Haven’t been able to sleep! Xtian Dela says after cyber-bullying due to LGBT stance

Many Kenyans online have a known record of being cyberbullies, something that controversial blogger and social media influencer Xtian Dela has suffered from this past week.

Xtian has been under the cosh after his comments on Monday where he announced his support for LGBTQ issues as he revealed his manifesto for the Westlands constituency seat.

It has gotten so bad that the formidable and take-no-prisoners Dela has had to speak on the issue on his popular Twitter handle.

He said that the hurtful reactions had had a detrimental effect on his sleep.

“Been getting hate comments, calls, emails, DMs, calls, and texts all day because of my LGBT stand. The INSULTS, HATE and BILE are just too much. Haven’t been able to even sleep. The CYBER BULLYING I’m receiving is EXTREME. Too much hate for LGBT,” tweeted Xtian Dela.

On Monday, Mr. Dela announced that the LGBT community will be his first priority if he clinches the Westlands Parliamentary seat in 2022.

“Let’s be REAL…Most young people in Kenya are part of the LGBTQI community! You and I both have very amazing gay friends and we have NO issue about it!! It’s high time as Kenyans we accepted this fact and legislated laws that PROTECT them instead of criminalizing and insulting them!!..If we have no issue with them personally, why don’t we PROTECT them PUBLICLY & constitutionally?!?” wrote Xtian Dela.

He added;

“People should be FREE to love who they WANT in private and public! Love is love and it’s high time KENYA embraced that!!If we believe we are created equal, the love we show each other MUST also be equal. No Cap!!…Why live like a THUG in hiding Just because of LOVE?!…It’s high time EVERYONE had a voice!!….My LGBTQI friends who ain’t in WESTLANDS, Change your vote to Westlands and let your VOICE finally be heard by voting for me as Westlands MP!! Time to make laws that benefit EVERYONE!!”

Dela isn’t the only prominent celeb to take up the LGBTQ cause. Former BBC journalist and Tahidi High actress Makena Njeri has also started her own foundation to help push and fight for LGBTQ issues.

Makena is all in and even went as far as coming out of the closet to reveal that she was gay.

Should Xtian Dela’s surprising bid to become Westlands MP be encouraged?

This week, popular blogger Xtian Dela has surprised many of his fans and followers alike when he announced his bid to run for Member of Parliament of Westlands Constituency in 2022.

Dela informed Kenyans of his intention to get into the political scene via his Twitter page where raged about “old and useless” politicians.

The controversial blogger vowed to ‘show the power of social media’ and the impact the youth in Kenya can have.

“Let’s show them the POWER of Social Media and the power of the YOUTH in Kenya who are TIRED of OLD and USELESS politicians!!!! I BELIEVE WE WILL WIN!!! OUR VOICES MUST BE HEARD!!!!”

While he said that he didn’t have a manifesto yet, one of the main things on his agenda is to create jobs and ‘safe spaces’ to inspire the youth’s creativity.

Kenyans on Twitter have reacted to Xtian’s bid with mixed opinions. Those in agreement said that we needed youth in leadership, something that Xtian would bring.

Those in opposition noted that his controversial past as a blogger and his hairstyle as being stumbling blocks that might hinder his bid.

Dangerous and exciting! Xtian Dela and Edgar Obare’s brand of Instagram journalism

While Xtian might not have the quintessential CV of most suave politicians, I think we should all support his bid to run for a political seat and I have a few reasons for that sentiment.

First off, Xtian already meets all the legal requirements to become a member of parliament despite his controversial past as an entertainer and blogger. Don’t forget that someone like Charles Njagua alias Jaguar became MP of Starehe despite his background in music.

Secondly, I don’t think we can do much worse than Xtian. Even the politicians we have in this country who have the right backgrounds in the glorified careers like law, medicine, and economics have already been disappointments. At least Xtian starts with a very low ceiling, all he can do is surpass most people’s expectations.

