This is a story about love, an 'interracial love' to be precise, the fear of losing a new-found love, the fear for one's own life, a belief in the super-natural world, death threats, going against the 'oracle' to pursue a love that you believe in, a hope for a shared future, the start of a family in light of the unborn child....all this encompassed in a musical atmosphere. This enchanting story written by 'Micha Hamel', performed by some of the most beautiful voices that I have ever heard &...

As we take a bow on 2017, I can’t help but feel grateful. Grateful to God for my life, health, family, talents, business, clients, friends (both old & new), you (my ever faithful readers) & last but not least, for my Blog (a sort of outlet for a passion that burns inside of me).

Remember when Sanaipei Tande (a Kenyan musician & Radio Host) was once featured on Pulse Magazine in a Slip dress at some Award Show, and everyone (me included) was like, ''Why on earth is she wearing a a nightdress out of the house?'' Well, now I've been forced to eat my words because here I am wearing a Slip dress from my new collection, not once, but in 5 different outfits.

Growing up in Kisumu (my Home City), we always had Open Air Cinemas in our neighbourhood where Films would be shown once a month (if i remember correctly). And my Mum categorically forbade usto ever attend them, claiming that lots of brawls occurred there and it was totally unsafe for us Kids. The only time we were ever allowed to attend them was during Easter when a 'Jesus Film' would be screened.
