Kambua Manundu is a beautiful gospel singer and TV host of Bambika. She is among the few respected female gospel artiste who has not had any controversies or drama. Her music career has been successfully growing top a point she has been releasing one hit song after another.
Unlike many gospel musicians this lady’s music has proper content to a point you wont be able to question if she is saved or not. This year she has been releasing songs about things that are so dear to her heart.
Apart from music, Kambua is also known to be all about women and girls. She has recently been working on a project with AMREF Health Africa to help create awareness of what is happening to Samburu girls.
Here some of the photos;
FGM and early marriages seems like a myth or something that doesn’t happen anymore or rather has stopped but apparently it is still practiced. In her new song she addresses the issue and have young girls express how they want to be someone in the future. When the song starts there is like a candle lighting session and Kambua explained;
“This candle lighting ceremony happened in Wamba, Samburu County- a day before 350 girls graduated into womanhood. Culturally this rite of passage ends with the ‘Cut’, #FGM. But #AMREFHealthAfrica introduced the Alternative rites of passage, #ARP, where the elders and community at large instead bless the girls to continue on with their education, free of the cut and early marriage. The candles signify kindling the light of education. Now ain’t that something!”
She was more than excited to release the video since she is passionate about this change. She posted saying;
“#KAZANA video is out on YouTube *Link in bio*. Change doesn’t happen overnight, but if we all add our voices to things we believe in, then change is inevitable!”
Here is the video of the song;

Kennedy Ombima normally referred to as King Kaka or Sungura is a famous Kenyan rapper. He has dropped a new hot song Cheza Chini featuring the legendary group Necessary Noize (Wyre and Nazizi). It has come as quite a shocker for him to get this group to work with him. In an exclusive interview with Kiss FM he talked about the song;
“Haina deeper meaning, its just cheza chini. Its just a happy song the whole idea ni kujibamba tu. As much as we do all these songs we need to entertain our funs as well.”
His main plan was to work with Nazizi and Wyre because they are music legends. He just picked up his phone and asked them to get on board and they agreed.
“They are very humble people cooperative and am learning from them as well. I just called them and I told them I have this particular song in mind I would like you on board and they were like yeah lets do it.”
King Kaka is also not so sure if necessary noise is back. All he had to say was;
“I don’t know their plans maybe you can just call them and ask. But what I know is that they are working on a couple of materials together. Am glad to put them back on the map but they have been working even separately. It would be nice really to see Necessary Noize is back, I would be very happy.”
He shot the video in some random club in Buruburu. All he wanted to achieve in this video is simplicity at its best because the song is for the common mwananchi.
“I am a simple guy. I wanted simple people.The song is for the kawaida ordinary Kenyan who go to ordinary clubs.”
King Kaka was not ready to reveal about the projects he is working on yet. He said;
“Brace yourself..I may not say much but brace yourself.”
Nicah the queen is a female gospel artiste and a mother of two. She has recently dropped a new track called Naringa. Despite the many controversies and drama, she has pulled through and survived the storm. She confessed that she is human and she has had to deal with a lot of emotions. In an exclusive interview with Kiss 100, she opened and talked about how her separation with Dr. Ofweneke was such a painful process.
“I am human I fall in love and out of love when I fall down I will get hurt. During the break up I was hurt and I cried. It wasn’t working for me and I wasn’t happy. I had every right to move on, I need happiness and peace. Holding on causes more pain than letting go”
When asked if she has ever received any freaky or crazy things in her dm. She explained that as much as she is beautiful she has never received anything freaky.
“I think people who view your page and see how you are dressed and what you post thats when they can start dming you crazy stuff. When all your quoting is the bible, encouragement stuff and posting decent photos I don’t think people will dm you those things. The only thing I get is like; you are very beautiful, some want to take me out for lunch but sijawai pata extreme things. If you pose naked you will get sexual attention.”
Nicah also talked about how people have always attacked her songs saying that they are encouragement songs not gospel. She acknowledges that she is not perfect and she sins like everyone else, she is just saved by grace. People just assume she doesn’t get hurt.

Anerlisa Muigai has been hiding her man from the public eye for a while now, claiming that she learnt her lesson and she chooses to keep him away from the public’s eye.
From the look of things, she’s not drinking what she’s preaching after all.
A video has surfaced of Anerlisa and her Mr Right, man whose name is Don Mbugua, in a car singing along to a love ballard, chuckling like high school sweethearts. In the video, Don is seen kissing Anerlisa’s cheek as he drives.
This comes days after Anerlisa clapped back at a lady, who commented on her photo revealing that Don is apparently married and has a kid.
Anerlisa went ahead to give her a piece of her mind, stating that no man is stolen and if at all he’s married, she should present the marriage certificate.
She said, “@joy_njokie Please remove this cheap crap from my page… you all been attacking me on chitchat and kilimani even when I was in my hospital bed. As I said if Don is married can she post their marriage certificate. (still waiting for it). And just to make it clear no man is stolen, he chooses to walk away and even if you have 1,2,3…10…50 kids before marriage doesn’t guarantee you of marriage #LetAGirlBreathe.”
