Harvey’s View On Africa

Harvey is popular for hosting International shows such as family feud. While speaking on his move to Africa, he noted that he is already in business with the President of Botswana, Eric Mokgweetsi and was planning on engaging President Ruto.

In his remarks, Harvey insisted that Africa has great potential and that is needed to bridge the gap between Africa and the outside world.

He added that without Africa, there would not exist African-Americans.

“I was the first person to ever bring a Television show from America and tape it on the continent of Africa after everybody told me it couldn’t be done. They told me it wasn’t feasible. They told me they don’t have the infrastructure to pull it off. I went over there and proved them wrong because Africa is most capable.”


Vivian Opens Up About Failed Marriage With Her Ex-Hubby Sam West

In a recent interview on Iko Nini, Kenyan musician Vivian shared the inside story of her failed marriage to businessman and content creator Sam West. She candidly expressed her reservations about their whirlwind romance, emphasizing the importance of being on the same page before tying the knot.

Vivian began by acknowledging that she wasn’t prepared for marriage when she first started dating Sam. She felt that there were vital aspects they needed to explore and understand about each other before taking that big step.

“I had told him about it because a friend had hinted to me, but I felt that there were things we needed to still do together and know each other. You need to be on the same page. I felt like there were so many things that we had not discussed…” she said.

Vivian’s story is a reminder that it’s important to take your time and get to know your partner before getting married. It’s also important to be on the same page about your goals and expectations for the marriage. Otherwise, it can be difficult to build a strong and lasting relationship.

If you’re considering marriage, it’s important to have honest conversations with your partner about your values, beliefs, and plans for the future. It’s also important to seek premarital counseling to help you prepare for the challenges and rewards of married life.

Turning Over A New Leaf

The mother of one has now decided to get over it; and to spice things up, she has decided to shave all her hair. She posted her new look via Instagram and captioned;

”I realized that no matter what I did or what I said and how unprepared I was for the changes in my life that it was completely above my power.

So instead of searching for worldly comfort God necessitated that I yearn for Him. It was very strange.
And on those days I get into despair over my past life, my upbringing and other pains I force myself to shift focus.
I am not sure about the future and this message is not for critics or wajuaji. @art_heart__hurt_podcast new episode this Thursday 3pm on YouTube ????????”

Vivian opens up about her relationship with baby daddy for the first time

Singer Vivian is a mother of one adorable baby girl who she conceived before embarking on her musical journey a few years ago. However she ended up becoming a single mum after breaking up with baby daddy – who by the way – she rarely talks about.

Well, this is probably because she already moved on with hubby, Sam West; or just enjoys keeping her private life (mostly past) hidden from her online community. Which is a good move.

Tbt: Vivian with daughter

However speaking recently to Mpasho on a one on one interview, Viviane got to open up about her baby daddy for the first time. Judging from how she painted the man as a loving and responsible dad to their daughter; it’s obvious to see both Vivian and baby daddy are coparenting in peace. Something many ex couples continue to struggle with.

Praises baby daddy

Without sharing his identity, Vivian painted her baby daddy as a man that loves his daughter; and one that supports where he can.

Also read: Vivianne’s Change To Gospel Is Right On Time

Of course for them to coparent, there must be good communication; hence Vivian’s response after she was asked whether they talk, to which she responded by saying;

Vivian’s daughter all grown up

Yes, we talk. We have always been cordial with each other.He is a good father. We don’t talk all the time but we understand that we have a child together.

Child support

Well having him present in his daughter’s life means supports her one way or another: Which Vivian confirmed as she went on to add;

He helps where he can but he loves his daughter and that’s important because it’s important for a girl to have a relationship with her dad.

Having witnessed how kids from this generation traumatized or even with daddy issues; after growing up in the absence of their father’s, Vivian says having her baby daddy in their daughter’s life; is something she will doesn’t regret.

Vivian on the other hand is also set to  release her first 2020 project dubbed Masharti as seen on her Instagram page. Well, with all the that talent, I bet the lady will not let her fans breathe with her upcoming projects that will blow many off their feet!

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.

Amina Abdi Rabar
Amina Abdi Rabar

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.

Listen to Octopizzo’s collabo with Amina dubbed Swag below.

Avril Vs Mayonde Vs Vivian: Which female singer has the sexiest voice?

