Chris Brown and Migos ‘involved in a brawl after the BET Awards’


1. Insiders say Karrueche was told in advance the notorious bad boy would be performing at the awards show, but she opted to go ahead with her appearance anyway, which had been arranged two months prior.

2. She was apparently moved into a holding room during the Party singer’s performance.

3. Sources say she didn’t watch his performance on a screen from inside the room, and instead simply waited it out.

4. Furthermore, Chris never sat in the audience during the awards show.

5. He was kept backstage throughout the show to ensure their paths never crossed and to maintain the legal distance required between them.

Last week, a judge ordered the restraining order stay in place for the next five years.

The troubled singer was first served with papers for the restraining order during his birthday party back in May.

Party Vibes: Adelle And Shaffie Stun At The Moët & Chandon Party

A party to introduce the Moët Nectar Imperial brand to Kenya went down on Thursday ahead of the official bash set to be held today.

Kenyan celebrities joined businessmen among others to wine and dine at the exclusive party held at a swanky local hotel.

Kiss FM presenters Adelle Onyango and Shaffie Weru were among the celebrities spotted at the bash.

Shaffie Weru was truly living his lavish reputation, and was joined by his co-host Adelle Onyango, and the two looked simply stunning.

It’s not often that we see Adelle wearing a dress. The only other time I think I have seen her was in her photo shoot for the cover of True Love magazine a few months back.

Team Mafisi, feast your eyes on Adelle, as she looks all ravishing in leggings and boots.

I guess my invite got lost in the mail? Anyway, it looks like it was a fab event. Check out pictures of the two as they posed for photos.

“I love being his wife but I’m also very intentional about staying his girlfriend! I knew he wouldn’t mind me wearing the flat sandals that I thought about wearing, but I chose to wear the wedges that I know he loves. I pay attention to what makes him smile😉! I share this not because I’ve always done it perfect but I grew to learn the balance. Although sometimes he gets my bonnet lol, he should also get his Boo! #keepdating #21years #kirkandtammy #swipeleft”

The event was a classy affair and Vera Sidika thought it wise to invite all the influential peeps in the entertainment industry.

She invited Khaligraph Jones whom she started a beef with recently after mocking him for bleaching his skin.

She posted on her Instagram

“Everyone has been sending me screenshots of this boy posting a photoshopped pic claiming “tulitoa tint pamoja” first things first; My dear hujatoa tint bado! TINT yako bado imeacha ma traces nyuma coz ulitoa manually badala ya automaticallywhat kind of man bleaches!???? Bleaching and skin lighting is for women. Not men. Cause it’s like make up. Men don’t apply make up.Oh plus we ain’t the same bro! Skin lightening and bleaching are two totally different things…Stay on your lane Prissss!”

Papa Jones na yeye sio mdogo.

He responded.

The lyrical rap star who is famed for singles like Mazishi and Yego seems to have taken things to a personal level.

He will not be associated with her. WHATSOEVER.

According to the Pulse who have a guest list to Vera’s shindig, The rapper failed to send and RSVP and even show up for the event.

Beef bado inaendelea.

Khaligraph had been listed alongside other celebrity guests such as Jalang’o, Lulu Hassan, Shaffie Weru and Amina Amaru.

Kenya Is About To Be Introduced To A New Superstar! [VIDEO]

When was the last time your anxiety hit the 100% mark?

Were you among the hard working students in class who would battle it out to get the highest marks? Remember when the teacher would offer a gift for the top student?

Well, the same is happening in the biggest reality show in Kenya, Kiss TV’s The Search. The only difference is, there’s no candy being offered to the contestants. The winner will be walking away with 1 million shillings and a super recording deal.

The.Search..NEW.Full.Pager..Top.10.01

Now that many contestants have already gone home, the competition has gotten even tighter. Who will be the lucky star? Who are your rooting for yourself?

You can be part of this journey too. You can be the first to discover the next big musician in Kenya. All you need to do is to tune in to Kiss TV this Sunday at 8PM to watch The Search.

Here’s the preview to the show:

Kiss TV’s The Search Is Almost Over? Who Will Be The WInner?

As we officially kick off the weekend, it is also time to prepare for the biggest show in the country. I am talking about The Search on Kiss TV.

The exciting reality show is on the search to discover the next big star in the Kenyan musical scene. It has been a journey filled with laughter and tears as the contestants shared moments together.

Several contestants have left the show and we are nearing the announcement of the winner, who will walk away with 1 million shillings and a major recording deal. It’s never easy to win such a huge amount of money, which is the reason why the teams are working extra hard to walk away with the money.

When I was younger, I used to be an aspiring musician. However, when I grew up, I realized that it’s more than just reciting someone else’s lyrics. For people who are passionate like the teams on The Search, this is totally different for them. They would love to pursue music as a long term life engagement.

This is the exact reason why you should tune in this weekend as it will be a really exciting show!

Tune in to Kiss TV on Sunday to catch the show!

Forget His Diva Character! Here Are 5 DISGUSTING Scandals Burna Boy Has Been Involved In

Nigerian singer Burna Boy was performing at a popular club in Kenya last weekend, which turned out to be an epic fail. Burna Boy went on stage a few minutes to 4am after lateness that our sources say might have been intentional.

Hours after, the Tonight hit maker traded barbs with Kenyan R&B singer Anto Neosoul, which was followed by him blocking Anto and other Kenyans who tried to tweet him. He would go ahead to insult a popular radio presenter and call his Kenyan fans ‘peasants’.

This is not the only drama he has. Burna Boy has broken the Internet with even more scandals:

He Stripped Naked At A Tribute

In October 2013, Burna Boy stripped naked at a tribute to legendary Afrobeat proponent, the late Fela Kuti, while performing his  Run My Race song, which left many jaws dropping over the situation and condemning the artiste for such disgusting behaviour.

Fights With Fellow Artistes

In January 2015, Burna Boy was involved in a fight with a dancehall artiste identified as Nuffalo Soulja in South Africa. According to top dancehall African act Buffalo Souja, Burna Boy’s entourage physically assaulted him at the Annual All-White Party organised by South African rapper Da Les.
