Some Wounds Just Don’t Heal, Amira Responds To Jimal’s Apology
Jimal Marlow Roho Safi’s wife Amira has finally reacted to his apology, saying it will take time for her wounds to heal.
Amira took to her Instagram page to reveal that Jimal’s apology took her to a dark place due to what happened in the past, adding that he ‘triggered a lot of emotions.’
“That apology has taken me back to one of the darkest places I have ever been in my life because I have reflected on so much that happened in public and behind closed doors and it has triggered a lot of emotions,” said Amira.
In his apology, the Chairman of the Association of Matatu operators acknowledged having aired dirty linen in public and subjecting his wife to ridicule.
“I knew you were hurting but I just couldn’t get myself together! Amira, I am doing this because the disrespect was also as loud. I apologize for all the disrespect, for all the embarrassment, for all the hurt, for all the pain, for all the trauma…I am sorry for all the times I haven’t been the man I promised to be,” read part of Jimal’s apology.
Jimal apologized for how their relationship became famous, announcing his relationship with socialite Amber Ray in public, which was followed by drama that almost resulted in a physical altercation.
“You’re my wife I was supposed to protect you and never associate you with any kind of drama! I failed and I admit it…Please forgive me…Me and you come from way back and for me to put you through all that mess was distasteful,” wrote Jimal.

However, even though Jimal has apologized and promised to change for the better, Amira says she can’t come to any resolution at the moment.
“It’s heavy, I can’t comprehend right now but I ask Allah to give grace. Some wounds just don’t heal, you have to learn how to live with them,” wrote Amira.
She Was Young At The Time, Tanasha Donna On Grudge With Bey T
Barely two years after Tanasha Donna and Bey T stormed the internet to fight over a catchphrase, Tanasha has finally given details on her beef with the rapper for the first time.
According to the musician, the misunderstanding came after they both disagreed on an issue.
In an interview with KISS FM, the musician cum entrepreneur said Bey T was young and was misled by people into instigating petty quarrels.
“Honestly speaking I think it was just a misunderstanding, it started over a quote, the ‘Kenya to the world’ thing. And I like she was young at the time and like people tried instigating drama. You know how people can be… people can easily corrupt one’s mind, especially when there is nothing going on,” she said.
According to Tanasha, it is easy to have the feeling that people are out to kill your shine when starting, especially as a young girl in a competitive industry.
“Talking from experience as a young girl you can feel easily like people are out to get you or steal your shine…but I feel like she’s a great artist so she was trying to spit some bars which she is amazing at and I’ll give her credit for that,” she added.
The mother of one confirmed that they have a good relationship following their beef and now are both open to the idea of collaborating with Bey T even though the two have never met yet.
“Why not? I mean I like her music and she’s amazing. Plus, right now, we’re at a good place, we haven’t really met but we have people in common whom we work with,” she said.
Amid their banter, Bey T went ahead to drop a diss track called ‘Don to the Donna’ attacking Tanasha for allegedly sampling her music in 2019.
“Someone tell Tanasha to stop wave riding,” Bey T wrote on Instagram at the time.
According to the rapper, the phrase “Kenya to the World” originated from her, but Tanasha stole it.
