    A few years ago, nobody thought as sacrilegious the day when a young Nairobi Christian would refer to God as ‘ Father wa Ma-sky ’. That is “Our Father in Heaven” in Sheng, and it is perfect religious parlance to a generation of Kenyans to whom the revered name ‘Jesus Christ’ is too old-school. He is simply ‘JC’. Welcome to the never-ending debate on the ever-mutating dialect that has survived numerous assassination attempts.

    Sheng reflects the semi-literacy of the new generation.

    oh really? semi literacy!!! dude sheng is part of Kenyan youth culture and those pushing Kenya's recent growth in previously unexploited fields such as arts,music,films,poetry,technology and the service industry is all due to the aggressive youth who you tout as semi illiterate. not to rant and rave but sheng ain't dying soon.
