Actress Jacky Vike is one worried mum following a sickness that has left her 5 year old son hospitalized. Being one who is known to keep her private life off social media, we’re actually surprised she shared the news online.
For the past 4 years, the actress made it her mission to keep son off social media until he is old enough to do it for himself; but in the mean time – she continues to share photos of her son but with emoji’s to hide his face.
Anyway sharing new details of her son health, Jacky Vike through her gram wrote;
The last few days have been the worst in my life. Seeing my son admitted and in pain tore me. As a parent, my biggest fear was this and wueh! Let’s just God is great. A day at a time.
Maintaining low profile
As seen on the photo above, you can see the young man on a hospital bed but Jacky Vike chose not reveal the reason the boy was admitted.
The unfortunate news however comes weeks after the actress marked her son’s 5th birthday with a moving message where she wrote;
“Yoo guys my Son Mosi just turned 5!! Y’all help me wish him a Happy Birthday and I promise nitamsomea zote one by one????. We thank God for how far we’ve come, we are grateful,”
But then again- it’s the back to school season where most kids end up with all sorts of infections and complications. Wishing the young many a quick recovery.
Actress Jacky Vike who is popularly known as Awinja from TV series Papa Shirandula’s is grateful for her late dad.
The lady revealed this is in a new interview with Engage Talk where she opened up about her childhood; and of course her father who she says was a drunkard.
Well, we all have a past and while many insist on keep theirs a secret; Actress Jacky Vike recently opened up about her life in Majengo where she grew up before moving to upcountry.
Vike opens up about her dad
According to the lady, life in Majengo was interesting; but at the same time embarrassing all thanks to her dad. This is apparently because her dad was one known alcoholic who could not go a day without alcohol.
Speaking about him, Jacky Vike described her dad as a loving caring and God fearing man; who also loved to drink.
He loved alcohol but was the most responsible father who treasured education and loved God.
According to Vike, the whole neighborhood in her area was aware about her dad’s bad drinking habit; and often, neighbors call her mum to come rescue or rather carry her drunk husband who often fell into water ditchesMtaro.
He was a drunkard. When a day passed without my mother being called to pick her husband, it was surprising. Sometimes we would be taking supper and hear screams outside, ‘Kujeni mchukue Baba Bony ameanguka kwa Mtaro na atanyongwa na maji. And we would run to his rescue.
But all in all, she went on to add how much the fella brought sunshine in their lives; before his untimely demise that left them fatherless.
Speaking about his death, Vike said that he fell ill one evening and the next morning, he never woke up. Truly sad, but at least we now know where she got her funny character from.
The year 2020 was not only a bad year for most people but a year where people got to learn the hard way. Relationships broke, others lost their jobs and sadly family members due to Covid-19 or other incidents.
As for Kenya, we lost a funny man, mentor and father of comedy – Papa Shirandula. According to reports, the late Papa Shirandula passed on after getting infected with Covid-19; and as you all know, only family and close friends were allowed at his burial.
Actress Awinja aka Jacky Vike who was present at the funeral recently went on to share unknown but shocking details from the funeral. According to Jacky, the Ministry of Health handled Papa Shirandula’s funeral with much disrespect; through their precaution measures. She wrote;
Woah 2020!! Sijui nianzie wapi, but it has been the worst year for me, a painful one, the death of this father/mentor of mine really affected me in ways I cannot explain but we heal with time. Nimeamua sitavuka mwaka na ma uchungu so here I go…
Jacky Vike speaks
According to the actress, the MoH pretended to be strict for the sake of TV. This is because they chose to treat Papa’s friends from Nairobi as-if they had been confirmed to have Covid-19.
This is because everything the visitors touched was fumigated in the name of ‘precautions’ not knowing that they were stigmatizing Papa’s family indirectly. She went on to open up saying;
The way everything was conducted during Papa’s burial still hurts me to date.
I still feel everything was done for TV, because I have attended and seen burial of “COVID 19” cases and it was not the same as Papa’s. The ministry of health (MOH) who should be knowing better on STIGMATIZATION treated us like we all were confirmed cases of Covid-19.
Yes I understand you have to adhere to all measures but some things were unnecessary!
Jacky Vike went on to share the unfortunate experience that left villagers in the late Papa Shirandula’s home scared to death. She wrote;
Some of my colleagues arrived at 4:00am that morning and the MOH officials were there waiting for us. So guys were not allowed to leave the vehicle in the first instance. While in the vehicle the vehicle was fumigated. Our movement was restricted and even going to the toilet was a problem.
