The much anticipated Kenyan concert dubbed 'Made In Kenya Concert' has officially been postponed to 5th June 2021. The show was supposed to happen this coming weekend with stage performances from Nyashinski, Mejja, Otile Brown, Trio Mio, Kahush DJ Bash, and so many other amazing Kenyan artists.
"As you may well be aware, the government has called on the public to stop gathering to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, and after deliberations with artists, sponsors and partners, it would be irresponsible for us to go ahead with the event at this time.
This is not a decision we have taken lightly, and two overriding concerns have caused us to make this decision at this time.
Firstly, the uncertainty caused by the fact that the Covid-19 numbers in recent weeks have massively risen and we care so much about the well-being of every person involved and that includes our fans. We have met with the various stakeholders involved, and we feel it's not proper to risk Kenyans' lives and therefore have to reschedule the event to June 5th 2021.
Secondly, our primary concern is always the responsibility we feel towards our fans, artists and partners, who fund the show – not only by purchasing stand space but also in the considerable additional investment they make." stated Gloria, the event PRO.
