Singer Sanaipei Tande has denied ever having been in a relationship with Otile Brown.
The two have collaborated in two songs Chaguo la Moyo and Aiyana.
During an interview, Otile said that a romantic relationship was starting to brew between him and Sanaipei, however, his ex came back to the picture and that is why nothing ever happened.
“We have the best chemistry, that is my sister men, but she is a fine lady, ni mrembo sana and all that. But I believe right now ana mtu wake mimi nina mtu wangu,” he said.
“By the way, this was to happen ever since Chaguo la Moyo, if I didn’t link up with my ex there was something kind of happening between me and Sanaipei. It was starting but it didn’t really work because my ex came in, you understand. She is a very special person to me,” he added.
Speaking to Willy M Tuva, Sanaipei said it was pure work and no strings attached.
“The word close is not good to use, we are artistes and if it allows that we have to work together, then we work and that’s it. Those are rumours. It surprises me when two artistes of the opposite sex come together, and people start saying there must be something more. NO. I have done love songs and we have to do it perfectly.”
She added that she appreciates all her fans for the love they have for her revealing that at times she has had to decline some offers.
“You guy, I have been offered a Porsche on social media, and you just decline respectfully and just say thank you but no thanks. There are people who will tell you they will even pay you an appearance fee, I’m like appearance fee for where, for lunch? They are like ‘Please have lunch with me and I’ll give you 1000 dollars,’.”
Singer Sanaipei Tande says she quit drinking in 2019 and that changed her life completely.
Speaking to M Tuva, Sanaipei said it was not easy journey to quit.
“I had decided like for two years and in 2019, I quit and things started working out for me. Appetite came back and I started blossoming. Quitting alcohol was the best decision to ever do,” she said.
Sana added that before then, she was always sleeping during the day and in a bad mood.
“When you drink, you are always not in a good mood and not focused but right now, I am always speaking about positivity. I went into acting and I feel I look good. My life was working at night and fighting handovers during the day.”
The ‘Simama Imara’ hitmaker said after that major decision, she felt like she should have done it like 10 years ago.
“I would try and backslide. It was tough hosting Karaoke while sober. I wanted to rebrand. I think one of the major changes I made and everything changed with that one decision is that in 2019, I made a conscious decision to stop taking alcohol, and so a lot changed with that one decision,” she said.
“I was like, why didn’t I stop like 10 years ago? But you know, everything happens at the time it is supposed to happen. You have those experiences so they can better inform your future.”
Songstress Sanaipei Tande does not agree with Eric Omondi that West African music beats Kenyan music.
Speaking in an interview with NTV, Sanaipei who is currently promoting her EP said she is not easily moved by trends.
“I guess the reason I still do music is since I can write a song that really helps someone. I love when I can come up with a verse that gets deep to someone. I have a family that keeps me grounded.”
She added that she is proud of artistes who make money from their music in the right way.
“Let’s not pretend that it’s not about money since you put in money to get the songs out and we appreciate the money that comes with it. Legit money. I think I continue doing good music as long as there are people who appreciate it and its clean music. I am good to go.”
Responding to Eric’s claim that Tanzanians and West Africans beat Kenyan artistes in their music, Sana asked;
“Who is he comparing to us? There is an issue with the appreciation of Kenyan artistes by Kenyans. I don’t know why but I think the system doesn’t allow artistes to be as big as the West Africans but again it comes down to content.”
“You are comparing us to Tanzanians and West African and half of their content is promoting sex, partying, and alcohol.
I probably would not be the best to talk about it but content-wise, I don’t think they are good. The beats comes in and then the sexual connotation that is there. As much as they are well packaged, what impact do they have on the youths and society?
I don’t feel Eric’s vibe and it doesn’t affect me since I know I am doing good music and I know I’m touching people’s souls. I write about what I feel and that which is helping someone out there.
Kenyans have many beautiful female celebrities in the entertainment industry, politics and even sports,They are a representation of Kenya’s population.
This kills the stereotype that Kenya does not produce gorgeous women.
The attractive women in this list are the ones I believe would provide stunning babies if a man was to have children with them.
For the sake of argument, the list looks at two categories which we can look to distinguish for healthy and attractive children. Their facial symmetry (beauty) and physical properties (big posteriors).
The socialite is rumoured to be seeing Statehouse operative and Mr. moneybags Jomo Gecaga. And why wouldn’t he? She is a pleasure to look at.
Even eligible bachelor Otile Brown was infatuated with this woman! And while I may not like the heavily synthetic Vera of today, she once had the stereotypical body that was curvy and not fat. Yes, a delicate balance that many try and fail at.
This is Corazon’s younger sister and she seems to be following in the same vein as her sister, that of being a socialite. The lady has been blessed with some delicious curves like her sister and she also has the ambition to succeed. Where is her Italian man?
