The 21st Edition of Koroga Festival

The Koroga Festival, usually brought to us by Capital FM celebrates the greatest African acts from around the continent, food & culture. The Festival began Saturday 2pm to Midnight and later today Sunday from noon to 7pm. I didn’t attend the event on Saturday however, I managed to be there on Sunday and I got to watch Sage and the main act Yemia Alade on stage. Mercy Masika was also lined up to perform. This edition was more of ‘the queens edition’ with the trending #Queensrock I have put together images I captured from the event today. Copyright of image…

Jamhuri Reggae Festival in the Rain

Good Evening from Nairobi. We are experiencing rains in Nairobi btw and we give thanks! On my previous post, I covered Freddie Mcgregor landing in Nairobi and promised to share some images from his live performance in Kenya. Finally here we go. The concert happened yesterday in a rainy fashion and style. At first I thought Nairobians will not show up in numbers to enjoy their love for Reggae music. I was wrong, indeed very wrong. They came in numbers and they continued coming until the last act who was Freddie Mcgregor. I asked Freddie’s team why they didn’t come…

  Greeting from me to you and your family. I hope you had a great festive season and getting ready for 2018. The New Year looks promising Inshallah. Where were you on the eve of the New Year? I hope you had a blast! As is the norm I like sharing with you how mine was. I was lucky to have been involved in this major concert organized by Trueblaq on behalf of Chrome Vodka.

Two Rivers Mall looking AMAZING

Have you been to the largest shopping mall in Kenya this Festive period? May be this will be the right time for you to visit and experience this amazing mall. I personally got to visit for the first time. I was doing a site visit because I was planning on doing some photos of the Christmas lighting set up done by Dent International on behalf of Two Rivers. It’s a beautiful place with lots of amenities and the ‘normal’ mall tenants you know….. I loved the shops, most of the shops have affordable prices though including Carrefour Supermarket. The shops…

CHROME VODKA MEGA BASH-THIKA

Been a while guys but glad I finally got something to keep you busy this afternoon. Did some interesting coverage for Trueblaq (experiential marketing company) last weekend for one awesome brand ‘Chrome Vodka’ in Thika Town. There’s this very big party that they organized and was headlined by Sauti sol. Fresh with their brand new single MELANIN ft Patoranking-  we were set for the performance of our life. With focus on the brand Chrome Vodka, I bring to you some interesting images I got from the event. I hope you get to enjoy them. Image copyright :www.ogetoevans.com/Chrome Vodka See you…

#ViceNites is back

The #ViceNites brand activations are back and lucky to have been apppointed to cover some of their events and so far so good. Here is how it has been so far but first: What is ViceNites about? Vicenites is about bringing the Viceroy tag line and activation concept (True Balance) to life and further looking for the opportune avenues to connect with our clients (millennials 18 – 30 yrs.). There is no better way to do it than through music.   From a Viceroy’s perspective True Balance is a balance between our heritage – where we have come from and…

The Maasai Mara Trip #001

Got really excited from day 1 of this Nature and Wildlife photography journey. I have been to many parks and wildlife reserves but never to Mara National Park. I have always wanted to surprise myself with Mara and so it happened. A few days ago I got information about a trip that was organized by Stephen Nderitu of Photo Kenya and Abdi of Kiboslopes Safaris and when I looked at the details I was impressed. It was a land cruiser with only 5 photographers in each. The fee was very affordable with 2 nights and crazy game drives. Our guide…

I LOVE MY NAIROBI

Are you somewhere in this great world of ours and you are wondering what would inspire you to visit Nairobi? Or even connect via Nairobi. There is more to what you might actually have thought. You just need 20 mins from the CBD to Nairobi National Park on a good day without traffic and 40-60 minutes with traffic but be very flexible. Even better with 20 minutes you can get to the Park directly from the Airport via the Southern bypass…. What more can I say, I have fallen into this trap of always having something to do. A lot…

Busy Signal Live Concert in Nairobi

Born Glendale Goshia Gordon and stage name Busy Signal, we got to enjoy his performance live in Nairobi yesternight. Busy Signal has been a large part of the dancehall scene since 2003 and getting to attend his event will always be memorable. He was nicknamed Busy Signal by his friends because of the fact that he was constantly busy. I got hooked up into Busy’s world in 2008 when he released his album ‘Loaded‘ which had crazy songs like “whine pon de edge’. Busy has amazing music and i can mention over 20 songs that were and still a hit…

Damian Marley Live at Street Fusion Concert

Ever thought about how good music can be? You know how good music can be to your heart, mind and even your waistline or your soul?? Anyway HAPPY MADARAKA DAY to my Kenyan Brothers and Sisters and Happy working day to the rest of the world. Yesterday night will be a day to remember for the rest of my life. Damian Marley and his band finally stepped onto the stage and we lived up thereafter till 5.00am today. He was full of energy, vibes, stories and legendary voices. He sang some of his father’s songs and we all agreed he…

Damian Marley @ Kenya Wildlife Services (KWS)

Good people. Damian Marley landed in yesterday for the much awaited concert ‘The street fusion‘ happening on 31st May 2017 at Carnivore. I missed out on him yesterday as he landed but caught up with the team as he went to KWS to adopt a lion and had lunch there after. Been covering so many Reggae events but this one will be huge. I can’t wait for tomorrow. Thank you to Head-cornerstone Entertainment for making this a reality. See you tomorrow at the concert. Stay Blessed.

Lake Turkana Festival 2017

I am just laughing btw. I just hope you find the so called ‘Cultural images’ here. When you hear Turkana. What comes into your mind? Women right? topless right? breast feeding their children topless right? you are in for a shocker…… I will bring out my point of view, the part where I was involved and captured. So last week on Thu, joined a group of lively ladies and gents at 4.45am in Nairobi town with an objective of heading north of Kenya (Turkana). Never been to this far so I was ready for anything. The journey to this end…
