We must clean up our gospel music industry – Nairobi News

Published

A couple of days ago, a woman in her early 20s unravelled the most grotesque sex scandal in the Kenyan gospel industry.

According to her story, she reached out to a gospel artiste known as ‘Hopekid’ and after a series of flirty messages, he invited her over to his house in Nairobi.

She came all the way from Nakuru, unbeknown to her that she was being set up for an orgy with another gospel artiste known as D.K Kwenye Beat.

The young woman would later ‘hook up’ with DK Kwenye Beat in a brief sexual encounter in which she contracted a sexually transmitted infection.

When the story broke, social media was awash with accusations and counter-accusations, forcing the two gospel musicians to come out apologising and begging for forgiveness from their fans.

Accompanied by fellow musician ‘Size 8’, the young men came clean and blamed the devil while Size 8 asked us to forgive and forget.

Kenya’s gospel music industry has moved from being the noble, upright and honourable cause it was in the days of Rueben Kigame, Mary Atieno and Esther Wahome, to become one of the most scandalous and shameful industries we have in this country.

GOSPEL SCANDAL

I don’t know whether to laugh or cry at the fact that Kenya’s gospel industry has more scandals and rot than the secular music industry.

What we have today is not a gospel music industry, but a modern-day Sodom and Gomorrah riddled with all manner of hypocrites purporting to sing for the Lord.

How we moved from Adamu na Eva to AsusuKanungo and Mateke should be reason enough to scare us witless.

We have famous and moneyed gospel artistes taking advantage of their young female fans, sexually abusing them and racking up baby mamas like trophies in a cabinet.

The other day, we had gospel DJ Mo wax lyrical about how he took his then girlfriend — and now wife — Size 8, through a series of ‘tests’ to see if she was any good for him. He said he did that because girls ‘worship’ him thanks to his massive success as a gospel DJ.

Now, the gospel couple is caught up in one of the most shameful gospel scandals in which their underlings, DK Kwenye Beat and Hopekid are accused of sexual misconduct.

SEXUAL MISCONDUCT

I don’t know who this concerns, but it is time to fix the Kenyan gospel industry.

It is time to bring some order to an industry that once brought us the likes of Jemima Thiong’o and Angela Chibalonza.

We cannot have every charlatan with dreadlocks, sagging pants and a pair of knock-off sneakers proclaim to sing gospel music, all the while living questionable lifestyles and admitting to sexual misconduct.

Yes, I am judging you. We hold you to a higher moral standard because of the message you carry — the gospel.

At this point, I would like to bring to the attention of the Director of Public Prosecution, the matter of these two gospel artistes: DK Kwenye Beat and Hopekid.

Mr DPP, we have these men on record admitting to subjecting a woman to sexual assault. If the young people of this country mean anything to the office of the DPP, then this office ought to personally take up this matter and have them arrested and punished severely for their crimes.

SERIOUS CRIME

Rape is a serious crime, and so is knowingly infecting another person with a sexually transmitted disease. I wish to implore the DPP to ensure that the young woman in question will be the last victim of these two young men masquerading as gospel artists.

They must be used an example of the consequences of sexual assault so that no other woman will have to go through what she was subjected to.

To Size 8: What you did was wrong and distasteful. I understand you are protecting your business, but you crossed a line here. Sitting down with a man who admitted to sexually assaulting a young woman and asking us to ‘forget’ the matter is the height of betrayal of your fellow womenfolk.

You should know better, Size 8, having been once a young woman navigating the music industry.

Coming across as a rape apologist is the last thing you want associated with the brand you have worked so hard to build. Be very careful.

After declaring that long distance relationships aren’t for her, Sherlyne Anyango might have bagged herself a new mzungu boyfriend. It’s barely days since she left the country to go to the States to ‘hustle’. According to her, it’s easier to hustle in the States with her twerking talent.

Love At First Sight?

Well, she moved on quickly! This was the reaction of most of her fans after Sherlyne went live with her new catch. Most people were surprised by how fast she possibly got a boyfriend. But she hasn’t made it clear.

