From my point of view, a video without vixens is like food without source, or a song without beats. As different trends in the world change, and so music with the content that go with it. Back then, you would enjoy a video of a song by just focusing on the lyrical part of it but that seems to have been left with the aging class of music lovers.
Today, the biggest following of the music industry comes from the youths who are mostly interested in the visual part of the videos.
This has also changed the point of Vixens on featuring i the videos. Before then, girls would feature on music videos for free. It was all about being seen around celebrities and enjoying the trappings of association that come with it in the showbiz world. Now, the video vixen business is a money-spinner that has modelling agencies and freelance models making good returns from artistes and their managements.
It is not just about shaking the booty, video vixen business lately has more to do with choreography and creative acting, an art that has now seen fresh talent join the industry. Here are some of the top Kenyan classy video vixens to watch out for.
She is a 22-year-old who featured in top videos such as Khaligraph Jones’ Ngori. She loves cycling, swimming, listening to music and modelling. She has made appearances in Sangolo (Wyre featuring Quata), Mayonli Love (Masauti), Wanaona Haya and (Country Boy featuring Khaligraph Jones) among others.
