'I was a mboch in Kayole' Sabina Chege
Former Murang'a Women's Rep Sabina Chege has revealed she used to work as a house help.
This was because at the time her parents did not have the finances to take her to the University of Nairobi where she was to further her education.
Speaking during an interview on Kameme Fm, she said;
"I became a house help after I cleared form 4. I was not happy because despite having performed well I was just at home plucking Tea."
I got married during my first year on campus. The day I was supposed to report is when I delivered. My reporting was delayed by two months.
"I used to go to school with my baby and the nanny, whenever there was a break I would breastfeed her and leave her with the nanny in the hostels."
Having started acting while in High School, Sabina's interest in acting continued
"While working in Kayole I saw people acting on Tausi and I became interested.
There was a lady called Rehema who had left the show. They had found someone to replace her but I was invited for a screen test.
On the day of the screen tests, I beat the other lady and got the role. I went and informed my bosses that I would soon be acting on Tausi, they were very shocked."
It is while still at Campus that Sabina landed a job at Kameme FM, a renowned vernacular radio station.
Mzee Abdul lectures his son Diamond Platnumz
Diamond Platnumz’s estranged dad Abdul Juma has blasted his son for getting a nose piercing.
Mzee Abdul said that was not a manly thing to do.
Diamond's dad Mzee Abdul said that his son went against what he considered African tradition.
He also condemned the habit of men drawing tattoos on their bodies.
"He did a wrong thing, truth be told because our culture and traditions do not allow men to do such stuff," he stated.
"We tried having drawings on our bodies but right now we are regretting it."
Abdul stated that the piercing was not in line with their cultures and customs.
"Maybe he did that because of his wealth and to please his friends. The likes of Tupac did it but they were from Tanzania and did not subscribe to the culture and tradition of the Mbale and Nyamwezi people. Maybe he (Diamond) tried to do what he pleased, but I was not pleased," he said.
Instead of getting the piercing, Abdul says his son should have bought himself an expensive gift to show his wealth.
