The local showbiz industry is flooded with many celebrities but most of the times we talk much about the successful and influential women forgetting about men, especially those behind these women.

Well, we have married men, single, divorced and bachelors who also play a major role in our showbiz industry.

After doing an article about women who are thriving after parting ways with their husbands, I thought it would be interesting to do a list of the men who have made it after separating from their wives.

Well, from Dennis Okari to J Blessing, here are the Kenyan men who are thriving after parting ways with their wives.

1. Dennis Okari

He married Betty Kyallo in a colorful wedding ceremony back in 2015. It was termed the wedding of the year but six months later, they broke up.

Betty moved on with life and apart from being a top presenter at K24, she is also the CEO of a highly-rated salon in the city.

Okari, on the other hand, has been busy with his career at NTV and besides that, he is a preacher and motivational speaker. He preaches in schools.

He later got engaged in a hush-hush invite-only affair and said I do to his fiance Naomi Joy.

2. Pastor Eric Omba

The estranged husband to award-winning singer Gloria Muliro. The two broke up in 2015 after staying together for some time with Infidelity cited as the main reason for their breakup.

Gloria’s career continues to flourish while Omba is a video director and pastor.

He later married yet another Congolese gospel singer, Bel and they are blessed with two children.

3. J Blessing

He is a video producer and director who was once married to secular singer-cum-actress Chantelle and were blessed with a son who sadly died. J Blessing is currently working as a directr on The Churchill Show and a mentor on Blaze. He recently bought a new expensive machine, a clear indication that he is doing fine.

“Whenever you find yourself doubting how far you can go, just remember how far you have come. Remember everything you have faced, all the battles you have won, and all the fears you have overcome!”

The gospel singer decided to focus on his career and his music has always dominated the local airwaves.

5. Victor Kanyari

The controversial man of God was exposed in 2014 as a con pastor which saw him face a lot of criticism from the public but that has never deterred him from ‘spreading the gospel’.

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.”
