Nairobi raha is all about Nairobi’s lifestyle, whether Nairobi's Nightlife, Nairobi Pictures or any other and I dare ask you is your lifestyle Nairobi worthy? Nairobians are people, who like pleasure and in Swahili I would say,’ Ni watu wa kupenda raha.’
Raha when loosely translated means pleasure, and Lol, Nairobi provides plenty of this and the satisfaction that comes with it. This the pride that makes us a proud society, a people living on the first line, seeing possibilities and working to make ends meet.
Yet will all this be satisfied of who we are, out lifestyle and what makes us a robust city.
Nairobi raha does not need to about sex, it does not need to be about gossip. Yes it does not need to be about pornography. Our lifestyle defines who we are, what a city we are building and what makes us tick.
When I fell in love with Nairobi, I choose to make it may home reason being that it provides what I love most, opportunities, opportunities and more opportunities. That is my city, which is my pleasure.
Way back in 2008 when my family and I choose to settle here I remember asking my partner this direct question. What pleasure does the city provide to you? Here was her answer, “My pleasure is what I can be able to do. Being able to shop when I want, taking coffee at my preferred restaurant, enjoying the pleasant weather….being able to raise my kids….being able to enjoy myself’’.
What a better way to agree. My pleasure includes watching live English premier league games every weekend, taking coffee at my preferred joint, going to the local Stadia to watch local teams battle out for football or rugby glory.
On Saturday or Sunday afternoon when it is not a match day( Sorry a Match day is one of those days that a football game is being played,whether the local football league or the much adored English premier league), then I look at What time is it in Nairobi( I would likely be found at Nairobi National Park, Nairobi National Museum or better still watch the latest movie at Kenya Cinema. My friend would rather go look for Nairobi Hair Products, she loves everything about hairstyles and that is her raha.
I do not know your favorite Nairobi raha is all about. But one thing is for sure, let not you pleasure be your master but rather be master over your pleasure. Ji enjoy ( Enjoy yourself).
