pillars of namatsi

She gets up every morning
by God's will,
smiles at the first beautiful sight she sees,
the reflection in the mirror right across her room.


an african queen
a black beautiful woman.

Whether she dances at funerals,
cries in a style
or eats 'tsiswa' and 'omena'
she is filled with an overwhelming cultural pride.

Whether th sun shines or th rain pours:
she is glad to have the present of today.
She is amazed at her awesomeness

she loves herself most
her deathly sin would be pride.
This royal soul has no tolerance for anyone or anything that doesnt love and respect her throne.
She believes that pretenders are ur worst enemies.
She is quick to anger but quick to forgive.
She is a symbol of fire.
She is a lioness, yes that big cat,
she protects herself
she protects her own
she cares
she listens
she is patient
she has a soft spot for animals (except amphibians, especialy frogs!)
she adores nature.
Loves tourism.
She is a cook,
an artist (makes things),
a writer,
a designer,
a tailor,
a dancer,
a poet
Like a comodial dragon she moves with a great sense of purpose.
Has a because to every friendship.
She is well learned as well as well kept,
she is that kind of lady who cares about her image.
She is keen on the quality of people she attracts
and more attentive on the ones she puts in her heart.
she is a work in progress,
metamophorsizing when necessary
she was brought up this way
Blame her mentors
that is Namatsi

The loyalty Pledge (Kenya)

I pledge my loyalty to the President
and Nation of Kenya
My readiness and duty
to defend the flag of our Republic
My life, strength and service
in the task of nation building
In the living spirit embodied
in our National motto 'Harambee'

and perpetuated in the
Nyayo philosophy
of Peace, Love and Unity.

Thinking Moi’s dictatorship!
As children we had to make the pledge!
In our rags!
With no shoes on!
Bribed with milk (maziwa ya nyayo for staying so loyal)
We recited the words out loud
Religiously we recited at the school assembly
Attention we stood when recited or else we would face the wrath of the cane!

The Poet's Muse

Nayo iwe vipi Kunimaliza kwa macho tu Na ukinibusu… najishangaa tu Nimekua kama zuzu napepea tu Au labda kama mtoto nashindwa cha kufanya lo!
Nguvu gani jamani Si kawaida nashuku ni vela au voodoo  Labda ni uchawi ulibeba toka pwani Nawaogopa wanaokuja kama wewe - naogopa si mchezo! Iwe vipi nawa mchenge Mie pwagu iwe vipi nalemewa hivi
Macho yakikutana - yangu ya legea Natamani ardhi ifunguke nijifichie Najikaza najiwekea nanyamazia - Mwili nao msaliti - jamani, vile moyo wapiga Mwili wanisaliti - hata jinsi napumua Mwili wanisaliti - maji hayo nishakua
and when you touch me  Za! Twende sasa! Nipe yote kesho labda si yetu Cheza nami usiogope kitu Au labda tupande kwa majani tufike angani zetu Una nguvu ajab, nikipi chanisumbua 
Na wanimaliza huachi hata mfupa  - umeninasa hongera mvuvi Vidole kawa miguu, sasa basi tembea jua nchi Zama kisimani - palipo madini labda almasi Nawe kwa ujuzi - ule - mizizi hata mchuzi
Shanga kiunoni - nacho hakidanganyi Kilivyo jilegeza - upate pa kushikilia kilivyo jiachilia - upate…

'Be water my friend!' Luki - Luki the Monster

Take all the forms and shapes circumstances throw you in and rise above them all! Fit in bottles, sit in a glass, flow down a mountain, sip down  the soil - smile at it it and rise above as you join the clouds! Be water my friend as Bruce Lee said.
Art is the purest expression of life! It’s so vast and is always evolving!
For me it’s about being true to myself despite other people’s opinions and thoughts of how my life should be lived.  Art comes so honestly and purely, I don’t doubt its intentions. It makes me believe in my uniqueness and self-expression, and that we all should always strive to be the best version on ourselves. I mean, we only have one life to live, so we should live it to the fullest.       My art is a mix of many genres of music that have inspired me throughout my not so long existence.  With music, I feel that I can communicate more directly and precisely no matter the language as opposed to just having a conversation.  As a rapper, cyphers have given me the …
