                        A stanza of one of ma poems: 
                                        Its in your arms I find comfort
                                        In your embrace I find love
                                        In your smile I find life
                                       Cant explain these
                                       Because with your words
                                     Glorious melodies do I heart
                                     That make me feel you near
                                    and want to squeeze you tighter
                                     and not think of the future,,…

Is Ray C an energizing drink?

energy

Tanzanian singer Ray C is going to be the new face of a Kenyan energy drink which will be launched soon. She revealed this during one of her performances’ am all for the EAC spirit but the question is, couldn’t the makers not find a Kenyan female singer to promote the Kenyan drink to a Kenyan market.(Hope they are getting the drift here).Tough luck for the energy drink company but good bargain for Ray C,she will be smiling all the way to the bank.

MUSIC TALENT IN KIMATHI
Wassup guys? It’s been disturbing me how Kimathi University has lacked ways in which it can nurture people’s talents. I know many people can sing, dance or involve themselves in different activities that concern arts especially music like deejaying.

We should take the initiative of coming up with ways in which we could improve on our talents. I personally would encourage people to come together, talk on ways we can change’ Kimathi music industry’ (hope it will come into existence soon).I know there is no single person who doesn’t like money, and through music there can be cash inflow and I have witnessed it. People come from scratch and have made it for themselves through music.

It’s time we took or stand and decided on what our future will be in our music industry not only in Kenya but also internationally. Let’s start with the little we can and I know we’ll go far with all our efforts put together.

Never lie to kidsNever lie to kids by Victor Tadoh Chege Oluoch

There was this guy sunbathing in the nude at the beach. Well, this little girl comes up to him, so he covers his private parts with a newspaper.

The little girl says, ‘What’s under there?’

So the man answers, ‘A bird.’

The girl goes away and the man falls asleep. When he wakes up, he is in a hospital and in great pain.

A doctor comes up to his bed and asks, ‘What happened?’

The man answers, ‘I don’t know. I was at the beach and I fell asleep after talking to a little girl.’

So the doctor tells this to the Police, and they go to the beach to find any witnesses.

When they get there, they saw the little girl the man was talking about. So they ask her if she did anything to the man.

She answers, ‘ I didn’t do anything to the man, but while he was sleeping, I played with his bird. After a while, it spit at me, so I broke its neck, burned its nest, and smashed all its eggs.

A message to Roy Hodgson. You poor, poor man by Victor Tadoh Chege Oluoch

‘I’m actually delighted that Liverpool have appointed Roy Hodgson, and I actually have a bit of advice for him. “Sell, sell, sell!!” I have been of the belief for quite a few months now that the only way that Liverpool are going to be able to rebuild a top 4 team without massive investment from a rich investor is to sell Torres and Gerrard’

‘I for one welcome this brave new era of players playing in position, as well as possibly improving at the club.’

‘I think he’s going to be a benign presence, an old wise head, like Del Bosque has been for Real and for Spain, who’ll get Liverpool playing decent football and instill some team spirit’

‘Mark Manning seems to think that England are just like Spurs. A top eight team that reaches quarter finals. Well, it was top four last season and a cup semi-final, but don’t let that ruin the comparison, will you’
