Kenyans and Africans wake up- African Politics





Our president had been called to go to Hague for the trial of post elections violence after the 2007 elections.He went there but the International Criminals Court decided they will not try a sitting president.Our president Uhuru Kenyatta came home the next day.There were crowds of people waiting for him and celebrating his coming home.There were people dance on along the highway he used from the airport to his town office where there was also a huge crowd that he addressed.There were even school children in the crowd and it was on a normal school and working Thursday.This is shocking because what about the people who lost their lives and others everything they owned and plus their loved ones . It is about time Kenyans and Africans wake up for justice and truth and stop celebrating people who we are making rich,they work for us not the other way around, and we should stand up for people whose lives were destroyed because of greed and selfish ambition.
I would rather sleep or be idol than celebrate a suspect,we should get our priorities straight and stand for our justice so that people would learn if you kill people no matter who you are you will pay.If not they will be a repeat of people killing others only to get power.President Uhuru Kenyatta maybe be innocent or maybe guilt but people are giving the International Criminals Court such a hard time.They are just trying to do what our corrupt African countries can not do.And that is to fight for the poor and oppressed.They seem to be trying to help people who do not want to be helped.But like it or not they have a job to do and they will fight for the people who Kenyans and Africans refuse to stand up for and even fight for.We should let the International Criminals Court do its job in peace and if president Uhuru Kenyatta is innocent then they will prove that he is.And we should stand for the poor oppressed and voiceless just as you are standing up for your leaders.Africans go all out to stand up for their leaders but completely ignore themselves.

Dead beat Kenya-Parents neglecting their responsibilities







One would wonder what Dead beat Kenya is? Well it is a +Facebook page where Parents in Kenya who are not looking after the children the have brought into the world are named and shamed.It is a page exposing parents who have run away and neglected their children.Most of these parents are the males and so people look at it as an attack on men when simply it is not.It shows that men are the most in neglecting their parental responsibilities.I first heard of this page on radio then the same week on Friday there was a news feature on a local news on television.The page was almost a week old and had 67,000 people and during the news feature they even announced that the number of members are even going up.The man behind the page explained that he does a complete check up of the people being accused and the ones making the accusations before the accusations are posted on the wall of the page.He said he does cyber forensics and complete background checks on both parties.The man behind this page looks like a P.I. and so he know the law and what he is doing.Because all that he is doing has to be done within the law to avoid a law suit that would be successful.Some people fully support the page both men and women and others are against Dead beat Kenya and they are both men and women.
Some people say it is bad to air your dirty laundry in public and it is the women who are left with the shame.Well i do not think so because the man who has abandoned his responsibility is the one with dirty laundry.I have seen men who have been put up for multiple children and others have children with different women.It is like they have children everywhere.I did join the group and saw this for myself.I was even shocked, as soon as i was accepted to join Dead beat Kenya, i saw a guy that i knew and the story was he has a one year old daughter that he does not look after.And i know this guy has a good job and he is capable.In the group Dead beat Kenya no one is allowed to reveal the identity of the children or even post pictures of them.There are laws that protect children in such situations.There are some mums who are shamed at Dead beat Kenya but there are very few.It shows that many men have affairs and have children and others it is just relationships and get +Children and do not take up the responsibility of catering for the children.It is good that some women can step up and fight for their children because women have always taken all the shame and blame for accidental pregnancies its about time both parties take up equal responsibilities and women to stop taking up the role of victim and letting the men get away.In Dead beat Kenya all the men i came across look successful and wealthy it is heart breaking that they can not look after their kids.It sure is a dawn shame though the man behind Dead beat Kenya is being sued by a number of people atlist afew of the named for not taking up their responsibilities have started taking care of
their children.And the men who are on Dead beat Kenya mostly look like the love to drink because it is mentioned in most of the stories if not all of them.I think that Dead beat Kenya is a brilliant idea because their is a growing trend of parents who do not take up their responsibilities.What do you think of a facebook page like Dead beat Kenya? Dead Beat Kenya was taken down eventually because  many influential people were being named and shamed.

Sauti Sol African Afro-Pop Kenyan Male band -African Music

















  Sauti Sol is a Kenyan Afro-pop all male band.The band Sauti Sol was formed in 2005 as
an acapella group by Baraza,Chimano and Mudigi, who met in High School and did performances together in high school.Then they met guitarist
Otieno at the Alliance française in Nairobi, where they would frequent and
immediately wrote their first song,Mafunzo ya Dunia(Life lessons).They first named their band Sauti which is a swahili word that means voice.Then they added Sol which means sun in spanish.So the band name means voices of the sun and indeed their voices say it all.They all have amazing voices and their music is amazing.

All the four band members of Sauti Sol have attended different universities in Kenya.Which means they are scholars too.I first knew them when i saw their first music video of their song la zizi which means my love in English.And that is so far my favourite song even after the many songs that followed it.They have been nominated for many prestigious awards like Mtv African Awards,Chanel O Awards and many local awards.Most of their songs are in swahili language.They also use alittle english and lughya language.They do tour Africa,Europe and even the US.They are very well known and have done some collaborations with some big people in the music industry.They once lost an endorsement deal when they made a song called Nishike which means touch me or hold me.They released a steamy video to this song even all television stations in Kenya except one played the video.
But the video is played in other channels across Africa.Sauti sol lost the endorsement deal, the the endorsers said that they are pulling out because Sauti Sol is no longer family friendly because of the song Nishike(hold me) and the video to the song.I love Sauti Sol(voice from the sun) and can not wait to hear more from them.Sauti Sol say they get their music inspiration from musicians such as Fadhili William ,Daudi Kabaka,Salif Keita, Lokua Kanza and Fally Ipupa all from Africa and from British band Coldplay and American singer
Jason Mraz.Nowander their music is classic and never runs out of style.They also have a single called sura yako which means your face in English. This track is playful ,funny, romantic and very poetic. Sauti Sol is band that is going places.

Sauti Sols band members are:
Bien-Aimé Baraza – lead vocals,
guitar
Willis Austin Chimano – backing
vocals, saxophone, keytar
Delvin Savara Mudigi – backing
vocals, percussion, drums
Polycarp Otieno – guitar
Sauti Sols Studio albums are:
Mwanzo (2008)

Live and Die in Afrika (2014)
Extended plays
Sauti Sol (2012)
