For those who grew up listening to and appreciating hip hop in the 90s, there’s absolutely no way you wouldn’t be familiar with Talib Kweli’s music.
Invited to Nairobi, Kenya, by Nairobi Hip Hop Rhapsody and Hennessy Artistry, Talib was set to perform at Ebony Lounge on Thursday night (23.10.14) and it’s no surprise that the venue was packed to capacity by hip hop enthusiasts.
The event started with performances from local artists including Muthoni DQ and Khaligraph who not only got people’s energy going but also provided an interesting blend of music for the night. The distinct combination of hip hop artists, all of whom have a unique angle to their art, made the night all the more memorable for the fans – a true testament to Hennessy Artistry’s mission of providing an exciting blend of experiences.
Fans of the hip hop legend who attended the party described his performance as electrifying. Despite starting off at a section of the club designated as the dance floor, Talib soon ended up on top of the DJ booth which allowed for an even better performance.
The show ended with Talib thanking the crowd and the city for being incredible hosts, a perfect ending to an incredible night.
