The annual Jameson Connects Kenya concert went down last Saturday at the Waterfront Karen and it was monumental. The Hip Hop themed gig meant to appease Jameson consumers never flocks in terms of standards and this year it was lit.
The set up at Karen was like an amusement park with various subdivisions for make-up spot and barber shop, photobooth, GameZone, food tracks, Tshirt printing, cocktail bar and the main dome.
American rapper signed to Dreamville Bas hit the stage first at 1 am and the crowd went hysterical. Performing jams off his Milky Way album, Bas was surprised his fans were on it word for word. With his booming voice, he kept thanking Nairobi for hosting him and he’d achieved a dream.
Always been a dream of mine to perform in my home continent! Last night Kenya gave me this moment. I love you Nairobi. Can’t wait to do it again. pic.twitter.com/hYpQ7PyKn6

London’s hottest thing at the moment Stefflon Don hit the stage afterward accompanied by two dancers and DJ Smashrelly. Clad in blaring red bodysuit corset, all the fellows were roaring in excitement. She went through her hits like 16 shots, Senseless, hurting me and Tight Nookie. She invited some ladies on stage for a twerking contest and it was a great sight for the revellers.
The king of the party Desiigner jumped on stage to a manic crowd some minutes past 3 am. His signature sound effect did ring out so loud that you will never forget it. Critics had ranted that the one-hit wonder man would be done as soon as he walked in. Desiigner is really a stage performer. From handling all the latest trap dances to crowd surfing not once but 3 times. He really is meant to entertain. His biggest song Panda had a humungous pyrotechnics for close to 10 minutes.
That Jameson event will stay in the books as a lit one, high standard sound and set up but a muddy affair that ended at 6am.
