I 'stole' Tendo Kagwa's camera to film Maro's video, was paid 800k - Sasha Vybz
At some point, Sasha Vybz worked for Globetek Entertainment, a company owned by Tendo Kagwa, the brother of Gaetano Kagwa.
So, one day when Sasha Vybz was sent to shoot a wedding, instead of returning the camera to Kagwa's office, he went with it home.
The next day, he told Crystal Newman in an interview, he used the camera to shoot Biwewo, a song by Maro and it launched his career in directing music videos, with some of his first clients being Gift Ov Kaddo and Blu3 that had Mya Baganda.
Maro paid him Shs800,000.
The video was shot from Nsambya, a Kampala suburb.
For the uninitiated, Tendo Kagwa is one of the most impactful figures in the entertainment industry though he is rarely talked about. With James Byaruhanga and Seanice Kacungira, they co-founded House of DJs, the brand behind the Blankets & Wine. He is also a shareholder in Zone 7 Restaurant Mbuya, one of the hangouts in Kampala that have stood the test of time.
Sasha Vybz, real name Ian Akankwasa, was born on August 28, 1991 at Kabale Hospital. He went to different schools, including Kashozi Boarding Primary School, Kigezi High School, Kitende College and Kampala Secondary School.
He later studied film and production (majoring in Directing of Photography) at City Varsity School of Media and Creative Arts in Cape Town, but this was when he was already working.
At a young age, Vybz was involved in dancing, choir and fine art while in school. After S.6, he left Kabale to come and look for work in Kampala. He landed his first gig as a photographer, having been recommended by a friend to a studio.
He used knowledge obtained from YouTube to convince the studio owner that he could shoot pictures. He showed potential of first learning and he would soon become a top photographer at the studio.
