Has Mr Eazy’s Account Been Hacked?

Africa sensation Oluwatosin Oluwole Ajibade better known as Mr Eazi has only been in the country for a day and already has the internet thinking his account has been hacked.







The Leg Over singer came through for the drive show and you know how crazy Mike Sheila and Kerry get. Well, looks like the trio recruited Mr Eazi today as they played D Cups and let’s just say Eazi was not ready.







The rules of D Cups are pretty simple: you either answer truthfully or sip the nasty concoction, our guest was not about to drink and God forbid probably have to miss his show tomorrow because of a running stomach, or even worse…

Eazi was dared to tweet “I love the smell of Davido’s fart” and to tag him or drink the ugly stuff. I know right? 

The Ghanaian based singer who is set to perform at the Ngong Racecourse this weekend, tweeted and the internet dust has not yet settled.









Check out the comments that cracked me up.










































































What The ****?! Episode 2 of #DCups (Watch Here)

It’s the drinking game where you ironically do NOT want to drink!

Homeboyz Radio’s drive time crew Mike Wachira, Sheila Kwamboka and Kerry Martin created a webisode (D Cups) which sees them ask each other ridiculous questions and attempting to answer them in order to avoid whatever seemingly gross concoction they manage to pour into three glasses.

The show (D Cups) which kicked off a week ago saw them feature Jump Off Freshman Barack Jacuzzi and had all four of them answer the most difficult questions like ‘who would you chipo, curve or kill?’, ‘which raper would you let sleep with your sister’ and ‘who’s the worst dressed Kenyan?’

Well they seem to have upped the stakes in this episode of D Cups, giving their concoction of death a make over (serving it in glasses and not the tumblers we saw last) and including even more difficult, incredibly awkward and some vomit-inducing questions.

Featuring #NuNairobi act Timmy Blanco, let see how well you can hold on to whatever you had for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Here’s episode two of that HBR exclusive series. 

Timmy Blanco was recently featured on a Steph Kapella  jam ‘The Man‘ but has enjoyed considerable success on his own singles, most notably ‘We Like To Party’. Listen back to Episodes of the Ignition HBR show that you may have missed out on here

Sheila Kwamboka Reveals Which Co Worker She Would Bang

What do you get when you mix the Ignition Crew, some suspicious looking substance and a special guest? The answer is…. an insane web series called ‘D Cups’.

They only just released the first episode of D Cups featuring Jump Off Freshman Barak Jacuzzi and let’s just say you find out quite a bit. 

Watch all four of them respond to questions like ‘who’d you let fart on your face’ and ‘who’d you let smash your sister’ in the first episode, the game being, either you answer the very awkward, catch 22 question or take a sip of whatever that concoction is.

King Slayer’s Epic Rap Battles : Part One (Audio)

When he isn’t saving the day as a suit and tie lawyer during the day, Mike Wachira will normally be on your radio airwaves every weekday from 4pm to 7pm on the Ignition show alongside his co hosts Kerry Martin and Sheila Kwamboka. Yes. That’s everyday… every weekday…. save for Friday.

You see on Friday, much like how Clark Kent transforms into Superman,

Clark Kent Becoming Superman

or Bruce Wayne into Batman,


Mike Wachira transforms into *drum rolls go here* the incredible King Slayer!!

No of course we don’t have footage of the actual transformation happening but we do have evidence of his lyrical conquests in the form of battles he has had with some of Kenya’s most renown rappers including the recently named Jump Off Freshmen.

We all love a good epic rap battle and while I still don’t know how King Slayer remains yet to be defeated, here are a few of his battles and our favorite bars from them.

King Slayer VS Timmy Blanco

timmy blanco

“Niliskia song ya Steph featuring Blanco Timmy | I must confess hadi wa leo sijui uliimba nini | Unasema ulifeature,… ukweli ni ulifichwa…”


King Slayer VS Barack Jakuzi

Barak Jacuzzi

“…sielewi vitu unasema | Nimekukimbiza sana ndi maana unahema? | Umetuacha tukisinzia na hii ghasia unatimbia | Sasa badilisha jina, tukuite minus one | Ama tukuite Baba zero, tukuache minus none”



King Slayer VS Khaligraph Jones


Just about every line was epic so here’s part one and two.


The first season of Ignition HBR’s Epic Rap Battle ends this Friday with the most epic finale yet which might feature Nyashinski, Octopizzo, Petra or Xtatic something YOU can vote for here.







We Found Out SO MUCH More About Jidenna From THIS Ignition Interview (Pics)

An album and a slew of hits to his name, Nigerian born and American super star Jidenna stepped into HBR’s drive time show ‘The Ignition’ ( #IgnitionHBR ) for a rib cracking yet genuinely informative interview.

The star who is on Kenyan soil for a staging at the FOMO party spoke about his rise to fame, his music, his undeniable (and proudly self praised) sense of impeccable style and (yes also) Uganda, South African women and about just how crazy life in the limelight can be.

We’d have very easily written all of it down for you (and we will) but we know the reason most of you (yes you ladies!) are here is to ogle at photos of him so, in a nutshell, here’s how the fifteen minute interview with Sheila Kwamboka, Mike Wachira and Kerry Martin went by, complete with pics and videos.

First his grand entrance which very fittingly was to his own song. (Well played Mr. Producer)

Then they got the formal questions out of the way… i.e. Yes he is excited to be in Kenya and no it won’t be the last time, he will be back on an all-Africa tour.

He let us in on the fact that he actually started out as a rapper and only decided to sing for a career later on. 


That was him refusing to take on Mike Wachira in a spontaneous rap battle.

Screen Shot 2017-06-29 at 19.44.54

He DID agree to a #ClassicManChallenge though…shout out to Mike Wachira for co-ordinating the suit color. Wonder if they planned it. Hmm…

Screen Shot 2017-06-29 at 20.51.45

Jidenna did his homework on Kenyan music and mentioned having liked Sauti Sol, Victoria Kimani and Blinky Bill so far. #PlayKe


Didn’t mind Kerry Martin sneaking in a selfie mid interview and went on to detail the one time a fan threw a thong at him. *Side note* He surprisingly caught it, swung it around and threw it back at the crowd. Wonder if this will give his Kenyan fans any crazy ideas #FOMOPartyKe.

This ‘Bambi’ star spoke on fashion as well and about how he wears suits as homage to his late father who was a vintage king himself. Oh and yeah, here’s the colored vintage blouse that caught his attention.

Contrary to popular belief, it turns out he DOES dress down from time to time and is actually able to be incognito to prying eyes by toning down his fashion sense to a pair of jeans, a T Shirt and a snapback. Yeah right. Like we’d miss this pretty face anywhere.

Wasn’t ready for Sheila’s err… social media announcement. Lol #NoLongerSingle #JidennasBae #OrNot #HeWasntReady 

Also, fun fact: Jidenna’s SMART in all ways. This ‘Little Bit More’ emcee studied at Stanford University and turned down Harvard University for it.

 well damn

“The best music at Ultra is here! The world famous @realblackcoffee bringing the Africa vibrations live!”

Diddy and Black Coffee

Yeah the pair met back in 2014 where Black Coffee refereed to Diddy as a ‘mentor’ of his so looks like their friendship continues to grow.

Black Coffee is clearly a go-to my the music industry big wigs being chosen as one of the select artists whose jams Drake used to kick off his debut Beats Radio show.

Well done!
