“When I Started GROOVE AWARDS, It Gave Me A 1.5 MILLION Debt” : Founder Of Groove, Kevin Muley

Kev Muley is one of the down to earth CEO’s I have ever met not because he is a christian but because he will do anything to get the job done. From manual work he will make his hands dirty like any other employee to make sure that the set up is okay and ensure that nothing is left out of the picture.

kevin mulei  post

With all the success that people see at Groove you would easily think that Kev Muley had an easy road but not so fast Kevin Muley has seen it all. Not to talk of fighting the big giants in the industry to finding himself with a debt of 1.5 million , Kevin Muley had to go through all that to establish himself and become relevant in the industry.

stage groove 2 post

In an interview with the Standard he spoke of how far he has come :

Groove Awards was a means of exposing and appreciating those who serve and minister for the Lord. The first year had great response; the second year, however, landed me in a Sh1.5 million debt. Nothing I had planned worked out. I was 23 then.

I found giants in the industry. I had to decide to whether to fight them or raise the bar. I chose the latter and I ensured all events were done excellently. As a result, we grew and are now opening a branch in Rwanda.

Kev Muley later took a break after incurring the debt and he left the country to re-invent on how better he will grow Groove Awards and set a bar.

kev mulei and janet post

I took a break and left for the US where I took time to reflect and reinvent. I got a clear vision and more ideas. I returned home a year later as a businessman.

 I concentrated on providing sound and visual systems for events. I took up Groove as a side hustle, but it turned out better than most of my ideas. I, therefore, put together a team and started working on it. The ideas we have unveiled to date, including the Groove Camps, Groove Tours, are from what I got when in the US. Groove is now mega.

Little did he know that what he had planned for would actually make a great change in the gospel industry. Now groove is the biggest awards in Kenya having passed the others that existed at that time when he was starting.


Groove Awards will be celebrating 10 years this year since its inception in 2004.

“Why Ooh Why, Burning CHILDREN Alive” : Naisula Lesuuda Speaks Against Xenophobia In SA


Xenophobia fear seems to be spreading quite fast in South Africa and Hon. Naisula Lesuuda has joined the group of leaders who have spoken against the vice which has caught Africa by surprise. Naisula states that she is so saddened and can’t comprehend why someone would go to the extent of burning another including children.


I am deeply saddened by the news coming from South Africa on Xenophobic attacks against foreigners.
It’s beyond anything I can ever comprehend; to see people being burnt alive ‪#‎XenophobicSA‬ replicable to the shooting innocent students in the Garissa University attack ‪#‎147NotJustANumber‬
I couldn’t get myself to finish watching clips of #XenophobicSA Why ooh why? Burning innocent children alive…like what jobs did they take that you deserved?
Shame #XenophobicSA

Immigrants are blamed for taking jobs and opprtunities from locals. Many of them have been forced to close their shops.

Reported comments by the Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini – that foreigners should “pack their bags” and leave – are thought to have stoked the fires of hatred. Many of those rioting were heard chanting “the king has spoken”, reports channel 4.

In one video a group of migrants are rounded up and burnt alive – including a child. In another a man is dragged on the streets naked and then stoned.

Some migrants are too scared to go out, and others have armed themselves trying to protect their livelihoods.

The government has refused to categorise these attack as xenophobic, instead warning against spreading false information.

This is seen as a terrible tragedy of memory by South Africans who endured racial intolerance under apartheid. Africans, who supported the country’s liberation, are being rewarded with beatings and burnings.

6 Ways To Be A Good Friend In Times Of Grief

Grief is hard. Even professionals trained to help people cope admit that they feel ill equipped from time to time. We weren’t born knowing how to handle grief – we seem made for a life without it.

Even though there’s no end to the list of ways to serve someone who’s hurting, sometimes that intimidates us and cripples us from reaching out. But being a good friend through grief isn’t exclusively the territory of those of us who are trained or especially talented at giving advice and organizing meal deliveries. With a few guidelines, it’s something we all can do.

comforting friend

1. Listen without Judging or Advising

Nobody calls you at 3 a.m. for a pat answer. They’re calling to know that someone’s out there, in their loss, with them.

