Mimi ni mamba. Sifa za mamba na kenge wapo – Msanii Dudu Baya.
The song loosely translates to ‘I am a crocodile. The rest are lizards’ by Bad insect.
Not quite the same, is it?
[Of course if you grew up in my house, the dudu means something else entirely, which is equally lost in translation…]
The song goes on to describe the qualities of a ‘lizard’ as hating, beefing, refusing to buy rounds etc. It sounds so much less petty in Swa.
More on music. I have entirely forgotten what I intended to write.
Is anyone feeling Kanye’s Love Lockdown as much as I am? The boy is a genius. An idiot, but a genius. I have never been so irked to like a song!! Except of course for the Miss Independent track…I am annoyed no end that I like the instrumentals so much, coz the words are pure gameria…well, i don’t like them, let’s just say that and leave it. I so don’t like that boy.
Hmph. I have acquired an uneasening habit of disliking people with mad talent…Nzembi, perhaps you were right about that after all? **sheepish grin**
I’m going to bed. Good night!
Oh oh oh. Almost forgot. To anyone who gives a flying…sheep, the correct way to sing about ngingi = Addicted by Saving Abel. [Or alternately, Hot by Avril Lavigne.
The wrong way to sing about ngingi = any candy-man-lollipop-hip-hop-hoochie-type-video-thingie. Srsly. It is very possible to be sexy without being vulgar.
