“The vision for the documentary was to highlight the power of art and culture, systemic issues facing the African diaspora and what can be done when you empower a community. The domino effect that comes from a positive perspective is clear in this picture and showcases what can be done when you change the narrative in your mind and its effect on your surroundings.” said Director and  writer of ‘MADARAKA’ Wael “L” Abou-Zaki 

Highlighting several themes including self-empowerment and entrepreneurship, the powerful film produced by One Vibe Africa and Zaki Rose is set to shape the Kenyan narrative locally and abroad. It will also document the beginnings and growth of One Vibe Africa as an international organization.

The Founder and Executive Director of One Vibe Africa, Simon Okelo says, “I hope that ‘MADARAKA’ will inspire the youth to think for themselves and work together to grow their communities. ‘MADARAKA’ is all about the African people, from the youth to the elders are strong people with an entrepreneurial spirit, which is not highlighted enough in the mainstream media. Images of poverty and requests for aid have become the norm. This is the notion the documentary strives to change.”

The documentary will take the audiences through Kenyan culture and current trends while showcasing a recording music studio founded by One Vibe Africa. ‘MADARAKA’ will also highlight workshops conducted by world-renowned artists and innovators to discuss topics related to Madaraka the documentary and concept, and the culture of Africans. Additionally, it will follow Simon as he displays key historical areas of Nairobi and Kisumu, highlighting his childhood experiences as well as some of the activities and projects carried out by One Vibe Africa for the community.
