Five years ago, if you told Muthoni the Drummer Queen, CEO and Founder of Blankets and Wine that Aloe Blacc would perform on her stage she would probably have laughed at the mere impossibility and thought of it. However, the sky is the lower limit for Muthoni and the Blankets and Wine fraternity who have Aloe Blacc lined up to perform at their event in April this year. Lupita Nyongo’s words linger on this year, ‘Your dreams are valid!’
Aloe Blacc is an American hip-hop musician and songwriter who wrote and performed vocals on Avicii’s ‘Wake me up’ hit record which was charted at no.1 in 22 countries. That’s a pretty huge deal for the Kenyan entertainment Industry. The future is bright for the Kenyan Music scene as more and more international artists (and personalities) are gracing our grounds, I mean, Obama and the Pope were in Kenya, now Aloe Blacc? Save the date!
