1. The “Newlyweds”
This couple is so excited about the new-found “love” that they will not hide it. Even though it reaches the public as a rumour first, you will begin to catch them together often. They are likely to be people you’ve never seen together before. Quickly, their relationship status on Facebook will change.
However, they will still be slightly uncomfortable at the prospect of being seen together, so they will never let you bump into them while they are walking in the company of each other. Immediately they spot you from a distance, the split is instant. The one you do not know will walk on ahead and the partner will engage you in a chit-chat, like nothing just happened, then run on to catch up with the new wifey/hubby. The lady will have an extra load of laundry to do every weekend. In addition, a third party, namely an unlucky roommate, will understand what it means to be in exile, Idi Amin style.
2. The Soap Opera Couple
These two will be the ultimate lovebirds. Either of them did something crazy to get the other to ‘ingia box’, typically the man. Maybe he stole her away from his roommate. Maybe he even threatened to commit suicide if she rejected him. Whatever the case, they are together right now. Their relationship is the ultimate telenovela.
They have broken up several times. One of them has cheated on the other (or both). Screaming in the hostel corridors is not strange to them. The girl will wail for anyone within a kilometre radius to hear, unashamed. Doors will be banged in the dead of the night; there might even be physical blows. Interestingly enough, the two will be back together in a span of 24 hours.
The pieces will be sewn back in the dark corners of K or J where lights constantly flicker or on the lifeless paths bisecting the campus. And the drama will continue. Who needs to watch a soap opera then? This one is free, no LAN or TV is necessary.
3. The Grown-ups
Needless to say, this is the couple that amazes me most. Everyone knows they are a couple right from first year. You will rarely see them together since they operate in such a seamless manner that you may even think they are not a couple. They do not follow each other everywhere like two blind mice.
During the day, they will go about their business separately. They will cosy up at night and enjoy each other’s company. Even when they are in the same class, they will sit seats apart from each other. And it’s not that the relationship is a secret.
No, they just don’t smother each other. They are also likely to be the conservative kind that believes that their relationship is their business not everyone else’s. In fact, they may never put up their relationship status on Facebook. If you want relationship advice, these are the people you want to go to. They have attained self-actualization. The mentor couple is what it is.
4. The Joined-at-the-Hip Duo
These are just the ones! Be it day or night, they will always be holding hands. Public Display of Affection (PDA) is not an issue to them. If they had a chance, they’d probably never let go of each other, lest one of them one collapses from the lack of oxygen the other provides. It is pure drama if the two are classmates. They will sit together in class, do CATs jointly in the spirit of Harambee and even enlist in the same discussion group. Do I need to mention that the two live together?
At some point, a baby will pop up with a bizarre name (which is totally trendy for the couple) and they will officially have earned their three degrees. The baby also makes it a pretty sealed deal. All they need to do after campus is solemnize the union in about five years when they are ready.
5. The Unaware
Oh yes, these are very tight friends. Visit his room, she’s there. Look at her status updates on Facebook, his likes and comments are all over. He will see her off if she’s going somewhere. He’s her electrician, she’s his cook. Ask the girl what they are and she will say they are just friends. The guy may not be too sure. Fortunately or unfortunately, people will start talking.
Within no time, the two are a couple to everyone else but themselves. Most of the time, it’s as a result of too many idle minds in campus that have nothing better to do than match people up in their heads and start a story that circulates around campus. Other times, the two are just going through some major denial and will probably invite all of us to a wedding in 2016.
I am yet to conclusively point out which one of these survives after the four years are over; which one is not born out of the convenience of being in campus.

