He does not need you to bash him when he comes home in the evening… Children…Your dad May not be able to provide for everything you want.
It kills him deep that he cannot but you that play station that other kids have. If he could he would.
Your dad May have denied himself so much while he was raising you and now that he is old and tired and maybe sickly. He does not want you to pay him back.
All he wants is an “ I LOVE AND APPRECIATE YOU DAD” message and you to succeed in life. That’s his joy.
SISTERS..Appreciate your brothers. They fight battles out there that you may never know but if they have your backing and love they can conquer any battle out there. FELLOW MEN….tell the devil if you touch one of us you have touched all of us. We are not leaving any man behind even if he is bleeding we are coming for him. The truth is that we are not always as strong as we look or want you to believe. We are all trying to FINISH STRONG. Today CELEBRATE the men in your life. #NoBashingMenToday

I returned home empty handed and you know the excitement that comes with a family expecting their first child,.
The preparations from family members and after all you find yourself off the theatre in the morning wishing it was all just a nightmare and the sounds of other children crying was simply unbearable.” added an emotional Massawe.
Gospel artiste and wife to Nameless is a mother to a teenage daughter Tumiso Mathenge who turned 12 in 2018.
She celebrated her daughters birthday with this beautiful message
“I give God all the glory for this my baby girl who gave me the title of “Mama”, 12 years ago today. cannot believe how time has flown!!! Practically my height now and turning into a fine young lass.
Happy happy birthday my Sweet Love.. may God continue to bless you, be a light unto your path, and may favor always follow you, in your going and coming.

Five years ago, Pastor Burale changed his ways and was ready to settle down. He met his ex-wife Rozinah Mwakideu at a gospel concert in 2012.
“She has the voice of an angel. We courted for five months and then got married in the same year. Everybody said we were rushing it but we were in love, in hindsight, we should have listened. We dated, courted, paid dowry and got married all within five months. Her parents were okay,” he explained.
However, the two were never meant to be. “My marriage lasted for a year and two days. When a marriage is broken, everyone must have played their part in making it fail because no one is perfect,” he said
Earlier on, in an interview, Rozinah said the marriage with the pastor failed because he was deep in debt and lied about it.
“I would receive calls now and then from people and police saying Robert had unsettled debts
I kept waiting hoping he would change. The main reason I left was after my friend came to visit me and after she left she wanted to sue him for defaulting on a debt. I couldn’t handle that pressure plus other personal issues,” she said
The stylish pastor did not address the above allegations, but chose to instead comment on his claims that he has been celibate ever since the marriage broke down, five years ago.
“By the Grace of God, I have managed to abstain. Only a fool sits on fire and expects not their bum to get burned. You avoid situations that will take you that way. People and even pastors out there said that I was lying. I hide under God because I am not an old man and I don’t look bad,” he said.
He, however, admitted that he gets hit on by but he has to honour himself on how to react on the advances.
Single dads and widowers bringing up their children single handedly rarely get recognition.
These men have been thrown into the single father and widow department not by choice but by circumstances but instead of them crying wolf about it they are using the lemons life threw at them to make lemonade.
1. Tedd Josiah
When Reginah Katar breathed her last music producer Tedd Josiah had not imagined what life would be without her. With a daughter looking up to him for love and guidance, Tedd has had to take up the role of being a dad and a mum to his beautiful daughter Jay.
Tedd Josiah who is a music producer is a true definition of a real gentleman. He has proved that when men put their mind into something they can actually do it.
2. Robert Burale
The stylish pastor Robert Burale is a single dad and he is not ashamed of that fact. He has his daughter to share all the love and affection.
Burale, who got divorced from his wife 6 years ago, is a role model as to what fathers should be in an age where dead beat dads are the order of the day.
Even though Burale did not lose his wife, he is still doing a good job and it is worth commending.
When the late Janet Kanini Ikua lost her life after a brave battle with cancer, the world came tumbling down for her hubby George Ikua and since then he has hard to adjust by bringing up his kids on his own.
He is a brave man who is still mourning his departed wife but still taking care of his kids as a single man only with the help of relatives and close friends.
4. Dan Sonko
Dan lost his wife after she developed complications after delivery, leaving behind a son who never got to know his mum. Dan Sonko, who is based in Mombasa, has taken charge of bringing up his two sons and he is doing so well.
His young son is now all grown up and their late mum Dru Sonko would be so proud to see how much of a good job her husband has done.
Pastor Robert Burale is a public figure but not much is known about his ex wife Rozinah Mwakideu, who recently came out to talk about their failed marriage.
In an earlier post, he has posted some tips on how to sustain a marriage, reminiscing on how far they would have been if they had not parted.
“So today I would have been celebrating six years in marriage. Well allow me to give you some tips. For your marriage to stand
1) STOP involving too many friends in your issues ..Most pretend to care but the truth is that they want your marriage to crumble
2) If you have a disagreement..keep in mind you are fighting from the same side. Keep the real enemy away.
3) Your spouse should be your best friend.
4) Never gossip your spouse. It makes you look back.
5)MEN ..please know your wife has 7 senses or maybe 10. Hear them and you will be safe
6)Don’t over splash your displays of affection on social media. Don’t overdo it. Trust me Monitoring spirits are on the prowl. Infact I believe some of the most successful relationships (genuinely ) are not splashed all over social media. marriage is a good thing. Keep it SACRED Kwa Hayo machache. I look forward to marriage. Ama namna gani my friends.”
In Kenya, not many Dads show off their children or family on social media. Some even prefer to keep that part of their life private.
However, these are some of the Kenyan celebrity fathers who don’t mind showing off their family and giving advice to their followers and with the look of things, fatherhood is going quite well with them.
Some of them include,
1. Timothy Kimani aka blessed Njugush and baby Tugi