For now, be okay with not having an answer. Further, be okay with not giving an answer even if you think you have one. Don’t tell them how they’re feeling; let them tell you. Sometimes we steer clear of a friend in crisis because we don’t know what to say, but unless their situation calls for immediate action, we can save our advice and anecdotes. No matter how stellar your stories might be, try letting them rest until another day and simply listen.

2. Validate the Experience of Grief

When a loved one dies, we assure the family, “You’ll see her again!” When a friend goes through a bad breakup we say things like, “At least you didn’t marry him.” We dishonor their experience when we simplify in this way.

Because loss disturbs us so deeply, our impulse is to fill that awkward, empty space in sympathy cards and funeral homes and on the phone, when it feels like nothing else can be said but something should be, with things that sound to us like hope. We desperately want it to be easier for our friends, but we dishonor their grief when we say things like, “It could have been worse,” and remind them to be thankful that it wasn’t.

It might be true that having bits of life untouched by loss will make recovery a little easier eventually. But right now, everything is touched by loss. What your friend needs in that moment is to face the loss squarely and to grieve it for what it is — not to feel guilty for being unable to put a positive spin on the chaos.

3. Support the Process

Some people grieve by being quiet, contemplative, or withdrawn. Some people grieve by shouting unrepeatable things at the heavens. Both are okay, and both require safe places to express the grief. That first wave of grief doesn’t show up in measured doses; it just hits you. To feel that is healthy – not something we should repress.

Minimizing, telling someone, “I wish you didn’t feel so bad,” heaps guilt on top of grief. It communicates that your comfort -and not your friend’s healing- is your priority. Someone who respects your wish not to be made uncomfortable then has to choose whether to express this pain elsewhere or to hide it from you. Neither is a good way to keep a friend close.

These expressions of pain at seeing someone else’s pain usually come from a place of empathy. It’s natural to hurt when someone else hurts. It indicates that we’re probably not sociopaths, which counts as a healthy thing in my book. The trouble comes when we take it a step further and impose our own personality, experience, and theories on grief on someone else.

You might be armed with resilience and a brilliant testimony and excellent theories on grief, but no one can perfectly guide anyone else’s healing process. The best thing that you can do is simply stay beside them, supporting their unique process.

4. Give Grace

It’s hard to be pushed away by a grieving person, or to be on the receiving end of the requisite anger, especially if you’ve grown to count on this person for something that they can’t offer at the moment.

No one gets a free pass for injuring anyone, and healthy boundaries are still in play. But when we’re in the midst of grief, our world is suddenly full of triggers, and normal cycles of life seem foreign. (Everything has changed – how is it possible that the mail is still being delivered?)

In that place, social graces sometimes take a backseat to survival. The occasional exhibit of bad manners doesn’t mean that we dislike you; it means that we feel safe around you. We’ll come around.

5. Don’t Fix

It’s hard, when we’re so thoroughly schooled on time management, retirement planning, and life coaching, to realize how little control we truly have over our lives. We adore the illusion of control. When our naiveté runs out, and we stand there stunned by the violence of the forces that tear the precious things from us, we scramble for a semblance of security. We can’t ever be ready for that moment.

Witnessing someone else’s experience of loss triggers our own fears of loss, so we react to our lack of control in the world by grasping for control over our friends’ reactions.

When we try to fix someone else, we take on a mission that’s never ours. We end up urging our friends to shortcut the necessary work that they need to do, give a nice testimony in church, and move on. People who seem to bounce back quickly might keep us more comfortable, but these people probably have some serious reflection left to do.

The temptation to appear healed before we truly are healed is strong in our self-reliant culture. This happens even in the church, where we react to loss with offerings of hope and commandments about joy instead of holding and comforting and “mourning with those who mourn,” as we’ve been told to do. We know that there’s light at the end of the tunnel and, in that case, we’d like to skip the tunnel altogether and fast-forward to the happy ending.

