The first time I heard Siaji Otieno aka The Kikombe speaking I was blown away as I knew without a doubt that I had to bring him on the podcast. Siaji has a voice made for airwaves, eyes that can capture beauty at any angle or depth, and he can tell a story like the greats. This is a beautiful migrant journey that includes Eastern African countries, similarities between university systems in Anglo-Eastern and Western Africa, journalism influences, Thai connections, and documenting our lives. 

Siaji made me want to travel to Somalia, Tanzania, and Thailand, or at least eat food from those places. Siaji was greatly inspired by the works of the late Ken Saro-Wiwa. Sometimes, we may feel that our work isn't being felt or seen, meanwhile, it's inspiring people miles away to do great. Never give up!

The Kikombe has to be back for more!
