(*Insert Jefferson's Theme tune here*)

Hey Y'all!

I am moving to a new home. Putting some finishing touches to it and as of next week, I will no longer be putting any entries on Blogger.

You can adjust your links to my new boma now, but new entries will be made from the 1st of May. All entries made in Blogger will remain here as they are a pain to import and catalogue. Besides, new diggs, new entries.

May is my month, I was born in May and I share the same month with my bro. Since this year I won't be getting any presents for myself, as I do every year, I thought a virtual one would do (ok, I'm broke this time round). Hence, my new blog.

So heres:

Thanks to all who have supported me and touched base. See you on the other side.

Thank you Blogger for the experience, I am still enjoying myself.

To my now old home.....I will miss you, but I will be back for the entry references.

Well folks................*sigh*

p.s. Dj Mocha blog still remains - a link to it will be added on my new blogsite.

Walapaz wasee wa kublogu! LOL!

That was cheesy!

Anywhoo....I hope y'all are cool. I have been busy with my final exam on my Graphics Design Course.....I just hope I pita.

Now, with inspiration for meet-ups in Nairobi and elsewhere (please check Shiroh's and Kenya Musings' blogs for details), I would like to propose one for the UK. Since we have Rugby Sevens in June 3/4 weekend and an after-party at Twilight Night Club in London.....this could be the perfect opportunity to liase, ama?

If you are up for me and I can try an organise a KBW Meet-Up UK Edition.

Otherwise, have a nice day y'all.

Q & A with Moch@!

Well folks, a while back I was experiencing Bloggers Block and gave you the opportunity to ask me questions about ME - The 'Licious! I must say, the questions are very interesting and I do hope my answers are up to scratch with what you wanted to know. So without much further ado...............

Milonare (OK......this question was posed by someone pretending to be Milo)

Tell us about the first time that you had sex!Details!

  • Well, I won't give details coz that is kinda personal info that may be used against me in the future, but I will say this......It was painful and messy. I was tipsy at the time of the event and yet I remember the details, but I won't share.

What inspired you to be a dj?

  • My inspiration came from watching Dj Edu (BBC 1Xtra - DNA) play and the craft itself. I love listening to music especially mixtapes and I always wanted to know how it was done - the beat mixing, the scratching, etc. Besides, my motivation was the lack of Kenyan chics who could spin. Of course there was Sugar and Honey (I think that is what they were called) back in the day headed by Dj Pinye. The Carni's resident chic Dj (forgotten her name) and Dj Mo' of the Homeboyz. So, I have been teaching myself while picking up tips from other Djs when I can. It is hard and a long journey....but my goal is to headline a gig before I hang up my headphones.


For how long have you been in the UK?

  • More or less 7 years and no, I haven't got the accent. Blame it on hanging around Kenyans alot.

What makes you want to be a DJ Mocha?

  • (See Above - Spicebear asked similar question)

How is Mr. Mocha, why don't you talk about him here?

  • Well, Mr. Mocha is no more since 2nd Jan. 2006. That is why I don't speak of him here.

What is your weakest point?

  • Gosh, that is a good question. I actually can't pin-point one or two, coz I believe that I have several. I guess for now I will have to say my naivety.

How do you spend your day?

  • Quite honesty in bed - dozing off, watching telly, listening to music, reading a book or doing puzzles - with the occassional toilet and kitchen break. If it is out of the house and the weather is good, shopping, walk in the park, a movie or clubbing.

Your blog crush?

  • Of all the blogs that I have read, to be honest I would have to say Acolyte. Maybe its the celebacy challenge thing, I dunno!

KenyaMusings (Bloggers Block Question)

Er, what do you feel about world peace? Or the lack of it?

  • Will world peace ever be achieved? It is sad that the people who it affects the most are the children - the future generation - as they will eventually grow up into the lack of it (world peace that is) and go either way. I guess, it also kinda shapes our society and how we look at things in the yesterday, today and tomorrow perspective.

Brother Jero a.k.a. BJ

Is that your real foot, Mocha? Mmh.

  • Yes, it is.

What's your greatest turn on & off in a man?

  • My greatest turn-on in a man has to be his intelligence and good sense of humuor
  • My greatest turn-off has to be his lack of respect for women. If he treats his mother with disrespect......guess what, you aint different.

