The social media was abuzz Friday as photos of Kenyan celebrated gospel artiste Emmy Kosgei surfaced online after she landed at Atlanta’s  Hartsfied Jackson International Airport for this year’s Atlanta Majuu Cultural festival.

The musician was received by the head of the Kenyan American Community Center (KACC), Rev Dr GG Gitahi and Atlanta-based gospel artiste, Naomi Karanja.

On arrival, she posted the following message on Instagram: “Thank you Jesus!! All set.. we kick off this evening #Atlantamajuufestival#KACC He makes everything beautiful at His time! Keep waiting upon the Lord…”

 The event, which  is organised by the Kenyan American Community Church, has been billed as an exhibition and extravaganza featuring a myriad Kenyan-African inter-cultures. KACC has, through such events in the past, added to the cultural tapestry that shapes the American Society which is increasingly becoming multicultural.

Emmy will be the guest performer at  this year’s fete, expected to pull thousands of guests, including other musicians from around the US. She was supposed to grace the first ever Majuu Cultural Festival two years ago but could not make it.

“We are so excited to have her with us,” said Timothy Ndegwa, the KACC administrative secretary and proprietor of Mykenyanlink, an online platform which seeks to connect Kenyan entrepreneurs around the world.

“KACC has been promoting and supporting other Kenya Diaspora communities in celebrating their cultural heritage with great pride and enthusiasm,” wrote Dr Gitahi on Atlanta Majuu Festival’s website.

For the last ten years, the church has, with great passion nurtured and celebrated cultural diversity that is exhibited in the rich Kenya-African culture.

However, Majuu festival was launched some two years ago.

Last year, the festival saw performances by intergenerational artistes. There were also – among other activities – traditional dances, children and youth cultural fashion shows, booths and huts showcasing Kenyan diverse ethnic groups’ cultures and traditions.

“The festival seeks to inform, educate, inspire and entertain those in attendance even as it mesmerizes those who will be experiencing the Kenyan African Culture for the first time,” said Dr Gitahi.”

The event runs through Sunday evening.

Emmy Kosgei-Madubuko is best known for her 2009 hit song, Taunet Nelel, among many others.

Below are some of the social media comments as written by fans of the renowned musician.

Mr Obia’s gun has been confiscated and police are trying to establish whether the firearm certificate he presented is genuine.

He has been released on police bond. Police say he will be charged by Thursday after they conclude their investigations.

Obia is well known in Nairobi’s high-end entertainment circles and is often described as a “flamboyant businessman” in media reports.

He is already facing charges of pretending that he could sell 7kg of gold to Mr Christian Gallati, an Austrian national for which he obtained the Sh13.7 million during a meeting at a hotel in Nairobi city centre.

Joyce Omondi opens up how she’s very different from her lover Waihiga

Published

on

Citizen TV’s Waihiga Mwaura and Joyce Omondi have been together for almost five years now and they are still goals.

The two are always visibly in love and Kenyans have always awed their relationship which is always blossoming. Omondi revealed that though the two are madly in love with each other, they are slightly different people.

Speaking on the Trend, she opened up about her man likes a lot of “noise” while she’s a down low person.

“Waihiga is an extrovert. He is lit. Me, I’m all about quietness. When you come in the house and I’m alone, I’ll have one electronic turned on. Waihiga will have the news on, he is listening to music and then he as like a laptop and he is working. To me that’s chaos but for him, that’s how he functions,” she said.

Omondi and news anchor walked down the aisle in 2015 in an exclusive wedding.

Televangelist James Ng’ang’a arrested for “threatening Linus Kaikai”

Published

on

Controversial televangelist James Ng’ang’a of Neno Evangelism was Sunday night arrested for threatening Citizen TV journalist Linus Kaikai.

Pastor Ng’ang’a was picked up from his church in Nairobi at the junction of Haile Selassie Avenue and Mombasa Road and locked up at Muthaiga Police Station after Kaikai had complained he felt threatened following a video footage that the pastor produced attacking him.
Police said he was praying with other worshipers when he was picked up after being informed of his crime at about 11pm.
Police said Ng’ang’a will be arraigned later.

In a viral video released last week, the pastor, dressed in military-like regalia and calling himself a “Chief General Commander” threatened unexplained “consequences” believed to be directed at Kaikai.
Kaikai, who is one of the panelists in a news show, News Gang, went viral with his take seeking to regulate pastors he referred to as spiritual fraudsters who are profiting off unsuspecting Kenyans.
“The people behind these so called churches have gone rogue in the name of Jesus, in the name of God,” Kaikai said.

“We are dealing with thieves not men of God. These are cold blooded evangelical vampires living off the blood of their flock in the name of Jesus. They are conmen who must have their date with our police and our law courts. Some of them preach prosperity but only they profit.”
“To these characters, Sunday, a day ordained as the Lord’s Day of rest and worship has become the most profitable day on the trading floor. Offerings flow like a mighty river and onward into their private accounts in the Lord’s name.”

Kaikai listed few instances when pastors have made the news for conning members of their churches and minting millions off illegal schemes.
This prompted Ng’ang’a to shoot his video with the attacks on Kaikai.
“I am telling you like a Chief General Commander, you have to stop that, if you don’t stop you will face the consequences…” said Pastor Ng’ang’a.
“…. I can’t hide you but you can hide me.”
