Over the weekend, Bien with a few of his friends were at the club for its official launch, plus the premiere of his new single ‘Inauma’ that has been ruling the airwaves since being released on different streaming platforms.
Some of the notable figures that were spotted at The Manhattan on Sunday are Comedian Eric Omondi, Makena Njeri, Eugene Mbugua, MC Antonio, Chiki Kuruka (Bien’s wife), Comedian Eddie Butita, Comedian Nick BigFish, Comedian Carlos Experience among others.
Bien used his social media pages to alert his fans that he was making a special appearance at The Manhattan and they should pull up for good vibes and good music as they enjoy their favorite drink and food.
The musician has joined other celebrities who also own night clubs and restaurants in Nairobi and other towns.
