Ed Sheeran Confirms Right Elbow and Left Wrist Broken in Bike Accident




There’s no denying that Ed Sheeran is a super talented musician, but playing guitar with a cast covering his arm may be an issue even for him.

The 26-year-old singer shared a concerning photo on Instagram featuring his right arm in a cast and a sling on his left on a Monday morning. The Sun reports Sheeran was riding his bike in London when he was hit by a car, although that remains unconfirmed at this time.
“I’ve had a bit of a bicycle accident and I’m currently waiting on some medical advice, which may affect some of my upcoming shows,” he captioned the post. “Please stay tuned for further news. Ed x”

He updated fans Tuesday evening, confirming he suffered not one, but two breaks.
“A visit to my doctors confirmed fractures in my right wrist and left elbow that will leave me unable to perform live concerts for the immediate future,” Sheeran dictated to a friend. “Sadly, this means that the following shows will not be able to go ahead as planned: Taipei, Osaka, Seoul, Tokyo and Hong Kong. I’m waiting to see how the healing progresses before we have to decide on shows beyond that. Please stay tuned for more details. PS – Ed isn’t typing this as he has both arms casted/bandaged.”

'I Know What You Did Last Summer' Turns 20: Ryan Phillippe Reveals What You Didn't See On Screen


 Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe, and Freddie Prinze Jr. — in the crosshairs of a yellow-slicker wearing, fishhook-wielding revenge seeker.
Prepare to feel old, children of the ’90s. The 1997 horror hit I Know What You Did Last Summer celebrates its 20th birthday Oct. 17. That’s one year shy of legal drinking age, but the movie could get behind the wheel of a car. That may not be such a great idea, though, because the film’s horror hijinks are set in motion by an automobile accident, one that claims the life of an ordinary pedestrian and putting his teenage killers — played by era-defining stars

As Phillippe told Yahoo Entertainment during a Facebook Live talk earlier this year, there were some off-camera driving errors committed during production as well — though thankfully with less deadly consequences. “One night Sarah Michelle and I decided to take my rental car on the beach,” the actor recalls. “We ended up getting stuck in a sand dune and having to call a tow truck in the middle of the night — all in fear of the producers finding out and we’d be fired!” (Watch the clip from our interview above.)

Sand-dune traps aside, Phillippe describes the I Know What You Did Last Summer set as a dream environment for a young actor. “I just remember us four being so excited we were making a studio movie. That was my dream as a 13-year-old — to see myself on the big screen.” Released one year after the original Scream reinvigorated the horror genre in America, audiences were primed to, well, scream along with the absurdly attractive cast. In real life, Gellar and Prinze — who plays Hewitt’s boyfriend in the film — later fell in love and married, but Phillippe doesn’t recall any inkling of that romance starting on set. “There wasn’t really a sense of that then, but I think it’s really cool and sweet that they ended up together.”

Twitter Bigwig Caught Emptying his balls At House Party


A local Twitter bigwig and blogger who is a well-known skirt chaser was recently caught pants down, about to empty his balls.
The tall and dark blogger for hire was invited to a party in Muthiga area with one of his female friends who has been eyeing him for quite a while last week.
Just like any other fisi, the lad did not turn down the offer, and he arrived at the venue, parked his car and went ahead to wine and dine with revellers.
But as everyone was enjoying the revelry, the loud-mouthed blogger was busy salivating over his friend's girlfriend and within no time, he had already taken her number and they went to her house to quench their thirst.
Before the boy child could even start pumping, his friend who invited him to the party walked in on them. She had a melt down that attracted a lot of attention.


Photos: Sharon Mundia’s Grown Baby Leaked


Photos of Sharon Mundia’s all grown son have found their way onto the internet thanks to Homeboyz FM presenter Patricia Kihoro.
The fashion blogger, who is popularly known as This Is Ess, gave birth on June 6 this year but she has never shown her son’s face – save for one photo.
The only photo that’s available on the interwebs shows Sharon’s husband who goes by the Lonina Letaipan resting his head against his son’s with both of their eyes shut.

We now have Kihoro to thank after she posted a photo of the couple’s 3-month old son on her Instagram page.
Although she didn’t show the little boy’s face in the said photo, I’m sure many of her fans could not help but marvel over how much he has grown over the past few months.

