|Timmy and Otile Brown|
In Nairobi you gotta have a strategy to survive. This is no different to the music industry. Musicians work hard to get their best out of their fans.Otile Brown and Timmy Tdat pulled a public stunt in Venessa Mdee’s party just to get attention.
We saw the same happening to Khaligraph and Eric Omondi only to find out it was a promotion strategy. Well, we always expect real stuff like King Kaka’s and Jimwat’s (not spiced up though) or the Drake and Meek Mill stuff.
The Duo are best friends and now singing to a new tune Tam Tam. The fans business community is heartbroken with the short-term beef which lasted shorter than a quickie.
Let’s support Kenyan music and promote our own.
|Man hitting on a woman|
A relationship is a good thing when both parties enjoy. On the other hand, being single these days has become a stigma. Women often fear loneliness and in many instances, they act so ‘cheap’ only to get rid of boredom and loneliness. Men can sense desperation in a lady.
So ladies listen keenly if you want to be worth gold in your relationships. Its all about packaging yourself. Don’t give out too much. Focus. Don’t be an open book for him. Not everyone sees things as it seems. He does not have to know every single detail in your life even if you think he is the potential one.
Pursue your interest and your self-growth and it will communicate a certain type of confidence that will be quite hard to ignore. This will awaken your potential partner’s urge to have you by his side forever. Thank me later.
Diana Marua, wife of Bahati gave birth to a bouncing baby at Karen hospital. The celebrity couple has been flaunting pictures on social media of baby bump.
Diana took to her social media thanking God for the blessings;
“HE HAS DONE EXCEEDINGLY ABUNDANTLY ALL THAT I ASKED OR THOUGHT OF. YU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH WE PRAYED FOR YOU @HEAVENBAHATII’M LOOKING AT THE HEAVENS AND I’M AMAZED BY GOD’S GIFT TO US. YOU ARE BLESSED MY ANGEL @HEAVENBAHATI
Bahati on the other side has been busy with his angel HeavenBahati.

Having a good job is a big security for anyone. Many people depend on their salary and can’t invest on the little they got, This is why Citizen TV producer and anchor Swale Mdoe is advertising his Kidney.
A senior anchor in a leading TV in the country auctioning his kidney with a salary of half a million got me wondering what am doing with my life. Then I figured out that I have ten toes, I can manage to walk with six ( Just kidding)
Swaleh has had a good reputation from his Tafakari ya babu but what has gotten into him, angels only knows. He claims that he is gone broke and he wants to sell his kidney.
“I don’t really want to bother people. I don’t. I can live with one kidney. I have decided to sell one of my kidneys after consulting my doctor on the matter. I have some pressing financial issues that I want to offset and all I can think of right now is selling my kidney.” he said.
|Jimwat and King Kaka|
King Kaka has grown in the hip-hop industry and he is the big thing in the music industry in Kenya. Having raised many artistes musically, he is a self-proclaimed king (Jimwat’s voice),
After he released his diss lyrics video on artists who helped him up and who did not, Jimwat did not take it lightly and went on dissing him.
King Kaka always say as it is and in his song, he mentioned a couple of artists inclusive of SautiSol, Kantai, Ulopa, Kalahari, Khali D, Punit and Nameless.
“Back and forth me na Bien, Sauti Sol walininyima chorus, Nameless alininyima nangos, ni life sahii natambua”
Jimwat had to fight back because that is all about hip-hop and he went hard on King Kaka
“Hakuna King hujicrown, hucrowniwa na wathii. Usilniletee issues zako drama queeen!”
his said in his diss song. It’s like Kaka woke the sleeping lion and now the beef is beefed up.
|Wilson and Ann|
Remember the 1$ wedding couple? months after their colorful wedding, they are now happy with a bouncing baby. The couple did a ‘cheap wedding for they did not afford. This transforms to publicity in the new media.
He said that he could not manage to raise funds hence the simple wedding;
“UNFORTUNATELY WE COULD NOT RAISE MONEY FOR THE WEDDING. I AM EMPLOYED TO SELL APPLES IN A MKOKOTENI WHERE I’M PAID ON COMMISSION. IF I SELL APPLES WORTH SH1,000, I AM PAID SH100. HAVING NOT RAISED THE CASH, WE CANCELED THE WEDDING,” SAID WILSON.
However how much blessed they were, haters comes in. Here is his words for haters who are ‘jealous’ of his happy family;
“ONGEENI MAMBO MENGINE!! LAKINI YA FAMILIA YANGU!? IACHANWE NAYO WALIOSEMA TUMEACHANA?? TAHADHALINI SANA MAISHA YENU YA USONI….”
In Kenya, January is the toughest month in our calendar. This was the case of media houses that were shut down following the broadcast of swearing in of opposition leader Raila Odinga. For a while, this was like a joke but the government applied full-force in this situation.

Larry Madowo was among the affected parties in this crackdown. But for him, he never keeps calm he speaks out what is in his mind regardless of the audience and outcome. Last week, his article was not printed on the Nation Newspaper which he had secured a space for over four years now, but Larry Madowo always has other avenues to put his articles. The agitated media personality took his article to CNN and posted on his Twitter account. What could have caused this?
He shared the news.
|Larry Madowo’s post|
On the article, he speaks of how he spent the night in the Nation Media Group office after plain-clothed police officers camped outside his office with intentions of arresting him alongside his counterpart Linus Kakai.

Lilian Muli is a true definition of brave woman. In this era of new media, women have been targeted by the internet. From cyber-bullying to body shamming to even mocking by the social media users. All of these has not stopped Lilian Muli.
She speaks of her private life in public and is comfortable with it. The social media Gurus, the like of Cyprian Nyakundi have tried tainting her name in the name of rebuking the new social status,”sponsor”
For media personalities, they inform the public and in many cases, they act as agenda-setting tools. But with it comes demerits. Twitter and Facebook taking the lead in social media interactions, some are forced to quit because of an unfavourable environment. But for Lilian Muli, she calls no quits!
“USIONE SIMBA AMENYESHEWA UKADHANI NI PAKA. IT’S SAD THAT MANY PEOPLE I KNOW IN THIS INDUSTRY OPT OUT OF SOCIAL MEDIA COZ THEY JUST CAN’T STAND THE NEGATIVITY. I, HOWEVER, WON’T STOP AND CERTAINLY WON’T QUIT LOVE ME OR NOT I’M HERE TO STAY”
