Victoria Kimani and Avril may have snubbed Naiboi during the making of his first fan video but nobody can stop reggae. The talented and creative hitmaker has released a second video for his single ‘2 in 1’ to complete what has been a masterstroke.
In addition to the creativity behind the concept of making two videos for one song( ‘2 in 1’), Naiboi, by involving his fans, has also had to spend next to nothing to make the two viral videos. Part 1 is three weeks old and has been viewed over half a million times on YouTube.
“There was no budget. Most of the videos were sent to me via phone or email, and even for the editor, I just bought him lunch. I would say it was a zero budget song,” said Naiboi a while back.
According to Naiboi, his main idea was to have as many local artistes as possible so that all fans can come together in support of Kenyan music.
“It’s a good feeling to have my song trending, though unexpected because before I did the video, we had a conversation with Nyash and it was a concern that not many Kenyan songs were trending by then, and so I wanted as many artistes as possible to help push our music.”
Naiboi has involved even more Kenyan stars in the new video and a host of fans from around the world. Cool stuff!
