DK Kwenye Beat first came onto the public stage when his Saint P produced single ‘Sari Sari’ hit airwaves and reigned supreme on most gospel music charts.
Since then this emcee has frequented entertainment news sites, most recently and sadly thanks to fat shaming haters.
DK Kwenye Beat may have gained weight and while he’s comfortable with this, you bet KOT had a lot to say about that.
The comments kept flooding his timeline but DK seemed to take it all in stride, even re-posting some of the hateful posts on his own social media.
Preceding the release of his single ‘Kijana Wa Kayole’, DK Kwenye Beat appeared to respond to the body shaming comments via an IG post that implied that the comments HAD in fact been affecting him, so mush so, that he’d almost quit social media.
His post read;
The tongue has no bone, but it is strong enough to break a heart. 😔. Social media is a hostile path to walk on, especially when you are not PERFECTLY created or have a body like mine. I won’t quit social media as I had intended, I will instead share my story to inspire another. #comingsoon #KijanaWaKayole.
Well the wait is over as DK Kwenye Beat released that video this weekend, receiving quite the reception with a twitter top trend and a Tukuza Countdown debut at number 7!
A week ago, we talked with Rongai affiliated rap crew 125 who revealed that they were working on releasing a collective soon, hinting at an early release of a featured track which we now see was the remix to ‘Mchezo Ni Kwako‘ by Rosa.
Her fame may have spread after her epic rendition to Sauti Sol’s ‘Nishike’ but Rosa (real name Rosaline Akinyi) has quite the history in music, dating back to when she started out at only 14 years old.
Signed to Flag42, Rosa has since released a slew of hits that featured both her vocal prowess as well as her physical appeal.
Re-worked by Dillie, here’s the newly released music video to that collaboration.
In case you have any doubts about just how big of a genre Grime is, you need only watch how people react to Drake’s KMT featuring UK artist Giggs. We guarantee they will wait till the last few lines (Giggs’ lines) to turn up and it will probably look a little like this.
Giggs’ part of that banger is undoubtedly the most turnt part and possibly for that reason, English DJ, producer, actor and TV presenter Charlie Sloth enlisted the help of this Grime emcee for his latest drop ‘Wake Up.
In the same fashion as Jay Z’s now world popular animated video for ‘Story of OJ’ (Former Record of the Week), the video to Charlie’s ‘Wake Up’ is also animated, featuring cartoon versions of Charlie and Giggs.
Watch this brand new video which by the way happens to be no more than two minute twelve seconds long below.

Brian Nadra a new signee to Decimal records released the song “Leo” last month and now he’s back with it’s visual.
The video features Nadra pursuing a girl in the streets of Nairobi before finally getting together in the end. The video shot by Team Mistari production crew also features perfect shots from Nairobi. The minimal number of actors give prominence to Brian and his splendid tell-tale harmonies.
Produced by Musyoka of Decimal Records, Leo is a bona fide banger, fit for the club and everyday feel-good vibes.
Decimal Records is responsible for propelling the careers of a lot of Kenyan artistes, including Nonini and P-Unit.
The Mariah and James Parker breakup must have been pretty nasty to prompt Mariah Carey to burn her $250,000 wedding dress.
The diva set aflame the actual wedding dress she was going to wear to her wedding with the billionaire in her new “I Don’t” music video. The songstress literally throws the $250,000 custom-designed Valentino gown into the fire.
Apparently, the video was shot at the couple’s former mansion in Calabasas, featuring Mariah in different pairs of sexy lingerie. In the song, Mariah accuses Parker for lying, playing with her mind and making her cry.
Mariah and Parker broke up back in September after a nasty fight they had while vacationing in Greece. She is now dating her backup dancer Bryan Tanaka.
In a Facebook Live session, the singer revealed that she plans to release a series of singles throughout the year and eventually an album. “I’m gonna be doing singles, because it’s more fun for me to just write singles and not focus totally on doing one whole album,” she said. “It seems like a lot more fun to just sit down, write a single, collaborate.”
She also teased a collaboration with her twins, Moroccan and Monroe, as well as a “secret project with a friend.” “I’m not gonna say his name, but you’ll hear about it soon and we’re going to be working on the video soon,” she revealed.
