Long ago mother Africa was protected by 5 Ancient Spirits, each representing a pillar of our culture. Together they brought peace and prosperity to Africa.
Shujaa is known by many as the lion or animal spirit due to him taking a Lion’s appearance. He is the symbol of natural instinct, wisdom and leadership.Shujaa is the guardian of animal life. In the past, his leadership has brought peace to Africa.His appearance now is the first sign of hope.
Listen to his guidance Mzito.For he is a maker of Kings and Queens.
Ajaa is known as the spirit of land and nature. She is the source and the support system of all life.She is known as the core of the Ancient Spirits for her healing touch, her womb of life and her rage against those that harm her children. She is a symbol of fertility and motherhood.
Seek her favour Mzito and your light will multiply.
Shakka is the Spirit of the warrior.He takes the form of a shield, a common necessity for any warrior. Shakka symbolises the fighting spirit of Africa. The shield that protects the weak and a bastion of honour and justice.Spirit of unbreakable will. Skilled in combat and strategy, Shaka is the tip of the spear among the Ancient Spirits.
Train under him Mzito, grow in bravery, skill and will.
Mila is the Spirit of change. She symbolises growth and transformation. She brings forth true maturity. Mila is the cocoon of the Ancient Spirits. Through rights of passage, she pushes them from comfort to insight rebirth through metamorphosis. Innovation and progress are her second nature.
Put yourself in her cocoon Mzito, survive the rights of passage and you will evolve into your true self.
Riziki is the Spirit Rhythm. The Rhythm of life. His vibrations connect all of us whether through the earth, song or dance.Riziki is the great uniter among the Ancient Spirits. He mastered balance through stillness and is the force that keeps them united. He gives voice to all and allows one’s inner and outer systems to communicate.
Tune to the Vibration Mzito for Riziki brings harmony, unity, oneness.

What is the French Tech Ticket? It is a program where 70 startups from all over the world are selected and will join 41 startup incubators in France for a period of 12 Months to grow their companies and their products.
We are both honoured to not only represent Kenya and Africa in this program but the growing gaming industry in the continent. Due to this our team will be split working from both Lille, France and Nairobi, Kenya.
During this 12 month program, Weza Interactive Ent. will be incubated at Plaine Images. Which is a workspace for creativity and economic development dedicated to digital media and creative industries. It is an ecosystem for digital media composed of thriving startups and companies offering a vast array of skills.
We believe 2017 will be a game changer for us and the gaming industry in Kenya. A lot of great things are coming. The Awakening has begun and it began in Africa.
The time is now … no more wars against brothers and sisters, no more shall our hearts be filled with sadness, desperation and corruption. Rise up Africa and weep no more.
Open their eyes Mama Africa . Open the eyes of your children
Wake them up from the deep slumber
Let them see the vultures, hovering up in the sky
Patiently waiting, waiting for their corpses
Let them unite and reason
Let them embrace one another with warmth
Warmth of their creative ideas
Created in their own soil by their own hands
Let your children arise and dance
Dance to the greater heights of Kilimanjaro
Let them sing, sing of a future
A fearless future of consciousness,
A future of hope, a future of a proud Africa
By her children