Healing is always a process, and an often uncomfortable one. What we need is a safe place to let that process unfold. The sooner we embrace that our job is simply to be with our friends in their journey, the sooner they’ll feel like we’re on their team.

6. Stay

We hear that children who have been removed from harmful environments often push against the love of their new support system, not in hopes that it will give, but that it will hold. Adults aren’t especially different. Even subconsciously, sometimes we start to test the staying power of our support system, afraid, and asking, “Are you sure you still want to be here?” Where hard times come as seasons and aren’t a pattern of a destructive relationship, I believe the answer should be yes.

We often relegate teachings about everlasting love to sermons on marriage and hanging our heads over the divorce rate, but that everlasting loving-kindness (in the Old Testament, the Hebrew hesed) speaks to all kinds of relationships.

Months after the first round of cards and visitors and lasagna (why is it always lasagna?) has come and gone, months after it seems like most people have forgotten, the people who are left there beside us, following our lead and honoring our story, are keepers – even if they think they’re clueless and unqualified.

We always have the hope of light after darkness, but sometimes what we need most is a friend who will sit beside us in the dark, saying nothing, and wait with us for the light.

11 Important Questions To Ask Before Getting Married

It’s now more common for marriages to fail than it is for them to last a lifetime. But you can still get married with the confidence that you’ll enjoy the healthy, holymarriage God wants you to have if you invest time before getting married into asking wise questions. Making time to consider key questions will help you and your future spouse head in the right direction: one that leads toward God’s purposes for both of you.

Here are some crucial questions to ask before you get married:

Are you willing to grow up? Your own maturity level, and that of your spouse, will determine how well you all can work together in marriage and how likely you all will be to stick with your relationship or give up on it. So each of you needs to honestly assess your current spiritual, emotional, social, and financial maturity by reflecting on issues such as how much self-control you each have, how much you respect authority, how much you can say “no” to some activities so you can say “yes” to those that are best for you, how much peace versus drama you have in your relationships with others, how often you keep your promises and follow through on commitments, whether or not you have a job that pays your bills, and whether or not you’re in debt.

Are you “equally yoked”? It’s never God’s will for you to be yoked (tied together) in marriage with someone who’s not a Christian, because a person who’s not connected to Jesus can’t head in the same direction as you can. Don’t deceive yourself into thinking that you can pull an unbelieving spouse closer to Jesus; what happens instead in marriages between believers and unbelievers is that the unbelieving spouse pulls the believing spouse further away from Jesus. Realize that you can fall in love with anyone you happen to be attracted to, but that doesn’t mean that you should marry them.

Have you talked about money? Disclose all of your financial information to the person you’re considering marrying, and expect full disclosure from him or her, too. Talk about how each of you plans to earn, spend, save, give, and invest money if you get married, and why. If you discover that one or both of you doesn’t currently have a healthy budget or healthy money management attitudes or habits, get help and make changes before getting married to save yourselves from having to go through tremendous stress afterward.

Will you tell the truth? You and your future spouse must tell each other the whole truth about the romantic relationships that you’ve each had with other people previously, regardless of how wild or mild they were. Share all of the details with each other honestly, listen to each carefully, and give each other mercy as God does if you have each sought His forgiveness for your sins and repented of any unhealthy behaviors.

Will you commit? Marriage as God designed it requires a lifetime commitment. So you and the person you’re considering marrying should face your fears about that and discuss issues such as how you plan to handle disagreements and crises that may come up in your future marriage, such as illness and job loss. Determine whether or not both of you are willing to trade the lives you have now for a new life together, and whether or not you’re willing to eliminate the option of divorce and keep turning to God for the strength to keep working on your marriage.

Are you compatible? Realize that just because you love someone doesn’t mean that person is a good match for you. Honestly evaluate which personality traits and personal habits you can live with for many decades in a future marriage, and which will drive your marriage apart. Let go of any person who isn’t truly compatible with you to save you both years of heartache.

