DJ Mo took to social media to apologise to his wife saying;
“My wife @size8reborn Nothing will change till I die , the mother of my children and the foundation of my family ❤️…There’s so much I can say. I will not run or hide …

I am blessed to call you MY QUEEN no matter how big the distraction seems. Together forever babe, LET the world know you my one and only …YOU COMPLETE ME ❤️….”
The two have taken a mini vacay and from the social media photos and posts, they are doing well and celebrating the goodness of the Lord.
TV personality Joyce Maina has denied allegations that she is a homewrecker after news hit the interwebs that DJ Mo and Size 8’s marriage is headed for splitsville.
Singer Size 8 and husband DJ Mo have apparently been facing some marital issues for years now but the two have kept mum about the issue wherever it comes out.
Well, this time round, rumor has it that there is trouble in paradise again.
This is after Size 8 unfollowed her husband on Instagram.
DJ has been linked to one Joyce Maina who shared a selfie on social media just recently.
An exposè done by blogger Edgar Obare suggested that the two lovers have been secretly seeing each other.
Well, Joyce Maina has come out to deny dating DJ Mo.
“Fake news is actually hilarious, Weh so guys went from not knowing what the man looks like(you just have a blurry photo that make him look like a shadow) and now all over sudden its DJ Mo. Lol.You guys have gotten A+in composition writing juu hi story mmejiandikia.”
She added that she is not dumb to date a married man.
Terming the delivery a miracle, Size 8 in an emotional video posted on their YouTube channel narrated that she suffered serious complications that nearly cost her life and that of the baby as she clocked her last trimester.
Today her post read;
“Today I woke up feeling so low in my heart over thinking and asking myself questions but when I looked at my son @muraya.jnr everything just lifted I felt the love of Christ and the mercies and grace of God my son a great miracle!!!”
She went on to ask God to help her not forget all the good things He has done for her.
“You have shown me overwhelming goodness and grace!!! Your love beyond my imagination!!!
The enemy the devil uses small little things that are not going well in our lives to make us think we are not blessed refuse his negative talk and energy!! May the holy spirit right now remind you just how great God is to you,” she wrote.
Some Kenyans celebrities have always hiddwn their family members from the public eye.
Well, while most do so, there is always a season that comes and they open them to the public.
Example is during birthday parties or when they have weddings.
Many have, however, kept their family connections a little quieter and even though they have come out time and again to acknowledge each other, not so many people know that these Kenyan celebrities have siblings.
Check out some of the celebrities with their siblings.
Njugush has a younger brother, his only sibling. He introduced him to the public during his birthday last month.
Ngugi Ndegwa is his name, a poet and script writer. Well, the two bear such a striking resemblance that one would be mistaken to think they are twins.
Size 8 is still celebrating seven years in salvation.
She has released an album called Neema Tu and she had different artistes with songwriting skills to pen some of her songs.
Well, the first song Yahweh released this week has recieved so much love from her fans.
Written by Sauti Sol’s Bien, Size 8 says she enjoyed working with Bien and Bensoul.
Speaking to Classic 105, the mother of two says the song Yahweh is so close to her heart.
“I cry everytime I listen to that song. I met up with Bien and explained to him that I wanted a song to celebrate the seven years in salvation. We jumped into it and Bien did it so well yaani,” she said.
She went on to say that Bien has so much soul.
“I feel that one day, he will get to sing for God because he doesn’t just sing, but he sings his soul out and with a lot of heart. Those are the best people to sing for God because they sing from the heart. That is why their songs get to many people because they don’t sing for numbers,” she said. He did it with Bensoul and they are just blessed.”
From a documentary she did last month, Size 8 explained that she has been good friends with Bien since high school days and was among the first people she called when she quit secular music.
Bien explained saying that Size 8’s decision to walk away while her career in the secular world had just picked was a huge disappointment.
He revealed that the mother of two got saved in the middle of a tour and he has never seen anyone walk away from money the way she did.
“Nilikuwa disappointed hio time, because sijawahi ona mtu akiwalk away from pesa hivyo. Yaani ni kama alichukua milioni kama 50 akaweka kwa choo na akaflush… huyu dem aliokoka in the middle of a tour,” (I was disappointed at that particular moment. I have never seen anyone walk away from such amount of money. It was like taking Sh50 million and flushing it down the toilet. She got saved in the middle of a tour) said Bien.
Gospel singer Size 8 has documented her life story from when she joined the music industry to date.
She started as a secular artiste until 2013 when she jumped into gospel music. She is doing well in the industry.
Speaking to Classic 105, the mother of two says she is celebrating the goodness of the Lord as no one believed she would last a day when she announced she was leaving secular.
It’s been seven years of her journey into the gospel industry.
In her new documentary about her life, she speaks about how she made money but got into depression.
She also talks about meeting the love of her life DJ Mo and many other things she has had to face in her career.
“Life has been a very interesting one, hardship, fame, challenges sickness, depression, marriage, children, joy sorrow, highs and lows and on top of it all finding salvation!!! I invite you to watch this documented journey as I celebrate 7 years of salvation by Gods grace on @ntvkenya Monday at 10 pm….. God thank you this is for you!!!” she wrote.
“Wow God you have been super amazing!!! Celebrating your glory your power your faithfulness grace love and mercy in my life!!! Am now 7 years in salvation wow look at Jesus!!!!!”

