American DJ, Curator and creative Kenneth Kyrell shared his insight on how he has been dealing with social distancing and his career journey on Business of Fashion talk show hosted by the Fashion Council of Namibia live on Instagram recently.

Kyrell described his career as rewarding, unpredictable and revolving, stating that nevertheless, at the end of the day, he loves what he does.
He explained his transition from the fashion industry to music as a matter of growth and evolution adding that a lot of his clients are still in the fashion industry.
He said that as a creative, he believes in taking risks and experimenting with the brand.

“ I have always been about doing something and sharing it.” Said Kyrell adding that “collaborating and networking is how he put himself out there.”

Responding to the question of consistency and results expectations in his career in the interview with David Wamambo, he stated that one can’t expect results right away it requires putting in work and time and for him, it comes with keeping track of his work.

Kyrell said COVID 19 has affected his business completely. He said that with businesses being closed and people not allowed to be outside, there is no need for a DJ and as a result, his sources of income are slowed down too.

“ All the things I use to do as a means of income have come to a complete halt.” Said Kyrell.

During social distancing period, he said he maintains mental stability by not listening to the news and he started writing a lot than before being it songs or poems, praying a lot more, working out while listening to music, to mention but a few.

He expressed his gratitude for the support and promised to come to Namibia after COVID-19. Kyrell has been in the fashion industry for almost a decade, his clients include Dolce & Gabbana, HBO, Marcy’s and W Hotels. He has worked with many brands including Nike, GQ magazine, Calvin Klein, HUGO BOSS, to mention but a few.
