Nice Wanjeri after being called ugly: I had a very low self-esteem

Published

Actress Nice Wanjeri has opened up how being called ugly while growing up lowered her self esteem.

The mother of one, who parted ways with her baby daddy a few months ago, shared how she grew up in a negative setting that also ruined her childhood. She promised herself that her daughter grows up differently.

As a child, I grew up around a lot of negativity. I vividly remember the number of times I’d overhear some relatives claim that I would not amount to anything. They didn’t care that I could hear them and that they are speaking to my spirit. ‘kaschana kana macho kubwa na kamwili ni kijiti, mdomo kiherehere tu.’ This really messed up my self confidence.”

She went on:

“At a young age, I vowed to bring up my young ones in an environment full of positive vibes, letting them know that they do not need people’s approval to know their worth, intelligence or beauty.
I went through it so that they don’t have to. The cycle had to be broken, break yours too.”

In previous interviews, the actress has talked about how the ordeal affected her personality and almost ruined her career.

“There are those who go home crying about it and it is over, but as for me, I had a very low self-esteem when I was young, until 2016,” she said. “It still comes back at times, but you have to live with it. I used to go to a place, nikiambiwa I am slender, I would not sleep.”

“When you laugh at others and scorn them, the same happens to you because others will also laugh at one or two of your features.”

Willy Paul: I’m not selling potatoes

Published

Controversial singer Willy Paul has denied claims that he has ventured into potato business to supplement his income during these tough economic times brought about by coronavirus pandemic.

“Me, potato business? Ni manager wangu ndio amefungua hiyo biz. Ako na shamba kubwa Nakuru so yeye ndio ana supply mahoteli kubwa na masoko” the former gospel singer, who ironically is set to drop his new album titled ‘Songs of Solomon’, clarified.

He, however, notes that he runs other businesses in the city other than music to make sure he stays afloat.

Pozee also addressed reports that Diamond Platnumz record label Wasafi (WCB) has been trying to make him its first foreign signee.

“Why would I be signed by Wasafi when I have a label Saldido International. Sijawahi kuwa na deal na Wasafi, tumefanya tu biashara za ma-songs” he explained.

The singer also addressed his beef with gospel singers Ringtone who has been his major critic as well as Bahati who has since gone ‘rogue’.

“Mimi sina shida na huyo kijana (Ringtone). Kuhusu bwana ya Diana, hatujawahi kosana na Bahati, mimi naheshimu bwana za watu sana,” he chided.

In a separate interview when he was hosted on Jalang’o show, Pozee confirmed to have quit gospel music claiming he was forced to make the decision because of “gospel industry cartels” who weren’t happy with his success.

His latest jam Roho Mbaya featuring Tanzanian top singer Ruby is the first song on his upcoming album Songs of Solomon.
