Why I quit music to be a truck driver in the US – Nyashinski

Published

on

Back in 2016 rapper Nyashinki’s music career was at it’s peak, he quit and relocated to the USA.

Nyashinki quit and started a career a a truck driver this was when his trajectory as a member of Kleptomaniacs was on the up and up.

Together with his family, the rapper, real name Nyamari Ongegu, got a chance to relocate to Delaware, USA, despite being aware he was cutting short his career.

Speaking on his YouTube channel first episode, Nyashinski said life did not favour him while there.

“When we moved abroad, I had completely quit music. I was working back in the States as a truck driver,” he said.

“I used to drive a lorry, trying to survive.”

NyashinskiThe ‘Malaika’ hitmaker says the first two years he was in Delaware, then he moved to Michigan.

“That experience taught me a lot. Two things that were life-changing for me back then was one, when I was here, I was a star,” he said.

“People recognised me everywhere and we were doing what we loved. I moved from a place where I was known and getting a bit of favours here and there to a place where no one knows me.”

“No special treatment and you must work because you have to eat.”

Another major lesson he learned in the 10 years he was away was having people around you and conversations are very important.

“That was coupled with the fact I was used to having people around me to a lonely life of driving a truck,” he said.

“There you are alone for over 16 hours. You only stop to fuel, sleep, shower and use the bathroom. So you find yourself enjoying small conversations with people you meet for five minutes. At least it was a way from that cage.”

He said the lines on the road even become hypnotising after a long distance and he looked at them, thinking about his life.

“I accepted that this is my life,” he said.

He says despite the hustles, he enjoyed living a normal life, where no one knew him. He could walk in a mall, on the roads and be normal.

The reason he came back to Kenya is after realising he was living a life that he felt he was not using his intelligence or exerting his passion and purpose.

“So back in the States, my friend told me to just go in studio and exert that pressure as a lyricist,” he said.

“I did not have to release the songs. But I found myself listening to a beat, creating a song and then wanting to perfect it and then I want people to listen. That is how I found myself back into the music world and came back home.”

Nyashinki has since been releasing hit after hit and recently, he released ‘Lucky You’ album, which he is still promoting.

Published

Sauti Sols Polycarp’s wife Lady Mandy has for the first time talked about her pregnancy, just 2 months after welcoming their bouncing baby boy.

August 26, 2020, the cry of a baby was heard for the first time in the power couple’s home as baby O got officially introduced to the world.

Lady Mandys pregnancy journey

2 months in and the new mom has finally gained the courage to tell her story as it is, a blend of adventure and fun times in the middle of a crisis.

“Friends , I truly enjoyed my pregnancy 🙆🏽‍♀️ yo,” she started off.

“I felt the most confident, beautiful, at peace and probably most positive I have ever been in all my adult life. EVEN in the middle of a whole pandemic,” Lady Mandy beautifully confessed.

Being her first time as a mom, the Burundian melanin-skinned beauty could not get over her pregnancy journey which she best describes as a ‘bliss-filled event’.

However, unlike it would be the case for many women and mothers, hers was exciting. Something she forever remains grateful for, with numerous baby bump photos, that have proven too much for her to deal with.

“Y’all will have to endure me sharing them with you 🤣🤣🤣,”she frankly told her social media fam.

Actor Risper Faith talks about her two years struggle with weight

Published

on

It’s Monday evening when we get to Body by Design, a specialist hospital that exclusively offers plastic and cosmetic surgery in Kenya, situated on Riara road. A small bird has just whispered to us that a special client, actor and former socialite Risper Faith (pictured above), has just checked in for special treatment.

Our curiosity is drawn by the fact that for two years now, Risper has been off public limelight and only appears on her social media.

On the corridors, we bump into her husband Brian Muiruri, the father to her two-year-old son. He is looking a bit anxious and from the look of things, he is not ready to disclose much of what is going on. As we greet, a friend joins in and in another minute, a doctor calls Brian into a private room. About 30 minutes later, he returns looking a little bit relieved.

“She will be here all night as the surgery has been such a delicate process. The doctors will have to watch over her and probably discharge her tomorrow,” Brian tells us, conversing as if we have had a brief of the whole story.

“I know you (Pulse) are her friends and I am sure she will give you the whole story once she is discharged,” he assures before we are warned that visiting hours are over and that we need to leave the premises.

On Tuesday morning, we head back to the Riara Corporate Suites facility and as the clock ticks 8am, our efforts pay.

Here comes Risper with her husband. She is looking a bit weak but has enough energy to smile at us. She has a covering around her waist. Anxious, we await for her to break the story.“I was undergoing liposuction because I have had too much fat in very unwelcome places following the birth of my two-year-old son,” she breaks the ice.

“I haven’t worn a bikini since the birth of my son as I have not been confident wearing one. It felt uneasy. I am not saying that I have been overweight, but that I needed to sculpt out the body shape I wanted to have. I so badly wanted to regain my sexy body back and overly boost my self-esteem as a woman,” she remarks before getting a stitch and bowing in the pain.

She has shared her journey with her TikTok family, posting several videos of her tummy area. ‘Hello am Risper Faith and am struggling with weight after giving birth to my son,’ one of the videos is captioned, where she later picks up a waist trainer, which she tried to use.

The procedure was a tough and delicate taking almost 24 hours. She goes ahead to show us glass bottles containing the extracted fat and moving videos of the rather rigorous surgical process. This is nerve-wracking.

“When my husband and I heard that we could get permanent results here, we were so excited. At the cost of Sh450,000, we hoped for the best results and now see, soon my real curves will be showing.

The truth is that I was scared of the procedure, but I gathered my courage so then I could go through it and get the required results,” Risper goes on noting that during the procedure, everything happened step-by-step with no pain.

The former socialite grew famous for having a bootylicious body that made her one of the most sought after socialites in East Africa. She graced showbiz magazine covers with the hourglass shape the same way she appeared in music videos. She later became a cast member on Nairobi diaries, where her love for Brian blossomed. Those days are long gone.

“I have been trying everything to get my shape back. It has been a nightmare. Every woman likes to look good and I am happy I will flaunt my old awesome look again in a matter of days,” she concludes.

Amina Abdi quietly quits troubled Capital FM

Published

on

Capital FM presenter Amina Abdi Rabar has called it quits at the station which had recently been hit by a massive exodus of presenters.

Amina’s exit was not announced neither did she tell her listeners that she was leaving the station she had worked for for almost a decade.

In the last few weeks, Fareed Khimani who returned to Capital FM last year, has been hosting the morning show alone and disclosed tha there will be a new co-host who will be joining him soon.

“Amina Abdi will not be returning and I will be joined soon by a new co-host. She has gone to do big and better things,” he said.

Amina, who is a vivid social media user, did not tell her followers that she was leaving her morning show leaving many to speculate on what exactly transpired between her and station owned by city billionaire Chris Kirubi.

Her social media pages showed that she had deleted almost everything to do with the media house only leaving the material she promotes and the show she hosts on NTV, The Trend.

Her departure from Capital fm comes just a month after another long time presenter Miano Muchiri left, and unlike the quiet departure by Amina, he said he was leaving his mid-morning show which he had hosted for more than a decade.

“The time has come to say goodbye to radio I would love it if you tuned in tomorrow one last time from 10:00-14:00,” he told his listeners then.

In mid-2019, the media house lost a host of its top talents, including radio host Anita Nderu who resigned saying she felt she had given her best and wanted new challenges.

Others who left the station are Web Editor and lifestyle writer/photographer Susan Wong, who resigned in January 2019 to return to her Canadian home and popular presenter Laura Walubengo, who quit in July 2018.

Others who also left were veteran presenters like Maqbul Mohammed, Cess Mutungi and My Two Cents co-hosts Sharon Mundia.