2. Creme de la Creme
In September 2018, DJ Creme and his wife Denise lost their unborn child while she was six months pregnant.
The couple were expecting their third child before losing her to the cruel hand of death.
“So The last 3 Weeks have been Hard for my Family and I . Pain & Tears perfectly tucked behind the smiles and fake laughters. I was out of the country when my pregnant Wife Denise called and told me that she’s headed to the hospital and it was an emergency. I won’t lie my heart sunk because I somewhat knew what that meant !
I remember kneeling down and Crying to God to keep Her safely wrapped in His Warm Embrace. The worst news came in that the doctor couldn’t feel the baby’s Heart beat . We’d lost the baby, at 6 Months😢 So Close…So So Close I Won’t Lie, It tore me to pieces because I couldn’t forgive myself for being miles away and yet my wife was going through this alone.”
3. Nick Odhiambo
Nick Odhiambo and his girlfriend Janet lost their unborn son in January 2019.
Taking to instagram to share the sad news, he wrote
“The countdown to your birthday cut short…. Sometimes life just throws you a curve ball !!!..but it is what it is..lil’ J’lani R.I.P.. My son didn’t make it to see this beautiful world .”
4. Mitchelle Obama
In her book Becoming former America’s first black first lady Michelle Obama talks about politics, then goes digging deep into some personal issues.
From a miscarriage to using in-vitro fertilization to conceive her daughters to marriage counselling.
In a past interview with ABC News Obama said he did not know how common miscarriages were until his wife suffered the same.
“I felt lost and alone, and I felt like I failed because I didn’t know how common miscarriages were because we don’t talk about them,”
We sit in our own pain, thinking that somehow we’re broken.”
In the book Michele writes that fertility treatments allowed her to conceive daughters Malia, now 20, and Sasha, 17.
“It turns out that even two committed go-getters with a deep love and robust work ethic can’t will themselves into being pregnant,”
We had to do IVF,” she told ABC, in excerpts of an interview that will air in full on Sunday.
She revisits the thrill of her romance with Barack, which began when she was his advisor at a Chicago law firm, describing it as a “toppling blast of lust, gratitude, fulfilment, wonder.”
But she admits the couple on occasions turned to counseling, where they “learned how to talk out” problems
It is hard losing a child. No parent is ever prepared for this and when death knocks most parents mourn for years while some never over come the loss.
Dr Burton Grebin once said
“The death of a child is the most single most traumatic event in medicine.To lose a child is to lose a piece of yourself “.
Some Kenyan celebrities have experienced this loss first hand and some don’t publicly express it, it doesn’t mean they aren’t hurting. So the next time you meet them on the street be kind because kindness does not hurt.

The venacular artiste famously known for hits such as ‘Agiginya’ was a mother to twins (boy and girl) before losing one of them after he developed a chest infection that saw him admitted to Nairobi Women’s Hospital, where he sadly lost the battle.
In an earlier interview with Jeff on Inooro Fm, Shiru wa GP opened up about losing her son and she said:
“It was a bad experience because I didn’t expect it. It’s one of those situations when you have tried so hard then you finally have something good and then the devil snatches it from your hands. I had tried conceiving for 9 years, heading to 10 when God blessed me with twins. I was very excited even though they did not make it to term as they were born 2 months premature. At that point, I didn’t even ask people to pray with me as I knew God had already blessed me in a big way. It (the loss of my baby and my admission) was not only challenging emotionally but also financially as the bill had accumulated up to Shs4.5 million so I had to reach out for financial aid which wasn’t easy.”
God has been gracious to her as she still has her daughter.
Nigeria artiste Dbanj is among other celebrities who have lost their kids. Early this year his son drowned in a swimming pool at the residence leaving the young parents heartbroken.
Dbanj termed the period of losing his son as a hard one but he remained thankful to God for seeing him through.
‘The past few weeks have been incredibly trying and difficult, but God’s love has kept me and my family going. I can’t thank my team enough and the incredible love from you all. May God keep us all. #StrongerTogether’…🙏🙏🙏”

