We have previously addressed the issue of picking a name as an artist and the impact it has on your brand. You can catch up with that article here. When I heard of the name Shakila Bachnana, I almost cried. Honest to God when you hear that, what comes to mind? Does it not sound like a cartoon character that wears braces and is bullied in the playground? Continue reading

Mushy Mondays: ‘Alivyonipenda’ by Otile Brown & Kaka

Kaka and Otile

Being a grown woman admitting to having a talent crush is not wrong , I think. A talent crush is when someone has a talent and they exemplify it so well that it excites you every time you watch them. My talent crush is Otile Brown. He once performed at a club in town, I was very much tempted to go but my enochlophobia did not allow it. Continue reading

Mushy Mondays: Bonbon by Amani featuring Washington



Amani has a new song with a man by the name Washington. An official at Washington DC  must be thinking, here goes another African naming themselves after George Washington, but they also took Kenya (Kenya Moore) , Marsai (Marsai Martin from Black~ish) but who is counting. We have previously reviewed Amani’s song and to be honest every time I see her name in the content calendar , yes we have one, I worry. Amani dominated the 2000s and the wave of change keeps leaving her behind. Is this song better? No. It has a lingala twist to it, I guess we are ‘don wit naija’ so we have made our way to Congo. Note to all the Congo artists we are aggressive and we do not take no for an answer. We are going to come for collaborations and add French dictionaries to our library. Continue reading

Mushy Mondays: ‘Wafula’ by Alaine feat Churchill


So guess who is back to singing again, Churchill. The last time I saw him in a video was when he was doing  Mwikhulu by Rufftone. It is good to reminisce the old days. Of course now he looks polished and life seems to be better.This time he is on a hunt for one Wafula and guess who his partner in crime is , Alaine. It is now official that Alaine is Kenyan.She has been to this country so many times and one thing that continues to stand out is her humility and good aura.She is the perfect definition of a bundle of joy. Continue reading

Mushy Mondays: ‘Wewe Ndiye’ by Amileena &Calvo Mistari

Wewe Ndiye

In my life I have attended one wedding as a guest where you get your hair done and show up. The rest have been a job for me , either as a photographer or an usher. The thing is weddings can get very redundant and it takes good organizers to make it different. The song ‘ Wewe Ndiye’ (You are the one)  by Amileena and Calvo Mistari ( are they still a couple? ) tells the story of a wedding. An actual wedding. Continue reading

Mushy Mondays: ‘Wedding Ring’ by Nazizi



The horror of being left at the altar is traumatizing. This is why I think every bride should have a shot of tequila before heading out. It might also help with  the walk. Guess who was left  at the altar? Continue reading

How was Valentines? Did you get a rose or chocolate? Wine perhaps? Did you go to Kempinski or Java? Some of you were home right?
