Q&A Mondays: @KevDaNative

Shares

Kevin Mbuthia is a human being, descendant of wherever-it-is-man-came-from.

Suspect has several aliases including @KevDaNative, Kev, Mundu-wa-hauz, That-hissing-sound-people-make-when-they-don’t- know-your-name (Kxsss-Kxsss) and according to the bartender at his local watering hole, “Boss”

His current favorite hobbies include:

Masquerading as a hardworking taxpayer under employment, kicking cute furry animals when upset and…..

Pretending to be a writer at http://naitivity.blogspot.com

He is known to be a live music enthusiast. It is also interesting to note that he has been spotted on the set of several visual productions getting electrocuted by the sound and lighting equipment. Once in a while, it is said that he manages to operate them.

What was your First phone?

It was an Ericson 1018i inherited (yes, title deed included) from my pops. It was so heavy it came with a belt holster. Actually, it got me into the belt wearing habit.

What do you prefer? Facebook or Twitter?

Twitter. It’s like CNN, Aljazeera, Fox, 24, The Oatmeal and your favorite stalker rolled into one. That should be a promo of sorts. Twitter: Where your favorite stalker gives you the news. *Whispering* In fact, I heard that when Facebook grows up, it wants to be like twitter.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Like location? I can’t really project that. I trend to drive around a lot.

Achievement wise, I really hope I will have mastered the time duration between shaves. There is a thin line between manly 5 O’clock shadow and gross hobo on the street beard you know.

Any questions for us?

When a bee dies, is it called a Was?

  • Its called a WasP 🙂

What would you do if you were president for a day?

I would commission the design and construction of a politician-powered power plant. No more reliance on sporadic water levels or “ombetting” (begging for) power from Uganda. We have enough politicians to last several generations.

Favorite book or movie

Favorite book – Do comics count? No? Okay, it has to be The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

Movie – That’s a tough battle between Gladiator and Field of Dreams, for very different reasons.

Who/What inspired you to do what you do now?

I’ve always had a passion for media. I would have preferred the passion in juice form but it is what it is. It’s an out of this world feeling to see others enjoy listening to a product you helped piece together.

If you were to change jobs, what profession would you get into and why?

I would be a professional test driver for any German vehicle manufacturer. The reason is self – explanatory, plus the only time that I’m truly at peace with myself and the world is when I’m driving.

If you had a superpower, what would it be?

It would be the power to persuade without words aka subconsciously convince you by looking into your eyes or something movielike like that.

*Cue Kenchic theme song*

Why you looking at me like that? I’m a creative, my job (whispers) is to convince you to buy stuff you don’t need or want in the first place. *walks away, whistling*

If deserted on an abandoned island, what 5 things would I want to have?

1) An endless supply of novels

2) A Samsung Galaxy Tab with full 3g Network (and earphones)

3) A crossbow (Too lazy to run after animals, shoot them down instead)

4) An endless supply of Heinekens

5) A map with coordinates to the female only island three waves away.

If you were a car, which one would you be and why?

A BMW Z4 – Good looking, practical yet personal and intimate. Purrs like a cat but has a kick like ten donkeys on steroids. Made for the Open road but at home on the city streets.

If you could be in any band in the world, which one would it be? And why?

Kindred, The Family Soul. Their music calms me down. I’d always be mellow, strumming on the bass guitar.

Share something interesting about yourself with our readers.

I am painfully shy. I make a lot of noise to hide that fact. It does make it terribly hard to make my intentions known though. *sigh*
