Twitter Streets: Hot Trends Today- February 11
Twitter Spits Out Weetabix, Baked Beans Combo Campaign
Weetabix is in “hot water” if their latest social media campaign is anything to go by. On Tuesday (Feb. 9), the company, through their official Twitter account, introduced a new breakfast suggestion for fans – baked beans on your bix.
“Why should bread have all the fun, when there’s Weetabix? Serving up @HeinzUKBeanz on bix for breakfast with a twist. #ItHasToBeHeinz #HaveYouHadYourWeetabix,” they tweeted, alongside an image of baked beans served in between two Weetabix biscuits.
Safe to say, Twitter could not stomach the unfathomable combination. Corporate account, @UberEats replied: “We can send you some food if you need it, just ask. DM’s are open”.
Even @KFC was ready to spit out the suggested combo. “Alexa how do I delete someone else’s tweet”, they quoted @Weetabix‘s post. Check out some more reactions below. Also, do tell us, would you try it out? Tweet us, @KenyaBuzz.

Ochungulo Family Parts Ways
One of Kenya’s biggest Gengetone groups, Ochungulo Family, has confirmed to have broken up after a three-year stint. The boyband group, consisting of D More, Nelly the Goon and Benzema, issued an official statement saying their decision to part ways and pursue their own work was “a mutual feeling and we saw that as the best way forward.” “We have reached a point we have different goals & targets,” continued the statement.
It further went on to thank fans for contributing to the group’s years of success. “We wanna say Thank you [the fans] for the support you have given us the past for few years. You have been good to us, God has been good to us & the music has been good to us.”
Benzema has been prepping for his solo career since before the group announced the split, having done a series of hits and collaborations including “Foto Moto”, “Paka Permit” and most recently, “Bypass”.
Ochungulo Family’s YouTube Channel has since been transferred to Nelly the Goon. Having earned 158,000 subscribers, all past music content on the channel has since been deleted.
I’ve seen word going round that Ochungulo Family have split if it’s true would be sad. But the way the Kenyan entertainment scene is set up, with all their songs on YouTube missing could just be them releasing something new so traffic ipande. Anyway wacha tuone.