Let’s be honest, when it comes to musicians (especially female) the sexier the voice the more appealing it is. Don’t you agree?

This article is based on that, I picked three of Kenya’s leading female singers and we want you to decide whose voice you can listen to all day. That’s pretty much it!

Another one! Meet the sassy Kenyan lady accused of being Diamond Platnumz side chick

Word making rounds on social media is that’s Diamaond Platnumz is cheating on his pregnant lady, Tanasha Donna.

This comes after the lady by the name of Vivian aka Vivafabrica shared several behind the scene photos from Inama video shoot.

With this, one Bongo gossip tabloid went on to  expose the lass as Diamond Platnumz Kenyan side chick.


According to the tabloid, Diamond Platnumz apparently hangs out with the lady every time he visits Europe which could only mean that the two are more than friends.

Diamond Platnumz back to his old habits?

Since the lady was not featured in the Inama video; one can’t help but wonder how she got full access at the video shoot.

But judging from how Diamond Platnumz has been linked to multiple women in East Africa it wouldn’t be such a surprise to learn that he is expanding his territory.

Anyway looking at Vivafabrica’s social media pages, it’s evident to see that she resides in Germany with her daughter; but at the same time works as a choreographer meaning her meeting with Dee could have been professional.

Check out her photos below.



Vivian speaks juggling motherhood and her music career that is now hitting the rooftop

¨Cheza Chini¨ female singer, Vivian is a mother of a fast-growing daughter but she is still able to juggle that with her music career which is hitting the roof at the moment.

Vivian who is currently Sam West´s wifey has a daughter from her previous relationship.


One on one with Kiss 100´s Shaffie Weru and Adelle Anyango, the young mother shares:

We were just chilling with the children.

Just cooking, having a bit of wine, exchanging notes, just family time.

Further on, the Kenyan beauty admits that she sadly turned into her mother when it comes to being the ´bad cop´ at home:

I think I am [the bad cop].

I might not have inherited the ´traditional´ way of doing things, but I am really my mother´s daughter 100 percent.

And it scares me a lot.

So I am a bit of a disciplinarian.

I have to be.

Vivian adds that looking at her fast-growing daughter, just makes motherhood memorable citing:

I think just the fact that, seeing how big my daughter has grown over the years.

It just makes me think WoooooW!!!

She´s now 9.

It´s so shocking.

She however takes in the credit for her glamorous look in studio and does not sit back when Shaffie thinks that Sam West is actually a major contributor of her look.

According to the top artist, she does not need a man by her side to come out looking like a Queen.

Tumetoka hiyo kuambiwa ati wanawake, wanaume wanatujenga

Music career

Vivian´s music career might have not thrived as such in the past but her recent comeback has been a major blow in the competitive world of secular music.

For her, 2019 has been a change over as she reveals:

I feel like I am redefining a lot of things, 2019 moving forward.

Because right now, I am more in touch and connected to my career than ever.

I have a really strong voice in terms of making decisions more than I used to have, for the past 5 years.

I think every 5 years, for a music career, it´s like there´s a shift of things a little bit.

However lucrative secular music seems to be, Vivian affirms that this is not the age and time to just spit out lyrics and your feelings without taking note of the kind of content one is expressing.

And now it´s not all about making the music but also the voice that I´m putting out.

Because my voice now is louder than it was even a year ago.

Right now if I say something silly or whatever it is, it ends up on the block.

So I have to be super conscious about things now, it´s my responsibility and I can feel the pressure.

And even for the content, right now if I release music and guys were like, maybe they´re not feeling it, they´d just be like, ah Vivian wacha, unatuenjoy.

The Kenyan well-established songwriter articulates that fans have become more conscious and somehow partake in one´s music career as well as lifestyle.

We´ve now become boys with my fans even on the streets, they confront me in my music.

So I have a lot of shareholders in my career and in my life.

It´s however better than when people don´t care because hiyo ni ngori sana.

Vivian Kenya is the voice behind anthems like ´Chingi Changa´ which is a complete opposite of her new ´Cheza Chini´ jam as well as others like ´Chum Chum´ and ´Attention´.

Vivian forced to publicly slam thirsty powerful govt official begging for her nunu in exchange for favors 

Singer Vivian is back again with yet another statement that has left her fans in shock.

