Fascinator

If you know how to make something, you understand everything about it. You appreciate its logic, its beauty, its meaning and its value. You can pass on these pleasures and benefits to future generations.

There are nine thousand reasons why i can’t use this photo of the gaslight anthem for the purpose for which i took it. There are just as many reasons why, for some reason, i adore it.

I always seem to like the un-usables the best, even when their quality is not stellar. It’s the feeling i get, the “vibe.”  I know the flares and the grain and the shadow stuff is all bad here and makes for a low-quality “reject”.

Qwerty Love

Anto Neosoul is asking, Is there True Love on social media? Can you find Real Love on social media? Anto doesn’t think so in his latest new single Qwerty Love!

On the 8th of January, Anthony Neosoul took to the heart of Nairobi’s Metropolis at the Tom Mboya foundation, to shoot a new video for this song. Now he is out with ‘Qwerty Love’ whose video was shot in the heart of Nairobi CBD. Clearly he is on a crusade to tackle some of our relationship woes.

A first of its kind, the video shoot took the format of a flash mob. This was done in partnership with MNet, StockTown, Paragasha band and some of Kenya’s finest street dance crews like Titanz, Black Blingaz  and over 50 dancers who showed up to be featured in the video that tackles new age love fueled by tech gadgets. The effect was magnificent, bringing together large crowds.

The flash mob took place outside Alliance Francaise and Mr. Price Clothing Store on Tom Mboya Street. Just as expected, a flash mob is bound to bring Nairobi to a standstill. It was well responded to with a good number of the public taking part in the musical fun.

To break it down, the song speaks about finding true love online. The musician, doesn’t think that true love resides online. To him, this is an illusion. Highly influenced by new media and pop culture, people are living a lie. A Kenyan culture norm that needs addressing.
