Osborne Macharia, the photographer renowned for his really unique and incredible work, is back with another one.
A few months ago he gave us ‘Nyanye’, and now he has returned with ‘Kabangu’.
He describes the project on his blog as follows,
“Watchmen by night, hip hop heads by day. This is the story of 4 gentlemen in the heart of Kariobangi (one of Nairobi’s informal settlements) who call themselves Kabangu. A group of real hip hop heads from the 80’s who meet up regularly to educate and mentor upcoming young talent venturing out into the hip hop industry. They teach them on values such as peace, equality, prosperity and social justice.
Little is known about them till now….”