The darker the berry the sweeter the juice is a phrase that best encapsulates the first African woman to win an Oscar. She did so by playing the role of a slave. In the movie, you couldn’t tell that a pretty woman lay underneath all the scars and tears but there was one.
The radio presenter started out as with the musical group called SEMA and has since flourished and branched out onto a somewhat successful solo career.
The socialite who started out on Big Brother is now an established “boss woman” and is still as beautiful to look at as she was when in her early twenties.
Everyone has their opinions but mine are always right!
Fat shaming is a bad vice that should not be entertained but that has not stopped some Kenyans from body shaming celebrities whenever they get a chance.
Bad as it is some of these celebs have chosen to let the trolls know that they cannot put them down.
Radio queen Linda Nyangweso has been a victim of body shaming but that has not dampened her spirit.
It all started when her Kiss Drive co-host Jeff Mote shared a photo of the two in studio and fans could not mince their words on how fat Lynda has grown.
One of the fans going by the name Katrinakaz dropped her comment asking the radio queen to find time for the gym while one Kelly Shan made a comment on how fat she keeps growing each time.
This led to a series of comments from other fans on the same issue which in a way did not go down well with the Kiss Drive host, as some encouraged her to be as she sees okay for herself and not mind what is said.
Lynda Nyangweso who could not hold it down responded to the request of her fans in a sarcastic way, claiming that they had opened her eyes over the same and thanked them for helping her come out of denial.
“@kelly_shan2820 you and @katrinakaz have saved me thank you, I was about to drink my glass of wine, live my best life, mind my own damn business, grow my edges and let my skin glow but you two have shown me the light, or the fat, I hadn’t noticed it. i was in denial. Thank you. #unsungheroes #worldssmallestviolin #fatshamingforabetterworld,” read her response.
Daughter to Keroche industries boss has had her fair share of fat shaming, In December 2018 she shared her progress photos and that set the ground for her trolls.
She posted four pictures and captioned it ‘New month, new beginnings’.
A section of fans commented on Anerlisa’s post suggesting that she had put on some weight. Some went on to fat shame her on the comment section.
Anerlisa reacted by cautioning her critics that she get hurt whenever people call her fat. She further stressed that she would not tolerate any negativity on her Instagram account.
“You should be very careful what you say to others. I do not appreciate when people comment on my picture calling me fat and all sorts of words to do with body size.I am human and i get hurt like everyone else. I am very open with you all on my page but some sort of respect to would be appreciated. #PositiveVibesOnly,” wrote Anerlisa.
The two bigwigs in the Kenyan music industry produced ‘short and sweet’ single that will live long. They recently released their new collaborative song called ‘Tujiangalie‘
2.Wyre and Nazizi
Back in the day when they were still Necessary Noize they rocked with their music and decided later their music is still dope.
Apart from being a band they are a duo that are legendary and they are so united when it comes to making music together. They have singles like Kenyan boy Kenyan girl, Bless my room and So Ruff among others.
Hip hop legend Juacali from Calif Records joined forces with former member of group SEMA and actress Sanaipei Tande to give us good music and romantic ones in that case.
The two are behind the songs ‘Kwaheri’ and ‘Geti kali’
4.Amani and Nameless
The two are legends in Kenyan music and across East Africa. Nameless and Amani did a song together that is called ‘Ninanoki’ in the early 2000’s. The ‘Ninanoki’ song is a timeless song that is still a club banger today.
The legend Nonini discovered the celebrated music group P. Unit and they did ‘si lazima’ song then they later did ‘Hapa Kule’ and ‘Kushoto Kulia’.
The songs are still hits till today. If they could collaborate again together it would be nice for their fans.
Willy Paul and Size 8
Gospel singers Willy Paul and Size 8 did their first collaboration together with the song ‘tam tam’ which was a love gospel song encouraging people to be in love, how to build a long lasting relationship and how to choose the right partner for marriage.
They did another song together called ‘Sijafika’ which they included gospel artist Gloria Muliro and Kambua.
Otile Brown has come out to strongly deny rumors that he and fellow musician, Sanaipei Tande have an intimate relationship.
This comes barely weeks after photos of Otile and Sana dressed in wedding attires and kissing surfaced on social media. With fans waiting in bated breaths on the official announcement of the celebrities’ wedding, they were surprised to learn that it was just a video shoot for their new song, ‘Chaguo la moyo’.
However, even after the revelation, their fans still haven’t come to terms that the two talented artists did not actually get married with some even calling and sending Otile messages regarding the ‘wedding’ rumours.
Otile took to his instagram to clarify that the two are just friends adding that there’s nothing between them claiming, ‘we just play too much’.
