I have done lots of projects in my life but this one really showed me a new perspective to life and its a mystery to me how i connected with the project on so many different levels. So one Saturday am chilling and i get a call from Producer Bruce Odhiambo to come to his studio Johari Cleff. Once i got there he gave me a story of how a Rapper came to the Youth Fund offices not to ask for money but request for an opportunity to get into the booth and realize his dream/passion of becoming a musician. The Rapper’s name is called Lal Daggy and he described me as the best guy he would love to work with. Then Bruce broke the news that Lal Daggy is Deaf and Mute…. WOW!!! So how was the song going to work?
Apparently Lal Daggy can feel the beat/metronome although he cant hear the sounds. So i had to be his voice in a song he had written in English which nilihave kuchukua consume it and translate it Ki Genge without loosing the meaning. Basically i was just a vessel passing through Lal Daggys message to the World. (Never Experienced anything like that) humbled and thank both Bruce & Lal Daggy for giving me the opportunity!
Message from Bruce Odhiambo (Chairman Youthfund) #ReDefiningNormal
STORY YA MACHAMPIONS
The daily story of our lives, when somebody wants to
See you, they either need some kind of help; mainly Financial or
Just want to pour their problems to us.
This is a scenario that we are all very familiar with.
When I got appointed the Chairman of the YOUTH ENTERPRISE DEVELOPMENT FUND it escalated Two hundred fold but now they
Didn’t seek for my finances but the Government finances.
Still the most important was my ability to LISTEN. Always Listen. It doesn’t cost us anything.
One day my receptionist comes to ask for an appointment on behalf for a friend, this friend turns out to be DEAF and DUMB, I give them an audience and am shocked at His request… His name is LAL DAGGY and tells me “ Mr. Bruce, am Deaf and Dumb but my DREAM is to be a RAPPER. This takes me aback and I invite them to come over to my Johari Cleff Studios.
They come three…. Lal Daggy, a Lady sign language translator and another guy who is Lal Daggys VOICE.
I ask him what type of Music and He says Hip-hop. My next question is how would He hear the Music, which He says,”I CAN FEEL IT” (GOD works Mysteriously)!!!
Am in Studio doing his music, so we start with the Metronome, Lal Daggy can actually feel it and with his fingers pointing up and down, we settle on an adequate BPM.
Finally I ask Him who His favorite Kenyan Rapper is and He describes NONINI. It’s here that I call NONINI to the Studio and inform Nonini I want Him to be Lal Daggys VOICE(Nonini is totally Humbled)…Lal signs His Lyrics and Nonini Voices for Him. The only thing we changed on this song was the title from His original “Born Life” to “STORY YA MACHAMPIONS”
This is the Song as am still doing the Final Mixing and Mastering and as we also do a Video for Him. All LAL DAGGY asked for is an Opportunity to be a RAPPER….
If at any one time you thing you have problems………THINK AGAIN.
This is just the Lyrics and Ruff Music Mix. Song and Video coming out in Two weeks.
