A New York performance artist on Saturday swallowed the celebrated banana duct-taped to a gallery wall at Art Basel Miami Beach, which had just sold to a collector for 120,000 U.S. dollars.
The banana art piece, “Comedian,” is the work of Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan. It was displayed at the museum on Friday.

The performance artist David Datuna ate the banana at around 1:45 p.m. in front of art lovers, according to gallery representatives.
A report from the Herald said that his behavior triggered some noises as one visitor shouted: “You’re not supposed to touch the art!” Datuna slipped away before the gallery reported the incident to security, the newspaper reported.
“He did not destroy the art work. The banana is the idea,” said Lucien Terras, director of museum relations for Galerie Perrotin.

In an interview with The Post, Datuna explained that he was doing an art performance called “Hungry Artist.”
“Maurizio Cattelan, I love him. One artist eats another artist. It’s fun,” the report quoted him as saying.
It’s reported that the gallery re-taped a new banana to the wall after 2 p.m. the same day.
Cattelan actually made three editions of the banana piece. Two, including the one eaten by Datuna, were sold to two French buyers. The third one, according to art market website Artnet, has already been priced at 150,000 U.S. dollars.
Cattelan said this project took him about a year, as he explored with different materials like bronze and resin for the banana. “In the end, one day I woke up and I said, ‘The banana is supposed to be a banana,'” Cattelan told Artnet.
Kirinyaga Governor Anne Mumbi Waiguru has made her first heartfelt public confession about her husband lawyer Kamotho Waiganjo.
Speaking to Inooro TV in an exclusive interview about her private life, Waiguru said she has neither met nor seen a man as perfect as the First Kirinyaga Gentleman.
“I even have no words. He is the only one among all men you see. I mean there is absolutely no other like him in the world, an emotional Governor Waiguru confessed of her love for Waiganjo.

Asked why he is the most ‘perfect man in the world’, the mother of three sons said that during difficult times he has always stood with her.
She recounted the trauma she went through when she was accused of stealing money from the National Youth Service (NYS) money, and Kamotho was always by her side.
“He was always there for me. I went through hell, but he made me come out stronger,” she recounted.
The two solemnized their union in July in a Kikuyu traditional wedding.
Present to witness the ceremony were President Uhuru Kenyatta, ODM leader Raila Odinga and other distinguished dignitaries.
Waiguru and Kamotho first met in 2009 when they both attended a government conference in Mombasa.
Their relationship would later grow into a beautiful love story.
Kamotho has represented his wife even before marriage in many court cases among them, NYS scandal and election dispute related charges.
It has been weeks full of sad news, dull economic times, political theatrics and now the floods. However, Kenyans especially netizens, have always found ways to lighten the moods.
A female pastor who is also a pastor’s wife in Deliverance Church of Kenya has excited Kenyans after her sermon in regards to sex in marriage went viral.
In the sermon titled ‘Godly woman Godly marriage,’ the pastor advises married couples to spice things up in their sex life in order to kill boredom and to save their marriages.
The pastor insists that sex is a very important aspect of every marriage and revealed that it is indeed a unique game that was designed by God.
“Sex is the only game that God created, all the others are man-made,” she said
Unlike other games like football and volleyball, the pastor believes that sex is one of the games that the married can engage in at any time and almost everywhere.
“Game ya God inastahili kufanywa wakati wowote. Kama kuna kitu inatufanya tuwe kitu kimoja na pastor ni sex. Us we can have sex anywhere garini twa twa kitchen twa twa… everywhere!!” she added
Her sermon has sparked mixed reactions from Kenyans who are now curious to know where her church is located so that they may join her fellowship services.

Kenya Population and Housing Census fever is undoubtedly sweeping across the country barely 24 hours before the decennial exercise kicks off on the night of Saturday, August 24.
Social media is awash with video of a middle-aged man who apparently conducted his own population count in the streets of Nairobi on the morning of Friday, August 23.
The unidentified man was the centre of attraction in the city central business district where he commandeered matatus termini and did head count of each pedestrian and passenger.
Clad in black buttoned up coat and white soft khaki trouser, the fellow went about his unusual business regardless of the heavy human traffic and keen eyes of the bewildered onlookers.
“I don’t want anyone to distract me. Census has kicked off and please, allow to take head count,” he shouted.
Fiery Suba North MP Millie Odhiambo has come out guns blazing, issuing a nasty response to Sonko’s “ Millie tunajua unafanywa” remarks that the Governor made on Sunday morning.
Millie took to Facebook to give a straight forward answer, admitting to the governor’s claims.
“You said history never forgets so let me remind you that I have said before publicly that I love sex and I have sex.” Millie wrote.
The legislator wondered why Sonko would be concerned with how frequently she engages in the act or who she does it with to the level of taking such matters to the social media in an explosive post.
“Why should it be your headache who I have it with, how I have it or how often I have it. Such a knowledge my brother, can not help us deal with the cancer menace or joblessness in Kenya.” She added.
On his response, Nominated Senator Mwaura asked Gov Sonko; “Was the mother of Ken’s Son your mpango at your so called Sonko Rescue team so that when you got cucodold when she got a child with him, you decided to use his requiem mass to get back at him? So you also nominated her so that you can make up with her and slight Ken. What a shame!!!”
In an explosive post, Sonko revealed that male MCAs, Mps, Senators, Governors etc have a habit of having multiple sexual partners and extramarital affairs that sometimes result in babies only for the fathers to disappear, leaving behind single mothers and ‘fatherless’ children.
The number can also be used to report businessmen and civil servants who fail to accept responsibility and provide for their children.
In his post, Sonko gave the numbers 0722886600/0739555555, promising to expose the dead beat dads and compel them to DNA testing.
His initiative comes hot in the heels of the drama that was witnessed before the cremation of Kibra MP Ken Okoth.
Shortly after Okoth’s death, nominated MCA Anne Muthoni Thumbi emerged with a child named Jayden Okoth who she claimed is a son to the late MP.
Sonko laid bare details of the love affair between the late Kibra MP Ken Okoth and Nairobi Member of County Assembly Anne Muthoni Thumbi, who moved to court to stop the deceased legislator’s funeral.
