Contemporary rapper Juliani is once again out to give back to the society by establishing an arts centre in Dandora estate.
The dreadlocked artiste says the centre’s main agenda will be to develop art into a paying career, as well as nurturing and supporting businesses. It will include a community radio station, recording studio, music school and office space.
“I want to give back and create a platform for promising and undiscovered talent. A place where we shall not only develop talents but build and incubate business through tailor-made professional training that shall revolutionise the Kenyan music industry. I have already secured a two-storey building in Dandora next to Nairobi river.” He told Word Is.
Juliani’s vision is to see the many unemployed youth who often resort to crime get empowered and transform Dandora to it’s former glory as a hip hop city.
“Eventually we seek to redefine brand Dandora into the hip-hop city it used to be. Art, tech and entrepreneurship are viable tools in reducing unemployment and crime among our youth. Through this platform, we will be able to transform a lot of young people in Dandora and Nairobi as a whole.” He added.
