Phil-it productions has lately blown up in the film industry by producing the new ‘click click bang’ movie which has been received very well by Kenyans.

This is after holding a premiere at the Kenya cinema and managing to scoop Ksh. 2.5 million during its opening.

Speaking during an interview with SPMBuzz, the Phil-it CEO, Philip Karanja explained on the tactics they instilled for their major success.

“We did research on why the film industry isn’t that successful in Kenya, for over a year,” said Philip.

The renowned Kenya Director, Philip Karanja, is famously known to many as the former Citizen TV’s drama show, Tahidi High where he played the character ‘Melvin’.

The father of two is married to Catherine Kamau alias Kate Actress, a celebrated Kenyan Actress, a brand ambassador not to mention an entrepreneur who has continued to up her game in the industry for a long while.

Philip Karanja has not only produced Click Click Bang but also, A Grand Little Lie which was nominated for the Best movie in East Africa at the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCA).

Click Click Bang is based on a true story from Abel Mutua’s ‘Young and Stupid’ episodes on YouTube.

Phil had earlier opened up, speaking on ManCave, he explained on how his interest in film came in after he lost his dad adding on how he had to struggle with self-doubt and his lack of self-confidence.

“My dad passed away in Form 2 and it was a blessing in disguise. I used to do well in school not because I wanted to but just to impress my dad,” expressed Phil, “I never used to believe in myself. I used to overwork myself just to prove that I am good at what I do.”

President William Ruto Promises To Secure a Job For Kelvin Kiptum’s Wife Asenath

Kenyan President William Samoei Ruto has promised to secure a job for the late Kiptum’s wife, Asenath, and in addition to that, build her a second house and give her 5 million ksh so that she can be able to support the young two children left behind by the late Kelvin Kiptum.

Speaking on Friday at Kiptum’s funeral service in Keiyo South, Elgeyo Marakwet County, President Ruto said the government would support Kiptum’s family in honor of the pride and glory the late marathoner brought to the country.

This will be in addition to the two three-bedroom houses the government constructed for the late marathoner and his father in a record one week.

“Huyu kijana tushampatia milioni tano tayari naserikali itampatia nyumba mzuri mbali na ile tumejenga hapa. Mama Asenath nitaketi chini na gavana wa hapa ili tukubaliane ile kazi itatoshana na huyu mama ile aweze kusimamia watoto wa kijana wetu mwanariadha Kelvin Kiptum.” President Ruto shared.

In his address at the funeral ceremony, President Ruto eulogized Kiptum as an “ambitious, disciplined, and focused” sportsman.

He also encouraged the public to stay focused and not let Kelvin’s death deter them from accomplishing and doing the most for the country, as it is not just a lesson to learn from his death but also a reminder that it is also right to leave a good legacy behind.

“I say Kelvin, even in his death, is speaking to us as Kenyans that we may not have gold, we may not have so much, and that should not deter us from being the great country that we must be. All of us as the people of Kenya must love this country enough to be able to make Kenya great,’ President Ruto addressed the gathering.

The late Kiptum died in a road crash on the Elgeyo Marakwet-Eldoret road. His Rwandan coach, Gervais Hakizimana, 36, also died in the crash. He has been laid to rest in Naiberi, Eldoret.

Nilikua Najua Hao Wataachana Tuh ~ Dem Wa Facebook Reveals Dark Secrets that led To Mungai Eve and Director Trevor’s Fall out

A controversial Kenyan female who goes by the name ‘Dame Wa Facebook’ has shared secrets and the reason behind Kenyan YouTubers’s fallout: Trevor and Mungai Eve.

Speaking in a brief interview we had with her, she said that she already knew from the first time she saw them that they were not going to work because of, first, the same age gap that they had; in other words, they were age mates, and Trevor’s priorities were eye-set on different things rather than concentrating on his girlfriend Eve.

“Kitu ya kwanza hawo wote ni watoto… mimi nilikua najua hiyo relationship is not going anywhere…juu hata ukiangalai age ni same… Ata Andrew kibe alikua ashatabiri sisi tulikua tuh tunangoja waachane.

Hata mimi trevor siwezi date juu ni myoung ni mtu anafikiria wanawake wengine…hawa wote hakuna mtu mature.” Dem Wa Facebook shared.

She goes on to share an insight on what the two should do, saying they are not good to each other and they should each find other people who are way older and more mature than them. Pointing out that there were so many things that were off, including them staying without a child for that long and having the necessity to raise one, as per her, not wanting to have kids while they were together was a big red flag that they were not meant to be.

Adding to that, as much as she knew this was going to happen, she kept her lips shut because she knew if she dare opened her mouth and said something about their relationship, they would criticize and call her names, hence why she opted to just keep silent and let it happen, or rather unfold right before their eyes.

“Wangesema mimi ni adui wa maendeleo. Hatuwezi waambia tunanyamanzanga wakiachana ndio tunakuja kupiga nduru.”

Calling Trevor a coward for renaming their YouTube channel, as he should have just let it be.

An Angry Truth Watchdog has called out Kenyan online media channels for campaigning and pushing topics that they haven’t justified yet.

Watchdog shared his disappointment with online media channels for propagating false information about celebrities tarnishing their names when they haven’t even confirmed the whole story. In this case, he was particularly referring to Kenyan female YouTuber Mungai Eve.

He feels like the media didn’t do right by propagating false, unjustified news and intel regarding Mungai Eve, adding that just because someone is trending doesn’t mean you go sourcing for stories that talk negatively about her, and most importantly, something that happened way back in the day.

“By the way, online media mukuwe na heshima na mukuwe na adabu hii ujinga ya kuleta vitu zenye hata hujui sijui Eve was cheated on and beaten up by Director Trevor. Eve anakaa msee wa kupigwa anyamanze yule???” Watchdog shared his disappointment with the online media that was defaming Mungai Eve.

Apparently there has been circulating news that has been persistent because Mungai Eve and Trevor sparkled breakup rumours, and many online media and blogs came with different stories regarding their relationship; some even said that their relationship was over like a years ago.

“We worked together last year while not being in a romantic relationship until February this year when we officially decided to part ways” Director Trevor shared.
