Last Saturday on the 23rd of May 2020, the world got to experience the biggest virtual concert take place from Nairobi, specifically live from NRG Radio studios!!!
The much anticipated show went live at 10PM EAT for a two-hour night to remember! Hosted by Mwalimu Rachel, DJ Xclusive and Ibu Nene, they also had a surprise guest with Betty Kyalo stepping out of the news room for a bit of entertainment.
The show started off work Alternate sound from Nigeria, Nyashinski, Gilad and Webi from Kenya, with Mimi Mars, G Nako and Lulu diva representing Tanzania. Uganda was also heavy in the house with representations by Vinka, Sheeba, Jose chameleon and Bebi Cool. Ethiopia was also not left behind, they had a great performance by Lij Michael.
Each artist put a lot of effort in their sets by adding their own creativity and personality with their performances.
The Dynamiques performed covers of African songs ensuring that no African country was left behind aiding the #WeAreOneMovement of keeping us connected.
NRG also did it the NRG way with entertainment from their DJ’s and presenters which was a cherry on top that we all needed.
From choreographed dances, in house mixes and great conversations, it’s safe to say that they were well prepared.
The show was lit!! The audience was engaged at home just like they were in a real concert. To make things better, some of them were winners and went home with phones, airtime and rent to push them through these trying times.
This was a great collaboration for a greater cause with all the proceeds of the event going to the Amref Health Africa COVID19 Crisis response team.
The concert keeps getting bigger and better and we can’t wait to see what happens this Saturday on the 6th of June 2020, same place and time!!!
