Huddah vs Kate

President Uhuru Kenyatta’s promise to pay artistes during this quarantine period until things normalise has ignited mixed reactions.

During his recent speech, the President announced that the government had allocated Ksh. 100 million to artists.

‘I direct the Ministry of Sports, Culture, and Heritage to avail Ksh100M from the sports Fund to our artistes, actors, and musicians during the period of the covid-19 pandemic so they continue to entertain their fellow brothers and sisters through TV, radio and the internet,’ he said in a statement.

This didn’t go well with a majority of Kenyans, and some came out saying Uhuru had misplaced priorities while a handful supported him.

Kate actress was among the few who praised President Uhuru for the move and taking to social media, she wrote,

Why is there so much bile about this ? Please make me understand. I know so many artistes who are almost sleeping hungry or houses closed because of this pandemic, yet still you turn on your radio or tv and they put a smile on your face ?! AMA labda wewe si wa locals (as the bourgeoisie say) Mimi Niko Sawa and I thank God and will continue to Entertain, but najua wengi wanahitaji this help. Let’s be human. Thank you my president @ukenyatta God bless you ??.

Check out mixed reactions from Kenyans;

Huddah Monroe Almost $ 1 million directed to entertainers while people don’t know where to get their next meal with the lockdown! I pity my country, people. Kenya is hell. Can you imagine not even directed to healthcare or food for those in slums.

merryanejay Priorities of this nation though!

wambuguwills He should think of equipping hospitals with ventilators because that is what is needed now,not to even mention personal protective equipment to those attending to patients. We already have enough entertainment from our TVs,radios and music??‍♀️??‍♀️(This was honestly a misplaced priority )

peshnny Those same “celebrities” ndio wanatusumbua hapa IG with their “lavish” lifestyles.. The fake lives are catching up!

Ciiru kagai @kateactress 1.the president seems to have some misdirected priorities and 2. his communication was not good. The fact that he says the money will come from the sports fund people question if they are the artists’ royalties or just a Tocken given to assist Artists. He would have maybe put it in a way to explain that artists have adversely been affected by the pandemic since no performances and not saying it’s for them to entertain people. I mean even now without it ..Artists are doing a good job despite the challenges that it comes with it now. Priority comes in the sense that ; People are already entertained by memes,music, movies (Art) what he should do is go down to the basic needs of the people like food and housing. When they put measure and directives that will address the current felt needs of every Kenyan,whether an artist,doctor, mama mboga,the unemployed etc. He needs to do things uniformly and not selectively. More so,I hope that the money will be distributed well among the artists so that even that young suffering artist benefits and atleast give a meaning to the move.

suzy_kenyan Uhuru could put priorities first, cant support this at all there is loads of poor wananchi who cant even afford 3 meals a day halafu mnapewa hio pesa yote eti tuu entertain us? this is just another Scam

fay_fayie Is there any artist living in slums like other ordinary people in kenya?? No, none, nd Kati ya food nd entertainment gani n basic need hapo?? Nd how do you entertain empty stomach??? Nonsenses msituletee upuzi,, this is kenya?

ndinda_jones Artists in other countries are coming out with the small savings they have to share and fend for the most privileged families and homeless people who can’t even see food while you want us to make you understand my question is what do you want us to make you understand anyway humanity is lost in the world at the moment let’s hope we will combat the virus it’s a man eat man society

glam1polish The tv or radio should pay them. This 100 million should go to the poor. We have enough problems already to deal with musicians cases. Kwani wapi pesa they earned before this crisis. ???Issa scam!!! Gova in scamming in the name of entertainment

beedz_kenya Kwani corona niya musicians tu

kellenwandi @kateactress Right now Kate we don’t need entertainment,what for? When our stomaches are empty? I understand when you said that most of our entertainers are sleeping hungry too but they don’t deserve any special treatment from our local Kenyans…personally I won’t seat here to listen to you jokes which usually make my day without something to put in my mouth

sonia_carols We believe they have money because they’re busy faking it!!! Peaneni vitu kwa ground tukaange tukijua mko na shida. Nonsense!!!!

