Aki wewe filter! Rayvanny trolled over new photos that have left him looking like homeless bum

Rayvanny has given Kenyans another reason to talk about him and trust me; fans are talking on social media thanks to his new photos taken during his arrival at JKIA earlier this morning.

Okay wait…the only reason Kenyans are discussing this fine young man is not because of his new found love; or his superhot baby mama but because of his looks minus the filter Wasafi photographers often use on him.

Fine Rayvanny

From the photos shared online, I can promise you that either the photographer has a personal issue with Vanny boy; or Rayvanny is diva who has adopted the art of using filters on all his photos hence the trolls on social media.

Photo credits

Stress, overweight issues or drugs?

Well, I am not one to judge but looking at the photo shared by Nairobi it’s evident that ‘the Rayvanny’ on the photo above looks like leo budget one.

Wait, or could it be that WCB sent his look alike to perform at Governor Alfred Mutua’s birthday this week not really; but hey – something about Vanny boy is just off and since it’s not love giving him issues (now that he has a new girlfriend) we can’t help but wonder what could be the issue.

Anyway below are few comments from his Kenyan fans who can’t help but troll the WCB artist.

Dogo Aslay could soon dethrone Diamond as Tanzania’s biggest music star

Isihaka Nassoro, alias Dogo Aslay is one of the Yamoto members whose star has continued to shine even after the band broke up. The other of course is Mbosso who is under the wings of Diamond Platunumz.

Dogo Aslay

However, it does not really come as a surprise that Aslay is still excelling in music. Before Yamoto was formed in 2013, the 24-year-old singer already had a number one single dubbed Naenda Kusema. The song was released in 2011.

After the band broke up, Aslay was rumoured to be joining Wasafi Records but that didn’t materialize. However, that didn’t affect his career as a solo artist as it picked up almost immediately.

He has several songs to his name including; Hautegeki, Mario, Anankomoa, Kwa Raha, Tatoa, Hauna, Pusha, Baby, Likizo, Nibebe, Usitie Doa, Angekuona, Subalkheri Mpenzi and Natamba.

However, my all time favourite is Muhudumu. This song always play in my head when I am at a club. One day I’ll gather the courage to tell the waiter, “Muhudumu ongeza glass” in Aslay’s voice. I digress.

A few days ago, Aslay dropped yet another single dubbed Nyang’anyang’a and, as expected, the song is performing well on the charts.

I love the song. Everything was executed well. The beat is very catchy, the visual is also good. What else do you expect when Justin Campos is the video director? Nothing but class!

At this point, I’d dare say that Dogo Aslay could soon dethrone Diamond Platunumz as Tanzania’s best singer.

Watch Nyang’anyang’a below and tell us what you think.

Diamond and managers show up at BASATA office after being summoned over Rich Mavoko’s contract with WCB

Tanzanian government, through Baraza la Sanaa Tanzania (BASATA), will try and settle the ugly situation between singer Diamond Platnumz and one of his former employees, Rich Mavoke who broke free from Wasafi Records.

Mavoko managed to break free from his contract with Wasafi records after winning a case against WCB he had submitted before Tanzania’s music and arts regulation body (BASATA). Before then, he had accused Diamond of favoring other artists like Harmonize and ignoring him.

Cool down

This heightened the tension between Wasafi Records artists and Mavoko to appoint where the government has now become worried. BASATA has come out to share that it will intervene the situation and try to calm the two parties.

“We have spoken to Wasafi and the label have no issue with Rich Mavoko. The organization will table a meeting between the two because there seems to be no real conflict between the two,” said the CEO Godfrey Mngereza on Tuesday, August 14.

“Nawashukuru sana. Sina maneno mengi sana lakini Mwenyezi Mungu ndio atawalipa. Tunawashukuru sana, tunawapenda sana muendelee kutusupport sio leo tu ata siku nyingine pia,” he said.

Rich Mavoko dumps Diamond Platnumz’ Wasafi Records

After a rather awkward relationship between Diamond Platnumz and his record label Wasafi Records, singer Rich Mavoko seems to have called it quits.

The singer, who was signed at the record label and hoped to increase his reach through out Africa, ended up releasing only three song under the label while other members kept on churning hits after hits.

Missing info

A quick look at Instagram accounts of all Wasafi signees such as Harmonize and Rayvanny, you’ll see their profile still has the tag identifying them as Daimond signees unlike Mavoko’s.

He has not released an official statement yet and neither has Diamond.

Harmonize has confessed that it’s hard for him to maintain a competitive edge over other artists signed to WCB Wasafi Records.

Pure madness: Fan gets permanent tattoo of Wasafi Records artist’s name on her tiny waist

There is no doubt that Diamond Platnumz has been recruiting the best artists for his record label. So far he works with Harmonize, Rayvanny, Rich Mavoko, Queen Darleen and the newest member Lava Lava.

The new singer has so far released two projects that have left most Bongo lovers craving for more. His first hit song ‘Bora Tuachane’ has already hit over 1 million views in a span of one month – something that many artists are yet to accomplish.

