Former Machachari actor Almasi speaks out about about what haters do when ‘they see you breaking the barriers’

Cyber bullying has become common in Kenya nowadays. Celebrities regardless of age are caught in the centre of it.

Former Machachari actor Almasi, whose real name is Ian Munene is an easy target for trolls and he has been criticised severally for cross-dressing.

Almasi

Recently, he addressed this and in his social media post he wrote:

“Someone Asked Me What My Style Is… I basically Take Things From My Wardrobe and Mix and Match Them Till I Find The Best Fits 😝 Or Just Wear All Black and Get out The House. Oooh And Vans work with EVERYTHING!! Such an Investment 😏.”

Well, Almasi, who was branded gay by a section of online users cleared the air and said he wasn’t one. (Click on the link below to read what Almasi said)

‘I’m Not Gay!’ Machachari Actor Almasi Responds To Claims That He Is A Homosexual

The multi-talented actor-cum-model has yet again spoken out about cyber bullies and he says that people can say whatever they want, but only God can judge him. On his Youtube channel, he said:

“Anytime you try to rise to the top, there is always going to be people trying to bring you down. If someone is not saying it to your face and using a social media platform to tell you something bad or something rude or negative then don’t pay attention to it. If someone truly means something negative they should have the confidence to say it to your face. If it is something they can’t say to your face, straight up, then you don’t need to care about it.”

Adding that:

“Also people will try to bring you down when they see you doing something they don’t have the balls to do. When they see you breaking the barriers, or not following the norm, they will always talk crap. Keep on doing you, keep on perfecting you.”

“I don’t conform to rules, I wear what I like, I’ll do what I like and nobody is gonna tell me anything. People will talk badly but at the end of the day I’m going to live my life,” he concluded.

Well, below are photos of Almasi that left tongues wagging because of his dress code.

The one thing you didn’t know about Baha of Machachari and Tahidi High’s Omosh

Tyler Mbaya aka Baha and Omosh born Peter Kinuthia are some of the best actors the country has ever produced. Baha started acting at a tender age in the famous Makutano Junction before moving to Machachari, a local children’s programme which airs every Friday 7:30 pm on Citizen TV.

Omosh, a multitalented actor is among the pioneer actors, who made Tahidi High what it is today. Although he’s always on and off Tahidi High, Omosh stands out as the best actor.

Baha, who lost his mother, Wanade also an actor recently shared his sad life story and he has for sure grown into a strong man.

“WHEN MUM PASSED ON, I WAS A FORM ONE STUDENT AT NAIROBI SCHOOL. I IMMEDIATELY TRANSFERRED TO CHANIA BOYS HIGH SCHOOL WHERE MY BROTHER WAS FOR MORAL SUPPORT SO THAT WE COULD GRIEVE AND OVERCOME OUR MUM’S DEATH TOGETHER. However, IN MY FOURTH YEAR, I JOINED UFANISI SENIOR SCHOOL WHERE I SAT FOR MY KSCE,” he said.

Adding that:

“I FINISHED HIGH SCHOOL AGED 16 LAST YEAR. THIS IS BECAUSE I DEMANDED TO BE TAKEN TO SCHOOL WHEN MY BROTHER, WHO IS TWO YEARS OLDER THAN ME, STARTED SCHOOLING. I DID NOT WANT TO BE LET ALONE. I WAS ABLE TO ACT AND AT THE SAME TIME CONTINUE WITH MY EDUCATION BECAUSE I WAS ALWAYS ALLOWED TO HAVE ONE WEEKEND OFF TO ATTEND THE SHOOTS.”

Mama Baha Of Machachari TV Show Begs For Help To Trace Her Kidnapped Brother

Wanjiku Mburu who plays the character of Mama Bahati on the once popular TV show Machachari has reached out to President Uhuru Kenyatta regarding a matter that is close to her heart. 

You see, three years ago, Wanjiku Mburu’s brother was kidnapped by unknown assailants and he has never been seen since. Mama Baha took to her social media accounts to share this open letter to the president of the Republic of Kenya:

“See Mr. President my brother was kidnapped and it’s now 3 years since and nothing from you or your office…after everything has been said and done, it’s been said and NOTHING done.
So this is me hoping with everything going on, your re-election, Githeri man raising to fame you will get to read this and bring my brother home…3 years, I think he has done his “time”. His children need their father, his wife-a husband, his parents- a son and me- MY BROTHER.

 

I am writing to you and this is me clutching at straws…i was told not to write to you, others said I should follow chain of command, which I did and after a few attempts to seek audience with the relevant people we had our 1st meeting and everyone was happy to see ‘us’..well that’s until we told them why we were really there and no sooner did they hear us, there were promises of immediate action…there was ” call me 1st thing in the morning….” which I did and this was the narrative…in hushed tones I was told..” I am in a meeting I’ll call you later..” this went on for a while until they no longer bothered to pick my calls…”

“Wanjiku hopes her open letter to the president will get to the attention of the commander in chief.”

Machachari actor Almasi responds to haters who judge him

Woiyee… Machachari’s Baha Reveals The Most Horrifying Experience About His Life We Didn’t Know

Life can be tough at times, but only the strong ones survive. Talented Machachari actor Tyler Kamau Mbaya aka Baha is among those who have not had it smooth growing up.

His life has been a bumpy road and the darkest moment was when he lost his mother in May 2013.

Beth Nyambura Mbaya, popularly known by her screen name Wanade, who acted in Mother-in-law died after a long struggle with cancer leaving behind a widower, and two sons; Baha and Mungai Mbaya (commonly known from Junction Juniors).

After Wanade’s death, her family was affected and Baha had to switch from Nairobi School to Chania boy’s in Thika where his brother was so that they could comfort each other and sail through life.

In a recent interview with People Daily, Baha confessed that life became hard for the two. Baha was forced to take up the parental responsibilities at a tender age. The award-winning actor and his brother, who is 2 years older than him, had no option but work hard in the acting industry at least to make a living and take care of their ageing grandmother who he revealed is their guardian.

“When mum passed on, I was a Form One student at Nairobi School. I immediately transferred to Chania Boys High School where my brother was for moral support so that we could grieve and overcome our mum’s death together. However, in my fourth year, I joined Ufanisi Senior School where I sat for my KSCE.”

Despite their mother’s death, Baha did not give up on life and went on to more acting gigs where he has now managed to create a niche for himself in the local acting industry. He is without a doubt the best teen actor in the country.

But surprisingly, Baha’s father was not in Kenya when his wife and sons used to grace the screen. He was away in the US until 2011 when he was deported in his fifties. Baha revealed that their father could not get a job in Kenya and so it was upon him and his elder brother to take care of the family.

But unfortunately, their father died two years later after their mother’s death.

The bright student he is, Baha worked hard in school and managed to score a B+.

“I finished high school aged 16 last year. This is because I demanded to be taken to school when my brother, who is two years older than me, started schooling. I did not want to be let alone. I was able to act and at the same time continue with my education because I was always allowed to have one weekend off to attend the shoots.”

Baha’s fans have been moved by his story as many didn’t know what he hides beneath that broad smile. The 17-year-old has great hopes for the future and he says he wants to pursue journalism and cinematography.

The youngster is besotted with his grandmother and for the first has introduced him to the online community.

“I love this woman very much. Always been there for me. Cheers to our bond Shosh.”
