Music concerts in Kenya have evolved through the years with 2019 being one year that artistes are going all out to ensure that revelers get value for their Money.

On Saturday, the King of Lovers Rock, Jah Cure who was headlining the much Anticipated Umoja Splash Festival wooed the crowd after he opted to borrow the Maasai Culture to spice up his performance.

At 2 am, Jah Cure got on stage fully dressed in Maasai attire, in the company of 6 Maasai warriors who performed their famed “Adumu Dance” (adumu- traditional Masai jumping dance).

Adumu Dance

For the performance of Adumu, the 6 Maasai men formed a circle, with one of them getting inside it as they jumped. As high as possible, as smooth as possible, as elegant as possible.

The Maasai warriors dominated the better part of Jah Cure’s first set of Performance. This was my favorite part of the night. The way reggae fans had ditched their blankets to battle with the Nairobi cold, Jah Cure did not disappoint at all and he was worth the wait.

He delivered a 2-hour stellar performance that kept the crowd jumping on their feet as he sang; Before I leave, Wake Up, Pretty Face, Rasta, All of Me, That Girl, Never Find, Call on Me.

King of Lovers Rock

There was no space at the venue due to the number of fans that had turned up for the event (Sold Out).

Branded the “King of Lovers Rock” Jah Cure is one of the biggest reggae artist in Kingston Jamaica and Kenya welcomed him with open arms.

Days before the concert he toured different tourism attraction sites and participated in a clean-up exercise in Mihango, Kayole.

The show was curtain raised by a number of Kenyan artists among them; KRG The Don, Alvindo, Sol Generation’s first born Bensoul, Bundocks Gang, Donte, Kevin Brown, Natty Konshanz and the Lion Cornerstone band, Mighty Zionites, who prepared the stage for the main act of the night.
