About this project
Hello, My name is Jeffrey Johnson, I own KO Music Promotion & Management.
I am running this Kickstarter campaign for friends of mine who live in Nairobi, Kenya. SidneyTwal, L.O., and Croco(dile) are members of a young hip hop group called Young Blood Line.
I started speaking with the guys in the group over a year and a half ago while making posts in a music group we were all in on Facebook. Sidney and I soon struck up a great friendship, speaking on a nearly everyday basis. Talking about a range of topics including how our lives varied in our countries, but mostly about the music. A year ago Sidney told me that the group had recorded their first song and asked me to take a listen. I was immediately struck by what raw talent and potential they all had. The song was called “Wonderland.” He asked that I help spread the word about it and I did so gladly. Since they have released only two songs and some instrumentals. Recording and cost of recording is just far too expensive.
This is where I come in, I believe in these guys and their talent. They make their own beats and have big plans when it comes to the writing of their music. They are making a name for themselves in Nairobi and need our SUPPORT to take their message and music worldwide. This is about more then just creative good songs for people to listen to. They are making something for themselves in the face of stunning adversity.
So why a Kickstarer and what will it do for them? I started this Kickstarter because they asked for my help. I started this Kickstarter because they are something I believe in. I started this Kickstarter as a means to fuel the minds of creative individuals. Your contribution will help push these young men and open the right doors for them. They will be able not only to afford quality recording, but also make a professional quality music video that will help spread their name and message worldwide. They will be able to truly make their art. This will help them break out of their bindings and get their music out to a global audience. In return when things take off they will be able to help out their communities and may even be able to afford college.
Thank you for taking the time to read and consider funding. This means a lot to me, but will mean so much more to them. Please share this with friends and family and you can make the difference in the lives of a few young men.
Risks and challenges
The only foreseeable obstacles that may arise after funding are videographers and studios being unavailable or raising their prices. This would be unfortunate, but something we could overcome together. If this was the case, well then, they would now have the funding to buy their very own camera and do it themselves.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
