You have to marry us! Twin sisters demand of Jimmy Gait
Gospel singer and minister Jimmy Gait is back in the news and this time, it’s because twin sisters are trying to marry him by force.
This may sound ludicrous but it’s actually a thing that is troubling the decorated Gospel ace who took to Instagram to narrate on how the pair has been tormenting him and forcing themselves onto him.
The Furi Furi hitmaker, in a series of videos, broke down how these girls had been texting him, seducing him, bombarding him with endless texts and even threatening him to marry them or face unspecified consequences.

THIS IS VERY SERIOUS!!
There are twins who have been on my case to marry them and they have vowed that if I don’t marry them no one else will. They have been sending me threats on text and promised to do anything to have me marry them. They say God has showed them it’s me and that’s final! They follow me everywhere and this is becoming increasingly threatening and so I have decided to write a statement at the police station so the matter can be handled from there. I can’t take the threats lightly!
Jimmy Gait, in a phone call with eDaily, confirmed that the story that had been doing rounds is actually true and that the anonymous girls have been stalking him and making his life hell.
‘This is actually not funny. These girls have been at it for months now and I am starting to think that they are up to no good. I have rebuffed all their advances and told them off very politely. But they have insisted on their advances and their threats. I am now deciding to take real legal action against them.’
Jimmy Gait is a Kenyan Gospel artiste with a string of hits under his belt and also a champion of youth entrepreneurship through his Make It or Make It Initiative.
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.
