So Bank Slave, Swift, Smokey and Uhuru B agreed to remain anonymous, even when the international media came to film and photograph the event as well as the aftermath of the graffiti mural-making. Mwangi had agreed to be the Fall Guy, but nobody seem to know that he’d also be the one to claim all the credit for creating the graffiti.
The one great misfortune about graffiti art is that it may never be recognized at world-class art specifically because it usually follows the same fate as the Vulture mural that briefly occupied the minds and hearts of many Kenyans.
