HARRY KIMANI’S OPENS UP IN REHAB DOCUMENTARY
Singer Harry Kimani will open up and talk about his on-off-on-again-then-off-again days as a drug addict in a yet to be released docu-drama.
The shooting for the NACADA (National Campaign Against Drug Abuse) sponsored docu-drama titled Recovery Room, is at the editing phase.
Shot by Sinema Sisi Productions and directed by Betty Kathungu-Furet, it portrays Harry’s struggles to remain sober throughout his music career.
To give it an authentic feeling, Betty included real life interviews with him and Peter Mugane, his roommate during his stay at the Karen Treatment rehabilitation centre in Gilgil.
Other people who have already been interviewed include Victor Seii, who is Harry’s Manager, friend and current producer, entertainment writer Smitta, singer Debbie Asila, Makadem, rapper Abbas Kubaff, Kanda King and actress Jackie Nyaminde (Wilbroda) among others.
Professional advice is also given by Dr Gakunju, who is an addiction counsellor.