Stunuh Jay

It's a cheecky weekend. Guy walks into the room, within the first few minutes it's a nay or yeah! What's the deciding factor?

  • Nay - If he walks in with the attitude around him (his aura) that he is gonna score tonight. The Mr. Machoman ATT is a big no-no!
  • Yeah - If he walks in with a great aura around him. The kind of jamaa who looks for a nice place to perch himself and his boyz rather than a mami he will be aiming for. It makes you wanna know more about him. Good looks, intelligence and GSH are an added bonus.


Worst line you ever heard?

  • How tall are you?

Worst line you ever fell for?

  • Do you come here often?

I have to throw a Deejay question in here. Best track to get the party going? (in the UK)

  • LL Cool J - Doin' It


Yes time heals all wounds but if you have any past experiences how long does it take to heal a broken heart?

  • Like you said girl.......past experiences. It takes time and all of them differ in duration. With time, I have just learnt to deal with them, learn from them and move on. Life is too short, I don't want to spend most of my time in misery over a broken heart. Happy thoughts is my medicine to mend a broken heart. Makes me look forward to what lies ahead.

Ms K

Did your parent give you a hard time about becoming a Dee Jay?

  • I was very vague when I told my mum about my 'musical hobby'. Since it started away from home, I guess I haven't had the chance to see or experience any of that. I will let you know when I have explained to her face to face.

Have you ever 'spun' in a Kenyan club?

  • Nope, but I hope to one day. Just look out for my name MOCHA! Actually, I tell a lie if I read your question vizuri. I have played in a Kenyan club in the I supposed, one in Kenya is my goal.

What is your story? As in if you were a book, what would your blurb say?

  • I would talk about how I grew up, my mum and bro, my friends and life in Kenya and the UK. The usual day to day stuff. I don't think I would sell lots of copies at first.....then again, you never know.


Have you met any music celebz?

  • Yes I have actually. I have met Victor Seii (of 5 Alive), Gidi & Maji and Didge. In the pipeline are Wawesh and Kaysha.

If so, who is your favourite?

  • So far, Didge. He was polite and not what I expected.

Well folks, there you have it. Your questions answered. If you wanna know more and make a Part Deux of this know what to do. 'Twas fun!

Have a nice day y'all!

Aki mine was.....aaaiiiii!

Bummed the whole of Friday!

Sato, woke up early to go to Church, then later on.....attempted to gather research for my exam. In the evening went out to a gig happening in Luton Town(behind the airport) was an good one. I played kidogo before the crowds checked in vizuri. Met Didge (Kenyan musician) and Mr Josiah (thats Tedd Josiah for y'all who are anti-radar). Let's just say, video and pictures don't do people justice. Had to leave early (3am) because my ride wanted to bounce mapema *bummer :( * Enjoyed myself though, but I wish I stayed 'til the end.

Sunday was woken up by one of my pals who attended the gig in Luton telling me how I hatad drama that happened after I left the place - TYPICAL! Ati someone I jua got on the mic and started semaing for the jamaaz to grab 'their bitches' and get on the dance floor. Waaaa....she wasn't impressed. Later on.....another phone call to tell me about more drama...kumbe it is to touch on the same drama. It felt like I didn't attend the gig at all. Let's just say that the thing of talking 'slang' or should I say 'American slang' especially the hoo-haa of calling peeps 'bitches' and 'niggas' I don't get. Bottomline is, as much as it may sound cool, it aint! PERIOD. Sawa, 'When in Rome, do as the Romans do, but make sure you are in the right Rome or you are saying it to the correct Romans'.

Monday was spent all day in bed.........Auntie Flo' came to visit and let's just say she was a nag the whole damn day!

Have a timam day y'all. Missed blogging and glad to be back!

P.S. Happy B-Lated Birthday Wish to Acolyte - I hope you had a good day jana!

P.P.S. 7A........when do we expect some content on your blog?

# 1 - CRAZY

I predicted it here and for sure, it became No. 1. The first single to hit the number 1 spot on downloads and not CD sales - only if it to be released the following week. And, it is still number one.

Yep, Gnarls Berkley's - Crazy is Numero Uno in the UK.


Now back to Question Time with Mocha! See below!

Donnerstag, April 06, 2006


Well, I think I am having that feeling of writers block. In this case, bloggers block. I have a lot to write about yet, I don't know how to go about it or quite frankly, type.

