First we had “Meet: Eva”

Now this beauty, there’s no fantastic story behind me meeting her really. One day I went on Instagram and noticed I had a new follower.

Me opening her profile was like:

I Kid you NOT. I had to wonder if it was a accident follow or something. This was when I was in St Kitts for the Christmas Vacay, so I went DOWNN IN THE DMMMMMMM and you know inquired if she wanted to be the Kid’s canvas for a shoot, you know?

Me waiting for a reply:

Then my phone went off and I opened that so fast and she was all so excited and said she loved my work and all that. I legit stared at the reply for a good 5 minutes tbh.

This was me at this point:

The sad thing was, by the time I was gonna be back in Antigua she would have been already gone. However, she said she was coming in easter, so I waited !

 * Fast Forwards *

So now it’s easter vacation and I get a messsage saying “I’ll be home at this said date”

Me:

So I sent her the ideas I had and also told her she would be the first video also I will be doing for this season. The shoot was a BREEZEEEE, we did it at her house and she followed instructions very well. Well you guys saw the mini video & shots but if you didn’t here they are.

Next we had “Meet: Kareem”

So, I didn’t know Kareem till he added me on snapchat tbh and usually I can look at folks and see if they have potential to do something great as i can be VERY Picky.

From day one, watching this guy’s snaps I was like

I was like …..this guy really think hes IT enit.

This was basically him….everyday :

Anyways, so I had a concept in mind, mainly because the ladies always cussin saying they never got anything geared towards them etc. So I geared a shoot entirely around “Something for the ladies” and I thought he was the perfect person to use.

So I contacted him about it and he was all down for the idea, I let him know exactly what the concept was about and to let him know what may happen after I release the visuals.

Which was Basically this:

He still agreed, so I was like great! Ironically it was around his birthday when I wanted to do the shoot and he would have been at the verandah, so I pulled some strings and we did the shoot up there.

The struggle was real as I went to a few of my whatsapp contacts asking “What can a guy eat that would make you feel a type a way”

I got answers such as peach, ice cream, pineapple and one I wont disclose on here *Sides eye sequoyah*  I heard all the answers but I still wanted something more impactful, suddenly a light bulb went off in my head and well…..

What I saw in my head was like:

Mango.gif

Mango it was! #Supportlocallll

Oh yeah! Did I say Jamal and Latoya #Couplegoals tagged along for the shoot? Well yeah they did ! Had loads of fun. When we arrived I outlined the different scenes that I was going to be taking etc and we went ahead with the shoot.

After all the scenes was completed we then had….

……………………………….The Mango Scene *cue dramatic music*

Too our surprised apparently, the mango we got wasn’t sweet at all but I told him to fake it as much as possible and to dig into it like……..OKAY.

6600+ Views on facebook 1400+ and counting on facebook the video and photoshoot was a success! Up to this day I’m still being approached about it and all of a sudden alot of girls now want to be a Mango when they grow up.

Now we have KidKlip #1 “Don’t let it get to your head”

Since I got my new camera/ equipment I hadn’t done any new self portraits and I had a message in my head I wanted to portray based on things that I’ve seen happened to folks I once knew.

 

I wanted to portray what would happen if you allowed “fame” or “power” to get in your head and change you. I thought about it for a while and I got the concept down packed. I wanted the video to be very raw, wanted everyone to get inside my head for a bit.

The video would start off very easy and calm, representing the innocence before fame or in my case being well known, it would suddenly take a twist when I start feeling myself and forgetting who I am or where I came from. Being fed with compliments and all these nice words would make me feel like I’m a god and I’d become this completely different person. First I’ll be tripping about it but then I’ll learn to love it and slowly embrace it and become almost unrecognizable.

I constantly say, everything I do has a backstory, only if you ask me I’d tell you. Otherwise, I’ll leave it up to you to come up with your own meaning behind the images or videos I release.
