Show me a sign or just point me towards the direct line,
Because through you I know I’ll shine & together we shall dine.
A celebration of what you’ve made mine for with you through the entire struggle I believe I can.
Courage, will power and strength to face my challenges like King David,
Live long, healthy & happy like Old Methuselah,
In everything that I set my hands upon may it be a golden touch of King Midas,
Innovative, creative and persistent like Ancient China,
Open my eyes so I can see the beauty beyond the horizon.
Season after season of oblivion be filled with abundant optimistic reasons.
Reasons to hold on despite challenges for we filled with passion,
Reasons to push on despite draw-backs for you know my green zones,
Reasons to look up to you despite earthly pleasures comforting with a shoulder to lean on.
I might not be a huge human being but deep within me am a giant warrior, strongly built to fight your battles in a modern unique way.
May the knowledge, encouragement, wisdom and information you share through me be a word of Hope to many like and unlike me.
May your presence and resourceful nature be felt through I your servant across the whole universe.
May your creative, inspirational and innovative experience be far spread to the tips of my little but humble hands and fingers Oh God and let the world feel and enjoy your touch.
May my name, to which you granted, be a reminder to my fellow man that you truly exist and are ever present.
May all the actions I do symbolize your blessings not only as the Hero but the Legend who lives in and through me.
SO HELP ME GOD.
‘Malaika Fest’ Set to become a Kenyan Brand?
The residents of Rong’e Juu Location and Taita Taveta County in general
are bracing themselves for a major ‘Mwazindika dance’ and a heartfelt
rendition of Fadhili William ballads come Saturday, May 25th, 2013 to
mark the late music icon’s 12th Anniversary since his demise.
Fadhili William, to whom the Kenyan ‘Malaika Festival’ is a tribute, is
the acclaimed author-composer of the World-famous song ‘Malaika’ whose
original composition the late South African songstress Miriam Makeba
erroneously and, unfortunately, attributed to a Tanzanian. Other
Artistes, like Benin’s Angelique Kidjo, also, have unwittingly repeated
Makeba’s original ‘sin’. Starting with ‘Ukifika Taita’-arguably Fadhili’s
most evergreen Kiswahili song in praise of Taita Hills and their lush
pastures that is gradually becoming one of the Festival’s signature tunes
besides ‘Malaika’, the fete promises to deliver aesthetic, sound and
culinary tastes that have so far characterized the growing Malaika
In February 2011, although curious revelers at the Grand event were
initially at pains to comprehend the real meaning of the unfolding
cultural event being held in Rong’e Juu, Taita Taveta County after a
seven-year hiatus since its last performance in Nairobi City, the sheer
sound of ‘Malaika’ the song and the unmistakable voice of the late
Fadhili William, served to re-kindle old memories of the departed
songster who caused ripples in Kenya, East Africa and beyond from the late
50s to the mid-seventies. But, the presence of ‘banana chapatis’, Kimanga,
Kipunde, Mkango, the local Taita brew ‘M’bangara’ and ‘Mwasina’ and, the
eminent ‘Mwazindika’ Drums and ‘Kishawi’ dances all went a long way to
convince the patrons of the sustained blend of Fadhili William’s legacy
and faltering Taita cultural practices which serve as a reminder not
only of Fadhili William’s rich music legacy but, also, of his deep
Strangely though, at first, some local Christians had thought of
‘Malaika Fest’ as a form of the long-forgotten ”ancestor worship’
among the Taita, before they could safely conclude that the event was no
more than a pure celebration of the life and music times of their own
departed son, whose remains they wished they had interred in his Rong’e
ancestral home, instead of far away in Nairobi’s Cosmopolitan Kariokor
Fadhili William had grown up and settled in the Eastland’s side of
Nairobi, before moving to the United States of America in 1983, where he
was to remain for thirteen years.In his younger days, the late Fadhili
composed lyrics and sang in his Taita language, besides Kiswahili and
English. ‘Niko Kireti’, ‘Ngamba Niagesha Wasi’, and ‘Munilaguye Saru’ for
instance, are some of his Taita songs whose rendition caused even aging
nostalgic female fans to gyrate and sweat out at the height of the last
event which is gradually gaining local acceptance and, fanatics. Last
year’s event attracted a huge crowd, both young and old, with host School
Mwanyambo Secondary School students leading the way through their
scintillating drama, songs and dancing styles performed in their
multi-colored School uniforms. To cap it all, even aspiring politicians,
including Taita Taveta Governor aspirant Engineer John Mtuta Mruttu,
Women Representatives Joyce Wanjala Lay and Anna Nyambu, got pulled
away from another social event held nearby, to throbbing Malaika Festival
sounds and Mwazindika Drums.
