Dans les bacs: Life As A Multiple-SIM Card

Estino’s “Mon Telephone” music album warns against marking time in life.

To some people, challenges are speedbrakes to progress. For others, challenges help to propel them to higher heights. Yet for another group, they simply ignore challenges and move on with their lives. Budding Bikutsi artiste, “Estino la femme dynamique,” 30, whose real name is Esther Njuh, belongs to the last category.

Her pioneer musical album entitled “Mon Telephone” (My Telephone), talks about a cellular phone with multiple SIM cards connected to different networks. “In case of problems, you can replace any operator’s SIM card with another,” explains Estino. “I don’t live my life by focussing on one thing. If someone promises to assist me and doesn’t do it, I move on. Life is like a cellular phone whose SIM card can be replaced at anytime because there are other possibilities,” she underscores.

“La vie continue” tells the story of a woman who is regularly abused by a man. He keeps late nights only to return home to beat up the wife. “No matter the challenges you face, life must continue. Just push on and not look back at your failures. If you keep focusing on the past, you will remain stuck on the same spot,” Estino cautions.
