Why We Love These 7 Virtual Concert Experience (And You Should, Too!)

Popular American singer, guitarist, and songwriter, Kurt Cobain once said that live music is the most primal form of energy release you can share with other people. While Kenyans love for live shows is undeniable, the COVID-19 pandemic last year forced many artists to explore the option of virtual live shows.

Through this, a lot of shows went down on various social media apps such as YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook live. And we enjoyed every bit of it. Today we sample some of the shows that stood out, giving you a chance to treat yourself from the comfort of your home or even office through these amazing Kenyan virtual shows:
