Its Monday and back from the weekend ready to work with more zeal to build the Nation. In the process I have gone through my work and edited my Friday post which had errors (sorry about that).
That reminds me of a mama mboga friend (vegetable seller) who I met after a long time and was wondering where she had gone to. She was carrying some paper bags and informed me she now has a mtumba (second hand) shop, then she retreaved a VCD from one of the bags, showed it to me saying she is also producing gospel songs. I said that is very interesting, I could not believe it because her voice was one of those you would say is not meant for singing. I told her I would love to listen to her singing, she promised to bring a copy to my house to watch.
Like she promised she brought me the copy and left. We got down to watch it eagerly, but before the first song reached halfway we were already wondering who produced the CD, couldnt they have adviced her on how to dance (being very plump and trying to jump in an awkward manner). Shouldn't she have worked on her vocals first. Most of the time she sounded like going off key and out of breath.
We then sympathized with her and said, this is her first time to produce and is not a good singer. The other issue is she may have used jua kali (amateur) producers who were only interested in making money. May be she would do better next time.
This could also be a case of hard working citizens, a mama mboga venturing in new markets. Amatuer producers helping people like mama mboga's and mitumba sellers producing songs to make more income.
We have been adviced to work hard. If you don't work hard you will not get the benefits of a growing economy.
