After wowing Kenyans with a viral video of him shouting mbao mbao! at a train station in Oregon, United States, Justin Bradford, popularly known as Justo, has yet again surprised his fans, but this time with a new single. Justo, who lived in Kenya for some time, is a fluent Swahili speaker.

“I have a passion for Swahili and have always had a passion for singing. My mother always sang to me as a child and it inspired me to want to sing as well. It’s something I love to do, so I did it,” he said.

Justo, who lived in Kenya for some time, is a fluent Swahili speaker.

He sings in perfect Swahili and the lyrics are especially not shallow. Sample this:

“Ati baibe wewe sio kumi wewe ni thao, twende huko tao.”

There is also something about the arrangement that promises to make the song a big hit.

By JUDITH GICOBI

Wanuri Kahiu, the director of the controversial Rafiki film, has pleaded with delegates at Davos to purchase the cinema tickets to support women directing movies in Hollywood and worldwide.

Wanuri was addressing a World Economic Forum in Davos in a session that was webcast on Wednesday.

Her call comes after women failed to make it to the best director category nomination for the 2020 Oscars.

 

 

“If there’s a female director and you want to see more female-directed films, buy tickets. Do it for the data. Because this is the data for the industry that allows us to continue to make work,” wanuri said.

She further added that one didn’t have to watch the film,

“I’m just saying you have to buy the tickets. Do it for the data, and do it for us, because we’re doing the work, she added during a panel on artistic freedom.”

The case on the controversial Rafiki film which was banned in Kenya is still pending and a court ruling will be given soon.

‘I paid over Ksh 5m in dowry for Anerlisa Muigai,’ Ben Pol reveals

By JUDITH GICOBI

Anerlisa and Ben Pol met early 2018 but started dating later that year. Though the Keroche heiress has tried to keep her relationship with the musician private.

The two had a traditional wedding in September last year after Ben Pol proposed.

Ben revealed in an interview with Tanzanian media that he had already met his fiancé’s parents and paid the dowry that is equal to a hundred cows.

Going by the math, if the price of one cow is Ksh 50,000, then hypothetically, the round figure paid as dowry is around Ksh 5million.

Speaking to Tanzania’s Ijumaa newspaper, he adds,

“what many do not understand is that when it comes to planning a wedding, privacy should be paramount. Not everything should be announced online. So, I’ll urge those pressurizing us to wed to be patient and see what the outcome of our relationship will be. And when we tie the knot, they will still know, given a wedding is something that you can’t do in secrecy.”

The musician further adds, “we are planning to tie the knot formally and start a family.”

Adding,

Currently, I am in the process of putting things right, but if you’re asking if the wedding plans are still on, the answer is: ‘yes, they are.’”
