From a list of Kenya's most creative music videos to the possibility that the region's first ever BET nominees may not be there to witness the ceremony itself, yesterday was a whirlwind of news in the entertainment industry. Here's ten things you should know this morning of June 29th 2012:
1. It's unclear what exactly went down at the American embassy, but news is that Camp Mulla may just have to wait a little longer to get their visas. Problem is the BET Awards might already have taken place by then.
2. Octopizzo is a Kenyan-born and Kenyan-bred artiste who's defying the norm and doing what he does best...making good music and adding a creative flavour. Check out his latest video.
3. The Gold-rezzo relationship in the Big Brother House has been on the rocks,, so now can we say that it's finally over for good?
4. It's sad that as the world over celebrate the loss (or existence) of their great musicians, Kenya is left behind. Why don't we honour our own so elaborately?
5. Great news for movie lovers from the CBD's IMAX theatres... students have a flat rate offer that's here to stay!
6. There's a bountiful of creative videos in Kenya; we're listing what we think are the top 5
