The other day, I got called
To a meeting
With some high end entrepreneurs
Had the solution to all gay African problems
Kenyans to begin with
Yes, an App
To meet other gays
But theirs was ‘better’
They went meeting the people tour
Kisumu. Mombasa. Nairobi.
Bought twinks coffee, and Java – did the whole live video thingi
Fake English accents.
Some faggot called me to tell me they wanted to see me
I am the person to talk to in Kenya
About gays. About Apps. About selling cheap merchandise
Told my GALCK broker – if they are not selling me a business idea, they can do all they want
Kenya does not need dating Apps
Or white folks using black influencers to sell cheap merchandise
Or to change the UNAIDS leadership
I/we refuse to be used anymore
We do not need more gay dating Apps.
We have dated. With or without them
Safely. Soundly. Securely.
Want to sell a merchandise?
Buy the gays booze, go to their bars, buy them drinks
Do Java, live-feed the croissants
Take photos – photos are important for marketing
Get on Grindr – check for dates – yes, because you not using your own bloody App
Who would have thought?
Yes, ma’faka I saw you ‘close to me’ on Grindr
What was it? 150m?
You have an App to sell.
Liiv on your own terms.
