Industry Nite: Electric Avenue Edition

This past week Social media was ablaze with the state of performances in the 254. Fuelled by angry fans that had to wait for Nigerian star Burna Boy for over 6 hours and got 30 minutes of action, the discourse took a right path; “can we support our own artists?”

To answer that question, this platform named Industry Nite is the ultimate start to convert more fans to love products of the 254. This Thursday, nine artists will grace the stage, spit out and showcase talent, and people need to come out in droves to support. The disdain for local music has to wither if we are to make real progress.

Come watch Kristoff as he goes through his catalogue of bangers like “Tippy Toe”. The legend Chiwawa who will be dropping new music, Femi One will also be on stage alongside her diss partner Kyuki. Producer extraordinaire Naiboi will be releasing his international remix with Fuse ODG to the song “Too Much”. New entry into the music scene; rapper, and singer DOM will make her debut stage set as she searches for a footing in the business.

The action goes down at Privee Westlands Thursday 6th April. The cover charge will be 500/= which I think is fair in case we want to see progress in how artists view the art. We cannot be paying top dollar to watch foreign acts, yet when they fail to deliver we cry foul and start wishing Kenyans were performing.

All music on Industry Nite is backed by a live band so you should expect some level of skill and talent to be showcased. Music from incredible chop stars DJ Hassan and Vj Ace Cross is strictly Kenyan all night long.

Consume local, promote local and we can leap to the stars together.
