Jahi Di’Allo Winston

By Abigail Baldwin

Jahi Di’Allo Winston plays the lead of the upcoming, highly acclaimed film, Charm City Kings. Based on the documentary 12 O’Clock, the film follows Mouse (Winston), a young boy who wants nothing more than to be a part of the Midnight Clique, a tough group of Baltimore bike riders who rule the summertime streets. As he navigates the challenges of coming of age in a complicated world, he learns the hard way that the choices you make early on can change your life forever.

Charm City Kings had its world premiere on January 27 at Sundance Film Festival and will be making its way to SXSW in March. The film is set for nationwide release on April 17, 2020.

Right now, you can watch Winston in Everything Sucks on Netflix and 2019’s Queen & Slim, available on Prime Video.

360 Mag: What attracted you to the story of Charm City Kings?

JAHI: What attracted me to Charm City Kings was the environment in which the story took place. Having an opportunity to shed light on an entire community that’s consistently misinterpreted and misunderstood in the media was extremely appealing to me. That, as well as having the chance to be at the center of an entire universe sounded like a pretty cool first time experience…And it was!

360 Mag: In what ways do you relate to your character, Mouse?

JAHI: I would say that I related to Mouse’s ambition and relentlessness most. He has a fierce drive that causes him to overcompensate and get himself into trouble. I can definitely relate to that, having a similar drive that sometimes causes me to get ahead of myself. 

360 Mag: When did you find out you’d be working with Meek Mill? How did you react?

JAHI: I can’t remember when I found out, but I do remember being intrigued by the idea that I was going to be able to be a part of Meek’s big acting debut. He’s amazing in this movie! I really think a lot of people are going to be impressed when they see him in it. You can really see his dedication to the work and how much he enjoys what he’s doing. 

360 Mag: What was something you learned from your director Angel Manuel Soto? 

JAHI: I learned so much from Angel. I feel like one of the biggest things I learned from him was how to maintain your vision and keep your cool in the midst of chaos. We were shooting in a very high-pressure environment and a lot of chaotic things were being thrown at us every day. Angel always maintained an optimistic attitude about it all. It was really inspiring to see. So that’s something that I definitely took away. 

360 Mag: What excited you most about being at Sundance?

JAHI: The most exciting thing about being at Sundance was seeing our movie colored and complete in front of an audience for the first time. I think we all were sort of holding our breath because most of us hadn’t seen it and we were experiencing it all with the audience for the first time. For most of the audience members seemingly walking away being so moved by it was the best thing any of us could’ve asked for. 

360 Mag: Who inspires you the most in the industry?

JAHI: I’m inspired by so many different people and entities. One that really stands out to me right now is Donald Glover (Childish Gambino). I really don’t get starstruck, but if I met him I’d probably be in awe. His work just means so much to me. From his screen work, to his music; his impact on my life and my work is just endless. I find so much commonality in everything that he does and says…He makes me feel seen. I could go on and on, but I won’t. He’s one of my inspirations, for sure. 

360 Mag: Dream roll?

JAHI: My dream role is any role that I write for myself. I believe in making your own dreams come true. 

360 Mag: Favorite fashion brands?

JAHI:  I’m just a fan of fashion period! I like different things about many different designers. One that has really caught my eye right now is this one South African brand called RICH MNSI.  They’re really contemporary and unique. 

360 Mag: Can you tell us about your NAACP awards look?

JAHI: My NAACP awards look was a piece by a UK designer by the name of Kyle Ho. It was the first look that my stylist, Apuje Kalu, and I tried on. It was edgy and elegant. I’m not afraid to take risks with fashion as long as it’s something I like. We had a whole rack of clothes, but we didn’t even try any of the other ones on…We just knew it was THE ONE!

360 Mag: What are your interests outside of acting? 

JAHI: Outside of acting, I’m most interested in being a leader, whatever that entails. I wanna be someone who pushes the culture forward, someone who does good work in marginalized communities across the world. Someone who challenges the world, rather than assimilating into it. That’s what I’m interested in…As I’m typing this, I realize you probably meant like, Baseball or something, and I just gave a long answer for no reason. Oh well…

Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project

Oxygen, the home for quality true-crime programming, debuts a compelling two-hour documentary, “Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project,” on Sunday, April 5, at 7pm ET/PT.

With 2.2 million men and women behind bars in the United States, more than any other country, Kim Kardashian West is making it her personal mission to address the criminal reform crisis and make an impactful change. This documentary is an inside look at Kim’s efforts to secure freedom for Americans who she believes have been wronged by the justice system. 

In Oxygen’s two-hour documentary “Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project,” after hearing the story of Alice Marie Johnson, a great-grandmother serving a life-plus-25-year sentence as a first-time nonviolent offender, Kim Kardashian West embarked on a road to advocacy as she campaigned for criminal justice reform and helped convince the White House to grant Alice clemency in June 2018. 

The show captures Kim as she lends a hand to right injustices and advocate for change by exploring the cases of Dawn Jackson, Alexis Martin, Momolu Stewart and David Sheppard, all of whom she and the legal experts she is working alongside believe have been unfairly sentenced. The documentary follows the origins of their individual stories, revealing the devastating circumstances that led them to take the actions that changed their lives forever.

In her crusade to shed light on the criminal justice system and help people who are impacted by incarceration, Kim travels to the prisons, speaks to the families and friends, lobbies public officials, and consults with lawyers as well as her own legal team from #cut50 to develop strategies to facilitate their release. Along the way, the film documents the progress that led to Momolu Stewart’s and David Sheppard’s releases. It also highlights Kim’s growing understanding of mandatory sentencing, the damaging problems of mass incarceration, and the importance of educational programs and rehabilitation efforts for a successful reentry into society.

