Qritiqal, Chocolate City’s newest Kenyan signee has released a video for his debut single “Malkia” under the label. The melodious track was shot in Nairobi with noticeable locations such as the Hilton Hotel.
Eric Onyango Omollo is a Kenyan singer and a songwriter. His unique ability to fuse dancehall, reggae, RnB and soul to create feel good music earned him the name Qritiqal derived from the word ‘critical’.
In his music career, he has released hit songs, won awards, done collaborations with well-established artistes in Kenya and worked on DJ dub-plates that are major theme songs for top DJ’s in the region. He got discovered and signed by Chocolate City in July 2016.
Everyone lies sometimes but these guys just took it too far. Take a seat as I give you the 411! Well, we all have our favorite celebrities and want to know their personal life, but hey, most of them keep lying to us. I guess they want to please us. Well, I found some experts who are well specialized to lying to Kenyans.
Stella Mwangi – I Had A Rap Battle With American Rapper Xzibit
This girl is quite something.! Recently, Stella Mwangi AKA STL, revealed (or should I say lied) that she and American celebrated rapper Xzibit were once pals when she was 14 and had a rap battle with him. Well, this story was the talk of the town after the rapper tweeted denying that she does know STL. Kenyans on twitter went ham on her and since then, the Biashara hit-maker has gone silent.
“I don’t know if you guys know about this rapper Xzibit, I don’t know. Sasa nilikuwa na battle na yeye when I was 14-years-old. I stepped up to him and told him, “let us battle”. So, I have been doing this for a while, it’s a matter of growing up and getting to know yourself better”

Octopizzo – I Have A Collabo With American Artist August Alsina
Remember the song This Could Be Us by Kenyan rapper Octopizzo? Well, when the song just hit the market, rumour had it that Octo had featured the American star in the song. Things got even worse when Kenyans on Twitter asked why the American singer was not in the video which was followed by a tweet from the singer’s management citing that Alsina had not featured in the song. Hilariously sad, right?
Steve Mbogo – I Am A Board Member At Faulu Bank
Faulu Microfinance Bank came out saying that the company had no dealings with the billionaire. In a letter that went viral, microfinance manager cited that Mbogo was neither a board member nor a chairman of the company. What a lie!
Prezzo – My Car Is Worth 15 Million
It was rumoured that Prezzo’s Chrysler was worth 15 million some time back. The rapper revealed this only days after rival artist Jaguar bought a car worth 16 million. Well, other sources stated that Prezzo’s car was estimated to actually be less than 15 million which indicated that CMB probably just wanted to compete with Jaguar.
Mr Seed – Bahati Is My Brother
Everyone thought that Mr. Seed and Bahati were real brothers until the truth came out that the two were just pals who grew up together. It became even more interesting when the two released a hit song dubbed Wangu. He probably should have said “Brother in Christ”
Willy Paul – Am Doing A Collabo With Diamond Platnumz
Nomaree! Diamond Platnumz denied ever doing or even planning to do a collabo with Tiga Wana’s artist Willy Pozze citing that Pozze was only introduced to him by Will Tuva. The two had photos of them together and later Diamond listened to Willy’s songs. Did I mention after they met, Diamond did not even remember Msafi’s name? Don’t worry Pozze, it’s part of life kijana!
Soon after the release of her latest video Anita and her track “Christmas Njema”, Kenyan/Congolese power vocalist – Alicios – of the hit song Mpita Njia featuring Ugandan songstress Juliana Kanyomozi, is back on the entertainment scene with hints of a new track featuring one of the hottest Hip Hop artists in Kenya, Khaligraph Jones.
The new single is set to feature in her upcoming music project and is written by Alicios, Khaligraph and Jerry and produced by Ihaji.
A few months ago, Alicios released a single dubbed ‘ANITA’. The single was set to feature in her upcoming music project which is written by herself and produced by RKay. Alicios also co-directed the video alongside Tanzanian video directors: Joowzey and Lucas of Joh Filmz. ‘ANITA’ is based on a true story with a storyline revolving around a home wrecker .
