Tired Feet, is the name of the song that Jo-1 wrote about 15 years ago. The message is one of hope and encouragement where when someone literally has tired feet, they can decide to ‘get up’ and dance again.
The music video gives a glimpse into some of the struggles that people may have had during covid-19; poverty, depression, alcohol abuse and relationship challenges. It is a heartfelt music video, different from the dance-heavy music videos that we are used to seeing from Jo-1.
Tired Feet was produced at Truth Fire Studios in Nairobi, produced by Mixmaster Chao, while Ammi The Veggieman, hailing from Antigua was the executive producer. The music video concept was created by Jo-1 and directed and filmed by Mzushiafrica.
The launch, a private, intimate event, while keeping with health and safety measures in Kenya, was attended by many prominent DJs, celebrities and artists as well as well-wishing family and friends. Those outside of Nairobi were invited to join via zoom.
Some of the notable celebrities in attendance were as follows:
- Ian Wainaina
- Pulse Live
- Ammi The Veggieman
- Mike – Royal Media
- VDJ Jones
- DJ Kingman
We believe that this song is one that will encourage many and bring good vibes to the heart. That no matter how the state of the world is, we can find hope and healing one day at a time.Jo-1
