Philip Onyancha on the bench with Jeff Koinange - and @nanciellah's endless legs

@nanciellah posted a very funny TweetPhoto about the self-confessed serial killer Philip Onyancha on the bench with K24's Chief Reporter Jeff Koinange, and she was so kind to give me permission to share the fun with you on Kenya's most entertaining blog.

All naked and nude, stripped to the bone, X-rayted

Whenever I am featuring beautiful girls like Janet Mbugua, Diondra Bridges, @Queen_Lucky or Anne Kiguta on this fabulous blog, I get heaps of requests to show more of these girls by actually showing less.

Showing less? Well, this is not a porn site, so I have something else for you. Today we are going all naked and nude. Today our girls are baring it all. They are stripped to the bone. The “EIZO: Pin-up Calendar 2010” is really particular. This pin-up calendar offers you more than the usual integral nude: X-rayted girls literally! Eizo is a brand of medical supplies and their campaign is just awesome. The German advertising agency Butter put together the sexy calendar to promote Eizo's high-precision displays for medical imaging. Quite original. EIZO explains: “Whereas craftsmen are showered with pin-up-calendars at the end of every year, this kind of present is less popular among medics. EIZO breaks this taboo. This pin-up calendar shows absolutely every detail.

How do you rate this calendar? Is it over the top? Is this actually sexy? Or is it cold? Does it offer less opportunities for Photoshopping boring pin-ups? Would you like to feature on such a calendar for Kenya?

One reader on Ads of the World commented: "Someone at EZIO should suggest the model have a spinal check-up as her lumbar spine is hypomobile and it appears there is some anterior spur formation between L5-S1. She would be appreciative in being able to handle things before they become symptomatic." What's your take on this?

Anne Kiguta

Anne Kiguta, with mirror (picture adapted from KTN)
The pretty Anne Kiguta joined KTN as a news anchor last month, after her escapades at Hope FM and Capital FM. Well, I don't know why the girl used to be on radio, since she has not disappointed us on television so far. While other channels are broadcasting the World Cup, KTN is trying to keep its prime time viewers glued to their screens by having Anne Kiguta reading the news and being sexy. I have have actually forgotten to switch to the World Cup channels at 9.30 PM a couple of times now... Blame it on Anne Kiguta!

Anne Kiguta is also usually trending on Twitter in Kenya around 9 PM. Some of the comments are quite hilarious:
@kattiepearl: She would just be the perfect weather girl, forecasting all the hot and wet places.
@e_muchemi: Or "Msichana Nyumbani" instead of "Mke Nyumbani"
@Mwirigi: Before I fall for #AnneKiguta 1) Which church does she goes to? 2) How does she look in "civilian" clothes?
@disaster103: Am in bed #AnneKiguta in my head and Ghana on my mind...
But Anne Kiguta's biggest fan on Twitter seems to be our superb Miss Twitter Kenya contestant @nbad_kitty. Could Anne Kiguta actually be bi-sexual? Let's hope so.

Now, have a look at the picture. Yes, I know her outfit is ugly and she should do something about her hair. But it's fine, she has changed a lot since this picture was taken in May 2010. Yes, and on the positive side, I know she has big eyes which make her very attractive. And yes, I do know her legs are slim and sexy. And yes indeed, her smile can make you melt away... But please, have a look at one detail in the picture now. Did you notice the small mirror in front of her? So, that actually means she wants to look good, and she is doing it all for us! I never noticed such a mirror in front of Esther Arunga. Even Michael Oyier doesn't seem to have one of those.

Anne Kiguta, isn't she just lovely? Let me have your thoughts.

This Time for Africa!

Shakira Shakira!
Time for Africa,” a collaboration between global superstar Shakira and critically acclaimed South African music group Freshlyground, has been chosen as the Official Anthem of the upcoming 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. The song is an adaptation of a traditional soldiers' song named "Zangalewa".

Shakira's "Time for Africa" or "Waka Waka" is very upbeat and positive, and I like it! Shakira mixes languages beautifully.

Although most Kenyans will be supporting Brazil in this year's FIFA World Cup, Shakira is right, it's time for Africa! The continent now has huge potential. Africa, usually the poorest performing region in the world economy, is now likely to be among the best-performing. The private sector is the key driver and financial markets are opening up. Terms of trade have improved and growth is taking off.

Shakira is also involved in charity activities related to children's social justice. A beautiful voice, a good heart, and a great body, I love it!

So check out Shakira's "Waka Waka" for this year's FIFA World Cup and tell us what you think. It certainly got me moving! It also confirms that Shakira still has what it takes to prove to us that her hips don’t lie...