“New Age Parenthood
Be very vigilant. Many new age parents will allow their children to go for sleep overs so that they can have “peace”. Well I got news for you. SOME of this sleep overs is where children engage in sex and other vices. Some are even sexually abused by people known to them. BE VERY VIGILANT. Some of The so called “leavers party” are sponsored by the devil himself.
Please stop burdening your parents in the village by taking your children there unless it’s absolutely necessary. They are yours. When you were making the babies and having fun while at it they were not there..Did you think you were pouring pulpy orange juice?
With those few remarks GIVE ME OLD SCHOOL PARENTING STYLE
Stylish Pastor Robert Burale is not shy when it comes to flaunting his adorable daughter, after all a daughter is the best gift a dad can ever ask for.
His daughter recently cleared her Primary School and from the look of things Burale is a proud dad,given the fact that he is a single dad who has managed to raise his daughter in a God fearing environment.
Unlike many single dads Burale is not bitter and even took the chance to thank his ex wife for helping bring up their daughter and instill discipline in her in the post below.
“And just like that my little girl is done with primary school. God is Good. From class one to class 8 she has never MISSED class. Only GOD. I would also like to thank PARKLANDS BAPTIST School for great work and guidance. Last but not least is to thank Lexie s mother ,Joan who has done a great great job also. A great mother you are. May God increase and bless you..You have played a MAJOR role in instilling values on Lexie. Ubarikiwe ….sasa now for some Ice cream and prepare for High School. Wuehhh. TIME FLIES”

Celebrities live their life in the limelight but most of them keep their children away just to protect them from constant public scrutiny which may harm them at times.

Infact I believe some of the most successful relationships (genuinely ) are not splashed all over social media. marriage is a good thing. Keep it SACRED Kwa Hayo machache. I look forward to marriage. Ama namna gani my friends.”
1: Try and put some more effort In shooting your videos ..Avoid cheap graphics that look like a kindergarten “video thesis”..People appreciate where effort is EVIDENT…(Of course not all Artists fall here ..Some are very very good and we know them )
2: LYRICS …you don’t have to use words like “pupu” in your songs to sell…You can do love songs without necessarily using demeaning words like “Mahaga zimeiva kama ndondo” .. And you wonder why majority prefer love songs by Tanzanian, Nigerian artists and few Kenyan acts like Sauti Sol…
3: Gospel Artists/Ministers….If your song excites the flesh more than the spirit …please regroup..
4: We don’t need to hear your name 75 times before we hear the name of Jesus …Bible says IF I BE LIFTED UP …
5. Lastly to the so called VIDEO VIXENS ..did someone tell you that to qualify to appear in a music video you must be almost NAKED…if you want to be NAKED go the the SAUNA
Kenyans reacted to the post. Here are is their take on the situation.
Maina Robert: Of late I’ve noted Kenyan content is getting more airplay unlike a couple of years ago when Nigerian music ruled our radios. The problem though is differentiating the gospel and secular.
Chepkoech Ann: Ukweli kapsaa. Sema yote…most Kenyan music bores me to the core. It is a high time these artists considered the content and the importance of developing content that cuts across. That is if they want us to listen to their music, watch their videos many times over and for a long time.
Esther Kariithi: This is nothing but pure truth,we go international coz our local artists have failed us kabisa, content hawana…
Deno Wajo: We are lacking content in gospel songs,secular songs nowadays nakedness carries the order of the day, Kenyan musicians should not complain when we support international artists.
Ng’endo Irene: God help our music industry… otherwise we r dancing our way to Lucifer
We forget the devil never sleeps and he will try all ways to make this industry looks so cheap n the word will not reach to the right person… esp our young generation (children ) they are addicted to tv n radio what kind of generation are we raising.
Burale’s letter comes a few weeks after radio presenter Jalang’o blasted gospel artistes for singing songs without content and no particular message.
While speaking to Word Is by The Star ,gospel artiste Size8 reborn has come out to defend other gospel artistes saying “Jalang’o should not judge people with a few songs because ours is the biggest music industry ,and i believe every song has a message
She adds”Everyone sings differently thus it would be wrong to judge them with their content.”