Alicios is also known for songs such as ‘Posa ya Bolingo’, ‘Pete’ featuring Kidum, ‘Niko Poa’ and ‘Mobimba’ with P-Unit among others.
Hata socialites hutoka mbali! Apart from a recent video of toothless and broke Huddah Monroe going viral, her photo as a baby is even worse.
The light skinned socialite, come business woman is one lass that has come a long way. Just the other day, she revealed how difficult it was for her to lose her 4 teeth after an accident which she later replaced.
Well, the video vixen girl cum model has finally made it in the industry and is among Kenya’s top socialites. Did I mention her ratchetness?
I agree that her baby pic may look adorable and messy at the same time, but have you seen those cheeks? Kwani alikua anakula nini?
The ever scandalous lass is now booming with her lipstick business which has extended over East Africa and is competing with fellow socialite Vera who has her own hair line.
Just last year, Huddah failed to appear at Diamond Platnumz’s beach party with claims that she and the Nasema Nawe hit maker did not agree. But hey, fans have it that she did not want to share the same stage with Vera. That makes sense, right?
Na si wamepotea sana! Apart from the artists who we well know released a couple of songs and went silent, there are those ‘one hit wonders’ who just released a hit and saw it better to give way to other celebrities.
From Ray C who was put down by hard drugs to the Longombas who moved to the US, there are those that we have not seen for the longest time after their one hit wonder.
His one hit wonder song with the legend Daddy Owen dubbed Kazi Ya Msalaba was one song that introduced this gospel kid to the music industry. After a couple of songs that did not do well, the Najua Upo song master has since then gone silent. Solomon Mkubwa has however tried to uplift this melodious uprising artist up again after a collabo dubbed Wewe Ni Mungu. Let’s hope we will see him again in the music industry.
Nani Anatosa??? Here Are 5 Reasons Why Timmy Tdat’s Dela And Kush Tracey Are Like Kerosene And Water
This one hit wonder lass was recognised due to her song Toklezea which was the talk of town way back. Well, since then not much has been heard about her career. The once upon a time hitmaker is wife to Kenya’s top music director J Blessing and is rumoured to be set for a great comeback this year. Make it quick girl, fans move on!
This band of 4 was introduced to the music game by the celebrated Matapeli hitmaker Jaguar. Together, they released a hit dubbed Take It Slow which ran the radio airwaves for a while.Well, Morris Bianju, Evans Macharia, Moses Otieno and Kelvin Kamande, the band makers are nowhere to be found. Why are you guys?
The Faham maker has gone silent since rumour had it that he and singer Bahati became rivals after Weezdom left EMB records owned by the Mama hitmaker. After several scandals including rumours of impregnating a girl, Weezdom went silent after denying the claims. Woiyee, take heart and come back!
We all remember the famous Binti Kiziwi song which was East Africa’s hit before Ali Kiba and Diamond were well known. Well, the Tanzanian bongo star has since gone silent after he released a couple of Taarab songs which never saw the limelight.
We know almost everything about Mr Eazi thanks to Wikipedia.
But, there are somethings you just don’t know because Wiki doesn’t either. We were able to dig out five things you probably didn’t know about him.
1. He concluded his MSc in Coventry University back in 2015.
“On the Journey from #AccraToLagos Daddy didn’t want his 1st son to Gamble too Much! He wanted to ensure I had fall backs! Daddy paid for my #MSC #CoventryUni I was hardly in class tho! Was busy somewhere in Ghana doing Galamsey & distributing Lacasera! 11th Feb!“
2. He engaged in small-scale gold trading before stardom
“AccraToLagos took me to the Hinterlands of the Ashanti Region where I engaged in small scale Gold Trading with my “Galamsey” friends! Some weeks boys will easily turn over $30,000 It was a highly Profitable but Volatile Experience!! I would later Write an MsC thesis on this experience! I caught some of the best Vibez! And this was where the famous “Straw Hat” signature Began!!“
3. His first ever radio interview was in the UK 2013
“My 1st Ever Radio Interview was from a Uk radio station back in 2013 after “About to blow” I was in Kumasi, Bantama, Aimee’s room when @selectamaestro & @dboycitylove called from London!! This show has been at the roots of my growth!! These two guys spotted me, & kept on pushing me to do music professionally!“
4. His first London video was shot in March 2016
5. Phyno is one of his biggest motivators
” @phynofino you keep motivating me to do more! God Bless.“
Anerlisa Muigai is admired public figure. How so? Well, she burst into the limelight just a few years ago, but many did not know much about her as she was building her empire.
