Trouble in Paradise as Kanda King confesses wife left and has no idea where she is

Published

on

It appears there is trouble in paradise judging by a post by celebrated Lingala dancer Said Makdar popularly known as Kanda King .

Kanda shocked his fans on social media after posting a picture that captures the mother of his three children with an unknown man sitting between her thighs.

However, what left his fans scratching their heads was Kanda’s message accompanying the photo.

In the post he passionately asked for help to find the unidentified man.

“WHO KNOWS THIS GUY? AM LOOKING FOR HIM DEAD OR ALIVE!” wrote Kanda King.

WHO KNOWS THIS GUY ?? AM LOOKING FOR HIM DEAD OR ALIVE !!!! 😡😡😡😡😡!!!

 

Speaking to Nairobi News on phone, Kanda revealed how distressed he was since he has not seen the love of his life since Wednesday.

The talented dancer is left confused on how to establish his wife’s whereabouts.

“I came back home yesterday and did not find my wife at home I questioned the house help and she told me that she had left a few minutes before I came in with a small bag,” says Kanda King.

At first Kanda did not think much of it. However when night fell and she was still nowhere to be seen he made attempt to reach her on phone but this proved futile as her phone was off.

“Today in the morning a friend sent me the picture that I shared on social media that captures her embracing another man. At first I did not know what to make of it but I decided to share it online so that anyone who knows the guy can contact me since I am very worried,” said the exasperated Kanda.

He added: “I am still trying to call her but her phone is still switched off. I just hope that she is okay and nothing bad has happened to her. If she does not turn up today, then I will report her missing to the police.”

The renowned dancer during a past interview on Nairobi News’ Snappy 7 segment said he had been dancing for 25 years and he recruited his wife and son to become a dancing family.

Kanda King, who is a younger brother to gospel singer Princess Farida, has since incorporated singing into his performances and features a live band in his entertainment events.

Amina Abdi: Bribery made me quit music

Published

on

Media personality Amina Abdi Rabar has revealed that she quit doing music because of rampant bribing she experienced in the Kenyan music industry.

Before joining the media, Amina’s first love was music. She gave a glimpse of her singing talent with songs such as On Me, featuring Jay A, and Swag, featuring Octopizzo.

CRAZY BRIBERY

However, Amina, who hosts the weekly show The Trend on NTV, would quit music almost immediately to fully concentrate on building a career in the media as well as establish herself as one of the most sought after emcees in the country.

But why exactly did she dump the recording booth?

“It was the bribing you had to do and because I was on radio and no one was paying me to play any of the music. I didn’t expect that. It really caught me by surprise,” Amina said in a conversation with Vybz Yaard.

But that wasn’t all. Making music also proved to be very expensive for her.

EXPENSIVE VENTURE

“There was lack of support and then it was very difficult to get started. They say there is a certain video type of quality that can be played on air. A good quality video, how much is it? By that time when I was releasing Paint Town Red I was told 300K and I’m making sijui 15K. It was really hard and TV and radio was picking up. I could see the potential it had, so that’s what I focused on,” said Amina, who is also presenter at Capital FM.

Amina however says she will soon make a comeback to music after almost a decade of silence.

But this time round, she says, she will be doing music only as a hobby with the media remaining her core hustle.

Amina started her media career at Homeboyz Radio where she met her husband DJ John Rabar, one of the station’s founders.

AMINA’S DRIVE

The bubbly presenter, who is also a notable influencer, says besides being self-driven, her husband Rabar is the one who constantly challenges her to work even harder.

“My partner also pushes me, my husband works very hard. He is extremely ambitious and really pushes me to work harder. He never allows me to take breaks. If you have someone like that who you live with, who is always working, anakuaga na zile za wewe una do nini? So pia wewe unajipata unafanya vitu,” she said.

Amina and Rabar have a son and hinted they may never make any more babies.

Popular Tanzania actress ends 3-year marriage, cites violence

Published

on

BY KEVIN KOECH

Popular Tanzanian actress Zena Yusuf Mohammed, alias Shilole, has opened up about her violence-riddled marriage.

Taking to Instagram, the Shilole, 32, said she has decided to end her 3-year marriage to her husband Uchebe, whom she started dating in 2016.

Shilole has two teenage daughters from her previous relationships.

She gave birth to her first born child, who is now 18 years old, at the age of 14, after an alleged defilement ordeal.

On Wednesday, July 8, she took to Instagram, to allege that she had been a victim of domestic abuse throughout her 3-year marriage to her partner, Uchebe.

The actress’ husband is yet to respond to her claims

“I am writing this with a clear mind and conscience. First, I would like to apologise to my family. I am seeking your forgiveness because I assured you that my marriage was trouble-free, while in reality, it wasn’t peaceful. I have been a victim of domestic violence and other evil acts I cannot speak about on this platform.

