Black People With Asperger's Syndrome: One Reason Why I Make Music

Yesterday, I went through my mind wondering exactly why I decided to make music. Why am I killing myself to get where I want to be?

Since the team was conceived, the cricketers have gained a huge following; for both prowess and an ability to use cricket for social awareness (women's issues, HIV/AIDS) - as well as empowering the youth in their country. Hailing from the Laikipia region of Kenya, the semi-nomadic cattle herders bring a vibrancy to the sport; choosing to wear traditional Maasai attire and body…
