Here is why Sakaja could be ‘using filters’ on his social media images

A video featuring Nairobi Governor, Johnson Sakaja, appearing slightly lighter has sparked varied responses on social media.

In the video, the county CEO addresses allegations of using filters on his photos.

Governor Sakaja challenged those who’ve interacted with him to come out and confirm that he doesn’t use filters in his posts.

“Check this out, people are saying I use filters. But this is how I always look. Confirm if you’ve seen me and settle this debate,” he says in the video.

However, Embakasi East Member of Parliament, Babu Owino, remained unconvinced by Sakaja’s explanation.

He asserted that the governor, whom he referred to as ‘her,’ had indeed been using filters.

“Her Excellency seems to be showing signs. Nairobi has some interesting things going on,” the lawmaker remarked.

What are filters?

Mostly used on photos and videos, filters are digital tools or effects applied to images to alter their appearance.

They can change various aspects of the photos such as color, contrast, brightness, saturation, and texture.

Some common types of filters include black and white, vintage, blur, and distortion filters.

Filters can enhance the overall look of an image, make it more visually appealing, evoke certain moods or emotions, or convey a particular artistic style.

Filters are widely used in photography and social media platforms to enhance and customize images before sharing them with others.

Young tech-savvy politicians, like Governor Sakaja, are likely to edit their photos in ways they want them to appear online.

Sakaja has amassed a huge following on his TikTok account where he regularly engages with Nairobians.

In his first video on TikTok , Sakaja reached out to his followers, inviting them to guide him and suggest what to do next.

“I’m new here, so feel free to show me around,” said in the video.

In another video, he expressed his gratitude, saying, “I think I am enjoying this, thank you all so much.”

Currently, he boasts over 300,000 followers on the platform, and he follows only one person, whom he credited for teaching him how to use TikTok.

“For those wondering who the one person I follow is, she’s the one who introduced me to TikTok, my social media manager,” he explained.