Away from that, Lava Lava seems to be driving many women crazy especially with his fine looks and sultry voice that leaves you playing his music over and over again. One lady has proven her loyalty to the singer after she permanently got his name stamped onto her backside of her waist.

Crazy as it seems Lava Lava shared the photo on his Instagram page creating room for the internet to make fun of this tattoo while others wondered what her future husband will say after she gets married. Anyway checkout the photo below;


After dumping her Wasafi Records boyfriend over confirmed infidelity, Wolper finds new love!

Harmonize and Wolper’s break up came at a time when fans were not expecting anything of that sort to happen. What we know is that the two had been having issues at the beginning of the year but never did we think that the singer had been having an affair with a Caucasian woman who is now expecting his child.


However, Wolper who is an actress and a businesswoman chose to stay away from the drama until just recently when she posted a message hinting that she is now at peace as she has found someone who has helped get over her pain. She wrote to say,

Mapenzi ni nini kwani pamoja na yote lkn mtu unarudi pale pale haya mambo ayajawah kumuacha m2 salama basi natamani ata kupost ata kifua. Nashindwa naogopa why why?

Wolper will however not be sharing her boyfriend’s photo anytime soon as she now wants to maintain a low profile life.


After dumping his girlfriend for a ‘Mzungu’ beau singer parades his jewelry worth millions online

By now it is evident that Wasafi Records artists are paid quite well. If they are not showing off their cars, mansions or designer outfits they are definitely parading their jewelry on social media.

Well, Harmonize who is termed as Diamond Platnumz favorite artist this past weekend went ham on his Instagram followers after sharing photos and videos showing off his expensive jewelry that is said to have cost him some hefty amount.

From the photos it is easy to see that most of chains and rings have been accessorized using Diamonds and judging from how the Wasafi family moves…these synthetic diamonds might be of high quality.

Anyway below are some of the photos he shared;

Harmonize Parades his jewelry

Away from that, word has it that his girlfriend is expecting a baby boy who will soon be here. However fans on the other hand have been calling her out for being a ‘wanna be’ Kim Kardashian from how she pouts her lips.


Is Wasafi Records First Lady getting suicidal? This is the controversial photo she shared!

Many might not know that Queen Darleen is the First Lady to Diamond Platnumz recording label but at least now you know! She is the only female signed under Wasafi Records and this is because she has been friends with the CEO for a very long time and is now considered as his sister.

Anyway having released a good hit song ‘kijuso’ featuring Rayvanny the lady has chosen to keep a low profile while the male Wasafi artists continue to drop new projects. So what is she really doing at the Wasafi family?

Away from that, the queen Darleen has left many wondering whether she is now battling with suicidal thoughts after sharing a photo holding a gun and judging from her caption that read to say “Dunia isimame nishuke!” that clearly shows she is tired of living.

Not quite sure whether the gun is real or another plastic toy gun but the lady has left her fans making noise on social media. Check out the photo below;

The new kid on the Wasafi Records block giving Harmonize and Rayvanny a run for their money, his voice is priceless!

Wasafi Records owned by Diamond Platnumz first signed Harmonize who dropped Ayiola and we all liked it. Then came Rayvanny who confirmed that the baba Tee was determined to run the music industry by using singers with amazing vocals. He also went ahead to sign Rich Mavoko who was previously signed under kaka empire and having the three boys on board it was clear that there was no stopping the Wasafi family.

Lava Lava

When we thought Diamond Platnumz was done, the fella has gone ahead to introduce a new face with an amazing voice….and yes he sounds waaaay better Rayvanny. He goes by the name of Lava Lava and boy is this man gifted. His first single which was dropped under wasafi.com has been trending since yesterday and so far even Diamond Platnumz has admitted that Lava Lava is one to look out for.

Though his song was written by Rayvanny who is known to write most songs done by the Wasafi family….there is no doubt that Lava Lava is about to take over Tanzania as the new kid on the block. He has a different twist of ‘taarabu-bongo-rob’ type of singing that makes him unique in his own way. Checkout the audio on Diamond Platnumz bio and be the judge.

Who did it better? Alikiba does his own rendition of Wasafi records popular hit ‘Kwetu’

The beef between Diamond Platnumz and Alikiba will not end anytime besides they both enjoy riding on it and from what they post on social media pages, it is clear that they would actually go to any extent to keep this ‘beef’ going.

King Kiba
King Kiba

Besides their drama, we can all agree that they are the talented artistes with bright futures ahead of them. We have seen videos of Diamond Platnumz listening to Alikiba’s songs, so when Kiba finally shared a video singing to Rayvanny’s hit song Kwetu fans couldn’t help but compare who did it best.

Well, Rayvanny aka Vanny boy has amazing vocals and this is not something to debate on but after Kiba’s video…I am starting to believe that if it was a collabo between the these two then Kwetu would have been a big hit.

Kiba’s version sounds amazing especially when he throws in his trademark ‘thingy’ Yo!

Not sure whether you will feel the same way but checkout the video below:
