    Moos my dear brother, you just do not know how highly happy we become hear in Zimbabwe when you chain to us these benga hits from Kenya. You take our minds back to the bush into into the 1970s when we were fighting a guerrilla war for independence from colonial rule. We had a dance we called mujiba that we would embark on when dancing to the benga music tunes. Its so good. I wish I could dance so that you see for yourself, especially when we are 2 or 3, dancing in unison. The only missing thing will be our sub machine guns, but we would take an umbrellas to imitate the guns, then we dance for you to enjoy, holding the umbrellas. Brother Moos, continue chaining as much Benga as you can unearth. Thank you very much. By the way, compliments for the new season Mr Moos.