Being the owner and founder of your own brand is an achievement and today Anerlisa can comfortably eat the fruits of her labor after building an empire, Nero Company; the company behind a high-end drinking water.
Last year she was on a journey to lose weight and she has made tremendous changes in her life. She looks lovelier than ever after losing 58kgs in a year. That’s an amazing achievement if you ask me.
Her family and friends have been supportive but she has faced her own fair share of struggles in that journey.
Anerlisa recently turned 29 but she doesn’t look a day over 25.
As a hardworking woman, she has found it in herself to do something that will benefit a number of people.
She is now looking to employ young people who can hack a sales job. Taking to social media, she wrote;
“Afternoon. Recently I just found out how hard it has been for our young people to get jobs. So today I would like to give opportunity to the young generation who believe they could do sales job.”
Hawa watawahi pendana kweli? Seems like Timmy Tdat’s female celebrity crush could get him into trouble. Just after photos of him and singer Dela went viral, fans have been comparing Timmy Tdat’s ex, Kush Tracey, and singer Dela.
Well, is quite obvious that Dela and Tracey are two very different people who probably only have King Timmy in common. Here’s why;
Both Are Linked To Rapper Timmy Tdat In Different Ways
Kush Tracey is Timmy’s ex after they broke up caught fans by surprise. Their break up got even worse when Kush Tracey revealed that the rapper was not as good in bed as he appears. A few months later, Timmy was seen hanging out with in a manner that suggested the two were not just friends. Well, they are now rumoured to be dating…
Dela And Timmy Have Hidden Agendas
The little I can remember is that Kush Tracey was not ashamed of revealing her relationship with rapper, even kissing on national TV which saw their fans unite to support the ex-love birds. Later on, sad news had it that the two had broken up. Well, it seems that Dela is trying to make Timmy hide this rumoured romance even after several ‘romantic’ photos together emerged. Kwani anakaliwa?
Kush Tracey And Timmy Are Bonded By A Song
Kush and ex Timmy released a hit track Ndulu which was well received. This was the time when the two were head over heels in love. I guess Dela should use this opportunity to do a song with the celebrated rapper because you never know what will happen next. Love is a roller coaster girl!
Both Have Different Tastes
Kush Tracey is a rapper who is well identified with hip hop and is among Kenya’s top female femcees. The lass is known for her Ndulu and Dandia Kama Mat remix. Dela on the other hand is a singer known for slow and touching music. Her debut song Mafeelings opened way for Adabu, Nakuahidi and Hello a cover to Adelle’s song. What would a collabo of the two sound like?
‘Professionals’ In Different Fields
Si wamesoma! Apart from passing through the same man, Dela and Kush Tracey are well educated. Kush is a student at Kenyatta University specializing in Theatre Arts while Dela holds a degree in Architecture. Question is, do they really practise what they’ve learnt? Let’s hope so.
Here are photos of each with rapper Timmy Tdat;
He has never been shy when it comes to partaking in controversial artistic pursuits.
Andat tim Shia LeBouf seemed to be having a gree mingling with fans as he kicked off his anti-Donald Trump He Will Not Divide Us project in New York on Sunday.
The 30-year-old certainly proved to have drawing power, as not only was a large number of excited followers on hand, but star Jaden Smith was also in attendance at the event outside the Museum of Moving Pictures in Queens.
The Transformers star was mobbed by excited attendees for the grand launch, and he was even happy to take selfies with lucky punters.
He wore an appropriately arty ensemble to the event, wearing a denim jacket, plaid shirt, beanie hat and gloves, with the right hand of the latterly tantalisingly missing two fingers, in what was surely a deep yet mysterious statement.
