Propelled by a missing smart phone, this thriller concerns the challenges encountered by the hip hop millennium generation in a composite Nairobi slum (Kibera and Mathare). The narrative, with nuanced spotlighting of development efforts in creative economy and reproductive health, is based upon a recent transmedia story that was devised by Shujaaz (Sheng for hero, champion), Nairobi’s Emmy-winning multimedia youth platform. “… by doing it, we showed it could be done. Jongo Love is all about possibility” Paul Ekuru, producer.
