Nyashinksi does not like airing out his personal life to the public. He is a man who makes silent moves and then we find out months later.
When I grow up, I want to be you Nyash, lucky you.
In case you have been living under a rock, he has joined the 'welcome to my channoo' squad. Nothing scripted just open, candid and real conversations.
His first guest was Sakaja Johnson and they talked about a lot. When he started Nyash said he enjoys real conversations and that is what his channel is all about.
Now we have the chance to try to understand what really goes on in his mind. Manz is too smart.
Just when Kleptomaniax was making serious musical moves and famous in these streets back in 2006, Nyanshnski up and left the 254.
"When we moved abroad, I had completely quit music. I was working back in the states as a truck driver. Even the way I have packed my car here guys have applauded my skill. I used to drive a lorry trying to survive. We relocated there as a whole family. The first two years I was Delaware then moved to Michigan.
That experience taught me a lot. Two things that were life-changing for me back there was one when I was here I was a star. People recognized me everywhere and we were doing what we loved. I moved from a place where I was known and getting a bit of favours here and there to a place where no one knows me. No special treatment and you must work because you have to eat."
Another major lesson he learned in those ten years he was away was having people around you and conversations are very important.
"That was coupled with the fact that I was used to having people around me to a lonely life of driving a truck. There you are alone for over 16 hours. You only stop to fuel, sleep, shower and use the bathroom. So you find your self enjoying small conversations with people you meet for five minutes at least it was away from that cage.
The lines on the road even become hypnotizing after a long distance and you look at them thinking this is my life. I just accepted that this is my life." Nyashinski added
But Nyash said he enjoyed living a normal life where no one knew him. He could walk in a mall, on the roads and be normal.
What made him come back to Kenya is that he was living a life that he felt he was not using his intelligence or exerting his passion and purpose. In fact, he is concerned that it is a reality many are not facing.
"So back in the states, my friend told me to just go in studio and exert that pressure as a lyricist. I did not have to release the sings. But I found myself listening to a beat, creating a song and then wanting to perfect it and then I want people to listen. That is how I found myself back into the music world and came back home." He revealed
Sakaja laughed and told him, when he came back he made the industry feel like nothing was going on in the music world because as he says, alicome na ubaya.
Moral of the story, people go through a lot to be where they are today, respect the hustle.
