Kenya: Details of Terminal Music Weekend Featuring Keri Hilson Released

"Nairobi, Kenya. I’m comin your way on August 3. I’ll be performing and doing some work there with TheKeriHilsonFoundation" she tweeted.

Details of the Terminal Music Weekend set for August at the KICC, featuring American RnB star Keri Hilson and rapper Big Shaq, have been made public.

Keri Hilson, a two-time Grammy nominee, will be part of six international acts who will be paired up with six local artistes for a musical weekend.

Other than Hilson and Big Shaq, the other international artistes who have been invited for the event are Bobby V, Horace Brown, Big Toobz and WSTRN.

Representing the local acts will be Habida, Sage, June Gachui, Khaligraph Jones, Steph Kapela and Shukid.

On each of the two days, six artistes will perform with one international act paired up with a local act.

"There will be nothing such as local artiste curtain raising for the foreigners at the Terminal Music Weekend. We are doing away with that kind of myth and what we have done is to pair an international to a local artiste who will share the stage," said Daniel Ebo who has been married to Habida for the last seven years.

The weekend will also host international DJ from the UK, DJ Joe Grinds who will perform alongside local DJ's Stylez, Pinye, Adrian, Mixmaster Lenny and G Money.

Ebo further reveled that the Terminal Music Weekend will be an annual event as they look forward to bringing in even bigger artistes in future editions. "We hope to bring Beyonce on the fifth edition," Ebo said.
