Serve You some Me

Peel me off my ego,
Clean enough that I have no single spot of it left,
Rince me with some ignorance,
A quick one just enough to ignore the naysayers,
Pound me into an emotional being,
Fine enough to be keen on all your emotions,
Boil me under some patience degrees,
Boil till I realize that its not gonna be a sweet day always,
Fry me with some apology,
For long enough till I apologize for not having learnt enough of it,

Garnish me with some jealous,
Just a sprinkle of it to protect you during the times when I need to,
Don’t serve me yet, simmer me on some good loving,
On low degrees that the world doesn’t here the noise of it,
And when am ready,
Serve me into one plate and consume me to the finish,
Because when the meal is hot and delicous,
Then it is justified to be mean.

I don’t ask for much,
I also don’t settle for less,
You may think of gifts,
But at times all I need is your smile,
Sometimes it’s not about the action,
But the assurance that you can act,
Don’t focus on large,
There is power in the small things you do.

I know you love me,
But that midday text doesn’t hurt,
I know you are okay
But there is a sweet feel when I just call to confirm
Forget about the read and ignored text
We both love when its answered in person
Don’t focus on large,
There is power in the small things you do.

Love is a beautiful thing or so they say. Its only when you have tasted it that you can have your own version to tell it to the world. It is even more worse when you have nothing to rely on but other people’s version of it to determine your love life. When you are in a relationship it is default that each of you is a succor of the other.


We are born different and this facts follows us the rest of our lives, in love should anything happen then do not use other persons’ narrative to determine or explain the direction and turn of events your relationship or marriage should take. Well, that said and done, three things are certain about the cause of termination of any love relation: violence, infidelity and desertion. Anything away from this is nothing but mere excuses that support someones own mischievous traits.


Redsan, who has been in the music industry for more than a decade now seems not to be blurred away by age as he always appears to be well kept and full of life, could this be the reason why he refers himself as badder than most? Well from his music he is bad-ass for sure. Releasing hit song after hit song he is a personality to reckon and if you are into reggae and ragga you will admit that he is the king of the genre in the region.


The sassy Vivian, known to many as Vivian Kenya has been in the limelight of the music arena since 2004 after her collabo track, My Dream with Jaguar shook the airwaves. Ever since then she has been doing a lot of justice to her fans and the Kenyan music community up to her latest collabo, Charm featuring Chameleon of Uganda. Full of beauty, vigor and African figure she can only deliver nothing but the best music. Attention3

With all the beauty and a mellifluous voice, who would desert such a lady? Many would be quick to say no one.  Facts remain facts though, many only put effort in the chase and once you have it under their hostage then they have nothing to put much effort towards. The big question is why does this happen to be a universal narrative among men? Ladies should this happen to you, just know you fell in for the tricks of a boy. Attention1

Over the past few weeks Mr Rumors went around seeking sympathy and telling people the Vivian  and Redsan were a thing and that they are seen spending some good time in exclusive places in the Kenyan Coast. Well just get it clear, when you have the best, you don’t flaunt it in public but guard it in secret chambers. The truth of the story is, this was nothing less that a music collabo and ATTENTION is the name of the song. The two artistes have mastered the interest of their fans and the Kenyan audience at large as this song is a whole new package of good vibes and a club banger. Have a listen of it HERE….. 

Special acknowledgement to Mainswitch Productions. At Tolbert Reports we give the song  an 8/10 rating. Enjoy

Before ‘I Do’

Cold feet, a cold heart and constricted veins, clothes all soaky and wet he stood in the heavy downpour allowing it to wash him clean. Clean of the troubled soul, clean of the broken heart and clean of the scraggy emotions. We all do it at some point, at times we prefer it rather than shaving because it is not that common. But does the soul really heal? Do the broken pieces retort, fix perfectly into one another? Crystal after crystal?


There comes a point in a life when man outflanks everything and derives priority in his marriage life. A focus and evaluation on his family, not the domicile one but one of his own, his own wife that he will come back to, children he will be proud of, ones that will run to him each evening when he comes back home, ones that will interfere with their call between him and their mum just to say how much they miss him. A family he can be proud of, a LEGACY worth to be admired and talked about. Mum tells me, a man’s success is not how much money he has made, but what type of family he has brought up.


Nobody wakes up in one just like a dream come true, you have to make it. Now they say beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder but some qualities in a lady are certain and universal to any man on planet earth. We (men) all want a beautiful woman, an independent woman, a smart woman both physically and intellectually, a woman who can relate well with people and is propitious. Now the world has never been fair, one, such a lady is scanty to come by and if you do then a man finds two at a go and he is left iffy.


