kenyan Gospel singer and EMB boss Kevin Bahati had former producer, Producer Paulo arrested for the second time, on Saturday.
According to the producer, someone called him to go pick an award he had won earlier from town and on getting there, he was arrested and taken back to central police station where he spent the night
“Bahati and Weezdom came to the station and said Producer was spoiling his name because they had agreed before that he was not supposed to say anything about what happened during the first arrest. So basically Bahati said he was taking him to jail,” said Producer Paulo’s lawyer called Kioko.
This is the second time Bahati has had Producer Paulo arrested after choosing to help singer Peter Blessing who opted to leave EMB Records where he was signed.
During the first arrest, Paulo was arrested alongside Peter Blessing who spent three days behind bars after someone tricked them into an interview with Daily Nation.

Asa hardly does interviews in Nigeria. just at the start of her interview on Cool FM on Wednesday, January 22, 2020, the singer revealed that her last radio interview in Nigeria was about ‘a year ago’.
One of the highlights of the interview was when she playfully revealed that she is a Marlian, a pop-culture term for fans of Nigerian rapper Naira Marley.
“I think I’m a Marlian. I love him, I think he is awesome,” Asa said.
The music star took to his Twitter page on Friday, January 24, 2020, where he shared a very cute tweet that has gotten everyone including the loyal members of ‘Wizkid FC’ in that ‘aww’ moment.
“To see my sons smile brighten every grey sky 😇❤️🦅 #MadeinLagos,” he tweeted. Since he posted that tweet, he has received over eight thousand likes and comments and they are still pouring in.
It is a known fact that Wizkid has a very cordial relationship with his sons although sometimes his love for these kids has been doubted because of the sour relationship he has with some of his baby mamas over the last few years.
Zion is Wizkid’s third son with Jada Pollock. Prior to Zion’s birth, he already had two other sons (Boluwatife and Ayo) with two baby mamas (Shola Ogudugu and Diamond Binta Diallo).

Veteran radio presenter and disc jockey Andy Dosty has taken a swipe at Pastor Love, former husband of Obaapa Christy, over some “shameful” comments he made about the gospel musician recently.
Pastor Love had said in an interview that he picked Obaapa Christy from the gutters and polished her, stressing that people would be disappointed in him for marrying the singer if he decides to post old photos of her on social media.
During the Headlines segment on his Daybreak Hitz show, Thursday, Andy Dosty said it was repugnant for Pastor Love to have made such a comment.
“You picked her from the gutters and polished her. Is this something you should brag about? What a shame!” He jabbed.
Obaapa Christy and Pastor Love became a topic of major discussion in 2011 when the two publicly counter accused each other of reckless adultery and unrestrained infidelity.
The female musician accused her pastor-husband of continuous domestic violence and alleged he had impregnated a church member.
After over 4 years of battling the divorce case in court, Pastor Love and Obaapa Christy parted ways legally in 2019.
In December, she got married and joyously took to Instagram to share photos of her traditional marriage ceremony.
“You’re the Love of my life and my best friend. I’m so happy that I get to spend the rest of my life with you …. I love the ways you find to make me smile every single day. I promise to spend every day trying to make you smile too. I love you ‘Meine Liebe’,” her post read.
Comedian and radio presenter Oga Obinna is under fire following a recent Instagram post. The comedian shared a photo of a heavily pregnant Tanzanian actress Tausi Mdegela.
What rattled his fans was the caption that accompanied the post. What seemed to be a funny joke to the popular comedian, was interpreted as gross disrespect by majority of his followers who termed his choice of words as offensive.
In the post, the father of four said that men have no limits and wondered why any man would impregnate someone like Tausi who has dwarfism. Obinna tagged Joe Muchiri and Blak Aende who also went on to joke about the post.
His joke, however, did not please many who called him out for pulling such a stunt.
The obviously agitated fans went on to say that he should have respect for all human beings, as some asked for God’s forgiveness on his life.
Actress-cum-comedienne Esther Chebet also weighed in on Obinna’s post which he has since deleted. Speaking from an experienced perceptive, Chebet said that the post was inappropriate and shameful.
“As a mother raising a special need child, I find this post inappropriate and shameful. Tausi is an amazing woman I have interacted with her on several occasions. She just had a baby the other day with her husband Chris,” she said.
“Inauma sana kuona mtu anaeheshimika kama wewe kufanya utani ulemavu. Kaka hujafa hujaumbika. Kumbuka bado uzazi unao. This is the kind of cyber bullying my son and others should prepare for! Today you’ve proved that just being exposed to the real world doesn’t change your mindset. Mbilikimo pia ni binaadam wenye hisia tu kama watoto wenu mnaowazaa. I pray you don’t get yourself in a situation where you’ll have to explain to the world why your child is as he or she is,” she added.
Its indeed clear that the comedian rubbed his online fans the wrong way. However, in a separate post, it looks like the comedian is un-bothered by the anger he sparked online.
Laughs off criticism
In another post, Obinna argued that he was only joking and many people took-his joke way too seriously.
“These jokes don’t need Makasiriko. Feelings receipts below? John 8:7 Now that I have your attention – check my brand new jam on YouTube…”he unapologetically posted.
Tausi has never shied away from sharing details of her pregnancy with her fans, together with her husband who goes by the name Chris. The two welcomed a bouncing baby girl a week ago.
According to the National News Agency of Lebanon, famed singer Nancy Ajram’s husband Fadi Al-Hachem has been charged with murder by public-prosecutor in Mount Lebanon, judge Ghada Aoun.
The judge said the charge might be dropped if the defence proves Al-Hachem acted in self-defence. The judge asked for the footage from Ajram’s home surveillance cameras.
The preliminary footage released on local television network MTV showed a masked man holding what appeared to be a gun.
The charge comes after Al-Hachem shot dead an intruder by firing at him several times on 5 January. Allegedly, the intruder broke into the house with the purpose of theft.
The case has raised media interest due to Ajram’s popularity, while the intruder was identified as 30-year-old Mohamed Hassan Moussa, of Syrian origin.
Shortly after the incident, Al-Hachem was detained for questioning and later released.
The couple’s children were in the house at the time of the incident.
Ajram shot to fame with ‘Akhasmak Ah’ video clip almost two decades ago, and has since become one of the most popular pop singers in the Arab region, producing a series of hit albums and starring in the most prestigious international talent shows.