Lastly, two of the most revered politicians in American history, Ronald Reagan and Arnold Schwarzenegger both had exceptional film and screen backgrounds before they run for public office.

They were untested greenhorns who proved their caliber when they both became two-time governors for California (with Reagan becoming president later on), showing that entertainers could still do the job as well as the best of them.

So, yes Xtian can be a surprise package. At least if he fails, he will continue the long list of failures that we have in Kenyans politics.

Xtian Dela is a broke man, we are not on the same level – Ringtone declares (exclusive)

Ringtone and Xtian Dela are at war. The reason for that is Shakila’s interview with Dela where she alleged that Ringtone had slid into her DMs, something the gospel singer strenuously denied.

He went on to threaten Xtian Dela that if he continued with such behavior, he would send a couple of gay men to rape him in a video he has since pulled down.

Xtian Dela quickly responded to Ringtone’s video and threatened to expose Ringtone for who he is, requesting for some of his followers to come forward with scandalous information about the gospel singer.

When I asked the singer what he had to say about this threat, he said that he wasn’t afraid.

“He should expose me then. I am a public figure. Anybody who has anything about me, let them print, let them post, neither am I paying anybody to be exposed. Let him do it. Let him expose him. Tell him to do it quickly. He is failing his evil fans.”

He then went on to add that he was wondering why the prominent social media influencer hadn’t yet turned up any crazy information about him.

“I went to sleep early-you know as rich people do that-waiting for big things to be dropped by him, kumbe it’s all fake stuff. He is failing his fans or he will lose credibility.”

She isn’t even in my class like Zari – Ringtone dismisses socialite Shakila (exclusive)

Mr. Apoko then savagely attacked Xtian’s pocket. “I know he is a broke man. I don’t fear anything from him. Dela is paying rent, I am living in my own home. When I wake up I count the number of cars that I have. Dela is paying a loan. Between me and him who should be afraid? I do not sing to get money. I do it because of the love of God.”

Ringtone explained that he had deleted his controversial video because his pastor had called him and told him to remove it. He said that the video has served its purpose as the bloggers had already seen it and published it.

The singer then went on to say that Shakila had been coached poorly by Xtian and that some of her facts weren’t accurate.

“Tell him that when he is coaching that girl (Shakila) he should do it well and not the way he has done. When she says that I have a grey Mercedes Benz, that isn’t true cause I haven’t ever owned one.”

Ringtone feels that Xtian is trying to get clout and that the interview was one way to go about it. “Xtian Dela wants clout and he had coached Shakila to name big celebs.”

Adding, “He has called me many times to go to his live and I have refused. Me and Xtian Dela don’t know each other personally. I don’t have his number and maybe he has mine. We are not on the same level, with all due respect.”

He finished off by saying that he would pray for Xtian. “I will pray for him. You see he is a pagan. I will pray for him and prayer works.”

Poll-Do you believe Edgar Obare’s story that he was tortured by the police?

Yesterday, his “Teaness” Edgar Obare narrated an experience that he went through at the hands of his supposed abductors after it was reported that he had gone missing on Monday.

#EdgarObare Narrates What Happened Yesterday 😟

A post shared by Nairobi Gossip Club (@nairobi_gossip_club) on

Obare claimed that the people who had abducted him had refused to reveal their identities after whisking him into a car. They then covered his eyes so that he could not see which direction they were heading towards.

“They accused me of extorting money from these people and asked who pays me to insult people. They all verbally threatened me saying if I ever exposed him for cheating, he would kill me, another guy said that he would f**k me in the ass,” said Obare in one of his many posts.

He added that the kidnappers kept asking him about DJ Mo, Size 8, Jalang’o, Joho and why he insulted them, and that he should look for a better job to do.

After refusing to answer their questions, Obare claims the guys beat him up before they drugged him using drinking water which he had asked for, before they stripped him naked in the car, and took pictures of his private parts. He was eventually dumped at a thicket near Nyeri.

These allegations came right after Xtian Dela claimed on Monday that his friend had gone missing after he was picked by unknown people claiming to be police from the Kiambu Law courts where he had gone for the mention of a case against him.

