Julius Owino, also known as Juliani, is a hip-hop musician with an infectious message of social, spiritual and political emancipation, fresh and relevant in Africa today. His unique lyrical flow, passionate delivery and electrifying performances have made him an icon to Kenyan and African youth and he uses this powerful platform to make the world a better place.
Forever socially conscious, Juliani represented Kenya at the 2009 UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen. He has supported causes such as the World Vision Peace Tour and Stand Up Against Poverty (UN Millennium Campaign For MDG’s) We join him on his current Kenyan tour as he shakes his dreadlocks and shouts his positive rap lyrics encouraging a whole generation of Kenyan’s to live up to their exponential potential.
And by the way – Farming is cool!