So, in the footsteps of M - here and here - I am looking for inspiration through questions.

What do you wanna know about The 'Licious?

I will try and answer all your questions. So feel free to ask me whatever you want. There are no limits.

N/B: Final day to ask the questions will be on the 13th of April, 2006. Publishing to follow.

Edited:7/4/06 - Thanks Spicebear!

Mittwoch, April 05, 2006


I have reached that point in my life - I am starting to brood. As much as I tell myself and others that I don't want children until I am ready to have them and/or ready for the responsibility, I still can't help having the feeling of the love you would give a child, your own child.

A perfect example, the other day, my friends' son was coming up the stairs and he tripped and fell with his head first as he reached the bottom of the landing. I nearly broke my own legs whilst rushing to pick him up from the bottom of the steps. I was horrified and shaking as if he was my own and I think he sensed this as I comforted him. Thank God he was alright, just shocked at the attention he received after his fall. The smile I got after all the fuss was Priceless.

Anyway, back to why I am writing this post today. Yesterday, as I prepared to retire, I switched on the telly and whilst browsing the channels, one programme caught my attention. BBC Two was showing a documentary called Witch Child. I wasn't prepared for what I was about to see. Let's just say, I had a box of tissues close to me and a pillow. It was like watching a horror movie. Here is the programme description:

"In the last five years, Britain has witnessed a disturbing new crime. Young children are being abused, and even murdered, by parents and relatives in the belief that they are possessed by evil spirits. This film follows Dr Richard Hoskins, a specialist in African religions, as he investigates the background to this phenomenon, and travels to Africa in search of a young London child who has been sent back to the Congo and comes face to face with the horrifying realities of exorcism in the 21st Century. This programme contains some scenes that some viewers may find upsetting."
Source: BBC Website

I was shocked at how pastors in churches are using Christianity to make money through children. Fine, we have the ones back home who 'beg' in the streets aka 'Street Preachers', but after watching this programme, the ones back home seemed harmless. Here children are kicked out of home because their parents claim they have evil spirits in them. Something they called 'kindoki'. At one point, they are made to fast for one week. Fasting included, no water, food or even general hygiene. They are then exorcised of the evil spirits. Relatives of the children take them to these so called 'healers' and pay them to have the children exorcised. Each child has a different level of being 'evil', so the price of the exorcism varies. Making it big business in the DRC.

The part that made me reach for my pillow was when the children were made to lay on the ground. The 'healer' then proceeds to stump his foot on the child's stomach area several times. After this, he kneels before the child (child between his thighs) and proceeds to massage the stomach vigorously and then with a razor blade, he makes three cuts on the child's stomach - close to the navel. These cuts are deep enough to draw blood. The 'healer' then continues to massage the area he has just cut until he is satisfied that the said evil spirit has departed the child. On one child, the healer massaged so much that something bloody popped out of the child. It was so disgusting. The children are not allowed to show pain or emotion, as this will indicate that they have the evil spirit in them. Instead they chant/pray that the evil spirit should leave them while the exorcism is performed on them.

This documentary is in relation to a child here in the UK who was abused by her relatives because they believed she was possessed. This story here and here just shows how widespread the problem is. And the victim is, that innocent child who has been brain-washed into believing that they are possessed, because I believe the parents should know better.

At what point does the parent realise that the child is possessed? I don't get it.

The saying: "Asiyejua uchungu wa mwanawe....." (One who doesn't know the pain of a child...) - (I think that is how it goes), seems to have lost its meaning in this case of children being molested, abused and tortured in the name of Christianity.

How far does our cultural beliefs determine what is right or wrong inconjuction with Christianity?

I was really shocked and saddened that this is happening to our children. The future generation of the country.

And what are the leaders doing about it?

In the irony of it all, I pray that God is with them - ALWAYS!

