Noni seemed to have addressed the elephant in the room

Bensoul and his girlfriend Noni Gathoni

Word on the street is that musician Bensoul and his girlfriend Noni Gathoni are not on good terms.

Social media has been abuzz with reports that Bensoul could have cheated on Gathoni.

For the better part of the week, the Sol Generation signee has been trending after news emerged that he had impregnated the girl.

The lady allegedly reached out to controversial blogger Edgar Obare with claims that she was carrying the Nairobi hitmaker’s child.

Netizens have been camping on Bensoul and Gathoni’s IG pages expecting a response from either of the two lovebirds.

Noni seemed to have addressed the elephant in the room with a post she shared bearing unprintable words on her Insta Stories and later deleted.

A spot check on their social media pages showed that the couple had deleted photos of each other on Instagram.

Away from the trending drama, Bensoul has been topping charts on Spotify according to the latest streaming data.

One year after the streaming platform launched in Kenya, the list of most-streamed artists includes Nviiri The Storyteller, Otile Brown, Nyashinski and Bensoul.

The soundtrack that defined Nairobi’s dating scene was Bensoul’s Nairobi (feat. Mejja), which was named the third most streamed song in Kenya.

Eight out of the ten songs exported are all collaborations, probably due to the combination of two different fan bases.

Wanani Remix by Bahati, Benzema, Mejja, Odi Wa Muranga and Petra Ssaru was the top exported song, with most of the plays coming in from the USA.

Bensoul’s collaboration with Mejja, Nviiri The Storyteller and Sauti Sol in Nairobi puts it in second place. Ayub Ogada’s Kothbiro is fourth and the only non-collaboration song in the top five.
