Influenced by creative imagination, the Buea-resident prospective film-maker is quite optimistic about what he has weighty affection for. NexDim is concerned to know more about his career and prospects. Hope you enjoy this moment .

NEXDIM: Hello Kelly. It’s a pleasure to have you.

KELLY B: Thank You.

NEXDIM: Briefly introduce yourself.

KELLY B: I am Kelly Blaise Achu (Kelly B) ,a photographer and prospective movie producer based in Buea.

NEXDIM: When did you develop interest in photography?

KELLY B: You wouldn’t believe me. I actually developed interest in photography after viewing photographs taken by my mentor Em’kal.

 NEXDIM: A few years back we watched a couple of your videos as a rap artist. What was your drive to switch from music to photography or do you have any prospects in music?

KELLY B: As a rapper I wasn’t satisfied coz I didn’t express myself the way my photos do. I believe I can pass out a message easily through my photography.

NEXDIM: We had seen you affiliated to Chillen Muzic as music executive, later Fredash Modeling agency and finally freelancer. Why that navigation?

KELLY B: Well, while working with Chillen Muzic and Freddash Modeling Agency, I simply realized they had a different vision from what I had and it’s rigid to convince people to believe in your dreams rather than theirs. We still collaborate though.