Have you communicated your expectations? Discuss each of your expectations about married life, such as where you’d live, where you’d go to church, when you’d start trying to have children and how many children you want, and what types of careers and work hours you each hope to have. Since surprising each other after you’re married will cause lots of stress, it’s much better to talk about your expectations beforehand and see if you can reach agreements before committing to married life together.

Are you ready to marry an entire family? Get to know each other’s familybackgrounds well, since each of you will carry over the attitudes and behaviors that you learned growing up into the new family that you create together. Pursue healing for issues that concern either of you (such as anger management problems or addictions) and end the dating relationship if you discover character problems (such as a lack of integrity) that the person you’re considering marrying isn’t willing to address.

Are you willing to submit? Each of you must be willing to submit to Jesus in obedience in your life together, to express honor and respect for Him. That means mutually following Jesus’ example of loving service to others. Never try to control each other, but instead choose to serve each other even when doing so is difficult, just as Jesus served others when He was on Earth. Through this process in your future marriage, God will help each of you become more like Jesus.

Will you give respect? You each must also be willing to respect each other – even when you don’t think that the other deserves that respect – because God has made you both and highly values you. By choosing to respect your future spouse when he or she doesn’t deserve it, you can motivate your spouse to change and begin acting in ways that are worthy of respect.

Are you ready to love? Realize that love is an action, not just a feeling. Are you prepared to act in love toward your future spouse, even at times when you don’t like his or her behavior? Some of the ways you’ll need to show your love include listening, protecting, providing, and serving each other, no matter what.

6 Kenyan Radio Stations Have Been Shut Down By CAK, Termed Illegal

In an official statement released by CAK 6 radio stations have been shut down.

2013-02-20 radio mic 590

The Communications Authority of Kenya, working together with law enforcement agencies, has executed warrants to search and subsequently impounded equipment used to transmit unauthorized radio broadcast frequencies. This operation is part of investigations with the respect to the illegal operation of six stations namely, Ugwe FM in Rongo Town (97.1Mhz), Radio Faith FM in Oyugis Town (94.1Mhz), Radio Pacho in Siaya Town (88.1Mhz), Sunset Radio in Homa Bay Town (94.9 Mhz), Milambo FM in Migori Town (95.9 Mhz) and Ekialo Kiona in Mfangano Island (99.3Mhz).



The broadcast transmitters had been installed, without the required licences, an act that is considered deliberate breach of the law. The warrants were executed on 9th and 10th April 2015.

Set up and operation of communications apparatus without authorization from the Authority is prohibited in Section 35 of the Kenya Information and Communications Amendment Act, 2013. Additionally, all broadcasting services must be licenced by the Authority. The law also prohibits the establishment or use of any radio communication station or apparatus unless issued with the relevant licence.

Transmitters located in non-designated broadcasting sites are bound to cause harmful interferences to duly licensed services including broadcasters, aviation, and other critical services. Transmissions from such illegal stations do cause interferences in neighbouring countries, eliciting complaints from regulators in the region. The Authority has received several complaints from other broadcasters with respect to interferences to their stations. In some instances, the interferences had been so intense that the services of other broadcasters using duly authorized frequencies had been rendered completely inoperable.

Illegal transmissions also place the safety of our airspace in jeopardy due to such interferences on radio communication between pilots and the control tower.

The implications of unauthorized use of frequencies are quite adverse and include the following:
• Sub-standard installations cause interference to existing licensed broadcasters.
• They are a threat to national security and safety. Nyanza is a lightning prone areas and such substandard installations can therefore jeopardize the safety of residents since the installations lack the necessary earthing systems;
• The continued establishment of unauthorized transmissions is increasing incidences of harmful interferences to other spectrum users including aviation, thus presenting a threat to safety of life. This may result in Kenya being boycotted/blacklisted by airlines leading to extensive losses in tourism and other economic activities including investment;
• The continued use of unauthorized frequencies amounts to an act of impunity and flies in the face of the regulatory requirement to provide an equal platform for all players; and
• Unauthorized use of frequencies denies the Authority the spectrum resources to address plurality and diversity and to cater for devolution requirements as envisaged in the constitution.
The Authority has executed the search warrants with sole focus on the six unauthorized FM broadcast frequencies in use in Nyanza Region. The Authority takes cognizance of the need to mitigate the severe implications that arise from illegal use of frequencies in order to safeguard the safety and integrity of our airspace, and protection of investments in the ICT sector.

NOMA, YANI KALI : Willy Paul’s New Song ‘Vigelegele’ Is Too Far From THE GOSPEL, Your Thoughts ?

We need your thoughts on this topic of Willy Paul’s new song Vigelegele.

msafi noma post

The song is his new release after he did Mamangu which he dedicated to his mother. Love him or hate him Willy Paul is talented but this new song has just gone too far from the gospel?

Willy Paul started well in his song called Rabuka, then went to You Never Know then somewhere along the way he might have lost his way in Missi, Mamangu and now Vigelegele.

  1. The song was launched just days after Bahati launched his new song Lover and it seems this song was released in a hurry. There was little time to work on the lyrics as you could feel that the artiste probably jumped into the booth to compose the song with little time given to work on the content

  2. The beat is from a secular song. [No need to state the song].

  3. The lyrics are targeted to the listener to enjoy the song. As stated “Ngoma Noma, Yaani Kali”. Little attention is given to listener who might need hope in JESUS. ?

  4. Why couldn’t the producer advice him on the song ?

  5. The song is good and can be played by many radio stations ?

  6. Does this prove that most artistes need spiritual mentors ?

Don’t forget to pray for most gospel artistes they go through challenges in life.

Share your thoughts.

Kanyari on the show revealed that he is a false prophet who is out there to take money from people who are desperately looking for a new opportunities that are wealth related.

He even stated that he doesn’t pray for people to go to Heaven as his purpose is purely money related.

With this said, Kanyari took his comments a notch higher by stating that his purpose is all about money, inspired by the book of  Malachi 3:10 which he renamed to seed money of 310 shillings.

GOD Changed Me : Kanze Dena Shares About Her Struggle With Low Self Esteem And Contemplating Suicide 3 Times

Citizen Tv news anchor Kanze Dena is one of the best Swahili news casters we have in the field of reporting and journalism. With all the money, fame and beauty any person out there will think that Kanze is a perfect being but she is person like you and me saved by the Grace of GOD.

Kanze Bi Msafwari

Many people look in the mirror and see someone they don’t like very much. They see faults, flaws and failures. They feel shame, embarrassment and maybe even anger toward themselves. The same applies for Kanze Dena who has for not once , twice but 3 times contemplated committing suicide.

kanze lulu post

Kanze Dena on Sunday morning broke down on air while sharing about her struggle with low self steem in a brief interview that she had on Kubamba tv. Kanze Dena who hosts Citizen Nipashe every weekend with Lulu Hassan revealed how her life was not easy behind the camera after leaving her newscast.

Kanze Dena who is a single mum living with her 9 year old son called Amani, revealed on how living with her son has made her to question her role as her mother. Having to take that step of living alone with her son was one of the toughest decisions she has ever made.

“I would come on air and read the news on a happy mood but inside i would be struggling with low self esteem. I have questioned my self several times if i am a good mother to my son who is now 9 years.” Kanze Dena said before breaking into tears.

Psalm 139:13

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. 

Later on she recovered her strength and continued to say that she found hope in GOD who says in his word that we are created in a wonderful image.

“I came to a place where I started believing that GOD knows Me and started telling myself that I am beautifully and wonderfully made.  Every day is a continuous process and right now I believe in who GOD says I am.”

Low self-esteem can result from a variety of factors, according to Celeste Gertsen, Ph.D, a clinical psychologist in Port Jefferson, Long Island, who specializes in helping people overcome self-esteem struggles. “Low self-esteem can stem from problems in the family, societal problems (such as poverty or discrimination) or an internalization of loss,”.

The future is still bright for Kanze Dena and GOD  is in control.

