VIDEO: Marking her 30th birthday, Betty Kyallo spills the beans about her personal life.

To mark her 30th birthday, K24 news anchor Betty Kyallo has spilled the beans about her personal life.

In a tell it all interview with comedian Jalang’o on Friday, Betty talked about her life, career and marriage to NTV investigative journalist and news anchor Dennis Okari.

Among the issues she talked about was her baby daddy’s (Dennis) recent nuptials and rumours about the bride having been her maid of honuor during her wedding to Dennis.

“I wish nothing but the best for Okari and his new bride. Because I moved on with my life since our divorce and managed to find happiness again. And I would not want him to still be affected by our separation but to be able to move on and find happiness like I did,” Betty said during the interview.

“And about that rumour that has been going around that my ex’s bride was my maid of honour at my wedding to Okari is just lies. I do not know her, and we have never met before. The maid of honour at my wedding was gospel artiste Rosy Ohon,” she added.

However, what has left netizens with raised eyebrows was Betty’s mother’s comments during the show.

UNHEEDED WARNING

Betty’s mother said she warned her celebrity daughter about something in the past but she did not listen to her.

This in turn led to things not working out in Betty’s life.

She however wasn’t specific in the matter, leaving it to the audience to speculate whether her warning had to do with Betty’s failed marriage or her romantic relationship with a prominent public figure at the time of her marriage.

According to media reports, it is alleged that Betty dated Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho, although she has in the past neither accepted or denied the allegations.

Well, that was until last night when Jalang’o probed her about the matter.

Here is how part of Betty’s conversation with Jalang’o went:

Jalang’o: After dating the governor you know you can only date a president.

Betty: No no no, that is not true.

Jalang’o: You can’t go below that.

Betty: Who said first of all I am happy (giggles uncontrollably as Jalango continues to taunting her). I’m happy financially, I said I would never date anyone who is in the public limelight again.

Published

on

Bonfire Adventures co-founder Sarah Kabu has urged couples not to shy away from asking for financial help from relatives and friends for their dream weddings.

Sarah was adding her voice to the ongoing debate on flashy weddings after billionaire Manu Chandaria wedded his wife of 64 years at the Attorney General’s office at a low key ceremony that cost Sh 3,900.

“I’m here to encourage the young couples not to shy to ask for mchango; those who don’t want to changa dont attend people’s weddings they are expensive… even Jesus changad for a wedding by donation of his miracle to turn water into wines… weddings are meant to be a merry making event watu waonje Mali yako… life is not that serious jameni,” Sarah posted on her Instagram page

Most of her fans did not agree with her sentiments

“Me for today I don’t agree with you,for youngs..wedding is a one day function & marriage is a forever thing,if a person cant afford the big weddings we got the AG,chief..Never spend what you cant afford especially in wed A BIG LIFE MISTAKE,do a simple wed & live without stress, si kufanya wed watu waje wale & leave you with life loans,” commented mwauraeliud

Phylliskariuki said; “Everybody should live their lives the way they deem fit. Big wedding, good for you, small wedding good for you too. Let’s not impose on others.”

“Let everyone do what is best for them. I admire this couple. They have spent decades together, why spend millions on a formality? Where I come from, if you dare ask for contributions for your wedding, you may end up not marrying, as people believe you have to be financially ready before you take that step,” posted sunshinebalogun .

“Sarah please let people be, be! To each their own. Stop giving wrong advice. Big weddings are good if you can afford, small weddings are good, no weddings are good. To each their own lady Sarah,” commented w.a.m.z.y.

Walleroliver added, “ Why poke nose to someone’s wedding ,you haven’t contributed anything to his life, you can do a party on his behalf then call us to come and eat ,i am sure those who are hungry will come.”

I’m just different not cultish, Esther Arunga’s ex-pastor now says

Published

on

When Joseph Hellon Onyango holds a saxophone, women shiver; or at least that is what he says they tell him when they attend his performances. When he plays the sax or the flute, what emerges is a vibration of sounds that he has now purposed into what he refers to as “his call.”

He calls his music godly, and is quick to add that he does not believe in what people classify as gospel music. For him, as long as music has a positive message and lifts people’s spirit, then it is right by God.

Hellon is a preacher. A different one. He believes a pair of coloured jeans and curls like the ones on his head have nothing to do with winning souls.

His church, the one that landed former television star Esther Arunga into controversy, is up and standing.He says the service is held every Sunday at Kenya School of Law and he has more than 300 members.

Back then, the church was called Finger of God, a name Hellon says he chose after carefully reading the bible.

“Finger of God is holy spirit. The Law of Moses was written by the finger of God. There is nothing dirty about that name as Kenyans were suggesting,” he says.He says when his church was at the centre of bad Press in 2010, around the time when Esther Arunga had resigned from her job to be fully involved in church and become a politician, he contemplated changing the name.

In March this year, the church changed name to Kingdom Embassy International. He in partnership with an American preacher, run other churches globally.“When I was facing the devil in 2010, my church was alone. I realised the importance of partnerships. I imagine things would have been different if I had support,” he says.Hellon has mastered the bible.

He says he has read Genesis to Revelation, and in between, he has learnt to forgive people, including the media who called his church a cult.

Serious counselling

“There is nothing cultish about my church. I am controversial and I do things differently. Our messiah was controversial. Preachers who are not should ask themselves if they are really working for God,” he says, as he plays his golden sax at his Karen home in Nairobi.

On Thursday, a few hours after Arunga had been handed a 10-months suspended sentenced by an Australian court, social media erupted blaming Hellon for her woes.“I met Esther at a church event. I was a singer and she was emceeing. We talked and decided to do business together,” he says, explaining the start of a friendship that many believe ruined Arunga.

He says she also wanted serious counselling, a task he was ready for since he was a preacher. The jazz maestro says he was contracted to work for the Famous Tusker Project Fame show and he says when Quincy Timberlake, his former schoolmate at Kokuro Primary School in Migori saw him on TV, he reached out and they rekindled a friendship that has since been severed.

“He came to my church and he is the one who helped in registering the Placenta party where I was vying for president with Esther as my deputy,” says Hellon.

Their relationship, church activities and mannerism became an issue of public concern.It has been nine years since they made news, and his church put under police investigations. The case filed against the church was dismissed for lack of evidence. Hellon says he has grown even more.A faithful, identified only as Bullah says he has never met a man wiser than his spiritual leader Hellon.“When you talk to him, you realise he is different and he understands the bible better than most people,” he says.

Hellon’s wife Kuyu notes that no matter what was reported about her husband back then, nothing would have changed her mind from believing in him.“I knew there was nothing wrong with his church. If you know your husband, there is nothing that people say that can shake you,” she says.

When conversations about religion and people losing their all come up, as they often do when the saga surrounding Hellon and his church spring up, he believes someday God will descend, and it is then that people will realise his church was genuine. Until then, he waits. And while he does, he takes the deepest breath, and blows into his saxophone.

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.
