Njoro the Comedian goes into Rehab

Former Churchill show comedian George Maina Njoroge aka Njoro will be away from social media for a couple of months, as he goes into rehab.

The comedian said that his brain is not okay because he has been fighting depression for a long time, and he will be in for treatment and therapy for about three months.

“It's about time .....In weeks which turned into months, I have been fighting or rather kung'ang'ana na depression. It's real guys, it kills you inside & without you knowing you loose yourself, the people you love, friends and so many other things. It makes you become very useless & life lucks meaning. I am there but I thank God He's taking me out of it. @mwalimuchurchill, I want to thank you for the greatest opportunity that you gave me & to everyone that believed in me, I'm so grateful.

Guys, I will be away for some time, for treatment (1-3mnths) coz my "engine"( brain) is not okay. No matter how good a car is, without an engine hakuna gari. I believe I'm gonna beat this & you'll see me very very soon after I'm done with the treatment. For now, I'll take any prayer you'll send my way and financial support to .0746 426336It will go a long way! I have faith that this mountain shall move out of my way by God's Grace and your support. I will be offline but I will be coming on Instagram live every Saturday 8pm to update you on how am doing with the treatment. Once again I thank you so much and God bless you @zainabuzeddy Asante Sana,” wrote Njoro.

Jowie Irungu speaks on his Breakup with Jacque Maribe

Joseph Jowie Irungu has disclosed that he broke up with TV journalist Jacque Maribe while he was in jail, after being arrested as the main suspect in Monica Kimini’s murder.

In an interview with Jalang’o, Jowie said that he decided not to talk to Maribe who was his fiancée at the time, after they decided to end their relationship. He went on to mention that they only talk once in a while when checking up on her.

Do you talk to Jacque?” asked Jalang’o.

“I decided not to. Ile tu you know we broke up while I was still inside. Being content is the best thing and for me nothing moved because I still had my Jah (God) in me… We don’t talk maybe check up on, once in a blue moon,” responded Jowie.

According to Jowie, everything that happened is the will of God and he is content with the way his life has turned out to be.

“Whatever trash you are doing it doesn’t have to be wewe ni anchor, wewe ni presenter ama wewe ni musician as long as umeinclude God, every step you are making you are not making it alone. Na God ndio aliniingiza hapo, na God ndio amenitoa nay eye bado ndio atanitoa that’s what I believe and I’m so content,” said Mr irungu.

Octopizzo hits back at Khaligraph over allegations of buying YouTube Views

Rapper Octopizzo clapped back at his counterpart Khaligraph Jones after he indirectly threw shade at him over allegations of buying YouTube views.

On Thursday, Papa Jones took to social media to call upon “IEBC” to guard his views at a time he was gearing up to the release of his new jam dubbed Lwanda Magere Legacy.

“Woi Woi woi Rada Ni Chafu ,IEBC wacheze Chini pale Youtube,Lwanda Magere Lagacy Dropping any Time , Subscribe right now, #respecttheogs,” reads Khaligraph’s post.

Rapper Breeder LW added; “Woooi woi woii..Wajue Ni Kubaya😂😂.”

However, in a quick rejoinder, the Number Nane Finest hit back stating that he was in the process of reviving his servers so that his views can sky rocket to 10 million and piss-off his haters more.

“Sijakua area Naskia ma Fatboy bado wanaongea 😂😂. Hadi Madancer pekee wanahemesha tumboCut sisters. Acha niamshe Chebukati acheze na server vizuri ndio wajue Rada Chafu! wapate ya kusema vizuri. Round this zinaruka 10M views in a day waongee wachokee 😂😂

For the past few days Octo’s song #NIKUPATE that had over 900K views has registered an unexplained drop to 453K views, leaving fans with questions on whether its true the rapper has been buying views or not.

On a Tuesday, Pulse Live Kenya reposted a video of a guy at a construction site singing to D-Major’s song “Girl of my dreams” and the reception was mind boggling, many lauding the man for his amazing voice and mastery of the queen’s language.

Within a few minutes, the video had gone viral on social media, with many tagging celebrities whom they thought could help the internet sensation actualize his dream of doing music.

The talented young man identified as Alex Mbugua aka Jamsta, spoke Exclusively to Pulse Live Kenya, stating that he did not expected the video to go viral, as he was just expressing himself musically, something he does often.

“I was just recording for the sheer joy of it because I have been doing so more often. I recorded some and posted them on twitter and they ended up getting like 10 retweets. I don’t do music for fame, because to me its a passion. I didn’t know it would go viral, I just posted it and requested a few people to retweet it, like Churchill and they did and I guess that is where it blew up,” said Jamsta.

Legendary Music producer Teddy Josiah promised to produce a free song for Jamsta and in our discussion he disclosed that plans are under way for them to meet.

“He called me yesterday and we had an awesome conversation and we are to meet and see how we gonna do it" Jamsta said.

Hamisa Mobetto on reports that MP Jaguar is the father to Son Dyalan

Tanzanian Video Vixen cum Fashionpreneur Hamisa Mobetto has broken silence on allegations that Kenyan MP Charles Njagua alias Jaguar fathered her child, Dylan.

In a recent interview, Mobetto quashed the reports stating that she doesn’t know Jaguar in person and they have never met.

The mother of two decided to speak up after rumours went around that Jaguar fathered her kid due to Dylan’s uncanny resemblance to the ‘Kigeugeu’ singer.

“Sijawahi kumuona Jaguar katika Maisha Yangu, sijawahi kuonana naye, sijawahi kuwa na number yake ya simu ila sijawahi kuongea naye. Kwa hiyo sababu za kumpost mtoto wangu anazijua yeye mwenyewe lakini kwa sababu watu wengi Instagram wemekuwa wakumuunganisha na mtoto wangu picha, maybe that is one of the reasons. Lakini sijapata nasafi ya kuongea naye maana simjui, so hopefully the day ambayo nitamuona nitamuuliza” explained Hamisa.
