Some Things | Vol. 44: The Ones Who Keep Walking
“You have to know where you’re from, to know where you’re going.” Yeni Kuti
This week we’re celebrating the incredible talent igniting collective progress in Africa that we were fortunate to work with when creating our latest Something™ Originals film The Ones Who Keep Walking.
Directed by Forbes 30 under 30 film maker Amarachi Nwosu & presented by Johnnie Walker, the film showcases inspiring stories of the creators & collectives who are turning the attention of the world to Africa.
Through never before heard stories, beautiful conceptual scenes & in-depth conversations we gain an insight into how fresh creative energy, sheer determination & a pioneering spirit is bringing authentic African expression to the world.
More than 200 people across 13 countries helped bring our concept to life including global music sensation CKay, Rapper & Songwriter Sampa The Great, Artist manager & businesswoman Bose Ogulu (Aka Mama Burna) & award winning fashion designer Loza Maléombho.
The Ones Who Keep Walking is being broadcast through a partnership across Africa with DSTV channels & you can watch it for a limited time here.
