Timing is everything – Tanasha Donna on life, love and success

 

Tanasha has a message to anyone losing hope.

The singer who is keeping fans anxious with her yet to be released album, shared a hopeful note that suggested it’s all about timing.

Be it your career, love life or spiritual journey, Tanasha said

“The hardest part about wanting something  real is trying to convince everybody you’re not crazy for feeling like you deserve it. But then you realize you don’t have to prove anything  to anybody. All you have to do is be patient enough to make it right, be committed enough to make it, be honest enough to make it last . YUs genuine ones deserve something great we deserve something authentic  and we reserve the right to not to be impressed  with the usual. its not to about  being too picky or having unrealistic expectations. It’s about knowing you’ve dealt with enough BS and earned the right to have a preference.

Stay true to you even when nobody gets it. Trust your heart even when your scared. Believe in love, even after you’ve been hurt, things get better the minute we stop expecting them to be perfect, timing is everything so always remember some amazing things can happen when you mix patience with hope”

 

Dear Classic 105 fam, just be yourself, love yourself for who you are and just keep going.

Diamond Platnumz deleting his son’s photos is an example of a bad father

Diamond Platnumz has deleted multiple photos of his son, Naseeb Junior whom he sired with Tanasha Donna. He only left only one photo on his Instagram page, an image that he put up in 2019 when the boy was born.

The reason why this move is very odd, is that the photos of the kids he got with both Zari Hassan and Hamisa Mobetto are still there in all their glory.

When asked about the move, the singer said that he was just on a random clean-up of his social media pages.

“Nimefuta posti nyingi sana, ata ukiona posti za wasani. Picha zangu nyingi pia nimezifuta. Nimependa sana za show,” he said.

The musician’s reason for deleting his last-born son’s photos is still suspect to me and many others with some wondering whether there was some bad blood brewing between him and Tanasha?

Get married! Fans tell Zari and Diamond as the two spend quality time together

It could be. Why? The undercurrents have been brewing since Diamond decided to visit Zarinah in South Africa in April.

First off, the singer spent an inordinate amount of time with the mother of his first two children, something he doesn’t do with both Hamisa and Tanasha.

Secondly, Chibu and Zari looked so good together that many wondered whether they could be getting back together? And that’s not all, during this year’s Mother’s day, both Tanasha and Hamisa wished each other a happy Mother’s Day while conveniently ignoring Zari.

Diamond for his part played favourites again when he decided to name only Zari’s kids during this year’s Idd celebrations.

We know that the singer speaks to his baby mamas privately and I think that what plays out in public is normally a manifestation of what is hidden.

I think that him deleting his sons’ photos might be a warning to Tanasha to toe the line.

My thoughts

Despite what might be happening between him and his baby mamas, I don’t think that Diamond should punish his kids. It is unnecessary and they become collateral damage for something that they have had no part in.

At the end of the day, as a celebrity, his public indiscretions will affect his kids more than the average child. The bottom line, this is a poor example of fatherhood. Very poor…and Naseeb should not bear the brunt of it.

Singer Tanasha Donna is quite excited this week. And what’s the reason? That her mother, Diana Oketch is now 50-years-old. Tanasha decided to celebrate her mom’s birthday with some beautiful throwback photos of the two.

And one thing I must admit is that mama Tanasha looks really good for her age, I must say! Miss Donna released never seen before photos of her mum using her IG stories where she not only celebrated the 50th birthday; but also got to show a photo of young Tanasha Donna that we never knew existed.

Diamond Platnumz’ close friend savagely disses Huddah after beef with Tanasha

I don’t think Huddah Monroe had any idea the hornet’s nest that she was poking when she trolled Tanasha Donna on her impressive feat of becoming the most followed Kenyan female on Instagram.

The beef escalated online with Tanasha getting a lot of support from hardcore fans-most of them from the country her baby daddy Diamond comes from, Tanzania.

Huddah vs Tanasha
Huddah vs Tanasha

With the jealousy so obvious – Ms. Donna’s Tanzanian fans started hitting back on behalf of their ‘queen.’ As usual, they did not hold back from throwing the meanest insults; which again pushed Huddah to make yet another mistake of abusing them.

