Meet the Kenyan beauty who stole Jose Mourinho’s heart

Published

on

As Manchester United Football Club bid adieu to former manager Jose Mourinho, Silvana Lelesit, a Kenyan beauty who stole the ‘Special One’s’ heart in Mombasa was following the developments with keen interest.

Silvana and Mourinho met at the coast during his 2010 visit to Kenya.

Their first meeting was at Diani Beach, at Silvana’s jewellery shop, when Mourinho and his family – wife and children – went out to shop, from the prestigious Almanara Luxury Villas. The two-week secret holiday in Kenya was missed by the media, but not Silvana.

Mourinho went on to buy an expensive gold bracelet from Silvana, and trusted her to ship it to him in Poland, once he left Kenya. And that is exactly what she did.

Silvana says the Special One is a calm guy and she gets annoyed when people make fun of Mourinho.

“He (Mourinho) is a laid-back guy. He is a good coach, I think the only thing he hasn’t won in his career is the World Cup. So, people shouldn’t be so hard on him,” Silvana told The Nairobian.

By 2017, Silvana’s life had completely changed and some people were even claiming that Mourinho was the financier. She bought a posh home in Nyali, Mombasa and frequently flew abroad for vacation. One incident saw her lose her Kenyan-Somali boyfriend. She had sneaked out of Kenya to Switzerland, where she was staying at a lavish hotel. Her boyfriend allegedly could not take it anymore and decided to call lit quits.

There were claims she was having an affair with Mourinho and that the relationship was taking a toll on the celebrated coach’s marriage.

Silvana did not want to be drawn into the matter. When The Nairobian caught up with her, she said that their first meeting was awesome, and that everyone in the shop at that time was happy to meet the Special One.

“It was a good opportunity for everyone who was in the shopping centre to also see him in person,” she said.

She added that her relationship with Mourinho has forced her to hide from the public because everyone wants to get a piece of the story. She said she had to close down her Diani business to have some peace of mind.

“I’m a businesslady. I do a lot of different things, but I no longer have any in Diani because it became scary. People were popping in every time and asking questions, especially journalists. It worsened when others came to my house and place of work. I was scared!” Silvana said.

She added that, “The moment I realised that even international media from the United Kingdom were looking for me, I said enough was enough and closed the business.”

When Mourinho visited Kenya in 2010, he had just been appointed as the new Real Madrid manager, soon after winning the European Champions League with Inter Milan.

Kambua

15yrs ago I packed my bags and left for Canada. A foreign land, in the middle of winter, to pursue a dream. My parents were my biggest cheerleaders- my father especially taught me the importance of having an education,’ she wrote in part.

She continued,

10yrs ago I graduated against all odds with my BA in Music from Ambrose University college. Over the last 10, God has continued to show me that he is the giver of dreams and if we trust his leading, he allows us to be more than we could ask, or imagine. Imela papa!.

In a recent interview, the mother of one revealed that her late father Professor Manundi forced her to study hard, though she wasn’t serious with her education.

She said after returning from the USA,

AFTER THE SUMMER CAMP, I CAME BACK TO KENYA AND joined UNIVERSITY. I STARTED BECAUSE I DID NOT FINISH THE COURSE. MY GRADES WERE GOOD, I APPRECIATED AND ENJOYED IT, BUT I KNEW MY HEART WAS TAGGING ME IN A DIFFERENT DIRECTION ON CAMPUS, I WAS ACTIVELY SINGING. IF THERE WAS AN EVENT I WAS THERE. EVERYBODY ON CAMPUS KNEW THERE’S A GIRL ON CAMPUS CALLED KAMBUA WHO SINGS. I KNEW MUSIC IS WHAT I WANTED TO DO AND DO IT SERIOUSLY.

“Ivanna prefers her dad to me,” Betty Kyallo speaks co-parenting

Published

on

Betty Kyallo´s YouTube channel has only been giving us more insight into the media personality´s personal and family life.

This time, she was open to discuss her celebrity crush and how co-parenting with Dennis Okari has been fairing.

The bubbly TV girl spent the day running errands with her youngest sister, Gloria Kyallo and her close friend, Karen.

Betty was taking us on a tour to the carpet center that is handling her beauty parlor´s renovation furniture sets, as she preps to relocate to a much bigger space.

