Just recently Polycarp who is a member of Sauti Sol tied the knot with his long time girlfriend and women have shifted their focus to the tall, dark and handsome Bien.
Bien has the body to die for, a voice that can toa nyoka pangoni and the financial stability to endure that he entertains his woman.
Despite being in a relationship, women are still hopeful that he might change his might and they might hit the jackpot with him
3. Chibu Dangote
I know what you are thinking, that ooh but I thought he is married, mara ooh si he has kids; so what?
Having kids with different baby mama’s does not eliminate him from the eligible bachelors list.
Despite the fact that he recently got engaged bado hawajaoana so to team mafisilets bado kuna chance.
4. Sean Andrew
Grandson to former President Mwai Kibaki, Sean is among the most eligible bachelors not only in Africa but also in Kenya.
5. Juma Jux
With his melodious tunes, a body worth being on the cover of magazines, who wouldn’t want such a man for a husband.
Its better to get a handsome man and get beautiful babies whom you will happily look at than marry an ‘ugly” guy and end up with the double tragedy of being a single mother to not so appealing kids, after all even ugly guys cheat.
Comedians make us laugh but most people don’t appreciate the fact that off the stage they are parents juggling multiple roles.
Here is a list of Kenyan comedians with their kids
1. Dr Kingori
He is witty and a dad to a daughter who is the apple of her father’s eye.
2. Njoro the comedian
He is known for his comical nature on the ‘Churchil show’ but behind the scenes he is a great dad who does not mind flaunting his twin girls.
He wrote the caption below sharing a photo of his girls
‘Leo hawataki story zangu …ndio kuingia manyumbani’
In another he says
“Barua kwa my daughter’s ..Kwanza I love you so much and I miss you ,but Daddy has to do what he has to do to secure your future ..till the day I will die I will always be thea for you..sucrifices ?nafanya Kila kitu ,be happy and know Dad will do anything for you ..tutatafta kabisa ..Mungu mbele..sad your father’s name will betray u .”
3. Teacher Wanjiku
She is known by many as a teacher but at home she is a warm and loving mother to two adorable girls.
In one of her posts she says
‘My daughters all grown up, My reason for that grind😍😍’
She entertains us with her acting skills on Real House Wives of Kawangware, but most noticeably also is her charm and beauty. She has a daughter (below) who by the look of things is a beauty herself.
She makes our ribs ache with her acting prowess on Papa Shirandula, and is a mother of one.
Disability is frowned upon in the African setting but these celebrities have broken the stigmatization by talking about it in public.
Hard as it may be, they have opened about having disabled children or siblings some even parents, narrating how the journey has been.
Media personality Anne Ngugi has a daughter who is battling hydrocephalus. Speaking about it she says
“She understands she is different from other kids. When we go out to mentor people, she is able to express herself very well. As a mother, my dream is to see her stand strong on her own, even when I am not there, and never allow anyone to point fingers at her, telling her she is different. Raising a child with special needs has not been easy for Anne, but she does not complain about it.”
“Sometimes you go to places with her and that is when I feel the weight that she is different from others but for her, Angel has developed a thick skin and, therefore, she copes. I have always accepted because I know there is always a reason.
You have to accept the fact that your child is special and start looking for solutions, as well as try so hard to love that child because no one will love your child more than you.”
2. Yvonne Okwara
Yvonne recently lost her brother who was deafblind almost all his life. In a previous interview she opened up about it saying that
“In the 60s, while expectant, my mother contracted German Measles. It has no symptoms. By the time she was giving birth to her first born son, there were complications. Mental retardation, and deafblindness started to set in.
She tried everything, no door was unknocked, multiple surgeries, consultations. She talked to every doctor in the country. All of them, including, the professors, told her they had travelled far and wide and had NEVER seen anyone like my brother.
That he would not live beyond his 5th birthday. Or his 10th. Nor his 12th. Albert Okwara is still here! 50 years later! What a journey it has been.”
“Friends have fallen along the way, those that could make the choice did so and exited our lives. Called it a curse. To the entire community! I won’t name names but he knows himself!
The world of disability is a lonely one! The road has been lined with tears, pain, dashed hopes. But it has also had wonderful lessons that have made me who I am today! Let me explain, Albert is deafblind. He does not see, speak or hear.”
3. Emmy Kosgei
Female artiste Emmy Kosgei is another Kenyan celebrity who has openly talked about having a family member battling disability.
Emmy’s dad is bound to a wheel chair after his limbs were affected by polio years ago. In an earlier post, the artiste expressed her amazement at the fact that her mum over looked her dad’s disability .
She says that
“My mum is my inspiration, I have grown to see my mum achieve much having brought us up having been married to my dad who is physically challenged.
I am still amazed at how she was able to overlook my dad’s physical disabilities , and marry him even with the pressure from the society and his family on what she had seen in such a man.”
“She married him and she has stood by him even as he studied at the university, we were also in school but she has been there through it all”
That was the beginning of his ordeal. One day, Henry woke up to his mother’s loud shouts. She was wondering why he had overslept, forgetting to milk the cows. Henry remembers:
“We argued with mum. I tried to tell her it was still dark while she insisted that the sun was up. I reached for the light switch but couldn’t see anything and concluded there was a power blackout. Mum thought I was just being lazy.”
Soon, his mother realized that her son was not putting on a show and they went back to Thogoto Hospital.
Several tests revealed that he had lost his sight and that nothing could be done to reverse the condition. At 21, Henry had become blind.
“I got into a depression,” says Henry.
5. DJ Pinye
In Daddy Owen’s music video ‘Mbona’ in collabo with Denno, Pinye talks about having a brother who is epileptic.
The next time you want to give up just think about what the people above and a million others go through everyday, and be encouraged.
A video going viral shows actor of the Real Househelps of Kawangware beating up an unidentified man. The video that was evidently taken at night shows Onyi brutally beating this other man who is said to go by the name Devicent who has to get rescued by onlookers.
In the video, you can hear people chanting:
Buda rada? Tulia buda, cheki, acheni utiaji buda. Acheni ufala. Acheni hizo buda. Onyi Acha ufala. Hizi ni aibu gani hizi? Hio ni ufala.
The video confirms that it is indeed the actor who was involved in the drama. Reports have it that the two came to blows after Devicent was caught with Onyi’s girlfriend.
