Ben Kitili’s weighs in on Mwakideu’s cheating allegations
KTN News Anchor Ben Kitili has weighed in on Alex Mwakideu’s cheating allegations, that were made public by YouTuber Edgar Obare.
In a tweet, Kitili poked holes in Obare’s exposés stating that most of them are one-sided stories, carrying half-baked proof. He went on to question his method of acquiring the messages he always shares via his Insta-stories.
“The thing with the Edgar Obare type of 'exposés' is that it's poorly done journalism. One-sided stories, half-baked proof, more trolling than truth. Yet he's using that to break homes, defame & maybe make money. Is he using spy software? I hope he has read the cyber-crimes act,” reads a Tweet from Kitili.
In another tweet, Kitili added that in this era people can forge WhatsApp chats juts to destroy someone else.
“Lakini my opinion does not in any way exempt anyone's choices from consequences... I am simply focussing on the process..in these streets you can forge whatsapp chats and end someone, then hide behind 'hide my identity,'' added Kitili.
On Thursday, Radio Presenter Alex Mwwakideu was a trending topic on a number of social media platforms over cheating allegations labeled against him by Edgar Obare. Going by the leaked chats that have been circulated on social media Mwakideu is being accused of being in a secret affair with his former Colleague at Milele FM identified as Irene Barungi.
Utakufa Maskini- Angry Femi One
The Utawezana maker said that many talented Youth continue to suffer simply because those entrusted to handle their cash have become self-centered and no longer represent artistes.
“Nimeona hii story ya MCSK and this is all I have to say; Kama wewe ni msee ako na Talent, whether we ni Footballer, unachora graffiti, Musician or Photographer na umepata chance ya kwenda place ingine, like in other countries, kwenda Majuu ama Country ingine.

Because this country doesn’t give a fuck about mtu yeyote mwenye ako na Talent. Ukichoose kukaa kwa hii Country utakufa Maskini. Government don’t give a fuck, body zinafaa kuprotect wasee wako na Talent, sijui FKF, sijui MSCK wako hapo kujisaidia, na ndio maana kila siku unaskia kwa TV Msanii mkongwe anaomba msaada. Footballer machachari anaomba msaada, please just enda,” said Femi One.
Mwijaku’s apology to Tanasha Donna
Tanzanian Radio Presenter Mwijaku is begging Tanasha Donna for forgiveness after she threatened to sue him over claims that he is Naseeb Junior’s father.
Speaking during a press Conference in Dar es Salaam, Mwijaku mentioned that he was misunderstood by those who propelled his words hence the need to clarify and apologize to Mama Nasseb.
The outspoken presenter said that being an African man who comes from the same village with Diamond Platnumz, kids always belong to the society and saying Naseeb Junior is his son doesn’t necessarily mean he is the biological father.
Mwijaku also pointed out that he was questioned by Diamond Platnumz's lawyer who also demanded an apology from him.
Just the other day, Ms Donna had threatened to take Mwijaku to Court for misleading the public by claiming he is Naseeb Junior’s father.
Linus Kaikai to Ezekiel Mutua
Royal Media Services (RMS) Director of Strategy and Innovation Linus Kaikai has welcomed KFCB boss Ezekiel Mutua to 10 over 10 after he stepped out dressed casually unlike his norm of rocking suits.
On Tuesday, Mutua shared a photo rocking shorts and a long-sleeved T-shirt complemented by a round hat, a thing that prompted Kaikai to poke fun at him by referring to him as the ‘new 10 over 10 host’.
“Sasa Twende kazi 10/10Grinning face with smiling eyes Great starter pack for new host!” reads Kaikai’s tweet.
Mutua responded by quoting Willis Raburu’s 10 over 10 signature ‘Wabebe”.
“Lol. . .wabebe!!!!” replied Mutua.
Mutua has joined the list of prominent people who have ditched their suits to adapt to the ‘New Normal’ brought about by the ongoing Coranavirus pandemic.
Willis Raburu who caught wind of the conversation, boldly echoed Kaikai’s sentiments by welcoming Mutua to 10 over 10 with open arms.
“Shout out to Daktari 🤣🤣🤣 WABEBE TO THE WORLD. We welcome you with open arms” reacted Willis Raburu.