“I apologise because every time I heard my fellow women cry for justice after being assaulted by their spouses, I would urge them to voice out their grievances. When I heard that there was a woman from Kigamboni, who had been fatally battered and her body set alight by her husband, I was the first one to say: ‘she should have spoken out about her marital troubles’. I pretended that I was not one of the domestic abuse victims; I distanced myself from the group of women who were victims of domestic violence. Forgive me.

“As an artist, I am a role model to many in the society; I represent women on many fronts. Today, I have decided to break my silence on my marital woes. My husband Ashrafu Sadiki, popularly known as Uchebe, has been battering me too much!

“And, after meting out violence on me, he never calls to show concern or know about my wellbeing. Other people, unknown to me, are the ones who usually nurse me in hospitals after being beaten up by my spouse. In my marriage, there are many other bad things that have been done to me, making my union lack the expected bliss.

“Making matters worse, I am a mother; a parent of children who look up to me as their mother and father. I won’t allow myself to be killed and leave my children motherless, not today!

“I loved Uchebe, I persevered to be with him despite his inadequacies; I gave him everything (my innocence, my wealth, and when he needed a woman to stand by him so that he could get on his feet — financially and socially — I was there for him). I did all that because I knew he and I were together in everything as husband and wife. Despite all that, my sacrifices did not stop him from battering me endlessly, disrespecting and betraying me.

“Two days ago, when I returned home from my livelihood-seeking activities in Dar es Salaam, he seriously beat me up, forgetting that I had gone out there to look for food not only for my children, but also him. Why did he assault me? Because of petty marital conflicts that are present in all marriages. He did not batter me because he had found me cheating on him, or on issues that are hard to solve through dialogue, no. Furthermore, I respect him so much.

“Nonetheless, he saw the best way of solving the small dispute that we had, was through battering me senselessly. I was asleep when he punched me in the face.

“I know there is a section of people who will fault me for bringing to social media my marital woes, however, I would like to tell them that I was left with no other choice but to share my predicaments on this platform. What happens in my life, [being a public figure], should be known by my fans. Many people in the society look up to me as their role model.

“I have had enough [of domestic abuse], and from now henceforth, I would like to state categorically that no one should refer to me as Uchebe’s wife. People should refer to me as ‘that mother who chose to prioritise her children’s welfare and wellbeing at the expense of a toxic relationship’. They should describe me as ‘that woman who chose her happiness and safety [over a violence-ridden marriage].

“My female fans and other women in the society, should use this social media post of mine as a strong message that says ‘we [as women] should speak up when we have been reduced to punching bags and recipients of brutality, because if we don’t, we’ll end up dead someday’.”

Parliament’s most silent MPs

Published

on

Your legislator may be among MPs and Senators who have never uttered a single word at the floor of the August House despite Kenyan representatives being among the highest paid parliamentarians in the world.

According to the Annual Parliamentary Scorecard for the third Session of the 12th Parliament released yesterday, a total of 21 members did not utter a single word during the entire session.

Of the 21, 19 are from the National Assembly with two being from the Senate. Male legislators dominate the list.

MPs who have never uttered a word at the Plenary include Nakuru Town West MP Samuel Arama and his Kapseret counterpart Oscar Sudi who while being vocal in other matters outside the August House, find no words inside parliament as legislators debate serious issues concerning their constituents.

The other silent MPs include Abdi Tepo (Isiolo South), Abdi Shurie (Balambala), Ahmed Gaal (Tarbaj), Johnson Naicca (Mumias West), Amin Deddy (Laikipia East) Geofrey Kingagi (Mbeere South), James Gakuya (Embakasi North), George Aladwa (Makadara) and John Owino (Awendo).

The rest are Stanley Muthama (Lamu West), Gideon Konchella (Kilgoris), Justus Kizito (Shinyalu), Alfred Sambu (Webuye East) and James Mukwe (Kabuchai).

Rose Museo (Makueni), Beatrice Kones (Bomet East) and Amina Gedow (Mandera) were the silent women in the House.

BEST PERFORMERS

In a report released Wednesday morning by  Mzalendo Trust, a Parliamentary monitoring organisation, the best performing MPs at the National Assembly were Millie Odhiambo (Suba North), David Sankok (Nominated), Wilberforce Ojiambo (Funyula), Robert Pukose (Endebess) and Benson Makali (Kitui Central).

The leading lights at the Senate were Ledama Ole Kina (Narok), Moses Wetangula (Bungoma), Aaron Cheruiyot (Kericho), Ochilo Ayako (Migori) and Getrude Musuruve (Nominated).

Millie Odhiambo, Jacqueline Oduol (Nominated), Jennifer Shamala (Nominated), Ruweida Obo (Lamu) and Sophia Noor (Ijara) were the top-performing women in the National Assembly.

The scorecard, released annually, aims at enhancing transparency and accountability and is based on members’ contributions in Plenary as captured in the Hansard.

“Every so often, we get queries from members about the performance of their MPs. The scorecard is therefore a way of enforcing the social contract between MPs and the electorate, as they exercise delegated authority on behalf of the citizens,” Mzalendo Trust Executive Director, Caroline Gaita, said.
