I was fired by same media house twice - Ahmed Juma Bhalo

Media Personality Ahmed Juma Bhalo has had quite a journey in the media industry. He has worked for two media houses twice and also been laid off by one of them twice.

Bhalo kicked off his journey in the media industry (Mainstream) on December 22, 2011 as a trainee at Mediamax-owned station, K24, and left in August 2013 during a mass retrenchment.

In July 2014, he joined the state broadcaster KBC but his stay at the station was short-lived after K24 came calling again. He was poached by the TV station (K24) in November 2015, only to be laid off again in October 2019 during another mass retrenchment.

Fired Twice

“I also worked for K24 twice. I started as a trainee on 22nd Dec 2011 and left on Aug 2013 during a mass retrenchment. Joined KBC on July 2014 and left on Nov 2015 after K24TV poached me back. Only to be laid off again on Oct 2019 during another mass retrenchment” Juma Bhalo told the writer.

On June 15, 2021 Bhalo made yet another TV comeback, this time joining Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC). This is the second time he is working for KBC; July 2014 to November 2015 and now 2021.

Diamond claps back after petition to remove him from BET Awards 2021

Bongo Flava Singer Diamond Platnumz broke his silence after a petition was launched to have his name removed from this year’s BET Awards Nominee list.

Chibu Dangote says everyone is entitled to their opinion and he is respectful of that.

Diamond made the statement at a ceremony where Tanzanian actress Irene Uwoya's son, Krish, was being celebrated for getting his 1st holy communion.

In the interview, Diamond had said that he did not want to give much of his opinion, saying he would never hate anyone for speaking their minds.

“Mimi naheshimu mawazo ya kila mtu, mtu akinifurahia, akinitukana akinisema mimi nashukuru...ina maana mtu kakumbuka na mtu akikumbuka ni baraka ya Mwenyezi Mungu- I respect everyone's opinions, if someone likes me, insults me, I'm grateful because it means they have me in their thoughts and that’s a blessing.”

Further to this, WCB CEO says that those petitioning against his nomination probably did it out of frustration with their personal lives.

He adds that it is not up to him to judge them because they might decide to apologize for it.

“Sio kwamba mtu anakusema kwa ubaya leo anakuchukia, pengine kaamka na moods zake zimemtuma hivyo. Epuka sana kumchukia mtu anayezungumza kitu kibaya juu yako, huwezi kujua kaamka kavurugwa hasira zake na kaamua kukumalizia wewe, kesho mwenyewe akikaa atajuta na kukuomba msamaha.”

When someone says something bad about you, it’s not that they hate you. They probably woke up moody. Avoid hating someone who says something bad about you, you never know when he wakes up with a temper tantrum and decides to end it on you, tomorrow he/she might regret it and apologize," Diamond said.
