From Grass To Grace: This Is The Humble Story Of The 100 Bob Wedding Groom

Many have talked about the 100 bob wedding couple. Their simplistic life and pure love for each other has touched everyone who has come across their life story. Well, here is a background story on the 100 bob groom, Wilson Mutura Wanjohi.

Wilson was employed as a fruit seller at Kasarani. Note: He did not own the fruit stand, he was an employee. That did not stop him from loving his job and executing it to the best of his abilities.

According to social media activist Ndungu Nyoro, Wilson was passionate about everything he did from his job to serving the church as a choir member.

HE SAYS,”WHEN IT CAME TO CHURCH MATTERS, HE SERVED GOD WITH ALL HIS HEART AND SOUL. HE IS A MEMBER OF PRAISE AND WORSHIP TEAM. THE MORNING BEFORE THEIR KSHS 100 WEDDING, HE DANCED PASSIONATELY DURING PRAISE AND WORSHIP SESSION BEFORE DASHING TO BUY THE TWO RINGS THAT WOULD BE USED FOR THEIR ‘CEREMONY’. WILSON HAPPILY WEDDED ANNE IN THE SIMPLEST WEDDING OF THE YEAR. AND BECAUSE HE HONOURED GOD, OUR LORD HONOURED HIM TOO.”

The couple had a grand do-over wedding on Valentine’s day surrounded by friends and family. Check out the photos in the link below.

Wilson is still stunned at how his life has changed. He doesn’t have to go back to his job as a fruit vendor but rather, he can become a supplier of fruits and fresh produce to his former boss. They got a 1 million bob wedding present that will cater for that.

Posting a photo of his days as fruit vendor beside the photos of his honeymoon, Wilson wrote on his Facebook page,

“COMPARE NOW, GOD IS ALWAYS FAITHFUL.”

Wilbroda Is An Attractive Woman! Papa Shirandula Salivates For On Screen Wife (EXCLUSIVE)

We all know him as Papa Shirandula from his popular local TV comedy and Charles Bukeko (Papa Shirandula) is one man who has hit the headlines with his never-ending jokes.

papa shirandula 1

It has been years after he and popular TV actress Wilbroda – who is well known as his wife on screen – had an on-screen relationship. And yes, acting is a career where you may have to pretend to be in love but sometimes the act may actually become reality. Just ask Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

When asked if he is in love with screen wife, Jackie Nyaminde, aka Wilbroda, Papa Shirandula poured his heart out citing that Wilbroda was an attractive and beautiful woman. Could he be falling in love with his “fake” wife?

The internet went wild after he had one of the most flamboyant weddings in the country, leaving many middle aged women crying into their pillows. Papa has, however, had quite a journey as an actor with him moving to Nairobi’s Eastlands, from where he would trek daily to the National Theatre.

This is what he had to say about Wilbroda;

“Wilbroda is a beautiful woman, a strong woman and she has everything a woman should have. Any man can get attracted to her….She is beautiful.”

Eunice Njeri Talks About Her Valentine’s Day Plans (AUDIO)

Eunice Njeri is one of the most popular praise and worship gospel artists in the land. Don’t take my word for it, just check out how many views her songs get on Youtube and the number of times her songs are requested on gospel shows.

Word went round recently that she had opted to call it quits on her marriage and hadn’t even bothered to sign her marriage certificate. She didn’t just divorce Izzo Raps, she annulled their marriage -she literally refreshed everything like it had never happened!

Eunice Njeri Announces Separation From ‘Husband’ Just Few Months After Tying The Knot

Understandingly, she has been dodging the media ever since she broke news of the annulment on her social media profiles. She was a smart enough to control the narrative then refused to say more than she was willing to.

Our questions were thus left hanging…

Her silence has been pervasive until today. I called her up and asked after her plans for Valentines and when she heard it was Uncle Chim Tuna calling, she acquiesced and gave a short statement:

Emmy Kosgei Makes Sweet Admission About Her Marriage To Apostle Anselm

It is Valentine’s day and people are showing the colour of their heart. And it bleeds love -nothing but love. However, Emmy Kosgei has made an interesting revelation about her relationship with Apostle Anselm Madubuko.

