Mali Series Bad Guy Unveils 'Sober' Music Video

Actor and musician, Jason Corder releases his latest music video that he promises has a "sober message".

The rock music video titled Loving This Home, was unveiled at Kuona Trust over the weekend where other rock bands like Claymore project and Black Fog Angel performed.

Corder told Word Is, "The inspiration of the video stemmed from the growing Kenyan rock culture. There are a crop of young people (that society ignores or is unaware of) with tattoos and piercing and I wanted to support them by showcasing them in the video."

About the song, Corder described it as "a call to focus on one self. It is a very sober message to organise your house and (by so doing) you have space to become more creative."

The music video was directed by award wining animation producer Kwame Nyongo.

Corder plays Farouk in the TV series Mali, a corrupt businessman who blackmails his way to get what he wants and his cast-mates attended the unveiling. Mkamzee Mwatela who plays Usha in Mali was the emcee while other actors like Kevin Samuel and Daniel Peter were in attendance.

Corder was also featured in the movie Rugged Priest where he played the role of the "evil" American ambassador.
