Poll results: Should entertainers like Prezzo join politics?

The recent news that McDonald Mariga and Prezzo were interested in joining politics divided a lot of Kenyans. Some felt that there should be a clear delineation between politics and entertainment.

This led me to set up a poll to find out just what the Kenyan people think? (uh…Classic105 audience). The results were overwhelmingly against the notion with most Kenyans saying that the entertainers should stay away from politics.

‘I believe in love because I love myself,’ Prezzo says about marriage

Prezzo is one of the most accomplished of musicians that we have in Kenya. Over the years, his antics mainly with his women have caught the attention of many.

His biggest complaint about the women he has dated is that they try to change him.

‘I love my mother, the problem is when I meet someone, they tend to act like they know me better and they know my whole life but as time goes by because I have so many fans out there, so after sometimes they want to change you and control how you handle your fans.’

He added;

Being a playboy came with the territory. It’s not a bad thing. As with the presidency out there, no woman wants to be number two, they wanna be with the main guy.

Would he get married again? ‘One thing I have come to learn about this world, never says never. You never know what the future holds for you and you end up finding that one person who wins your love. I believe in love because I love myself,’ the rapper said.

Prezzo also felt like he is a catch and said as much explaining, ‘If someone was to stick with me, am actually a nice guy especially to women and will do anything for a woman, but once I start sensing like there is insecurity, it pushes me away, the only person who could have done that was my mother but she just let me be.’

The entertainer also revealed that he always gets blamed for the end of his relationships, ‘If you look at my love life when things go bad, people(the woman he is dating) start looking for sympathy saying,

“ooh he used to drink so much, he used to do this and this”. If that was the case then it(the relationship) wouldn’t have lasted even that long of a period,’ he ponders.

He, however, confessed that he always does post-mortems of his relationship and so far he believes he hasn’t caused the demise of any of his relationships,

‘Many a time, am in a relationship, and it fails, I go back to my thoughts and ask myself if I am the one who was wrong, and so far I am not. I stand to be corrected.’

Prezzo reveals impact his daughter has had on his behaviour (exclusive)

Prezzo is one of the most eloquent, soft-spoken of rappers that you will ever meet. Yes, even a genre that is known for its brash and lewd disposition has its gentlemen.

El Presidente as he likes to call himself is one of them. I recently spoke to Jackson Ngechu Makini and he revealed some interesting things about his growth and his evolution as a man.

One of the most important areas in his life is his relationship with his daughter, 10-year-old Zahrie whom he had with ex-wife Daisy Kiplagat.

The singer said that his daughter was fine and that he still has a close relationship with her. The reason we don’t see a lot more of her anymore is that he made a conscious decision to keep her away from social media.

One of the most important things that Jackson has taught his daughter is how she should carry herself.

‘My daughter is to have respect and be outspoken like when she doesn’t like something, she should make sure she gets a respectful way of objecting,’ he said.

He also added that he encouraged her to be outspoken to help build her confidence later on in life.

He concluded by revealing the impact been a father had on his character, saying,

‘Prezzo was at time reckless but nowadays, I lay low because of my daughter. I am even cutting out drinking alcohol. I take a glass of wine maybe during dinner and am good. Patience has also improved and the way you put yourself out there.’

The past 2 years, Prezzo has been careful to keep his name out of the public spotlight for anything other than his music. The Prezzo of negative headlines is gone and has been replaced by someone who is careful about the image that he curates.

The man who calls himself El Presidente spoke to me in an exclusive and wide-ranging interview.

The rapper revealed that 2019 had been a good year for him and that he had been pushing upwards. He also said that he would be releasing new music this month.

He said that the music he was doing now had to reflect his growth and age unlike what he was doing back in the days.

‘As one of the older generation, what you utter from your mouth really counts so before Prezzo was reckless but right now the society will look at you differently.’ the rapper said.

The singer has said that the legacy he wants to leave was the impact he had in every facet of his life. He said,

I have to leave a mark behind that Prezzo was that guy. My milestones have so much to speak about. The whole industry and Big Brother that I left a mark there. There is also a project in Kibera (where he is building homes for the less fortunate). There is nothing you can do bigger like giving someone shelter.

