Why Acting?

“As a kid, I always loved watching a Nickelodeon TV show called ‘Thundermans’ in which Jack Griffo (Max Thundermans) was my favorite character and I always sought to myself that I would act some day and maybe get to feature him on a film project. Therefore I started impersonating Max since then with the passion I would someday start acting,” Kefas says.

He also picks inspiration from several global Actors including Jack Griffon, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Wahlberg, and Hugh Jackman.

Other Interests

Kefas has quite an amazing personal lifestyle. He loves sad music, football, and watching Crime and Detective series. His role models are, Cristiano Ronaldo, Pablo Escobar, his mother, Xxxtentacion, and President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.

Kefas has a strong love and desire for politics and seems to have an ambitious political career interest. He says he would love to be a powerful influencer leader someday.

Views on the local film industry

“I think our film industry has failed to pick up on the latest trend and fashion of acting or skit making since most of its work is past relative. That has limited us from domestic support being that Even our fellow Ugandans are exposed to better external productions such as Nollywood and others limiting the growth of our industry,” Kefas notes.

He is, however, hopeful that there are lots of positives to be picked on and to showcase the industry’s talents internationally.

“Hopefully someday in our industry, we could keep up with the latest way of film production and we will grow bigger than we are currently so that we can showcase our talents and productions to the outside world.”

Future plans

Kefas Brand has set his sights on starting up his own production school which will help younger generations achieve their dreams.

“I dream of starting up my own film and production school for both kids and teenagers,” he notes.
