A picture shared by socialite-turned-businesswoman Huddah Monroe showing her as the cover model of a top US fashion and style Magazine Harper’s Bazaar has raised eyebrows on social media.

Huddah shared the picture on Friday of her posing while sitting on a bicycle wearing a purple dress and feather coat. She says she is to be featured in the September issue.

“Thank you Harper’s Bazaar US Magazine for helping me share this experience on the SEPTEMBER ISSUE . I never one day imagined I’d be in one of the Worlds biggest fashion magazine,” wrote Huddah alongside the picture.

This immediately prompted a number of reactions from Kenyans who went on to congratulate her for joining the list of international celebrities featured by the Magazine.

However, a quick inspection by Nairobi News on Harper’s Magazine social media accounts reveal that Award winning American singer and songwriter Alicia Keys is the cover model for the said issue.

In fact, the magazine made the announcement last week on their official Instagram page that Keys will be the star featured on the Magazine’s cover.

“Its official, our September cover star #AliciaKeys is set to take the stage at our 6th annual #BAZAARICONS party during #NYFWin celebration of @carineroitfeld’s,” said Harper’s Magazine on Instagram.

For most magazines, the person featured on the cover, apart from acting as the selling point for the issue also gets the main feature.

TV news anchor Anne Kiguta has announced that she would like to share with her fans more about her life.

However, she draws a line on exposing her children to the limelight.

Anne has three children, one from her previous marriage and fraternal twins with Jomo Gecaga.

Responding to a fan who asked her about her babies, Anne posted a photo of her and her twins but blocked out the faces.

In her response she explained,

“Gosh, so many of you have said this… was the number one response. Well, I will have to let you down on that my loves.”

She added,

“I’m rather traditional (believe it or not) so I’m vehemently against it. My babies are are all still too young, including the eldest, to be on social media.”

Anne continued,

“In fact I really regret having posted my eldest at all. Mummy already has a pretty public life. They deserve their privacy.”

But not to break her fans hearts, Anne promised,

“A reference every once in a while but nothing more than that for a long long time.  Hope  you understand.”

In another post she still emphasized,

“That is my son. Quite the charmer. If only I could tell you half of what they say! But all these are are to me sacred moments…really can’t share much more.”

Not to be daunted though, Anne promised to talk about other aspects of her life.

Arrangements are in place for fans and counterparts to next week mark the 22rd anniversary since the death of Congolese musician Pepe Kalle Yampanya.

The burly baritone voiced singer who collapsed and died on November 29, 1998 in Kinshasa will be remembered as one of the entertainment greats with his Grand Empire Band.

Most of his fans will remember him for some of his popular tunes like ‘Roger Milla’: (dedicated to Cameroonian soccer legend Roger Milla), ‘Moyibi’, ‘Pon Moun Paka Bouge’, ‘Bitoto’ and ‘Amour Pedre’.

Notably, he recorded several collaborations with his long-time counterpart Nyboma Mwandido, who lives in Paris, France. Both had performed together in the early 1970s in Kinshasa.

Though there are no special shows arranged due to the Covid-19 pandemic, some of his former band members including the Kinshasa-based Lofombo Godo will dedicate online shows to him. Lofombo, who is a bass guitarist and producer, also had a stint with the Delta Force band.

Most of the former band members of the Grand Empire Bakuba settled in Europe after Kalle’s death. Among them were Papy Tex (of the ‘Kanda ya Nini’ hit song fame), Elvis Kunku, Ebuya Doris Djuna Mumbafu and Kinanga Boeing.

Jacque Maribe: I suffered two miscarriages before I got my son

BY OLIVIA MUNGWANA

Former Citizen TV news anchor and media personality Jacque Maribe says she lost two pregnancies before she got her son Zahari.
Zahari’s father is comedian Eric Omondi.
In an interview with True Love Magazine, Ms. Maribe said she battled infertility and suffering miscarriages was tough for her as she did not know what was wrong.

What made things worse and what made the media personality think she would never get a child was a disclosure by the doctors that she had suffered from the septate.
A septate uterus is a deformity of the uterus, which happens during fetal development before birth. A membrane called the septum divides the inner portion of the uterus, at its middle.

The condition was to be fixed through surgery but luckily she did not go through it.
“We were lucky we found out earlier so I was told I had to undergo surgery to get rid of it and give ourselves a period and wait and now the baby would have at least enough space to carry to maybe 30 something weeks and don’t have to get to 40. I remember I panicked and I said I’m not gonna do this,” she said.

“It took a while, I can’t remember how many years it was and every day I used to pray and ask God ‘what is too hard for you? I don’t have to have this surgery if you want you can make that thing elastic by whatever miracle but just make it elastic, create space.”