Just days after the singer confessed that she was forced to edit some parts of her new song because of some intimate scenes that her fiance hated, she has now confessed that a senior government official is demanding for her cookie jar.

In a social media post, Vivian claimed that the government official wants to have sex with her in exchange for deals and other favors.

“I have decided to go public about something that is causing me discomfort. Some popular senior govt official has been relentlessly been on my case for the last one week,” she said. 

“I have continuously told him I can’t sleep with him as he demands. He doesn’t seem to stop despite all my attempts to stop him. Let him know this, I don’t sleep with married men. He should respect his wife.”


Female artists have always complained of such cases. According to Viv, sex is a holly thing only for those who are married.

“Second, Sex to me must have a meaning. It’s a gift for married couples only. Thirdly, He is twice my age. Please! Gosh! Wish the wife was able to tame her man. If he doesn’t stop stalking me, I will publicly expose him and tag his wife. Why do some men do this to their wives? What happened to faithfulness?” she said. 


Vivian wa Kucheza Chini-Vivian Musiq at a glance

Vivian Wambui famously known as Vivian Kenya is a Kenyan Musician, song writer and a  celebrated recording artist.

She was born on 15th March and is the third born in the family of four.Vivian was brought up in Pangani Estate in Nairobi.

Being a city girl you’d definitely believe Vivian was brought up as a “cool-kid”-if that’s a thing.


Well, its true.For her Primary school, Vivian went to Marion Group of schools and letter joined Statehouse Girls for her Secondary school education.

She later joined The Kenya School of Professional Studies where she studied  Marketing for her Degree.

Career in music

Vivian’s interest in entertainment began at an early age where she was acting as a lead soloist at school events.

She became an active spoken word artiste and singer after being introduced to it by a friend.

Further she went ahead to pursue her musical interests in her teenage years  by studying music. In my point of view, this is something many of the artists do thankfully.

Her popularity was brought into the fore front years later where she joined Main Switch recording studios for a year. She did her first debut with Jaguar who was her muse then.

This was after the Chum chum hit maker  struggled in  in her pursuit of  getting in to the  the industry.

Lucky enough Vivian Has managed to stay relevant in the  Kenyan Music scene.

She is famed for big hits like Teren teren, Charm that she featured Ugandan Veteran artist Jose Chameleon,Chingi Changa,Talk to me(Boss lady),Addicted featuring Kenyan Comedian MCA tricky,Nilivyo that had the Soulful Madini classic in it  among others.

She went independent with her manager who is now her husband Sam West.

So far they seem to be doing well  both as a couple and professionals. They have their own label called “Moran”.

Vivian wa leo…

Few days ago, there was a  small side show depicted by Vivian when she leaked her whatsapp conversation between her, Naiboi and Savara of Sauti Sol on their latest Jam “Cheza Chini” on her social Media.

The issue about Sam West not liking a scene that was too Intimate to his liking. Details?

Good enough, she managed to get to her fans and from the views on youtube, Vivian is that Kenyan artist you wish not miss in the Industry.


Kenyan musicians have done so many collabos this year and we’re really impressed

Maybe you’ve noticed, maybe you haven’t but Kenyan musicians have dropped so many collabos since the year began. If you are a huge fan of local music, like yours truly, I’m you are also impressed.

For the first time in a long while, there’s something good to say about the local entertainment industry. We’re barely five months into the year and we’ve seen the most unexpected collabos. It’s such an exciting time to be alive.

Artist have not only realized the importance of doing collabos, they have also decided to step out of the comfort zones. On a light note, I’m pretty sure Kenyan musicians agreed that 2019 is the year of working together.

What I love most about this is that our artists are not only working with their fellow Kenyan musicians, they are also crossing borders and working with acts from Tanzania, Nigeria, Ghana and Jamaica.

The likes of rapper Khaligraph Jones have featured on four great collabos since we crossed over into 2019. The songs are; Japo Kidogo, Kiboko (Remix), Megarider (Remix), and Chukua Selfie which was a campaign but still counts.

Papa Jones aslo featured Nigerian rapper Ycee on Gwala which was released in January this year.

If you’ve noticed, Naiboi is also doing a lot of collabos this year. He has two songs with Kristoff, a song with Brown Mauzo. He was featured on Chukua Selfie. His new song with Vivian and Savara dubbed came out a few hours ago.

