Commonly known for being one of Kenya’s most private artists, Nyashinski is stepping into the limelight with a new production.
He recently posted on Twitter introducing a new YouTube series dubbed ‘Nyashinski Talks’, with his first guest being the Nairobi Senator Hon. Johnstone Sakaja.
The conversation focused on career, life, and leadership with the two public figures bonding over shared experiences. Their admiration for each other played out in the interview. Hon. Sakaja did not shy away from declaring his love for the ‘Glory’ rapper pointing out he “is a big fan of Nyashinski and his music”.
The prolific politician even went on to rap along to Nyashinski’s releases, even revealing that he once dropped a few tracks himself with ambitions of making it big as a musician. “If I wasn’t in leadership,ningekuwa pastor,” he said.
He explained that he knew the kind of path he wanted from a very young age of 8, he wanted to be a leader, he told himself that he would be president one day. His vision was very clear from the beginning and it was almost as if everyone could see that too, he was a prefect in high school and a student leader in campus as well.
Speaking about his career path, Nyashinski went on to explain that as much as people want office jobs, there aren’t a lot of opportunities, he wanted to be part of the change. He noted he wanted something different for himself acknowledging he was interested in art from a young age.
The duo had a great conversation that featured several life lessons. Here are 3 takeaways to draw away from the conversation:
1.Leadership Begins At A Young Age
Not only will this help children have control of their destiny, but it will also help them set goals for themselves and be motivated to achieve them. The idea that leadership is a skill exercised at a particular age is archaic. Leadership begins at childhood, and those who endeavor to do so make a better society for everyone.
2.Invest In Children
Investing in your kids is great, it will help them understand what it is they want to achieve for themselves. If you decide to invest for them that’s okay but at the end of the day, you are trying to invest in something that your children are excited about, something that even without your help they will help grow.
3.Keep Your Circle Small
When you are surrounded by people who know you, it’s easier for you to grow and succeed, they know who you are and what exactly can work well with you, therefore, build on your success.
