Short Story: “‘He Would Tweet His Death’ – On the Road to Fame” by Williams Magunga

Williams Magunga’s short story, details the final moment of the life a young man desperate to achieve fame in Nairobi. The story delicately portrays the main character of Philip as a man who’s obsession with becoming a famous rapper dictates every moment of his life. Magunga not only describes Philip in a vivid manner but simultaneously utilizes Philip’s view point to frame the lens in which the city of Nairobi is portrayed. The story ultimately questions the validity of fame and how it has become a virus that blinds people from viewing the world fully.
