Date with the devils – Part One

By Dennis Kioko The devil has not been happy with my life . I know that. In fact, in every attempt of trying to live a holy life, life without blemish. He interferes and pulls me down once again.

I guess he is in love with me. The genesis of our so called relationship started last year when our pastor migrated the

Film and Music industry in Kenya

I sat in front and watched the contestants sing, rap and perform spoken word. There was too much talent in the hall. Why should all this talent go unrecognized? Why should it go to waste?

She is the kind of parents who think that if their daughter comes to Nairobi, she will get into bad company or she will just get pregnant from the blues. You guys get what I mean. What she did not know is that hostel is a total
