This is the new life of former TPF hottie Esther Nabaasa

Published

on

Her breakthrough was when she was signed by UG Records and during that time, being signed to a record label was a big plus for an artiste.

Esther Nabaasa had just won the second edition of the Tusker Project Fame (TPF). She was highly believed to be the next big thing after Juliana and Iryn Namubiru.

“I want my music to hit the international scene. I want to be marketable all over the world,” were her words soon after returning from Kenya where she had participated in the competition along with 18 other contestants.

But that did not happen. Nabaasa’s singing career lasted as long as her one-year record deal with Universal Music Group in South Africa.

QUIT MUSIC

There were stories that she had quit music after just a few songs such as Sing From the Nile, Yoga Yoga and Watwala Omutima Gwange.

Word then was that she was going to concentrate on her marriage to producer Michael Fingers. The couple have two children now and Nabaasa never completely quit music.

She settled for songwriting and she wrote some of the songs on Bebe Cool’s Go Mama album that was released in 2014 as well as Juliana’s Bits and Pieces.

Besides that, she also does music for commercials and last we heard is that she hit a jackpot writing one of the songs in Natasha Museveni Karugire’s 27 Gunsmovie.

The last words of John DeMathew

Published

on

The late Kikuyu Benga musician John Mwangi Ng’ang’a, popularly known as John DeMathew left a message to Mt Kenya region and to the upcoming musicians ten minutes before he met his death on Sunday when his car rammed a lorry.

DeMathew, who spoke shortly after conducting a fundraiser in aid of fellow musician Petr Kigia’s sons at Metro Fill club in Thika town, urged the upcoming musicians to humble themselves and unite in order to succeed in life.

In an audio recorded by his friends, DeMathew stressed on the need for unity and humility amongst musicians.

The popular artiste, who is also regarded by many as the Agikuyu seer and prophet, urged Mr Kenya region not to be deceived to reject proposed changes in the Constitution to pave way for the establishment of a prime minister’s position, saying the seat does not belong to ODM leader Raila Odinga but to all the communities in Kenya, central Kenya included.

“The new upcoming artistes must humble and unite to grow and learn how to interact with each other so that they can succeed in their later life. In politics, I urge the community not to be deceived that the position of prime minister belongs to ODM party leader Raila Odinga. It can also be taken by any other community and it is good for peaceful coexistence after the presidential election,” DeMathew said.

He added that should Mr Odinga clinch the proposed premier’s seat, a time for him to leave would come where other leaders from other communities would clinch the position

“Even if Mr Odinga gets the premier’s seat, he will come and go but the seat will belong to other communities. We should understand that the system we want for the country is for cohesion to prevail and we must ensure that we establish the prime minister’s position to avoid the winner-takes-it-all situation and to avert post-election violence.

“Today its Raila who is protesting over the presidential election, tomorrow it will be Mr Kalonzo (Musyoka) and the next day it will be Mr Kenyatta. The (prime minister’s) position is good for the country,” he said.

He added that if that will be done, peace will prevail and the Agikuyu traditional ceremonies like circumcision of boys and other meetings will be peaceful.

One of his closest friends, Mr Gilbert Maina alias Maina Baba, said they did not know that he was bidding them goodbye when he talked to them about the issues.

“He insisted on the two main issues – about upcoming artistes and the debate on a referendum – and we did not know that those were his last words. Ten minutes after leaving us at the venue, we received the sad news of the tragic accident,” Mr Maina told the Nation.

He added that DeMathew was jovial and excited since Saturday, something he found unusual about the musician.

“He has not been talkative but since Saturday, he had developed excitement which we could not tell where it came from. In fact, during the harambee, DeMathew even greeted everybody and took over the ceremony despite his shy character. It is like he knew he was leaving us for good,” Mr Maina said.

DeMathew’s producer Thomas Ndegwa alias Ndegwa Wa Gatiti said the musician had about 15 songs which he was planning to release this year.

On Monday, the funeral planning committee visited his Mukurwe home in Gatanga, Murang’a County and announced that DeMathew’s two wives had agreed to cooperate to give their husband a descent send-off.

The committee’s chairman Muheria Kairuki said the two wives – Sarafina Wairimu and Caroline Waithira – would be informed of everything that will be done during the planning of the burial ceremony. He added that a post-mortem examination will be done Tuesday.

“We have agreed that we shall involve the two wives in the burial plans and that we shall do it together,” he said.

Leaders from across the country led by President Uhuru Kenyatta have mourned the artiste as a brilliant one who played a big role in promoting the African cultural heritage.

Published

on

Genge rapper Mejja is in love again after enduring the heartbreak of being ditched by his wife of five years through a text message.

Sometime last year, Mejja, who makes the trio of The Kansoul group, revealed that he battled depression and at one point contemplated taking away his life.

This was after his wife of five years and the mother of his daughter dumped him via text message despite them not having any misunderstanding, according to the artiste.

“We had not disagreed. Actually we were so happy. I was in Thika and I got her message asking me if I had arrived well. I told her yes and the next thing she told me was ‘move on with your life’” Mejja revealed in a past interview.

The artiste said that all his efforts to salvage his marriage never bore fruit as his estranged wife kept ignoring his calls.

The situation drove Mejja into depression and for a whole year he struggled to come to terms with the reality of his collapsing marriage.

IN LOVE AGAIN

However, Mejja now seems to have moved on.

On Sunday, he formally introduced his new girlfriend to his fans via Instagram.

Mejja shared a picture of him and his new bea accompanied with a very telling caption.

“Beauty and The Beast. Nikipeleka msupa Pango kununua digital kwa vaite. ALipenda Mjeshi hivo hivo Ghettoh lifestyle na ma ghettoh queen Watu wa comments najua mtaanza story ya mali ya umma huyu ni private property lol…” Mejja wrote.
