Africa’s premier music festival, Blankets & Wine is set to close the year in a memorable style. The leisure picnic affair that offers music, fashion and play is slated for 10th December at the new venue Uhuru Gardens Langata Road.
The organizers just announced the All-Star line up for the performances and they did not fail. On the bill, award-winning South African singer and songwriter Shekhinah who rose to fame from MNET’s 2012 Idol competition. She won an MTV award for Best Pop and Alternative Category and since then her star has been on a gradual rise.
Nigerian Songbird Niniola who rose to stardom via Project Fame West Africa in 2013 will be making her debut performance in Nairobi at the Blankets and Wine stage too. The AFRIMA award winner has hits like Ibadi, Shaba, Soke and much more and is an excellent stage performer.
Jamaican songstress Kelissa will be back to the 254 as a much bigger star. She has been touring the world with Chronixx and still represents the soulful conscious reggae front.
Among the Kenyan acts on the bill include Barak Jacuzzi, Dave Ndegwa, Vallerie Muthoni, Odinareh Bingwa and Berracah.
