Born in rural Kenya, music was my first love - and we are still together! When it comes to music, I have my biases - just like any other man before or and after. And these are my biases,
'JULEE MWANAMBOKA NGAI NABOI BAZELE MABE!'
I grew up listenning to heavy weight guitor wizards such as Francois Luambo Lwanzo Makiadi et son Tout Pouissant Orchestre de Kinois jazz. I would how ever like to salute the following artist for carving my impecable taste; Le grande Mopao Antoine Koffi Olomide of Quartier Latin, King Kester Emeneya of Victoria Eleyson, JB Mpiana and Werrason Ngiama of Wenge Musica. I would also like to thank Le seigneur Pascal Tabu Ley aka Rochereau, for convincing me to post-pone my obituaries on Soukous. Le Seigneur told me that Soukous has just ressurected and will very soon swipe the world of music like desert storm! Seigneur could be right, but we wait to see...
