The CEO of Marini Naturals, Michelle Ntalami, has spoken out against women who shame each other on social media.

In a lengthy Instagram post on Wednesday, Michelle Ntalami condemned the behaviour, especially during a month when women should celebrate each other.

According to Ntalami, lines were crossed when Minne took their beef from the show to social media, TV and radio.

"I kept silent, but lines were crossed. The back-to-back insults, aggrandizing the drama online, profiting off it with merchandising, going as far as taking the attacks to National TV and Radio, coming for my bag and brand, bodyshaming other women online, hurling insults and profanity? ... You cross my boundaries," Michelle wrote.

Ntalami believes there should be a clear distinction between showbiz and personal space. Drama on the show should remain on the show, and grown women should not tear each other down on social media.

She called for women to support and uplift each other instead of tearing each other down.

Michelle's beef with Minne Cayy began during a fancy dinner party on the Real Housewives of Nairobi.

According to Sonko, Achieng's new job will involve serving as the head trainer in all his establishments, including the Salama Bling Beach Resort and Kimeremeta Safari Lodge.

"As a long-term measure, we are intending to open for her a boxing training centre where she will be coaching boxing. She will also serve as the head trainer in all the gyms in our establishments (Salama Bling Beach Resort, Kimeremeta Safari Lodge etc.)." Sonko wrote.

She will also be the assistant head of security and head of all female bouncers at Club Volume Mombasa at night and during peak hours/holidays.

When it comes to finding love and building a successful career, many people believe that timing is everything.

While some individuals choose to prioritize their careers over their personal lives, others find themselves struggling to balance both.

Gospel singer Daddy Owen is one such person who has recently reflected on his life choices and the impact they have had on his career and personal life.

In a candid interview with former radio host Shaffie Weru, the musician shared some personal insights into his failed marriage, his decision to get married at the peak of his career, and his current approach to dating.

Daddy Owen said getting married at the peak of one's career could be detrimental adding that he wished he did not get married before he became famous.

“I think I got married very late, I wish I got married before the fame. That way I would grow into the fame. Getting married at the peak of your career is a different story,” he said.

Reports of Daddy Owen's marriage breaking emerged in 2020 before the two officially parted ways in 2020.

Reasons why the two parted ways are still unclear with Daddy Owen promising to reveal the truth soon.

“Kenyans do not really know the real story but one day I will sit here and tell you exactly what happened,” he said.

On plans of remarrying, Daddy Owen made it clear that he hasn't given up on love and will wed again when the time is right and with the right person.
