The second edition of Jamhuri Reggae Festival is set to go down on the 2nd of December at the KICC Grounds. Trying to add on to the success of the debut concert where we saw Jamaican reggae stars Capleton and Queen Ifrica perform at the Safaricom Stadium Kasarani, the organizers have an all-star line-up.
The headline act this year is reggae crooner Freddie McGregor, a Marcus Garvey Lifetime Achievement award winner, fondly referred to as the Captain of The Big Ship.
Freddie McGregor’s popularity soared in the early 1980s with the release of “Bobby Babylon”. He established the Big Ship Recording Studio and has produced many artists including Luciano and Mikey Spice. Other popular hits of Freddie’s include “Big Ship”, “Push Comes To Shove”, “Just Don’t Want To Be Lonely”, ”Bangalang” and “I Was Born A Winner”, as well as cover versions of many early reggae standards.
Themed, Kenya Moja, the second edition of the festival seeks to not only provide a unique concert experience but to also spread a non-political message of peace love and togetherness as the country exits a long period of electioneering.
Speaking of the event, Events Manager at Head Cornerstone Entertainment Evarita Kamau said “We are excited to yet again provide an award-winning line-up of artists for the Kenyan reggae music lover. This being the second edition of the festival, we know the fans are looking forward to another exceptional experience and we are working hard to ensure we exceed their expectations”.
The gate charges for the event are Ksh1000 advance regular tickets and Ksh4000 VIP. At the gate, you will part with Ksh1500 and Ksh5000 respectively.