Why Xtian Dela hanging out with Shakila after their crazy interview is a big blunder

Xtian Dela and Shakila were the talk of the gossip pages last week after their highly controversial Instalive where the socialite revealed a lot about herself.

The whole interview was high-octane with Shakila showing many that she wasn’t afraid to speak her mind about the interesting life choices that she had made.

But the thing that stood out for most was that she involved some famous male celebs in her stories claiming that she had slept with them.

She even accused Haramber Star’s captain Victor Wanyama of being one of her clients and that he had allegedly paid her Sh. 250k, who said that he would sue her.

Xtian was also drugged into the furor by some of the male celebs asking how he could allow the socialite to sully their names in such a fashion.

But it seems that Xtian and Shakila love reveling in the controversy. Why? The remnants of the storm that the interview created haven’t still ended but it seems that Xtian and Shakila don’t mind keeping it fresh in the publics’ minds.

Dangerous and exciting! Xtian Dela and Edgar Obare’s brand of Instagram journalism

Yesterday, Dela posted an image of himself holding Shakila and from the photo, one could tell how much fun they were having.

Shakila herself even shared an intimate video of the two making crazy moves. Thereafter leaning in to plant a kiss on the blogger’s neck, with a suggestive caption: “Guess who touching this lil dingly tonight 🤭🤭🤭”

While the two might have been having the time of their lives, many Kenyans in the comment section were offended by the picture and video saying that they had been played.

In essence, Kenyans were doubtful about the veracity of the contents of the controversial interview considering how “close” Xtian and Shakila were with each other.

In my view, Xtian did a blunder with his move of hanging out with Shakila. It makes him look biased for one. It also makes one question his professionalism considering how many people called out Shakila for lying on the interview.

Forcing the discerning public to ask, “Does Xtian hanging out with Shakila endorse all the information she dished out?” Lastly, for the long-term, I think it tarnishes his image as a man who is in search of the truth despite his personal biases.

Xtian is a man who prides himself on doing expose’s that are normally well-researched and can be backed by some form of evidence.

I think this public dalliance with Shakila will really hurt that reputation with some speculating about whether he held the incendiary interview because he was personally invested in it and not out of professional objectivism.

But what do I know?

Dangerous and exciting! Xtian Dela and Edgar Obare’s brand of Instagram journalism

Edgar Obare and Xtian Dela have become household names this year. The reason is the expose’s they have done on various celebs that have gotten tongues wagging furiously.

The two use their popular Instagram pages where they air many celeb’s dirty linen. Their “Instagram journalism” is the new fad in Kenyan media following trends that have been happening abroad.

The controversial celebs use their Instastories to deliver the tea (gossip and hot takes) on various celebs.

Edgar was the first to get into many celebs bad books when he exposed the likes of Terrence Creative, Huddah Monroe and Alex Mwakideu in the beginning of 2020.

His infamy with many celebs reached its zenith when he exposed Natalie Tewa, and was charged with unlawfully publishing private and personal details from the passport.

According to his charge sheet, “On diverse dates between July 9 and July 13, 2020, at an unknown place, within the Republic of Kenya, using your social media accounts, domain name www.bnn.ke and verified Instagram account @edgarobare, unlawfully disclosed to your online followers, personal data to wit visa belonging to one Natalie Wanjiru Githinji without her consent.”

Since then, Edgar has become more subdued with his page rarely having any more revelations about big-time celebs with the chastened Obare exposing bad habits by Kenyans but without exposing the names of those accused.

But it seems that Xtian Dela has taken the torch from his good friend Egdar and last week caused a hullabaloo when he interviewed socialite Shakila.

The conversation caused a lot of trouble for him as Shakila claimed that she had slept with various Kenyan celebs at great cost. One man she mentioned was Kenyan footballer Victor Wanyama, who she claimed had paid her Sh.250k to sleep with her.