Arrow Bwoy has also been breaking his back when it comes to music collabos. He has a song with Demarco, another one with Cecile. He has also worked with Gabu and Jovial

Other artists who’ve dropped good collabos this year are; Willy Paul, Timmy Tdat, Nyashinki, Jua Cali, Avril, King Kaka, Mr Seed, The Kansoul, Rankaddah, Rankaddah, Mayonde, Ochunglo Family, just to name a few.

To say the least, I am impressed. I can’t help but imagine how many more great collabos we’ll see before the year ends. I hope this also serves as a wake up call to artists who have been shying away from collabos.

What are some of your favourite local collabos this year? Leave a comment below.

Vivian’s new collabo with Savara and Naiboi dubbed ‘Cheza Chini’ is so disappointing (Video)

I don’t know what’s worse between Vivian’s new collabo with Savara and Naiboi dubbed Cheza Chini or the terrible publicity stunt that she pulled on her fans days before she released the song.

Give me a chance to explain myself before you brand me a hater. You see, I am a huge fan of Vivian just like you. Without a doubt, she’s one of the most gifted female singers in Kenya. Her gift is her golden voice. She has this rare voice that is so sweet to the ears.

Perhaps this explains why she has a huge following. Well, she is also very beautiful. However, I feel like she is more known for her voice. Anyway, this is a story for another day. Isn’t it?


The point is, Vivian is known for her vocal prowess. She also has a loyal legion of fans who are always looking forward to listing to her latest music. I occasionally see her songs on music TV shows which means she’s getting good airplay.

As such, I don’t understand why she had to do a publicity stunt days before releasing her collabo with Naiboi and Savara dubbed Cheza Chini. To make matters worse, the publicity stunt was so terrible.

Also read: Vivian’s hubby, Sam West gets jealous after intimate clip between wifey and Naiboi

On Friday last week, Vivian shared some screenshots of a WhatsApp group chat on her Facebook page and I believe that they were just stage managed just to hype the new song before it was released.

Apparently, Vivian’s husband, Sam West, was unhappy with how Naiboi was holding his partner in the video so much so that he asked them to re-edit the video before releasing it on April 29.

Sam West and Vivian

After all that drama, you would think that the song would be worth writing home about when it was finally released. It’s really not. It’s so lacklustre. Naiboi and Vivian’s parts just seem off. I was so disappointed when I first heard it.

However, Savara really did a good job on the hook. He almost saved this song. The hook, goes like “Cheza za chini usichome picha…kamejipa, cheza za chini usichome picha…kameshika.


Be that as it may, the song has a decent beat. It was produced by the one and only Cedric Njega, alias Rixx, The video, which was directed by Sammy Dee, is also good. The transitioning from one scene to another is also good.

Incase you are wondering, Naiboi and Vivian are still seen getting close in the video. The 2 in 1 hitmaker occasionally holds her around the waist.

Watch Cheza Chini here and tell us what you think.

5 impossible music collabos we’d love to see before 2019 ends

A few days ago, Octopizzo revealed that he was willing to work with nemesis Khaligraph Jones if the song would line his pockets. Although the chances of this happening are close to zero, it got me thinking about other impossible collabos that we’d love to see.

You see, the essence of doing in a collabo is to grow an artist’s fanbase. For instance, Khaligraph’s fans would get to know about Octopizzo or appreciate his music and vice versa if the two artists ever do a collabo.

There’s also the obvious fact that two or more music greats are bound to create something magical if they ever work on a song together.

That being said, here’s our wish list of collabos:

1. Nyashinki and Otile Brown – After listening to Nyashinki and Juma Jux on Incase You Don’t Know, I couldn’t help but imagine what a Nyashinki and Otile Brown collabo would sound like. We are really looking forward to the day when they’ll give us a treat.

Nyashinki and Otile Brown

2. Arrow Bwoy and Vivian – This collabo should have happened a long time ago. I mean why not? Vivian’s smooth vocals would really blend well with Arrow Bwoy’s seductive dancehall sound. Get into studio guys!

Vivian and Arrow Bwoy

3. Sauti Sol and King Kaka – They may not see eye to eye but I’m sure you also get the feeling that a song by these great musicians would be nothing but pure bliss. You remember Sauti Sol’s collabo with Khaligraph dubbed Rewind? Think along those lines and then add King Kaka’s storytelling skills.