In the end, I think Huddah realized that she couldn’t win this war and did an apology-non-apology.

“If anyone can have it, I don’t want it!” Tanasha says as beef with Huddah escalates

But it seems that while her little tiff with Tanasha might have ended that doesn’t mean that her Tanzanian in-laws were placated yet.

And all because of an IG post where Huddah referred to Tanzanians on social media as idle robots; who are good at wasting both their data and time investigating other people’s lives.

Juma Lokole, Diamond’s wonderful friend led the charge for our Southern neighbours and came out with a clap back that would make even the most foul-mouthed people blush.

Juma Lokole hit back at Huddah’s privates for the major mileage they had covered over the years. In a post shared by blogger Original East, Juma Lokole is seen throwing Huddah shade saying, “Robot K*[email protected] yake inayogusa mchanga mxiiiiiiiu”

Those with long memories will remember that Huddah is disliked by the WCB family, following the 2014 drama where she claimed that she had slept with Diamond who at the time was still involved with Zari.

Huddah denies calling Tanasha the most followed celebrity ‘with no value’

 

Does being the most followed celebrity mean they are successful? That was the discussion Huddah debated on Tuesday.

Huddah Monroe hit a raw nerve after sharing her thoughts on why some celebrities with the most followers still are not successful.

This came shortly after Tanasha Donna revealed she is now the most followed female celebrity with 3million fans.

So Kenyans linked Huddah’s thoughts as slamming Tanasha.

Huddah has now doubled down on her thoughts saying she wasn’t referring to Tanasha but many African celebrities in general.

She said that “lol I wasn’t even talking about anyone in particular, you people just love to hate and twist things”

“Funny part is people equate followers to success LMFAO! LOL! I cannot cannot afford to hate on people coz of followers surely it’s not MONEY, CAR or HOUSE!

My two million followers don’t mean its 2M$And what is a celebrity with no money? Just a most followed person. 0 per cent of African followers don’t support what you put out! just giving likes and numbers. That’s not SUCCESS And that’s why I cant hate I state facts!

“If anyone can have it, I don’t want it!” Tanasha says as beef with Huddah escalates

The Huddah Monroe and Tanasha Donna situation seems to be getting each day. For those of you not apprised of the beef, it all started after Alhuddah threw some shade Tanasha’s way after Diamond’s baby mama celebrated becoming the most followed Kenyan female on Instagram.

Is Huddah right in trolling Tanasha after she became Kenyan’s most followed Instagrammer?

She added that such things no longer matter if there is no money in it. The post read; “Lol! So funny how in 2021 people still fight for who is most followed in Kenya/Africa or has most likes lol!

Adding;

But what’s your BANK BALANCE? Darliing? In this side of town we evolved! Even companies know followers don’t mean buyers 90% of the time esp in Africa cause most just follow for gossip and lurking! Otherwise we would have small businesses going to the moon outchea.”

And Tanasha was having none of it. True to form she came back with her own fire, by taking a swipe at Huddah’s career by saying, “If anyone can have it, I don’t want it,”

Ouch! Don’t forget that Huddah has previously admitted to sleeping with older men for money. Tanasha’s diss seems to have done the trick as the entrepreneur who spends a lot of time in Dubai tried to distance herself from claims pointing out that her initial post was aimed at Tanasha Donna.

In her passive-aggressive post, the former Big Brother Africa contestant rubbished the claims while also laughing of Tanasha’s response. She wrote, “If you have pus*y, I have. If it’s beauty I have it. So what’s to be envious of? Followers? Lol!”

Despite her statement, many fans in Tanasha’s comment section said that Miss Monroe was the victim of the green-eyed monster, now that Tanasha had surpassed her with the most followed Instagram account in the country.

Is Huddah right in trolling Tanasha after she became Kenyan’s most followed Instagrammer?

Tanasha Donna might be celebrating becoming the first Kenyan woman to hit 3 million followers on Instagram. Eric Omondi already is Kenya’s most-followed Instagram celeb with 3.2 million fans.