Username Investment Issues Over 700 Titles To New Land Owners


Real Estate company, Username Investment Limited, is encouraging Kenyan youth to safeguard their future by investing in property.
As part of its growth strategy, the company is keen to tap into the youth market by offering products at affordable prices.
“We are aware of the challenges that still remain, such as access to finance by many potential homeowners, especially low-income groups. One of our aspirations is to ensure that over the next five years, we settle as many youth as possible into home ownership,” said Username Investment CEO, Reuben Kimani.
Speaking during title issuance ceremony held at the Haven-Konza in Kajiado County, Kimani noted the company’s commitment to ensuring that buyers get value for their money.
The company, which today issued about 700 titles to land owners of its various projects says the company is committed to providing Strategic, quality and affordable products and services that create value for all investors.
“This being the second title issuance ceremony this year proves that Username Investment delivers on our promises, built on our foundation of trustworthiness at a time when the property market is ridden with fraud unscrupulous businessmen “he said.
Statistics from the Ministry of Land indicate that there have been about 7,052 cases of property fraud, which has been made worse by unscrupulous businessmen colluding with professionals mandated to ensure no fraud.
The Ministry further highlighted that the scams could be costing the economy Kshs60 billion annually. This is the estimated cash that the government loses in land rates, court cases and lost investment opportunities when disputed land lies idle.
The CEO further encouraged Kenyans to purchase land through reputable property ownership companies.
Kenyans have to also grapple with the rising cost of land mostly caused by speculation, which is making it impossible for many to own property and eventually homes “At Username Investment, we pride ourselves in making land affordable and therefore accessible for Kenyans from all walks of life. We are currently offering our customers a choice of a variety of parcels of land from as low as Kshs179, 000 for an eighth of an acre.” said the CEO.
He also said that the company was committed to providing value-added land, which includes amenities such as borehole, perimeter fence and internal access roads.   
Username Investment says it will continue to invest in parcels of land that are affordable, strategic, of value to its clients and play its role in restoring confidence in the process of land ownership in the country.
“By creating secure access to land, Username Investment is playing its role towards Vison 2030’s goals to ensure affordable housing for all Kenyans by 2030. Username Investment is doing its part in ensuring that Kenyans have a chance to build sustainable communities through developments in agriculture, infrastructure and the promotion of equal rights of women, minorities and vulnerable groups,” said Kimani.

Megaloh And Octopizzo Concert At The Goethe Institute Set For 13th October

Under the auspices of the Goethe-Institute, Megaloh and Ghanaian Stallion will be bringing this music to five African cities in October 2017: Kampala (Uganda), Kigali (Rwanda), Harare (Zimbabwe), Nairobi (Kenya) and Kinshasa (Congo).
At a time in which African beats rule the whole pop music world and are breaking down one border after another, it’s all coming full circle for them personally, too. Their tour represents the culmination of a long search for answers as well as a vibrant expression of a newfound Afropean identity. Music that is extremely personal and yet global, in step with the times. With no finger-pointing, no compromises, no ifs or buts. But with plenty of larger-than-life swag.

At our Nairobi Concert on Friday, the 13th of October, Megaloh will be performing alongside local artist Octopizzo from Kibera, who established himself successfully in the hip hop scene over the past few years, recording three albums and performing with Kenyan as well as international artists, such as Dead Prez (USA), Blak Twang (UK) or Jua Cali (Kenya). 

He has won various hip hop freestyle competitions in Kenya and performed at a variety of venues including WAPI (Words and Pictures), Sprite Challenge, Ghetto Radio Serious Request, Translating Hip Hop (Goethe Institute), International Hip Hop Summit, Grand National Peace Concerts, Global Development of Peaceful Environments, as well as several university, charity, and HIV Awareness concerts.

Locnville : It was such a fluid process. We had been talking to Radio and Weasel for a while about doing a track together, so when we came up with the beat for Done, we just knew it made sense to have them on that track. I have no doubt we’ll be working together again in the future.

Locnville:  Life inspired it, life inspires all of our songs. A lot of people think the song is about a girl or something like that, but it’s a lot broader than that for me. We’re not being too specific, so you can relate the song to your own life whichever way you choose.


Locnville:We just want people to have a good time and dance. I also want people to get the message that it’s okay to be done with certain things and walk away if it’s too much for you. The song is an escape.

Talia Oyando And Grace Msalame Bag Lucrative Deal With Dettol For New Hygiene Campaign

Dettol has partnered with celebrities Talia Oyando and Grace Msalame to create awareness on hygiene during the Global Hand Washing Month. 

The partnership will see the two celebrities engage mothers and their children countrywide on the importance of hand washing. 

Reckitt Benckiser’s East Africa Country Manager, Sachin Varma said, “Talia and Grace are the perfect partners for Dettol as we strive to entrench the hand washing culture across the country.
“At Dettol; we pledge to make lives of millions of people healthier and happier by improving their hygiene habits. We sincerely believe that this campaign will help us make a positive impact on people’s attitude towards their hygiene habits,” she further added.

On her part, Talia Oyando said: “I am excited to be part of this laudable initiative. It will go a long way in encouraging all the young people to adopt and sustain hygiene practices.” Popularly known as Night Nurse, the celebrated female DJ will leverage on her huge online presence to push the campaign. 

On the other hand, Grace Msalame will be working with her celebrated twins to push the brand in family setting. “As a mother, I am the overall guardian of good hygiene habits in the home and thus I believe that this partnership will build hygiene consciousness countrywide”, Miss Msalame explained. 

According to the annual WHO/UNICEF report, one child under the age of five dies from diarrhoea or pneumonia roughly every 20 seconds. That’s 1.4 million children every year. Many of these deaths can be prevented by the simple act of handwashing with soap, especially during the first 28 days after birth. Here in Kenya, diarrhoea is ranked among the top five health challenges alongside HIV, lower respiratory infection, neonatal encephalopathy, and neonatal pre-term birth. 

Considered as the gold standard in germ protection, Dettol has been committed towards spreading awareness around hand hygiene amongst children across the globe for over 80 years.
