If you know anything about the Kenyan entertainment industry, then you would know that Big Kev is one of the names at the top of the list.
Big Kev is the founder of Tru Blaq Group, one of the biggest entertainment outfits to have handled some of the biggest brands in the country.
Unfortunately, he has been battling a resilient brain tumor since 2010; which has seen him have 14 tumors removed.
My Personal Experience With Big Kev
Fortunately, I got to meet Big Kev in early 2012 during the preparation of one of the most anticipated events of its time ‘Project ACE’ by Ace Cards Entertainment.
The event which was going to take place at an undisclosed mansion got Big Kev’s attention and for a long time, he had a rush in him which made him smile during the site seeing of the location.
I can remember his exact words, you could literally see the anticipation in his face when he said:
”Ask anyone in my team, they will tell you they haven’t seen me smile in a while, but today this event has just made me smile.”
Big Kev was so excited and appreciated the passion he saw in us that he ended up offering his services and equipment which would have cost us millions in Shilling to hire for free.
Sadly, even after the event was called off due to some miscommunication regarding the venue, Big Kev never left us out to hang dry, he went an extra mile to get us a number of activation deals even when he didn’t have to.
Today it saddens us to see a man who has been a blessing to many fight for his life year after year.