While this might seem unfair to her Kenyan bae, Oga Obinna, it was a mutual agreement between them to dissolve their relationship due to the distance between them.

”I’m a single boy again now😪😱!! Now with the standards you set who will fit in🤷🏿 who will fill your shoes??But Si Ni Life… But for now Kill Them with your AWESOMENESS and SECURE THE BAG!!! Don’t let nobody tell you otherwise. Plus there will always be space for you in my Heart and Kidney🙊🙈🙏🏿.”

In line to this, Sherlyne had also declared how much she misses Obinna and wrote back to him;

  ”Don’t make me cry. That’s life 😞😞. I feel bad. I miss you badly.”

Well, turns out she won’t be missing him any more after getting a new catch. Obinna has not yet responded to Sherlyne’s video posted on her Insta stories. I bet he’s not happy seeing her with another man.

Tips to help you get the perfect blazer Eve woman

 Choosing a blazer is key as it can either break or make your outfit (Image: Pinterest)

 

When it comes to buying or tailoring a new blazer, most people think it’s all about getting what fits. Even though that is one of the most vital things to focus on when selecting blazers, there are other things you need to look out for in order to have a perfect and versatile blazer.

Versatile is not just about being able to match most pieces in your closet, but something that will enhance your outfits and define your best features while at it. In case you are wondering on where to start with buying a blazer, start here:

 Always go for a colour that will pair well with most pieces in your closet (Image: Pinterest)

Yes, this is the first thing you should consider before making or buying yourself a blazer. You need to check your closet and consider the most dominant colour and pieces, can they be layered with a blazer or paired together?

Once that is set, you are good to go, though the more colourful a blazer is the more fun you will have pairing it with other pieces.

When selecting the perfect blazer always be very careful not to choose a small blazer. You might confuse a small blazer for a fitting one.

It should not be too tight that your shoulders cannot move in it or you can barely button it.

Although ladies are lucky they can go with any arm length, because it can be considered fashionable, ensure that it is your size. Also, avoid going for extra-large coats that will drown you and hide your best features.

 The design and texture of a blazer will play heavily on how good you look (Image: Pinterest)

A blazer is in between a suit jacket and a hoodie. Meaning, it should be able to pass for official and casual events. Let your guide be what you are buying it for.

There are different kinds of blazers ranging from open front blazers, single breasted blazers, belted ones, the list is endless.

Always go for a blazer that resonates with your style and closet items. Also, long blazers are classier and versatile than the shorter boyfriend ones. This is in terms of versatility.

Are you looking for a linen blazer, cotton or the suit material fabric? Do you want it shiny or matte? Do you need one with metal studded elements or with embellished buttons like the army? The kind of texture you go for will determine the way you dress your blazer.

Although blazers are meant to match with all outfits, the kind of design you go for can either limit your outfit choices or broaden your matching game.

 The longer the blazer, the more you can play around with your pieces (Image: Pinterest)

They say the longer the blazer, the double the respect. You already know what I mean by this. Longer blazers are more eye catching, trendy and versatile. It will be easier for you to pair them to a tiny skirt, pencil trouser or palazzos.

Also did I mention how well they pair with crop tops? Yes, when buying a blazer, the length is very important.

Residents of Pipeline Transami area are decrying poor drainage system that has caused sewage water to overflow in their area of residence.

The residents claim that the overflowing sewage is not only putting their lives at risk but also causing air pollution.

They have called on Nairobi Metropolitan Services and Nairobi City Water and Sewage Company to come on board and expand the sewer lines before more areas are flooded with raw human wastes coming from the blocked pipes.
“We want Major Badi and our leaders to resolve this menace immediately. It’s terrible many have been forced to shift their businesses because of the foul smell,” they said.
Pastor Joe Ndivoh of Word Evangelistic Explosion Ministries says that they have been forced to call off the Sunday School Service to protect the children from the smelly sewage.
‘‘We now fear that if prompt action is not taken then we will have a bigger health problem than this because we fear there could be an outbreak of water-borne disease anytime,’’ Pastor Ndivoh added.
