Timaya To Headline Barbecue Live This April

The lineup of the 13th edition of Barbecue Live Nairobi chapter has been unveiled. The event going down on Saturday 8th April at the Water Front Ngong Racecourse is the perfect chill zone where delicacies meet music. Tasty ribs on the grill, all assortments of meat and mouthwatering African dishes from various caterers step up to present their best delicacies. So you would take up the event for food or one more activity, food of the soul- Music.

The music front has been well revamped to create a great experience for ravers. Nigeria’s hit maker, recording artist, songwriter, and performer Timaya will lead the contingent of entertainers for his maiden performance in Nairobi- it will be a great connect. Timaya is no stranger to hits; his artistic acumen has helped bag collabos with international acts like Sean Paul, Busy Signal, Machel Montano and Destra. He has performed in various countries in Africa, Europe, and the USA so you would expect a closely knit act from him.

His catalog is quite diverse, ranging from Afro-Beats, Dancehall, Hip-Hop, and Afro-beats. With 5 albums out, his singles seem to take center stage and have the highest fan love. His biggest jams in Nairobi include Sanko, I Like The Way, Bang Bang, Better than them and Concur.

Music on that day will be served by DJs Joe Mfalme the scratch king, Coasts Kingpin Bonez, Party Star Bash, Dj Saint and reggae connoisseur Moh Spice. The event will be hosted by Teen Republic’s Tracy Wanjiru and comedian Seth Gor.

To cater for the barbecue sampling, the event takes place from 2 pm and winds up at dawn following day. The event is powered by Famous Grouse whiskey which will be retailing at discounted prices. We are still waiting on the Kenyan artists’ headlines because it would be catastrophic if there was none on the bill.

Tickets are selling at 2000 bob for the early bird crew while group tickets of 5 go for Ksh 8,500 available on digital platforms like ticket Sasa or Jumia. At the gate, tickets retail at 3000/=.
