Working with different production companies and in different countries, Nick has learnt quite a lot in regards to production regionally visa vis how we do things locally.
In an exclusive interview with Kiss FM, Nick challenged film makers to shoot a lot of content and put it out there for everyone to see.
He said, “Here’s the thing. Kenya we have everything that we need. We have stories, talent and technical skills. What I feel is lacking is the finance, but we live in an age where it’s become easier to produce content because things like cameras which were hella expensive are now affordable. I would like to challenge film makers to just shoot and put content out there. We have the perfect medium now, Youtube, where you are not charged and if you market your content right, you can even make money out of it.”
Ayomide Labinjo, the alleged babymama of pop singer, Davido has revealed that the Sony Music artiste refused to wear a condom the first time they were intimate.
The lady who met the singer at a club claimed that music star showed an intense urge to get laid when they met.
“The reason I slept with him the first time we met was because I just wanted to catch my fun. The day we met at the club, Ebevande, I was with my friends, I did not really know him then but I just knew he was an artiste.
“I went out with my female friends; we had like a ladies night out; then one of his bouncers came to meet me and told me that his boss wanted to see me.
“I actually thought it was the owner of the club that wanted to see me. When I got to where they were, I noticed that it was David and he was with B. Red. I greeted both of them, B. Red did not respond but David did and we talked.
“He collected my pin and asked me to return to my seat. When they were about to leave, the bouncer came to meet me again and informed me that they wanted to leave.
“My friends thought we were all going together but when we all got to the car, he asked my friends to go back. He said that I was the one he wanted to see.
“We went to the Genesis Hotel. When we got to the room, we talked for a long while before we had s3x. He is a very jovial person and he loves talking.
“He made me laugh a lot and we talked at length. B. Red was in the other room. I insisted that he should protect himself by wearing a condom but he refused. He said that he does HIV test every two weeks.
“Then I asked him how sure he was that I did not have any disease but he said he was very sure I did not have a disease. After he had said all that, I told him to just do what he wanted to do and allow me go home in the morning.
“That night, we did it twice. You would know he was in the mood that night and it lasted for a while. He has a big manhood and it hurt me a little.
She also refuted Davido’s claim that he gave her money, boldly asking the singer in her interview with Punch News to provide evidence of such payment.
Victoria Kimani is one of the most succesful female artiste in the country. She has proven that lasses can be mega superstars in the music industry and even do better than guys. Her music career has grown tremendously over the years.
Late last year, she launched her first album dubbed ‘Safari’. She had been working on the album for a while and finally it’s out.
Apart from being an exceptional artiste, Victoria is also a fashionista. Her mode of dressing is quite unique and daring. Some people say she gets her inspiration from American female rapper Nicki Minaj, maybe in terms of make up and colourful weaves/wigs.
Victoria is among the most secretive celebrities in the country. She never parades everything on social media or announces it to the world. It took her a long time to even show off her boyfriend to the public.
Well, she has now introduced her mother to the public and I must say she gets her beautiful looks from her mother.
Yesterday was Mother’s day and she took it upon herself to jot down a beautiful message to her mother which read, “Happy Mother’s Day Mommy!! She is so cute and so Blessed 👑😍🌺 I’m thankful for a praying Mother. Also, she has been a mother to many who are not biologically her own, so I also celebrate all Mother Figures, Spiritual Mothers, and Women who have taken in Children who are not their own ❤.”
Kenyan songbird Mayonde recently dropped a banging hit dubbed ‘Nairobi’ featuring Stonee Jiwe. The song is by far one of the most outstanding and well thought out songs in 2017.
Her love for Nairobi made her jot down some lyrics to appreciate the city which holds so much potential. Stonee added some sauce in it with his brilliant rapping skills. I mean, this song should definitely be a Nairobi anthem.
Musicians always look forward to getting positive response from their fans after they release a song. But sometimes the response is not what you expect. For those who have received positive reviews can clearly agree that it’s the most amazing feeling ever.
Mayonde is among those who are smiling all the way to the studio to drop another dope hit after the positive response she’s received after the release of ‘Nairobi’.
In an exclusive interview with Kiss FM she said, “People have been relating to it, considering hoods have been mentioned in the song and many feel like they are part of it. Even people that I really admire are sharing it and it’s feels good and it’s validating. It’s been doing so well, actually better than any song that I have released personally as Mayonde. It’s a pretty exciting.”

Well as we all know, Kenyans never let things go quite that easily.

