Passerine bird at Lions Bluff Lodge/ Taita Hills in Kenya on 12th of October

The image of a small bird with black head, brown back and white belly was shot at the Lions Bluff Lodge in the Lumo Wildlife Sanctuary south of the Taita Hills in Mid October 2018.
Of course, first I was thinking of African Paradise-Flycatcher (Terpsiphone viridis) lacking the long tail. But the white belly? Scanning the image I'm not so sure anymore.
Thanks for ID to the experts
Cheers
Johannes
