(playing acoustics and singing to Andy Mbugua’s song Ananijali)
INTERVIEWER: Wow, interesting, we are having a very good show today, welcome listeners to today’s segment and today in studio we have one of the amazing acoustic player by the name…he will introduce himself
INTERVIEWEE: (laughing) my name is George Kariuki musically they know me as Gee
INTERVIEWER: Gee welcome to our studio today, where we will talk about music, young men with music
INTERVIEWEE:thank you, music,(playing acoustics) music music
INTERVIEWER:Welcome, So Gee Kariuki when did you first start playing music?
INTERVIEWEE: I started with the guitar, which is this acoustics and that was after form four so that is 2013 December,
INTERVIEWER: And where do you majorly play?
INTERVIEWEE: I play at events and at church
INTERVIEWER: interesting, what kind of events do you play at?
INTERVIEWEE: ah, every event that is positive and impacts the society in a good way, I insist on that, positive events that contributes to the society positively
INTERVIEWER: That means that there are some other events that do not contribute to the society
INTERVIEWEE: yeah, of course
INTERVIEWER: Definitely, There is issue or a concern where an instrumentalist in church is found playing at a club
INTERVIEWEER:Yeah, you’ve heard of such kind of cases?
INTERVIEWEE: yeah, it is not a surprise to me, and it is not a good thing because you can not serve two masters, when you are playing in church you are serving God and when you are playing in clubs you are serving whoever opposes to God because you know the things that go on in a club
INTERVIEWER: (interrupting) and definitely it’s the devil
INTERVIEWER: But t&ere is a critical concern that the while thing revolves around money, they are not appreciated in church so they will sort out appreciations elsewhere
INTERVIEWEE: I know, they are a lot of ways and it is not a good way by the way, because your center of all these should not be money, because I do these for passion and I know I need money so if I play in church and I am not recognized, I will go a step further and commercialise my talent, there are many ways if earning money without going to clubs, I record my music to the internet and I get paid using royalties, I can record and sell CDs and again motivation songs and love songs. I mean we can also be entertainers without going t clubs and that is how they don’t get it right
INTERVIEWER: So it is a good idea gotten wrong!
INTERVIEWEE: yeah, it’s a good idea gotten wrong
INTERVIEWER: So what advice will you give them
INTERVIEWEE: I will advice them that if you doubt that there is money in the church, you come, and be faithful to the one you are serving and don’t look at people and people are looking for quick schemes to get rich, you know these things and in a club you can get rich quick I promise and that is a trap for many people
INTERVIEWER: Yeah, quick cash!
INTERVIEWEE: Yeah, quick cash, that is their trap, yeah
INTERVIEWER: so, thank you so much for coming and sparing your time to be with us today and telling us how good it is to stay faithful to God. Asante Sana Gee
INTERVIEWEE: Karibu sana
