The 22nd edition of popular social event, Koroga Festival went down this past weekend, 12th and 13th May at Two Rivers Mall.

The event sparked an online debate after announcing a change of venue from Carnivore Grounds to Two Rivers Mall which people thought was too far. Nevertheless, it was a success as Kenyans still showed up for an afternoon of food, music and fashion. On Saturday, fans were entertained by heartthrobs Otile Brown and Kagwe Mungai while on Sunday, entertainment was by Tetu Shani who had an incredible set with Mayonde making an appearance, South Africa's Micasa of popular hit song "Jika" and the main act, Werrason, who brought the house down.

While many people felt that the event lived up to its hype, a section of party goers took to Twitter to complain about the lack of network at the event and the mud situation. But let's face it guys, the event organizers told people to dress for the weather countless times. As for the network, that happens with every big event. Others were of the opinion that the event felt less busy than before because the Two Rivers space is much bigger than Carnivore thus giving it an "empty feel".