You’re a good soldier
Choosing your battles
Pick yourself up
And dust yourself off
Get back in the saddle
You’re on the front line
Everyone’s watching
You know it’s serious
We’re getting closer
This isn’t over
The pressure’s on; you feel it
But you got it all; believe it
When you fall, get up, oh oh
And if you fall, get up, eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
Cause this is Africa
Tsamina mina eh eh
Waka waka eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
This time for Africa
Listen to your god; this is our motto
Your time to shine
Don’t wait in line
Y vamos por todo
People are raising their expectations
Go on and feel it
This is your moment
No hesitation
Today’s your day
I feel it
You paved the way,
Believe it
If you get down
Get up oh, oh
When you get down,
Get up eh, eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
This time for Africa
Tsamina mina eh eh
Waka waka eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
Anawa aa
Tsamina mina eh eh
Waka waka eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
This time for Africa

    One-on-one with @Queen_Lucky, Miss Twitter Kenya 2010

    @Queen_Lucky, Miss Twitter Kenya 2010
    @RafikiKenya: Let me start by congratulating you again on being voted the first ever Miss Twitter Kenya. I found the competition to be a lot of fun, and I hope you enjoyed it too. What were your first feelings when you learned that you won?
    @Queen_Lucky: First off, thank you for the opportunity to participate in this competition! It introduced me to so many other Kenyans on Twitter to whom I thought never existed. I believed the Kenyan Twitter community was very small; I was shown otherwise. When I found out I won I was speechless, I couldn't believe it. I had checked the scores in the late evening and I was 150 behind. I had given up, so when I found out I had won, I was euphoric!!! Started celebrating immediately!

    Rafiki: When did you join Twitter and why?
    Lucky: I joined Twitter about a year and a half ago. As much as I love Facebook, it was getting full and I was out looking for the newest social network. Even though it took sometime to grow on me. I loved the concept from the beginning limited characters to type, very open, organized, minimal applications to clutter my notifications to my email. The more I tweeted, the funner it became. Also the idea of receiving newsfeeds from local news channels and international made it twice the fun.

    @Queen_Lucky smiling
    Rafiki: What do you mostly tweet about?
    Lucky: I mainly tweet about my life, the things I'm doing, my future endeavours, the people in my life... besides it says there before you tweet "whats on your mind", so I blurt out immediately! You will find me tweeting about topical issues as well when I find them relevant to my 1,800 followers and feel like we can relate and discuss.

    Rafiki: Who's your best friend and your worst enemy on Twitter?
    Lucky: Best friend on twitter... This is a tough one. There really isn't one. I will name my top 5 of course besides you (@RafikiKenya) @jeddylicious @crystalachieng @luckywandish @queenkazi @mmirinima Worst enemy... I actually do not have one! I am a friendly person, making enemies is very difficult for me.

    Rafiki: How do you see the Kenyan Twitterverse evolving in the near future?
    Lucky: Twitter is not being exploited to the full here in Kenya. It is great for advertising as I found out during my last event "Naija Nite". Although many have not caught on with its numerous advantages I believe in the future many people will join and cease the opportunity to market themselves or their business; or even just be themselves and have fun doing it.

    Rafiki: Apart from tweeting, what do you do?
    Lucky: I am the Head of Marketing and Advertising of a financial solutions service company in Nairobi. Along with that I am a student at USIU majoring in International Relations and a minor in Japanese and Marketing.

    Rafiki: Your profile picture attracted a lot of attention during the Miss Twitter Kenya competition, for several reasons I guess. Are you sure your boobies are for real?
    Lucky: OMG! Cannot believe you asked this. Yes, my breasts are 100% real! And I don't know why else it would attract attention... I found the picture very wholesome and simple however to others they saw the contrary.

    Rafiki: And at a certain point in the Miss Twitter Kenya competition, you wanted to change your profile picture. Why?
    Lucky: Haha. Too many comments regarding my breasts. I was not uncomfortable with the comments... I just didn't want people voting for me for the wrong reasons and I have a beautiful smile and eyes and none of that was captured in my profile picture for the competition. So I wanted to change, but then I realized it would spark too many questions so I declined.

    @Queen_Lucky, Miss Twitter Kenya 2010
    Rafiki: Which good cause would you like to take up during your reign as Miss Twitter Kenya?
    Lucky: I am still thinking about it, but I would like to do something to empower young people through debate and engage them in critical thinking. I am the Chairperson of the Kenya Debate Team, so I feel I may have something to offer in that area.

    Rafiki: Among other things, you won a night for two at the luxurious Tribe Hotel in Nairobi. Who will your King Lucky at Tribe Hotel?
    Lucky: This may disappoint a lot of people... but there will be NO King. I am actually going with my sister Jeddy. She was my campaign manager through out the competition and if I wanna have optimum fun there is no one else to share the experience with.

    Rafiki: Thanks for your time, your tweets and your smile.
    Lucky: ...awww... well THANK YOU for being the genius behind such a great idea! Looking forward to proving a difference and making a change in atleast one persons life.
