Jamaican Chris Martin rocks Nairobi as the event is marred by violence and theft

Kenyan reggae lovers came out in large numbers to see Jamaican singer Chris Martin perform this past weekend.


The event dubbed Umoja Splash Festival: Big Deal concert which went down at the Impala Grounds, Nairobi on the 7th of December 2019.

The 32 year old ‘I’m a big deal’ hitmaker who had made his return to the country after eight years showed Kenyans why he is a big deal with his electrifying performance. He performed his various hit songs like ‘Weekend Love’, ‘Is it love’, ‘Chill Spot’, ‘Paper Loving’, ‘Take My Wings’, ‘Glow’, ‘Cheater’s prayer’s, ‘Pirate of the Carribean’ and ‘Messenger’ just to name a few while backed by his band.

The Reggae crooner who was dressed by popular Kibera based designer Looks Like Avido called Kenya his second home and thanked Kenyans for their love and support.

Other Jamaican stars who had accompanied Martin namely D Major and Future Fambo also gave unforgettable performances.

However the event was not all rosy as parts of the event were marred by violence. Fights amongst the massive crowd became the order of the night. “Nairobi, I didn’t come to see you fight, this event is all about love, if you came to fight please go home,” said the hitmaker.

Several intoxicated fans also tried to fight their way to the stage to ‘meet’ Chris Martin. One man managed to get on stage and tightly hugged a visibly disguted Chris Martin but was quickly whisked away by security.

Thousands of revellers braved the rain, poor state of the events grounds which was flooded and muddy to attend the highly anticipated concert. Lack of organization and proper security led to a stampede at the gate with many forcing their way into the event. Many party goers were also robbed off their valuables like mobile phones at the event.

All in all despite the fights, theft, rain and mud, Kenyans were impressed by the Jamaican’s performance and the singer also acknowledged his fans for attending the event despite everything on his social media after the event.