g.wanjir The president shloud consider all the Kenyans…there is alot that is happening on closed doors ..ppo are also sleeping hungry. So si artist tu.. tena 100M..na madoci wanacomplain kuh masks na sarnitizers.. really now.PRIORITIZE

luciouscheiz Pure bulshit instead of government focusing on how to reduce food prices so that the general public can benefit. They are busy giving out money to specific groups, je? mama mboga

aryn_jess_ Reality check @kateactress you know of many artists who sleep hungry but you should also know of many Kenyans who are homeless and are out in the streets the people in kibera and wherever else who have lost their job and don’t know what to have for dinner tonight. There’s children out there in the streets and probably haven’t had a meal and you ask why people are so bile. People out here are really suffering we don’t need entertainment because it won’t make anything better some people don’t even recognize these so called entertainers.

michael_.k  It was just last year we heard stories of Kenyans dying of hunger and im sure the situation has not changed but you want to fund 100 million to Musicians wenye wakona pesa. MADAM, KENYANS ARE NOT FOOLS!!!!!!!

Check out the multimillion mansion Jalang’o lives in!

Published

Loading...

Radio presenter Jalang’o is a man who loves the good life. Just from what he wears, drives and finally where he finally lives!

After keeping his home private for years, the Milele FM presenter ended up showing off his house unintentionally through a video on his page. From his caption, he was for sure on a mission to promote his YouTube channel.

For days now Jalang’o has been trying to clean up his act and name after Blogger Edgar Obare exposed him for cheating on his wife. According to reports Jalas and his WhatsApp group friends would invite young girls to Ng’ong where they would party; and have fun later on at some certain rented apartment in Nairobi.

The Jalang’os

Jalang’os home

Well, we can’t tell why his wife Amina Chao wasn’t enough for the presenter but all in all Jalang’o has since learnt the importance of staying faithful to his wife,

Anyway as seen on the screenshots shared below, Jalang’o undeniably lives at one of the most fanciest homes in Nairobi. We are not sure whether the house is a rental or one that he bought; but the truth is, Jalang’os home is goals!

This is where he lives with his newly wedded wife and rumor has it that the couple already has children together; but as usual, Jalang’o refuses to publicize his family just to keep people talking online.

Jalang’o

Employees

As much as Jalang’o image has tarnished by his extra marital affairs; we also can’t help but applaud him for being a good boss!

In his latest videos shared on Instagram stories, the Milele FM host is often seen hanging out and bonding with his Gardners; something most bosses would never do! However as for Jalas, he simply can’t forget where he started from and for this reason, has every right to treat his employees as his simple friends. Anyway check out photos of his home below.

Why we need to touch and be touched: The Standard

Physical touch triggers the release of dopamine and serotonin (Photo: Shutterstock)

In the 13th century, Germany’s King Frederick II came up with a diabolical study to find out if children would learn to speak if they weren’t spoken to. He wanted to prove that they would naturally speak German.

For the research, Frederick took babies from their mothers at birth and placed them under the care of nurses. The nurses were strictly forbidden from speaking to the babies or even in their hearing. Frederick also imposed a second rule: the nurses weren’t allowed to unnecessarily touch the infants.

But to Frederick’s disappointment, the study had to be cut short because all the babies died. In 1248, an Italian historian named Salimbene di Adam observed: “They could not live without petting.”

In an increasingly touch-averse world, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic, we can forget the power of physical touch. But as evidence shows, touch deprivation can have far-reaching, negative health implications.

Health benefits of touch

Kisses, hugs, holding hands and pets have profound health benefits for both the giver and the receiver. 

Various studies have shown that touch signals safety and trust, soothing our anxieties. In a 2006 study by Jim Coan and Richard Davidson, participants getting a painful blast of white noise while laying in an fMRI scanner showed heightened brain activity usually linked to responding to threat and stress. However, participants who had their romantic partner stroking their arm didn’t show this reaction at all. Basically, touch switched off their threat response, making them less anxious.

How? This effect can be explained by the fact that physical touch triggers the release of dopamine and serotonin. These are two neurotransmitters that help regulate your mood as well as relieve stress and anxiety. A 2004 study published in the Journal of Psychosomatic Research, patients with breast cancer showed an increase in dopamine and serotonin levels after receiving massage therapy.

Various studies by the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine show that touch can help boost natural killer cells that attack bacteria, viruses and cancer cells. In a 2015 set of studies, touch was shown to boost the immune systems of people who had been exposed to the common cold. After exposing the participants to the virus, researchers found that the people who had more touch from their social interactions battled infection more effectively and exhibited fewer signs of illness.

Touch has been shown to increase the time spent in restorative deep stages of sleep. This leads to other health benefits, including stress reduction, lower heart rates and lower blood pressure?
