Lady Jaydee pulls out of Sauti Fest

Popular Tanzanian songstress Lady Jaydee has cancelled her appearance at the annual Sauti Za Busara festival due to health reasons.

The award winning musician was one of the top cats in the line up for the February event, scheduled to go on stage on February 9.

Organisers who made the announcement said they were contacted by the musician’s manager Gardner Habesh.

“I regret to report that she is sick and her doctor advised that she must have a bed rest for not less than three months before she resume her daily activities. Lady Jaydee will not be seen on any show for the said period,” said Habesh.

Yusuf Mahmoud, Festival Director, responded: “we wish Lady Jaydee a speedy recovery back to health.” A replacement is to be revealed soon.

Meanwhile, the venue for Nigerian superstar musician Nneka’s performance has been moved to Treehouse, Museum Hill.

Organisers say the musician touches down at the JKIA on Thursday this week and will have a host of interviews in Nairobi before her show kicks off at 8pm on Saturday evening.

Dan Chizi has been announced as one of the curtain raisers.

Organisers told Capital Lifestyle that tickets will retail at Sh500, and they are available at the Goethe Institut.

Nneka will leave Nairobi for Kigali, Rwanda on Saturday before heading on to Zanzibar for the Sauti Za Busara festival.
