ken oloo’s filamujuani
Ken is a fearless influencer I’m proud to call friend.
When working in Uganda several years back, he casually took a photo of a street kid without clothes. That photo made the rounds and a few weeks later, the kid had decent clothes to cover his body.
On seeing how that single photo transformed a life, he quickly quit his job, returned to Kenya, got an internship at Nairobi Chapel and while there, met with a filmmaker who pointed him to the US for a 13-month filmmaking apprenticeship.
Today, through his company Filamujuani, Ken is teaching kids in Kibera how to tell their own stories through film. They’ve worked on a TV series called ‘Zuki’ which they plan to screen in Kibera soon. Charges will be 3/- and 5/- for VIP.
Ken humbles me.
