Tahidi High‘s Omosh Pleads for Your Help
Joseph Kinuthia, popularly known as Omosh from the hit classic series Tahidi High is facing eviction over rent arrears. Married to two wives and five kids to fend for, Omosh burst into tears during an interview over the weekend claiming he had been “surviving through friends and neighbors,” since exiting the show.
“All this time I have been jobless without any source of income. I had tried other gigs but they did not materialize. It has been a tough journey, especially now with the pandemic,” he said. “I cannot provide for my children, they are now wondering what I have become”.
Omosh is now pleading for help to secure a job, “even if I will be getting Sh200 a day,” he says. “I don’t mind about class and even if someone decides to start a hotel business where I can sell porridge and tea, I am okay with that.”
Kenyans have taken to social media addressing the situation affecting the arts scene following the now viral clip.

Only people who’ve never hit rock bottom can laugh at Omosh. Trust me, hii life haina formula. Leo yeye, kesho wewe. Just be grateful with what you have and show empathy for those who are down

Zack Snyder’s Justice League Trailer Released
HBO Max has released the official trailer for their upcoming Justice League: Snyder Cut movie. Determined to ensure Superman’s (Henry Cavill) ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) aligns forces with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with plans to recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions.
The task proves more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own pasts to transcend that which has held them back, allowing them to come together, finally forming an unprecedented league of heroes. Now united, Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and The Flash (Ezra Miller) may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad, and Darkseid — and their dreadful intentions.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League premieres on the streaming platform March 18th, 2021. Check out the trailer below!

Commemorating World Radio Day
Last Friday (Feb. 13) marked World Radio Day. The day is commemorated to raise awareness about the importance of radio. As the world changes, so does radio. Thus, during the Covid-19 pandemic, radio made it possible, for example, to ensure continuity of learning, to fight against misinformation, and to promote barrier gestures.
New World, New Radio is, therefore, an ode to the resilience of radio. It is a tribute to its capacity for perpetual adaptation at the rate of societal transformations and listeners’ new needs. Accessible anywhere and anytime, radio reaches a broad audience. It presents itself as an arena where all voices can be expressed, represented, and heard hence why radio is still the most consumed medium worldwide today.
This year’s 10th edition theme is sub-divided into three; Evolution: The world changes, radio evolves – radio is resilient and sustainable; Innovation: The world changes, radio adapts and innovates- radio adapts to new technologies and remains the go-to medium of mobility, accessible everywhere and to everyone; and Connection: The world changes, radio connects – radio services our society during natural disasters, socio-economic crises, epidemics, etc.
“As we commemorate the world radio day, we realize that radio has continued to be adaptive and innovative, we therefore need to support radio to continue operating”~ Mr. Maina Muiruri, Chairman @MediaCouncilK giving the closing remarks and vote of thanks.#WorldRadioDayKe#WRDKE pic.twitter.com/CgegJOyhyk

Happy World Radio Day. Radio is a media platform for communication. I was an intern at the @kicd_kenya in the media services department. I was part of the team, developing educational programs. Technology has revolutionized radio by adding visual appeal to it. #WorldRadioDay2021 pic.twitter.com/xUnIXlFg9s
