Kiswahili phrase of the day

Tulijenga mji huu kwa rock-and-roll

Translation: We built this city on Rock-and-Roll


  1. I’m gonna so start using that. It’ll come out some like…. “tulll… umm….. ROCK AND ROLL!”

  2. I should have given the translation:
    “We built this city on rock and roll”

    I came up with this yesterday during language class, and our teacher was rolling on the floor in laughter. Not because he knew the song.

  3. Oh the joys of language learning. I can hardly wait to start my lessons soon.
