Thursday, 8 October

For the latest Forever Forwards episode, the group connect with Ibrahim Kamara, co-founder of the youth-led, new media platform, GUAP. Born and raised in London, Ibrahim speaks bout rapping from a young age (2:13) and how his DIY approach taught him to develop his skills in graphic design, filming and editing, which he still uses today. He reflects on his first entrepreneurial venture, a doomed party that bore a resemblance to Fyre Festival (3:33) and how it was an important lesson. Ibrahim then breaks down the purpose of GUAP (10:00) and how he wants it to be the home of under-represented emerging creatives. (21:51) Ibrahim’s dedication is evident when he reveals he adopted a minimalist lifestyle for four years to ensure his business could survive. The South Londoner also speaks on the need to relax and take a break, as he is dedicated to his craft but realises the need to preserve his mental health (24:22). An inspiring conversation with a young man who is focused on uplifting the creative community.
