Another Spoken Word artist has dropped it just like it’s hot to Kenyans after releasing ‘Wanjinga Nyinyi’ (You fools) Part-2
Mark Joshua Ouma famously known as ‘Teardrops’ is in fact hitting the nail right on the head, gnashing politicians in his heated 5:25 long lyrics ‘Wajinga nyinyi’ Part-2.
In the Song, the artist raises serious questions about the state of corruption in the country saying he will not fear death since ‘One can kill the King but not the Prophecy’.
He says the country is highly blessed with corruption where expectant mothers who que for long while voting for politicians but die in maternity wings for poor or lack of basic modern equipments.
He is further expressing his fears that despite the struggle for independence for Kenyans to own and effectively use land to attain food security, land grabbers have taken all the land living Kenyans in acute poverty and squatters.

“Wanasema security starts with you, No security starts with ‘S’ what starts with ‘U’ is Ufisadi (Corruption), Uongo (Lies), Unyang’anyi (Robbery), Uizi (Stealing), Ujinga (Stupidity), Upuzi (Foolishness),” says Mr. Teardrops.
In the Video that has already sparked heated discussion on social media, Teardrops is seen in a toilet with a roll of tissue paper bearing Kenyan problems and politicians behaviours on it.
“Nikitazama nyuma ya noti ya so mbili naona cotton lakini mbona bado tunaimport mitumba?” poses the artist.
This translates to “At the back of a sh. 200 legal tender note there is a picture of cotton farmers but why are we importing second hand clothes,?” he posed.
The Wajinga nyinyi Part -2 just like King Kaka’s (Kennedy Ombima) ‘Wajinga Nyinyi’ Part-1 has ignited serious leadership debate among Kenyans and these artists may change the country for good.
“Politicians Wakinyamaza wameshiba, wakiongea wamenyimwa,” another lyric to the song ‘Wajinga Nyinyi’ Part-2 that loosely translates to “Politicians will always remain quite whenever they are comfortable but they only make noise when they are denied their demands,” The context being politicians always push for salary increment.

Teardrops, Born in Makongeni Nairobi and brought up in Nakuru is the main composer and performer, while production work was done by Gituamba and violin by David Ralak.
No doubt the Kenyan Spoken Word music is slated for major overhaul that has equally shaken the political scene and the government as well.
