I have had a couple of requests for something aside from rumba – a change of style if you will. So, tonight’s track is a favorite of many and has been re-released on a regular basis every five years or so since it was originally performed more than 25 years ago.
Yep, it is none other than Gabby Omollo & Omondi Jassor’s Lunch Time. I could be wrong but I think that the late Poxy Pressure did a take on this some time in the late 90′s that was very true to the original.
As always, a bonus ; this is Onyesha Mapenzi (Show your love).
Can anyone help me out and tell me who this is? I almost certain that this track is by the Maroon Commandos. It sounds like them, the style is them and the voice sounds just like Kifoto. Someone tell me that I am wrong.
+ The Nation’s stupid and misguided idea (yes, I DID write “stupid and misguided”) that I would pay even $10/month to read their rag for what they call “Premium Content” means that I have now switched to the East African Standard.
Sayonara people. Godspeed and good luck with this idea.
Why in the world would I pay you even a ndururu (Kenyan 5 cent piece) when I can get your content (AND the content of almost any other African paper) from an great aggregator like All Africa for pretty much the same amount.
+ In an attempt to catch up with the real world, I was reading the December 19th 2005 edition of BusinessWeek which had the mandatory end of year “Best of . . . ” articles and I came across a Maria Bartilomo interview of Bob Rubin who is now a thinker at CitiGroup.
She asks some very interesting questions on the world economy and the US deficit.I came away from this piece with the disconcerting feeling that no-one seems to realize that the huge engineering and scientific capacity that China and India are building will have a profound impact not just in the US but also in the rest of the world. We already out-source all our engineering to the US and Europe and manufacturing to China. When they take over engineering, it will be “Colonialism 2.0″.
+ In other news, an International Herald Tribune article documents an attempt by Paul Wolfowitz to link World Bank aid to press freedom and cites Kenya as an example.
Strictly for fun:
+ After losing the Death Star to rebels, Vader ended up working the day shift at the local supermarket – after he took some time off to write his memoirs.
But seriously, I hate seeing Vader mocked.