Toilets would be fumigated if any of us visited. Kidogo wachote hio waste wa fumigate, mahali mtu wa Nairobi alikua anakanyaga ilikua fumigated each and every step, mtu wa Nairobi alikua anagusa anything unachapwa fumigation utafikiria uko kwa JKL Live umetoa point ya mauwano, this instilled so much fear and sadness to the Villagers and relatives in general
And as you all saw since it was Live on TV no one could get near the gravesite or the Coffin, so hatukuelewa vile hii virus inapita Bodybag yet coffin imeshinda ikichapwa fumigation from mortuary all the way to the homestead.
Just to prove how much this affected Shirandula’s wife; Jacky went on to reveal that most villagers have been treating her as an outcast; following how her late husband’s funeral was handled.
We were on location, but we watched the burial on Viusasa like everyone else. After the burial, Nairobians were literally chased from the homestead! This really broke Mama Papa’s heart she couldn’t understand anything that was going on, it was never the same after we left, the neighbors avoided the family, even buying anything from the shopping Centre they had to send someone from a different family. I cannot write each and every detail here so maybe one day I’ll talk about it on Video.
But now that i have atleast let out, I can say, I feel some how better. Yaliyo ndwele sipite…
In as much as the country lost a hero whose presence will forever be felt, only the late Papa Shirandula’s close-knit family and friends know how it really feels to have lost the thespian.
When I talk of family, I also mean Charles Bukeko’s family in the popular TV drama series Papa Shirandula. In testimonies and touching tributes given soon after his passing on, actors who shared the same stage with the fallen film star or even went through his hands for molding and mentorship, expressed just how deep and painful the wound his death had caused was like.
Jacky Vike popularly known as Awinja lives to mourn a soul so humble yet so resourceful and impactful in the creative industry such that it would not be fair enough to let another month lapse without creating memories of the late, who was also like a father to her.
Breaking the news across her social media platforms, the petite lass shared a series of photos clad in a sparkling white, loose shirt dress that had the late Papa’s photo beautifully imprinted on its front.
Papa Shirandula’s actress Awinja aka Jacky Vike has an amazing sense of style and many continue to admire how fashionable she can get at times!
For a while now the actress has been maintaining a low profile in terms of featuring in new TV shows or commercials! However we believe all is well and now that she has some extra time on her hands; I bet she prefers bonding with her 3 year old son!
Away from her busy schedule, it appears that the mother of one recently decided to take a vacation; and luckily for us, we managed to get never seen before photos of the actress rocking a bikini!
Looking at the photos, we can all agree that natural beauty will forever remain attractive to the eyes! Awinja not only has perfect chocolate skin which blended quite well with her black bikini; but also the perfect figure that will leave many women jealous!
From the photos below it’s hard to tell whether this same body hosted a growing human 3 years ago! The actress has no loose stomach like most women who have a child or children before.
Jacky Vike popularly known as Awinja has decided to quit her job. She announced her decision promising her fans that she will be back on air at a later date.
Awinja was a radio presenter at Qwetu Radio until Tuesday June 5th 2018. The mother of one said she quit her job to attend to other things.
” ?To all my Radio Fans, iam sorry to say that May was my last month with @qweturadio, It was one of the hardest decision to make but unfortunately I have to leave to go attend to other things, but I promise once iam through you will definitely hear me back on air,” Awinja announced.
Awinja earnestly thanked Vincent Ateya for giving her the radio job. She also expressed gratitude to the entire Qwetu Radio staff and fans.
“I want to take this opportunity to thank one Man Vincent Ateya @vincentateya for believing in me and giving me a chance on Radio, it was my first time and I Loved it! And also all the #QwetuRadio staff thank you all for the team work I have learnt a lot! Also the #QwetuRadio Fans, thank you for being a family, I will miss the interactions we had on social media and the amaizing phone calls you made, Qweturadio is and will always be family to me, God Bless you all I will miss you ❤❤,” wrote Awinja.
Jacky Vike aka Papa Shirandula’s Awinja has risen from the bottom to the top. This is due to her acting talent that has seen her win many fans over the years.
Despite her successful career, Jacky Vike also works as a radio presenter to ensure she never gets broke. Well, being a woman the lady must always ensure to have a plan B just incase things don’t work out in her career.
