Everything you missed at Thrift Social’s ‘Made in Kenya’ edition; Sho Madjozi, Nyashinski and more

Thrift Social Nairobi kicked off the month of September with a trio of performances and an afternoon of fashion and fun, that went on later into the night. The fifth edition featured performances from Chris Kaiga, Sho Madjozi, and Nyashinski.

The event which was held at Delta Towers, Westlands on 1st September 2019 saw South African Gqom star Sho Madjozi grace the stage for what was set to be an electric performance. The South African cutie who was set to headline the show ended up performing for about half an hour, performing after a noteworthy set by DJ Fully Focus. After a memorable entrance, Madjozi soon complained about the shaky stage only to be disappointed further by poor sound as she performed. Speaking about the sub-standard setup, Madjozi insisted that the show must go on saying, “If I die, I die.” The Limpopo-born singer performed some of her greatest hits including the newly released ‘John Cena‘, ‘Idhom’ as well as ‘Huku’, sending the crowd into a frenzy.

Sho opened up about working with artists from the +254, pointing out “I love Kenya so much that I’ve been doing a couple of collabos.” She gave her Kenyan fans a special treat performing some of her new tracks, one of them being ‘Disco Matanga’ a collaboration with Kenya’s favorite foursome Sauti Sol as well as a new track with trap trio AD Family dubbed ‘Juice Man.’ Local dance troupe Movaz Dance Crew Kenya were also incorporated in the performance, as they danced alongside the BET 2019 Award winner.

The 27-year-old artist born Maya Christinah Xichavo Wegerif walked off stage after sound failure, leaving fans disappointed over the brief performance. However, the tempo picked up back again as Nyashinki took to the stage. But it seems he too was less than impressed by the subpar stage set-up. His performance was frequently punctuated by sound failure, as he performed to a backing track provided by a deejay. Nonetheless, he made the most of his time onstage even paying tribute to legendary crew Kleptomaniax. Nyash even performed his latest release ‘Balance’ as well as crowd favorite ‘Bebi’ among others. Despite the myriad of issues, Nyashinski proved he was a true performer closing out the night on a high.

The event ended a few minutes after 11 pm, leaving revelers eager for more. Sadly, the performances could have been much longer, as many attendees were disappointed over the poor stage and sound and lighting setup which saw audience members squinting to see the performers in their full glory.

Thrift Social is known for its hype performances, previously hosting IAMDDB, Nigerian BET Award winner Burna Boy and Oshun.