Emmy Kosgei doesn’t shy away from showing off her love for the man of God who is almost twice her age.

Fans have been waiting for the award-winning megastar known for hits like Taai and Taunet Nelel to announce the eventual addition to the family.

Here’s How Emmy Kosgei Inspires Us To Celebrate Our BFF’s This Weekend

Emmy Kosgei’s Valentine’s message dripped of nothing but love.

“I love this man.. he is the best thing that happened to me! I’m blessed with a loving and prayerful man, I’m blessed that I didn’t miss my divine moment.. Anselm Madubuko you mean the world to me! I’m wiser, deeper in things of God, you’ve made me a better person! You’ve shown me love and care.. I feel so special????????????????????… Nkem!” she wrote.

She also revealed that marriages are hard work, especially after Eunice Njeri’s lasted 24-hours.

EMMY WROTE, “YOU ARE THE GOD I SEE????????..I LOVE YOU TO THE MOON AND BEYOND..! I DONT TAKE THIS FOR GRANTED COZ MANY MARRIAGES ARE GOING THRU FIRE,OTHERS HAVE DIVORCED,OTHERS ARE HANGING IN THERE,OTHERS ARE HEARTBROKEN… I AM GREATFUL HUN.AND I KEEP THEM IN PRAYERS..

‘Why I Am Alone This Valentine’s Day,’ Gospel Star Mbuvi Explains

Valentine’s Day is a day for all those love birds who make the single people cringe. Thus it is probably the worst time to be alone as you watch everyone else couple up, but for renown gospel artiste, Mbuvi, he really has no choice.

It seems Mbuvi will be spending his Valentine’s all alone. The star was linked to the gorgeous Kambua before she was stolen away from the life of singlehood by, Pastor Jackson Mathu.

Drama Free! Top 10 Kenyan Gospel Artistes Who Have Managed To Keep Scandals Away

So, is the Kwata Kawire singer single and available? Has he found someone to warm his bed? Why is he spending Valentine’s all alone?

Mbuvi explained,

“NO I AM NOT AVAILABLE. I AM ACTUALLY DATING SOMEONE, BUT WE HAVE AGREED TO KEEP IT ON THE DOWN LOW. UNFORTUNATELY THIS VALENTINES I AM WORKING, I’LL BE MAKING A CELEBRITY APPEARANCE AT THE AFTER 40 HOTEL IN TOWN SO I CAN’T TAKE MY BABY ALONG.”

Being a celeb comes with its own issues, while regular people flaunt their bae’s with no second thought celebs have to think twice.

Exposing your significant other to the drama of publicity and constant attention from fans can cause serious issues in the relationship.

Though some celebs choose to go public with their relationships, Mbuvi has chosen to keep private things private.

He says:

“THE DINE WITH THE STAR’S CAMPAIGN THAT I AM HEADLINING WILL HAVE A LOT OF MEDIA ATTENTION SO I CAN’T COME WITH MY GIRLFRIEND. I GUESS THIS VALENTINE I WILL HAVE TO FLY SOLO.”

The mid-morning radio presenter recently took over from the previous radio host at Classic 105, and so far, she has proved that she can fit into the role, with a unique style of presentation and interaction with her fans.

The beautiful presenter is also a lover of love and being Valentine’s Day, I took the chance to find out a few things about Mimmy’s Valentine’s plans, and of course took the chance ask her about her love life and more.

Mimmy Khamis is laid back when it comes to talking about her personal life, and most of the time, she likes to keep it professional. That, however, doesn’t mean that she doesn’t have a life outside the Classic 105 studios.

When we finally sat down for the interview, the bubbly Mimmy was calm and collected, as she waited anxiously for the questions I was going to ask her about Valentine’s and relationships.

mimmy-khamis-2

My first question was about the qualities her ideal man should have, and on that note, Mimmy Khamis revealed that she’s happily dating, as well as she whether she would date a guy shorter who is than her (she’s 5 foot 10 inches).

Another interesting thing that Mimmy spoke about was whether she would go on a blind date on Valentine’s Day, and her worst Valentine’s ever. Speaking of dates, the pretty radio host confessed that she would kiss a guy on the first date…very interesting huh?

