Being dumped hurts. Unfortunately, most people have to go through this rite of passage at least once in their lives. It’s inevitable in the dating game. Celebrities are no exception. In fact, theirs can be worse because they have to deal with the humiliation and pain in front of the glare and scrutiny of millions of people.
Being dumped can make you start second-guessing yourself, especially if you weren’t given any legit reason. If you don’t evaluate and understand why your relationship ended and change a few things, you can carry the emotional baggage to the next relationship.
Some Kenyan celebrities who have shared their experience of being dumped include;
The Kiss FM presenter revealed she had been dumped by her ex-husband while being interviewed on the Weekend with Betty show in April 2019. Kamene said her ex-husband dumped her through a WhatsApp call and did not even bother to spend money while ending their marriage. She said she believes her ex-husband is the most miserable man in the world after doing what he did.
Singer Akothee revealed that her first love Jared left her for another woman. Jared is the father of Rue Baby, Fancy Makadia and Vesha Shailan. He fell in love with another woman and left Akothee. Akothee said he has always been supportive despite leaving them.
After socialite Vera Sidika split with Singer Otile Brown, she took to social media to inform her fans and followers on the developments. In a YouTube video, Vera explained how Otile Brown had dumped her and said he didn’t love her anymore. Otile emphasized that love cannot be forced. Vera even went to the extent of showing screenshots of their breakup conversations on WhatsApp. The breakup happened 5 days after Vera had featured in Otile’s music video Baby Love.
YouTube content creator Lisa Gaitho made headlines after she encouraged women to wash their men and apply oil to their bodies like babies. She insisted that this was a way to make him see you’re special. However, a few weeks down the line she shared on YouTube that she had had a disagreement with her Nigerian boyfriend and they had separated. She insisted the separation was amicable and that they had both made the choice to separate. Lisa said she had separated with her man to focus on Jesus Christ and celibacy. However, there were reports that the man called it quits.
New movie alert or nah?
A movie poster by the title Escape is doing rounds on social media and has caused a frenzy. The reason? It features three of the greatest criminal masterminds recent in movie/film history. Supposedly directed by ‘Dilichi’ the poster features Wentworth Miller aka Michael Scofield from Prison break, James Spader aka Reddington from The Blacklist and Alvaro Morte aka The Professor from Money Heist.
The film which is supposedly meant to air on streaming service Netflix has fans of the three shows excited over the three criminal geniuses working together. Naturally, the poster elicited reactions from thousands of social media users with many wondering why they have not spotted the seemingly action-filled movie on the platform until the poster’s creator revealed the truth.
Much to the disappointment of many, the poster is not real and is merely wishful thinking by visual artist @TheDilichi on Twitter.

American rapper Megan Thee Stallion sues record label
Megan Thee Stallion, the American rapper behind platinum-selling record ‘Hot girl summer’ is suing her record label to get off her contract.
Megan, real name Megan Ruth Pete, is suing 1501 Certified Entertainment claiming that the record label is preventing her from releasing her music, news she first shared on Instagram. The singer also took to Twitter to share her frustrations on the contract’s terms which highly favoured the label over the artist.
According to the rapper, 1501 would take 60% of Megan’s earnings as well as nearly all of her touring income while expecting her to pay for featured artists and sound mixers and engineers with the remainder. Additionally, her lawsuit claimed the label had made ‘false representations’ about the company that at 20 years, she could not have understood.
The situation attracted mixed reactions with some internet users faulting Megan for not reading the contract properly while others sided with her. Defending herself, the rapper claimed that although she read the contract she only came to understand the implications last year when she got new management.
It’s not that I literally didn’t read it it’s that I didn’t understand some of the the verbiage at the time and now that I do I just wanted it corrected 🤷🏽♀️ https://t.co/OR44kna3cq

Fans rallied behind the rapper and singer with #FreeTheeStallion calling out the record label and anticipating her new music.
Thankfully, Megan got reprieve after a judge granted a temporary order. This allows her to release new music on March 6. The judge’s ruling also reportedly prevents 1501 from threatening Megan on social media.
Other stars who have fallen prey to greedy record labels include Taylor Swift and legendary singer Prince. The latter had to re-record all her hits while Prince took to writing ‘slave’ on his face with eyeliner.