This was something that she was quick to enthuse about, praising her online family with the caption below,

Thank you for the 3M. Love you guys so much! ❤️❤️

 

But while many were quick to congratulate her, former friend or should I call her new enemy Huddah Monroe was quick to burst her bubble, with her post coming right after Tanasha’s announcement.

Huddah’s post just came moments after Tanasha’s new win; and you can’t blame us for thinking the two posts could be related.

Miss Monroe is seen trolling those who claim to have huge IG followers; yet the followers do nothing for them.
According to Huddah, times have changed and followers no longer matter unless they help generate money for you.

She wrote; “Lol! So funny how in 2021 people still fight for who is most followed in Kenya/Africa or has most likes lol! Can walk the talk?

She even added, “But what’s your BANK BALANCE? Darling? In this side of town we evolved! Even companies know followers don’t mean buyers 90% of the time esp in Africa cause most just follow for gossip and lurking! Otherwise, we would have small businesses going to the moon outchea.”

Is what Huddah is saying true? Yes, but partially. There is more nuance to that.

Firstly, brands will always want to be associated with a brand influencer with large numbers. Always. This normally translates to reach for a company that uses the influencer to promote the page just like Eric Omondi, Kate Actress and even Huddah herself.

The second thing that brands will look for is engagement by an influencer’s fans on the influencer’s page. There are Instagram pages online that have fewer than 100k followers but have great engagement with their followers. This means that a product that the influencer promotes will most likely have better traction with his/her followers such as Just Ivy and Edgar Obare.

Most companies prefer that the brand influencers they use have both of the above. Examples of entertainers with both reach and engagement are, Eric Omondi, Elsa Majimbo and Jalang’o. Their rate cards reflect the power and clout they have in reaching and influencing a demographic.

Now back to Tanasha. While her engagement might not be great, her numbers reflect an eagerness for the public to engage with her.

This is where professional brand management is critical for her. She needs people who can sell her beyond just being Diamond’s baby mama and a lukewarm singer. That is what will turn her brand from just being popular to being lucrative.

But I could be wrong…

Shamed Tanasha finally apologises to make-up artiste and pays her

Singer Tanasha Donna has been in the news recently over an embarrassing allegation that she had refused to pay a bill to make-up artist Zena Glam (Sylvia), amounting to Sh15K.

Tanasha had allowed the molehill to turn into a mountain and had subsequently gotten bad press as she ignored the allegations from Zena.

This had made the former Ebru TV Presenter Dana de Grazia, buckle down producing receipts for her friend, Zena to prove her accusations.

But it seems that Miss Donna doesn’t want to sow bad karma and decided to clear the bill, taking full responsibility for the incident with an explanation that she rarely handles her finances, during video shoots.

The bill in question is said to have been incurred during the Kalypso video shoot in November last year.

“Let me make one thing clear. It’s just came to my attention recently that one of the makeup artistes for my previous videos payment wasn’t made, as I never personally handle anything to do with finances for my projects myself. I have a team for that, however I understand that my name is the one that will be in jeopardized and obviously not my person handling my finances! Had I known this earlier, this would have been long sorted. I would like to state that the payment has been made. I apologize on behalf of myself and my team for my inconveniences caused., this was not done deliberately, our schedules have been extremely hectic recently, however it’s no excuse,” said Tanasha Donna.

Ms. Donna’s statement comes days after Diamond’s baby mama was raked over the coals by Kenyans after the allegations surfaced.

After the bill was cleared, Ms. Grazia went back to report that her friend had received the cash and her public outcry was not aimed at ruining anyone’s reputation.

Balancing career and motherhood is not easy. Ask any Kenyan woman around you, and for Tanasha this is the same.

Trolls have noticed this and accused her of not spending enough time and neglecting her mother duties to YOLO.

For instance just recently Diamond flew into Kenya for a private performance and was seen taking their son Naseeb Junior back with him to Tanzania. All this time, Tanasha was in Mombasa enjoying herself. She was sharing videos hanging out with her friends on a yatch, leading to further condemnation that she has neglected Naseeb.
