American rapper icon and business mogul Shawn Carter also known by his street moniker Jay-Z will be on Mpasho Live to talk about working with a Kenya designer.
Jay Z was seen leaving Giorgio Baldi Italian Restaurant in Santa Monica rocking a Lamu Riyadha Mosque T-shirt designed by Kenyan designer Zeddie Lukoye of Blkburd Genes.
This was on Tuesday evening March 30.
The designer posted the photos of his social media and wrote,
“If it wasn’t for these pictures they wouldn’t see me at all”

Thanks to Jay Z that specific t-shirt brand is sold out.
Speaking to Mpasho Jay-Z’s reps said supporting the Kenyan brand was easy because the creativity and innovative zeal shines through in the brand.
The rep added that Jayz thinks,
“Supporting Kenyan designs is a flex. That is creativity at its best.”
The star will be talking to our very own Kalondu Musyimi later today on Mpasho Live for his April 1, big reveal.
