‘I was suicidal, I attempted twice…’ Maureen Waititu on battling depression

Published

on

Media personality and YouTuber Maureen Waititu is a strong woman. The mother of two has been through a lot in the past year after breaking up with her baby daddy Frankie Kiarie, who later moved on to impregnate Corazon Kwamboka.

Speaking about her personal life for the first time in an interview with Mc Jessy, Maureen said she was a prayerful woman and that’s what keeps her going. She also revealed that she was born again.

“I do not think people know I am born again and very Godly. What people also do not know is I have an army. When I am broken and crying at 1 am there are people who will show up and pray with me. If it wasn’t for prayers, Jessy I’d be dead right now. And not dead in an accident but because of all the stress I have taken in. There is power in prayer,” she said.

Speaking about her failed relationship with her baby daddy, she said all hasn’t been well and at some point, she contemplated suicide.

“I will get personal. I was on anti-depressants since September 2019. I was suicidal I was gone! I attempted twice. You reach a place and you’re like what else? It is the worst place to be at. It took my entire support system. I am in a clique of six girls and two are my left and right, They will even come and take my kids, one each for me to catch a break. My entire support system has made me stop crying tears of pain this days I cry tears of joy,” she narrated.

Antidepressants are medications that can help relieve symptoms of depression, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, and dysthymia, or mild chronic depression, as well as other conditions.

Maureen, who’s a lawyer by profession revealed that her family was devastated by what people were saying about her.

“I owe all my grace to God. I used to be so angry in the past year, then I remember God is slow to anger. The other day my mum called me crying, my family is devastated. She called me crying and told me I am her baby and she knows what I am going through but I should let go and let God. I was not okay. I was like if my family is feeling this way I was wondering how can I be there for them. Seeing your mum cry is the worst thing. Imagine your mum crying because of what people say about you,” she said.

The mother of two recently launched her hair collection Strands and curls by Mo.

Beautiful Anita Nderu leaves Team Mafisi confused after declaring that she is a member of LGBTQ Community

Published

on

Kenyan media personality Anita Nderu has sparked mixed reactions online after announcing she is a member of the LGBTQ community.

 

Nderu, a former presenter at Capital FM, revealed this through a post on her Twitter page on Thursday, saying she hopes her kids will not be subjected to what she has gone through for being LGBTQ.

“I hope my kids never have to go through what I have gone through for being LGBTQ+,” Anita wrote.

Her announcement comes weeks after she came under heavy criticism from social media users for hosting two gay men on her YouTube show. Anita later defended her show, saying her guests were only friends who decided to show their real selves.

In July this year, Nderu said she would not apologise for hosting members of the LGBTQ community on her cooking show, ‘The overdressed cook’.

The video, which was meant for viewers over the age of 18, caught the attention of many, which led to her trending for days.

Speaking to Massawe on Radio Jambo, Anita said she respects people’s opinions but she will not apologise.

She said she has always been open about different things happening around, and so this being pride month, she decided to invite some of her friends on the show.

“I simply asked my friends to come on my web show and be themselves. What any of us have chosen to do on the show is how each of us is. Nothing about my show is scripted. What you see from the guests, food to outcome is what actually genuinely took place,” she said.

Anita has not been secretive about being a staunch supporter of Kenyan lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) persons.

“As people, we should celebrate our differences, encourage authenticity & wonder at the diversity of humanity. We all have a right to love and be loved. Have an amazing day,” she added.

Here is why people think I am gay, Kenyan woman opens up

Published

on

The Kenyan woman had been rumored to be a lesbian for a long time but no one was quite sure whether that was indeed true.

Not that being gay ia an unusual or a new thing. However, a lot of eyebrows are still being raised when it comes to the issue perhaps because homosexuality is considered an illegal activity in Kenya

Sometime in October 2017 Patricia Kihoro was rumored to have been caught pants down in a lesbian threesome with some other Kenyan women.

But now the Popular Vlogger, actress and singer says her efforts to keep her love life private was the sole reason that led to speculations that she was lesbian.

At the time, it was reported that Kihoro was in a relationship with a well-known female Kenyan rapper and as well as another female media personality.

But the 34-year-old says she has always dated men but kept her relationships low key, which explains why people started speculating she was playing for the other ‘team’.

DATING MEN

“For the longest time, I was dating men. If you go through my Instagram over the years I didn’t even hide. I would post people but it wasn’t like lovey-dovey stuff, if you were keen you would see who I was dating at the time. I would post them in the context that this is somebody in my life but I wouldn’t reveal in what way they are in my life. I think of how private I kept that side of my life, people then speculate, start to make up things,” Kihoro said.

Kihoro shot into the limelight back in 2009 when she took part in the singing competition Tusker Project Fame 3 where she was among the finalists.

She later landed a job as a presenter for Homeboyz Radio and also ventured into acting. Over the years she has also been a very active YouTube vlogger and brand influencer.

“I have been accused of being a lesbian but first of all, it is not an accusation, because calling me a lesbian is not an insult as I have met wonderful human beings who are homosexual and are far better than people who have stood in certain standards of judging others.

So that is why I never speak about it. I am who I am, you know! I know what I stand for and my family knows what I stand for,” said Patricia.

Patricia further revealed that her mother has been very supportive of her work and opinion. She reveals that her first interaction with gay people was courtesy of her mother.

“My mother has supported my work from the start and she always respects my opinion. The first people I ever met who were openly gay were friends of my mum. I was probably 16 years and she didn’t make a big deal about it, and therefore I also did not learn that was a big deal,” revealed Patricia.