In the unfolding ‘branding’ of Malaika Festival, Kenyan style, whose
Fadhili William image is, singularly, its most conspicuous mark besides
the red, cream and pink colors associated with the late musician, the
sounds, traditional foods, dances and surrounding scenic beauty of the
Taita Hills closely resembling the Swiss Alps, all combine to create
what is fast becoming the Kenyan ‘Malaika Fest’ brand promise with all
“It is not complete without first slaughtering a Bull for us to feast
on!”, says an old Fadhili William fan during the climax of last year’s
festivity. Although he alone openly voiced his concern, this apparently,
was the general feeling of most fans of the celebratory occasion. “This
will be in keeping with the old customs of remembering our departed
souls!”, added Mzee Silvano Nyambu, a retired police officer from Rong’e
Juu who also plays the Mwazindika Drums as a pastime. But, will this too,
become a future expectation?
As a pointer of better things to come, the Organising Team of the
forthcoming Third edition of the County Festival has given notice, through
the aptly-framed theme of ‘Promoting Peace & National Cohesion through
Music”, of the full Kenyan brand potential comprised in appealing
patriotic songs like ‘Kenya Nchi Yangu’ and ”Harambe Harambe’ in which
Fadhili contributed both lyrics and guitar works, and dances by various
groups from across the cosmopolitan Taita Taveta County representing “the
face of Kenya”, spiced, of course, by the everlasting ‘Malaika’ song,
if the Festival Team’s appeal to local Corporate sponsors including
Kenya Commercial Bank, Silent Guest Resort and Wildlife Works, bears more
Needless to say, however, guarantees of peace and security, besides the
availability of traditional Taita foods, drinks, and Mwazindika Drums
and Taveta Uruasi dances and foods, as well as, possibly, other Kenyan
sounds, will be uppermost as “givens” or “cravings in the minds of
tourists, both foreign and local expected at the Fete, which was
initially held in Nairobi but subsequently “devolved” to Taita Taveta
County three years ago where it is set to be anchored in more fertile
ground. Ironically, although the event’s devolution to Taita Taveta
County was aimed at boosting the County’s potentially rich cultural
profile, it may very well, fortuitously, become a ‘Kenyan Brand’ whose
popular ‘malaika.co.ke’ website domain already reflects its future trend.
Voi City, Saturday, January 12, 2013
Ewaah! Nimeambiwa na sasa napata kuelewa kwamba ya Mungu ni mengi na ya kuku ni mayai. Jamaa flani mtaani juzi ametokea sehemu za bara kwao na jogoo mkononi. Kilichotoka kinywani mwake ni kwamba, “huyu jogoo wangu ni wa mbegu peke yake. Ntahakikisha kwamba nimepata wengine kama yeye ndio nimle nyama.” Sisi majirani tulibaki kujionea tu. Yule Chakibanga(Mhusika mkuu) usiku wa kwanza aliota ndoto moja ya maajabu sana. Aliota kwamba yule jogoo anamfukuza kama kikuku kike na kumpanda kana kwamba wanajamiiana. Ebo! mbona mwenzangu akaamka na jasho limemjaa mwilini kama amekutana na simba?

Mashuka Ole Makaptula ndio jina la Kijana fulani wa Kimaasai. Kwao ni kuleee Mphejeto, “kule jua nakuja mafuriko furifuri kama Alasika”, kama anavyojieleza yeye. Mashuka katika umri wake wa ujana ako na mengi ya kujionea kwa ulimwengu wa sasa.Basi siku moja ameenda kutembea jijini Nairobi na katika ile pilkapilka ya kujioneaonea ‘Uptown’ macho yake yakaangukia kuku kwenye kabati za maduka ya vyakula vya haraka. “Shie! Kwani watu ya mujini naanika ndege kwa kabati uchi.”

Action is a great restorer and builder of confidence. Inaction is not only the result, but the cause, of fear. Perhaps the action you take will be successful; perhaps different action or adjustments will have to follow. But any action is better than no action at all. Nor man Vincent Peale
