Jongo Love is a Kenyan TV Series shot on a phone – a Nokia Lumia 1020 (see specifications), the 41 megapixel beast. The quality of the video is quite impressive too, as the Lumia 1020 delivers. While there are various reports that this is the first Kenyan TV series to be shot on a phone, that is not true.
The honour of the first Kenyan TV series to be shot on a phone belongs to Phoney, another TV Series shot on the Nokia N8 some years ago.
