Anne Kansime is a force to reckon with in the world of comedy.

The Ugandan comedian spoke candidly about her failed marriage.

Speaking to radio Jambo’s Massawe Japanni, Kansiime revealed,

“LIFE HAPPENED. I HAD A PLAN ON HOW I WANTED MY LIFE TO GO. I WANTED TO STUDY, GRADUATE, GET A JOB, FIND A MAN AND EVENTUALLY SETTLE DOWN. I MANAGED TO DO THAT, I GRADUATED, FOUND A JOB AND MET A MAN AND I THOUGHT EVERYTHING WAS IN ORDER.”

Kansime adds that despite everything looking perfect she feels she rushed into marriage.

“I RUSHED INTO THE MARRIAGE. IT WAS ACTUALLY NOT A WHITE WEDDING BUT A TRADITIONAL ONE.”

“WE HAD MARKED THE DATES BUT THEY KEPT BEING PUSHED UNTIL I STARTED QUESTIONING MYSELF.”

Kansime added that contrary to rumours her marriage did not breakup because of infidelity.

“THERE WAS NO INFIDELITY IN MY MARRIAGE ON MY PART. ON HIS PART UNLESS WE CALL HIM TO YOUR STUDIOS SO THAT HE CAN TELL YOU BECAUSE I DO NOT KNOW.”

Asked whether the fact that she is a celebrity caused the friction leading to the split, Kansime replied,

“I WAS IN THE LIMELIGHT BEFORE WE GOT MARRIED SO I DO NOT THINK THAT IS SOMETHING THAT CONTRIBUTED TO OUR BREAK UP. ALSO IT IS A FACT THAT I EARNED MORE MONEY THAN HE DID.”

In conclusion, she said,

“I AM NOT SURE WHETHER THAT MADE HIM INSECURE. YOU CANNOT DIM YOUR LIGHT TO SHINE ANOTHER PERSONS LIGHT.”

Kenya’s Masaai Mara Game reserve is site where multiple award-winning African pop diva Yemi Alade premieres music video for the single SHEKERE, featuring multiple Grammy award-winning music icon Angélique Kidjo.

The SHEKERE music video, directed by Ovie with assistant director Taiye Aliyu, was shot in New York and largely in Kenya at the vast and grand Maasai Mara National Reserve, with the final scene at Sand River, bordering Tanzania.

In the video, Yemi is flanked by dancers, all adorned in traditional jewellery from the Maasai community; this theme has dominated Yemi Alade’s style and artistry and promoted her status as a champion for Africa, among artists of her generation.

The cinematic visual opens up in dramatic sequence from Maasai Mara, with its backdrop being the authentic and unapologetic beauty of the African continent specifically Kenya – a second home to Yemi Alade.

The stunning collaboration is a result of the relationship that the two share, transcending music which led to Angelique Kidjo’s call for Yemi Alade to revamp her classic hit titled “Wombo Lombo”.

SHEKERE tells the story of Yemi joining the local celebrations or party through the sounds of the popular Yoruba percussion instrument, which usually makes an appearance when there is a cause for celebration, singing or dancing.

Yemi emotively sings before progressing into a stellar duet with the iconic Angélique Kidjo who also sings in her native Benin dialect over the groovy DJ Coublon orchestrated instrumentation—”I dey hear the sound of a tambourine o, Talking drums and shekere combination, I see people under the tambourine o, Dancing like sey there’s a celebration”.

“Shekere’’ off the album WOMAN OF STEEL heavily samples elements from the original Kidjo track but blends with the current mainstream Afro-pop/Afrobeats sounds.

SHEKERE is a rich and colourful affair, reminiscent of a Disney live-action remake and once again cements Yemi Alade’s throne as a royal of music videos.

The classic visual joins her elite videography part of which made her the first and only female Afro-pop artiste to have over 100 million views on a single video and over 1 million subscribers on her YouTube channel leading to a total cumulative visual stream of over 400 million views.

The song is sixth single off Yemi Alade’s critically acclaimed fourth studio album WOMAN OF STEEL, following hit singles “Home”, “Give Dem”, “Vibe”, “Shake” and Oh My Gosh”. The album features a host of international stars like Rick Ross, Angélique Kidjo, Lemar , Dadju , Duncan Mighty and Nollywood superstar Funke Akindele.

City Lawyer Steve Ogolla Conned KES 500,000 by Facebook Lover

Lawyer Steve Ogolla

A vocal city lawyer is counting massive losses after a woman he met on Facebook allegedly fleeced him of KSh 500,000. Steve Ogolla narrated how he was in a fake online relationship with a woman only identified as Dorcas Sarkozy.

In a disturbing Facebook confession, the lawyer alleged he even went to an extent of planning a wedding with a woman he had never seen. He claimed he sent his baby love money to cater for their wedding expenses but noticed later he had made a terrible decision.

At first, the high flying lawyer tried to report the issue but after being frustrated and having his intimate chats leaked, he gave up the fight.

“All I know is I was in a fake relationship with this lady and she conned me in excess of KSh 500K,” Steve lamented. The pressure of the whole confusion brought Steve to his knees and he even contemplated suicide.

“I reported the issue to authorities but she came back and blackmailed me by sharing private love Whatsapp chats with her third part parties,” the netizen wrote.

The hopeless romantic hoped fellow social media users would help expose the woman and bring her to justice. Most people failed to understand how someone so learned ended up being duped in the most callous and effortless manner.

The last time Dorcas made headlines, she was quoted accusing journalist Enock Sikolia of cheating on his wife.
