I had about 8 hours ahead of me, driving to Atlanta Georgia to attend the Kikuyu Diaspora Media Anniversary Event. As I cruised across America, I couldn’t help wonder, what is it about this radio, “Kikuyu Diaspora Media Radio” that makes everyone stop everything and go out of their way to attend it’s meetings? What is it that makes one take a whole week off work without pay and spend hours on road or flying just to be there? At some point while still on my cruise, I checked my phone and one of KDM presenters, Rachael Nga’e, aka figure 8 had posted a message: “Good evening KDM family, today we won’t have Katabe, see y’all in ATL”. At that point it hit me. I felt so overwhelmed by the tremendous amount of love that everyone has for Kikuyu Diaspora Media. I felt the weight and the might of this great event. Everything had stopped so that we could all attend this event. At that moment I realized how huge KDM had become, so much bigger than anyone us of. It’s a movement, a movement that cannot by stopped by anybody. A vision that was birthed, never to be stopped. They say don’t text under the wheel (please don’t do it), but I could not hold the emotions I was feeling inside. I had to bring it out at least some, because there was no way I could express everything I was feeling in a whatsapp message written behind the wheel. I wrote: “KDM here we come. Overwhelmed by this moment. KDM so huge I’m feeling it. Cruising across the States, all for KDM.”
