Frankie Kiarie aka Frankie Justgymit has finally addressed rumours that he’s a deadbeat father.
Responding to one of the most asked questions by one of his followers if it’s true he’s a deadbeat father, Frankie via his YouTube channel. said,
Each week I send money for my children’s upkeep. I send Sh6,000 and personally I spend like Sh2,500. I pay Sh150,000 for my son’s school fees per semester at Montessori. My mum helps me with a percentage of that.
My children have always had two nannies until recently and I was paying both of them. My baby mama and I had an agreement on how we going to be splitting nannies salary, I pay a specific amount, and then she tops up and that’s what we’ve been doing for the past year.
I really don’t see where the part of the deadbeat dad comes in based on that explanation. Yesterday (Saturday, June 11) I ACTUALLY Paid for online classes on zoom. I want to ask you guys to really think hard about what a deadbeat dad means because I take care of my kids at all times.
Frankie, who’s currently dating lawyer Corazon Kwamboka, who’s heavily pregnant with their first child revealed that he and Maureen were not married but engaged.
He explained how they tried seeking the help of their pastor to salvage their marriage but it didn’t work.
Asked if he pays rent, he said,
When we were together in 2016, we were living in Ruaka and had a really good house where we stayed for four years. During our son’s (firstborn) first birthday I proposed to Maureen and it got to a point the landlady decided to increase the rent and used to complain to my mum about that. She told me ‘This is your family right now and I never want to hear you complain about rent again’ and I was like okay. AND she said, ‘my house in Westlands I want to give it to you as a gift an engagement gift. The people who were living there have moved out and was thinking of renting it out but since I’ve seen you’ve become a man and you gonna have a family I wanna pass that house to you…’
The fitness trainer added that,
That’s where my children stay. Personally I’m not a malicious person. Right now my goal is to create a conducive environment for my children to grow up in. The house is close to school and it makes it easier for me to visit them.
Frankie went ahead to narrate how his second child made his first steps after the breakup. He said his greatest fear was that his kids would forget him after not seeing them for three weeks after the breakup. Frankie got emotional and shed tears while speaking about his first hangout with the kids after he and Maureen parted ways.
Kenyans reacted to Frankie’s video with many applauding him for everything he has done for his children. Comments include;
Wendy Darian Nothing beats a man who loves and provides for his children no matter the situation! Whoever said dead beat who are you because men outchea be clowning their baby mommas and don’t provide for any single damn thing! Kudos Frankie keep doing you and setting the pace for men out there.
Peggy Juma This should have been a red table talk
Janepher Khisa So this boy is not a bad person as people are trying to portray him
lucille achieng This guy, mad respect he’s actually “not trying” he’s literally doing the most. whose chopping onions with me … Moral of the story ‘Don’t judge a book by its cover’
Leon Muigai Society always paints the man as the bad one, comes up with terms such a deadbeat. I broke up with my ex-wife, I foot her bills pay child support, but she still manages to convince others how deadbeat I am. It’s curse we have to learn to live with as men.
Kirima Doreen Not many men can give up their houses/homes for the sake of the kids..
May you find peace and be happy with whoever makes you happy🌹
Pascalia Bigogo Woow…I really wonder why people were judging this guy…he’s really a nice guy
Rose Kendra Wooooow Social Media though….this Guy is nothing close to what Social Media has been Portraying him…..totally different person. Thank for this Video and Letting us Know you for the real you …you are.I wish you Guys the Best❤❤❤❤❤
Prudence Senerwa How Frankie has a whole smile talking about his kids is a whole mood and I can say he is genuine Not all Fathers are dads
Carol M And he has given her a home… Things that we are never told so as to respect the other person. Maureen aki renovate that house, she didn’t even think to tell us it belonged to Frankie through the parents… Women we need to shape up, this other gender is really trying.
Ann Mwihki I’m a single mum and I can actually say ur great man, Maureen should respect ur decision for now, ur thea for ur kids much respect, some of were left by our baby dad and they never ask what he eat or how he school and whenever sees the kid wants to take a picture, nilikua nimekujudge but nimekuvulia kofia
Singer speaks after attacking lover at WCB signee Zuchu’s star-studded concert
56 minutes ago
On 18 July, there was fanfare at the Mlimani City Hall in Dar es Salaam as WCB signee Zuchu held a thanksgiving concert months after her debut EP, I Am Zuchu. The event dubbed ‘Ahsante Nashukuru’ mainly featured performances by artistes from the WCB stable and attracted the whos-who in the Tanzanian entertainment and political scenes.
However, singer Gigy Money who also performed made the headlines for the wrong reasons after getting into a scuffle with her lover during the much-publicised concert.

