DON’T EXPECT FLOWERS FROM ME ON YOUR FUNERAL
DR JEF LEADERSHIP ACADEMY (JLA) JOINS A SPIRITED EFFORT TO CONVERT YOUTH TALENT TO REVENUE PRODUCING ECONOMY.
Yes, I have made that decision consciously.
No expensive flowers from me on funerals.
Because you wouldn’t know that I brought them anyway.
I want you to have flowers from me when you are alive because you will at least know my effort and that I care.
Until now the lack of jobs and frustrations of talented youth, creative economy had remained just a good talk. .
Until Dr. Ezekiel Mutua (KFCB) decided it’s time to move from theories to practice.
Until Toussaint Duchess agreed to form partnership with # KFCB and I.
Until Teresa Blake Beaudoin partnered with TDE Entertainment to market Kenya youth talent.
Until Dr. Hon Jeff Kaluyu Leadership Academy (JLA) became a bridge to connecting Kenyan talent to consumers abroad.
Until then, the talent economy had remained anecdotally marketable.
Exceptionally talented youth often spiral to depression for not being able to translate their creativity to revenue.
Well, we see that and have heard the cries. We are working around the clock to change the situation.
Talent will no longer be a street affair or some pressure just to enjoy celebrityhood on paper .
Whether it is music, comedy, acting, dance and film, rest assured that we are working hard to find the correct market beyond the borders.
Remember creative economy is the 2nd GDP contributor in countries like Nigeria. And so Kenya can have it the same.
We are thankful that the right institutions back this effort and I am confident that I can deliver your flowers while you are still alive. Be patient and we will get there.
Today, I met Toussaint Duchess, (Lady T) CEO at TDE Entertainment/Broadway Extravaganza (Louisiana -US) & her partner in Film production, Teresa Beaudoin (TV Blake) from Texas-US.
Also on board was Madam Patricia, President of Liberia Communities in the US- Florida. We discussed the action plan for execution as we breathe life into this economic engine “in the making”.
That’s my order of flowers for you…while alive. Will need your support to make this happen.
