I'm really ignorant about Kenya, but i'm guessing this drummer is famous. Don't like much the photograph. But if he is famous I think it's ok. A good idea. Now, if this drummer is not famous, it's not a very good job. At least they could have work on photographs a bit more. And if he isn't famous where's the news?

A well-known - not known ... What's the difference? Matters rhythm of the music, the drummer who asks. And it is associated with the rhythm of news in the newspaper

i think the color photo throws it off. maybe a black and white would help to emphasize the color paper.

A black and white image would probably work better with the newspaper in color to maintain its brand.
And yes, if the drummer is not newsworthy it just is not news.
