NAMIBIAN ARTIST CHIKUNE

Chikune is an Afro-jazz musician from Namibia. She recently got crowned the Best Female Artist in Southern Africa at the Afrima awards. I did a bit back and forth with her manager/producer and settled on the kind of image to give her. I shot and directed the shoot as usual,in the in studio and on location..
The only challange I encountered was a major collision between swahili and her mothertoung.. an innocent and very commonly used swahili word “nini” is super vulger in her language. We kept busting in laughter each time any of the crew used the word, the stylist and MUA and assistant.. the photo where she is holding the flower and laughing histerically i used the word nini as i was directing the pose.

We did a lot of photos here are few of them.