Jua Cali and Wyre recently released a brand new song called ‘Vile Naskia’. So far, it has been well received by fans and as we all know, the two never disappoint when it comes to releasing hot jams.
Well, they are among the most celebrated artistes in 254.
In an interview with Kiss TV, Jua Cali opened up about how it was working with Wyre revealing that Wyre is an artiste he would gladly do an album with.
He said, “Ilikua easy and fun, yaani ukituona kwa studio we are just having fun. Si ata umeskia vibe ya hiyo song? So you can imagine how the recording was. Ilikua tu fun, easy, lyrics zilikua zinakam tu. Wyre ni artiste naeza make album na yeye anytime.”
When asked what it takes to survive in the music industry, considering he’s been in the industry for years, he said, “It takes a lot of sacrifice and you have to be humble and respect your job. Mtu kama mimi huingia studio kitu 8 ama 9, natoka 10 usiku, just coming up with concepts, record na pia kuomba Mungu ndio akusaidie kuandika ngoma unataka. You also have to have a thick skin especially sahi na social media coz mtu anaeza kaa kwa computer akutukane, so lazima ukue mtu strong mwenye aneza take the good and the bad.”
Vanessa Mdee is a famous Tanzanian singer. She is not only a celebrated and well recognized female artiste in Tanzania, but the whole of the East African region.
Her sensational voice is not the only thing that makes her unique, but her English and the quality of all her videos as well. Do we really need to talk about her looks? Her photos speak louder.
She has recently released a new song called Bounce featuring the amazing vocalists from Tanzania Maua Sama and Tommy Flava. The song samples Wayne Wonder’s Bounce Along.
If we start from the vocals, to the beats, to the simple yet amazing video, you will easily get addicted. Vanessa starts off by talking about how her man who apparently has another lady but he’s addicted to her since he is in her bed from Sunday to Monday, Monday to Sunday. Talking to the other lady, she tells her to bounce along since she doesn’t care what she says. In the chorus she sings;
David Mathenge aka Nameless, is a Kenyan artiste has released a new song called Oh Why. And just yesterday, his wife Wahu Kagwi also released a new song called Sifa.
One may wonder and ask several questions if they are saved or not? What is happening to these two famous secular singers who abruptly changed to gospel?
In their new songs, they have been quoting bible verses and constantly mentioning God.
When nameless released his song, he mentioned how David in the bible had so many questions about evil taking over. And he feels the same way where our country is concerned. And all these questions are in his new song. This is what he wrote;
I am named after David in the Bible, who asked God “ WHY DO YOU LET THE WICKED PROSPER WHILE YOUR PEOPLE SUFFER” . I too have questions that I find myself asking God…. And Im sure I’m not alone.
This song “OH WHY?” is a conversation with God in which I struggle to understand the negativity we see around us, and in human nature, don’t understand. It is also a call for all to reflect on how we may have contributed to the problems and circumstances we find ourselves in, both individually and as a society and to do better by each other and Kenya, for our children and our children’s children.
And somehow all this was also majority influenced by him being sick for almost a whole month, he said;
You may or may not know, but not too long ago, I went through an experience in which I almost lost my life. As I come out of that condition, all I can think about is how precious life is, and how we take for granted the gift of life. Life is precious, and should be protected and respected.
With so much happening in the country, Nameless felt the need to pray for Kenya;
God has blessed us with such a beautiful country, and our diversity and richness in culture should be celebrated, not used against us to cause division. We are going through hard times as a country. It is painful, confusing, discouraging, angering, disappointing and scary, regardless of whichever side of the political divide you support.
I can’t confidently say I know what the right thing to do is at this point, but I just ask God to spread His blessing across this beautiful country, and to give guidance to our leaders and the people Remember: DONT LET EVIL CONQUER US, CONQUER EVIL BY DOING GOOD (Romans 12:21) and it shall be well. God Bless my beautiful Kenya.
On the hand, Wahu released her new song and talked about how she has been going through a rough patch in fact a dark moment.
Life is full of ups and downs. As an artist, sometimes I take advantage of my various emotions for the sake of artistic expression. Riding an emotional wave” so to speak. Well, I wrote SIFA when I was going through a really low point in my life. I could have written a dark song that captured the essence of how I felt. I could have poured out my pain into an emotional song, which would have been perfectly ok, but I didn’t.
After so much contemplation she decided to write a song of praise instead.
Instead and to encourage myself, I turned to my Heavenly Father, asking Him for a way out of my darkness. As I turned to Him, I began to recall parts of scripture that I was taught early in my life. “In everything give thanks” (Thessalonians 5:18); “The thief comes to kill still and destroy, but Jesus came that we may have life in abundance” (John 10:10) and that there is power and victory in praise (Joshua 6) As hard as it was, I began to give God thanks and praise, just like David in the bible who lifted praise to God as a way of finding strength, comfort and peace as he went through trying times.
