“We were the sacrificial lambs of peanut salaries,” Machachari star blames Kenyans for the show’s drastic fall

After a clean 13-year stint on our screens, the once popular Machachari show was no longer going to air but what netizens don’t know is, they were never told the whole story.

In a blunt revelation made barely hours ago by one of the co-stars, it is obvious that the kids got drifted apart eventually, despite the memories they made on set. A time none of them saw coming, but one that happened either way.

Before penning a remorseful letter that showed how much Kenyans and the media failed these child stars. The very same audience that had been pushing them forward, was nowhere to be seen at their lowest moments.

You all loved us when we were at the top,when we were winning awards and entertaining you all, on your screens. Most of you were eager to see us doing interviews and going for shows. BUT when all that stopped you started hating on these child stars..

Machachari’s fallen stars

Kids who grew into fame knowing that they had a strong support system but soon as age clocked in, they realized they had been sailing in a boat captained by selfish individuals who only wanted to serve their own interests.

The backlash

Children who got criticized, hated, abused and that became the order of the day. Not bearing in mind that not all of them came from well-to-do families and that is why they eventually fell apart.

The only questions you guys have is “mbona mliwacha kututengenezea content?” We all come from different environments, I might be financially stable but that doesn’t mean that all of us are stable.

Machachari’s Govi and Baha

“What happened to the support system?” is the question he poses to Kenyans.

“We were the sacrificial lambs of peanut salaries,” he says.

What netizens failed to understand is that despite them being filmstars, they are still children, who need to make mistakes, learn from them and craft their own paths in life.

All I’m asking from you guys is give us time to grow, to make our mistakes. Shower us with your love and blessings. We are your children. Don’t ask us why we haven’t been to Hollywood yet we get no support from you guys.

Malik Lemuel aka Govi

And instead of the massive backlash, it would only be fair if Kenyans reached out to them to know their well-being instead of always judging and pointing fingers.

Trust you me when I tell you some guys among us have reached their lowest points in life and all they need is your love and support. I wont tag them coz you know them.

Ian Nene aka Almasi on smoking bhang and homosexual behavior

Former Machachari actor Ian Nene popularly known as Almasi caused a stir when photos of him smoking weed and posing like a homosexual man went viral.

Homophobes taunted Nene on social media when he posted photos of him on Instagram posing with a flower on his head like a woman.

Nene, an actor-cum-model, however has no regret over his controversial gay photos. He told Word Is that he wanted to create emotion by expressing himself the way he wants.

He also explained that he doesn’t give a damn about what people think of him because critics will always judge him for whatever reason.

“I feel like with every picture I post on social media, I want to create an emotion and I have my own reasons for it regardless. Me putting on a flower is like it’s like a liberation of art. We are getting to a place where expressions vary and you can use any form of expression that you want as an individual. So that was just me and I worked with really good photographers to see the different aesthetics I can do. People are quick to judge and the fact that I don’t respond, they will say anything. I don’t feel like I am entitled to talk about my personal life with anyone, so whatever people say, I just allow it. Because at the end of the day, they will judge me regardless. Even if I correct them and tell them who I am, it’s not going to change anything. People I work with know who I am. I don’t care what the rest say,” Ian Nene said.

On smoking weed, Nene explained that the photos were taken during a photo shoot and that smoking marijuana wasn’t his lifestyle.

“We were invited to an event to make it have a particular look. People were quick to judge, thinking that’s my lifestyle. That’s not my lifestyle, I do my own things the way I like. What people said or saw doesn’t define my life!”


Almasi finally addresses rumors claiming he is gay!

It is secret that former Machachari actor Almasi also known as Ian nene has changed from the innocent young boy we all watched grow….thanks to the local TV show.

He changed from an innocent boy to a totally different teenage boy who wears a bullring and one that paints his nails – something that left many questioning his sexual orientation.

Most of his fans were pretty much convinced that he was gay but he chose to ignore this until just recently when a fan left a comment under his photo pleading with him to come out since it was ‘clear’ to see that his behavior was not that of a straight man. The fan wrote;

“@ian_nene I love gays. I’ve never had anything against gays. I even know a gay guy vhen I see one and trust me I noticed you one during the machachari days. Just hoping you’re not in the ‘closet’ or In denial. Always be yourself and never let anyone look down on you or judge you for anything. NEVER!, We’re all human everyone has their wrongs so no one should ever tell you nothing.”

Surprisingly, Ian actually responded with a statement that brushed off the rumors claiming he was now ‘playing’ for the same team. He wrote,


“you’re just wrong girl. You noticed wrong girl. My apologies. Truth is you don’t know a gay guy when you see one. And I am not gay LOL. You are the people we need to change. tHIS MINDSET OF THINKING YOU KNOW SOMEONE JUST BY LOOKING AT THEM IS MESSED UP.”

But question still remains, why is he dressing like a woman? Anyway controversy always sells, right?
