High School Nicknames

Today I happened to meet a High School buddy after more than 2 decades. I can say that 90% of all students in our High School had a nickname.

The choice of name was arrived at via various traits of the subject. This particular guy’s nickname was SPACE why? The niggar was over 6 Feet Tall, so they used to say he could see far off galaxies.

There was another guy who was nicknamed KANUNGA this nigger would fart in the afternoon and the whole class would be unlivable for the next 1 hour. He had the genes of a Skunk.

Another lad was nicked *INTERCOOLER for his special ability of drinking steaming kerosene laced tea or black coffee. The nigga had no nerve endings in his mouth and would quickly down tea and get a refill. Those days Pajero V6, 2800cc & 3000cc had the Intercooler label on it side. The SUV was a beast of its day.

There was yet another youngster nicked SNOW due to his FAST mode of talking. The nigga was from Naivasha and spoke so fast that all you heard was the last word. SNOW was a 90s rapper who was famous for the song INFORMER

Hehe, enyewe umenipeleka furthest.

Kuna majina mtu akikuita ukiwa kwa streets unajua tu huyo ni msee wa kitambo na anakujua fiti sana. Kama mimi many years ago nikiwa under 14 hadi 18 nilikuwa na nickname, team mates na wasee grao walikuwa wananiita Diperiro. Nikiwa mtaa place nili growia ama tao niskie msee ameniita dipesh najua huyo ni nani bila hata kuangalia nyuma ama sides kumsaka. Nilikuwa na majina kama seedorf juu ya jazi fulani nilikuwa nadiunga ya blue na black…nilikuwa na nicknames mingi kadha hapa na pale.

You see I’m a bundus bred descendant with a very thick vernacular accent from that ka DEB Pry school. When I landed in Highschool I bumped into a culture shock, I Couldn’t manage to speak swahili or engrisch properly without spicing it up with ekegusii within.
So I was only fluent in my mind but when they came out it was disastrous. I then swore not to speak either of the two official languages but my very fluent Chinese.
There was that ka tag ka kupeanwa ukiwa umeongea vernacular (we called it DISK), if anyone speaks vernacular, they were handed. Then the class monitor would record whomever who was handed during the day. Kalikuwa kanashinda na mmi all thru mpaka jioni coz I was shit scared of humiliation that came with me speaking swahili or ngoso. That’s how I earned my title.