In late 2015, all three tracks landed at #1, #2 and #3 on the UK singles chart, surpassing a record previously held by the Beatles and making Justin the first artist ever to accomplish such a feat. In February 2016, Justin won his first Grammy: Best Dance Song for the PURPOSE track “Where Are You Now.” Justin Bieber, whose career launched in 2009, with the RIAA 5x-platinum worldwide hit “One Time,” is the first artist to reach over 10 billion views on VEVO. In 2014, he was ranked by Twitter as the #1 most tweeted about musical artist of the year. He has released five #1 albums to-date, and has starred in two films: Never Say Never (2011) and Believe (2013). In 2011, he was nominated for the Best New Artist Grammy. In 2013, Justin received the RIAA Diamond award in recognition of his 2010 single “Baby” (12x-platinum in the U.S. alone) as the best-selling digital single of all-time.

Two years ago this January, Danish pop star and TV personality Thomas Machimba Buttenschøn screened American Tyler Q Rosen’s landmark documentary Doin’ My Drugs as a work in progress with a live performance at Slamdance in snowy Park City, Utah to a capacity crowd. Since then, the film made its world premiere at the prestigious documentary festival CPH:DOX*, accompanied by an all-star cast of Zambian musicians who toured Denmark with him after.

Now, this coming week, Buttenschøn and Rosen are on their way to China for a series of concert performances, screenings, readings, public appearances and panels, culminating in a Beijing performance on World AIDS Day, December 1.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark and the Royal Danish Embassy in Beijing organized this program as part of the HIV Awareness Week in Shanghai and Beijing leading up to World AIDS Day on December 1st. The choice of Buttenschøn—a former judge on the country’s wildly popular Denmark’s got Talent (Danmark Har Talnet) is reflective with his and his family’s personal experience with HIV/AIDS, his renown in the country and the importance of the film Doin’ My Drugs.

Buttenschøn will perform five concerts, beginning November 26th through December 1st, and both Buttenschøn and Rosen will participate in several talks and panels in each city. The concerts will be comprised of songs from Doin’ My Drugs itself. Buttenschøn’s newest song, “Keep on Talking,” will be debuted to the world during these concerts as well. Additionally, Doin’ My Drugs will screen on November 27th at 7:30 PM at the Danish Cultural Centre. The Centre is located on 2 Jiuxianqiao Rd, Chaoyang, Beijing, P.R. China.

The live performances take place as follows:

November 26th–Solo concert by Buttenschøn at YYT Livehouse at 8:00 PM (851 Kaixuan Rd, Changning, Shanghai, P.R. China);

November 27th–Unplugged performance by Buttenschøn at Danish Cultural Centre at 7:30 PM (2 Jiuxianqiao Rd, Chaoyang, Beijing, P.R. China);

November 29th–Concert by Buttenschøn at CloudNine Bar at 8:00 PM (29 Zizhuyuan Rd, Zi Zhu Qiao, Haidian, P.R. China);

November 30th–Intimate concert by Buttenschøn at The Danish Cultural Centre, 798 International Arts District, 706 Beiyi Jie, 2 Jiuxianqiao Lu, Chaoyang Qu, Beijing 100025

December 1st–Concerts by Danish artists Thomas Buttenschøn and Asbjørn in celebration of World AIDS Day at Post Mountain Art Space at 8:00 PM (North to T8 Building, Dangdai MOMA, No.1 Xiangheyuan Road, Dongcheng District, Beijing)

THOMAS SELECTS-3

The documentary film Doin’ My Drugs is the story of musician Thomas Muchimba Buttenschøn—born HIV-positive in 1985—and his crusade to use his music to wipe out AIDS in his native Zambia and beyond. Doin’ My Drugs aims to raise awareness about the ongoing HIV/AIDS epidemic in Zambia—a country of 17 million people where more than 1.2 million are HIV-positive or have the disease. Zambia’s situation is mirrored throughout the developing world.

A father to two young children, Buttenschøn has kept his HIV in check and his family virus-free, by “doin’ his drugs.” He recognized that his native Zambia remains trapped in a horrific and senseless AIDS crisis. While a significant percentage of the population there is infected with HIV, many antiretroviral drug treatment programs that can keep the virus dormant—“a near-zero viral load” as Buttenschøn says—are widely available through government programs for free.

Buttenschøn has recorded a full studio album in Los Angeles, USA and Lusaka, Zambia with 16-time Grammy®-winning producer, Thom Russo Jr. That album is titled Doin’ My Drugs and will become the official motion picture soundtrack. He’ll be debuting a new single, “Keep On Talking,” on his tour, which will be available in China soon.

His first feature as a director, Doin’ My Drugs director Tyler Q Rosen has worked in film and TV in multiple capacities ranging from art director to production designer. Producer Fax Bahr won an Emmy for directing Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker’s Apocalypse. Producer Uriah Herr has also performed many production roles from director to production designer to producer. Adam Battaglia is camera operator and still photographer. Editor Jay Miracle also won an Emmy for Hearts of Darkness.

Buttenschøn has also set up a foundation, the Muchimba Music Foundation, to help his supporters, collaborators and himself on their journeys. His goal is to test upwards of 100,000 Zambians by expanding his foundation’s Test-for-Ticket concert series into a country-wide tour of Zambia. The Muchimba Music Foundation’s initial concert in Lusaka tested 10,802 people and enrolled those who tested positive into patient care treatment programs. MMF is currently fundraising to meet his goal.

“I’m so pleased to be able to have the support of four countries in my journey,” concludes Buttenschøn. “We’re planning to use this China tour and trip to build momentum for my music and my message worldwide: get tested, get treatment, and do your drugs to keep the disease in check. It’s possible if you only try. Music CAN change the world.”
