East African Breweries Limited Kenya Marketing Director Caroline Ndungu says Johnny Gill is one of several artists lined up for events that will be hosted by the Tusker Lite brand this year.
“It’s about good music, a great environment, a good time with friends and good fun and that is what the Tusker Lite experiences promises.”
“Tusker Lite is the ideal beer of choice for all easy going occasions which is in line with the experiences we have been delivering starting with Donell Jones, Joe Thomas and now Johnny Gill. His music is easy, relaxing and laid back; exactly what Tusker Lite represents – easy going,” added Ms Ndungu.

In line with promoting local talent ,recently crowned winner of this years Tusker Project Fame Ruth Masese will curtain raise for Johnny Gill.
Tusker Lite Brand Manager Faith Nyambura said the ‘Discover the Tusker Lite experience’ lounge event is intended to be more of an experience as opposed to concert, in tandem with the Tusker Lite kind of drinker who is easy going, has a true enthusiasm for life, a good sense of humour and a positive outlook on things.
“An easy drinking experience is: enjoying a fulfilling lifestyle and relaxing with friends after a day’s work, over a cold bottle of Tusker Lite,” noted Ms Nyambura

Johnny Gill is 46 years old and was born in Washington DC where he honed his skills with the Gospel group Wings of Faith before being discovered by RnB great Stacy Lattisaw. His big break came in 1987 when he replaced Bobby Brown in New Edition.
Gill is credited with elevating New Edition to uncharted greatness and used his remarkable voice to steer the all star trio LSG consisting of Keith Sweat and the late great Gerald Levert to platinum plus success.
As part of famed quintet New Edition, Gill is best known for tracks such as My,My,My and Fairweather Friend among others. His music genre fits into the popular Kenyan ‘New Jack swing’.
