Jamaican reggae and dancehall artist Mark Anthony Myrie, popularly known as Buju Banton will be performing in Nairobi next year.
Buju Banton announced on his social media platforms much to the delight of millions of Kenyan reggae fans that he will be in the country for an unforgettable performance on the 8th of February 2020.
Buju was scheduled to headline the #NRGWave Show in Mombasa on December 31, 2019, but the show has since been postponed to 2020.
This is following various complaints from Kenyans on Twitter requesting for the promoters of the show, NRG Radio, to ensure the world-renowned artist performs in Nairobi as well.
The hashtag #BujuAkujeNairobi has been trending with fans keen to attend what would have been the reggae legend’s first live show in Africa.
The organizers also confirmed the 2020 Buju concert in Nairobi.
Buju joins the long list of Jamaican artists who have performed in the country including Grammy-nominated teen Koffee, Etana, Chris Martin, Konshens, Jah Cure, Chronixx, Glen Washington, Duane Stephenson, Richie Spice, Luciano, Tarrus Riley, Romain Virgo, Alaine, Morgan Heritage and D Major just to mention a few.
