Over the years, Koroga Festival has evolved into one of the biggest celebrations in the country and the recently concluded 29th edition in partnership with Naivasha Love Festival was the best one yet! As the festival evolves over time, Koroga holds-true to its long-standing goal, to showcase Africa’s cultural diversity through music, food and art.
The 29th edition that was graced by African stars, Diamond Platnumz, Hart the Band and Mike Rua was the very first out of town experience that hosted over 6,000 attendees at Hell’s Gate National Park, Naivasha. Guests were treated to incredible, panoramic views and landscapes in the park, amazing eats, plenty of adventure and one hell of a show.
Mega star Diamond gave a blazing 90 minute performance of his hit songs from ‘Baba Lao’ to ‘Kanyaga’ to ‘Tetema’ that had the crowd on their feet for the entire performance.
Curtain-raising for Diamond Platnumz was Kenya’s very talented Hart the Band who gave the performance of a lifetime. Everything about their performance from the band to their vocals was truly exceptional.
As promised in our previous post, Koroga Festival took measures to ensure that we did not adversely affect the environment or cause any interruption or loss to the wildlife in the Park. With the help of Kenya Wildlife Service, Parapet and Coca Cola, we were able to leave the place just as we had found it, if not better.
All PET bottles were collected by Coca Cola and taken to their plant for recycling and thanks to Parapet we were able to dispose off all general waste from the festival.
Kenya Wildlife service will use the funds raised from Koroga Festival to rehabilitate this picnic area and the rest will go to conservation initiatives at Hell’s Gate National Park and Longonot Park.
