 Seif Kabelele:  What are your favourite memories?
Johnson Lujwangana:   My favorite memories are those I share with my family and closest friends. One of my recent fond memories was going out one nite to Maisha with Nuru Magram a.k.a Nuru the light & Martin and we stayed up till dawn. Also remember that day you (Seif kabelele) and Kahema Madafa picked me up and we had a ball enjoyin  beers and food at Richie Mziray and Cynthia Masasi's  crib. I basically enjoy every minute that I breath even when life sucks and am sad I still cherish those moments.
Seif Kabelele: What has been your greatest achievement so far?
Johnson Lujwangana:  My greatest achievement so far, well I don't really think I've achieved anything more than the regular person. I am most proud of being able to be considered TANZANIAN and people allowing me to work with them. I love when I am able to EARN someone's trust, the rest is in the future.
Seif Kabelele:  What is your greatest extravagance?
Johnson Lujwangana:  My greatest EXTRAVAGANCE, wow. Well am not the baller type, my money is usually very short and it comes and goes quickly. Am tryin to build a brand & concrete business module lakini my greatest indulgence has been on women. One time at SUE's RENDEZVOUS I spent $1,200 in one nite. Wasn't my money sorry I found it in the place. Google SUE's first, and another is a dinner date that cost me almost $380 after which the girl said she wasn't interested. Ouuuuch! UNLESS a woman says these three words, "I LIKE YOU" do not spend any cash for anything. Opposite of a bank, she has to show INTEREST before u spend MONEY.
Seif Kabelele: What values do you live by?
Johnson Lujwangana:  The values I live by are pretty simple, each day I wake up I have to accomplish something before my eyes close. Hard work, honesty and a bit of compassion for others goes a long way. I love my family and friends till the end.

Seif Kabelele:  If you could be an animal,which one would it be and why?
Johnson Lujwangana:  If I was an animal I think I'd become a LION or any other species like GORILLAS, CHIMPS where pologomy is kool and accepted. Well as long as you take care of your responsibilities. Or on the flip end I would wonna be a PENGUIN bcuz they keep the same MATE for life, these suckers don't cheat. Till death do them apart. I like extreme commitment but as long as it serves a purpose other than LOVE. Like makin money pamoja, owning businesses, raising up young OBAMAS. Things of that sort.
Seif Kabelele:  What do you dislike about yourself?
Johnson Lujwangana:  What do I dislike about MYSELF? Agggggggh maybe nothing. I have flaws but I learned how to embrace em. Like me and lateness, it's kool.

Seif Kabelele:  What do you dislike about others?
Johnson Lujwangana:  I don't really dislike anyone, I give everyone a fair chance to become acquainted and I just keep positive people around me
Seif Kabelele:  When and where are you happiest?
Johnson Lujwangana:   I am happiest chilling wit my nephews and being with my sister in Kinondoni. She's a great role model keeps me humble and always KEEPS it REAL with me. Also she's the only person on this EARTH that I won't argue with. Am jus happy chillin wit those ppl.


Seif Kabelele:  Which words or phrases do you most overuse?
Johnson Lujwangana:  Aggggh am usually verbally abusing people bcuz of my line of work so I dont think u wonna kno my repeated words or phrases. Lakini Mjing, Fala, STUPID, IDIOT all these things I use on a constant basis
