K Nel Speaks About His MPigs movie Project
When the Kenyan members of parliament asked for salary increment, one artist who aired out his opinion was K-Nel, who immediately released a track titled "MPIGS" (Members Of Parliament Implementing Greedy Tactics).
The song went viral and spread fast via the social network, receiving radio play across East Africa and on online radio stations. K-Nel wanted to do more. He had the vision of letting the voices of those oppressed by the system air our their opinion on the subject matter. He announced the idea of releasing an independent Minifilm project under the same title. Supported by Swahili Studios/ follow focus production and with Georges Mboya as the executive film director and editor, K-Nel's film script was executed.
The world is looking forward to June 1 when the entire project will be released. Until then, here is the official trailer edited by Georges Mboya. Say no to greed and support the movement. Activist Boniface Mwangi will also be featured in the film project.
K Nel spoke to Hot Secrets about the movie project.
What inspired the projectt?
What inspired me was the people's pain and frustrations by the MPs call asking for more money. It's like the moment they stepped into parliament, they forgot about the people and focused on their pockets.
Have you had any politician contact you about it?
I haven't had any contact with any of these MPs asking for more money like my Githunuguri representative, but i would like to.
What has been the response to the video and single this far?
The response is beyond what I was even expecting. I'm very happy to know that my voice has been heard. The messages I get from people everywhere even as far as America, Europe, Asia, Africa are heartbreaking.
Anything else you would like to add?
What I would like to add is, that God is great. and that you about to witness the best of me.
