Brian had participated in the Mimi fashion blogger competition that was initiated by Julie Gichuru and after several weeks of voting he became the top winner of Ksh.100,000/-

Muriuki Kagiri walked away with the cash prize and a photo shoot, the 1st runner up bagged a cash prize of Ksh. 25,000 and a MIMI voucher while the 2nd runners up walked away with Ksh. 10, 000 and a MIMI Goodie bag.

“I had not expected such a high turnout of blogger submissions,” says Julie as she gave  the statistics of the competition. “I had only estimated around maybe 30 or so bloggers but by the time we had closed the submission period, the numbers were in their hundreds! It was really overwhelming.”

What shocked Julie even more was the fact that there was a male blogger who had made it to the final cut. She even expressed her sentiments saying that she really did not expect him to win, but she was proved wrong once Muriuki started gathering more and more votes.

This comes in light of the fact that the fashion industry is mostly run by females, be it in designing, modeling or even blogging, but we were clearly proven wrong.

SAD!! Top Kenyan Gospel Artistes “Conned” By Event Organizer

This is one of the stories that we got during a recent talk with one of  Kenya’s gospel artistes. Is this something that is now going on for a while or its something that just happens and no one listens to?

The side of the story we heard is that an event organizer “failed” to pay the agreed amount to some of our Kenyan gospel artistes.
On Saturday, the 17th of August, at an event dubbed ‘The Recharge’ held at Nairobi Cinema, organized by The Recruit Wing, turned out to be one of such events.

fell victim after showing up for the event, only to be told by the organizers, that they wouldn’t be able to pay them the amount agreed upon, keeping in mind that the artistes had cancelled all other events that they had been approached for scheduled on that fateful day.
A scuffle that lasted for almost two hours ensued when the organizer
Jeffrey Kamau
identified as Jeffrey Kamau (pictured) tried to throw a punch at Didi of Kelele Takatifu after they said they wouldn’t go on stage before coming to an agreement that would favor both the stakeholders despite the sudden breach of contract.
“Hawa watu wamezoea wasanii sana ati juu wameokoka,” a fan could be heard shouting a midst the crowd that had gathered.It is evident that such occurrences are not new in the fast rising Gospel Industry, as event organizers use artistes’ names in order to hype their events only for them to turn out to be a well-orchestrated HOAX.Fans usually turn out in large numbers only to be disappointed that artiste they saw ‘on the poster’ was a no-show, not knowing the events that unfold behind the scenes.

“Its not even about the money, its about respect and guys sticking to their word,” Ben of Christ Cycoz said.

The speeding matatu came to contact with the curb and flipped over, and slid for about 200 meters on its side before coming to a complete halt.  Luckily he only sustained injuries on his leg and was released from the hospital.

We talked to him yesterday and he says : ” He could not believe what happened during thatd day and he just thanks the Lord for saving him.” Good news he is now okay and he attended Mwafaka Awards Nomination Gala on Tuesday Night.
