6 celebrity media couples who parted ways in sad goodbyes

The media industry has housed multiple outstanding personalities over time, some who had to make exits we never saw coming, others whose chemistry lured fans to tune in to this station or that channel only for the end to come too soon.

Be it on TV, be it on radio, Kenyans have had to witness some of the most unpleasant goodbyes among media couples, leaving wounds that might never get healed unless these duos make major comebacks. Let’s start off:

1. Janet Mbugua and Hussein Mohamed

The former Citizen TV’s Monday Special duo split in 2015 while at the Royal Media studios as Janet left for maternity leave but never came back, leaving behind Hussein Mohamed to co-anchor with Jacque Maribe before the two later made their exit as well.

2. Lulu Hassan and Kanze Dena

The tale of Lulu and Kanze is one of best friends who we never ever thought would part until the latter landed a lucrative State House job in 2018 where she has been working since. Meanwhile, Lulu was paired with her beloved, Rashid Abdalla.

3. Kalekye Mumo and Shaffie Weru

Kalekye and Shaffie was one of the most popular and favorite radio duo Kenya has ever heard, with personalities perfectly complementing each other but unfortunately, the Kamba doll had to leave in 2016 as Shaffie paired with Adelle Onyango.

4. Victoria Rubadiri and Larry Madowo

A speculated screen chemistry many hoped would blossom into a love story without an ending, only for Larry to soon after leave NTV for BBC in 2018, where he has since been making major moves.

6. Andrew Kibe and Kamene Goro

The unfortunate story of Kamene and Kibe is one that probably still hurts, a match so perfect but it had to be done in June 2020 after Kibe handed in his resignation, thereafter getting replaced by Jalang’o.

9 Kenyan celebrities who have embraced single motherhood with a big spoon

A number of female personalities in the Kenyan public space, have taken up the role of parenting by themselves for a better part of their lives, some their biological children, others adopted.

Well-known public figures who either got divorced, gave up on marriage life or just had what many would term ‘deadbeat’ baby daddies. That is my list.

Regardless of the spaces they work in, their professions, their choice of industry or even their age. Let’s dive right in.

1. DJ Pierra

The curvy disc jockey realized she was expectant in 2016, soon after partying ways with the father to her daughter who had already started dating someone else. As her daughter recently turned 4, Pierra Makena clarified that she doesn’t regret becoming a single mother.

Larry Madowo and TV sweetheart, Victoria Rubadiri to reunite soon?

Journalists Larry Madowo and Victoria Rubadiri were undeniably one of the most loved TV presenters from back in the day when they both worked at NTV.

They were also the most admired ‘TV couple’ and for some reason fans felt that their chemistry was beyond their work relationship. Fans even went on to call on Larry multiple times; asking him to marry Rubadiri as they were convinced these two would make a good celebrity couple.

However after they both quit NTV, fans could no longer admire what seemed like a perfect relationship in the making. Well, if not for the money and careers they keep chasing from one station to another; I bet fans wouldn’t mind seeing the pair reunite after years of being apart.

¨You healed me with your unconditional love¨ Victoria Rubadiri pens emotional tribute to her teen daughter who made her worthy to be called a mom

Victoria Rubadiri is definitely a force to reckon with in the media industry but her past is what makes her the strong and commanding lady we see, through her adorable daughter, Neema.

Vicky is one media personality we know to live a low-key life.

With her personal life kept personal and very selective on what she lets out to the public.

The TV siren who has left a myriad of gents drooling over her, celebrated Mother´s Day in her own special way.

She reminisces the day her adorable daughter saw the light.

Open letter

Vicky´s story starts heart-deep and seemingly ´sad´ as she recalls:

Dear Neema,

You see this picture? You were a week old, I was 18 and scared out of my wits.

While you were perfection, I was a wreck.

I fought for a long time with embracing the identity of being a mother because I felt I wasn’t ready.

For the Citizen TV journalist, 18 was too young, too scary to be thrown into the life of motherhood.

However, things took a better turn and the healing process kicked off soon as the adorable girl grew older each passing day:

Truth is, you are never going to be ready!

I learned that with time as you grew and became a different human being at every stage.

I grew with you, made my mistakes but pushed forward.

You healed me with your unconditional love.

Like every other mother-teen girl relationship, the bond somehow weakens and the road between the two gets a little rough.

Rubadiri´s case is not any different citing:

Though that admiration in your eyes has turned into occasional side eye ???? now that you are a teenager. ????

However, all that is set to pass and the once young mother attests it all to a few:

We’ve made it this far Dudu and you’ve turned out pretty amazing.

Babu, Mama and Aunty have a lot to do with that.

On this #MothersDayI thank God for you because you truly are a gift from Him.

Just before she calls it a day, the 33 year old pens down her sincere prayers to her all-grown baby:

I pray you thrive in this life, I pray you are a light in your generation, a beacon of hope in this world.

And it all is a moving letter to Vicky´s angel from:

-Love Mommy????


It is quite adorable, unique and sincere of the successful media personality as personalities and fans acknowledge:

That is beautiful! Happy Mothers Day Mama!