Wanyama was quick to respond to the allegation and said that he had launched legal proceedings against the blogger. Through a statement shared via Twitter, Wanyama denied ever meeting Xtian and Shakila, terming the claims in the video as ‘defamatory’ and a ‘fabrication’.

What does Kenyan law say? The Law of Defamation in Kenya states;

“[a]ny person who, by print, writing, painting or effigy, or by any means otherwise than solely by gestures, spoken words or other sounds, unlawfully publishes any defamatory matter concerning another person, with intent to defame that other person, is guilty of the misdemeanour termed libel.”

I am not a lawyer but I have been properly advised on how to run a story by the company lawyers. Two aspects that have stood out to me were;

-The standard of proof/evidence presented in a story should be meet a certain threshold.

-A fair opportunity to reply to inaccuracies must be given when reasonably called for.

While Edgar and Xtian try to meet the first standard (even vaguely) a lot of the time, I find that the second aspect is normally not done.

KTN journalist Ben Kitili even highlighted the problems he sees with the way Obare operates writing,

In conclusion

While Edgar and Xtian’s brand of journalism get’s the heart racing, it is not only dangerous for the person being “exposed” but for the exposer himself, something that Edgar and Xtian (if Wanyama actually sues) are already seeing.

His contemporary Xtian Dela is leading the charge, disclosing that Mr. Obare’s devices had been confiscated and it was his media team that was posting updates.

The man who has become infamous for his famous expose`s on popular celebrities has been at Gigiri police station and is complaining that he feels unsafe while there.

Using his verified social media pages, Edgar claimed not to be safe at the station with a tweet that read, “I am not safe and I don’t feel safe where I’m being held, I have struggled with getting bail but now I understand why it’s being denied. Please support #freeedgarobare.”

ezgif.com-webp-to-jpg (2)

Other posts on his Instagram page further added that police had sought to transfer him to another facility overnight.
Mr. Obare was summoned after a complaint allegedly filed by YouTuber Natalie Tewa.

The beef with Natalie might have started after some of his followers shared alleged receipts with him of her alleged whereabouts a few weeks. The claim was that she and Mombasa governor were in Dubai at the same time coincidentally!

Natalie Tewa finally speaks after rumours linking her to Governor Joho

The social media personality has been the hottest thing in town the past year with Edgar exposing the likes of Terrence Creative and Alex Mwakideu to name just a few.

This has caused him to build a steady supply of animosity from many celebrity quarters.

Ringtone comes clean after Xtian Dela claimed the singer drinks alcohol (exclusive)

Ringtone is no stranger to controversy – most of which he actively seeks out but there are times when he is an unwilling participant.

I will beat you! Willy Paul threatens Ringtone in escalating war

The singer found himself in a spot of bother this past weekend after social media influencer Xtian Dela called him and Willy Paul out for not living according to the word of God.

He claimed that the two singers used to drink alcohol adding that Willy Paul used to do it from way back.

“Ni vizuri Willy ameanza kukunywa siku hizi. alikuwa anajificha sana. Ringtone ni mwingine bro, nilienda kwake runda na akanitolea red sweet Mosconi wine and he changed my perspective though that’s not the first time I started taking alcohol,’ he said in an interview with comedian Felix Odiwuor.

When I called Ringtone for comment, the gospel singer was aghast that such allegations were been spread explaining that he had never met Xtian and if he had, he didn’t know him.

“I normally invite people to my home and sometimes they come with their friends. In those parties, I have an assortment of wines for those guests who want wine,” the Zoea Mawe singer said.

“I don’t drink alcohol myself but like Jesus visiting Zacchaeus home, I deal with people who might not believe the same as I do. But I believe that I can spend time with those people and affect them for Christ,” he added.

He finished off by challenging Xtian to produce receipts that they knew each other and added that he hadn’t known about the allegation until I told him, as he avoided people who spread prostitution;

“I don’t know him. we are not friends. Let him produce the messages. I don’t follow anyone that advocates for prostitution. I didn’t know about the story.”
