Musician Akothee, through her Akothee Foundation, pulled off a successful charity concert for a worthy cause on Sunday afternoon at Uhuru Gardens with all proceeds channeled to drought victims in Turkana county.
The concert got off to a slow start even as comedians Ofweneke and Owago jazzed up the crowd with their stand up performances and music interludes.
As the concert continued, so did the number of comedians. With the likes of Jalango, Obinna, Eric Omondi, Chipukeezy and DJ Shiti all in the house, one would have been mistaken that this was a live recording of the Churchill Show.
The concert brought together not only mainstream artistes but also Ohangla, Benga musicians and dancers all for a worthy cause.
Msupa S, King Kaka, Khaligraph Jones, Tony Nyandundo, Musa Jakadala, Dufla, Bahati, Victoria Kimani, Avril, Nameless, Arrow Bwoy, Sammy Ngare and F.B.I dancers are among the artistes who performed.
Finally, Madam Boss Akothee arrived in a stretch silver limo around 5pm to a rousing welcome from the crowd which had been anxiously waiting for her.
She paid homage to her father, who was present, and called on parents to support their children. She later called former Budalang’i MP Ababu Namwamba on stage as she performed and even did a twerk for him as the crowd cheered on.
DJs present to hype up the crowd were none other than DJ Joe, DJ Mellow and DJ Sadiq among others. Curtains came down at 8pm in what was a hugely successful concert.
