Kenya: Erykah Badu Gets Window Seat to Nairobi

It's official. 41-year-old American musician Erykah Badu is in Nairobi ahead of a Tuesday concert at the Carnivore Restaurant.

@fatbellybella flew in just before midnight and emerged with red Beats by Dre headphones round her neck, before being ushered into a black Range Rover.

The four-time Grammy Award winner is due to address a press conference later this morning to say hello to fans and tell them what to expect at tomorrow's concert.

She will be flanked by EABL's Marketing Director Caroline Ndungu.

Erykah was in the company of her band and her production team when she touched down and journalists who thronged the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport almost missed her petite figure, which was being shielded by her crew.

Badu is the star performer at the Tusker Lite Experience, which turns one-year-old this week.

Advance tickets for the show are retailing at Sh4,000 (regular) and Sh7,500 (VIP). There will be no tickets sold at the venue.
