What drum magazine has in October

Live the life and win!
DRUM brings you two great competitions and loads of exciting prizes. Top of the list is a brand-new, luxury Mercedes-Benz C-Class. You can also win a wardrobe makeover and shopping vouchers. But that’s not all – we are giving away 15 heavenly pampering sessions at a top Nairobi spa. Find details in the latest issue of DRUM, on sale now.

Iddi Achieng: Queen of Hearts
DRUM’s cover story this month is the Afro-fusion sensation Iddi Achieng. A woman of many talents, Iddi has achieved great things in music, social activism and in her personal life – and she is still aiming higher. Be inspired by her rhythm and heart.

DRUM style
Start spreading the news – the best of New York Fashion Week can be found in this month’s DRUM, hot off the catwalks of the Big Apple. We also keep you posted on the latest fashion trends as spotted on Hollywood’s red carpets, as well as our local streets and sidewalks.

Sheila bikini moment
The beautiful singer and radio and TV presenter Sheila Mwanyigha speaks to DRUM. ‘I had been told that you had to be a size eight to wear a bikini. I have never been a size eight and I never will be, so I wore that bikini for me,’ she says about her sensational video.

Leonard Mambo: King of radio
Radio legend Leonard Mambo Mbotela has become an institution on our airwaves. He has been around for so long that we think we know him inside out. But DRUM’s interview with him contains a few surprises! Check it out.

The Kenyattas
As Kenya pays tribute to its founding father this month, DRUM delved into the archives to bring you a rare photograph of the Kenyatta family, taken just days before the death of Mzee Jomo Kenyatta in 1978. And when the Kenyatta family recently commemorated the 30th anniversary of the former president’s death, DRUM was there to capture the moment.

Larry Asego and Jalang’o
New kids on the radio block Larry Asego and Jalang’o certainly have big mouths and strong opinions! That’s why we love to wake up to their early morning chatter. They spill their guts in DRUM.

Bootylicious diva
BeyoncĂ© has come a long way since her Destiny’s Child days. She is now one of the most powerful celebrities in the world, and about to release her third solo album. Find out why she is simply irreplaceable.

Knockout Kobi
Besides being one of our brightest new TV stars, Kobi Kihara has a terrific sense of style. She got the chance to release her inner tomboy the day she modelled for DRUM.
