Love brewed on Instagram in America

Published

on

They say love can be found in the strangest of places; at a funeral, social gathering or while on holiday.

For FAITH CAREN MOCHE and gospel musician BILLY FRANK, their love was found and blossomed on the Internet.

Faith lets us in on their four years of love and finding a common purpose abroad

When Faith Caren Moche commented on her friend’s post on Instagram one fine afternoon in 2016, she didn’t know her post would attract the attention of Billy Frank, a top gospel artiste in Kenya. Frank would afterwards send a message to her inbox and from then on, their friendship began.

“He would check up on me virtually from time to time and then one day, he asked for my number. We started talking more frequently, got to know each other and developed a friendship,” she narrates.

Billy expressed his interest in pursuing marriage with her early in their conversations. In fact, most of their talks were about marriage.

“He shared with me YouTube sermons about marriage and slowly, the idea of me marrying him sank in. I loved how humble, yet confident he was and, especially the fact that he was God-fearing. Early 201 7, he asked to meet me in person in North Carolina where I was living at the time, with him coming all the way from Kansas, where he lived,” she reminisces.

Saying ‘I Do’

That meetup was the beginning of their courtship. And after two years of a long-distance relationship.

“I enjoyed his music so much and one time I posted on Instagram that I wished to get married to someone who sang like him. I had totally forgotten about that post until he pointed it out to me when we were dating. What a coincidence1 We choose to believe that it was destiny though. For me that was evidence that God not only hears our prayers, but He even listens to our causal wishes and answers them if it is His will,” narrates Faith.

The two said ‘I Do’ at a colourful garden ceremony on September 28 in North Carolina, US. For Faith, it was like a fairy tale asking for something in prayer and getting exactly what you had wished for.

Faith says while conducting his various worship ministries in the US, Billy tries not to affiliate himself with any specific church and did as much as he could with different churches, which made him build a proper foundation for his music ministry.

“That was the foundation he built and so it wasn’t hard moving around spreading the gospel in the US. He also did this in Kenya where he pretty much went to JCC and still served at Maximum Miracle Centre where he served closely with pastor Andrew Muiru until he relocated to the US in 2014. He never struggled with the idea that he couldn’t attend another church or serve in different places of worship, unless he and the congregation did not believe in the same principles. He strongly believes that he is called to serve the body of Christ and not a church. But at the same time, he has a home church called Neema Church in Dallas Texas where he serves and it’s his first priority,” explains Faith.

And with God’s grace, as she puts it, Billy Frank has been able to influence a number of churches, which now have an open door approach towards him.

Being his manager He also has something good baking in the oven as far as his personal music goes. His ultimate goal is to produce music that reaches not only Kenyans, but can minister to people internationally.

Having had a dad who was a pastor, Faith feels like she was prepared all along for the role of being Billy Frank’s missing rib. Besides being a physician assistant, Faith is currently in the worship team with him and is also his personal assistant in all matters including his record label.

She says being a worship leader at her church back in North Carolina made it an easy and smooth transition into ministering with the love of his life.

“I’m still learning how to best help him with his record label and I’m looking forward to our company growing and helping other artistes expand their ministry,” she says The two have no plans to relocate back to their motherland for now, but plan to raise their family in the US.

When it comes to being a wife of a celebrity, Faith is glad that they are living in the US where she doesn’t have to be under pressure because of her husband’s status.

“Well, I haven’t experienced any challenges in having a celebrity husband here in the US because people don’t have that mentality here. We all treat each other the same. But I can imagine things would probably be different in Kenya,” she says in conclusion.

ABOUT BILLY FRANK

• His passion for music started when he was a child, his greatest inspiration being his father, also a musician.

• He wanted to be a pilot, but ended up loving music.

• Faith has a younger brother named Billy like her husband. Frank and Faith’s dad share the same birthday.

• His worship songs include Umeniweza, Milele Daima, Kama si Wewe, Kwa Sababu Yakoamong others.

• He was awarded the Best Audio Producer in the 2012 Agma award, the biggest gospel African music awards held annually in UK, and the best audio producer east Africa by Groove Awards.

VIDEO: Kenyan woman says “hii Quarantine imetenganisha Mipango ya Kando na Wababa”

Published

on

A video of a Kenyan woman appealing to “Wababa” to be more humane during the Corona Lockdown has gone Viral. The unidentified woman says the situation is so dire for mipango ya kando (side chics) that they have no idea what to do.

“Sasa hata hatuwezi piga picha zile tulikuwa tunapost hapo mbeleni,” she says. ‘Hata kuongea kwa simu sasa hatuwezi ongea juu mko na mawife zenu,” she adds.

She appeals to the men to at least send their girlfriends some money minus 30 per cent.

We can’t even post those photos we used to post with the caption: Naivasha Manenos. Hii quarantine siyo kupenda kwetu. What are we supposed to do?” she poses.

Although the video seems to have been meant to be some sort of  comic relief, there is a growing concern among Kenyans over what people who hitherto were fully dependent on others are supposed to do in the face of the Corona Pandemic which has literally stopped most activities around the world.

Photo of William Ruto’s look alike weeding cabbage farm goes viral

Deputy President William Ruto has been missing in action especially after the coronavirus outbreak which toned down the political temperatures in the country.

Kenyans have been making a myriad of speculations of his whereabouts with many thinking he had retreated to Sugoi to tend to his chickens and crops.

Photo of William Ruto's look alike weeding cabbages goes viral

William Ruto Look alike

On Thursday, April 2, a photo of Ruto’s look like weeding a cabbage farm surfaced online and netizens could not keep calm with DP’s fans betting their last penny that the man was Ruto himself since the two individuals had a striking resemblance.

Though we hate to disappoint Ruto’s supporters, the man in the viral photo was Kennedy Lagat, who, coincidentally, looks up to the second in command as his role model.

In the picture, Langat was dressed in white pants and a grey t-shirt and though his face could not be seen clearly since he was bending down digging, his head and complexion were exact duplicates of Ruto’s.

Many Facebook users could not concede that the man was not the Sugoi hustler.

One user identified as Charirt Ben said the man in the picture was actually Ruto who was practising social distance because he had successfully stopped reggae.

“He’s seriously practising social distance this corona thing helped him stop reggae!” she said.

Ray Kamau said the man in the photo was undoubtedly the second in command and there was no doubt about that.

“This is our own hustler, we do not want confusion,” Kamau said.

Reginalda Blake said the head of the man in the picture had spoken enough since it was similar to the DP’s.

Here are more comments:

This comes a day after Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria claimed President Uhuru Kenyatta was greatly missing his deputy, William Ruto.

While reacting to Uhuru’s video conference with COVID-19 survivors, the Gatundu South lawmaker claimed the communication was not only unnecessary but also an indicator the president was a lonely man who was, perhaps, looking for company.
