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!

African’s Vs African-American’s

We all talk about each other. I for one am fascinated by how culture affects how we interact with each other. One thing that we African immigrants do is talk about a strange group of people called African Americans. It is no secret that there is some animosity between Africans and African Americans.

If I had the courage, I would walk up to an African American and ask the following questions on behalf of a minority of my continent mates;

  • So, what exactly do you want to call yourselves? Is it African-American, Ameri-Nubian, Black-American, Tanned American, Mzungu, Mzungu Mweusi?
  • I don’t understand why you say, “teef” instead of teeth, and “truuf” instead of truth. Is English really that hard?
  • I am yet to find and African American who flat out caims to have black/African in them. Most usually say “I am half Native-American” “I am half French” or even, “I ain’t from Africa!” They forget that to the other races they all are…..black.
  • Why do you have to be so loud and dramatic!
  • Why do you have to insist on naming your kids “African” names like DeAndre, DeJuan, DeShawn, JuMichael, Keyshawn, Latonya, LaShonda, Lashawn, T’Keyah, YaSheema, and Latrina.
  • What’s up with spending thousands on “pimping” an old car while you live on food stamps?
  • Why do you look down on those of you who speak proper English?
  • I think Chitterlings are just nasty, now that that’s off my chest, wanna eat some chicken feet?
  • Please, I beg of you, tell me more about Dr. Guion Stewart Bluford Jr, Blanche Kelso Bruce, Shirley Chisholm, Mae C. Jemison, and Rosa Parks. Whats that? You only know Rosa Parks? I thought so.
  • Stop blaming the white man for everything.
  • Just because I speak with an accent doesn’t mean that I think with an accent.

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.

genge wear: dare 2 dream

Dear friend,

What is your dream? Have you ever had a secret dream? What are you doing to make your dream come true?

My secret dream was to start a clothing line called “genge.wear”

What is genge? I am so glad you asked!

Genge is a musical genre from east Africa that incorporates hip- hop, reggae, dancehall, and local musical genres to create an afro-centric hypnotic beat. The music is sang in English, Sheng (slang), Swahili and other tribal languages.

The word genge has many meanings some of which are group, and rebel. Genge music is a vehicle that the East African youth have used to express their hopes, dreams, thoughts and frustrations.

Is genge.wear the beginning of a revolution? I hope so. My encouragement to you is; Dare 2 Dream!