6 Powerful Life Lessons From The Book Of Esther

The Book of Esther is a dramatic account which can give us insight into God’s special and purposeful plan for our lives. The story gives us six powerful lessons about courage, divine timing and God’s supreme love. As scripture reveals, Esther is a Jewish woman living in Persia and reared by her cousin Mordecai. She was taken to the King of the Persian Empire to become a part of his harem—but because there was something special about Esther, he made her queen. Mordecai, however, didn’t tell the king about a major detail—Esther’s Jewish heritage.

esther 2

I imagine Esther as a drop-dead gorgeous woman with flawless olive skin and a tantalizing personality. She charmed King Xerxes so much that after deposing his prior queen, he could have chosen any woman he wanted—but he chose Esther.

Of course there is a scoundrel in the story, too. Haman is a vengeful and egotistical advisor to the king. He hated Mordecai for refusing to bow down to him, so he plotted to destroy the Jewish people. Haman told the king, “There is a certain people scattered abroad and dispersed among the peoples in all the provinces of your kingdom whose customs are different from those of all other people and who do not obey the king’s laws; it is not in the king’s best interest to tolerate them” (Esther 3:8NIV). The king gave him authority to handle the fate of the Jewish people. In return, Haman announced a government-issued edict of genocide.

Book_of_Esther_Chapter_ 3

What could the queen do for her people? The king had not requested her presence in a month. Did his affection for her wane? Was she a powerless sex partner? Of all the Jews, only Esther had access to the king. Mordecai persuaded Esther to speak to the king on behalf of the Jewish people reminding her of her unique place in history and that silence is not an option. In one of the most poetic Biblical passages, Mordecai speaks of God’s purposeful timing: “Who knows but that you have come to a royal position for such a time as this?” (Esther 4:14 NIV). In other words, Mordecai lets Esther know that even her outer beauty was for a reason and would not go to waste!

Esther knew, of course, that going to the king unsolicited could be her death sentence. Anyone who came into the king’s presence without being summoned could be executed. So what does she do? Before making a life or death decision, she calls for the Jewish people to join her on a 3-day fast. Following the fast she put on her best royal robes, approached the king, and told him of Haman’s plot against her people. The Jewish people were saved, Haman was hanged on the same gallows that had been prepared for Mordecai, and Esther received Haman’s estate. This dramatic unfolding of events moves like a novel and played like a great chess game with several life lessons.

Lesson #1: God has a plan for our lives

Mordecai nailed it when he said, “For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’sfamily will perish. And who knows but that you have come to the royal palace for such a time as this” (Esther 4:14 NIV). God loved the Jewish people. And, he didn’t create Esther’s beauty and finesse for her and her alone. Esther was placed in a royal position to assist in the delivery of God’s divine plan.

Lesson #2: We are given divine moments to alter circumstances

As believers, there are no such things as accidents or coincidences. God’s timing is providential. Esther’s divine moment of providence came by accepting her responsibility to go to the king. However, Mordecai was clear when he said to Esther that she could be the one who saved the people, or not. God will use you only if you’re ready—or he will find someone else.

Lesson #3: We must stand with courage

“I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish” (Esther 4:16 NIV). Esther was willing to die to save her people. Sometimes we must stand in courage, even when it is not popular to do so, and risk it all.

Lesson #4: Fasting and prayer brings clarity and hope for deliverance

God is not mentioned in the Book of Esther even once. But Esther was clear that in this particular situation, a heavenly response was needed for an earthly situation. Esther needed direction. When we need God’s grace, fasting and prayer opens the portals for spiritual growth, removes distractions and places us on a path to humility.

Lesson #5: God demands obedience

Esther’s obedience saved God’s people from genocide. The reality is that Esther didn’t know what would happen when she approached the king. She acted in obedience and by doing so she saved a nation and received the best. We don’t get a pass on this one.

Lesson #6: God uses everything and everybody for his divine purpose

No part of our lives is untouched. God is in control of every aspect, whether we want him to be or not, and there is nothing that is not subject to him (Hebrews 2:8 NIV). And, the best thing we can do for our lives is to search for and surrender to his will.
