This week saw one of the most hilarious memes break the internet with hilarious captions. People jumped at it, Team Mafisi did and of course corporate companies were not left behind. Which meme are we talking about? Well, you guessed it right, “Mimi? Ati mimi nikasema……, mimi?”.
It was so hilarious, right. By the way, everything has an origin, memes have origins as well. Last year we had a stone-faced kid who was very serious in her schoolwork. Then it was unravelled that the kid’s name was Jake, he was Ghanaian and the internet came up with different memes over that photo.
So about the recent meme, you might not know this but, the meme is of a Japanese action character who goes by the name Saitama. Saitama in reality is a city in Japan. The character Saitama is a protagonist in a super-hero parody webcomic that has been ongoing since 2009. Saitama is widely known as One-Punch man. So yes, he’s a superhuman.
Here are a few facts about the fictional character;
Saitama is usually deliberately drawn in a simpler style than other characters, with a very rounded head and only a simple mouth and eyes. He really doesn’t look like an action character. kinda laid back and when compared to other superhuman beings, he looks rather less. His costume is always a plain yellow jumpsuit with a short zipper at the collar and a belt, then an ensemble of red boots and gloves, and a white cape.
If you have been to whatsapp today (which I am sure you have), then you must have noticed that it’s a whole new experience. We woke up to a whatsapp we’re not used to, one that enables you use photos, videos and GIFs to create message stories.
This is very much similar to Snapchat, who register over 2.5 billion snaps every day. Facebook is known to have bought Whatsapp last year for a whooping $19 billion and the owner is known to try many things in improving their services to social media users. By the way, last year Facebook brought a key Instagram feature (Instagram stories) to Facebook and it seems he is doing the same by cloning Snapchat’s most interesting feature.
The status have a 24-hour lifespan, but you can change. So instead of the three options, now you have four with the new one being the camera option which you can use to go live, take photos or a video, caption it and edit before posting it to your audience.
Comedian Eric Omondi has been sharing with us photos of him and his bae acting the roles of Adam and Eve at the garden of Eden. They were just photos, and we thought it would end there.
But hey, Eric Omondi always goes an extra mile. It wasn’t just a photoshoot! It was a small 15-minute video that also features Shantal Grazioli, his beautiful bae.
The video is narrated by popular radio presenter Nick Odhiambo. It goes through the Biblical story of Adam’s creation, how he named the other creations, how he was given Eve and how they eventually sinned.
The soundtracks for the movie is H_art the Band’s ‘Nikikutazama’ and Darassa’s Muziki.
Eric Omondi can go to some unimaginable heights to entertain his fans. When it means work, he can be dirty (forgive the pun) as his latest photos indicate. The comedian has once again sent tongues wagging after he went semi-nude, with his girlfriend in a series of photos that depicted him as Adam and his girlfriend as Eve.
With their donkey
The photos seem to be dropping after some time, and the storyline is quite familiar but interesting anyway.
One of the most trending videos last week was that of a English-Swahili translator who was giving false information. The translator, who was listening to a white tourist and translate her words to Swahili actually was saying his own words, bashing his countrymen without the knowledge of the tourist.
The tourist had visited NCAA of Ngorongoro and was expressing her admiration at Tanzanians but the tour guide skewed it all.
“My visit to Tanzania has been beautiful, gorgeous. The people are fabulously wonderful and friendly, greetings are always ‘Jambo’, happy to be here…” she began, but the translator said “Anasema watanzania mnalia sana njaa. Kila siku mnalia njaa, wakati mna maua nyumbani si mchemshe maua mnywe. Anasema si vizuri kulia njaa”.
Tanzania’s Minister of Tourism Jumanne Maghembe has since issued a warrant of arrest and said the lad was arrested at the Gate of Serengeti Game Reserve.
If social media was actually some street in Kenya, it would have been the most dangerous places to walk in. If you doubt, then ask president Uhuru Kenyatta. The Head of State yesterday hosted the dancing crew FBI in State House and had some good time with them.
Later, photos of the president dabbing with the crew and ‘gotaing’ popular radio presenter Mbusi went viral and the twittersphere has been awash with memes and hashtags. See some below.