Beautiful granddaughter and a wonderful mom!!!!
From a mother’s heart so pure,my story at 21,sadly,I lost my Angel in 2017.
But she gave me the biggest title on the planet,she made me a mom.
To all mothers,here’s to more love and blessings.
Happy Mother’s Day Vickie! ????
What a beautiful tribute to your girl and. whole family ♥️. Xo
This Journey feels too Familiar, Too Releatable, Too Real????..
Happy Mothers Day mama, you are such a Blessing to us All????
Written from the soul. Happy #MothersDay.
Happy mothers day darling❤️❤️❤️
Awwww! Happy Mother’s Day Mama Neema.
Prayers, warm wishes and lots of hugs
Happy Mother’s Day Vikster!!! ????????

Larry Madowo weds Victoria Rubadiri in low-key ceremony (Photos)

BBC Business Editor Larry Madowo quit the bachelors’ club on Sunday after tying the knot with Citizen TV news anchor Victoria Rubadiri.

Larry Madowo and Victoria Rubadiri

The two lovebirds, who have been dating three years, sealed their union in an exclusive wedding ceremony at the Marula Manor in Karen, Nairobi.

According to our source, the wedding had 100 guests, most of whom were family members, close friends and colleagues.

They were required to leave their phones at the main entrance and sign a confidentiality agreement.

This was done to ensure that no photo was leaked to the media.

The newlyweds will fly out to Italy on Wednesday for their pre-honeymoon before proceeding to France where they will spend two weeks.

Larry Madowo and Victoria Rubadiri

News of their nuptials caught many people by surprise since we had all assumed that the Madowo and Rubadiri only had on-screen chemistry.

As it turns out, there’s more than meets the eye! The two have dated for three years or so and managed to keep their relationship under wraps.

We wish them all the best as they begin a new journey as a couple.

To add to that, this a polite reminder that today is April Fool’s Day. If I were you I would not take any of this seriously.

¨Need to have a word with my plastic surgeon,¨ Vicky Rubadiri claps back at ´fan´

Vicky Rubadiri responded to a ´fan´ with a classy comeback after accusing her of getting lip fillers.

¨So @VickyRubadiri decided to do a horrible lip job with injections?? Low self-esteem!¨ Alvin Kibet´s tweet read.

The fan accused her of taking the Kardashian route and getting some lip fillers but Alvin felt that the person did a horrible job.

Therefore, according to the fan, this might have resulted to Rubadiri having low self-esteem.


In most occasions, one would expect any individual linked to such cosmetic procedures, to gush out all manner of words.

This was however not the case.

Citizen TV anchor, Vicky Rubadiri

Victoria Rubadiri instead made a joke out of it.

¨Snap! It looked pretty natural the first couple of days. Need to have a word with my plastic surgeon.¨ the beauty wrote back.

Not just her

This seems to have been the current trend among most of these media personalities.

TV siren, Betty Kyallo recently gave a reply to a fan who thought the lass had put on some more weight that didn´t look all that nice.

¨My Betty now that weight is going overboard. Look at those hands bwana. Love you all the same,¨ the fan expressed.

TV siren, Betty Kyallo

Similarly, Instead of lashing out at the fan who publicly might have pricked the beauty´s ego, she gave an upbeat response.

¨Ni kupendwa mob,¨

That is the reason the mother of one, gave in response.

Still single at 33! Great expectations and reflections for Victoria Rubadiri as she turns 33

I tell you it’s as if all celebrities in Kenya were born in January… Prezzo, Janet Mbugua, Julie Gichuru, MC Jessy, Jeff Koinange, Victoria Rubadiri etc.

Victoria Rubadiri was born on January 28, 1987, she turned 33 on Monday. The Citizen TV anchor said she had a lot of expectations and reflections as she celebrated her 33rd birthday.

“Ah 33…you arrive with great expectations and somber reflections,” Victoria Rubadiri captioned her photo.

Expectations and reflections about what?

Well, Victoria has been single for a very long time. In an interview last year, the single mother of one revealed that men are intimidated by her.

“Like where I’m just doing my own thing and someone comes, says hi, and asks me out on a date? Yeah, that definitely doesn’t happen.  I think the intimidation factor, usually has a lot to do with what people generally think, of those who work in the media, and people’s past interactions with other media personalities,” said Victoria in a past interview.

Shaming & hating may seem fun but consider that no matter how thick someone’s skin might be, being KIND and empathetic costs you nothing. Positive criticism often works better and just as well. Be the better person. You don’t have to shame someone to make a point. Always know that everyone is dealing with something despite the glam. ✌?,” wrote Terryanne Chebet.

Speaking with Victoria Rubadiri on Victoria’s Lounge revealed some of the hardships he has had to face. He said,

“Janet died on April first and on April fifth was our son’s birthday and we decide we are having it anyway.the massive pain is there is a 7 and a 4-year old who will never see their mother again, it breaks you when you see that.”

He is however grateful to have his nanny around as she has ensured to keep his family on their feet as he said,

“my nanny of seven years has just held the house on a system, my house never lacks. its a fully functioning house.”

He went on to add that after deciding to do away with her clothes – but this was the hardest time of his life as he said:

Though it was hard to this there was no other way as the clothes she left behind could not fill the void in his heart. He said,

“I broke down completely and started to realize these clothes are not Janet. I would never have moved those clothes for three years but i started realizing that’s not Janet. I went, closed myself in the spare room, pulled down those bags, started tearing through them and i realized these clothes are not Janet. i sealed them back.”
