NEWS (KENYA): This is Why University Students in the US Could Soon Be Studying Juliani's Music

There are several ways you can prove that you’re making it in the music industry, but Juliani may just have set a new precedent for making it in the game.

And that’s because Prof. Mwenda Ntarangwi, an associate professor of anthropology at Calvin College has decided to pen an intricate study of Juliani’s music and the impact it has on the society.

The academic book titled ‘The Street is My Pulpit’ is scheduled to come out in 2016 and will be published by the University of Illinois Press.

Here are some of the reviews the book has received from other famous authors;

"A remarkably imaginative and personalized approach to popular music and youth culture, which sheds fascinating light on Kenya's changing culture, history, politics and especially Christianity."--Paul Gifford, author of Christianity, Politics, and Public Life in Kenya

"A very provocative, fascinating, even entertaining peek into the youthful ferment under way in African Christianity."--Emmanuel Katongole, author of The Sacrifice of Africa: A Political Theology for Africa

"Reading The Street Is My Pulpit is refreshing in diverse ways. It is a lesson on the intersection between creativity and social media in Africa, a continent that is reaping the benefits of information technologies in fundamental ways. The book is also a journey into ethnographic research in the digital age."--Kimani Njogu, author of Youth and Peaceful Elections in Kenya
