I’d never live in US again even if they gave me $1M a year – Koinange

Published

on

Kenyan media personality Jeff Koinange and his co-host Jalang’o on Hot 96 FM took time on Tuesday to discuss how Kenyans in the US live in their new home and how they act when they go back home to Kenya for holidays.

In a discussion that began with Jeff saying that he had met an old friend who has been living in New Jersey for 30 years, the conversation turned to why he would never return to America and slowly veering into the tribulations faced by Kenyans in the US.

“I will never go back to stay in America even if they gave me a million dollars a year,” Jeff proclaimed. “Nowhere be like Africa”

The duo also discussed what they thought were the reasons that Kenyans get “stuck” in the US. They at one point speculated that many in the US go back home only to find that their peers are doing pretty well and feel like they are no match.

Listen to the whole conversation here.

    I have been in America for about 15 yrs now, I visit Kenya every about year, and I live my life. I think you guys just have a show to produce or your audience just don’t know. You probably have limited knowledge about the experience if some minority Kenyans or starters here. All I have heard is the hussling starters and most of us went through that. We have successful kenyas who I haven’t heard anything about, and after the first 3 years if being in America, if you handle your life well, success comes. Do your research and cover all areas instead if just laughing with ignorance. Most Kenyans come here at a young age. They obtain their education main while struggling away with any jobs they can get to make a living, But on the process they are building their professional careers. If you could follow this people after they graduate and see how they live, we should hear about that too.

Kenyan singer Eunice Njeri explains her 24-hour marriage in Texas.

Published

BY OLIVIA MUNGWANA

 

Gospel singer Eunice Njeri has opened up on her 24-hour marriage to gospel rapper Isaac Bukasa, alias Izzo, which took place in Texas in  2016.

Njeri claims that a medical condition forced her to hurriedly get married.

Close to two years later, Njeri explains why she decided to get married in the first place and what prompted her to end it on the day of their wedding .

“I wasn’t going with my heart at the time, also at the same time I was very sick. I had fibroids. Bleeding a lot and at the same time I thought I should get married. I was like maybe I should do this, why am I saying no? I have been saying no for 20 year maybe it’s time to say yes,” she narrated.

“And in that mix of being sick, being in the hospital and getting all these transfusions, I had a whole confusion time. Confusion made me rush into decisions I wouldn’t have made.”

The gospel singer underwent a successful surgery last year to remove the fibroids.

The two announced their engagement in September 19, 2016  via Instagram. Two months later, they invited friends and family for their wedding on November 27 at Neema Gospel Church in Texas where Izzo’s family lives.

Photos of the ceremony were shared online by those who attended.

The marriage however ended barely 24 hours after they had tied a knot, a shameful divorce that was wrapped in secrecy by friends and family.

Few months later, Njeri took to her Instagram to finally break the news on how the marriage ended on the day of the wedding. She explained that her heart was somewhere else (not in United States) and that place was Kenya.

She immediately left the States to return home.

Six reasons men just can’t stop staring at women, even when they have their own

Published

on

It was one of those warm days that inflated Mombasa this week. I was on my way to campus on my bicycle. Two blocks from where I resided, I turned right towards the main road and found myself five metres behind a young lady.

She had long black hair and was wearing a short putty-colored top, grey sweatpants – the top tucked primly beneath the sweatpants.

My first sight of her felt like a light blow to the chest. Her body held my interest, so did her decision to put on fitting sweatpants along with her splendid figure, her loveliness.

 

Even with the fleetingness of the six blocks, I kept her company close behind- she turned right, and she was gone. We owe each other nothing.

The inevitable backwash of guilt arrived, as my fellow men know it does. I had spent minutes gazing at a pretty girl`s backside. I have a girlfriend and heck! I hope she is not reading this. I could hear my inner critic pressing charges against me.

So, why does girl-watching have such terrible reputation?

 

I had a heated discussion with some of my classmates and everyone had their own reasons, others rebuking it while others praised it.

I found myself at crossroads and finally set out to unearth why the infamous male gaze is not creepy as some think it is.

 

Why It Is Okay To Creepily Stare At Women

Science Suggests…

When a man looks at a woman, a chemical reaction happens in his brain. Neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin are released, giving him an involuntary surge of pleasure. It is simply nature.

2. Men can`t help it

It is right there in the headline! Whether they want or not, men can`t stop staring at women. It is “UNAVOIDABLE”. That`s just how male sexuality works. Do you really want men to stop doing something that they can`t stop doing? That just won`t happen.

3. The weather

It`s a scientific fact: When the weather gets hotter women`s clothes get smaller, and when women`s clothes get smaller, men have no choice (see no.2) but to catalogue and analyse every inch of exposed skin. Don`t like it, ladies? The last time I checked, men did not make the weather- Mother Nature did!

4. Women have boobs

“I`m having a hard time concentrating; the waitress at the cafe is brain-stopping. Her cleavage seems to be the prix fixe. Those boobs are on the menu, just like food! Isn`t it?

5. Charles Darwin

Men look at attractive women because attractiveness means women are healthy and fertile, an evolutionary advantage.

6. Not staring at women is pointless

Would not staring at women “help” anything? I wonder. No, it would not.

So, there you have it! I have done my homework. To those ignorant people slumbering in the dark ages of culture and dogma or whatever it is, kindly wake up and face reality.