Will Smith’s son 18-year-old son Jaden, who recently complained about being a failure and about the lack of opportunities he has creatively, was the other star attraction.
Later Shia promoted his art installation by sharing an image on Twitter showing his chum staring at the wall.
According to the website explaining his latest endevour, members of the public will be able to stand in front of his wall outside the gallery and say the words ‘He will not divide us’ into a camera mounted as many times as they wish.
The project is to allow people to protest Donald Trump becoming the 45th President of the United States, as well as his future policy decisions.
As if that was not enough, the wall will be open all day every day for the length of the property mogul’s presidency.
Adding even more excitement to the heady mix, the project will be stream live onto the internet for as long as it is open.
Kwani hii ni celebrity family! Just after celebrated singer, Bahati made his girlfriend Diana Marua famous over his Mpenzi video, her sister is now on it.
Diana Marua’s sister is as sexy and hot as she is, and did I mention the light skin gene that runs in the family? Maybe that’s the reason the gospel artist was attracted to her? The lass who seems to be Bahati’s make up artist was recently identified after she made a debut in a local TV station.
The video vixen’s sister was behind Bahati’s makeup during the shoot of his Moyo Wangu video which he featured Jemimah Thiong’o and Imust say she made him look gorgeous.
The lass who is rumoured to be married to rapper Ian Wills also known as Omusakhulu is a mother of two beautiful twins.
Diana Marua and singer Bahati went silent on the allegations that the two are an item. It is quite evident that the two have been seeing each other even after she and singer denied the allegations on national TV. Was this just stage managed or were they starting their relationship goals?
Kenya is about to elect its new leaders in a few months time and everywhere you go, there are campaigns going own as aspirants ‘preach to their congregation’ of what they would do for the community if they were elected. Jaguar has found himself in a rather weird situation as an idle human made a poster that suggested Jaguar was vying for the Starehe MP seat.
Some public figures like Steve Mbogo and Boniface Mwangi have joined the wagon and are vying for the Starehe MP seat.
The poster has been circulating and its raising questions if at all the poster is genuine or fake.
Jaguar is definitely not happy after he was called to give his sentiments on the whole issue.
He said, “I am not the one who made those posters. Please do not put them up. I am a director. Do not include me in political issues.”
He has made it very clear that he is not vying for any seat and he is strictly a director. And in case you didn’t know, he is the director of National Authority for the Campaign Against Alcohol and Drug Abuse (NACADA).
Akothee also found herself in the same situation after a poster went viral claiming that she was vying for the women’s rep seat of Migori County. Aki watu wakona mchezo!
Kumewaka moto aki! Idris Sultan is making a fail yet AGAIN in the comedy industry! The Big Brother winner got into a social media fight with fans after posting what is said to be a distasteful joke.
Idris Sultan, who has on several occasions tried to be a comedian by making small jokes faced the wrath of fans after he posted a cover to Darassa’s song Muziki. This is a well loved by the bongo fans. Idris went ahead to say that the song was the national anthem after which fans went ham on him.
The song Muziki which has now over 3 million views on Youtube is a spectacular and was received well widely. I guess fans think Big Brother winner Idris did not give justice to the song after his jokes on the song was a terrible fail. Stick to reality Tv brah!
This is not the first time Idris has made a joke that was an epic fail, mid last year, the to die for hunk celebrity was booed off stage for ‘being a bore’.
In recent times, Idris has been using his jokes to diss his ex Wema Sepetu and after Wema left social media, it seems like he has no content to give his fans. It is true that making a human being laugh is quite a rough job, but hey, this is an expert’s job Idris, maybe you can get something more engaging to do.
Let’s see If Idris is going to say bye to comedy anytime soon. This is Big Brother winner’s comic fail;
Here are some fan’s reaction;
syless444; Kweli pesa za big brother huna tena zimekwisha
coy_mzunguIla; ndugu yangu wewe sio bure you must be having something wrong in you! @idrissultan
havabetty; Hivi we Idris kwenu ni wangap kuzaliwa…ucje kua na mdogo akafata huo mkondo…..my God mbna ni shidaaa😂😂😂😂 kweli akili zko mwingine acngeweza

Peter Chuani, popularly known as DJ Pinye, is one of the most celebrated DJ’s in the country. He was in an era when being a DJ was the ultimate goal and it was a career that not many would take lightly unlike this new era where everyone is a DJ including your next door neighbour.
