Despite our different careers, almost everyone of us likes to watch a movie to either refresh ourselves after working all day or during our leisure time with our friends and families. With today's technical World, someone can watch movies at the cinema halls or at the comfort of your home. Discomfort however creeps in when you watch a movie you cannot understand the plot.
This is where deejays chip in and translate these movies using comic styles that makes the whole movie cool and much interesting. This has now gone beyond movies you cannot only understand but even those that characters speak in English. Today let us explore the World of the Kenyan movie deejays who translate movies in a very peculiar way but interesting way.
James Muigai also known Deejay Afro is arguably the father of comic style in Kenya. Close to a decade and a half now, Deejay Afro has reigned over the Kenyan television screens with his peculiar style. He has translated close to 300 movies. His ability to build stories and assign kikuyu names to characters is beyond amazing.
