Omarion performing in Kenya

The Afro Pop event aims at growing pop culture in Kenya and sure enough, the performance lineup included fresh new sounds like Fena Gitu, Dela and Camp Mullah’s Shappaman who made his grand comeback with a new hit song.

In attendance were celebrities like, Amina Abdi, Vera Sidika, Shaffie Weru, fashion blogger Lucia Musau and Mykie Tuchi or Tonie from defunct alternative hip hop group Camp Mullah. Raila Junior was also in attendance but preferred to keep a low profile.

Taking to stage accompanied by his hype man, Omarion performed recent hits like ‘Distance’ along with some other hits for his new album, he also performed ‘Post To Be’ his song with Chris Brown and Jhene Aiko and seemed very impressed with how Kenyans shouted ‘you gotta eat the booty like groceries’

Old hits like ‘Icebox’ and some from his B2K days were also performed but his 2010 hit ‘Speeding’ from the album ‘Ollison’ was missing in action.

His performance was fantastic, to be honest, but too short. For some, it was short and sweet but for those that paid 10,000 Kshs for V.I.P access, it felt like a rip-off considering that the V.I.P scene was a bit too crowded.

All in all, I personally think it was worth it since I’ve been an Omarion fan for the longest time and his performance was so energetic and he connected well with his screaming fans.

After his concert, Vera Sidika got on stage and people asked her to twerk like she does on Instagram but she declined saying that she couldn’t twerk in her tight dress.

Omarion concluded his Kenyan trip at Kiza Lounge where he got to interact with Mozambican artiste Shellsy Baronet.  Shellys was in the country for this season of Coke Studio Africa ,a season that will broadcast in more than 30 countries across Africa.

"It's still so amazing to me that people embrace me as one of their own wherever I go. I will forever appreciate these moments!!! Kenya was a blast!! Thank you to ALL!! Until next time!!" He wrote regarding his Kenyan experience.
