Bob Collymore has donated his personal gym equipment christian artiste Juliani, for his mega project labelled Dandora Hiphop City.
“Nobody should blame me for putting on weight now, as I have donated my personal gym equipment towards this noble cause. Just like in the humming bird’s story, Hiphop City is an initiative in the right direction.
If each and every single one of us can play their part, I believe we can transform and influence this and the coming generations. This fantastic project demonstrates the creativity, enterprise and passion needed to help transform the face of Dandora that people can be proud to live, work and be associated with,” says Collymore.
The initiative has also been endorsed by other influential individuals like CJ Willy Mutunga and National Bank of Kenya MD Munir Sheikh Ahmed. It’s aimed at creating jobs, apprenticeships and training places for the youth in the sprawling crime-prone Nairobi estate.
Christian artiste Juliani met with National Bank CEO , Munir Sheikh, as the bank opened its doors to work with him under his project of Dandora Hip-hop city.
With that said Juliani would have been excited but little did he know that before he met the CEO at the Stanley he would actually meet two people who would make his day even brighter.
Juliani thanked GOD by saying :
Today was a good day! Met the National Bank CEO for lunch spent more than 2 Hrs discussing banking sector, youth market & synergies to work together! Just before the meeting, I bumped into IMG Sonko & Musembi QTV at the Stanley Loby! who committed in total 90 Bags of Cement for the renovation of the Dandora HipHop City an Art & Business incubator in Dandora. God is Good!
Dandora Hiphop city is a vibrant, creative, transformational art center that uses programs in Music & Art to inspire Kenyan youth towards a deeper appreciation of culture and tradition, empowering them to develop their own creative potential.
The Program’s objectives are to:
• Provide a safe space for youths to share experiences, stories, and projects.
• Give youths a platform to express themselves through arts.
• Teach youths to use traditional and modern musical instruments as a means of expression.
• Give youth alternatives to drugs and crime.
The late Peter Kahura Kaberere was a lovely man cherished by many for his heart to serve in the kitchen and in church. Kaberere brought so much joy to people’s life’s and one of such people who shared a moment with him is renown Christian hip-hop artiste Juliani/Julius Owino.
Award winning singer Juliani on Tuesday evening shared of what he truly misses about Kaberere whom he once called a friend and brother in Christ. Kaberere and Juliani had an amazing friendship such that when he passed on Juliani dedicated a tribute to Kabz as he played a vital role in his journey of salvation.
On his remembrance for Kabz, Juliani shared the following statement :
“Do you remember how kaberere used to speak and make a mathogothanio conversation and it made sense? I miss that man.”
Earlier in April 7th 2014 when Kabz passed away Juliani dedicated a tribute to Kaberere to his fans showing the connection he once had with our fallen icon in gospel music.
“I knew him as Goodman. I met him when I was still in class five. We shared a mutual Muslim child friend called Feisal. I know Kabs as a GOODMAN, welcoming,warm, funny, Most consistent Christian I know, ambassador of Christ his lifestyle was a clear evidence of this testimony. Without indulging in much details Kabs was a goodman. He never called me Juliani or sijui nini! He called me Atur. The name of my early Christian mentors who helped me get born again and held my hand through salvation. May The good Lord give your wife strength. And when your Kids are all grow up, we will say “Your father was a good man”
Juliani will be having a concert on September 5th at Alliance Francaise.
So when we first heard the name of the album cover would be called “Exponential Potential” we were like wait a minute. This is a song that made people go ham in hip-hop when Juliani was nominated under the hip-hop category in Groove Awards 2012.
Exponential Potential album was launched on Tuesday Night 22nd April at the Go Down Arts Centre from 5.30Pm. At the 1st instant of hearing that the album is called Exponential Potential you would think that its about going out bigger and reaching the biggest potential in life.
This is not the same for Juliani as he says “Exponential Potential is about going back to the roots where we 1st belonged” . He added that “it is that point before Eve ate the forbidden fruit in the garden of Eden which is a place they lived at peace with GOD.”
You would be inspired by this new album which has something out standing with songs like : Jehovah , One Day , Master Piece among others that you can access at the Orange shop outlets.
You must listen to this new album that was released on his 30th Birthday on 22nd April.
For so many years I have heard of artists crying out that music marketing and distribution is a high hill to climb in a day. This is something that award winning artist Juliani has thought about and has worked on a plan to tackle it.
Juliani/Julius Owino known for his songs “Utawala” , Voters v Vultures and recently featured on Sheria with Sarabi band will be launching his new album called Exponential potential. To make the launch a success and the distribution to reach the target market he has enetred into a partneship with Orange Kenya. In this partnership Juliani says :
“Exponential potential album will be available across the country and each fans will be able to access the album through Orange money at a subsidized rate.”
Most of us have seen the video of Juliani’s new Song “Utawala” with Kenyans which talks about bad leadership. Bad leadership has been a trending story in our country and also our contintent Africa as bad Leaders take advantage to misuse public resources.
He also released a lyrics of the video and we decide to share with you. Here is the video and lyrics.
Hard ku get wadhifa una deserve bila cash ama kashfa
hii society kenye wanaeza share ni nyungu ya busa ama kettle ya shisha
Mfuko unasikia echo
utajua thamani ya mali na size ya kifuli
hujaibiwa juu hauna ka kitu worth risking jail time, police bullets for
unaeza argue crime doesn’t pay lakini huezi dismiss justice ina bei
mwizi ana fourty days, 365 days later anaendelea ku grow fatter
Do anything for power, ready to loose their head for presidency bora waione kwa currency
sababu gani siko affected na turbulance nikifly angani
nimezoea the same feeling matatu zikipitia pothole mtaani
CHORUS:Niko njaaa hata siezi karanga
hoehae shaghala bhaghala niko tayari kulipa gharama
