A chance to experience my favourite musicians on one stage was not to be missed. Not even with the rain. Not even with the Friday evening traffic. Not even with the fever that I had.
I remember this day quite clearly: it was Saturday 17th October 2009; there was an Oliver Mutukudzi concert going down at Bomas and the JAB 82 launch at GoDown Arts Centre; I was torn between the two and I’m glad I made the better choice. JAB’s sound was still relatively new in a country where many forms of Benga dominated the airwaves, so their fan base was small, but very dedicated. Actually, the concert felt more like a gathering of friends of the JAB lead members, Jim Chuchu, Bildad Selanga and Daniel Muli.
One of the things I love about photography is the ability to combine it with travel, which is another of my passions. So when I was told about the opportunity to travel to Nanyuki and shoot for Goshen Acquisition’s investment brief, I was super elated. Plus, there was the opportunity to put the Phantom 2 to work. I was like ‘Let’s do this!’