The once high flying teen music group Camp Mulla is no more. It has now been confirmed that two of its members Miss Karun and Taio Tripper have left it, to pursue solo careers.
In a statement released yesterday by their record label Sub Sahara Entertainment, Miss Karun is leaving the country for the US where she’ll join university as well as pursue a solo career.
Thee Mc Africa (previously known as The Taio Tripper), has specifically left the group to pursue a solo career.
Here’s the full statement.
A lot of rumours have been floating around social media about the Kenyan superstar group Camp Mulla. The group’s members have matured since the band’s inception but Camp Mulla is alive and kicking it big.
It is true that Miss Karun is no longer with the group; she has left the group to prepare to join University in the USA in August. She’s also working on solo projects. Another of the group’s former members, Thee Mc Africa (previously known as The Taio Tripper) is also pursuing a solo career. Both Miss Karun and Thee Mc Africa are wished all the best in their pursuits.
Kus Ma and Shappa still carry the Camp Mulla flag and are the new face of the group. They recently gave an excellent performance in Durban, South Africa, gracing the same stage as Snoop Lion at the MTV ALL STARS©, on 18th May. Their performance featured popular Kenyan artist Collo and introduced hot newcomer, Tiri. Camp Mulla gave the crowd an exclusive listen to their new collabo, Chafua. Tiri also launched her first banger Mash Up.
She is a solo artist under the label.
A change is better than a rest and Camp Mulla still stands tall. With the smashing performance at the MTV ALL STARS, Kus Ma and Shappa show no signs of Camp Mulla slowing down.
Actor and radio presenter Nick Mutuma, launched his music video last Friday at Skyluxx Lounge. It features Lyra Aoko, with the who’s who in the entertainment industry appearing in it.
This being his debut song, Kenyans expected ‘something’, but unfortunately, going by their reactions, the Shuga actor did not live up to their expectations.
The whole day yesterday, Mutuma was trending on Twitter and I really hope he did not read what people wrote about 254 Anthem, as the video is titled. Here’s a sample of what was said.
Friends don’t let friends drink and record songs. Disappointed with Nick mutuma’s friends’
Mutuma releases a song, Obama skips Kenya. If he releases another song, i swear even peeps from Rongai won’t visit us..
BREAKING: Bensouda spotted in Kenya trying to arrest Nick Mutuma for crimes against humanity.”
So Nick Mutuma raps now? WHAT HAPPENED TO HAVING HONEST FRIENDS?”
Nick Mutuma’s music does to people what bullets did to Pistorius’ girlfriend.”
Ruto’s reaction after listening to Nick Mutuma’s song..
So what do I have to do not to listen to the Mutuma’s song?
“Toto kula ama nikueke ngoma ya Nick Mutuma”"
Music ain’t for everybody…hehe just butt out Nick Mutuma.. You cute tho, do pictorials dropping off your jeans and stuff!! That be cool..
The Nick Mutuma’s song was also featured in 1000 Ways To Die
Nick Mutuma is making Bamzigi feel like he is 2Pac.
I think Nick Mutuma’s video is a diversion by the US government to make sure Kenyans concentrate less on the Obama not coming to Kenya issue
N.mutuma ameimba wimbo ya kurudisha nyoka pangoni
He’s so lucky he is pretty,,,,coz this is just lazy work,,,,check sauti sol,even utawala by juliani ish!!!!
Lazima uchape wife ukimpata na ringtone ya Nick Mutuma
I like him better as an actor
So President Uhuru is in Office Pretending that Nick Mutuma’s Decision to do music is Not Matter of National security. smh
Whether people were just joining the dissing bandwagon, so as to feel they belong, I don’t know, but the song is not as bad as some tweets would make you think.
Here’s the video; do you think it’s that bad?
We now know that Obama will never visit Kenya as president, but the reasons will always be a matter of speculation. Here’s what Kenyans on Twitter think might be the reason Obama has snubbed Kenya.

The company that was contracted for this is VistaJet, a firm with over 100 Bombardier Challenger planes.
Ruto left the country aboard the jet on Thursday for a four-nation trip which took him to Gabon, Congo, Nigeria and Algeria.
The government was however quick to deny paying Sh 100 million. A statement released to media houses yesterday said that the government only paid Sh 18.5 million. It further added that that was cheaper than paying tickets for commercial airlines for the entire delegation.
Whatever the amount paid, Ruto travelled in class, and we have photos of how the plane looked like from the inside, courtesy of VistaJet themselves.

This photo, released by ODM director of communications Phillip Etale, shows former prime minister Raila Odinga, his son Raila Odinga Juniour and his brother Oburu Odinga watching Arsenal’s final game of the season.
Arsenal was playing against Newcastle and won by a single goal. That was however enough to seal their spot at the European Champions League next season.
Raila is a life gooner and that can be explained by his scarf and… wait is that KEG he’s drinking?
Anyway, just about two minutes before Arsenal scored, Raila tweeted this.
Come on you Gunners!
