The two helped their respective teams produce what we never expected. Liverpool turned Barca’s 3-0 deficit by 4-0 without two of their best strikers. Tottenham on the other side turned a 1-0 Ajax FC defeat by 3-2, therefore, winning the semi-finals draw by away goals.

The two will now meet at Estadio Metropolitano (Home stadium to Atletico Madrid) on 1st June 2019. However, it is not clear whether Jurgen Klopp will put Kenya’s Divock Origi on the first line-up.

Congratulations to Victor Wanyama and Divock Origi for playing roles for Spurs and Liverpool respectively in a successful Champions League campaign,” Ruto wrote.

Ruto said that the two displayed a fierce “competitiveness,” devastating finishes to complete the epic and unexpected turnarounds.

It’s definitely strange, it takes adjusting. It took some time getting used to, for sure,” she told the Bustle.

Their wedding was supposed to be held on February 28. However, it was postponed to give some important guests plenty of notice. Some of the notable guests include Drake, Travis Scott, and Kylie Jenner.

The duo is expected to tie notes in Hillsong Church, New York very soon. The church bears a significance to the couple as they have often been pictured many times enjoying company outside the worship place.

He said that forgiveness is very vital in any relationship urging couples to appreciate the powers of saying sorry.

“No matter what you are going through in your marriage, relationship or life, just love your babes, stick to her, stay together, vumilianeni. Ukimkosea sema baby pole, ukichelewa kufika home sema babes pole, akipata SMS ya mpango wa kando mpe kipidree alafu mwambie babes pole, akikushika na dame/chali mwambie babes nakupenda nisamehe. Watu wengi hivunja relationships zao coz ya kushindwa kusema babes I’m sorry I love you forgive me” He wrote.

The governor concluded by asking, “Nani ashawai kosea mpenzi wake na akakubali?”

Most of Mike Sonko’s throwback photos featured moments in pimped nissans and matatus, a business that has earned him a lot of money up to date.

Hopekid has termed the Gospel Music industry as a hostile one in an interview with Mseto East Africa.

The singer was early this year involved in threesome sex with DK Kwenye Beat. After the romous flogged all over the internet, the two apologized for the act. They termed it as “Devils work.”

The gospel world is full of hypocrites! That’s what I have come to understand,” he said adding, “I have been to four churches and been chased away from the churches because of the scandal. There are even some friends who dumped me. They were saying ‘I don’t want to be associated with him (Hopekid) because I’ll lose followers’.”

Hopekid also revealed that at this point he wanted to write a book. However, he remembered that he was called to sing and not write.

At the end of the day, I used to believe the church is a place where the broken ones go and feel comforted, but the church of nowadays is driving away from the youths. Tunafukuzwa church, Tutaenda wapi?” Hopekid asked.

He concluded by thanking Bishop Odendo for walking with him during that hard time.
