Kenyan Artistes Unite For 16-Hour Mega Extravaganza

Kenyan Artistes Unite For 16-Hour Mega Extravaganza Kenyan Artistes Unite For 16-Hour Mega Extravaganza

The Sportspesa festival held at Nyayo Stadium over the weekend rejuvenated local showbiz.

It confirmed the might of an industry that has been in an awakening mood after years of slumber. It has been a while since so many artistes performed at one concert. In fact, not since the bumper Jaza Lorry concert held at the same place in 2010.

The industry stood united as tens of artistes, friends and foes bonded and exchanged turns on stage as thousands of their fans celebrated them in a non-stop concert that went for over 16 hours.

The industry’s might gave it their best shot as they entertained the mammoth crowd with popular hits, some that threw everyone in a déjà vu mood bringing back memories of showbiz glory days.

From celebrity showbiz pioneers like Nameless, Redsan, Juacali, Abbas, Just-A-Band, Collo, Muthoni MDQ and Nonini to current greats like Sauti Sol, Khaligraph Jones, Sana, Wangechi, Madtraxx and H_art the Band among others, local artistes gave their all, putting aside differences that had threatened to split the showbiz scene into different fronts.

Deejays, events promoters, top models, dance troupes as well as top acts on the film and theatre scene, came out in support. It was not until the early morning hours on Sunday that fans began to leave the stadium. The event was also graced by Tanzanian top rapper AY.

“The current unity among Kenyan and Tanzanian artistes is a step in the right direction. It is something the industry had been yearning for for years. At long last, we can say we have a united showbiz front that will put East African music on the world map,” AY, who had been accompanied by four other Tanzanian artistes told MondayBlues.

Veteran event organisers among them Big Ted, Big Kev and Leakey Odera, as well as celebrated showbiz opinion leaders Arthur K and Bernard Kioko of Bernsoft, were in attendance