Watch the short video below as Mimmy Khamis talks about Valentine’s Day and dating. Oh, and also find out if she would prefer chocolates, flowers, teddy bear or a bottle of wine as a gift and if she would go to Uhuru Park for a date on this lover’s day.

Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and pretty soon, the town will be painted red. Literally!

Your significant other will probably be on your case for the next few days, bugging you and giving hints of what they want. Some might even go missing for a while, even switching off their phones and their explanation will probably be, “Babe, you know my phone has problems…”, – Yeah, we’ve heard that before!

neomi

Well, there are those who are a bit serious and actually take the time to celebrate this special day. My question is, why shouldn’t we love each every single day?

Kissing is a really affectionate form of expression. We kiss our parents, siblings, friends and lovers and is known as a form of communication that is almost always connected to love. So, if you don’t know how to kiss your lover, don’t fret. It’s not too late to learn.

Actress Neomi Nganga, has taken her sweet time to teach you, or rather give you tips on how to be a good kisser.

Neomi

She wrote, “Have you ever had a bad kissing experience? Semeni ukweli… Anyway, if you would like to become a better kisser, here are a few tips for you:
1. Freshen up – avoid having a bad breath
2. Work your eyes – Kissing with your eyes wide open is very creepy….aiiih.
3. Take your time since kissing is team effort between you two.

5. Be spontaneous.
6. Control your saliva.
7. EXPLORE

‘I Would Like To Introduce The Man In My Life,’ Betty Kyallo Shouts

Betty Kyallo almost caused a frenzy at her Pre valentine’s party when she made a captivating confession.

During the launch of her high-end beauty spa, Betty Kyallo gave a speech about what inspired the business idea. For the very expensive business venture, she has partnered with her best friend, Susan Kaittany.

Betty is very family oriented and her mum was also present at the launch. Check out the details below;

Three months after the launch, Betty’s business seems to have flourished, big time. This was so successful, they even hosted a post pre-Valentine’s party for their customers telling them “Asante sana”.

Betty Kyallo

As the night wore on, the party that was hosted at the rooftop of Sifa Towers, came to order when Betty started addressing the crowd. She introduced her business partner then went on to talk about the benefits of becoming a platinum member of the business. As a member, the fortunate few would be getting discounted prices for trips to exotic holiday destinations as well as expensive dress shops etc.

Anyhow, that is not my point. During her speech, she paused and said,

“I WOULD LIKE TO INTRODUCE TO YOU THE ONLY MAN IN MY LIFE!”

This caused a frenzy among members of the press to say the least. They were all jostling and shoving to get a photo of this new man.

After a few very tense moments, Betty finally pulled the man into the limelight, and lo and behold…it turned out to be her brother.

Mcheeew! What an anti-climax.

This is him by the way, and to his credit, he’s quite easy on the eye.

But in this case, let’s keep it on the romantic side of the day.

Cate Sidede decided to start the Valentine’s Day mood by asking a very sensitive question about ladies receiving gifts, and not just from anyone, but a married man.

holidays-valentines-day

The cheerful radio presenter candidly asked the listeners, more so girls, if they would accept a gift for Valentine’s Day from a man who was married and whether it was even appropriate in the first place.

The conversation was received with mixed reactions from both the lasses and dudes, with some ladies boldly saying that there’s no big deal since it’s the man who wants to spend his money on them.

On the other hand, others revealed that it’s not acceptable at all since he should be giving gifts to his wife and not other women. One particular man called in, saying that he doesn’t see the big deal, as long as there’s nothing going on between them.

But most of the guys were not okay with it, saying that it’s immoral. Check out some comments below and listen the short audio to hear what some listeners thought.

The gift won’t go like that. Unacheza na wazito. Utapelepwetwa vibaya sana

Kenyans Respond To Why Men Are Afraid Of Their Women Climbing The Corporate Ladder

Today’s conversation was based on an event that occurred recently. A certain club held their elections and a lady was chosen to be the chair of the club’s board. This would mean she would have to travel for work and her career is set to blossom. This got Maina wondering; how would Kenyans, namely the men react to their wives climbing the corporate ladder?

