What did you want to be when you were growing up?
To be honest, I didn’t know what I wanted to be. All I knew (still know) is that I’m special. Not normal special, I mean I-have-super-powers special. I like to tell myself I was raised by TV because first time I watched Spiderman, a while later a spider crawled on me and I just waited for when I started spinning webs, bending my hands and pointing it around and stuff. It didn’t happen but It didn’t stop there, I wanted to be Flash… then a character in Saber Rider cartoon and then I became a teenager and thought I look like Tupac. You can guess what that made me
think realize; I can rap! So I started writing rhymes, I’m good at it too. Not me talking everybody told me. Oh and I haven’t told you about my powers, I can read peoples thoughts like Jane of The Mentalist. Don’t even get me started with the type of dreams I get. In my dreams I control the weather and all. I’m serious. So to cut the story short, I still don’t know what I am let alone what I want to be. All I know is I want to be rich and I want to be happy.

What do you most enjoy about your job?
My job? I guess that’s when people think I’m so important… and the going home part.
Who would you most like to have dinner with?
Wow, I was just waiting for when I was going to get to this question. I would like to have dinner with Curtis Jackson, I follow the dude on twitter, funny as hell and rich as f*ck! Living my life. I have a thing for rappers, most people just write them off as these ignorant bustards who won’t go for six seconds without saying a curse word (did you notice the rhyme?), but hey just ignore the bad words and listen to some, SOME of the things they say, makes a lot of sense. You just need to know how to separate the real from the unreal stuff, rappers are known to mix these things up. You ask them about it and they contradict themselves. Pretty much like how life is, if you cant do that, you’re favourite question to ask is going to be “what does that mean?” And if you just asked yourself what I mean, well, there you go. I can’t help you.
Who is your role model?
I don’t have any but I have a few people I admire. One is Martha Karua. But I really think I need a role model, a mentor. I was thinking Alykhan Satchu, I think I sent him an email a while back and asked him. I didn’t get a response. But we are ‘friends’, met him a couple of times and talked though I don’t think he’d remember me. He’s funny I must say and… inspiring. And is it okay if I say I admire Jesus would like to be like Him? Yeah, I want to be where the saints are, akina Moses and the likes. I admire their courage to live a strictly spiritual life or something like that.
If you could be one person for a day, who would that be?
Julie Gichuru’s Husband, no doubt.