“The emptiness you are left with after you lose a child … “We may look as if we carry on with our lives as before. We may even have times of joy and happiness. Everything may seem normal. But this, EMPTINESS is how we all feel, all the time” ~ John Maddox, for Bereaved Parents Month “
Mukami is a happy mother though after his remaining son recently celebrated his 1st birthday.

“MY HOUSE HELP WAS FEEDING THE CHILD, HE GOT CHOKED, RUSHED TO THE HOSPITAL, THE DOCTORS MANAGED TO RESUSCITATE HIM, BUT LATER COULD NOT STAND THE AMOUNT OF ADRENALINE INJECTED IN HIS BODY, THE BOY LEFT US.
I YEARNED TO SLEEP AT NIGHT BECAUSE IN MY SLEEP HE WOULD COME IN MY DREAMS, I WAS HOLDING HIM AGAIN. IT WAS A TRAUMATIZING TIME AND I ACTUALLY SAID TO MY HUSBAND WE ARE NEVER GOING TO HAVE ANOTHER CHILD AGAIN I CAN’T GO THROUGH THIS AGAIN.
WHEN WE LOST OUR BELOVED THIRD BORN WE WERE DEVASTATED. DESTROYED. TOTALLY BROKEN. BUT WE DID NOT LET GO OF OUR LOVE FOR GOD. IN SPITE OF OUR DEVASTATION AND GRIEF WE KEPT OUR FAITH. ONE YEAR LATER THE LORD GOD BLESSED US WITH A CHILD, AND WE NAMED HIM WANGAI, BECAUSE WE KNEW HE WAS A GIFT, WE HAD LEARNT THAT ULTIMATELY ALL CHILDREN BELONG TO GOD.”
Size 8 recently lost her unborn child after suffering a miscarriage,speaking about it she says
“Rumours were in many blogs that I was pregnant but I never did really confirm it because it was a battle all the way, so I just wanted to go with the fight privately. But God decided the best lane for me and I lost the pregnancy juzi. To be honest I’ve cried and asked God so many questions. I have given my husband stress. He is trying to make me be okay,” Size 8 said.

The couple later broke up due to irreconcilable differences.
Size 8 has withdrawn her support for DK Kwenye Beat.
She has released a statement addressing her interview with DK Kwenye Beat on the #Toboa story.
Size 8 said:
“I had an interview with my our family friend DK to further understand the #Toboa story. More facts emerged during and after the interview.”
She added, “I unequivocally reject his actions, and those by any person, that in any way inhibit the rights or safety of another human being. I further reached out to the lady in the story. We pray that justice may prevail and that the girl in the story shall get a full & comprehensive recovery, of both mind and body.”
Here is the screenshot.
This comes after DJ Mo also withdrew his support.
Size 8 has deleted all the videos supporting DK Kwenye Beat’s apology that was posted up late last night.
Size 8 revealed that after posting the apology from DK Kwenye Beat, she reached out to the victim.
“After talking to Dk I also talked to the lady in question after finally getting her contact. She is such a nice lady.
And yes for sure she is in great pain I really feel her after our talk she at least felt the love of JESUS CHRIST but she didn’t expose the story out of bitterness she was just trying to create awareness to other ladies to be safe and not trust anyone.
Adding, “Please the people judging her stop it if you don’t know someone’s past don’t judge the present. She is also completely changed working towards her dream of becoming a humanitarian and a counselor.
She continued, “My love goes out to her. And I believe she is going to be a great woman very soon. The journey of healing starts with one step. And by God’s grace am walking with her for total healing is a process. To DK Hopekid and the young lady, the devil is the greatest enemy here trying to destroy these three stars with his rubbish ashindwe IN JESUS NAME.”
Also it did not help that the gospel artistes were mocking their victim in an audio that was leaked online.
