The Art of Music Foundation celebrated 10 years since inception with stellar performances headlined by Polish music composer, conductor and producer JIMEK (Radzimir Debski) and top Kenyan Orchestras.
The Foundation which was represented by the National Youth Orchestra of Kenya, Ghetto Classics and the Safaricom Youth Orchestra was also joined on stage by renowned Mexican pianist Jorge Viladoms. The celebration started with a Gala dinner on the evening of 30th November at the Trademark Hotel, followed by an open concert on the afternoon of 1st December at Amani Gardens in Karura Forest.
“10 years ago I would never have thought that we would come this far. We have had lots of challenges along the way, however, we have been able to overcome them due to the optimism of the 1,500 children under our guidance and care. We started with nothing more than faith and hope for a brighter future and the support we have received from donors, local and international musicians and the Safaricom International Jazz Festival has been priceless,” said Elizabeth Njoroge, Director, Art of Music Foundation.
JIMEK and Viladoms who have come to Kenya at different times for Safaricom International Jazz Festival have been collaborating with Art of Music Foundation by doing voluntary music classes with the children over the years.
“The Ghetto Classics music programme has been a beneficiary of the Safaricom International Jazz Festival since 2014 and has received KES 60 million, funds that have benefitted over 1,500 children from Nairobi and Mombasa.” Said Sylvia Mulinge, Chief Customer officer, Safaricom.
“Playing Hip Hop on classical instruments is something you have to practice for a long time before you get it right, which the orchestra does and it shows the kind of talent these young musicians have. I would like to congratulate Elizabeth and her team for work well done,” said JIMEK.
JIMEK was one of the headliners for the 2018 edition of Safaricom International Jazz Festival. He has worked on several projects with Ghetto Classics, among them, producing a song for Ghetto Classics member Cyndicate Kabei, titled Asante.
In addition, the Pole has donated KES 800,000 to cater for the needs of the children which was part of a cash prize he won at the Polish Film Academy Awards for best score to Sztuka Kochania/ Art of Loving in 2018.
Viladoms has been working closely with Ghetto Classics for four years and has committed to take 14 members of the music program to play alongside his students at the Youth Olympics in Lausanne, Switzerland in January 2020.
Dying of hair was considered feminine back in the methuselah ages but today men have redefined that and made it a trend among themselves.
Celebrities colour their hair as a form of identification and to also standout among the crowd.
Most of the celebrities have made it a signature trend among themselves.
Below are some of the men who have changed the norm:
Women love bad boys and this is something that has been a mystery to many. It is not clear on what attracts them to these types of men but it is obvious that’s what works for them.
Bad boys attract unwanted attention regardless of whether they are handsome or not, whether loaded or not women don’t seem to consider this with many wanting to experience some adventure with the said men.
Mary J Blige sang a song dedicated to the bad boys and here she says”Me and Mr wrong get along so good even though he breaks my heart so bad, we’ve got something special going on.”
Could this be the case for our Kenyan men?
Here are the types of men that women are attracted to.
1. Nduthi Guys
These kind of men mostly attract young girls who are either still in school or new in campus. They are liked and loathed in equal measures for their promiscuous nature .
They have mainly contributed to increased early pregnancies among teens something that has left a bitter mouth in the society.
The above behaviour has not deterred married women who are now having sexual escapes and illicit affairs with these forbidden lot.
2. Gym instructors
Every woman wants a fit man. No one likes an over sized guy who cant even pick up after himself thus gym instructors attract women. Women are mainly attracted to gym instructors for their physique which is mainly attractive but in most scenarios end up disappointed when it reaches between the sheets.
So the next time you hear your woman is are hiring a male gym instructor, be very worried as you might end up single and depressed in this cold weather.
3. Dread locked guys
There is something about guys with dreadlocks that women cant resist. Most of the men are eye candies with well toned bodies good for our instagram pages and showing off to our friends.
Unlike some men who are unkempt most dread locked guys are well kept, with the well maintained body comes a good performance between the sheets something that a woman can’t resist.
Most girls are attracted to bouncers not because they have much to offer but because of the chances they create. Who wouldn’t want free tickets, free performance entrances and a free sexual escapade.
5. Butchery guys
Ladies love butcher guys for the free meat packages extended to them and for the servicing that is not extended to them by their husbands or boyfriends .
When you see a woman laughing heartedly with the butcher guy. just know sio wote huendea nyama.

