‘I can’t support crap if it’s dirty, I won’t play it’ Massawe explains why she attacked Khaligraph

Radio Jambo mid-morning host Massawe Japanni has been a topic of discussion since Thursday afternoon.

This is after she posted a video on her Instagram page, of rapper Khaligraph Jones serenading TV presenter, Betty Kyallo, with one of his sexually explicit songs, which the TV siren seemed to enjoy as she fought so hard to control blushing.

The video which was originally posted on Khaligraph’s social media, got Massawe cringing and she couldn’t hide her disappointed in both the song’s content as well as Betty Kyallo’s reaction on her caption.

She posted.

How do I even back announce this song on-air???? Support Kenyan music activists leteni opinions na mawe.. @bettymuteikyallo what’s there to dance to?
NON..NON..NONSENSE!!!

Her post which has since garnered 20,000 views and more than 900 comments, attracted criticizers and supporters alike as many made their opinions known regarding the song which is full of vulgar language and Betty’s reaction.

This comes at a time when Khaligraph bashed Kenyan presenters for not playing Kenyan music and even offered to pay for 10 Kenyan radio presenters to go and visit the lovely land of Nigeria ‘to see if they will be recognized by their Nigerian fans.’

We caught up with the Bustani la Massawe host and she did not mince her words regarding the whole issue and she came guns blazing blasting Khaligraph for his act which she termed as ‘demeaning’ towards miss Kyallo.

Asked about the music and the whole debate revolving playing Kenyan music, the mother of three said; I am sorry I cannot support crap if it’s bad it’s bad, it’s dirty I won’t play it.

The video which was posted by Khaligraph hurt me as a woman and a mother of daughters, honestly it demeans a woman. Said Massawe.

Then when I saw Betty Kyallo standing next to Khaligraph, to be honest the entire thing was belittling Betty Kyallo and it got me wondering, what sort of lyrics are these?

“I am back bigger and better!” Massawe Japanni announces her comeback

She added;

I can’t deny the fact that Khaligraph is one of the biggest hip hop rappers in this country, he’s good but on this one I don’t agree with him.

Many people criticized me saying that we play a lot of Bongo music which also contain vulgar language but their songs have hidden meanings.

Someone asked me about Kwa Ngwaru, am sorry I don’t know what Kwa Ngwaru means but it has a hidden meaning and it’s a song that I would listen with my child and a grown up, because it’s not too obvious that it’s vulgar. I am sorry I cannot support crap if it’s bad it’s bad, it’s dirty I won’t play it!

The mother of three also went ahead to remind these artists of her zeal and drive to support and play Kenyan music by naming a few up coming artists she has hosted in her show, a segment she has every Friday afternoon.

Vuteni stool! This is the untold story of how Betty Kyallo’s Porshe Cayenne was repossessed!

Betty Kyallo is hitting the headlines again. This time over her past alleged relationship with Mombasa governor Ali Hassan Joho.

In a tell all interview with True Love, Betty admitted that she got close to the stylish governor who is know by his street moniker, Sultan.

On her relationship with Joho, she told the magazine,

Betty Kyallo responds to Dennis Okari’s claims that she is over exposing her daughter online

“IT WASN’T UNTIL MAY (2016) THAT I BECAME CLOSE TO HASSAN. HE WAS GOING THROUGH THE SAME THING, A SEPARATION, AND WE CONNECTED ON THAT LEVEL. WE TRIED TO HAVE SOMETHING AND IT GAVE ME COMFORT BECAUSE WE UNDERSTOOD WHERE WE WERE WITH EACH OTHER. HE WAS EASY TO TALK TO, HANG OUT AND HAVE FUN WITH.”

 

Betty KyalloThanks to the closeness, Betty enjoyed various perks from the governor who blessed her with a Porshe Cayenne and a mansion on Lenana Road.

According to a source who whispered to The Nairobian, Betty was thrown out of the house after the split and she had to beg the governor to atleast let her have the furniture.

“THE HOUSE WAS NOT IN HER NAME, SO WHEN THE RELATIONSHIP WENT SOUTH, SHE WAS KICKED OUT,” A SOURCE SAID.

Joho who is also knowns as ‘001’, went ahead to also reposes the Porshe Cayenne.

