Gospel music remains to be the dominant genre in Kenya. So much that we have seen a couple of secular artists drop their tools of trade and pick up gospel instead. Is it that they noticed a profit “spark” or did they actually see a different holy “spark” as they say? We shall get to argue over this another day.
Today, we look at the gospel duo who make noise for all the good reasons, Kelele Takatifu in their new video “Mavuno”.
“I love those guys! I feel they were wise to let J. Blessing do the video since his reputation speaks volumes. It’s totally on point and the bit of acting is impressive,” a fan stated.
“I wish J.Blessing also focused on the set a bit more. I mean, the video quality is quite good, but that’s all! No directing at all! The routine is based on the song, yes, but does that mean it has to be drained out of all possible creativity?” another fan added.
“The video is typical! I hope these gospel video directors get more creative over time because they are becoming very predictable! “Utavuna ulichopanda…” [sings a part of the song] seems like the director just listened to a part of the song and decided tuta shoot video kwa shamba. I don’t like it,” said another.
Well the video is 6 days old now, and from the views people seem to have split opinions. It has gathered 585 views so far and hopefully the number will grow by the day. Even though opinions matter, they don’t become out right facts just because a couple of people seem to agree. Watch the video in the link below and get to share your thoughts too. Is the video a hit or miss?
