The Kingdom of Kush



Poet Namatsi Lukoye, Hiphop artists and Vocalists Renata and Luki the Monster are here with a show; in collaboration with makeup artist Jaybee the Mua and models from The Sekt.
With Venue sponsorship from Safaricom Michael Joseph Centre, the group have designed ‘the great forgotten Egyptian Kingdom of Kush’. With this, the visual artists have to curve our images of ancient Kush as well as design some futuristic fashion that goes with the theme. We want to dive deeper into creativity and pull out every fiber of art we can touch.
Why are we doing this; - last year our band felt a strong wind as we lost our lead guitarist/vocalist Cee L Nuke two weeks before a show. The whole year none of us was able to perform as we were dealing with the loss – but sometimes darkness gives us time to find light. Through catharsis we went into creation and have come up with a series of art work music that we would like to share with the world. We picked the title – The insignificant Few, because we realized that the world has preferences when it comes to art, the media only supports mainstream art – and most underground artists have to work twice harder. We want to show the world the power of underground. 
The show will also be blessed by acts from:- Tracy (Kiu Music), Zeshari, Ivy Namu, Lisya Music, Steve Munjal (Red Acapella), Amo Kamili and Tess.

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!

Naked

Moments... This is what the universe has decided to fill up my life with... Moments of what I could call love - and immense moments of pain -  as if to love the way I do is  a sin Now now Namatsi, please let go - the winds whisper as if they understand me Moments...
Pain... Trust me, this is a poem has escaped its prison It has broken chains, to see the light I never promised it I think my fingers have very big gaps -  when I think am holding so tight - it gets slippery and my stupid heart never reads the signs.... Dear Soul.... please let me not hold anything back when we talk about it Pain...
Dreams... Tell me - how do you love someone who is not kind to the soul? Why this person? what did they do to make you decide to hurt me like so? I wish I was casual with love as everyone else is. I have fought nations to hold you in my arms - all you did was smile and stab my back Tell me - why did you ever come back? My dear lovely heart - Break them all - leave nothing standing Dreams...

Angels Landing - for broken hearts

Poems like these come to me when I think about you Your eyes – they come when they meet mine Your lips – I feel  them when they curve in a smile  – for when they meet mine – I swear I travel to another planet - I don't know how to lie - trust this poem
Poems like are real – they are honest about the countless times you float my mind,  so I capture moments and freeze them in words - its just a gift you are the inspiration
As passionate as my poetry is – Poems like these hope that you have fire strong enough to hold them inside
Poems like these have been used They have had fights with false gods and demons too How you go read all I write for you and still treat them like its nothing! Don't you know that poems like these are fishhooked from the depths of my soul! Poems like these still come to me - they are nothing but angels landing
