Kenya's top five biggest entertainers who broke the internet in 2020
Despite 2020 being a special year, in the entertainment world, the party never stopped. Here are five entertainers who kept us engaged throughout the year.
Cheating scandal rocked power couple DJ Mo and Size 8
When the video of Size 8 shouting at her husband DJ Mo aired on TV, DJ Mo was exposed online for cheating on his wife with a lady identified as Margaret. The news went viral immediately.
Size 8 then went on three-days prayer and fasting to save her marriage, saying, “What has been said about my marriage has been said whether it is true or not I don’t know only God knows the whole truth and we cannot reverse what has been said. I’ve been angry and sad handling things physically but that stage is over for the bible says in Ephesians 6:12 we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities rules of darkness mashetani and if any of us fight physically we are bound to fail coz the devil is the main enemy not people.
“So, no point of bitterness anger unforgiveness or fits of rage! It is time to put the full armour of god it is battle time on my knees I’ve gone to pray and started a 3 day fast for my marriage and my family I know I shall see the salvation of the Lord in my home! God has already given me victory by faith!”

Corazon, Frankie and Maureen banged heads
When Corazon Kwamboka revealed the father of her unborn baby as Frankie Just Gym It, the former fiancé to Maureen Waititu, fans congratulated the couple.
But the two exes were not in good terms. Their fans were left confused when both took to social media to address allegations about each other and Maureen made a decision to move out of the home she used to live in with Frankie.
Speaking on his YouTube Channel, Frankie said, “I didn’t leave Maureen for Kwamboka, Maureen and I broke up then I met Kwamboka. It wasn’t planned that I’m gonna get rid of this beautiful thing that we had going on and go start another beautiful thing that now we have going on.”
Internet fell in love with Elsa Majimbo and Azziad Nasenya
Tik Tok star Azziad Nasenya became famous after her video dancing to Femi One and Mejja’s song Utawezana went viral. But as much as Kenyans supported her, she was also bullied online, as “The first hours it was all nice, people were being happy and positive about it, it was really cool. But after 8 hours, it started being so bad, they were comparing, creating memes and making videos about me. It was so bad that I wanted to delete all my social media accounts. I had some weird friends who also showed me bad videos about me some I had not even seen; I was like I’m not as strong as I thought. I knelt down and prayed to God. The bullying was overnight I didn’t even sleep. I used to go for the interviews and smile then go back to the house and cry. Trust me suicidal thoughts crossed my mind. I deleted my Twitter Account,” she said.
Another online star who made headlines was social media sensation Elsa Majimbo with her funny videos.
One of her comical videos was aired on Comedy Central Africa, and she was featured on Forbes. Majimbo won several international awards including E! Peoples Choice Awards, Streamy Award and GQ Entertainer of the Year Award.
Jalang’o wedding and boys club scandal
Popular comedian Jalang’o made headlines last year for both good and bad reasons. When the radio personality wedded the mother of his two kids Amina Chao in October, many took to social media to congratulate him.
However, the good vibes quickly changed when the ladies from the lakeside took to social media to blast the radio host, saying there are more than enough of them to go around and he should have picked one of them. The second time he made headlines was when a chat from his ‘Boys Club’ Whatsapp group was leaked and the group was accused of cheating on their partners with several women.
Addressing the allegations, he said, “Everybody misunderstood us. There are things people talk about in my ‘Boys Club’. When COVID-19 hit, two of my friends are not married and they kept telling us we are enjoying it and we told them to marry and sent pictures of their girlfriends and that is what people saw.”
Teen Socialite Shakilla entangled in scandals
19-year-old socialite Shakilla Tiffany Amin (pictured), popularly known as Shakilla, came to the limelight after she claimed to have slept with 15 Kenyan celebrities. When Kenyan football star Victor Wanyama sued her, she was forced to make a public apology claiming she had been under the influence of alcohol.
Shakilla did not slow down on attracting drama. She was later arrested for trespassing Willy Paul’s home.
The musician said Shakilla just showed up at his place of residence, “I would like to address an issue that occurred yesterday at my residence at around 12 midnight. The estate security noticed a lady at my gate that was forcefully trying to enter my house. They informed me immediately and I went only to find out that its the “famous Shakilla”. I immediately reported to the police and she was arrested for trespassing.” The socialite later claimed she was set up.
