Tunahama (tena)

Hey guys,

First of I want to thank you for the support and encouragement each and every one of you has shown by visiting this blog.

And as with all things, there comes a time when change has to occur.

I have gotten my own ka-plot somewhere on the internet. Hii mambo ya kukodi tumeacha.

Therefore from now on, all the posts will be at kevdanative.com.

Please adjust your google reader and rss feeds accordingly.

Baraka zinaendelea tu kuingia polepole.

Thanks you.

Tupatane mbele.



So I attended this month’s Wamathai Poetry gig although I got in a bit late. Enjoyed myself quite a bit.

The performances were quite nice.

Herein are the pics I managed to get. Again I went with Black and white with a bit of a grainy feel on some pics. Tell me what you think in the comment section below.

In other news, this is what Kenya Paraffin Lamps and Candles reduced me to most of the weekend.

I’ve taken forever to upload this post but finally here we are.

Still have no words to describe how awesome this concert was. Hopefully the 90 pictures in here will help.

We are still using the slide show feature but I’m trying out a new plugin so we have a gallery below. Clck on 1 pic and enjoy the rest.

Enjoy and don’t forget to comment and share.



Sights of the Safaricom 7s

There is so much more I wanted to do with this post but I was a little late in applying for a media pass so I couldn’t get pitch side access.

From where I was seating this was the result.

BTW, there are quite a number of tweeps here. And a few wannabe tusker commercials.

As always, the first place holder is a slideshow.

All That Jazz 4: The Pictures

I love music and I love photography. I thank God that I’m able to combine the two things that I love.

That statement explains why I do a lot of concert photography.

When I was thinking of a theme for this shoot/post, I came across a Jazz album cover in black and white and seeing that this is my favourite style currently, it really intrigued me. Therefore I decided to go with that as a theme.

Check it out and please give me your feedback. It is always appreciated.

P.s: I met @jayawinjaya yesterday. Kuwa starstruck nayo? Hehehehe

Now Playing: Wanjiru – Patricia Kihoro & Kevin Mbugua

Kinanda Arts Fest 9: The pictures


Yesterday was the most fun I’ve had in a long time. It was the return of the Kinanda Arts Fest after a one month hiatus.

A big thank you to everyone who showed up from #TeamKinanda.

Also for everyone who took time to stop by the #Wanadamu desk and sign up. Now enough of the rumbling, lets move to the pictures.

P.s:- The first set of pics is a slide show.
