‘Nairobi’ Mayonde ft. Stonee Jiwe Video Review
I think if I bumped into Mayonde randomly in Town, she’d make my day instantly beautiful. I love the colourful outfits in her videos and her smile seems to light up the entire street. Her new song ‘Nairobi’ featuring Stonee Jiwe is an ode to the city, a song praising the uniqueness of our town.

Ma-Otero Animation Review
You know how we grew up watching Samurai Jack, Dexter’s Lab and the Power-puff Girls? We didn’t have any cartoons that we could relate to and the kids these days still don’t.

There is something that occurs to you once you find yourself in Marsabit town. The place is supposedly in the desert, yet it is surrounded by green forested hilly landscapes.