The matter is still being handled by the police and the story keeps developing as time goes by.

#ArrestJaguar blocking justice especially for a murder case is equivalent to committing the crime.
Victoria Kimani is a celebrated Kenyan female artiste who has gone beyond her means to prove that she is a talented artiste. She has released a number of songs the most recent being her first album, Safari.
She is signed to a Nigerian record label dubbed Chocolate City, but recently announced that she was leaving the label after her latest project.
Victoria has come out to address a pressing issue in regards to Kenyan artistes not been given credit for the work they do or better yet not being acknowledged.
She took to social media to rant about about how other countries, cities and towns put their artistes above our very own.
She wrote, “Riding around Nairobi, seeing billboards on top of billboards of these shows, why are none of us headlining? Why does it have to be this way… year after year after year…. we constantly place every other country, city, town above our own, Not every artist has the opportunities That A few of us have to leave Kenya and be seen on stages with that wide Africa reach, what the hell would I do if I didn’t have those opportunities,,,, I’d sit here and either throw my own concert (coming soon) …. or wait to be some so called’ opening act for less than ksh200K … while we watch them make $50,000 – $100,000 right in our face!”
She continued, “Why can’t we learn from Tanzania, Uganda, Nigeria, South Africa and many more and be as excited to see ourselves as we are others?! And then get mad and wanna call me Nigerian because I am blessed to be booked there from time to time…: wow guys…. This self hate we got has to change pretty soon or we will keep loosing gems like Lupita who many of you literally chased away, then get mad if she acts brand new on you when she’s back home 😂 mannn all I’m saying is book us now before you can no longer afford us. Brands too…. use your local faces ! GIVE THE YOUTH A CHANCE…. don’t chase our Artistic dreams away!!…. you guys are sleeping on PICASSO AND MOZART ARE YOU STUPID!? So I and many others don’t have to keep leaving our HOME to make a normal living as an artist ❤.”

Most Kenyan celebrities have this kinda lifestyle that they parade on social media for the world to see. Many a times, it’s not what it seems because some of them believe that they have to portray a certain kind of image to the public so as to be accepted. Can we call it the societal pressure?
Anita Nderu is one of the most admired media personalities in the country. Many call her the snapchat queen as she always shares with her followers right about anything that she does. Be it her birthday or landing a mega deal, be sure to know about it from the horses mouth.
Mavin record boss, Don Jazzy, has revealed that it was not all about making money when he started his musical career. He made the revelation during a chat with Big Brother Naija housemates when he paid a surprise courtesy visit to the Big Brother house.
Responding to questions from housemates, the seasoned music producer said that he was never money conscious because all he wanted to do was make music. He stressed that he was never bothered even when he wasn’t paid after doing gigs and shows.
“My journey has been crazy. Since I started my musical career, I’ve not been in any situation that I felt like I wasn’t successful; even as I was in the church playing for my church elders, I felt I was Michael Jackson doing my thing. I was comfortable doing it, I did not even know whether I would get money. When I was doing Juju music in London, it was the same thing, if you give me money today, fine, the day if you don’t give me, no problem”, he said.
He went further to say that D’banj’s parents were primarily responsible for financing the establishment of Mo-hits records, a record label he co-owned with D’banj.
“Until Mo-Hits time, when we started the company business, we were like this thing is attracting a lot of people from across Africa and the world, so we have to try and grow it into an empire. D’banj and I sat down and agreed that now that we’re going to be putting out songs, we need to have a record label, but then we did not have money. D’banj is from a wealthy family, his parents put in some money, they gave us money to shoot our first video. I then decided that since we’re partners we’re going to share the profit 50/50. As soon as we made the money we went back to appreciate his mother for the help rendered to us at the beginning,” he revealed.
Yesterday, the day came to an end with a developing story that Jaguar’s car had been involved in an accident.
But away from that, eyewitness reports have it that a woman was actually the driver of the car that was involved in an accident -even though the car is Jaguar’s car was involved, he wasn’t driving it at the time.
That the raises the question of why Jaguar is taking responsibility for the accident. Because if indeed it is proved that he wasn’t the one driving the Range Rover when it got involved in the accident then he can be charged with obstruction of justice. But I am not a lawyer, I write gossip for a living.
