U2’s Bono samples Nairobi night life

March 18, 2010 – Bono, the lead singer of phenomenal rock Band U2, got time out of his busy schedule to visit Tamasha Hurlingham last night.


Sipping on one of Kenya’s finest beers, Tusker Malt, the rockstar sat near the bar with a few pals after an extremely high profile dinner at the Intercontinental Hotel.

Bono is in Nairobi to attend the Pan Africa Media Conference 2010, where he is expected to participate in one of the sessions as a panellist.

Last night, Bono was reportedly looking for a feel of the Kenyan night life and was meant to have been hosted at the good-looking Brew Bistro.

Top DJs had been summoned and a local music entertainment troupe had been pre-arranged for the 50-year-old philanthropist, who unfortunately could not make it due to the exclusive dinner.


The dinner was attended by the likes of Joachim Chissamo, Mo Ibrahim, and Chris Kirubi among others.

Bono should be in Nairobi for a couple more days, so make sure you give him a tap on the shoulder if you get to see him.

Bono, who is well known for his humanitarian efforts across Africa, recently did a collabo with Beninese musician Angelique Kidjo, and John Legend was also in the mix of Curtis Mayfield’s Move On Up. Check it out here.
