They say that everything has a beginning and this is the start of this new and exciting column #UhondoMtaani that will bring to you sizzling and exclusive entertainment stories making headlines across Africa.
The segment will be home of all celebrity gossip keeping you in touch with your favorite celebrities with scoops on different things going on in their daily lives.
People follow their celebrities for different reasons; there are those who want to monitor new fashion trends, lifestyle, and progress in life or achievements.
There is a lot of excitement that fans have when they hear that their favourite or not so favourite celebrity has done something. People want to be able to discuss what celebrities should do and what not to. Some are loved and others are hated because they don’t fit into the stereotypes their fans have created in their minds or labelled against them.
Being an artist is not a walk in the park, it requires a creative mind that will help you remain relevant in the game and some have opted to be controversial so that they can create a buzz and make headlines in the name of selling their art.
Our spotlight this week focuses on celebrities who have dominated the headlines for right and wrong reasons.
Willy Paul which way?
Controversial singer Wilson Abubakar Radido a.k.a Willy Paul caused confusion after going public with the news of his baby mama. The Shado Mado singer publicly gave contradicting statements, on the ethnicity of his baby mama.
In March, Willy Paul told Pulselive.co.ke that he fathered a son with a Mzungu woman but did not divulge more details about her. Fast forward to the beginning of this week, in an interview with a local radio station, Pozze stated that his baby mama is of the Arab descent.
Willy Paul be consistent with your statements!

Prodigal son/Weezdom begs to return home
Gospel singer Weezdom who left the Bahati owned EMB Records under unclear circumstances is now begging to return home.
The Kwanii hit maker has been forced to eat a humble pie and own up to his mistakes of talking ill of his former boss confessing to be a changed man.
He admitted that the little fame he received got into his head and made him forget the people who helped him up the ladder.
Weezdom mentioned that he decide to go public with his apology to Bahati as it was the same channel he used while disrespecting him.
“I strongly believe #EMB is my home. Enyewe bahati hii ni kitu ningekwambia personally lakini juu nilijiona nimekua Celeb.. nilikutusi kwa hii hii public na nimechoose ku apologize mbele yao. I know it's not easy for a Man ku put Pride aside na ku accept mistake, But even with your young age I want to accept you are my Father in Gospel Music. There's a reason why God used you to help me and so many others. And Now as a #ProdigalSon I request to come back home”
#UhondoMtaani hopes all goes well for Weezdom.