The car was later spotted on the side of a street, covered in the official’s campaign poster for the governor. The number plates are one and the same as Betty’s former ride.

“THE PORSCHE CAYENNE WAS REPOSSESSED FROM BETTY WHEN SHE WAS BEHIND THE WHEELS ON MOMBASA ROAD,” CONTINUED OUR SOURCE. “SHE WAS FORCED TO PARK OFF THE ROAD NEAR NYAYO STADIUM AND PICK HER STUFF BEFORE JOHO’S SECURITY DETAIL SEIZED BETTY BEGGED JOHO TO ALLOW HER TO TAKE THE FURNITURE AND OTHER PERSONAL EFFECTS, WHICH HE DID,” THE SOURCE TOLD NAIROBIAN.

Betty KyalloIn a past interview with The Star, Betty Kyallo admitted that she has had thoughts of getting into politics.

“It is something that has crossed my mind a number of times, and the thing is we have quite a number of young leaders now who are in Parliament.”

She added, “And I just want to see whether the promises they made to young people, they will deliver or not. I’m really looking at the young politicians, the likes of Babu Owino, Jaguar and Caleb Hamisi, and I just hope that they can deliver to some extent.”

“IF THEY CAN, THEN I WILL KNOW THERE’S HOPE FOR OTHER PEOPLE LIKE ME, WHO WOULD WANT TO REPRESENT YOUNG PEOPLE OR KENYAN WOMEN IN ANOTHER PLATFORM. IT’S NOT ALIEN TO ME BUT I’M WAITING TO SEE.”

Betty Kyallo responds to Dennis Okari’s claims that she is over exposing her daughter online

Guys things are thick. Dennis Okari called out Betty Kyallo and her parenting style in a recent interview with Nairobi News.

Dennis is not happy with the way his daughter, Ivanna, is being exposed on social media by the KTN news anchor.

He told Nairobi News:

 “MY DAUGHTER DOES NOT DESERVE THE KIND OF PUBLICITY SHE HAS BEEN GETTING, SHE DESERVES TO GROW UP QUIETLY AND NO ONE INCLUDING MYSELF AS HER FATHER SHOULD INTERFERE WITH HER RIGHTS TO PRIVACY,” DENNIS OKARI SAID.

Dennis_Okari_Betty_KyalloDennis and Betty are in the process of getting a divorce. This is after a much talked about wedding ceremony that set the standards in that sector.

“THIS WAS THE FIRST MISTAKE. MANY YOUNG PEOPLE DO THIS. YOU WANT TO DO THINGS BECAUSE IT IS RIGHT. I WAS A PERSONALITY AND I WANTED THE BABY TO BE BORN IN AN INSTITUTION OF MARRIAGE. BUT WHEN WE STARTED PREPARATIONS FOR THE TRADITIONAL WEDDING, THE CRACKS STARTED TO SHOW. A WEEK AND A HALF TO THE CEREMONY, CERTAIN THINGS ABOUT ME WERE SAID BY MY PARTNER’S FAMILY, AND MY FAMILY FOUND OUT. THEY WEREN’T HAPPY,” BETTY KYALLO SAID IN A PAST INTERVIEW WITH TRUE LOVE.

She continued, “When I gave birth to Ivanna, it was not possible to have my mum come in to help me. I struggled with her alone because my mum never felt welcomed in our home. Plus the circumstances around the failed traditional wedding ceremony never really went away. There was always tension around us, between the two families, even us. And I felt I was not being protected by him when it came to his family,” said the tearful Betty.

Eventually, the celebrity couple separated. Betty revealed,

“WHAT DISTURBED ME THE MOST WAS THAT HE HAD NEVER FOUGHT FOR US – IVANNA AND I. EVEN WHEN I SAID I WAS LEAVING HE SAID NOTHING. HE DID NOT FIGHT FOR ME TO STAY.”

 Betty Kyallo

Betty then moved out with her daughter and started her own life and shockingly, ever since they broke up, she says Okari has never inquired about their daughter.

“Going through the whole separation, I lost so many friends. They were all there at the wedding but when things got rough, they ran away. They later returned and said they were ‘giving me time’ to get over everything. We really need to be each other’s keepers and sadly they are not my friends anymore,” said Betty added.

