Genge This Week

Your Way.

Vinnie Banton has this romantic single out. He seems to suggest that the way to a woman’s heart is accepting her as she is, and having her do things her way. I doubt that this is will fly with most African men, but it certainly is what many women want to hear. Keep it up Banton, this ones a hit.


Willywhizz has this video online that in my own opinion is pedestrian. The artist has something to say, but he says it in no way that is different from what we have seen before. The production value of his video is basic. And the people in the video, especially the ladies don’t seem to want to be there.

“Hey!” by Just A Band

On a lighter note Just A Band’s “Hey!” has a video out that is entertaining as well as funny. I love the hand puppetry.

A Video I Made

A buddie of mine (called Elvo) and I decided to make a video based on a character he created. I know that laughter is the best medicine so I decided to share the video with you in the hopes that it will bring a smile to your face.

Just A Thought.

I just got done reading a book which really inspired me to stop kidding around and be a man. The book ends with a quote which I’d like to share with you.

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
– Harold Thurman Whitman

Missing My Baby by Amani

It is said that imitation is the greatest form of flattery so Dallas based Kenyan artist QStick decided to do a remix to Nonini’s hit “Si Lazima.”

This Week in Genge: Video Hits.

Thank you for dropping by. This blog is your one stop for the latest in genge music on the internetosphere.

Curious” by Bamboo

This Kenyan based artist and star of the film “Hip Hop Colony” has produced this catchy video. I am very impressed by his ingenuity and creativity. He has been able to make low budget music videos with high quality soundtracks. The R&B singer’s voice in this video somehow reminded me of the R&B artist Joe. Ama it’s just me?

Outsourcing Wombs and Websites.

This week on Oprah she had an show on people who decided to outsource wombs because they were not able to give birth to kids. I for one think that such a thing as this was inevitable given that we are becoming a global village, and that everybody now can just about outsource just about anything to any country.

So, what’s outsourcing anyway? My friend Webster defines it as; to procure (as some goods or services needed by a business or organization) under contract with an outside supplier

Before I say what I really think of this outsourcing womb business, I wanted to give you the reader, full disclosure:

I am in the process of having a website made through outsourcing that will enable people to pick out images of things in nature that look like letters, and put them together to form a word. Below is an example:
