Fally Ipupa to headline at Sawa Sawa


May 9, 2011 – If you have Sh2,500 it can get you VIP ticket to see Congolese sensation Fally Ipupa at the Carnivore Grounds this month.


The MTV award winner and stunning performer will be the star attraction at the Sawa Sawa Festival this year, which starts on May 28.

Before Fally comes on stage, poet Wanjiku Mwaurah will have a go at it, before the energies of fellow MTV award winner Daddy Owen – in a show that spans from 6pm to midnight.

Sauti Sol, the Sarakasi All Stars and Maya Binti will perform on the second and last day of the festival, May 29, set aside for the whole family to enjoy.

Advance tickets to the event are Sh1,000, while prices at the gate are Sh1,200. 

Fally’s popularity spread like wildfire after the lingala singer teamed up with G-Unit’s Olivia for the song Chaise Eletrique in 2009, a hit single that fired rumours of a budding relationship between the duo.

His latest single Sexy Dance featuring Krys proved that the young 33-year-old is a force to reckon with all by himself, making lingala music come alive to thousands of youth across Africa and beyond.

The French speaking musician performed at the 2009 and 2010 MTV Africa music awards in Nairobi and Lagos respectively, collecting fans along the way.

Capital Group Limited will be the media sponsors for this year’s Sawa Sawa fete, whose theme is ‘Celebrating Femininity’. 

Other sponsors include KLM, Hivos, Amani Lazima, Samosa and the Tribe Hotel.

      You have no right of insulting Wambugu if you don’t agree with him do it honorably

  3. Victor Oluoch November 13th, 2012 at 11:04 am

    Wambugu is right as long as the middle class remains quiet and divided along tribal lines Kenya cannot go anywhere

    Your comment was Ok but for the last sentence. White Americans still overwhelmingly voted for their man, Romney. The money class also wanted Romney.

    Social change can only come from the middle class in a society as you point out. The poor in Kenya will always be poor, the rich will always be rich. It is only the middle class who can move to being poor or rich, therefore the political and economical state of the country will usually only affect this class of people only. But we see is they are too busy taking care of there mitumba cars, ignored because they are always taxed highly on there basics. Interestingly even within walala heri, there is a well developed social apartheid system…those who live in eastlands and others in westlands.
