Linda Ikeji posing with her Range Rover which she could directly attribute as success from blogging.

If you are/were one of the thousands people across the continent that relied on Linda Ikeji’s blog www.lindaikeji.blogspot.com for news, information,discussions etc, you may be dissapointed [or angry] to hear that the blog is currently offline with a message that appears to be due to a shut-down by Google (the owners of blogspot publishing platform)

According to several online information including tips and rumors spreading on social networks, Linda’s blog has been shut down by Google due to a claim made by Cybersquatter with twitter handle “AyeDee”. It is said, Ayedee informed Google about alleged plagiarism and copyright infringement something which forced Google to eventually shut down the popular blog.

While this moves sets a new kind of precedent as far as legal, illegal and common uses of materials available online with or without attributes, Linda could actually be a victim of success. After only 8 years since she started blogging, Linda is said to have made lots of money from advertisements and sponsorships. In celebrating her birthday earlier this year, Linda posted photos of her new “baby” [Range Rover] which could have left a bad taste to others who wishes they had reached the level of her success as blogger or digital entrepreneur.

Linda seems to be currently blogging at www.lindaikeji.mobi

George Otieno Okumu populary known as George Tyson, one of the earliest film directors in Tanzanian movie industry which is now famously known as Bongo Movies, is no more. According to numerous sources including social network’s posts from people close to him such as Ezden [through Instagram Account Ezdee255] and his ex wife(Monalisa), Tyson passed away following a car accident which occurred  when the crew of the production team of The Mboni Show [which George Tyson was its producer/director] were traveling from Dodoma to Dar-es-salaam. The crew was in Dodoma as part of  3rd years anniversary of the show. They had also shot new episodes and distributed desks at a couple of schools around Dodoma.

The said accident took place at Gairo-Morogoro area around 6pm-7pm. The Toyota Noah that they were traveling with experienced front tires burst before rolling several times. There was total of 8 passengers and while others are said to have suffered minor injuries, the accident killed Tyson. The host of the show,Mboni Masimba was not injured in the accident as per initial reports that circulated. She was traveling in a different vehicle.

George’s death comes as a shock to almost anyone who has been following news surrounding Tanzania’s movie industry lately. In less than three weeks, the industry has witnessed the passing of some of its core members. Just two weeks ago they lost one of the leading actor/director Adam Kuambiana. Before no one could forget, an actress Recho Haule passed away.

Tyson, who was 41 years old and originally from Kenya, is one of the most popular film directors in Tanzania and is also considered to be one of its pioneers. He became famous after producing and directing earlier movies such as Girl Friend and Dilemma.

In his movies, Tyson took an initiative of using anyone who he sees fit to bring the “reality” piece to the screen. For example, he used artists such as TID (in Girl Friend with theme from TID’s song ). His gamble turned out to be a great success that also gave the movie industry that had gone silent [or dead] for over two decades a brand new life.

Few years later after enjoying success from his Girl Friend movie, Tyson fell in love and married actress Yvonne Cherryl (Monalisa) who was the lead actress in Girl Friend. However, the couple divorced few years later. They have one child,Sonia Akinyi.

He later added documentaries producer/director to his portfolio. His notable documentary includes a TGNP project on Gender Equality which he directed and produced when  the organization was celebrating its 10th Anniversary.

As mentioned above,till his death he was the producer/director of The Mboni Show which airs on East Africa TV[EATV]. May his Soul Rest In Peace. Amen.

Habari hizo zinapasha kwamba msanii maarufu wa Hip Hop nchini,Albert Mangwair (Mangwea) amefariki dunia nchini Afrika Kusini katika hospitali ya Helen Joseph ya jijini Johanesburg alipopelekwa baada ya kugunduliwa na wenzake asubuhi kwamba alikuwa hoi. Hali hiyo ilimkuta maeneo ya Brixton-Mayfair West ambapo alikuwa amefikia kwa rafiki yake ambaye walisoma wote miaka ya nyuma.

BC imeweza kuthibitisha Exclusively kabisa kwamba ni kweli Ngwair amefariki dunia. Chanzo cha uhakika kutoka Afrika Kusini ambacho BC imeongea nacho kinasema kwamba Ngwair alikuwa asafiri leo kurudi Dar. Lakini asubuhi wenzake walipokwenda kumwamsha walimkuta yeye na mwenzake M to the P   wakiwa wamelala bila kujitambua.Juhudi za kuwafikisha hospitali zilifanyika lakini Ngwair ndio akawa ameshaaga dunia. Mwenzake  M to the P bado yupo hospitali na hali yake bado ni mbaya.

Kwa mujibu wa chanzo hicho na kwa mujibu wa maelezo ya awali ya Daktari, inaonekana kwamba jamaa walitumia aina fulani ya madawa ambayo bila shaka yaliwazidia (overdose). Uchunguzi kamili wa kitabibu bado unaendelea.

Inasemekana jana jioni alikutana Bar fulani na watanzania wengine takribani 20 hivi na ikatokea kwamba wakawa wanawataja wasanii wengine wa Bongo waliotangulia mbele za haki na kila lilipotajwa jina la msanii aliyefariki, Mangwea yeye akawa anajibu OMG!