On their way to the place, Betty revealed just how much of a daddy´s girl Ivanna is, always opting to go out with Dennis Okari than with her.

Imagine Ivanna has actually refused to leave the house. She only does it with her dad. Mimi, okay she did once but I don´t know why she refuses to go with me. I even told her today morning, ´mummy, let´s go for a drive´… but imagine she refused.

Betty Kyallo´s daughter, Ivanna

Betty´s co-parenting with celebrated NTV journalist, is proving to be pretty smooth and not much of a big deal after she revealed that today morning, Ivanna was set for a date with her dad, Okari.

My baby is becoming a sweet little girl 🎈🎈 She chooses what to wear. She likes dresses and track suits just like me❤️ . She chose what to wear today because she had a date with her dad.

Unfortunately, Ivanna is already all grown now and is no longer in the business of warm cuddles or sweet kisses from her mother and this makes Betty sad.

She doesn’t like cuddles anymore. I have to beg for kisses, she gives hugs easily and she doesn’t like oats anymore😆. I’m happy God Gave me a second chance with her.

Celebrity crush

Away from that, Betty was previously spotted snuggling with an alleged Somali guy months after her breakup with Okari.

But for a while now, we are no longer seeing the arms, legs or even curled up hair of this guy taking over Betty´s heart.

During their trip around Nairobi, the three girls were caught on camera drooling over random hunk guys on the streets.

TV girl, Betty Kyallo

Betty bluntly jerked:

That´s a handsome guy. Wah! have you seen him? Heh! he´s handsome my gosh! Kama kitu ni nzuri, sema. He has a kid, wrapped on his chest as he pulls the stroller and if he has a kid, he´s good. That´s a sure pass.

On a different occasion, Betty gushed over a passerby hinting that the guy would be  good match for her younger sister.

Eh! Cheki ule chali, Gloria, he´s your type.

With Gloria sweetly admitting:

Eeh…he´s short.

Gloria Kyallo

Betty revealed Gloria loves the short chubby type. In other words, the abujubuju type. Nice one!

It then came a time when everyone had their chance to name their celebrity crush, whether locally or global. A shy Betty confessed her liking has always been for renowned ragga and dancehall artist, Redsan since way back.

Quite jittery and shy about her crush, the single mom fumbled a bit before admitting:

Aki please, if you have a wife or girlfriend, please don´t come for me. I´ve always had a crush on Redsan but please don´t make him watch me say this, please. There´s a way he just seats, that muscular, serious and swaggish pose and he´s like ´what´s up B?´ That guy looking hot! Even though my dreams didn´t come true, that guy is my guy. Redsan unakuanga umeweza.

Kenyan dancehall artist, Redsan

Further brushing off:

Probably he is seeing someone and plus it´s not like crushes end up being your better half anyway. Crushes don´t come to be.

For Gloria, turns out, she´s head over heals for Stivo Simple Boy. Not for anything else, but for his music, with the random lyrics that come with that sharp, wild, girly tone.

For Karen, NTV journalist Mark Masai floored them all, especially because of his voice.

Regards who is currently in her life, Betty stated:

You´ll be seeing him soon.

Uhuru called me after ‘Wajinga Nyinyi’ dropped -King Kaka

Published

on

Kenyan singer King Kaka has revealed the pressure he was under following the release of his political song Wajinga Nyinyi earlier this year.

The song was the talk of the town among Kenyans for weeks as it recounted the ills that bedevil our country.

Hiyo time ilikuwa noma sana. I never experienced something like that in my life as it got so intense to a point where I couldn’t even eat in a restaurant due to the many threats I was receiving because of the song” King Kaka said on Friday.

He says he wrote the song out of anger because the nation was reporting one scandal after another.

The singer says he does not regret doing the song because of the feedback he got.

He revealed that he got calls from senior government officials among them President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Nairobi News could not independently authenticate the claim.

He said the purpose of the song was to enlighten people on their rights.

King Kaka also addressed rumours that he might join politics, saying: “Every party has called me and when I’m ready to vie if they support me but not now.”

“I evaluate myself every year on my birthday, I look back on what I haven’t done and what needs to be done, I had a lot of plans for this year from family to business and my music but we shall get back to normalcy again.”
