Kenya: Honey Singh Rocks Nairobians

He is young, stylish and has one of the largest fan followings online. This is the artist known as "Yo!Yo! Honey Singh" and he was performing for the first time in Kenya last Saturday at the Carnivore in Nairobi.

The turnout was great and Honey Singh and his rappers and singers like Mafia Mundeer and J-Star rocked the crowd. There were no warm up acts and it was straight to business.

Honey Singh's music appeals to the old and young alike and he is quickly becoming the most sought after rapper in Bollywood.

His hits have been used in films like Son of Sardaar, Cocktail and Khiladi 786. His show was courtesy of Muzikzon Entertainment and Wide Angles Vision.