Peaceful arrival, later chaos
Moments earlier, Gigy and her Nigerian man were seen arriving arm in arm at the event whose highlight featured Zuchu receiving a brand new car from WCB head honcho Diamond Platnumz. Donning matching outfits, the couple was spotted on the red carpet as the paparazzi scrambled to capture the moment. However, all hell breaks loose later and viral videos depict the visibly angered Nigerian arguing with a bouncer at the entrance. After a tense confrontation, Gigy’s man is seen being led by the screaming bouncer towards the exit. Shortly after, a similarly irritated Gigy emerges and follows the pair.
“Gigy! Wewe Gigy wewe!” a woman in the background is heard dissuading the singer from pursuing them but the singer pays no heed and heads for the pair.
“You want to beat me?” the boyfriend is heard asking an approaching Gigy as the bouncer acts as a barrier between them. The bouncer manages to steer the incensed man towards the exit as Gigy follows behind, hurling obscenities.
At some point, a barefoot Gigy turns into a sprint before throwing one of her shoes which hits the man who then responds with an insult. Another bouncer finally intervenes and the two are separated. Gigy then asks for her vehicle so she can head home before warning the press against sharing videos of the incident.
Though the cause of their tiff is still unknown Gigy later made reference to the shocking incident in a social media post, hinting that alcohol had a part to play in the fracas. In another post, Gigy shared a photo alongside her estranged lover writing: “My mad man looked handsome before his demons arose and mine arose too.”
‘Running over Ali Kiba’
Gigy is not new controversy and recently said she’d run over her ex, singer Ali Kiba for breaking her heart.
“I will knock all of them down, I mean I will kill them. In fact, I will flatten them like chapatis. The first person I will knock down and kill is Ali Kiba. Actually, I don’t need a weak car, I need a Fuso so that when I knock him down I will be sure he doesn’t survive,” Gigy told Ayo TV.
Dating Kiba brothers
Gigy had in the past admitted to dating both Ali Kiba and his younger brother, Abdu Kiba. She solely laid the blame on Chekecha singer for pursuing her despite knowing that she’d been with his younger brother. Abdu expressed being heartbroken after learning the two had a fling, prompting him to marry.
“I was very hurt on hearing that Ali was dating Gigy Money because I dated her first before she became famous. But it’s alleged that Ali didn’t know. It hurt me for a while till when I married,” said Abdu.

Why Jahmby Kokai is happy her TV anchor dream never came true

Popular media personality Jahmby Koikai narrated how her first attempt at auditioning as a TV host backfired and she was sent home on the first day of the audition. Reliving her prime days, Jahmby narrated how she was determined to follow her dream of becoming a news anchor after completing her degree.
“There was a reality show that was running on one major TV channel here in Kenya, searching for the next top news anchor. I’ve always had the knack for news. At the time, I was working at Metro FM. Walked to my boss and asked him if he was ok with me participating in this competition. He agreed to it.
“Auditions were at Film Studios. The queue stretched all the way to the showground. I was at the back kabisa. Imagine 300 people before you. Then we got the briefing paper and it indicated, ‘no persons with experience in a media house allowed to participate in this audition’. Mimi Jahmby Koikai, nirudi home after watu 300 kukuwa mbele yangu?” she posed.
According to the endometriosis survivor, she went ahead to audition for the position despite the warning and was the first contestant to be sent packing.
“So I stayed in line until I got to the audition room. The judges were a few people I was in campus with. I felt a wave of despair. Like I’m here auditioning, yet my classmates will be judging me? I did my thing and I was considered. We got into the house and we were assigned to different groups. I was the group leader and we won the challenge. Later that evening, we were driven back to Film Studios for a briefing. The presenter of the show said some of us have to go home.
“My name was called out first amongst other great people. We were dropped home. I cried. It felt like I’d lost such a great opportunity. My mom and late grandma were so sad cos they loved to watch me do the news,” she narrated.
Later, Jahmby auditioned for another TV opportunity only to miss out as well.
“Then came another opportunity over 10 years ago, I saw a TV ad and decided to apply for the news anchor position. I didn’t get the job.”
However, due to endometriosis, Jahmby was forced to put her dreams on hold and concentrate on getting better. According to her, it is as though God had better plans for her and is grateful to not have gotten the jobs.
“I battled severe endometriosis in silence for over 19 years. I think of how engaging the newsroom is and I’m grateful I wasn’t in that space. I’d have utilized all my sick-leaves and off-days and just declared redundant.”

I’m grateful I did not get the job even though I felt dejected at the time. I battled severe Endometriosis in silence for over 19years. I think of how engaging the newsroom is and I’m grateful I wasn’t in that space. I’d have utilised all my sick-leaves and off-days and just declared redundant. There are many people like me who are bound by chronic illness and cannot do the things they love. I share your pain. But there’s hope. I’m grateful to God for His reminder that He will restore to you all the years that the locusts have eaten. Also Jer 29:11
