Kenya: Safaricom Live Curtains Come Down

The Niko Na Safaricom Live 2012 series of concerts concluded this Saturday at the Impala grounds, Ngong Road, after five months of activities in various towns across the country.

The event was marked with DJ hypes that included dance competitions and quick-fire scratch card contests. Other fun activities included instant portraits at the Safaricom Village. It was a family fun day.

The artistes took to the stage one after the other with gospel group M.O.G as the opening act. Other performances were by popular Mombasa-based musician Ally B, the urban hip hop group Camp Mulla, Kigeugeu singer Jaguar, the sassy Size 8, boy band Sauti Sol and Kenya's king of dancehall music Redsan. The golden boy of gospel music Juliani was also one of the performers. The Niko Na Safaricom Live Grand concert was a fitting end to a wave of musical sensation that began in Bungoma, in October 2010.
