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.