In a new post shared by the lady, Awinja schools men on the importance of saving, dining with men with visions among other things that will help them avoid borrowing money or being laughed at by their age mates. She wrote saying;
1. Leave Naked Women Alone
“Yes, those women who dress like they are in the process of undressing but they have not finished. Leave them alone. Most of them are up to no good and will only cost you a whole fortune in one weekend. Instead, get yourself a real woman:-There is strength in a real woman.. Not these tu machicks without brains (brainless women). Get a woman who will not only support your vision but will also push you to achieve more. A woman who will inspire you to work hard and not a woman who just makes you hard. He who finds a real woman finds a good thing and obtains favour and power to create wealth”.
2. Stop Taking Cheap Food
“I have no problem with you having your tea or food over the social interaction and networking. However, when you drink cheap tea or drink in cheap places, you hang out with cheap people who have cheap ideas and a cheap future. Big business opportunities are found in places where the drinks and food are expensive. In fact, in places where they sell cheap tea, the only people you will find there are people who will be asking you for money. They even clap when you come knowing ‘big buyer’ has come… Lol”.
3. Stop being Lazy
“Man ooh Man, why art thou Lazy?” You are too lazy for your own good. You sleep the whole day and blame the government for your poverty. “A little Sleep, a little slumber, poverty shall overtake you like a political cadre in overalls”. A lot of men are just lazy when it comes to making money. They have enough energy to give a woman five big Os, but have no energy to start one organization, hmmm that’s why it is so easy for men to manufacture children than it is to make even pegs for putting children’s clothes on the line..”
4. Know Productive Things
“If you keep too much junk in your head, you get a junk life. I know a lot of men who are so sharp when you are talking about girls, about soccer and about street politics, Who is rich and who is not, who has a good house but you can’t bring a topic about investment, innovation and business. They start looking at their phone, busy on social media doing nonsense and busy informing other idlers about his whereabouts, yawning or saying bye. Useless things, videos and memes go viral fast than constructive things. A man must know how to do at least one productive thing (have one skill) even without having gone to school/college.”
Speaking during a recent interview with Ebru TV’s Let’s Talk show Awinja aka Jacky Vike explained why she was keeping her baby on the low. According to Awinja her son is quite too young to face the wrath of bitter online users. She said;
“I just feel like he is very young (to be exposed to social media) especially with the trolling and everything else,”
Is Awinja following Brenda Wairimu’s footsteps?
So far it seems that Brenda Wairimu is the only celebrity who has managed to hide her daughter’s identity. Only close friends and relatives have had the chance to see her face and this is because Brenda Wairimu respects her daughter’s privacy. In an interview she once said;
“We are a very young family and we do not want to subject our family to scrutiny …I’m very protective of things that I hold dear. My baby has not been on social media, you can see the back of her head, you can see her feet but not really her face.”
Actress Awinja also known as Jacky Vike is proving that motherhood is not as hard many thought. 5 months after giving birth, the lady is back to partying like never before something that is rising eyebrows.
The actress who enjoys to keep her private life off social media this past weekend graced the Koroga Festival ready to party with her friends. Dressed in a white crop-top and mum jeans no one could tell that Awinja recently welcomed her first child judging from the flat tummy.
Not quite sure how she manages to step out to party with her son barely 1 year, seems that Awinja has the best nanny to watch her baby. Jacky Vike is also proving that becoming a mother does not mean one has to give up the fun stuff since life moves on – but now with responsibilities.
A few months after welcoming her son, Awinja couldn’t help but share video clips having fun with her friends. The lady also appeared at IstandwithJahmby concert to help raise money for the media personality who is a dear friend to many.
Anyway, so far she has not complained about the hardships of motherhood meaning that she is indeed having an easy time.
Papa Shirandula’s Awinja left many heart broken after getting pregnant with her first child – a clear indication that she was now seeing someone serious.
The team mafisi who had been eyeing her were left stranded as the lady had already made a decision of being someone’s wife, something that she later confirmed after a brief interview with popular news outlet where she confessed that she wedded her baby daddy in a traditional wedding but the two still have plans of holding a white wedding in the future.
Awinja is however one of the celebrities who has mastered the art of keeping her private life on the low but thanks to her social media pages we often get to learn one or two things about her and the man she is seeing.
