VIDEO: Akothee switches to gospel

Published

on

Singer Akothee has shared details that drove her to quit secular music and become a gospel musician.

The singer said there is so much bile in secular music and she is trading places for the tranquility in church.

She said she realized that its only in church where there is no hate and jealousy among musicians.

“In the secular industry you don’t know if someone you are speaking to is your enemy or supporter. We don’t have cheerleaders in this industry, we have killers of talent.

“I applause all the gospel artistes because you know in church all you need is Jesus. The church is always full, that’s why I want to jump to gospel because it’s easier for me,” Akothee said during an appearance  at the relaunch of EMB,  a music label owned by gospel singer Kevin Bahati.

Akothee blasted Kenyan musicians, claiming their unprofessional conduct had discouraged her from starting a record label.

“I will never start a label because Kenyan artistes are the most indiscipline, disrespectful, ungrateful and dishonest people.”

The musician also clarified her act of mobilizing millions of shillings to buy food donations for hunger stricken people in Turkana was not a publicity stunt .

“I did not go to Turkana to prove the government wrong, that it’s not working. I share a special bond with Turkana. That is where I was born and brought up. For very many years my parents worked there as administrators. Turkana is very dear to me and I couldn’t just sit and do nothing.”

Published

on

Radio presenter Mwalimu has not been having an easy time with the Sailors Gang gang especially now that there is beef. This comes as a big surprise considering the fact that she discovered the boys; back when Gengetone had just become a thing in the entertainment industry.

A few months later, the presenter and Sailors Gang gang apparently can’t see eye to eye due to a few reasons here and there. The whole drama however started after Mwalimu Rachel was accused of squeezing one of Sailors gang friend’s balls.

Sailors Gang preforming

Yes, this was more than drama but a real case that saw the presenter present her self in court for the hearing. Since then, nothing has been the same between the former manager and the Gengetone artists.

Accused of refusing with their YouTube logins

Well, this past weekend rumor spread around claiming that Mwalimu Rachel had refused to hand over Sailors Gang Gang Youtube channel. According to reports, the presenter asked for Ksh1.5 million in order for her to grant them access; now that they are under the Blackmarket record.

She tweeted;

Smart ladies run businesses. Not their mouths. Nawapemda wote! I shall address the nation later my loves. Mimi sikimbilii maneno. Kwa sasa tuchape kazi.

The presenter went on to add;

Put emotions to the side when running business.

Nick Mutuma breaks silence over sexual assault claims 

Published

on

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
