Tahidi High has revealed details on why she left the show.

Speaking to Parents Magazine, Jolene stated that she left the show after getting pregnant. She went on to say that she tried hiding the pregnancy up to four months when she couldn’t do it anymore.

“I had to leave the show when I was four months pregnant because I’d bought so many skirts and it was getting harder to hide the bump,” she said.

Jackie also dismissed rumours her marriage to Kennedy Njogu was on a rough patch after the couple pulled down all photos of each other from their respective social media accounts.

The mother of one said that they chose to remain private as a couple so as to avoid attracting negativity.

“We celebrated our third year of being legally married in May this year but I understand that with the decision to not post him, it raised questions,” she said adding that, “It was something we decided on together. Back when we were dating, we were all over social media and lovey-dovey but after a while, we realized that we were opening up our marriage to people which could after us negatively so we stopped.

“Not that it’s wrong for those who post, it’s just not for us. He understands that my job involves putting myself out there and I understand his job and his personality so it’s never an issue with us,” she explained.

About four months ago, the actress shocked many Kenyans with her skincare routine. She admitted to using her morning urine to wash her face to get rid of breakouts.

“There’s a time I had a breakout and I tried my morning pee, that thing works miracles. Wash your face with morning pee, it works miracles,” she said.

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

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.”

Bien Baraza’s wife Chiki Kuruka has for the first time revealed that she met her husband through a friend, Emmanuel Jambo.

Chiki showered Emmanuel, a celebrity and award-winning photographer with love, thanking him for being the best friend one can ever have.

In a length post, the fitness coach-cum-radio presenter wrote,

A story of friendship. Dear @emmanueljambo, You are the force behind so much of what is my life. You introduced me to my husband, you drove me for hours to find my dog, you found us our house. I have cried to you countless times, and laughed with you even more. You are to me, the definition of goodness in this world, and to say I love you doesn’t even come close to the admiration I have for your heart, the respect I have for your soul and the excitement I have for the blessings that will certainly come your way. Happy birthday to my brother, my friend, my family. More Whiskey, more awful dancing, and more picture perfect moments to come. ❤.
