Congolese musician receives 500,000 Kshs from flamboyant Kenyan 'billionaire' (Photos)

Steve Mbogo has the kind of flamboyance that can only be rivalled by Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko.

Steve Mbogo Gives Awilo some money

Just like the popular senator, Steve has a penchant for the finer thing in life like money, cars and luxurious jewellery. Once in a while, he likes to make it rain on people and he was certainly in usual form during the recently held Koroga Festival.

The Koroga Festival organised by Capital FM is a bi-monthly event that celebrates African music, food and culture and the 15th edition of the event saw Awilo Longomba jet into the country for a performance.

Dela and H_art the band took to the stage performing one of their hit songs. And Awilo Longomba proved that he could still keep up with the young ones through a riveting and spirited performance. A performance that jarred Steve Mbogo into showering him with wads of cash that added up to 500,000 Kshs.

In a Tweet, Steve casually name-dropped by revealing  that he and the legendary Soukous musician go way back:

But as it turns put its not only Steve who has a strong relationship with this legend, Sauti Sol recently revealed that their club banger 'Shake Yo Bum Bum was co-written by Awilo Longomba. How is that for a fun fact?
