I’ve been a loyal listener of the fuse for many years now. When I became a fan, Pinky Ghelani and Italia Masiero used to host the show. Up to date, I still love the segment of the show where they would make calls on behalf of desperate single people who wanted to be hooked up with their secret crushes. Y’ll remember that? And I sooo loved it when some of these people would express their surprise and would stubbornly insist that the identity ...

Beauty, Brains & Brooms (Part 2)

Posted on October 15, 2014

After our models had interacted with FCI staff and eaten a hearty breakfast, it was time to set off to Korogocho market. Accompanying the girls was a team of FCI staff comprised of the Communications crew. We drove off to the market via Thika Superhighway and within a short time, we were there. Like I previously mentioned, it was my first time at Korogocho (popularly known as Koch by the locals). On this day, Koch was busy as usual. The market ...

Beauty, Brains & Brooms. (Part 1)

Posted on October 10, 2014

A week ago today I was invited to witness first hand a major market clean up activity at the Korogocho market. What made this event unique was that part of the labor force doing the clean up work consisted of five beautiful lasses who are competing for the Miss Tourism Nairobi title. Now, every time you hear of beauty pageants, what comes into mind? A set of girls dolled up with tons of makeup and flashy outfits walking down a runway, right? Or ...

Pinky Ghelani

Posted on August 13, 2014

So the day was 25th December 2004. I vividly remember this day like it was yesterday. I was heading to Capital Fm studios as a guest co-host for Saturday Breakfast, the three hour morning rock show that airs every Saturday morning. Earlier that week I had called in to ask if it was okay to keep Pinky company in the studio...simply because I just loved radio to bits! Yes, my fervent ambition for radio started quite early, and so at the time I ...

Towards the end of last year I did a short feature on Anna Taylor..the fashion genius who's vision is to use her creative abilities and experience in the fashion industry to eradicate poverty among women in Nairobi, Kenya.

Patricia Kihoro

She's the singer and actress that we are all familiar with. Her's is a household name. She's graced our television screens enough times for us to notice her from ten miles away, quite effortlessly! Patricia, in her own words, has gradually distinguished herself as an emerging talent in various entertainment spheres. And who would disagree? Her work clearly speaks for herself. I had the good fortune of catching up with Patricia and she was glad ...

New Partnership of the year

Posted on January 24, 2014

Like most of my friends would know, I'm extremely passionate about film and video production. Last year was an amazing year for me because I got employed at AFMA Communications, a subsidiary of Farm Concern International. I consider this a blessing because I had no prior training in a communications course (I actually pursued Actuarial Science), and you can only imagine how elated I was when I was confirmed to be part of the AFMA Comm team. ...

Tweli’s new single: #Leggo

Posted on January 22, 2014

Not too far back in time, I shared the same school with Tweli. He however flew to Japan to pursue an engineering degree after his freshman year at Jomo Kenyatta University. He somewhat left without notice..and I was curious to know about his new life in the far far east. So I conducted an online interview and he sure did give us more insights about his life in the land where Sumo wrestlers eat a stew called Chankonabe to fatten up (Are you ...

Video of the week

Posted on November 26, 2013

Creativity has always been essential for our cultural growth, but there are still many misconceptions about this elusive process. Not the left-brain/right-brain binary that we've come to believe, being creative is considerably more complex, and requires a nuanced understanding of ourself and others. Being a powerful creative person involves letting go of preconceived notions of what an artist is, and discovering and inventing new processes ...

He’s Elijah York. He has a dream. Be part of it

Posted on November 23, 2013

I had stated some time back about seriously pursuing film making and video production. Along the way I've met guys with similar aspirations..and one of them is Elijah York. Elijah is 20 years old currently pursuing a major in accounting. But he stubbornly insists on his intentions of NOT being an accountant, but he's majoring in it so that he can have a movie producer's mindset when it comes to financing films.(hmm..ladies and gentlemen, we have ...