We have however come up with 5 plausible reasons why Jaguar is taking responsibility for the accident. Check them out and let us know what you think:
a) He feels untouchable given his proximity to the Presidency
It could be that jaguar knows that because he and the president are close friends, he is “untouchable”. He might feel safe from pervasive investigations because he can call on his friend should the heat become too hot to handle.
b) He feels he will get leniency because he is a big star
Perhaps Jaguar feels confident in the knowledge that he is a big star so he can get a pass because the eye-witnesses will go slow on him or recant his testimony.
c) The driver was under the influence
Perhaps he was worried the driver was under the influence. Or he suspected so and he wanted people to focus on him and his antics rather than him.
d) the driver didn’t have a driving license
Perhaps the driver didn’t have a valid driving license
e) He doesn’t want his relationship with the woman exposed
Perhaps Jaguar doesn’t want a spotlight shone on his relationship with this woman and so he is trying to obscure any relationship he has with the lass. Perhaps it is a business relationship or perhaps it is a more intimate relationship. Who knows.
Celebrated local singer Charles Kanyi Njagua popularly known Jaguar is an unlucky man. Recently, a man was killed by mob justice at his rally in Ziwani area after he allegedly stole from someone. Jaguar came out to deny that the late was killed at his rally and barely a week, the Kigeugeu hitmaker had grabbed the headlines once again.
A day ago, Jaguar’s Range Rover sports, KCB 808J hit two motorists Joseph Maingi and Mugo Abdalla who died on the spot along the Makutano – Sagana highway.
According to witnesses, the accident happened at 3:00 pm causing a snarl up. The Range Rover registered under Jaguar’s name was being driven by a lady and according to witnesses, he was from Sagana heading to Makutano while the two were who were riding on a motorbike were headed to Sagana. They were almost joining the highway when the car hit them. The two young men fell on one side of the while the motorbike they were using was thrown on the opposite side.
Sources claim that Jaguar, the owner of the car arrived at around 3.30pm on the same day (he stays in Athi River) and told onlookers at the accident scene that he was the one driving the vehicle, even though the eyewitnesses saw clearly that it was lady who was driving the car. The car was towed away and the lady plus Jaguar left for Sagana police station. But witnesses claim that later on, the story changed completely.
According to witnesses, parents to Mugo went to Sagana police station but they were denied the chance to see the vehicle that took away the life of their son and were told to be accompanied by the eye witnesses and this has raised eyebrows.
We tried to contact Jaguar for a comment but our calls went unanswered. He later addressed the issue on his social media pages and here is what he wrote;
“It is with grief that I share this post today. As it is now public, I was involved in a car accident. Sadly, lives were lost in the incident.
It isn’t any ones will to wake up and be involved in an accident such as this.
My heart felt condolences to the families and friends of those affected. I would like to assure all concerned that due process of the law is being followed to amicably resolve this.
I pray God grant strength to the families affected as we all go through this trying moment. Lastly, lets avoid confrontational remarks in consideration to the pain it is causing the bereaved families. Be well.”
But who is this lady who was behind the steering wheel?
Well, Kenyans want justice for the late two young men’s families and they have taken it to Twitter to asking the police to arrest Jaguar under hashtag #ArrestJaguar and here are some of the top tweets.
Diamond Platnumz’s wife Zari Hassan and his rumoured side chic Hamisa Mobetto have never seen eye to eye… I mean NEVER!
Just the other day, Zari got earings that resembled those of Hamisa Mobetto in their matrimonial home. Evidence enough that Diamond was cheating… but with who? Well, Hamisa Mobetto the video vixen to Diamond Platnumz’s hit Salome was behind all these. It is good to note that all this time Zari, was in South Africa nursing her pregnancy wounds.
She would then come home and find the unbelievable…she then went ahead to write;
“Watu na Bae zetu… nyaku nyakus can’t even post their own. Told you, if he can’t claim you in public, don’t give him the good good in private. U know what that means right & I bet u know where that leaves you ?????. Tag your bae and wish him or her a good night.”
Surprisingly, Hamisa, a model cum socialite was recently spotted rocking pants that resemble the Utanipenda hit maker’s. And yes, clothes do look alike but hey… this is no coincidence.
Zari, angrily posted;
“Afuge dread, avai na boxers apige picha sehemu zote in madale to have her point seen…the thirst is real, that awkward moment when you desperately try hard. These ain’t loyal nawaooo”
After the photo went viral Hamisa went ahead to write a message that seemed to be directed to Zari;
“I am well aware I’m not Everyone’s cup of Tea ……….I’d rather be someone’s shots of tequila anyway !!!☕️????”
