Uhuru's niece excites Kenyans after bold move to support local artists (Video)

Nana makes major moves

Nana Gecaga, the CEO of the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) made an announcement that space will be freely provided for upcoming artists to showcase their arts and talents and sell their works.

Four upcoming artists will as from 1 June 2018 be given a platform on the foyer, 1st floor KICC. This will happen after every two weeks and artists will stage their performances and earn some cash from it.

Nana revealed that she settled on that decision after receiving multiple requests from local upcoming artists who want to be assisted so as to grow their talents.

“I feel like it is time to support Kenyan local artists not only locally but also internationally”, she said.

Jalang'o, a comedian and radio host has helped pass out the information to the youth. He shared a comical video imitating Nana while calling upon Kenyans to participate in Mini Gallery at KICC.

The thing about being an artist in Africa, is that you only matter when you have hit the big time. Upcoming artists go through lots of hustles and tussles before conquering the audience’s hearts and becoming recognized for their work.

It is finally a sigh of relief for the struggling upcoming artists as Nana’s move will be a big boost for them.
