Kenyan media personality Betty Kyallo has come out to dispel rumours that she has been having a very difficult time accepting the fact that her ex husband, Dennis Okari has moved on.

During the latest episode of Up-Close with Betty which aired on Friday, the K24 news presenter said she wishes Okari well with his new bride.

Ati nasikia watu wakisema nilikuwa nalilia kwa choo. Hakuna kitu kama hicho (I am told people were saying that I was weeping in the toilet. There is nothing like that.)”

The 30 year old anchor was speaking to Felix Owour alias Jalas who stood in for her in the popular show that she herself hosts.

Okari, an Investigative journalist cum news anchor with NTV, recently wedded Naomi Joy in an invite-only ceremony.

This after the he and Betty divorced following a lavish and much publicized wedding in 2015.  The two had a daughter together.

Following the latest wedding however, a lot of flak has been thrown in Betty’s way. While some people are happy for the newlyweds, tweeps have been trolling the Daystar University trained journalist with some even saying that she was “dumped by Okari because she is a celebrity and a Community wife’ (whatever that means.)

Earlier in the Friday interview, her mother revealed that she (Betty) once went against her wish and something that her mother did not approve of. “Things did not work out and I said to her…I told you,” she said.

She however showed her protective side when she said that sometimes she contacts people who cyber-bully her daughter. “As a mother, I have to wonder why they are making negative comments about her. Sometimes I try to interact with them and when they see me online, they say..oh, mom kumbe you are there, I am sorry.”

Asked whether she is seeing someone, Betty neither laughed the question off, only saying that she is happy. This prompted Jalas to suggest that there could be another wedding in the horizon.

This was the first time Betty is interviewed in her own show, Up-Close with Betty. In the interview, she also revisits the issue of dating public figures.

This is the new life of former TPF hottie Esther Nabaasa

Published

on

Her breakthrough was when she was signed by UG Records and during that time, being signed to a record label was a big plus for an artiste.

Esther Nabaasa had just won the second edition of the Tusker Project Fame (TPF). She was highly believed to be the next big thing after Juliana and Iryn Namubiru.

“I want my music to hit the international scene. I want to be marketable all over the world,” were her words soon after returning from Kenya where she had participated in the competition along with 18 other contestants.

But that did not happen. Nabaasa’s singing career lasted as long as her one-year record deal with Universal Music Group in South Africa.

QUIT MUSIC

There were stories that she had quit music after just a few songs such as Sing From the Nile, Yoga Yoga and Watwala Omutima Gwange.

Word then was that she was going to concentrate on her marriage to producer Michael Fingers. The couple have two children now and Nabaasa never completely quit music.

She settled for songwriting and she wrote some of the songs on Bebe Cool’s Go Mama album that was released in 2014 as well as Juliana’s Bits and Pieces.

Besides that, she also does music for commercials and last we heard is that she hit a jackpot writing one of the songs in Natasha Museveni Karugire’s 27 Gunsmovie.

Even today! 6 days to 39” shared  Walubengo.
