A US-based Kenyan-born DJ has been listed in this year’s edition of the annual Forbes 30 Under 30.

Ivy Awino, aka DJ Poizon Ivy, who was the first woman ever to DJ a National Basketball Association (NBA) all-star game, was named among the 2020 class of sports world’s brightest and youngest stars.

“I’m just here to make my mama and Kenya proud,” Ivy captioned a photo of herself in celebration of her latest achievement.

Ivy, who is the official NBA’s Dallas Mavericks team entertainment manager, was listed by Forbes alongside Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner, Ryan Bishara (Los Angeles football club VP of business and data strategy), Julie Blanc (Director of Corporate Development Drone Racing League) and Team USA figure skater Nathan Chen among others.

Ivy, 28, was born in Kenya before she moved to the US with her family when she was just five years old. She started deejaying at the age of 19 while in college.

“After I relocated to Dallas after college, I started working with the WNBA team and a friend advised that I ‘shoot my shot’ with the Mavs, who at the time had the position filled. A few months after my inquiry, the position became available and I got the call,” Ivy told Daily Nation in a past interview.

She bagged the Best DJ in East Africa Award at the Afrika Muzik Magazine Awards held in Texas in October this year.

Terence and Milly recently embarked on a weight loss journey and during the interview, she said that they’ve learnt to survive trolls.

You need a thick skin and God’s grace,’ the mother of one said.

The couple narrated how they are often trolled because of their weight.

..I’m here keeping up with the hippos,’ Milly said.

She revealed that she battled with postpartum depression hence the reason why she gained weight.

A postpartum (or postnatal) period begins immediately after the birth of a child as the mother’s body, including hormone levels and uterus size, returns to a non-pregnant state.

The famous couple has been body-shamed online and is no longer bothered. Speaking about worst trolls, the father of three said the meanest words he has heard are;

kitanda inawatoshanga (do you fit in your bed?), how do they nini (have se3). People think we have a metallic bed.

‘Young boys shamelessly hit on me in front of my kids’ – Sarah Kabu

Published

Bonfire adventures boss Sarah Kabu said she feels sorry for the ‘Xaxa’ generation who have turned their attention to trying to win over older women.

Older women dating small boys are known as cougars.

According to Sarah, these boys know where to source such women thus hanging around areas most frequented by the same.

Speaking during an interview on Radio Jambo, the mother of two said she has been a victim.

‘ When I drive around in my range rover there are some young men who know the right points to get rich women so they hang around there.

It’s so funny sometimes these young men try to make moves and sometimes you are with your kids.

Sarah said that these boys do this despite the presence of my kids.

My kids are very intelligent so they understand. It’s very worrying, especially with the young generation.’

Sarah recently talked about how women have been trying to approach her husband via DM after he gifted her a car.

‘AFTER THAT WE DID NOT KNOW THAT WOULD BE A PROBLEM.

NOW EVERY SLAY QUEEN TELLS HIM ‘OOH I WANT A VITZ.’

I HEARD PEOPLE WERE ASKING KWANI NAMPEA DESIGN GANI NDIO ANINUNULIE GARI.’

We have logins to each others social media accounts. During the New Year a slay queen wrote,

‘HAPPY NEW YEAR,  MY GOAL IS TO GO OUT WITH YOU, PLEASE MAKE IT HAPPEN.

Sarah says,

WE MEET SUCH DM’S EVERYDAY.’
