Why I have more male friends than female - Jovial
Singer Jovial has opened up on why she prefers male friends over female in her circle.
The singer said male friends were relaxed and had little in mind compared to their female counterparts. Jovial said female friends were toxic and hardly ever appreciate each other.
“Someone asked me why I don’t have friends,I do have friends but male friends and that’s my team. There is no better-chilled group like boys anytime any day. We women don’t love each other, I have never understood why,” Jovial said.
The singer went on to reveal that was one of the reasons she even had more music collaborations with male artists. According to Jovial those that shared name tags such as babe, were the worst.
The negative energy by female artists Jovial said was one of the reasons there were fewer female artists in the industry than male.
“I hate negative vibes man! That’s why I prefer a male team. Focused! One of the reasons am choosy when it comes to female collaborations,” Jovial noted.
“Especially those that call you babe, those are the worst. Even social media pressure is female-driven, that’s why female artists are few in the industry,” she added.
A look into Jovial’s collaborations, only one involves a female artist, ‘Pita Nawe’, featuring Sylvia Ssaru.

Samidoh is worth fighting for - Karen Nyamu
Nominated senator Karen Nyamu has said her baby daddy Samidoh Muchoki is worth fighting for.
The politician in a question and answer session on her Instagram made the statement after a curious fan asked whether she was in a tangle for the mugithi singer.
“Are you fighting for Samidoh,” the fan asked
“Not really but he's worth fighting for,” Nyamu responded.
The sentiment by Nyamu comes days after she silenced those meddling in her relationship with the Mugithi star.
The mother of three gave her response by sharing a video of a woman diving in a pool with a caption that read:
"Vile mnaingianga kwa relationship za wenyewe hapa kanairo, mungu anawaona. (This is how you poke your nose into other people’s relationships in Nairobi, God is seeing you.)
Karen Nyamu's beef with Samidoh's US promoter escalates
What started as light internet banter regarding Samidoh's baby mama and his US promter Bernice Saroni has taken a different twist after Saroni was put on the spot by Nyamu.
Bernice Saroni who is majorly involved in Samidoh’s tour in the US did not take matters lightly when she was put on the spot by the nominated senator.
Nyamu in a Q&A session on her Instagram received a query from a fan who asked whether she knew her baby daddy had another woman.
In her response, Nyamu said she was even on a call with the said woman (Bernice Saroni) where they had a bit of laughter.
The matter did not even sit well with Saroni who accused Nyamu of altering the context of the video call to paint her in bad light.
“You are now calling me a mumaa, you are the same age as my mother, you should be giving me advice, not fighting for a man, esih nominated senator you are beyond this stupidity now you have stepped on wrong toes, you video called me wanting to know who I am now are you twisting the story that we are friends since when and how,” Saroni said in response to Nyamu's post.
Saroni went on to say Nyamu was mentally unfit and needed mental evaluation and urged her to focus on bringing up her children and try not to prove points every time. She also adviced Nyamu to uphold the post she held in the government
“You need mental evaluation otherwise I will drive you to therapy myself, don’t bleed on me with your past wounds, get healing. Is Sam the first person I am with, you try to prove to appoint every day, can't you let people breathe? Focus on raising your children like most of us are. At least behave like a woman of value or dignity,” Saroni said.

Quiver Lounge owner speaks on viral dedication video as Pastor T weighs in
The owner of Quiver Lounge has set the record straight on the viral video of a cleric, who appeared to be blessing the new Quiver Lounge entertainment spot in Kenol, Murang'a.
The video sent tongues wagging with netizens raising concerns with the clergy being involved in the opening of nightclubs, prompting the owner of the popular entertainment spot, Mr. Peter Mbugua to speak out.
Mr Mbugua clarified that the clergy were there to consecrate the mall on which the club is located, noting that it was the entire mall that was being blessed and not the club as alleged by some.
" As you've already been told, the mall in which Quiver Lounge sits, was being dedicated to God as any business person would as he embarks on a new business challenge. While Quiver Lounge is a nightspot, it also enjoyed the blessings from the priests since it's also part of the many businesses the Murang'a mall hosts." Mr. Mbugua explained to Citizen Digital.
He added that Quiver Lounge had no knowledge on the presence of the clergy and had not sought their services in this instance, but is happy that the business was blessed alongside other tenants at the mall.
"We have always sought pastors to pray for our nightclubs every time we open a new branch. This is a business like any other. There are a lot of risks in nightclubs - people can be stabbed to death with bottles, there are knives involved, fires in the kitchens, and stampedes too. We always ask God to protect us from hazards and we also channel a lot of our profits to the Church. I don't see any controversy in asking men of God to bless a new nightclub. " He added.
Pastor T weighs in
Among those who reacted to the vide is popular city preacher, Paster T Mwangi who urged the church to condemn the priests shown in the viral video.
"Shame! I hope the Catholic Bishop clergy will come out to condemn such actions and activity because it's not in line with our biblical ethics and doctrine.
"This club (Quiver) will be a base of immorality, marriages will end here, pregnancies will be conceived here and aborted at the same time, destinies will be aborted here hence the trade is not in line with our ethics. Jesus interacted with sinners but Jesus never blessed sin. Soon we will dedicate drugs warehouses and brothels in the name of a business. Hii nayo ni apana." Pasto T noted.
Quiver Lounge is a popular entertainment spot in the city. It recently opened a branch in Kenol, Murang'a county.
