AUDIENCE CHEERS

“From the Motown records I wore out on the South Side,” she started before the audience cheers interrupted.

“Alright, we have a show to do, From the Motown records I wore out on the South Side to the ‘Who Run the World’ songs that fueled me through this last decade, music has always helped me tell my story. And I know that’s true for everybody here. Whether we like country or rap or rock, music helps us share ourselves, our dignity and sorrows, our hopes and joys. It allows us to hear one another, to invite each other in. Music shows us that all of it matters, every story within every voice, every note within every song.”

We were not happy anymore – Lilian Muli speaks on split from ex-husband

Published

on

Days after K24 news anchor Betty Kyallo opened up to her Instagram followers that she is happy that her ex-husband Dennis Okari has moved on, Lilian Muli has taken a cue.

Speaking to Kalekye Mumo, Muli disclosed that her relationship with ex-husband, Moses Njuguna Kanene, came to a slow, grinding halt and they had to go their separate ways.

The Citizen TV anchor narrated that though the relationship was bliss at first, it reached a point where she felt “strangulated.”

She added that they mutually agreed to part ways and still remain friends to date.

I was young, I was a small girl. That seems like a long time ago but it was pretty romantic. He was my friend, he remain my friend to date. He is an extremely romantic gentleman and so he guided me a lot along that process, it is what it is, things didn’t work out. He is a person I respect to date

We were not happy anymore, and we just got to a place where you know we were not friends anymore, and I felt strangulated, I just felt that the Lilian I knew was getting suffocated in this environment and we mutually opted it was not working. We agreed to go separate ways. It is easier that way, there is no unnecessary drama. Once you have a child with someone really that person is your life forever,” Muli told Kalyekye.

The forthcoming album is titled “Ndimuirigire”  ( I am guarded) which talks about how God  protects His people by surrounding them with a divine hedge of fire.

Besides being a singer, the former Atlanta resident is also a song writer whose star has continued to rise since she launched her first CD six years ago.

Her first album titled  “kirigiriro” (Hope) was released in 2013 while the second album entitled “Ngai ndarikitie nawe” (God id not done with you yet) was launched in 2016.

“I consider it  a huge blessing to introduce an additional name in my third album, ‘MD’ which stands for my husband. My previous albums only bore my first two names, Lizz Ndung’u, but I have since gotten married and I thank God greatly for that,” said Lizz in a Press Statement sent to KSN this week.

The event, which will be presided over by Rev. Dr.  Solomon Waigwa will be graced by a retinue of fellow gospel artistes with popular Diaspora media personality Jeremy Damaris as the Master of Ceremonies (MC).

She says this new release will touch many in a myriad ways besides being a blessing to those who will watch or listen to it.