Read his post below.
I still receive inboxes & calls concerning the wedding rumours, because some people fell for it.
I would like to let some of you know that@sanaipeitande and I are just friends. We didn’t get married, that was just a wedding set up for our Song#chaguolamoyo. There’s nothing between us, we just play too much. Wikendi njema
Singer Sanaipei Tande has defended her decision to get married in a secret ceremony after photos leaked online.
Pundits claim the photos are from a set of the music video for her collaboration with Otile Brown.
Is it a music video?
“HAHA. THAT IS ALL I CAN SAY. THE REASON WHY IT IS NOT BEING TALKED ABOUT IS, IT IS A PRIVATE AFFAIR.”
Adding, “When you’re getting married, you don’t tell the whole world. Ni kitu ya chini ya maji, haiongelewi. Pregnancy ni siri. Ndoa pia ni siri. Ni mambo ya kurealise it’s an intimate thing, for close family. I’ve always been private on that sector of my life. These things are not shared.”
Asked what people will think about her getting hitched to a man younger than her, Sanaipei, without missing a beat, said, “It is none of their business. People do what they want to do. Me, I’m not in anyone’s business, that is why it was a private affair.”
When called for comment, Sanaipei’s hubby, Otile Brown, insisted he is now a happily married man.
“Thank you for congratulating me. Cha muhimu ndani ya maisha yangu ni kwamba, yule mtu muhimu ni anayehusika, yupo na yametokea. (The important thing in my life right now is that the one I treasure is involved and the wedding ceremony took place.) I ain’t doing it for nobody. Nampenda [Sanaipei] kwa sababu yuko tofauti, she’s real.”
So how did he propose to Sana? “I don’t wanna talk about it. I like her; I just don’t want to go into details. Sitaki iende public.”
So, how was the engagement? “I don’t wanna talk about it. I like her, I just don’t want to go into details. Sitaki iende public.”
Sanaipei and Otile plan on many many tots, soon. “Hata mia ni sawa tu,” Otile revealed.
Otile’s response to having heartbroken his RnB loving female fans, the singer said, “Nimem-heart break nani sasa? Haya ni maisha yangu, mashabiki wangu wa muziki watakuwepo tu lakini wale walikua kwa nia zingine tofauti ambazo si za msingi nawaambia pole. ”
The funny twists about birthdays is that they were major, huge celebrations when we were kids and we couldn’t wait to celebrate them with other kids but as we grow older we prefer having small parties with friends and family or even stay home and watch a movie and sleep.
Wahu Kagwi and Sanaipei both turn a year old and they both look stunning for their age.
Wahu went on social media and wished herself a happy birthday in a hilarious way.
“So i finally decided to go from 18 to 21 years of age!!! I’m grateful to God for the faithfulness mercy and kindness that He has bestowed upon me all these years. Happy 21st birthday to me.”
She also went on and appreciated fellow celebrities like Akothee who wished her a happy birthday.
“My darling you’re simply the best! Thank you!”
Her hubby Nameless also did not forget his wife’s special day as he posted on social media,
#My Queen May God continue guiding your life steps! You are blessed! And I am blessed to have you in My life… HAPPY BIRTHDAY Babe!
Sanaipei Tande also took to social media to wish herself a happy birthday and she didn’t forget to wish her long time friend and birthday mate too. Talk of self love.
“I thank my God for my 33 years today! He has & will always be my ROCK! Now, no more tequila please!!!!! 😂😂😂 I’m so finished!! Ooohhh and Happy Birthday too Aunty!! @wahukagwi❤❤.”
A member of the pop star trio Sema is currently in rehab for alcoholism.
Sema comprised of musicians Pam Waithaka, Sanaipei Tande and Kevin Waweru. They rocked the charts with their hits like Leo, Sakalakata and Leta Wimbo.
The group dispersed and they each sought out their fortunes as solo artistes. Sanaipei had her stint in radio before she quit to focus on her career. Kevin went back to school and little is known about what he is up to.
Pam is currently in rehab at The Serenity Place Rehabilitation Centre, situated in the up-market estate of Kahawa Sukari near Kenyatta University and the Kahawa Barracks.
“Pam is admitted in rehab following prolonged alcoholism,” a source told The Star’s Word Is. “She is admitted in the rehab for the second time following several relapses.”
She was spotted at the rehab on Saturday during visiting hours, which take place from 9am to noon. She was the vocal talent of the Sema group and voted the most likely to succeed.
The rehab is a posh place that allows you to keep in touch with your family as you recover.
Beside Pam, celebrities who have been to rehab and come out to build careers for themselves include Bamzigi, Ray C, Jimwatt and Ugandan diva Jacque Chandiru.
Here are photos of Pam from back when she was in the music industry.
