Tusker Project Fail: “If Amileena Does Not Win…”

Hello Fellow Kenyans.

Since I first watched Tusker Project Fame 4 last week and penned a few innocent thoughts on this matter, I’ve received hate mail, death threats and what seems like an informal stripping of my African badge for saying that these contestants were not the best Eastern Africa had to offer. Apparently, round these parts, it is taboo to set the bar higher.

So what I’ve done, is I’ve taken all your collective advice and brought myself up to speed on TPF4. Yes, I subjected myself to the listening and watching and listening and watching. YouTube, Megavideo and even Citizen TV. Oh yes. Here at DR, we take your feedback seriously. So today, I come to you with an informed, less preachy point of view.

First, regarding my views/opinions last week Continue reading

Motion to ban the Wedding Show…

All in favour of the motion say Ayeeeeeeeeee

The scene is Black D’s, around the table are 2 of my boyz-we’re all sipping on ice cold Tuskers enjoying the late afternoon Westie breeze Black D’s is cool until around 9 when the sl*ts come in to look for old jungu men. We all have our excuses and alibis for our girlfriends so they won’t be bothering us tonight. In the middle of our conversation we are interrupted by the arrival of my boyz’ dates. Both are campus chicks. One was drop dead hot, she was like Halle Berry but with a**. The other one was er … well, let’s just say she had a nice personality.

It’s now a full house and the conversation moves from work to the constitutional review then the health care bill (now Act) before my boy Tony brings up marriage.

Insanity follows. The girls happily start narrating their dream weddings. The usual stuff “…me I want…then I want…then I want…” My boyz n I have heard it all before so our minds block out all the chatter as we get reacquainted with our beers and start guzzling them, plus happy hour is almost over so we need to order more pints quickly (keep in mind that these are proper Nai chips chicks so we all know they aint payin for sh*t all night: up to and including cab fare, kenchick or even those Westie mayayis). As the waiter brings the half-crate our attention returns to the ladies, Nice Personality swears that she can’t arrive at her wedding in a Benz on her wedding day. She goes: “I want a chariot, with six white horses just like the ones I saw on wedding show.”

“What the f!! Girl is you crazy”—(shucks, I said that out loud). But even that doesn’t stop her. She goes on to describe how she wanted a beach wedding or at the very least Windsor Hotel.