Marc Nelson - Chocolate Mood Album Cover

They say the blacker the berry the sweeter the juice
(I'm be a twix that's in disguise)
I'll oil my body just for you
(baby my nature, let it rise)
Love to see the expression on your face
(you're tellin' me girl it's feelin' good)
while I'm makin' you wet all over the place
(place I knew, I knew you would)
In this chocolate mood

There ain't nothin', nothin' like a chocolate man
to put you in the mood
said it once and I'll say it twice
ain't nothin' like (oh there ain't nothing like)
A chocolate mood
There ain't nothin', nothin' like a chocolate man
To get you in the mood
said it once and I'll say it twice
ain't nothin' like (oh there ain't nothing like)
a chocolate mood

Baby lick on my navel
(come here)
here let me put you on my pool table
shoot the black ball in the pocket
(baby, hold on to me)
Doesn't make sense to me,
how could you be so damn sexy
and while you're on top of me,
makin' me do the nasty
It's chocolaty


I got it baby
if you want it girl
so come and get with me
finger lickin' good
so better stay a while
cause I'm gonna get with you
there's a lot of thngs we can do tonight
I'm down to try anything you like
I've got a chocolate hand
baby, I'm the candy man
and I'll be your best friend


Lyrics from Marc Nelson's - Chocolate Mood (Track 13)

My Wishlist - Reloaded for B-Day Purposes!

Unlike Aco who is hinting......I will make my 'demands' known for my B-Day. LOL!!!

My last wishlist.....only ONE item was accomplished. I tell a lie, TWO things were accomplished.......
  1. I got to spend Chrissy with my friends and when I called home my family and friends there too were kosher, unfortunately for one exception - Bel-jazz.
  2. I got my i-Mac, of which I am convinced by now the 'i' means internet. Most of the items I click on has a pop-up screen.....'you are not connected to the internet'.....LOL!
  3. Something else that was not on the list but got was this right here - am really enjoying it. Beats the junk I was using before. Battery life was crap. Good looking, but crap!

Now, for this year, I don't want much. Just the following:

  • VS Merchandise like undies, sexy sleepwear, swimwear & get the drift. Blue is the main colour here......reds, oranges, yellows and definately blacks are accepted. (Milo - here are more clues)
  • i-Pod - Engraved Mocha13
  • Hed Kandi compilations - the first ones.
  • Additions to my family
  • Last but not least, a KBW - UK Edition meet-up.

So, I have already put a countdowm clock on my blog! Keep it here, Keep it locked!


Right, here goes my smart answers to the not so smart questions!

1. Black and White or Colour; how do you prefer your movies?

Colour for sure! I mean my life is a movie in itself.....and I see it in colour!

2. What is the one single subject that bores you to near-death?

Mathematics............I hate numbers yet they are everywhere. In fourth form, my exercise book was dated the previous year. How I managed not to get an E in the finals, only God knows.

3. MP3s, CDs, Tapes or Records: what is your favourite medium for pre-recorded music depends on availability

As an aspiring Dj, I will have to say records. For space and weight issues, MP3 for sure!

4. You are handed one first class trip plane ticket to anywhere in the world and ten million dollars cash. All of this is yours provided that you leave and not tell anyone where you are going … Ever. This includes family, friends, everyone. Would you take the money and ticket and run?

As much as I have that (tiny) greed streak in me - my family and friends are much to important to me. Besides, what is 10million dollars if you cant share it with the people that you love? It would drive you insane.

5. Seriously, what do you consider the world’s most pressing issue now?

Since I never got to fulfill my dream of becoming Miss World......I will fulfill it here by saying WORLD PEACE!

6. How would you rectify the world’s most pressing issue?

Become the head of the UN and use the situation to end the chaos in our society, by using tact and the Human Right Laws to protect the people of the world. YEAH RIGHT, what a load of bullocks!

7. You are given the chance to go back and change one thing in your life; what would that be?

Bridging the communication gap with my mom when I was younger. I can say now that the gap has being sealed pole pole.

8. You are given the chance to go back and change one event in world history, what would that be?


9. A night at the opera, or a night at the Grand Ole’ Opry –Which do you choose?

None - all that malarky just bores me!

10. What is the one great unsolved crime of all time you’d like to solve?

Who shot Tupac and Biggie?

11. One famous author can come to dinner with you. Who would that be, and what would you serve for the meal?

Omar Tyree - Ugali, Sukuma Wiki & Meat Stew

12. You discover that John Lennon was right, that there is no hell below us, and above us there is only sky — what’s the first immoral thing you might do to celebrate this fact?

Become a controlled nympho! Controlled you ask? Ala, my nyap is not battery operated! LOL!

OK......smarta$$e$....I take it back. Those were my not so smart answers to smart questions! There I have done the these four have been tagged:

  • Mama's Junkyard
  • KikuyuMoja
  • Milonare
  • Spicebear
