This may surprise you or it may not. It all depends on who you are and what kind of life you live. Wema Sepetu knows how to make headlines. It’s all for good reasons and well…some not so good. However, as it turns out, she doesn’t make all the headlines or at least she doesn’t want to. Some headlines are made on her behalf. For some of you who  remember the accusations that Wema used to leak her own private photos to the media for publicity stunts, the league could be different.

If the self-leaked photos was true, it seems she has had enough of it. Chumvi imekolezwa kupita kiasi. Mboga hailiki. She isn’t happy. She is pissed. As a proof, she recently stormed at Global Publisherz offices to confront a reporter/journalist who had written something malicious about her. Here is the video captured by one of Global Publisherz staff.

Tangu tukiwa watoto tumekukuwa tukisisitiziwa suala la uvumilivu. Wenzetu wa magharibini wanasema Patience.Naam,vumilia kila aina ya majaribu utakayokutana nayo hapa duniani. Ni mengi.Jua linapochomoza yapo.Jua linapozama yapo.

Lakini kama kuna ambalo linahitaji uvumilivu zaidi basi ni suala la mapenzi.Unahitaji zaidi ya uvumilivu.Unahitaji imani.Unahitaji akili na uweza wa tofauti kidogo.Ni changamoto ngumu zaidi.

Huu hapa ni wimbo wenye maudhui hayo hapo juu.Unaitwa Vumilia. Ni kutoka kwa John Rodgers,Shilah na Davizo.Wote hawa ni kutoka jijini Arusha.Kuleee kwa machaliii.

Kipi Sijasikia 1

Siku moja niliwahi kuketi kitako na rafiki yangu fulani tukijadili safari ya ubinadamu. Ni mambo gani mtu hupitia mpaka kufikisha umri japo wa miongo minne tu hapa duniani? Nakumbuka tulijadili mpaka jua lilipokuwa linazama kuashiria kwamba kiza kinaelekea kutanda na kuanza kuikaribisha siku mpya. Jambo moja lililokuwa wazi katika mjadala ule na rafiki yangu ni kwamba binadamu hupitia mengi. Ndio maana unaambiwa kila mtu anayo simulizi ya kuvutia. Kinachotutofautisha ni kwamba wengine wanajua kuhadithia kuliko wengine. Ndio maana kuna vitabu,muziki, filamu nk.

Miongoni mwa mapito ya binadamu ni pamoja na kusemwa sana. Upende usipende,utasemwa. Kama sio jirani yako basi ni yule jamaa anayejiita “rafiki yako”.Ukiwa maarufu ndio kabisaaa. Kila unalolifanya ni mali ya midomo ya watu. Na katika zama hizi ambapo mtu anaweza tu kujipa jina na kuifanya computer au simu yake kuwa “ngao”,basi ni vyema tu kutambua kwamba wanaopenda kuongea wamewezeshwa zaidi.

Professor Jay ni mwanamuziki nguli. Ni mkongwe katika sanaa ya burudani nchini Tanzania. Ni maarufu.Haishangazi basi kuona kwamba ashasemwa sana. Ungedhani katika kusemwa yapo ambayo hajayasikia.La! Anasema yote anayasikia ila anaamua tu kusonga mbele. Pengine hilo ndilo la msingi na ambalo sote[maarufu na wenzangu na mie] tunapaswa kufanya.Ukisemwa na kusikia,sikiliza.Songa mbele.

Huu hapa ni wimbo mpya kutoka kwa Professor Jay akimshirikisha Diamond Platinumz.Unaitwa Kipi Sijasikia. Ni production ya Bongo Records chini ya P-Funk Majani.

What is a Slam Poem? You may be wondering especially if poem ain’t your thing. I have always loved poetry. In high school I excelled in poetry. It was my secret little weapon of “getting back” to anyone.

That part of me aside, here is actor Samuel L.Jackson performing a slam poem about “Boy Meets World” on The Tonight Show last night. It’s a 3 minute long performance about Topanga, Cory, and the gang. Watch
