International festival Passport Experience announced today that they will finally make their Africa debut in Nairobi with a first-ever Music, TV/Film & Tech conference.
The creator of the brand, Kenyan born international, DJ Fully Focus, said:
I’m a firm believe that self-education is the key to lasting success so the idea is to have 3 perspectives in this conversation. The American perspective, since they have done it best for years, the Nigerian perspective since their entertainment industry is booming & the Kenyan perspective since we have some successful individuals despite challenges. My hope is young people leave there with a new mindset & energy so they can succeed & improve the industries they’re passionate about & the country as a whole
Guest speakers from some of the biggest brands in the world, namely Netflix, Roc Nation (Jay-Z’s label) Ancestry, & Kenya’s E.Citizen.
Plus our very own superstars Sauti Sol, Kate Actress, C.S. Mucheru, Magix Enga, and Eric Musyoka. From Nigeria, Kiddominant, producer of biggest selling Afrobeat record of all time& Niyi Akinmolayan, director of Nollywood’s highest grossing film of all time “The Wedding Party 2”.
