For the latest Forever Forwards episode, the group chat with Jojo Sonubi, co-founder of Recess, Black In The Day and There’s No Signal Radio. Jojo speaks on his start in events (3:54) and how his friends were struggling to find a regular party in London, so they set about creating their own and promoted through Twitter. Jojo talks about his first Recess party (15:10) at Ace Hotel in 2015 and how the failures and learnings really inspired him to get better at his craft. The young entrepreneur also breaks down the start of the submission-based photo archive, Black In The Day (20:24) and reveals how No Signal Radio started (39:14) and took off during lockdown. Kieran then gets Jojo to spill the tea on what happened during the infamous Vybz Kartel vs Wizkid battle (43:08)! The episode is capped off hilariously at the end when the guys discuss the importance of food containers in Afro-Caribbean households (55:17)!
An inspiring conversation with a cultural connector who is truly innovating across events, photography and radio.
