Sh60 million house: At home with Ringtone

Published

on

Ringtone, this gospel star that has brought you hits like Muziki ni Dawa, Gospel Inabamba, Maisha and last year’s massive hit Tenda Wema has a larger-than-life image.

Aside from his state-of- the-art rides, he boasts a maisonette in the leafy suburbs of Runda. However, this time round Pulse sneaks into his other home in Karen, a ten-bedroom crib, where we do the quick fire.

Pulse: This property is worth more than Sh60 million which could really be a huge sum for an artiste. Just how did you acquire it?

Ringtone: That is a good question. The owner had actually abandoned this property for years and so by the time I was getting the house, the prize had depreciated. I had to do a lot to bring it to its current state.

P: How big is the land it stands on?

R: This is a half an acre.

P: You are still young and single: How on earth do you use ten bedrooms?

R: (Laughs): It is rather obvious that I cannot sleep in ten different bedrooms. As you might be aware, I support a number of children homes and so to raise money for that, when I get foreign guests, I allow them to stay over for bed and breakfast and then the proceeds I get from that I put into charity.

P: What stands out most…for you?

R: I should say everything stands-out. Every bedroom is different from the other in terms of design and the furniture we have in there.

I have a Jacuzzi in my master bedroom as well as a reading area, which I have also converted into prayer room. The bathtubs are also modern.

P: We notice that the living room as well as the dining area is colourful. What informed that design aspect?

R: I have a professional designer who fits everything. Basically, like I have said, you will get a different mood in every room.

P: Why won’t you use the house for showbiz; like put up a studio or a music school?

P: This is a home and I live in a residential area where we don’t allow such. The only time I have many visitors coming in is when I am throwing a party for the children I support.

P: Is this your dream home?

R: I thank God for this property and I continue to believe him for better. He says in his word; “Ask and you shall be given…seek and you shall find…”

Grace Ekirapa: I’ve been unable to access DJ Mo since cheating scandal

Published

on

Grace Ekirapa, who hosts NTV’s gospel show Crossover 101, has revealed that she had not been in touch with her co-host DJ Mo since rumors he was cheating on his wife Size 8 rocked the internet a fortnight ago.

Ever since reports emerged that DJ Mo, real name Sammy Muraya, was cheating on his wife of seven years Size 8 causing a social media frenzy, the DJ was barred from co-hosting the show with Ekirapa and is thought to be busy trying to glue his marriage together.

Weighing in on the scandal rocking the marriage of her co-host, Ekirapa revealed that she had been trying unsuccessfully to reach out to DJ Mo.

“I haven’t spoken to him and to be honest. It’s been hard for me to get to him. My phone calls haven’t been going through, I know it’s been difficult for him and I think when he is ready he will talk to me. Meanwhile the show has been going on without him but that’s the management’s decision.” Ekirapa revealed during an Interview with Radio Jambo.

She, however, felt DJ Mo should be given a second chance.

“What I will have to say is, when you get saved you won’t stop sinning, you can’t be perfect but there will be consequences. We make mistakes. DJ Mo is an amazing guy and if there’s a chance of working with him again, I would love that.” She added.

The singer also delved into the rumors that once emerged that she was having an affair with DJ Mo, a married man.

“During the launch of Crossover is when the rumor started. We had done a couple of photo shoots on different days and most of the time his hands was on my shoulder or mine on his and so people got talking.” she explained.

‘Our marriage is currently in a tough space’ Says Vivianne, Sam West responds

Published

on

Motivational speaker-cum music manager Sam West has responded after his wife Vivianne hinted that they are going through marital problems.

According to a social media post by Vivianne, people always assume they are a perfect couple but they are not.

Speaking exclusively to Mpasho, Sam West said he hopes things will work out for them.

‘We just have a few domestic challenges but we are working on them. We juts need prayers.’

Asked if this is just clout chasing considering his wife just released a new jam, he responded

‘No it’s not kiki, it’s just a coincidence.’

Sam Was responding to the post below by his wife Vivianne

‘Today I want to be very candid.. nataka niongee wazi.. The world first met  when he decided to propose on the biggest TV show in the country.

I was shocked and this was unexpected for me.

I couldn’t say yes or no so I sat there in front of 40mill Kenyans hoping the world would swallow me but it didn’t, so I smiled.

First forward I have worked with Sam West and been his woman for 4 years.

So to get to the point this post is for you who understands that what society has labeled as marriage is one of the hardest things to exist in.

We are two humans who have learnt the hard way. We are friends and we will always care about one another. Our union has however taken a kick to the stomach.’

Vivianne added

‘ IG in-laws can attest to the fact that I haven’t posted Sam on my feed for the past one month or so.

We felt it would be important to share the truth that marriage can get difficult..

Social media couples have created illusions of perfect marriages which we feel are quite misleading.

To be honest we have ignored each other’s needs in our union . Expectations and control took over our relationship. We are in a tough space and to be honest we are hoping we will overcome the current challenge.

Hii sio Kiki. For those who love even one of us remember us in your prayers. May God’s will be done.

BY KEVIN KOECH

Kenyan singer Otile Brown has warned his loyal fans to be wary of Facebook operating using his name.

The singer put out the message through his official Instagram account after a few of his fans claimed that he had defrauded them of their hard-earned money with fake promises.

Over the past few years, there has been a surge of con artists who scam crazy fans of their money using celebrities names mostly on Facebook.

They ask for money in exchange for certain services, i.e. business cash boosts or fake gifts.

Otille Brown informed his fans that he does not have a Facebook account as his was hacked a few years ago.

He said that he is trying hard to get it back and would inform his fans through his Instagram account once he does.

“I repeat, I do not have a facebook account at the moment, if I manage to get mine back I will inform you all from this account,” he wrote.

Otille Brown went on to make it clear that he does not and has never asked for cash directly through any of his social media accounts.

Otille appreciated the love of his fans; however, he asked them to be smart while dealing with netizens.

“These are the three conmen, they are a team working together. Chuma chenu ki motoni. We are working too,” wrote Otille Brown followed by a list of three names and phone numbers of the alleged conmen.
