Nimoh Futuristic Impressive so w@s ua marketin strategy ?
How do u manage to get the music to the capital for airplay considerin
ua from Mombasa?
Blackfella TheBigfella Mombasa is my Home but i am currently staying in Nairobi. I do alot of Social networking, mostly online marketing. I also travel alot so i get to meet so many people and i marketmy self in the process. I also belive in talking to everyone for opinion without judging.
Nimoh Futuristic So livivin in the two towns??msa n nairobi..tell me
w@differences n simmilarities av u noted in the Hiphop industry
between the two
Blackfella TheBigfella I belive as an artist you need different environments to be at a certain state of mind and to get different outcomes. Mombasa has alot of tallent and so does Nairobi. What makes it defer is the Day to day life, shengs slangs, culture and beliefs. Advantage wise, nairobi is top. This is because Nai is the capital of everything so you are guränteed to meet everyone and
everything is available
Blackfella TheBigfella Also alot of people invest wisely in the music business than Mombasa.
Nimoh Futuristic Nyc...so tell me abt ua video ..the concept behind it n w@ u workin on @ the moment?
Blackfella TheBigfella "ONCE TOLD" video was directed by Brian kyallo and the (i am the future) crew. It was shot in the Ganjoni area of mombasa, this was so as to catch the coastal feeling and its achitecture. The video shoot was graced by coast Astists Fikra teule, Hustla jay , Producer N.J.E, masella and some beautiful babes......lol http://www.youtube.com/fellayo www.youtube.com
Share your videos with friends, family, and the world
Nimoh Futuristic Nyc!
Blackfella TheBigfella The initial plan was to do it on top of bima tower so as to catch the whole of mombasa but its was so windy up their and no bariers. 16 floors was too high for every one, so we opted for Ufuoni records roof top and some shots in a Tuk Tuk.
Nimoh Futuristic W@ project r u workin on at the moment??
Blackfella TheBigfella Working on my 1st album, also done new collaborations with new artists eg. Enkori, Nafsi Huru...., got featured in a soon to come mixtape by PointBlank, Checkmate, Man Njoroo, Bab-sule and Nafsi Huru produced by Mojay of Audio Kusini Working on the next video for the single "I Know" and looking foward to working with more artists from different genres and orígin.
Nimoh Futuristic W@ do u think the HipHop community shuld do to
make corporate world embrace it?
Blackfella TheBigfella Be more business minded and goal driven, investwisely to get good hold of the right market, Stop sidelining çourselves and feel as if we are not wanted or supposed to be doing what we do best. Sale our products in more professional way and support each other. Nothing is imposible, HipHop is gaining its respect back when it comes to corporate industry.
Nimoh Futuristic Coool,wuld u say music run in the fam coz ua sista is a Femcee too:)w@ do u do other than music?
Blackfella TheBigfella Anything can be sold for the right price. Its time we exausted the other side of business in Art.
Blackfella TheBigfella Well, u can say so. She is a good upcoming female rapper and she is getting better. Other than music, i am a young entreprenuar/ businessman. Deal with Scrap metal and PA sound. Also a student of business and IT
