Smriti bemoans separation from Mark Masai by Covid-19



NTV news anchor Smriti Vidyarthi has shared just how much Covid-19 pandemic has changed her daily work routine.

Smriti says that, because of coronavirus, she has not seen her co-anchor Mark Masai for four months after they were put on different shifts.

Before Covid-19, she says, she was accustomed to hugging him daily when she got to work and shared a friendly banter before they anchored the 9pm news.

“From seeing this guy 5 days a week, hugging him upon getting to work each day, busting jokes with him ahead of many bulletins, delivering the national news with him every 9pm…To NOT seeing him for FOUR MONTHS!” wrote Sriti Vidyarthi.

“(We’re in separate shifts, thanks #covid19). You cannot blame me for just dying to hug him, when we met at the office today. Sadly, the hug did not happen (again, thanks Covid). Great to see you partner @mark_masai PS. We took off our masks just for this quick snap,” he added.

Vidyarthi and Masai joined the Nation Media Group in 2008 and have been working together as news co-anchors for more than 11 years.

Butita: I’ll address the media the day Mamitto gets pregnant with my child



Comedian Butita has once again refuted reports about his rumoured girlfriend and comedienne Mamitto being pregnant with his child.

While dismissing the claims, Butita told Radio Maisha’s Mwende that in the event of such an occurrence, he will call a press conference to make a public announcement.

“Wakati wa mimba nitaita press conference kitu saa kumi niwaambie sasa hatimaye kuna mimba sasa. Anything that is not official is fake news,” Butita said.

The comedian claimed that the rumours started from a video they were working on with Mamitto and a picture of what looked like a baby shower was shared on Instagram.


The picture went viral with many blogs reporting that the couple are expecting a child.

“Kitu ilifanyika tukiwa tunafanya hiyo video kuna picha ambayo ilepostiwa, sasa badala watu waniulize wakaassume tu na kuanza kusema mtandaoni… oohh, sijui mimba. Lakini nilifurahi sana juu Wakenya wananiaminia sana,” he said.


For a while now, the two comedians, who both shot to the limelight on Churchill Show, have been reported to be an item.

However, they have never come out to deny or confirm the reports even as they continue to hanging out and spending quality time together.

Butita has particularly been dodgy whenever confronted with the question of their rumoured relationship.
