Thursdays by Jackson Biko
by Jackson Biko
Vina Wira band
On the drum is a guy who writes code
The lead singer is gifted songstress redefining what society wants her to be.
The bass guitarist and vocalist hides himself under an electric personality. The moody fellow at the songwriter and a pianist, born to privilege but with the darkness that cant fit in a travelling bag.
The band is struggling. Every Thursday they play in the streets of Nairobi, outside a building that houses a recording label they will sign them, give them their big break. At night, they play in a shady bar overlooking a junkyard with dismembered vehicles.
They are hungry to make it.
But does the universe share their hunger?

Biko is nothing short of the modern day superb writer. We wish he'd have sequel on his books. Can't wait to find out what Jared will do to Mwendwa. Oooh and Thando, I hope she won't dissipate. Looking forward to a continuation of Thursday. Vina wira must re-unite. Impeccable read.