Kenyans on social media respond to women who plot to harm their husbands

Why are Kenyan men so backward that they cannot support their wives’ success all in the name of who is the head of the home? Some men felt that pride kicks in when a woman is at a higher position in the corporate world and it can only mean trouble.

This conversation caused quite the stir on social media as Kenyans candidly gave their opinions. Below are some of the comments;

 

Pesa Otas! 100 Bob Wedding Couple Can Now Own Millions

The young couple that touched the hearts of many Kenyans by holding a wedding worth just Sh100 has received an investment project worth a million shillings from a well wisher. Let’s call them the 100 bob wedding couple….

The investment from a well known real estate company includes an eighth acre plot valued at half a million shillings with a Sh320,000 greenhouse and capsicum crop in Isinya, Kajiado County.

The company’s Sales and Marketing Director Edwin Khiranga said ‘the management responded to the heartwarming social media story that the young couple’s wedding received’.

“And this is to let you know that as you start your journey into marriage, this is an investment. You will now be farmers by extension where you will be getting at least Sh450,000 returns per year,” said Khiranga while handing over the investment to Wilson Wanjohi, 27, and Ann Muhonja, 23.

The young couple came into the limelight a week ago after someone shared the story about their modest wedding at the Community Christian Worship Church in Kasarani on Sunday, January 22.

The wedding allegedly cost only Sh100 with which Wanjohi used to buy two rings, each at Sh50.

The story received reception from hundreds, prompting well wishers to come together and offer to sponsor the couple’s honeymoon at the exotic Diani beach in Mombasa.

The young couple has also been sponsored to a grand wedding where family and friends will get an opportunity to celebrate their nuptials.

After 100 Bob Wedding, Young Kenyan Couple Receive BIGGEST Surprise Of Their Lives (PHOTOS)

The Kenyan couple who caused a lot of excitement on social media after holding what many would consider as a cheap wedding on Sunday, January 22, 2017, have received what may be the biggest gift in their entire lives.

The wedding between 27-year old Wilson Wanjohi Mutura and his 23-year-old fiancée (now wife) Anne Muhonja cost Sh100 only (that is for the two rings each at Sh50).

However, the couple, who met three years ago, never anticipated that a simple wedding would be broadcast to every Kenyan who has been online in the past few days.

For a man who could not proceed beyond class 8 because of the economic status of his family in Ndunyu Njeru (Kinangop), Wilson says that he’s the most learned in his family. He’s the 5th born in a family of 8 siblings.

But his new wife from Karandi in Nyahururu completed high school in 2015.

The two had planned to tie the knot in December 2016 and all their church’ members were looking forward to it.

On the Sunday of January 22, Wilson had Sh200 in his pocket. He went to church as usual but waited after praise and worship session then dashed to a malimali shop where he bought the rings at Sh100.

“UNFORTUNATELY WE COULD NOT RAISE MONEY FOR THE WEDDING. I AM EMPLOYED TO SELL APPLES IN A MKOKOTENI WHERE I’M PAID ON COMMISSION. IF I SELL APPLES WORTH SH1,000, I AM PAID SH100. HAVING NOT RAISED THE CASH, WE CANCELLED THE WEDDING,” SAYS WILSON.

“The remainder is what we took for our first supper as a married couple,” he says.

Following the excitement on social media, Kenyans have come out to sponsor the couple with a lavish wedding, among other surprises.

An events planning company has offered a fully sponsored wedding to give Wilson & Anne an opportunity to celebrate with friends and family.

A well-established tours and travel company has offered an all expenses paid honeymoon package for the couple.

A Kenyan cinema production house has offered to provide a free make-up artist and free photoshoot on Valentine’s Day, for the couple.

A Kenyan in U.S has pledged start-up capital for a small business for the two.

An M-Changa account has also been set up to pool funds to assist the young couple set up a small business enterprise.

God surely answers prayers in mysterious ways.

