves to move around with his children in public.
Raila is a celebrity dad to the late Fidel Odinga, Ms Rosemary Odinga, Winnie Odinga and Raila Odinga Jr.
On more than one occasion, deputy president William Ruto has publicly paraded his six children insisting on how dear they are to him terming them as the reason behind his hard work in life.
Just like his boss, president Kenyatta, Ruto is often accompanied by his children during state occasions.
Gospel artiste and Tusker Project season 5 winner Ruth Matete is the daughter to celebrated Kenyan actor, Abel Amunga.
The multi-talented artiste and the founder of Ruth Matete Music Academy, the only child was raised by a single father, Abel Amunga.
She became a national sensation back in 2012 when she beat other contestants in the TPF competition, to win the much coveted Sh5million cash prize.
A few days after international chef Anthony Bourdain committed suicide local celebrity Kambua has opened up on having been depressed on a few occasions.
People with depression are looked down upon by the society and close family members with some being termed as ‘crazy ‘ and a nuisance which is not always the case,most cases of people with severe depression always ends up with the victim trying to take their life.
#Depression is REAL. As real as the air you breathe. I don’t know how many more people we need to lose to suicide in order for us to acknowledge that mental illness is a serious condition that needs treatment like the flu, or cancer… So many of us are fronting while dying a little every day. Too afraid to ask for help because people will talk, judge, or dismiss you. “It’s all in your head”, they say. Well YES it is in the head & heart. A brokeness in the mind, that can be fixed if we allow people to seek help. Someone earlier argued that therapy is expensive- I hear you. But getting help is not limited to sitting with a therapist. It could be a friend, a family member, a colleague… but the moment we make it seem as though there are no options is the very moment we take a plunge. Look, I’ve sometimes called a friend, or my mom and simply said, “I’m losing the plot”. And they’ve come to my aid. We all need help from time to time. Life can get so hard, but you don’t have to go at it alone. I know of FREE helplines if you want to talk to somebody. Also, if you’re reading this and you’re on the verge of giving up, please don’t give up. Please don’t give up. Please. Don’t give up. 🖤🌸 #2018#ReflectionswithKambua#mentalillness#Depression. If you’ve ever lost someone to suicide, place a heart here. Here’s mine: 💙
Kambua advised people who feel depressed not to fear asking for help as she had done so herself without fear of victimization,Depression affects anyone and every one regardless of social status nor class
Marriage is ordained by God and whoever finds a good wife /husband finds favor from above. Married local gospel artistes are enjoying that favor completely.
Although most artistes are in the public limelight, most of them have managed to keep their spouses away from the limelight leaving Kenyans guessing whom the artiste is married to or dating. Most of the artistes are married by laid back spouses who do not enjoy being in the limelight .
Such artistes make such decisions to be able to protect their spouse from public scrutiny, public attack and for privacy purposes which is something most of these artistes do not enjoy.
Below are some of the gospel artistes and their spouses.
The soft spoken gospel artiste is married to the love of her life Jackson Mathu who is a church minister. The two have been married for six years and we must say they look good together.
Mercy is known for her uplifting music such as ‘Nikupendeze’ ‘Mwema ‘ and’ shule yako’. Apart from being a musician she is also a mother and a wife to a supportive husband David Mugoro.
Although Mugoro is always away from the limelight, the two have been spotted together on different occasions.
Mama Wambo as she is known is married to DJ Mo who is also in the gospel industry. The two are considered a power couple given the fact that both of them are in the lime light and are brands by their own rights.
He who finds a wife finds favour from the Lord so they say and gospel artiste Daddy Owen is a lucky man for being blessed with a beautiful wife Faridah Wambui who chose him to not only be her husband but father to her kids as well.
The ‘Lingala Ya Yesu’ hit maker is not only talented in music but he is also a good husband and father. He is married to his sweetheart Carol Mwai with whom they have two kids.
Cyber bullying is on the rise and more local celebrities are becoming victims of these acts perpetuated by unknown people.
The impact of cyber bullying is massive, with victims sometimes committing suicide. From Larry Madowo to Victoria Rubadiri, here is a list of 10 Kenyan celebrities who have not been spared from trollying by social media bullies.
1. Pierra Makena
The beautiful damsel has been on the receiving end of trolls due to her weight gain after the birth of her daughter. She has spoken out about it, admitting that a woman’s body goes through a lot of transformation after child bearing and it only takes a courageous woman to accept the changes.
Pierra indicated she would only lose the weight when she felt the time is right and her daughter is big enough.
2. Carol Odero
Citizen TV’S fashion watch analyst Carol Odero came under a lot of criticism a few weeks ago after criticizing Meghan Markle’s dress and make up saying it came short of her expectations.
Kenyans who would hear none of it trolled her telling her that her make up and code of dressing is what needed an upgrade given that she wears alot of make up, with most questioning if she has something to hide.
3. Size 8
Mama Wambo has also not been spared by trolls and on countless occassions. Her performance during a recent public holiday did not please many who termed it ‘poor’.
She has also been dragged for makeup gone wrong.
