Happy Madaraka Day Kenya: The Hustle Continues!

madaraka day

My country celebrates Internal Self Governance Day(Madaraka Day) today. I thought i’d share a song that i find almost captures the Kenyan spirit. Enjoy your day off responsibly and let politicians not use you.

”Kenyan Oxygen”

Breathe out, breathe in
Kenyan oxygen
Every breath I breathe
Chasin’ this Kenyan Hustle
We sweat for a nickel and a dime
Turn it into an empire
Breathe in, this feeling
Kenyan, Kenyan oxygen
Kenyan oxygen
Breathe in, this feeling
Kenyan, Kenyan oxygen

Oh say can you see, this is the Kenyan Hustle
Young girl, hustlin’
On the other side of the street
You can be anything at all
In Kenya, Kenya
I say, can’t see
Just close your eyes and breathe

Breathe out, breathe in
Kenyan oxygen
Every breath I breathe
Chasin’ this Kenyan Hustle
We sweat for a nickel and a dime
Turn it into an empire
Breathe in, this feeling
Kenyan, Kenyan oxygen
Kenyan oxygen
Breathe in, this feeling
Kenyan, Kenyan oxygen
Kenyan oxygen
Breathe in, this feeling
Kenyan, Kenyan oxygen

Oh say can you see, this is the Kenyan Hustle
Young boy, hustlin’
Tryna get the wheels in motion
But he can be anything at all
In Kenya, Kenya
I say, can’t see
Just close your eyes and breathe

Breathe out, breathe in
Kenyan oxygen
Every breath I breathe
Chasin’ this Kenyan Hustle
We sweat for a nickel and a dime
Turn it into an empire
Breathe in, this feeling
Kenyan, Kenyan oxygen

This is the new Kenya
We are the new Kenya
[a country of possibilities}

Breathe out, breathe in
Kenyan oxygen
Every breath I breathe
Chasin’ this Kenyan Hustle
We sweat for a nickel and a dime
Turn it into an empire
Breathe in, this feeling
Kenyan, Kenyan oxygen
Kenyan oxygen
Breathe in, this feeling
Kenyan, Kenyan oxygen
Kenyan oxygen
Breathe in, this feeling
Kenyan, Kenyan oxygen

This is the new Kenya
We are the new Kenya
[a country of possibilities]
