Amina Abdi Shows DJ Joe Mfalme Support Despite Arrest

Following the arrest of DJ Joe Mfalme in connection with the death of a DCI officer, media personality Amina Abdi has publicly voiced her belief in his innocence.

Abdi, a former colleague of Mfalme on ‘The Turn Up’ show, took to TikTok to praise his character, describing him as hardworking and kind. She emphasized her belief that he wouldn’t harm anyone and expressed her support during this difficult time.

I’ve known Joe my entire career. He is an absolute professional who takes his work very seriously. A true gentleman. A religious and kind man who takes care of soooo many people. I hope blogs will have the same energy to post his story when he is acquitted of all charges. Praying for my brother. He could NEVER do some sh*t like this!!!!!

Mfalme’s Arrest and Allegations

Mfalme was arrested on March 24th after an incident in Kikuyu allegedly involving an assault that resulted in the death of a DCI officer. Reports claim a confrontation arose early in the morning between Mfalme’s team and the officer, leading to the officer allegedly scratching Mfalme’s car. This reportedly escalated into a physical altercation where the officer was pulled from his vehicle and assaulted.

The injured officer, identified as Kitosi, was taken to the police station where his condition allegedly worsened. He was subsequently transferred to hospitals but ultimately passed away on Thursday.

KoT roasts NTV for deleting Amina Abdi’s ‘half baked’ apology

Amina Abdi has been having it rough for the the past few days thanks to Miss Mandi who was exposed for being a bully by a former colleague. And just like that, Amina Abdi name took second position as the second meanest female media personality in Kenya.

Actually a former colleague even mentioned that after her weight loss (after years of struggling with baby fat) the new skinny Amina started acting spoilt i.e couldn’t share elevators with her common ‘colleagues’ at Capital FM.

If there is anyone who I’ve ever given the kind of reception they didn’t expect, I apologise but am not toxic.

My grandmother meant the world to us. She always had the funniest responses to my random questions about life???????? so blunt & honest weh! My dearest Ako, baba nagaa fud. Waqi Janatul Firdaus asikenu. Afan ken dhurile akdhansa dhubachu imbeku amo akmale sijalada.

I’ve learnt so much from her!! I’ve grown into the woman I am today because I had a strong woman like her guiding me and rooting for me always. I am forever grateful I got to call her my Ako. Our Matriarch. I already miss her dearly.
Losing a parent is painful but losing a grandparent you we’re close to hits very different.

We lost her due to complications with the vaccine. We tried everything to save her but Allah loved her more.

Amina should get back to making music

Did you know that The Trend host Amina Abdi Rabar was once a musician? If you are not aware then you are too young (I’ve been waiting to drop this line on someone).

She released two songs circa 2013 and they both performed well. Actually, one of them is a collabo with the one and only Octopizzo.

The other song, which happens to be my most favorite, is a collaboration with rapper K-Letta dubbed Paint The Town Red.

Apart from the fact that she has a melodious voice – the kind that will make you hit the replay button a couple of times –  I think she really has it in her.

She can actually give the likes of Avril, Mayonde and Vivian a run for their money. I’m willing to bet about this.

The way I see it, she should get back to making music because the local industry needs her but that’s just me.

Come to think of it though, how will she juggle all her hustles and still get time to get into studio and record songs? It would be tough.

Or she could release a song once in a while. I don’t know how she will do it but it needs to happen. Amina, if you are reading this, do the needful.

Big bucks

The two recently burned a lot of cash after organising a super hero themed birthday for Tumi. The bash was a true dream come true for a kid since it had all super heroes.

But John and doesn’t play when it comes to family birthdays. Last year in July, he gifted Amina a sleek BMW X3 worth almost 4 million Kenyans shillings for her birthday.

This time it was all about Tumi though.