Many of the thought ‘perfect’ couples still separate and the bond remains sour and miserable because most men will only focus on beauty and financial independence but there is a trick to it all. No human is an angel, we all have a dark side, a side most men don’t see in beautiful women or maybe it’s because love is blind?

Just before, just before the first step into it, just before you walk down the aisle, just before you say I do it is important to just know what exactly you are getting yourself into. There are four main things you need to consider in a lady as a man and vice versa.


First thing is understanding. What are some of the traits you would understand in your partner, what are the things people see as odd but you think when your better half does it is fine. They are what you derive your ‘identity’ in because they are silly but yet only make sense between the two of you? Once you find this then you are quarter way.


Aforementioned was the the fact that you should not hurry and that the greatest achievement is fine ding the negatives in the angel you want to spend the rest of your life with. Acceptance is the second thing on the list. Find out the objectionable characters within him or her that you will accept, recognize that we all are NOT perfect and therefore we all have an infirmity. Do not ignore this during the early stages then expect them to change later.


A good market attracts investors. Now we are always enthralled by something good in the other person that is why we take the bold step to engage. There are qualities that we do appreciate in the other person and this should be the glue that sticks us to them. Is it the beauty? Is it the nice voice? Or is it the sharp brains? But above all let them know you appreciate these qualities in them.


Ultimately, we all look for a life time partner or rather someone we will spend the better part of our life with. One needs to consider the characters in the better half that he or she is ready to live with. This is like knowing you are deaf and accept that it is your condition and there is nothing you can do about it to a point that you no longer see it as a frailty. This is the final and most importunate stage as this are usually the worst conditions you have to accept in a person. Just before you ‘I DO‘ watch the four factors out

Candle Lit

Tik tak, goes the sound of the switch and OMG! there is no electricity. “Hunny do we have candles?” is the question that came out of her mouth. Knowing this will add my points, I went with the reply, “Love am always sorted out and ready for anything.” I shut the door behind and head to the kitchen to look for the match and the candles and light them up. So the house is lit, not to perfection but at least there is some light. To me came the thought that it is the night when sign languages will speak louder than words. blog1

So we all went to the kitchen so that we could prepare dinner. We get everything rolling with division of work, well i had to help her out though I might not have been willing but I didn’t want her to go away so that it could be a spoilt night. I choose to chop the onions and when she saw me shed tears she giggled and broke the silence with the  question, ” Hun I thought real men don’t cry?” I couldn’t even reply all i did was smile and the next second all I felt was her near me and whispering to my ear, “this is all we go through when you are watching telly in sitting rooms”. I now asked myself, why don’t we help ladies with cooking in the kitchen? Do we imply that the telly programmes are more important than them? Or is it that we have allowed our ego to take control us and we think it is a woman work to cook. Since I could not answer her statement all I did was hug and assure her that I will be here with  her when she is cooking.

As we waited for the food to cook, I lifted her and made  her sit on the kitchen tiles and she was all smiles I didn’t know she liked it, and just made sure i will carry her down and from room to room for tonight. So we started sharing stories of how parents used to be harsh when there was a black out back in the days and you were told to go sit on the couch and not attempt even stepping down from the couch. We were so drawn into stories one after the other that by the time someone called my phone, food was also ready.  So we serve the food and head to the living room to enjoy ‘our efforts’ (counting preparing the spices as work)

Just before we are done with our dinner the candles go off and we have to  use our phones (who charge was almost finished) to light  the room. We cleaned up everything and with out lack on our side, our phones went off as well. And now we were there, two lover birds, helpless in the dark


In utter darkness, we hold hands and with the other hands gaining support on the wall just to make sure we are sure of where the corridor we head to the bedroom. With our phones off and nobody busy with Whatsapp groups and Instagram selfies, so we squeeze each others hands, listen to the pulse rate of one another and resume the story telling session.


Love filled room with laughter and giggling renting the air as we reminded each other of how we met, how she played hard to get but was also afraid of losing me because she had already fallen in love. Suddenly the lights were back and we all rushed to the living room to get our phones charged. Alas, the memorable night was now ruined, spoilt and sour.


Love can be the best feeling if we all give it all we have, it doesn’t take money to be keep your love sparkled all through, it is very simple, find time for your love. We are all glued to our social media accounts that we tend to think love is only existence when it is intimate. It is funny how immediately after sex we all look for our phone and check out what we have been missing on the gossipy whatsapp groups and check who is where at the moment via snapchat. If you value your LOVE then give it the one simple thing it requires, TIME.
