The Rooftop at the annex of Diamond Plaza in Nairobi was the venue of the spectacular Jade Presentation New Year Eve Party. Dubbed 'Temptations', the party was a great success with DJ Ricky, an associate of DJ Suketu, rocking the revellers.
DJ Ricky had the crowd dancing nearly non-stop with major tunes from Bollywood films. This black and silver setting event shined through the drops of rain and was a blast at the stroke of midnight. The party was sponsored by Basco Paints and East FM.
Ramgarhia Youth party rocks
The Ramgarhia Youth Association New Year party at the Simba Union Club in Nairobi was fantastic. The men were smart in tuxedos or the black tie while their partners had black dresses or traditional outfits. It was a stylish yet subtle presentation for a party that was going to usher in a new year full of aspirations and possibilities.In attendance was artiste Sukhdev who will be launching a new song related to Kenya this year.
DJ Sahil impresses at Just Like That party
Thirty minutes into the New Year, I walked into the Venom Club, Nairobi, for the Just Like That party where DJ Sahil was on the decks. This MTV VJ is brilliant and had the music at a good vibe. However the young and vibrant had not arrived to catch the action and were still at the private parties or elsewhere. This was the party you can call the morning after as you woke up to a New Year still on your toes.
