Sauti Sol´s Bien Aime Baraza and his fiancée, Chiki Kuruka had their nuptials early in the month but in an invites-only event that left many scarred.

The wedding dates in the first place, were meant to confuse the public and avoid giving any sorts of clues to individuals outside the couple´s inner circle.

Either way, the wedding went down as planned at the Pallet Cafe, Lavington, without the public´s involvement on their big day.

Many have since held grudges against them for lack of an invite to their major step in life. However, Bien categorically had this to tell them:

Only those who know me as Alusa, not Bien (were invited). My message to those who are mad at me because they were not invited is, they should hold their weddings and don´t invite me. I am no longer interested in attending weddings because I have attended so many of them. It was my way of celebrating my commitment to my wife.

Fortunate enough, the wedding brought together parents from both sides in what was considered a success.

We had a good time with both families. My dad got the opportunity to interact with Chiki´s dad. They now know each other.

In the current day and age, star-studded and lavish weddings are the order of the day especially among celebrities.

However, the Sauti Sol´s lead vocalist stressed:

Please don´t do a wedding to please your parents. Do it depending on the size of your pockets, how much you can afford. A wedding is the beginning of your life. So don´t spend all your money on a wedding. Do something small and affordable. You better spend much on your honeymoon than at the wedding.

According to him, it makes no sense to have to run into debts just to finance a wedding that is meant to please family, friends and the world at large.

Stop borrowing loans and money from your friends so you can hold a big wedding and go into debt.

Because for them, their wedding budget was pretty within their means:

The budget was less than Ksh 300,000. A good budget for artistes like me.

The newly weds were unable to proceed on their honeymoon following the COVID-19 pandemic but eventually:

If I will go, I will choose an African country.

Wendy Kimani came into the limelight after being in the first runners up of Tusker Project fame by charming fans with her amazing voice.

She has done hit songs such as Haiwi Haiwi and Unajua which she was featured by Israel born artist Gilad. Not much has been out here about the artist but she is back with a boom.

The singer speaking in a virtual interview at Let’s Talk show in Ebru TV shares struggles of relocating to the Netherlands with her mzungu husband having to leave behind friends and family back in Kenya

The mother of one reveals that although she has always had massive support from her husband, living in the Netherlands has not been an easy thing for her.

For starters, she could not find a salon to do her hair in the country and was left with no other choice but to depend on YouTube vlogs to care for her African hair and that is how her journey into content creation started.

Wendy also shared that the biggest culture shock she experienced is lacking the presence of friends and family.

For her, she had to start over with majority white friends and dearly missed her mother. She also felt alone after she gave birth to her son as the Kenyan culture of friends and family looking after a woman who has just given birth was lost.

For her, she yearned for the tradition in which a mother and friends would bring her plenty of food and offer a helping hand around the house once given birth.

Wendy Kimani also shared that her comeback is now final as she does not plan to step out of music again unless because of unavoidable circumstances.

The songbird revealed that the reason she had to step back was as a result of the family as she was married and then had a baby and relocating to a foreign country she had her step back for some time to organize herself.

Wendy also says she is open to sharing more than hair content on her YouTube channel and will also talk about life in the Netherlands on her vlogs.

She is currently comfortable in the country as she has made a lot of Kenyan friends there who make her feel at home.

She also promises to release more music and a virtual live performance for her new song ‘Pagawisha’ as she cannot jet out of the county because of the strict COVID restriction in the country with approximately 10,000 new infections daily.

She, however, reveals that she will be releasing another single after Pagawisha.

Former TV presenter Faith Muturi and husband George Ngugi are expecting their third child.

The mother of two shared the news on social media revealing her pregnancy which is at an advanced stage.

The baby, she said, is a miracle baby due to the fact that after having their second child doctors had told her that chances of her getting another one was almost nil.

“Some of you know our story, that 3 doctors… Not one, not two, but 3 competent and credible doctors we respect, told us on different occasions that our chances of getting a baby were extremely low. BUT GOD🙌🏾 Here we are, 3rd miracle December baby. He did it again. 🙏🏾 Jesus, you do all things well. Be praised, forever and always 💜,” wrote Faith Muturi on Instagram.

She said their third born child is due anytime in December.

The couple got married in 2013 in a colourful ceremony which was attended by the who-is-who in the entertainment industry.

Capital FM has killed its long-running evening show, Hits Not Homework, and replaced it with an all-new programme titled The Hype 984.

Hits Not Homework had been on the air for more than twenty years and targeted the youth with the latest music urban music and conversations relevant to that particular audience.

Its replacement aired for the first time on Tuesday from 7pm to 10pm and was hosted by Wanjira Longauer Mbuthia.

Wanluv, as she is popular known, resigned from the station in 2018 and used to host the mid-morning show, The Fuse.

The new show will air on weekdays from Monday to Thursday grabbing the traditional Hits Not Homework time-slot.

Hits Not Homework was previously hosted by Miss Mandii and Neville alongside DJ Roudge, DJ Joe Mfalme and Joe Kisila.

The show is widely considered one of the most iconic shows ever to air on Kenyan radio as it had some of the biggest names in the industry as its hosts.

From Eve D’Souza, Solo, Joey Muthengi, Amina Abdi Rabar, Anita Nderu and Anne Mwaura to now Wanluv, although she will now host its reincarnated version.

The show was dogged by controversy in 2018 after a talent search dubbed Capital One which was to find a replacement following Amina’s exit turned into a PR nightmare for the station.

Outraged Kenyans called out the station’s decision to hand Nderu the position of hostng the show despite already being a presenter at the station and also a judge of the competition.

Nderu, who was eventually unveiled as the new host alongside Anne Mwaura, Tracy Wanjiru and Jo Kisila, left the show barely a year later, in February 2019, with the station citing expiry of their one-year contracts.
