Eko Dydda vs Holy Dave
By Matilda Nzioki
P: If you were to compete in a kukula kichwa ya fish competition with Eko Dydda, who would win?
HD: I think Eko Dydda would win the fish eating competition because during the Niko Na Reason video shoot I learnt that out of anxiety he had bought fish the day before. After the video shoot I looked for the fish and didn’t find it. Clearly one of us likes fish more than the other.
P: Imagine you were in a head-to-head free styling battle with Eko Dydda. Drop one line that would kill it.
HD: Who wants swag? I got some extra/Who wants punchlines? I’m a teleprompter/Nachapa dem na swag anakimbilia FIDA/Nachapa boy na punchlines ana stammer kaa Eko Dydda/Ssssssssoooooooo blessed lately wanabonga tu juu ya HD kaa Mau Forest
P: Eko Dydda "akona reason gani"?
HD: I think he saw me wearing an Ecko Unlimited T-shirt and Adidas shoes but by the time he got home he had forgotten the spelling so he called himself ‘Eko Dydda’. Hahaha!
P: If you woke up and found that you were Eko Dydda what would be you New Year’s resolution?
HD: My New Year’s resolution would be to use a comb more often…
P: If you were not rapping, what would be doing?
HD: I would be in IT department somewhere because I have a Bachelors degree in Computer Science from Daystar University and I am currently pursuing a Master of Business Administration (MBA) in Entrepreneurship at USIU.
P: What did you think of Eko Dydda the first time you met him?
HD: The first time I met him I was hosting an open mic session at an event called Madlove Lounge. When I called him on stage, I thought to myself, "Who is this guy performing in slippers and carrying a back-pack?" He, however, rapped so well that we ended up giving him 20 minutes instead of the five allocated to each artiste.
P: Supposing a bomb was to be dropped in your hometown today, what would be your biggest regret so far?
HD: Honestly, at the moment, my biggest regret would be leaving the world before getting a chance to record the Niko Na Reason remix! I look forward to making it the biggest remix for 2010.
ulse: If you were to compete in a kukula kichwa ya fish competition with Holy Dave, who would win?
ED: That’s definitely me. Fish is one of my favourite dishes and I would eat without looking at the competition. Dave does not enjoy eating fish.
P: Imagine you were in a head-to-head free styling battle with Holy Dave. Drop one line that would kill it.
ED: Nime hate…juo, Juu nimekunywa H2O of life, Ndio maana nachukia sia..sa, Hata ukinicall the answer ni…samahani mteja wa nambari uliyopiga hapatikani kwa siasa, Ndio maana nime pose na kuamua, Badala ya kukuwa hero…tu, Afadhali niwe zero…tu, Anifanye niwe zero…2, Oxygen so important in life!
P: What are the reasons for Holy Dave to come with such a name?
ED: He’s called David hence Dave and he aspires to be holy, therefore Holy Dave. Listen to his track Whatever Men he raps: "I am not holy but I wanna be…"
P: If you woke up and found that you were Holy Dave what would be you New Year’s resolution?
ED: That’s a tricky one! I almost can’t come up with one; kuingia kwa kiatu ya mtu ni homework!
P: If you were not rapping, what would you have been doing?
ED: I’m a talented footballer who just decided to follow my heart and pursued music. I guess I would have been on the pitch sweating it out.
P: What did you think of Holy Dave the first time you met him?
ED: I just thought that’s a nice guy, and sincerely speaking he’s pleasant person. He relates well with other people and is focused.
P: Supposing a bomb was dropped in your hometown today, what would be your biggest fear?
ED: I would feel bad that I have I’ve left people behind without teaching them the word of the Lord.
