So last week I rumbled about the one and only Alpha-and fame getting to his head and a certain company-Concept what? Was very upset and wrote a letter disassociating itself from me, but in the first place, you should have noticed that in this column, am entitled to my opinions.
That is why I didn’t quote anybody or attribute whatever I expressed in there to anyone.
One thing I have noticed though is that a number of my ardent readers wrote back in agreement with my observations and I am sure Alpha himself knows and should know in future that at some point as a celebrity, he will have to deal with negative publicity and gossip (thank God Red Pepper is not here) and probably that is why he never bothered to hit back.
Not to say-I think there wasn’t anything bad in whatever I wrote, just a little advice from big brother (I am older than Alpha, seriously), so let’s not try to suggest that some people love Alpha more than others do...Sibyo se?
He made all of us proud but then we cannot assume that all is glossy and rosy, there are some bad points, which is true to all men since no Man is an island.
Pointing out some of these negative aspects will even help him aim higher as it is one way of improving where things are not good and for God’s sake, let’s not try to make a media frenzy out of this, the boy has just started a long musical journey-far from the miming (read Karaoke) that Tusker Project Fame is.
Away from that (I have more things to worry about than Alpha by the way), I really have this bugging land lady, so annoying that am now contemplating hiring a top assassin to finish her off but then I just remembered that conspiracy to murder is a crime punishable by life imprisonment.
The other option am considering is hiring NASA (anybody know where it is?) and it helps me ship her off to the Moon or Mars, probably this is where she belongs.
Am not being envious in anyway but surely if owning a house is a passport to become a pain in people’s probably already miserable life, then I should own one till further notice.
The story is, this woman who happens to be one land lady woke up one day and went to the nearest secretarial service (am sure she doesn’t know how a computer looks like) and decided to write us letters expressing her intentions to increase rent by almost double, citing such reasons like the credit crunch (ihungabana ry’ubukungu kw’isi hose), swine flu, TVA, World Cup 2010 blah blah.
We (my housemate and immediate neighbours) had no objection but agreed to pay the Rwf100.000 (since we have our money) but then she thought she hadn’t done much since we didn’t make any noise.
The next day she decides to switch off electricity and the day after, water- this time we could not keep quiet, we stormed her and she explained that we have to pay for the water separately since it is becoming costly.
How about the electricity we buy ourselves? She had no reasons. I was short of punching her but then I remembered that it would serve as a passport to the coolers for some good time since she owns that house.
Aha, the price of not having your own house!!!
I strongly believe the Government should do something about menacing landlords/ladies, probably ban them or send them to hell or mars.
Disclaimer: Alpha and the Landlady are not related at all, as the heading may seem to suggest.
