A beef is brewing between members of renowned Meru music group, Ameru Crew and Jojo king , a gospel artiste from Maua.

The beef emerged on social media after Jojo King posted a sneak preview of his upcoming video and warned the Ameru crew that ‘the King is back.’
In the video featuring DK kwenye beat, Jojo King clad in white declares himself ‘Meru king’.
Jojo King said, “#‎wycliffmithomi‬ ‪#‎Amerucrew‬ the king is back…give way.. Watch that”
He continued: Wycliffe Muthomi Ameru Crew… Who’s the boss”
Then he posted: “Maua ni siti na sio siri. Watch and tell those Ameru Crew the Iam the Jojo King Baba Mukuru”
“Iam the Jojo King Baba Mukuru…the rest can only smell it…and the Ameru Crew are just wasting and losing it..”
This led to a retort from Wycliffe Muthomi, a member of the Ameru Crew, who declared Jojo King a copy cat.
He then posted a preview of their upcoming video, Mazingira saying, “SOMEONE TELL Steve Roots Kumari we the pioneers.. We invented this!
You copy everything from how Nassizu Mmoja and Kayfar Watanashati watanashati wear to how Ameru Crew Do their music. Now we take it to the Bush.. Can you handle it? We conservationists.”

Muthomi continued, “Am not a beefing person but this dude from Maua is just too much! Ushawai skiza mziki mpaka unazima TV/Radio alafu unakunyua dawa ya kichwa kumaliza maumivu”

“I listened to some new music and watched a video by a purported Meru King.. And I think Hii aibu imetosha! Wewe SI Meru king ata queen huwesmake!!”

“Never listened to such WACK! Music in my life!!! I think this artist from Maua should desist from calling himself Eti ‪#‎MeruKing‬ Bure Kabisa.. How do you pick Ameru Crew ‘s chorus and proceed to do a collabo with Dk Kwenye Beat without our permission?….

But Jojo King answered: #‎Amerucrew‬ mwinire was stolen from Tunwinire,you all have to wait until the king brings new stuffAmeru CrewwWycliffe MuthomieMuthomi…Iam your motor in this one…


One of the fans, Martin Mutwiri commented, “I honestly want to think that this whole Ameru Crew and Steve Roots Kumari (Jojo) beef is a promotional stunt to hype both of their videos.”

“If its a real one, I will be so embarrassed. I will be like the reason why we can’t be a power house is because we drag down our own. We shoot down our own, criticize our own and hate on our own.” he warned.

We hope Meru artistes work in harmony without belittling each other.

Even at a time when law enforcement and justice systems in Kenya are very elaborate, residents of Kimachia in Tigania West find a place for age old traditional systems.


A man suspected of impregnating his 13 year old daughter was stripped, applied ash, draped with dry banana leaves and an immature banana bunch hung on his neck.

He was then paraded along the village streets for all to see.

This was known as ‘Gwaikua Nchandi’, a punishment meted out by age-mates to an errant member of community.

Smallholder farmers in Kenya are set to gain from the school feeding programme that aims at providing midday meals to children in arid and semi-arid areas.

The initial pilot programme targeted about 12 counties.

These included Meru, Baringo, Elgeyo-Marakwet, Kilifi, and Laikipia. Others were Mwingi and Kitui, Nandi, Narok, Trans Nzoia, and Uasin Gishu.

About 15,000 smallholder farmers are now part of the 134 organizations that access the school markets. About 6,500 of these are women.

In the current year, the government has set aside about Sh850 million for the Home Grown School Feeding Programme.