I asked the rapper whether his projects in Kibera reflected any political ambitions he might harbour? He answered coyly saying,

I am just playing my role. Be mindful that all the projects I am doing are without CDF money. This is my own money. Now imagine if there was CDF money, what kind of place it would be? 

Ponder that…

‘Bi****s Should Keep Off My Man’ – Noti Flow Warns Ladies Thirsting Over Her Man

Noti Flow and Prezzo have been rumoured to be in a relationship for a while now, and the rumours kept swirling after they released a song together called Tupendane.

Well, from the look of things, it’s not a rumour no more as Noti recently shared a screenshot of their conversation when Prezzo went to Tanzania for business.

prezzo and noti flow

But that’s not what many think as it is claimed that he went to Tanzania to meet up with Amber Lulu, who has been rumoured to be eyeing Prezzo.

Noti Flow is not having all that talk, as she has come blazing hot to shut down the rumours.

Speaking to Pulse, she made it clear that Prezzo went to Tanzania to record collabos while shouting that women should keep off her man.

prezzo and amber lulu

You are talking about that bi*** calling herself Amber Rose. Who even calls herself Amber Rose when we all know that there can only be one Amber Rose. The truth is that Prezzo was not in Tanzania to see her but to record collabos with the likes of Fid Q and other hip hop guys. Besides, I know b****s keep on chasing him the way nig*** chase me and so I wouldn’t be shocked if she hits back and claims he was with her. Thing is, girls…bi****s should keep off my man as they know where his heart is,” she told Pulse.

When asked what makes her so sure that his heart is with her she said, “Because we have been together for a while and I understand how he thinks.”

She further explained that she is not declaring Prezzo as hers because all men are players and a man has to live his life.

noti flow

It is not like am trying to declare a territory because, hey, a man has to live his life. All nig**s are players and so I take a day at a time. I have been approaching this thing with precaution as sometimes what I hear is different from what he says. I told you (Pulse) some days ago that I am not looking for a mama’s boy but a king,” she stated.

Noti Flow was in a relationship with Colonel Mustafa, but later on called it quits after revealing that Mustafa was being kept by a sugar mummy and she found it gross for him to sleep with the mama and then sleep with her.

 

Broke? Me? Nah Brah! Prezzo Rubbishes Claims That He Has Financial Problems

Kenyan rapper Prezzo is said to be broke after he failed to afford the studio fees of top recording studios in Tanzania. According to The Reverend’s column on the Star Newspaper, the rapper was even offered a 75% discount but it was too high for his pocket.

It is said that he walked from studio to studio looking for a cheaper offer.

A source whispered to the Reverend that he gave out all his accessories to be allowed to record at a Tanzanian based record label

“Braza, huyo msanii alitupea hizo bling bling zaka kwa sababu hakua na hela. Jameni, hatuwezi msaidia. Tulidhani yeye ni big deal huko Kenya, salala kumbe hana chochote!”

Prezzo Caught With Tanzanian Socialite After Nasty Split With Yola

Prezzo spoke to Kiss Fm website exclusively on the said matter. He rubbished the allegations and added that he instead bought more jewellery while over there.

“Thats not true. I can even give you my video director’s number. They can confirm that I went there and bought even more jewellery. I came back with more and not less jewellery. I had my own stylist and I had everything intact. As a matter of fact with three people, we flew there, we didn’t even drive.”

The My City My Town hitmaker further says he is not using drugs and for him to fly out his crew to Tanzania means he is financially fit.

“All these allegations gives people a rush when they point fingers at me. They will say Prezzo does drugs but then I’ve never been to rehab even ones in my lifetime. All these allegations are formulated out of  jealousy. For me to travel with my crew already goes to show we are financially fit. If  I wouldn’t be, then I wouldn’t be able to accommodate two other people with me.”

He went ahead to say he will not reveal the price of the jewellery he bought while in Tanzania because that is like an investment for him

“I cease to reveal such information. My jewellery speaks for itself. Ever since 2003 I’ve been wearing jewelery, I love them and its been like an investment.”