Which are you? The person who can comfortably sleep in a plane or those who can’t sleep at all and pull out a book to read till the end of your destination?
The former spring out of their seat upon arrival at their destination, fresh-faced, clear-eyed and ready to throw themselves into the ways of a new country and culture. But the latter happens to be one of these unfortunate souls, the start of any long-haul trip can quickly unravel as both sleep-deprived and jet-lagged. You’re barely able to function for at least 72 hours. Don’t fret, there are ways and means of securing a bit more shuteye.
Grab a row to your own self
Are you on that long-haul trip to a faraway country and the flight you in is half full? These are normally the best because after take off you can negotiate your way to the back of the plane. If this happens, ask a member of cabin crew as soon as possible if it’s OK for you to switch and bag yourself some extra legroom.
Top tip: once you’re lying comfortably, make sure you put on your seat belt so it’s visible over the blanket. There’s nothing worse than being woken up by a flight attendant during turbulence to check you’re belted up. Trust I know.
Though some airlines provide sleeping masks, I would encourage you to carry your own other than the satin masks they offer. The essence is to get a dark mask with a soft lining and raised edges to create a truly dark interior. You will be sleeping comfortably till you land.
Put in earplugs
Just like sleeping masks, the right plugs can be a gamechanger. Most people find it irritable by the sound of the engine or nagging crying babies in the plane. Find the right earplugs that fit your ears and you’ll be good to go.
Carry your own neck pillow
In the event that you have to sleep sitting up, those horseshoe looking neck pillows come in handy as your neck feels very comfortable and you avoid straining your neck.
Drink some alcohol
As much as booze may affect you at high altitude, It is advisable to take it in small doses in order to have a good sleep in the plane.

She rose to fame during Tusker Project Fame and after that collabo’s with singers such as former Israeli Ambassador to Kenya, Gillad. Since then she has been pretty low key. I sat down for an interview with the singer and sought to find out a few things about her that you might not know. read through;
1. She loves going out for desserts
We all have a sweet tooth, but Wendy admits hers can only be tamed by a good dessert. The singer confesses there are days she and the hubby just go to a hotel only to eat desserts which at times leaves waiters in awe.

As we all know there is no better place than being at home. Being in a far away country is a good experience for Wendy but it makes her miss Kenyan sausages and fries from a kibandaski.

It has been a pretty minute since we heard anything from the queen of Ugandan music, Juliana Kanyomozi. She is loved by many and revered for her mastery in music. She has caused quite the buzz online, this time not for her music but purely for her looks.

Brenda Kayiwa But they said your pregnant, is it true or it was just lugambo
Atiiku Shiraj Juliana, you are a musician and not a singer and because of that, your exposure is beyond hills and valleys. I don’t want to say anything about your riches and love life, this will be trampling on one’s life. I will not praise your beauty because it is obvious. My only appeal to you as a woman with influence is to help out the girl child. Many girls go out of school due to reasons that are avoidable: early marriage, rape, defilement , pads and many more. What are you doing about it? Lead all women artists to organise a concert and invite all women in leadership to raise funds for this unprivileged girls. Let no man get involved in this.
Musinguzi Gibson Juliana you are quite don’t become a legend please we are missing you in the industry you still have powers don’t let up coming to sit on you ,you were always the best
Hood Senteza Challenges makes you more responsible. Always remember that life without struggle is a life without success. Juliana the most beautiful smile is the one that struggles through tears.
