Being in Kenya is the best opportunity that you should not miss! Here is where we make funny clips out of real instances. Nobody has ever strained to think of its meaning; this is because the memes are naturally real.
Our Kenyans have never failed. Even the president makes his own remarks but in less than 2 minutes, comedy is made out of the same. It is framed until you think it is the real thing that was being discussed about. This is where we use sarcasm, humour, irony, imagery, mimicry, dramatisation among others.
The following are some if the Kenyan phrases that you can't forget in the trending "sheng" zone:
1. Ala! By Francis Atwoli:
It occurred during one of his interviews in Citizen TV by Jeff Koinange. He tried to defend himself saying that he doesn't know the winner of elections but the public knows who is their real leader. Under the same conditions, the phrase was captured and went viral up to date where it is working almost everywhere. That is how the phrase originated.
He is really the father of slangs like ' Tusitishwe, in whose hands are we safe among others.'
2. Kwani Ni Kesho:
This street slang was introduced by the celebrated personality Wizzo Tano Nane from Nakuru. Since he came to the limelight, he has wowed many people as a pillar of advising people to work hard today because they don't know what the future holds. The street slang Kwani ni Kesho has been used by many celebrities in Kenya like Khaligraph Jones.
Trust the process, it is really meaningful and this how most Kenyans work hard today for a better tomorrow. Hence the phrase is the epitome and catalyst of advising people to work hard.
The Nitakufinya duo Aron Asiiba Matendechere and Musyoka came to the limelight when their video surfaced online after 10-years. The slang became an internet sensation for over three months being used by majority of Kenyans before loosing its vitality.
The slang Sipangwingwi is now trending in Kenya being used by majority of politicians and celebrities in Kenya. It is trending on Tiktok as many content creators are jamming to the music banger produced by Gengetone stars Exray, Trio Mio and Sarru.
It has been the latest now in the industry. Most Kenyans are now using it where it means that you should focus on your duties and leave alone mine. It is true because the moment God finds you, he cannot ask you over my weaned deeds.
Maybe to summarize, there are very many Kenyan phrases with a vital meaning. Despite of originating from the street language, some of them are in reality uniting Kenyans and the language is now making us feel in Kenya. Not all the language is immoral but some of it is very useful. That is how Kenyans communicate nowadays.
