According to Melvin, who works at Tamasha, Chiloba showed up at 10 o’clock at night with a companion whom she was unfamiliar with.
Education And Early Career
After spending his formative years being moved around from relative to relative, Edwin Chiloba eventually enrolled in the Education program at Moi University West Campus after completing his childhood spent with various relatives.
It was then, among the many different school groups and chances for exposure, that he found the thing that brought him the most joy and that sparked a new passion for him: fashion.
The third year of his existence was when he started dressing himself, taking part in photoshoots and pageants, and behaving in a way that his family felt to be embarrassing in general.
He Was And Expelled Student
After being expelled from the school, he went to Nairobi in order to pursue his dream of finding work in the fashion industry in that city. An individual with whom they shared a common acquaintance gave the invitation to join his modeling agency.
Soon after he began working on his drawings, he received his big break in the form of a message on Facebook from a white couple who raved over how much they enjoy his designs. This message was the beginning of his career as an artist.
After coming to the conclusion that he wanted to work in the fashion sector, he enrolled in a fashion school in order to prepare himself for the profession.
By acting as a gender-free and unconventional fashion designer, he subverted the conventional expectations that were placed on him. I ask God to grant him the peace that passes all understanding.
