GINX

GINX SUPPORTED BY UWEZO AWARENESS ORGANIZATION IS CHANGING KOROGOCHO THROUGH MUSIC!

Ali Roba aka Jah Fire and Antony Kigera aka Zimbo are two of the most promising artists from Korogocho slums in Nairobi. They are from two different villages in Korogocho slums which were in constant conflict. Both are from different religions; Christian and Islam. They met during a talent search organized by Uwezo Awareness Organization and formed a bond due to their shared passion for music and social change.

This made them from the group GINX which stands for Ghetto Inbox. They recorded their first hit ‘Mabeast’ which talks about extra-judicial killings and became an overnight sensation followed by their most recent hit ‘Niko Kwa Base’ that is enjoying good airplay and has been nominated for Best Song 2014 in the KOCH MUSIC AWARDS. They have also united their various villages and there is no longer animosity. They have formed a group ‘Ghetto High School’ which seeks to counsel and sensitize other youth towards transforming them from crime to better livelihoods. They are set to become the next superstars.  A film about GINX can be seen here: http://youtu.be/0yGtW6cCTEo
