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.

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:

TKK Toa Kitu Kikubwa

Corruption is arguably in the DNA of the Kenyan cultural fabric. The term TKK was coined as an acronym for bribery and corruption. It is my belief that erasing bribery will help in healing a nation whose values are quickly eroding.

The cry to stop corruption is not exclusive to the youth, even the old feel this way.

I must confess that I do not have a plan in place to stop this disease but I do know that the ending of corruption can begin if YOU decide to become intolerant of it.

Kenyan Thong.

  • There was a time when the Kenyan flag was only reserved for the flagpole. Now, the Kenyan flag can be seen on shirts, shorts, hats, and thongs (Ok, I haven’t seen a Kenyan flag thong but I bet you someones working on that. Ahem)
  • There was a time when Kenyan youth spoke solely and proudly in the queens English. Swahili and our tribal tongues were reserved for hoodlums as well as the uneducated.
  • There was a time when the old were certain that the youth would never be interested in their heritage. Now they scrach their heads when they see us sporting Field Marshal Dedan Kimathi tee shirts.

Times truly have changed. Kenyan youth all over the world (and believe me, we are ALL over the world) run around speaking Swahili, wearing shirts that either say “Kenya” or have the Kenyan flag on it. Some, including me even have been audacious enough to drop their Christian names and now are using their pagan….oops I mean, tribal names.

I am not a Sociologist, nor am I an Anthropologist so I will spare you a lecture as well as a treatise in regard to this massive shift to what I would like to call neo-nationalism. What I can say is that this change is a good thing!

Here is a challenge to my peers; Though we are outwardly proud of being African as well as Kenyan, we need to also be willing to make the extra step and resolve to be catalysts for change in a continent that has been exploited, raped, and pillaged by its own, as well as it’s invaders.

So here is my challenge, choose to either wear the Kenyan thong or speak out on Kenyan wrongs.

Genge.Wear’s Top 5 romantic genge songs.

NAMELESS – SINZIA. I think that it is a cheezy video, with cheezy words but many chicks would beg to differ, so here is Nameless singing the song sinzia.

HAKUNA MATATA – SWAHILI NATION Before akina Nonini coined the name genge, there was Swahili Nation. This song by SN was hot then and is still hot even now.

NALIA KWA FURAHA – BUSHOKE FT K-LYNN Apart from the sweet voices and obvious supuu singers this song just couldn’t be lengwad.

NAKUPENDA by MERCY MYRA I got into a debate with a buddy, she asked me, “Do you think she can sing?” My answer to that was, “It’s Mercy Myra! I don’t care if she can’t sing! She’s like the first lady of genge!

THE BUGZ – WEZERE

So, along came the bugz with the song WEZERE. Prior to this song I had no idea what Mawezere was. Apparently it is what my african american cousins would call a Badonkadonk.

What’s a Badonkadonk you ask? Well, according to the Urban Dictionary a Badonkadonk is an ‘ebonic’ expression for an extremely curvaceous female behind. Women who possess this feature usually have a small waist that violently explodes into round and juicy posterior (e.g., 34c, 24, 38).

The song Wezere is the bugz ode to the extremely curvaceous female behind. I think the video is well made, and could give some MTV videos compe. As far as the content, I leave it to you to decide.
