Tibim has been one of the most used phrases during this electioneering period. First coined by former SONU Chairman and current Embakasi East MP Babu Owino, the two phrases (Tibim and Tialala) went to be popularized in a song by Eng. Onyi Jalamo.

The hit song has now become the official campaign anthem of National Super Alliance (NASA). But what’s the meaning of the name ‘tibim’ and is it in anyway associated with devil worshiping? According to Dr Mumbi, who runs her show on youtube, Tibim means praise the devil.

Obviously a Jubilee supporter, Dr Mumbi claims that Tialala on the other hand means the goddess of war. Interestingly, Mumbi, or Dr Mumbi if you will, basis her research purely on google! Further betraying her political allegiance, Mumbi states that this is an election between Christians (meaning Jubilee supporters) and idol worshippers (meaning NASA supporters).

I took some time to research, like Dr Mumbi, on the real meaning of Tibim on google. The Horoscope and Numerology explanation of TIBIM is:




With a name number 8, you’re administering planet is Saturn. Companions respect you since you are persevering, a driven individual with moderate yet certain advantages. surprising focus and benevolence for a chose or target. In the event that you get to be affluent, you are fiscally liberal. You are exceptionally equipped in your general vicinity of work, you are an ace of things who regularly observes the greater and longterm picture of things. You like flawlessness, additionally get a kick out of the chance to unwind and appreciate life as it comes.

Tialala seems to be a non-existent word, atleast on google. The closest match to Tialala was Tiala.

Tiala, according to sevenreflections.com means:

You like to control everyone within your influence, to shape things to your own liking. If positive, you develop high spirituality, as you have a God’s protection. You are sensitive, affectionate, imaginative and cooperative, spiritually aware and prone to self-sacrifice. You can keep secrets and are a good diplomat. You may have healing and psychic powers.You are intuitive and might be interested in the arts, drama or science.

The originator of the two phrases had this to say when asked the meaning of Tibim and Tialala:

“After finishing prayers you say ‘Tibim’ and the devil comes out running. In the political life, it means a political revolution,” Paula Ongidi popularly known as Babu Owino explained.

    Meaning of Tibim and Tialala.
    One Inch of the dictums in linguistics is Tha ‘words are arbitrary symbols.’ You need not go far fishing for the meaning of a word. Just observe what the user is doing with it.

    A word can have multiple meanings in one language or even in several languages. Of your name means devil in one language and King in your language, keep to your context and ignore disenchanted detractors.

    For Babu Owinos ‘tibim’ and ‘tialala’ get the meaning of the terms is n ‘ Tholuo’ not in Egyptian, Latin, Hebrew, Greek, French or English languages. Get rid of the colonial mentality.

    Tibim and Tialala are actually luo words. Tibim – ‘impact’ and Tialala – ‘explosion’. They are idiomatic expressions.