Sauti Sol and King Kaka

4. Nadia Mukami and Naiboi – I live for the day these two musicians will release a song together. Thinking about it just gives me goosebumps. If a collabo between Naiboi and Nadia comes to pass, it will be the biggest song in 2019. You want to bet?

Nadia Mukami & Naiboi

5. Masauti and Steph Kapela – Nothing beats a bongo-infused rap song. Absolutely nothing. It’s for this reason that I feel Masauti should do his next collabo with one of Kenya’s best emcees – Steph Kapela. What I love about Steph Kapela is that he is versatile, he could end up singing if they ever do a collabo.

Masauti and Steph Kapela

Vivian sympathies with rapper Cashy over domestic violence: Physical abuse was part of my welcoming party

Singer Vivian is in support of rapper Cashy who recently confessed that her ex-boyfriend Khaligraph Jones was physically and emotionally abusive to her.

Cashy has opened up about her relationship with Khaligraph saying it was marred by cheating, threats and being demeaned. Singer Vivian said she also relates to all this since her first relationship was the same.

“I watched Cashy speak about being abused physically and my heart goes out to her. I’m certain it has not happened to us in the same breath but I too have experienced physical abuse. Physical abuse was part of my welcoming party as a new female artiste from one influential and hurt male figure. I almost gave up pursuing music,” she posted. 


Vivian, who left with one kid from that relationship, warned girls to be very careful next time they are choosing a man.

“Girls be careful what and who you let in your life. Cashy I’m sorry for having to go through physical abuse. I would never want any girl to endure physical and emotional abuse. It’s a form of bondage and as women we must refuse to be victims. It’s enough.
Remind yourself that you are smart, gifted, confident and life is not done with you yet. Instead of retreating, keep soaring; keep evolving; keep growing; keep elevating!The world needs you!” she posted. 


Vivian responds to trolls, vows to walk from town to Karen to prove she’s hardy

Singer Vivian became a laughing stock during the weekend after sharing that she used to walk from Nairobi West to Nyayo to save bus fare which she later used to record her first songs.

The distance between Nairobi West and Nyayo, if there’s any, is actually not more than 500 meters.  Kenyans trolled the singer for her comments in an KTN interview after she shared her humble beginnings.

Vivian appeared in the just-launched KTN program “Behind the music” where she shared her story leaving many in stitches.

“I used to walk from Nairobi West to Nyayo to save fare,” she said.


“Even when I was working, I used to steal some hours to go to the studio.” 


It’s seems she has taken the Vivianchallange serious and now has promised that she will walk from the CBD to Karen. That’s about 20 km.

“Word on the street is that she can’t walk for long distances. Let me prove you otherwise. Who wants to walk with me from Nyayo House to Nairobi West then to @moran_house in Karen?” she said on social media. 

For those who don’t know, Vivian used to be a hawker. A Mali Mali guy. And these guys can walk up to 30kms in a day so she might actually successfully do it. Don’t let the pretty face fool you.

Are you trying to be funny? Singer Vivian trolled for claiming she used to walk around 500 meters to save bus fare

We have heard stories of some of the crazy things entertainers used to do before they became famous. Some used to collect garbage, others used to sleep in clubs while other went for days hungry in pursuit of their dreams.

For singer Vivian, she used to walk just a few meters to see her dream come true.

Bus fare

The singer was recently trolled by Kenyans after sharing she used to walk from Nairobi West to Nyayo, which is barely 500 meters, so as to save.

Vivian appeared in the just-launched KTN program “Behind the music” where she shared her story leaving many in stitches.

“I used to walk from Nairobi West to Nyayo to save fare,” she said.


“Even when I was working, I used to steal some hours to go to the studio.” 

It’s not the first time the singer is talking about her past though this one completely surprised everyone. The singer has always shared how she used to be a hawker before getting her big break.

“Why should I really boast. By then things were so tough on me. I hadn’t started singing. I was a mali mali seller. I sold cups, plates, thermos to make ends meet. The piece of watermelon was my lunch that day. Surely never despise humble beginnings. I look at my life and all I can say is God reigns over our lives. Your current situation is not your future. There is always a brighter day ahead,” she said.
