I was warned against building my mother a house – Comedian Jalang’o

Published

on

Comedian Felix Odiwuor alias Jalang’o has revealed that he was warned against building his mother a house.

Addressing Alex Mwakideu, Jalang’o narrated that after his father passed away, he decided to build his mother a house but was told it was against Luo traditions.

Jalang’o explained that according to the Luo, it was taboo for him to build her house and flouting it meant courting death.

The only remedy, he said, was for her to get another man before moving to the house. The funny bone, however, shrugged the demands aside and went ahead.

Mwakideu mimi naweza kwambia hakuna kitu kama uganga. Hakuna kitu kama hiyo. Sijawahi amini kwa sababu unajua kuna zile tamaduni za ndani kabisa ambazo watu wanakuambia hii haiwezi fanyika kabla hii ifanyike. Kama wajaluo tuko na utamaduni mwingi sana ya kwanza ilikuwa siwezi mjengea mamangu nyumba.

“Nikawaambia kama mungu ambaye namatumikia ataniua kwa sababu nimemjengea mamangu nyumba, wacha nife. Mpaka sahii nangoja kufa kwa sababu nimemjengea mamangu nyumba.

“Kwa sababu wanasema kijana mkubwa ndio anafanya sijui nini na unapomjengea kwa sababu babako alikufa lazima apate mzee mwingine ndio awe mzee wa kambo ndio aweze kumtoa mama kwa nyumba yake kwenda kwa hio ingine…

“So mimi na kichwa yangu mbaya nikamnunulia mamangu shamba na nikamjengea watu wa kijiji wakalia najiingiza kwa shida nikawaambia wacha nife. Mpaka sahii niko na wewe hapa,” said Jalang’o.

Touted as one of the richest radio presenters in the republic, Jalang’o lost his father just hours after landing his first gig at Kiss 100.

“When my dad died he told me one thing, I have a letter from my dad before he died because I could not even afford to go bury my dad when he died.

“The same day I got my very first gig at Kiss 100 is the same day my dad died. Caroline called me and told me Jalang’o you are replacing Nyambane when she hung up my mom called and told me your dad is gone. That’s how sad it was for me,” he narrated.

Nick Mutuma breaks silence over sexual assault claims 

Published

BY KEVIN KOECH

Kenyan actor Nick Mutuma has broken his silence, 4 years after he was accused of sexually assaulting a woman in a viral Twitter thread.

In a statement posted to Twitter on Monday, Mutuma said the resurfacing of the 2016 allegations had presented a week-long nightmare to him and his family.

“The allegations that came out against me in 2017 have since resurfaced and have taken a toll on me… they have affected my family and sadly continue to affect the people in my personal and professional life,” his statement reads.

He acknowledged that although he had had his own share of imperfections, he was not the monster a section of Tweeps had portrayed him to be.

“I do not want my silence to be interpreted as guilt or complacency, yet I do not want to speak and have my words misrepresented, I have been tried at the court of public opinion and ruled guilty by persons with malicious intentions,” he added.

According to Mutuma, a section of social media ne’er -do-wells were hell-bent on tearing down a career that he has fought tooth and nail to build for the last 10 years.

“They have been trying to discredit all my hard work, and they have done their best to see that my dreams never come true,” he explained.

“I would like to categorically state that I am against any form of abuse against women and I have always been,”

Rachel Mwangi whose partner has written the viral thread has since clarified that the matter- whose truth has been subject of online debate- was put to bed in 2017.

“In 2016, there was an incident between Nick Mutuma and I, that my partner KoomeGitobu posted on social media in November 2017, Mutuma reached out to us shortly after, and we resolved it amicably and privately in 2017,” Ms Mwangi wrote on Twitter.

Mutuma is currently riding the coattails of the global success of two of his films- Disconnected and Sincerely Daisy- which recently premiered on Netflix

My children saved me from suicide, reveals YouTuber Maureen Waititu

Published

on

There is no beating around the bush – lawyer and YouTuber Maureen Waititu has beaten depression and is off medication,  a year after sinking into an ensnaring dark web of lifedraining sadness. Bravely opening up about her battle with depression, while explaining the peaks and troughs that come with the mental health condition, Waititu disclosed that she seriously considered suicide, twice.

“See that smile?” posed the mother of two as she drew attention to a photo she posted to her over 339,000 Instagram followers where she detailed in the caption what helped her get through it. “That smile was covering severe sadness and depression, in fact, the following day I attempted suicide for the second and last time ever! One year later, I’ve beat depression, got off depression medication, fought several silent battles and won, fought off cyberbullying and saw my life change right in front of my eyes as I achieved things I never even imagined would be possible.”

She explained, “A lot of people ask me how I did it but mostly I have no answer as this is a very personal journey. However, looking back to this period, I remember I was driving back from Murang’a and I heard my baby Kai who was only a year few months old say ‘mama’ for the first time. Lexi on the other hand was days to turning 4 years old – this child is an angel I tell you. He saved my life over and over again and the thought of leaving my precious boys allowed me to snap out of my suicidal state- and fight for my two boys and myself even though I felt like my world was coming to an end, weh! Never again.”

Waititu then revealed that seeking treatment actually saved her life. She stated, “It wasn’t easy, some days were dark, some hopeful. I took the healing journey extremely seriously and without shame, I took my medication and saw my psychiatrist religiously and without fail. But guess what? My faith and trust in God, my determination to heal, self-education, a good support system and keeping an open mind accelerated my healing. I never thought that I’d say this but I have seen the other side of healing and it’s beautiful!”

The personality went on in the October 17, 2020 post to offer comfort, recommended being kind to one’s self, and pleaded for access to mental health treatment, safe spaces to talk and development of support structures. “For anyone feeling lost and broken, trust me when I tell you this, better days are always ahead. Just don’t give up on yourself and accept help where it’s offered. Pray, pray pray! God is always listening and He is aware of our pain and in Faith, He always comes through… I hope this encourages someone. Let’s normalize addressing mental health and let’s support and be kind to each other,” she wrote.
