The singer shared that operating the club has taught him many lessons including how the industry operates.

He added that the business in question not only generated revenue, but also created employment opportunities for at least 50 young people.

The singer revealed that The Manhattan nightclub which opened in July 2022 was founded to provide him with a place where he could mingle with his fans who have supported him through the years.

The club was located in the outskirts of Nairobi – at the first floor of the newly launched The Imaara Mall. The Club is tactfully located at the intersection of Mombasa Road and the entrance into the vast and populous Imara Daima Estate.

It was launched in pomp and glamour with a host of celebrities turning up with notable figures including Comedian Eric Omondi, Eugene Mbugua, MC Antonio, Chiki Kuruka (Bien’s wife), Comedian Eddie Butita, Comedian Nick BigFish, Comedian Carlos Experience among those present.

A statement released on April 5, by the club’s directors, including Bien revealed that the club ceased operation in March due to unresolved disputes with the landlord.

“Regrettably, The Manhattan has been closed for the past two weeks due to circumstances beyond our control, which we believe amount to breach of contract, intimidation and harassment by our landlord, Tuffsteel Limited,” the directors said in a statement.

“Although we have tried to resolve the issue amicably through our directors, emissaries and repeated requests for mediation, there has been no positive resolution to date. We have therefore sought legal redress to protect the interests of our business and the welfare of our employees, suppliers and business partners. It’s our sincere hope that justice will prevail through the legal system,” the statement added.