It seems like Wahu just got saved. Even from the way she interprets the scripture. It looks like she has really been watching the war room movie;
What I have personally found is the more I praise God, the lighter my heart becomes, and the more strength and joy I experience. In the song, I proclaim that my enemies are scattered. Just to clarify, the enemies I talk of are not human beings ☺. The bible says in Ephesians 6, that our battles are spiritual, not physical; As such, it only follows that our weapons should be spiritual, not physical. So there’s no physical person being “scattered”; but I have every confidence that my Father in all his might has scattered all spiritual forces that raise themselves against His will for my life, in Jesus name. The same is true for you, if only you believe. Please listen, enjoy and be uplifted. Remember the battle was won when Jesus died on the cross. Claim your victory and walk into your purpose in faith, putting God before all. Be blessed. One love.
Maroon 5 is an American pop rock boy band that originated in Los Angeles, California. It consists of lead vocalist Adam Levine, keyboardist and rhythm guitarist Jesse Carmichael, bassist Mickey Madden, lead guitarist James Valentine, drummer Matt Flynn, keyboardist PJ Morton and multi-instrumentalist Sam Farrar.
Maroon 5 has released a new song called Help me out featuring Julia Michaels who has been doing more than amazing in the music industry. She is a famous talented song writer and so far she has written popular hit songs for people like Demi Lovato and Fifth Harmony.
The song simply talks about a person who doesn’t want to be alone. Its a feeling almost most living, breathing humans have at some point in their lives.
“I don’t mean to bother you But there’s something that I want from you Distract me from thinking too much Loose ends all tied up with a touch
Ooh I need some temporary saving Ooh I need some, some uncomplicating
Help me out ‘Cause I don’t wanna do this on my own”
They have just released an amazing neon light themed lyric video, check it out;
Charles Otto Puth Jr. is an American singer, songwriter and record producer. He is among the few male artistes who can hit very high notes in the likes of Micheal Jackson and Shayne Ward. He can easily make a girl’s heart melt when he sings because his voice is a killer! Do we really need to talk about his looks? Handsome! Gorgeous! Hot! One to die for! He has just released a new song called song How long.
Charlie has written and produced the song. When the song starts, it sounds like the ghost busters song. In the video, he is dancing in the street, walking on walls and defying gravity, at some point he’s seen in an office on top of tables in a suit.
According to the lyrics of the song he is owning up to his mistakes by being brutally honest. His girl just found out he cheated on her, and she’s devastated and heart broken. He tries to explain himself by saying;
“I’ll admit, I was wrong
What else can I say, girl?
Can’t you blame my head and not my heart?
I was drunk, I was gone, that don’t make it right, but
Promise there were no feelings involved”
But his girl needs more answers than that by asking
“Boy, tell me honestly Was it real or just for show?” Yeah Save your apologies Baby, I just gotta know
How long has this been going on?
You’ve been creeping ’round on me
While you’re calling me baby
You’ve been acting so shady
I’ve been feeling it lately, baby”
But Puth insists it was a one-time thing. Check out his new video;
Jamaican pop star Samantha J has dropped another hit, “Rockets” just like she hinted in a recent interview I had with her. The star has been riding high with her recent release, “Baby Love” featuring R. City. The collaboration already has over 1 million views on Youtube.
“Rockets” is a feel good song with a lot of EDM influence.
In my previous conversation with her, she said that “the next single is likely to be called called “Rockets” and was produced by the Norwegian team of Erik and Kriss. I’m working on releasing a new song every three months as I am on a new record deal so I have the ability.”
Now that we know the name of the single, all I can say is that it is an instant hit. The singer is currently signed to Sony Music Norway, and cruises between Los Angeles and the Scandinavian country to work on new projects.
In the new video, Samantha serenades her crush, talking about the fairytale-esque things that she’d love to do with him. She opens up about how she feels about him, something that a typical girl would never do. She goes out at night with her love interest, walking down a street and end up having a sensual dip in a colorful swimming pool. It’s a more mature visual compared to her breakthrough “Tight Skirt” release, and I must say that our girl is truly headed for greater heights!
Clean Bandit are a Grammy Award winning British electronic music group. The band consists of Grace Chatto, and brothers Jack and Luke Patterson. The group was formed in Cambridge in 2008. The band’s name, Clean Bandit, comes from a translation of a Russian phrase. The meaning is similar to the English phrase “complete bastard”, though Patterson later stated that it is actually a more affectionate term similar to “utter rascal”. They have recently released a new song called I miss you featuring Julia Michaels.
They all wrote this song together. The piano opens the track with Michaels pouring her heart out over an ex still in her heart. Julia sings the chorus on the orchestral strings and tropical beats. Its a beautiful mix of melancholy and melody in Michaels’ hands. The video, which they directed themselves, features the performers in all red ensembles walking around the desert. Luke has the snare drum, Jack on the upright piano and Grace plays the cello.
Julia Michaels is no stranger to the industry. The 23-year-old singer has written tracks for Demi Lovato, Fifth Harmony, and more top stars. She officially launched her solo career as a performer at the start of 2017.
Grace Chatto spoke toBillboard that the group bonded over the filming process.
“Making the video in the desert outside of Los Angeles was very special. We got to know each other better in the blazing heat. We experimented with special effects and train tracks.”
She also explained that the song is about unbelievable pain of breaking up with someone you love. check out the video;