About a week ago, Awinja aka Jacky Vike for the first time shared a stunning photo of her husband to celebrate him as he turned a year older. She went on to caption the photo saying;
Happy birthday boo???to many more
This being the first time we are seeing her get lovey Dovey on her social media pages…we can’t help but assume that she is definitely happy and contented!
Papa shirandula’s actress Jacky Vike popularly known as Awinja just became one of the top celebrity weight loss winners of 2017. Surprisingly the small weight she gained while pregnant seems to have disappeared into thin air and we are yet to find out what method she used.
Could it be a simple diet that helped Awinja shed her post-baby weight or was it just natural? Well, this a question many wish to know the answer but at the mean time Awinja has been sharing her pride in her weight loss success by flaunting her stunning figure on Instagram and getting kudos from her fans.
She now joins the list of celebrity mum’s who have managed to regain their previous bodies after giving birth to her son who we are also yet to see in the near future. However, I must admit that looking at her, no one is able to tell that she gave birth less than 5 months ago.
Anyway, below are a few photos from her post baby shoot where she put her sleek physique on display.
Actress Jacky Vike who is popularly known as Awinja from Papa Shirandula is finally back on her social media pages after taking a break for almost 3 months.
The lass went missing in action after welcoming her 1st born baby with the love of her life. From what we know is that she had taken some time off to bond with her child but today being her birthday, she could not help but share a photo with him.
However, just like most celebrities in the country..Awinja did not unveil her baby’s face but looking at the photo she shared it is clear to see that she has since lost the baby fat she gained after her pregnancy.
Awinja captioned the photo saying;
Wohoo!! It’s my #birthday and this calls for a celebration because I get to celebrate it with my greatest gift ever! My son who also turned 3 months old?, I thank God. #Septemberbabies
Everybody thought Jacky Vike aka Awinja was still pregnant but it turns out that the Citizen TV actress delivered several weeks ago.
Jacky Vike has been making waves with her pregnancy pictures, the Papa Shirandula actress slayed in a series of photos taken while she was flaunting her baby bump.
Awinja continued posting photos of her baby bump on social media even as late as few days ago giving netizens the impression that she was still pregnant.
Then came Sunday June 25th when she dropped the bomb; Awinja revealed that she gave birth a baby boy three weeks ago, June 3rd to be precise. She shared a photo of her son as she thanked God for the bundle of joy she received.
“And on the 3rd of June 2017, 6:55am, God Blessed Me with the Greatest Gift in my Life ever! Nothing can Beat the Joy my son has Brought in My Life, and as he turns 3weeks old, I would Love to Thank you all that have Walked with me throughout my pregnancy Journey, My Family, Friends and Fans, Thank you all for your Prayers and Advice, May God Bless you and your Families, its Been an awesome learning experience for me and my Partner and we are Looking forward to More, and I know through God’s Guidance all shall be Well, THANK YOU,” wrote Awinja.
Actress Jacky Vike must be one happy mother to be as she prepares to welcome her baby any moment from now. The actress who has built her own brand thanks to her career is a favorite to many and this is why her fans on social media can not get enough of her.
Anyway this past weekend the lass celebrated her baby shower and thanks to the photos shared on her gram, we can tell that she indeed had a blast with her friends who availed themselves for the event.
Though this was a private or rather an invite only event I have managed to get a photo of the things brought by friends for the shower. Awinja was pictured holding what looks like tinny baby blanks while the rest of the gifts are seen in the background.
Also, it is easy to tell the baby’s gender by the color of gifts brought by friends. Well there was no pink but only dark colors and blue which has left me wondering whether Awinja is expecting a baby boy. She has not however revealed her baby’s gender but all we can do for now is wait for the arrival of the baby.
Actress Jacky Vike popularly known as Awinja this past weekend celebrated her baby shower with fellow actresses, friends and family at the Lenana Mount hotel as revealed.
The heavily pregnant actress who is expecting her first child any time from now could not conceal the joy she had for having her friends attend the event that seems to have been an invite only ceremony. She stunned in a turquoise blue free dress while her friends came dressed in yellow outfits.
Among those who availed themselves is radio presenter Shix Kapienga, Neomi Ng’ang’a among other popular faces.
Judging from her theme color it is easy to tell that the lass is expecting a baby girl but one can’t be too sure.
Anyway, together with her boyfriend Jacky Vike has been trying to keep their personal life on the low but being a popular person has however made it a bit hard.
We however wish her all the best as she awaits the birth of her baby. Below are a few photos from the baby shower.
