Who Are Her Friends? You Will CRY When You See Femi One’s Makeup Fail

Femi One is one of the celebrities that cannot be recognised without makeup. She doesn’t look like the cutie we are used to seeing at events, in her music videos and during live TV interviews. We have proof enough that publicity seeker and rapper Femi One cannot do without make-up!

You think we are joking?We have proof enough that publicity seeker and rapper Femi One cannot do without

We have proof that the publicity seeker and rapper Femi One cannot do without makeup!

CHAIIIIIII!!!!

Femi One has been in the music industry for a second, and in this little time, she has managed to grasp the rap industry with her Pilau Njeri hit song.

The video went viral as she received several responses which got some femcees throwing shade at the Tippy Toe hit maker. She has received a lot of attention…And yes, her mission to publicize herself seems to bear good fruits.

femi one 6

I happen to notice that Femi One has changed a lot when it comes to fashion and style. I give her a thumps up. But there is something that is a miss.

Femi One seems to be depending on make-up (Just like most girls do) but it seems her make up artiste is not doing justice to her face. Let me just say on this particular day, her makeup artiste was late and she decided “kuchukua sheria mikononi” and went on to do the makeup. We are assuming that is what happened.

She is one beautiful artiste…But with make-up. Here is evidence that you could confuse her for an angel straight from the pearly gates.

femi-one

But then here is another proof that she does not know how to do make-up. Something that will even make you feel like crying if you ever see her without any.

Speaking to Word Is, Kenrazy explained why they preferred to keep the pregnancy a secret, a move that they did even for their firstborn daughter.

“Our dream has always been to have two kids, and Sosuun’s career started picking up and growing fast. So we talked about the second baby and decided to have her at this time, considering our firstborn is already six years old and needed a sibling. Plus Sosuun needed to also get back to making music. The day we put up her pregnancy photos on social media was the day she delivered,” Kenrazy said.

“We didn’t want to make the news public because we didn’t want people talking about the pregnancy before the baby arrived, considering the public comes with so much pressure, which is something we didn’t want Sosuun to go through.”

 

Khaligraph Jones Has Exquisite Taste! Check Out The Inside Of His Expensively Furnished Home

Khaligraph Jones is one of the most inspiring stories within Kenya’s entertainment scene. The Kayole bred MC is the literal definition of rags to riches and he owes it all to his work ethic -unlike many who owe their rise to industry politics.

khaligraph

And the pervasive nature of industry politics actually cuts across the secular and gospel divide. The reason why we have so many artists and their music going untapped and unrecognized is because of said politics.

Politics which can be blamed for the rise of so many garbage artists who know the right people or have the money to push radio presenters into playing their jams. And let’s not even get to the DJs.

Khaligraph Jones Finally Shows Off His New Office And Studio (Photos)

But Khaligraph Jones managed to navigate these treacherous waters by not taking part in the shenanigans. He went the mixtape route and by that I mean, he put out so much quality music and got people out on the streets listening to him long before the entertainment industry and media took notice of him.

Khaligraph

What this resulted in was a demand for his music and he was even able to attract endorsement deals with fairly little radioplay and a huge and rabidly loyal fanbase that buys tickets when he has performances.

As a result, he is living large. His cars and even his home are proof of this fact. Check out the inside of his digs below:

Issa Possibility: Rihanna And Lupita Nyong’o Might Shoot A Movie After Twitter Went Crazy

A photo of Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o has sparked a film idea on Twitter and they have both taken to the social media site to say they are up for it.

_95767392_rhiannalupito_gettyimages-476790227

The 2014 fashion show photo was shared by fans with the comment: “Rihanna looks like she scams rich white men and Lupita is the computer smart best friend that helps plan the scams.”

It caught the attention of Oscar winner Nyong’o a few days ago, and now Rihanna has tweeted she is up for it, too.

Fans have gone crazy for the idea.

_95767394_tweet

Lupita saw the tweet a few days ago and posted “I’m down if you are @Rihanna”.

More than 200,000 liked the tweet and earlier today Rihanna replied saying “I’m in Pit’z” – her nickname for the Star Wars actress.

Another 99,000 liked that tweet and now the two stars had said yes, Twitter went into a meltdown with ideas about the film.

_95769729_tweet2

One fan then tweeted it over to Selma director Ava Duvernay, saying she should direct it, and Duvernay loved the idea.

“Lights set. Camera’s up. Ready to call action for these #queens,” she tweeted back.

_95769731_tweet3

It seems Rihanna didn’t want to let go of the idea, as she retweeted a fan’s idea to get Issa Rae, the creator and executive producer of Insecure, on board.

Rae then replied with a Gif of a cat manically typing, which made Rihanna blush.

_95769736_tweet6

The idea of a movie based on the photo had been around on Tumblr when the photo was first published, but now that the main players have got involved, it looks like Twitter may have cast and created a movie.

But with so many fan ideas contributed, who takes credit for the concept and gets a cut of the profits?

_95769733_tweet4

Most of the fans on Twitter, though, are just desperate to see it happen.

Oh Em Gee!!! Video Vixen Poses NAKED At Comedian Kajairo’s New Jam (VIDEO)

Kenyans will forever remember Colonel Mustapha’s jam Dodoma Singida and Blaqy’s Money Maker as some of the songs that were ratchet for days. But guess what? We now have another ratchet video…And yes its by non other than Kajairo.

The comic character is well known for his parody videos but it seems this time round, Kajairo is making new steps. Peter Kaimenyi, his real name, sat down with this writer and revealed that he has now started making his own original videos.

kajiro

Kajairo, a proud father of one is out with a new Jam dubbed Mrrdah. I was also surprised as you are. The hilarious comedian cum radio personality says the song is dedicated to all Kenyan ladies….But there’s something wrong.

Remember the song by Jamaica’s RDX Bend Over? This is worse. A video vixen in Kajairo’s song poses with her nipples naked next to the comedian and the twerking that follows is unbelievable.

Due to the kind of the scene it brings, I cannot screenshot it for you but let you see it for yourself.

PS: Look closely

Here is Kajairo’s new work Mrrdah:
