Strathmore University lecturer surprises students with a question based on a US hip hop song

– The fourth year students were instructed to explain dangers of consumerism as per Kendrick Lamar’s song –Vanity Slave

Strathmore University students were surprised to see a compulsory exam question derived from an American hip hop song.

The question required students to explain three dangers of consumerism, a topic that Kendrick Lamar talked about in his song –Vanity Slave.

“In the words of Kendrick Lamar (popular rapper of the good kid, m.a.a.d city fame), ‘If you get your first big cheque and you cop before you buy a house. You’re a vanity slave.’ In the song, Vanity Slave, Mr. Lamar speaks openly about mindless consumerism. Explain three dangers of consumerism,” read the question.

The Business Ethics end of semester exam was done on Monday, July 11, by fourth year students studying finance, actuarial science and financial economics.

I would love to be in that class...anyway you don't need to know the song to answer the question, if you know about consumerism you're good.

Sio walokole. Vijana sasa ni nyimbo za mapenzi tu. Zenye ujumbe tofauti hapana.

amtu yoyote ambae ako na akili timamu hata kama hasomei mambo ya biashara/uchumi anajua hilo swali ni self sufficient. hauhitaji kujua hio nyimbo wala hauhitaji kumjua ata huyo kendric larmar, kitu unachohitaji kujua ni consumerism ambayo lazma walifundishwa, hio story nyengine ni mwalimu anajaribu ku engage na generation ya vijana na pia anaweka na pia anaweka hilo swali into perspective....

kuna neno flani la kiswahili nimelisaha, nafkiri ni tamthilia, hio ndo huyo mwalimu amefanya hapo, na amepeana hiyo lyrics ndogo hapo ambayo inajieleza yenyewe bila kuhitaji mtahiniwa awe mwanamziki au shabiki, anaweza jibu swali
