TnT is a Kenyan rap duo that consists of the hell spitting Timmy Blanco and the hook swinging Twenny Eights. They are carrying the hiphop torch to Olympic standards and if any of their recent projects is anything to go by the Trap is strong with these folks.

Over the centuries art has evolved from complexity to simplicity to downright nonsense(depending on who you speak to). However, today’s feature is an artist who dabbles in a very unexplored territory in the artmosphere…koff koff. Most of you know it as doodling. Calm thy crawlers before you start lynching me. In this case I am not referring to those mundane sketches you do when bored but a more complex form of it but it still retains it’s simplicity.

havHike with Terra is an event organised by Terra Model management. The intention is to bring people together in a natural environment and indulge with fun filled activities. This is all in an effort to curb anxiety from all generations about venturing and exploring the outdoors.
The first edition was sponsored by city walk and it took place at Butterfly Pavilion in Mombasa and it was epic. In case you missed it, fear not for here is a recap of what went down.
Kenyan hiphop has been for a while been downplayed and graced with controversy from one reason to the next.
However, in the recent past the current generation has in one way or another tried to push away this perception. From their branding, performances and even presentation.
Last year, at the bomblast memorial concert held at memorial park, I happened to be a witness to this new age development and I was amazed. The artist in question this time happened to be none other than Jemedari. Continue reading Presenting| Mr. Jemedari
Egg Curry Stew
A fresh, light, rice recipe perfect for a late dinner.
The razor slips,no turning back
Sitting back on the toiletseat,breathing hard,trying to numb the pain,
Gushing down her wrist