He has always been a favourite and many can remember him when he featured as the DJ of the popular music show ‘The Beat‘ that airs on NTV.
Well, the veteran disc jockey is now a year older and he is proud of how far he has come. He just turned 46, but he doesn’t look a year over 30. Aging gracefully you might say? That could be it or perhaps good genes. But he has shared his secret to looking young and fit at this age.
““Pinye huzeeki! ” “Pinye unado nini??” If i could get a shilling for every time someone has asked me that over the years, i would be a millionaire by now. To kill all the birds with one stone, i have decided to share my lifestyle during this week for those curious minds.”
He went ahead to give full details of his routine.
“Swimming everyday is a huge part of my lifestyle. Years back i got a bad injury while running, a friend advised me to take up swimming. I went for swimming lessons and now i can easily do all strokes.”
He has told his friends a number of times that he swims at 5am but they seem to not believe him. Apart from swimming, he has to maintain a good diet to go with it.
“Swimming is only 20% , 80% is what i eat. There is no exercise that will do what eating healthy does.”
If you are looking to living a healthy lifestyles so as to age gracefully, well DJ Pinye has given you a few pointers and what works for him. It might not work for you but at least it did for him. Do your math right.
2017 seems to be a year of change or rather a year of going for what one wants. Socialite Risper Faith has definitely joined the wagon. As you may recall a previous story, there was speculation that she was engaged.
Well, she is now officially OFF the market after her long time boyfriend liked it so much, he put a ring on it.
Just like any ordinary human, she couldn’t keep the news to herself as she went ahead to share the news on social media. She posted a photo with a rock on her finger with the caption, “He proposed and I said yesssss am engaged.”
Her fans went ahead to congratulate her as team mafisi drowned in sorrow upon realizing that she is no longer part of the single’s club.
But the engagement news is quite confusing. Brian has been known to have flirted with another lady, Mishi Dorah who is a cast member of the reality show ‘Nairobi Diaries’.
A while back both Risper and Brian had a really ugly fight after he came home with a bag of condoms. He apparently couldn’t really give Risper a good explanation on why he had so many condoms. The fight was nasty and Risper had to pack her things and leave.
But it seems the two have put the past behind them and are now ready to start their wedding plans.

Madonna has spoken out against President Donald Trump saying she thought about blowing up the White House.
The singer was amongst thousands of women who joined together to protest the 45th President of the United States.
Speaking at the Women’s March in Washington DC, she said: “Good didn’t win this election, but good will win in the end.
“So what today means is that we are far from the end. Today marks the beginning of our story.
“The revolution starts here. The fight for the right to be free, to be who we are, to be equal.
“Let’s march together through this darkness and with each step know that we are not afraid, that we are not alone, that we will not back down.”
The star continued: “And to our detractors that insist that this march will never add up to anything, f*** you!
“Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.”
Madonna went on to perform a song, called Express Yourself, which included the lyrics: “Donald Trump, suck a d**k.”
She joined women around the globe who were marching against Trump.
In London, thousands of people descended on Grosvenor Square to march up to Trafalgar Square and stand against Trump.
Demonstrations are also taking place in Belfast, Cardiff, Lancaster, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Shipley and Edinburgh.
And in Washington DC, tens of thousands more are expected to turn out to stand up for gender equality, healthcare for women and other issues thought to be threatened under Trump’s presidency.
Among the famous faces joining the protests are singer Cher, Harry Potter star Emma Watson and The Avengers actress Scarlett Johansson .
So Shaffie has promised that he will shave off his famous beard if, and only if, IEBC registers 4.5 million voters.
The Kiss FM breakfast show co-host and radio’s bad boy would like the youth to exercise their right to vote and chose leaders that represent they needs and interests. The voter registration concludes on Valentine’s day.
