    Kenyan Stories by Daniel Duwa - Pinky Ghelani - Public Speaker & International Presenter

    Pinky Ghelani is on this episode of Kenyan Stories.

    There are people who come into our lives and have an impact that lasts for decades. My guest on this episode is that kind of a person. When I was a teenager with dreams of bringing grand festivals to the city of my birth, Nairobi, my guest took her time to show me throw the ropes. That was over two decades ago.

    Today, Pinky Ghelani wears many hats, a noted public speaker, a thought leader, a campaigner, an animal lover, a mother, spouse, and inspiration to many. While this interview covers a small part of her life, please find her on the socials and support the courses that she is pursuing.

    She is @pinkyghelani on all the socials,  also a supporter of UNHCR, a former speaker @TEDx. Some of her key values are: Positive Empowerment. Inspire your mind. Nourish your soul. Kindness is key. Your vibe attracts your tribe.

    Kenyan Stories is produced by me, Daniel Duwa.

    Kenyan Stories by Daniel Duwa #podcast​ features Dead Prez - Hip Hop Duo Performance in Nairobi

    Dead Prez    



    Dead Prez, is an American hip-hop duo composed of Stic Man & M-1, formed in 1996 in New York City. They are known for their confrontational style, combined with lyrics focused on both militant social justice, self-determination, and Pan Africanism.   I should not have a favorite, but my favorite song by the duo is Mind Sex, a hip hop take on sensual love I think.  Enjoy the performance.

    Kenyan Stories by Daniel Duwa - A Tribute to Ayub Ogada - Kenyan Artist of All Time - A Live Performance

    Kenyan Stories by Daniel Duwa - A Tribute to Ayub Ogada - Kenyan Artist of All Time - A Live Performance

    The late Ayub Ogada was regarded as one of the greatest Kenyan artists of all time. He was born in 1956 in Mombassa as Job Seda, a descendant of the proud Luo people of western Kenya. At six, his parents took him to Chicago, where his father studied medicine. Ayub recalls meeting Muhammad Ali (then Cassius Clay), and experiencing the aftermath of American segregation, even as his parents toured college campuses performing Luo music at a time when the term 'world music' was unknown in commercial circles.

    Kenyan Stories by Daniel Duwa features Bring Fresh Founder - Lysandra Chen - Africa's Fastest Growing Start-Up

    Lysandra Chen is a founder of Africa’s fastest-growing startups, Bringo Fresh. www.bringofresh.com also available by App on Apple and Android stores and on-call. In this Kenyan Story, you will eavesdrop of a journey that spans over two decades. It's unlike any other convention founder story and more like two long lost friends catching unpin real-time and you come along for the journey.  Lysandra and I meet when we were teenagers, cutting our teeth by creating a space, a creative space, and taking over the city with career goals and dreams which were unconventional then and now. Along the way, it would define a new way of thinking and usher in a generation of Kenyans who would leave a footprint at a time when conformity was the norm. I would like to thank Lysandra for giving me her time and for sharing her life so candidly with us.
