The Passport Experience international festival has announced its African debut in Nairobi on April 19.
KICC will host the conference, the first ever music, tech TV and film conference featuring guest speakers from some of the biggest brands in the world including Netflix and Roc Nation (Jay Z’s label).
Some of the Kenyan speakers at the conference include Sauti Sol, Kate Actress, Magix Enga and Eric Musyoka.
From Nigeria, there will be Kiddominant, the producer behind one of the biggest selling Afrobeat record of all time, “Fall” by Davido and Niyi Akinmolayan, director of Nollywood’s highest grossing film of all time “The Wedding Party 2.”
Patricia Kihoro, Martin Kimathi, Wangechi and Taio Tripper are set to moderate the multi-sectoral discussions.
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 three perspectives in this conversation.
“The American perspective, since they have done it best for years, the Nigerian perspective since their entertainment industry is booming and the Kenyan perspective since we have some successful individuals despite challenges.
“My hope is young people leave there with a new mindset and energy so they can succeed and improve the industries they’re passionate about and the country as a whole”.