Shaffie exclusively told Kiss FM Online, “It is cool to be part of a squad and also it is even greater to stand for something and shape the destiny of this nation. And the young peeps know that, so yeah, ma-Yoot will definitely vote.”
As the king of #BeardGang, Shaffie promises that he will have to quit the throne if IEBC registers 4.5 million new voters.
For Shaffie, it will be a very sad affair as “it has been five strong years of having this beard. It is a part of me now.. Actually, it is the longest relationship I have ever had.”
Here are 5 other very influential celebrities who should join Shaffie in this noble quest and shave their facial hair. Lets break the cycle of complacency and go out there and vote in worthy leaders.
1. Blinky Bill – Ted Fellow – Just A Band Vocalist, songwriter
We will be sad to see his beard go, but for the sake of getting the youth to register and exercise their civic duty, I’m sure Blink wouldn’t mind. Would he?
2. Nick Mutuma -Actor
Nick can be team #BeardGang or not and still maintain his boyish charm. Feel free to join Shaffie in shaving if IEBC registration clocks the 4.5 million mark.
3. Mark Masai – News Anchor
Baby faced TV news anchor, Mark Masai is known for his well coiffed – if I can put it that way – facial hair. If Mark joins Shaffie, his adoring female fans will have a chance to see him clean shaven in all his glory under the studio lights. Slow sigh!
4. Willis Chimano -Sauti Sol member
Mr. Deep Voice is loved by many. His charisma shines through his lyrics and how he carries himself. If Chimano was to join Shaffie in his voter registration drive, the ladies would still love him, beard or no beard.
5. Kevin Owiti – Mr World Kenya 2016
Swag. Smile. Pose. Lights. Camera. Action.
That is the job and life of the reigning Mr World Kenya. Kevin Owiti can hide his looks behind a beard and still look as formidable as ever. He can also shave it off and still maintain his boyish charm. So joining Shaffie in the ‘Shave challenge’ would be as easy as sunday morning.
Elani seem to always be deliberate when they are releasing any new material. They always think out their brand, message, and overall goals of every project they release. Continue reading “10 Reasons Why We All Fell In Love With Elani’s New Look”
We finally got you! In the beginning of this year, East Africa’s best dressed celebrity Wema Sepetu got off social media and is no longer getting in touch with her fans. The 2006 Miss Tanzania has faced tough times since she was crowned, after getting embroiled in a series of scandals.
We finally found out the reasons why this beauty queen got off social media and as always we got you covered. Let’s unfold this mystery!
She Is Avoiding Beef
She and Diamond Platnumz’s current wife Zari Hassan have had beef for the longest time now. It is said that the beef emerged after the Utanipenda hit maker got married to this Ugandan-South African based socialite few months after the break up with Sepetu. Since then, rival groups have been formed with each supporting their best celebrity. Did I mention Diamond keeps referring to Sepetu in almost 5 songs of his?
She Is Fed Up By Celebrity Life
Sepetu has found out that a private life serves best after several scandals got her in trouble with fans. Just before she got out of social media, Sepetu was on the receiving end of criticism over almost everything she posted on social media. She has since then gone silent after deleting all her posts.
She Has Found New Love
Rumour has it that the ever scandalous Sepetu has found a new bae after several failed relationship attempts. She has had a chain of boyfriends among them Diamond Platnumz, bongo movie star the late Steven kanumba, Baadae hitmaker Ommy Dimpoz not forgetting Big Brother winner Idris Sulta. A sex tape showing her making out with a Tanzanian model identified as Calisah went viral, one thing that led to her going on a hiatus.
She Might Have Relocated To Nairobi
By the end of last year, Sepetu indicated she was considering relocating to Nairobi. The beauty queen posted that in her social media page late December before she jetted in for a show in one of the biggest clubs in town. Maybe she didn’t want her Tanzanian fans to find out!
It Is Her New Year’s Resolution
When the new year knocked, Wema opened it up by going silent and deleting her posts. Maybe this new resolution tactic would work for Wema who is always fighting with fans in her pages. We wish you all the best as you start a new life!