“I MAKE IT INTO THE THEATRE AND FIND HER SMALL BODY  ON THE TABLE ALL COVERED IN SURGICAL CLOTH. SHE SMILES AND I SEE SHE IS AWAKE AND NERVOUS. SHE SAYS, “I CAN’T FEEL ANYTHING”. SO I HOLD HER HAND AND KISS HER FOREHEAD GENTLY. I SAID TO HER, “THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING”. OUR CHARMING DOCTOR NARRATES, “NOT FAR TO GO… ANY MINUTE NOW”, AS HIS TEAM OPERATES ON MY WIFE.

I COULD SEE HOW BADLY SHE WANTED TO HOLD HIM. I CLENCH HER HAND EVEN TIGHTER AND CONSOLE HER. HE WAS WHISKED AWAY FOR NORMAL CHECKS AND A WIPE DOWN. THE DOCTOR ALLOWS ME TO GO AROUND AND WATCH THE NURSE AND HIM. IN MY EXCITEMENT I GO AROUND THE FROM WHERE MY DEAR WIFE IS CUT OPEN…. THAT’S FOR ANOTHER BLOG!!!,” HE CONTINUED.

A Mother’s Instincts: Woman Breastfeeds Her Best Friend’s Adopted Baby After Losing Her Own

Lauren Casper, 31, and Sarah Rieke, 30, from Virginia, did all the things normal best friends do – except one thing.

Three years ago, after losing her own newborn daughter in tragic circumstances, Rieke offered to breastfeed her friend’s newborn adopted daughter, Arsema, with her own milk.

‘I didn’t feel like what I was doing was that special at the time. I had this milk, and she had a baby. And while I was in a time of weeping, and she was in one of rejoicing, we were both able to acknowledge each other’s situations. I actually found breastfeeding Arsema quite therapeutic,’ she said.

Happiness: Ms Casper pictured with Arsema

Back in 2013, Rieke had been expecting her own baby girl, while Casper was about to adopt a little girl.

Both women hoped their daughters would grow up to be best friends as they were, and the pair had already spoken about entering the next stage of motherhood together.

When Evie was born, in November 2012, she only lived for four hours before Rieke had to say goodbye. ‘I was so tearful over my situation,’ she said.

Mothers and daughters: Pictured above - Ms Rieke with little Evie

A week later, Rieke made what many might consider to be a difficult decision. Because she was still producing breast milk, she decided to offer it to her best friend, Casper, who couldn’t feed little Arsema because she was adopted:

‘Breastfeeding Arsema helped me with my grief. While obviously, there were occasions when I wished I could have been breastfeeding my own daughter, and I did often think that I wished our girls could grow up together, it meant the world to me to do something for a friend who had been there for me throughout my life,’ she says.

Best of friends: Sarah Rieke (left) and Lauren Casper (right) are the best of friends - and when Ms Rieke lost her own child and Ms Casper adopted Arsema (in her arms), Ms Rieke offered to breastfeed her

Casper has now moved away from where Rieke lives, but the two remain firm friends. Rieke believes she does have a special relationship with the now four-year-old Arsema:

Any time we get together, it is wonderful. I have other children now and have since lost another child. It never gets any easier, but on the second occasion, I didn’t have the emotional energy nor the opportunity to offer my breast milk up.’

Beautiful gift: She says that she didn't believe what she was doing at the time was very special: 'I had this milk, and she had a baby', (Arsema pictured)

According to Rieke, breastfeeding Arsema will always be a special memory.

She says: ‘Lauren totally wasn’t expecting me to offer, but I knew she was being genuine when she told me it would mean the world to her if I did. I don’t know whether my breast milk has affected Arsema, but I like to think it helped her in some way.’

Therapeutic: Ms Rieke says that though the pair were going through two very different emotions, she actually found breastfeeding little Arsema (pictured age 4) quite therapeutic

Beauty And Brains! News Anchor Kanze Dena Gives Women Tips On How To Love Their Men

Citizen TV’s Swahili news anchor and news director, Kanze Dena is one of the most popular and respected media personalities in Kenya.

She is humble, soft-spoken and likes to keep her private life away from the public radar, but her warm smile keeps viewers glued throughout the 7pm bulletin.

What most people don’t know about Kanze Dena is that before she got the courage to stand in front of a camera, is that she suffered from low self-esteem when growing up.