 

Prezzo Opens Up About His Life And The Lessons He’s Learned Along The Way

Despite him being a bully and killing us with his swag, Prezzo was born at Pumwani Hospital and raised in Eastleigh, Muyuyu section one until he turned ten.

Prezzo

During an interview on Talk Central, the king of blings remembered the life of being brought up in Eastleigh because it taught him the street life and its the kind of place even at ten or eleven at night is as good as day time and guys are up and about.

Prezzo

Being brought up by a single mother, Prezzo describes his mother as the love of his life because she has  been there for him ever since his father passed away and this is what caused the close bond between mother and son.

Prezzo

Whatever he needed, his mother would do everything to make sure he has it to avoid him going on a hunger strike. He later realized how his mother was struggling to make sure he attends school and to make sure she gives him what he wanted. His father passed after being with and his mother had a debt to pay at Nairobi Hospital.

Prezzo

In the beginning of his career in music, his mother was so affected with all the negativity about her son and he decided to sit down with his mother and explain to her that he is a public figure and such things are bound to happen and she should try and adopt to them.

Prezzo

He further said, “I have no regrets for some of the things I have seen written about me reason being whatever it is that you go through being good or bad is for a reason. I don’t believe in coincidence. There is no such thing in this world like coincidence. Its God’s grace.”

Prezzo added that his past women became famous when they were with him and he still talks to some of them. “I talk to Huddah because she is cool and we go way back. I know she go my back. Vera once in a while. The rest of them, No.”

Speaking about his marriage to Daisy Kiplagat, he said, “Marriage life was good and the best part of it is that I got a beautiful baby girl out of it. Daisy loved Jackson Ngechu Makini and she hated Prezzo. I spent so much time into building Prezzo brand and I could not drop it. I have never used drugs in my life.”

 

Prezzo Addresses Michelle Yola’s Statement That He’s Threatening Her

Prezzo and Michelle have been making news this week after Yola took to social media to blast Prezzo for threatening her and telling him off.

She said in part, “Jackson Ngechu, listen very carefully. Don’t let that smile fool you because I have phone recordings and messages to prove every single word you said to me! I have been quiet for so long and if I start to talk, Lord knows! I hate it that I’m even addressing you but enough is enough!”

Well Prezzo has come out to address the issue, stating that he wants to set the record straight and distance himself from this whole issue.

He said, “The common saying “it’s never too late” is a misleading one for many since there are times when it is in fact too late. Sometimes, it is too late to change who you are, too late to do the right thing in telling the truth. I have decided to address this issue about me “allegedly” posing a threat to Michelle’s safety for the sake of clarity and because I want to distance myself from whatever games or plans she has.‎”

Prezzo Makini
‎He continued, “It is quite a sad thing to see an individual tell lies to have power over the masses so that she can control circumstances and dictate events. To brainwash the masses with your selfish agenda by feeding them lies and harnessing the outcome for yourself is a mean thing to do. ‎Misinforming the masses to believe in ur mythical notions that are conveniently and selfishly crafted in your own imagination might give you temporary comfort…. but genuine permanent inner peace and happiness ONLY stems from knowing that the truth is factual, pure and uncompromised. Instead of going to vote so we can bring change in this beautiful nation, someone is out there talking gibberish SMH.”

Prezzo and Michelle Yola have been trending of late after Yola took to social media to tell Prezzo to stop calling and contacting her because she’s over him and she’s moved on.

She has since been flaunting her new bae, a German national, on social media.

A while back Prezzo and Yola got tattoos of each other’s name as a sign of love, and just like lovers do they flaunted it all over social media. But after their breakup, Michelle went ahead and covered up Prezzo’s tattoo.

Prezzo on the other was not about that life. When asked if he’ll get rid of Yola’s tattoo he said, “The tattoo stays because you have to understand that when I was getting this tattoo she was a very big part of my life.We dated for like two and a half years and the problems that I came across she was the only one there for me. Me saying I’m gonna remove the tattoo because she has another man is petty and immature.”

Well it seems Prezzo isn’t living up to his words as he has since shared a photo on social media of new ink. He went ahead and covered Yola’s tattoo with art of Nairobi city. He didn’t say much about it other than, “My City My Town, The Heart Of The City Going Everywhere With Me.”
