‘I was broken after losing radio job’ cries Jimmi Gathu



Veteran radio presenter Jimmi Gathu says about two years ago, he hit rock bottom.

The media personality who started ruling the airwaves in the 90s reveals that he lost himself when he was shown the door at his former workplace, Nation FM.

He told Grace Msalame on NTV’s Unscripted With Grace;

It was bad. I lost myself. I lost faith in myself. I was broken. At the height of my game, at the point where I was told go home, my show was the biggest radio show in the country. And even at that, I was told, no, go home. I had never been without a job for 30 years. And the first envelope that came out was mine. So that was hard.

Adding that;

At one point you are that guy who can take your kids anywhere. And then one day you can’t. It’s painful. People think this guy squandered his money.

Gathu says his wife was his support system, a person that helped him go out of his depressed thoughts and look for a plan B.

I figured myself out two years ago. I found myself, I discovered what my brand meant. When I came in there were no mentors, no one taught me how to handle myself. That’s why three years ago when I hit a snag, I dropped badly because I didn’t know how to pick myself up.

Gathu is approaching 50 years, he says he once wanted to be a preacher of the word.

At some point in my life, my plan was to be a preacher, a street preacher. I fasted and prayed for 31 days, drunk only water. In October 1987-88. Didn’t get the answer that I was looking for and then went through life.

He is coming back to the media industry and the only hints he gives is that he is going back to where he started.

Two years when I was down, that memory came back and I went back and I told God, I can’t fix things. If it wasn’t for my wife, things wouldn’t be like this right now.

An award that earned the 46-year-old 100, 000 dollars in prize money.

“Thank you for that song, we are all excited with what the Lord has done in your life, of course in the life of many others standing with you here we just love you. And I told them, you just had a baby! So, everybody got excited,” said Pastor Chris.

With over 200 songs to her name, Sinach got married to Joe Egbu, a Christ Embassy’s Pastor, in 2014.

Watch Vivian, hubby Sam West reveal the challenges they face as a blended family



Singer Vivian and her hubby Sam West have opened up about their relationship and some of the challenges they face in their blended family.

The two while appearing in an interview with K24 news anchor, Betty Kyallo, said it was not an easy job raising their two kids gotten from previous relationships.

“One of the key things with blended families, you have to understand who you are. You are different species, it is not a normal family. Because one you are trying to connect with your partner as two individuals and now you also have other people as well. You have a child, she has a child and the two of them also have to integrate,” said Sam West.

The couple revealed that their biggest challenge was trying to find the best way to incorporate their different parenting skills and come up with one formula that works for the both of them.

“We have different ways in which we were used in bringing up our children differently, so that is also an issue because maybe there is something he will see maybe me and Natalie and he will be like why don’t you try this and it’s easy to take offence with that. And maybe I will do the same with him and Ty and it’s a girl and a boy, so also their behaviours are completely different,” said Vivian.

The Fell Me hit maker started dating Sam West who also doubles up as her manager sometime in 2017.

They later celebrated their traditional wedding in March 2018.