The beautiful presenter never believed in herself when she was younger and attributes her successful career in the media industry to her hard work and finding courage.

Though she is not married, Kellen Beatrice Kanze Dena is blessed with an adorable 10-year-old son, Amani, who she got after loosing her mother back in 2007.

Kanze Dena’s son

Before getting Amani, Kanze Dena was pregnant back in college and delivered a bouncing baby girl, Natasha, who sadly, died just after 3 months, something that got her deeply heart-broken.

But now, that is behind her and she has overcome the past. She has now decided to share words of encouragement on love to other women, especially in relationships and marriage. This is what she posted;

LOVE DOES NOT DELIGHT IN EVIL.. Today take time to pray through your areas of wrong doing. Ask for God’s forgiveness, then humble yourself to admit them to your significant other..
Now in most cases the other person is always the problem while we are the Saints who never do anything wrong..(me included) ? I believe its time to take stock today swallow your pride and be true to yourself. (Rom 3:23)Wahenga wa ‘kienglish’ walisema: IT TAKES TWO TO TANGO…today’s challenge I believe will be the a breathe of fresh air if we carry it out to the tee

Her other post on love read:

LOVE KEEPS NO RECORD OF WRONGS.. today on a sheet of paper spend time writing any negative things you know or wish were different about your significant other. Pray about this things and the pain and irritation they have brought you. Then burn that sheet of paper and choose to forgive them as Christ has forgiven you. Don’t wait till you feel like forgiving..LET IT GO. unforgiveness has been keeping you and your significant other in prison for too long..say from your heart. I CHOOSE TO FORGIVE!

10 Questions To Ask On A First Date To Avoid Wasting Time On A Second One

How about we look at some of the questions to ask on a first date that are bound to give you the answers you might want to know about someone you’re considering to date.

These questions are also sure to spark more conversation between the two of you, leading to both of you learning more about each other than you probably expected to.

Depending on the responses you get to these 10 questions, you’ll surely know whether or not date number two will be happening in the future.

1. What was the last book/article you read?
A person who doesn’t read willingly is very unattractive. It also says a lot about their level of intelligence and a keen intellect is a must on your list of qualities to look for in the people you date.

2. What are your goals/ambitions?
It’s important to know whether or not they have goals and aspirations. You don’t want to become involved with someone who doesn’t seem to have any direction in their life. I also find that people without goals or ambitions usually don’t have a zest for life and are very boring.

3. What kind of music do you like?
The kind of music a person listens to says a lot about who they are. Who would not like a man who has a wide selection of genres and enjoys bonding with people over a good, mutual taste in music. Generally, I think you can tell if you two would ‘vibe’ based off of the type of music you’re both into.

black-african-american-couple-dinner-date

4. What are your hobbies or interests?
I like this question because again, you’re getting to learn more about the type of person they are. You might even find that you two share a number of interests or that you two are complete opposites. This would ultimately let you know if a second date is necessary.

5. What do you like to do for fun?
I don’t know anyone who wants to date someone who is boring. It’s always interesting to learn what people do to entertain themselves. It’s fun to see how laid back, adventurous, artistic, or creative a person is based on how they answer this question.

6. Are you family-oriented?
This is another important quality to look for in the person you are considering to date. I am very family-oriented and would like for the person I’m dating to be as well. You may or may not be into the family scene, but I think this question is a great one to ask on a first date.

black-couple-on-a-date

7. What are your pet peeves?
I think it’s interesting learning about what makes a person tick. Not for any particular reason, but the answers are sure to continue to drive your conversation.

8. Do you have any hidden talents?
Have you ever looked at someone and tried to imagine what kinds of things they are into? Well, it’s actually hard to do that. This question makes that easier by asking a person if they have any hidden talents. People naturally like to talk about themselves. This question offers some great conversation based on the answers given.

dating

9. What is your best quality?
Again, people naturally like to talk about themselves. This is a great conversation driver. It also makes your date think pretty deeply. I also think it shows whether or not that person is used to thinking positively about themselves. Imagine someone who can’t recognize any good qualities within themselves.

10. Who in your life are you closest to?