However, in a very recent interview with The weekend Star newspaper, Betty spoke about her co-parenting status with Dennis.

 

“I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO KEEP THAT VERY PRIVATE. MAYBE SOONER OR LATER, I WILL BE ABLE TO TALK ABOUT IT, BUT FOR NOW, I WOULD JUST RATHER NOT AND KEEP IT OFF THE MEDIA.”

Now Betty just laughed off all the furore caused by Dennis calling for more privacy for his daughter and a complete ban on social media postings of her mages.

In her latest Instagram post, Betty wrote:

“SOME THINGS TICKLE ME😅 EEEH MY GUY! LALENI TAM🤗 MENGINE BAADAYE 😎.”

It is not clear if she finds Dennis’ claims laughable or she was referring to something else, but me thinks that the message in the post and the timing it was posted has nothing to do with coincidence.

Mehn, maybe I’m just too jaded.

Anyhow, here is what her two fans said about her post.

lizzydumido: @bettymuteikyallo nilijua tu utakua tickled so is me, hahaha my guy.

bhucco: Yes Betty, it’s important to consider. Don’t brush off and don’t be misadvised. Look at the positive side of it. Good day.

If this is an indication of the upcoming divorce case, then we should ll brace for a bitter battle in the child custody arena.

Keki Tunayo Hatuna? : See How Betty Kyallo’s Colleagues Surprised Her On Her 29th Birthday

The young and energetic KTN news presenter, Betty Mutei Kyallo, was this morning surprised with a birthday cake by the KTN group on live TV.

The ever jovial TV siren said that she’s going to get a few fans to munch the cake with, so be on the look out .

She has revealed that she is 29 years of age. Lets be honest, she looks way younger.

She was live on air interviewing, Adhiambo Odero, talking about the drama festivals at Dagoreti High School when her colleagues ambushed her with the sumptuous looking cake.

Betty revealed that she was part of drama team and did poetry back in high school.

“I used to love drama festival like crazy. I use to be a participant, I used to do the poems, yeah, everything. From district level, to provincial to national yeah,” Betty said.  She surprisingly added that she did them in Swahili. “Usinione mchache,” she added.

In the interview Betty revealed that her participation in drama and poetry in school made her realize she had great passion journalism.

Adhiambo Odero talked about the activities in the drama festivals and specifically about narratives and the dances that tell stories including political ones.

Last year she had a colourful birthday party at one of Nairobi’s posh night clubs and we will be on the lookout this time to see how she will usher in the new year.

EXCLUSIVE: Betty Kyallo Forced To Move Out Of Her Posh Kilimani Apartment

You can imagine my shock when word reached us that Betty Kyallo had moved out of her posh apartment in the Kilimani area.

I was gobsmacked! What could have occasioned this move? It didn’t help that the rumours circulating around had it that she had been kicked out by her sbonza/benefactor.

You see, according to the rumours, the sbonza whose car she has been driving had tired of her and decided to end things. She lost the car she was seen around town in aswell as the apartment.

I refused to believe these rumours, instead choosing to believe that her move was advised by her business circumstances. You see, I have a business and I know that sometimes things go south and when that happens, you have to tighten your belt and brace yourself for some tough times ahead.

Could this be the reason why the lass who had splashed close to 300,000 on a handbag had chosen to vacate the Kilimani premises?

BettyKyalloscar

A colleague of mine who happens to be abit of a romantic instead chose to believe that perhaps Betty Kyalo and her estranged husband had finally reconciled!

So the three options we have as to why she moved out of her Kilimani apartment are:

  1. Sbonza has dipped
  2. Business reasons
  3. Reconciliation with Denis Okari

But first things first, we had to confirm that she had indeed moved house. We went to where she used to live and it was confirmed that she had indeed moved out with all her furniture. With this out of the way, the only thing left to do was to call her and find out.

She informed us that she hadn’t moved out because of a sponsor who had withdrawn his benevolence. She makes all her own money. Even the money to drive a Porsche Cayenne if she damn well pleases!

And as far as business is going, she is doing great!

So what about a reunion with Denis Okari? Listen to how she reacted to that in the audio below:

The phonecall was cut short but she rang me to finish it and this is what she had to say:
