By Wanja Waweru

The long-running feud between oppular radio host Rachel Muthoni Njeru, often known as Mwalimu and the gengetone boy band Sailors Gang has been being brought up again, with Rachel stating that managing the group is one of her greatest regrets.

The social media influencer shared this in an interesting conversation she had on her official YouTube channel with a friend named Monicah Wairimu Mwariri.

“What is your biggest regret? Like the one thing you say if I could have done differently I would have gotten different/ better results as Mwalimu Rachel?”

Monicah who was acting as the moderator of that specific episode posed the question to Rachel.

“Managing… managing Sailors Gang!” replied the NRG radio presenter without a second thought.

She continued by saying that interacting with the group had been such a challenge that it had put her in some of the most difficult circumstances imaginable.

“Wueh! Wewe ushawahi lala cell (have you ever spent a night in jail)?” Rachel asked the host to which she replied she’d never and doesn’t even ever wish to encounter such a moment.

Mwalimu Rachel said that while she was in charge of the gengetone male group, she had spent a night in a police cell.

Mimi nililala cell, like wueh…” Rachel revealed.

Sharing a snippet of the interview with her over 403k Instagram followers Rachel wrote, “Cell nayo nililala ni ukweli… wueh! That was a DAAARK time for me. It’s okay though… Time for EVERYONE to hear my story from ME.”

She stated in another post that the reason she was finally speaking about it was so that the suffering she had endured would not be in vain.

“Hopefully my experience will educate other managers as well as caution artists against some things,” Mwalimu Rachel’s post read.

Risper Faith: Why my weight loss surgery didn’t work



by Wanja Waweru

Risper Faith, a socialite who underwent liposuction three years ago, has drawn attention for her current weight increase.

In an interview with Mwende Macharia, Risper provided an explanation for why she gained weight following the treatment.

Risper Faith stated that the liposuction procedure she had in 2020 did not result in the outcomes she had hoped for, as she disregarded the post-operative instructions.

She acknowledged that her failure to adhere to the advised food recommendations and her lack of regular exercise ultimately caused the results of the treatment to reverse.

“I had liposuction in 2020, but after that I was supposed to follow some procedures and avoid some foods. I ate everything and gained more weight. I didn’t follow the instructions and it backfired,” she said.

She spent a lot of money on the procedure itself—Sh460,000.

She did, however, make it clear that her spouse had paid for the procedure.

In 2020, Risper revealed that she had undergone the procedure and had eight liters of fat from her lower back and stomach removed.

She revealed that she had put on more than 35 kilos after giving child and wished to lose them in order to return to her optimum weight of 80 kilos.

Risper also recognized that celebrities publish pictures of their lives on social media using editing and filtering tools in order to stay current and attract online attention.