The soft spoken beauty has not been spared. During a New Years performance in Nakuru, she snatched a microphone from her colleague and the internet went in on her.
On different occasions cyber bullies have attacked her for not bearing a child, Kambua responded to her haters that it is not good to judge some one since you do not know what they are going through.
5. Cathy Kiuna
‘Mum’ as she is fondly known by her followers has not been spared from cyber bullying. Most noteably was when it was alleged she told girls not to marry poor men.
6. Nyota Ndogo
‘Kuna Watu Na Viatu ‘ songstress has been under attack for her poor make up during her wedding. the photos went viral and she blamed her photographer for using poor lighting.
Nyota always responds to trolls.
8. Dk Kwenye Beat
The Kayole talent has come under heavy criticism for his weight. Meme’s and jokes were made to get the message to him.
Even though Dk has not lost his weight, we sure hope he does at some point.
9. Jimmy Gait
Gospel artiste Jimmy came under the harsh attack of cyber bullies after releasing a mash up of ‘Hello’ by Adelle, which left many Kenyans with more questions than answers.
The bullying caused him to cry on air during a live Tv interview on the The Trend. Since that episode he says things have never really been the same.
10. Khaligraph Jones
He came under attack for people saying that he had ‘bleached’ his skin something he refuted completely.
“Long post alert* So for the last couple of weeks I decided to disable my comments on most of my pictures🚫. I know it frustrated some of you and I appreciate all who slid into my DM to find out what the deal was💁🏾. Anyway, this is it. I have been feeling for a while that there are many voices in my life🗣. Most, well-meaning, but still, many. It’s so easy to lose yourself even to the applause and admiration of people. Social media is such a crazy place I must say! One moment you’re crucified, and the next your praises are sang. Whoa. Such a confusing place to be🙆🏽! I’m learning how to be still. How to be OK without the applause… without the noise. I’m learning that sometimes the voice of The Shepherd can be drowned out by other voices; by the wind, and the storms. And that sometimes The Shepherd speaks, but we cannot possibly hear Him above the racket. So how about you try it. For me, it’s the socials. For you, maybe it’s noise from somewhere else that you just need to tune out for a while. He is always speaking…are you listening? Love always,”
Well by now, Kenyan celebrities should be used to it and should learn how to ignore and be positive on everything.
Emotions can be dangerous and can destroy oneself.
Other celebrities who are constantly trolled are Betty Kyallo, Lilian Muli who has indicated she has grown a thick skin, and nothing you say can shock or upset her. She has even blocked her baby daddy, wewe ni nani?
Gospel singer Kambua has not been spared the savagery that comes with trolls.
She knows all too well that this comes with the territory of being a celeb. Most recently she was forced to delete an apology when social media users hit out at her for creating drama during the Vuka New Years bash.
The Citizen TV host’s apology was the talk of town for a while, but it’s clear she moved on.
Speaking to Kiss FM’s Chito Ndlovu, Kambua spoke extensively about her marriage, and how it’s been six years on.
Many peoples marriages are under attack, young people are beginning to feel like I don’t need to get married, because there is alot of stuff going on. How are you protecting your marriage?
A: Uhmm you know I don’t know how people do it without God, or and I’m not trying to super spiritualize this, but when you think of two people coming from two very different world, trying to merge and create one world, honestly it takes God to make it work. So, uhhmm yeah, six years into it so far so good, and I think that just learning to be friends with the person that you are married to, uhmm because you know that all that fluffly, lovey dovey feeling it kind of just
‘..after you have kind of just, you’re in each others face, you’re not always feeling like oh my God..you’re heart is not always like you know! but uhmm he’s my friend, and I love to hang out with him, I love to spend time with him, so being friend with the person that you are married to and having God as a foundation’.
Does he read all the blogs, that refer to him as an ancestor and their marriage?
A: uhmm you know one of the things I’m really grateful for is that I met a really strong man, and it’s because of him being strong that has helped me in my ministry, in my career, that he is not phased or moved by what people say, and for the moments where I’ve gone through things and felt ..ok..this has really hurt me, he has been there to speak life to me and to encourage me so you know,…how he feels about honestly..if there’s anyone who is not bothered, it’s my husband.. and I’m learning, he is teaching me how to do that, how to not care because either way, regardless of what you do, people will always have an opinion. It just comes with the territory, so yeah, he is cool.
A lot has been said about Kambua’s husband Jackson Mathu. With fans saying she was married to a much older man than she is, the Bado Nasimama hit maker has finally spoken up.
Talking to Amina Abdi on The Trend, Kambua has cleared things saying her hubby is not old as many would think. She adds that they are barely a decade apart.
“We are barely a decade apart he and I. even if he was 20 or 30, if he was the one who chose me I would still love him and it still would not matter what people say. I know people will have an opinion over everything, does he have children? they will have an opinion, they will not like it.”
She adds that the white hair her hubby spots is one thing that deceives fans that he is old. And yes, she likes it just like that….white.
“My husband is the best thing that has happened to me. He has white hair which I really love and because he has white hair people say he is so old.”
