Sauti Sol has been confirmed to perform at the upcoming second edition of the Stanbic Yetu Festival.
The festival will take place on June 10, 2023, at Uhuru Gardens in Nairobi where the group is expected to entertain their fans with their hits from their over five albums.
Lilian Onyanch Head of Consumer and High-Net Worth and Acting Head of Brand and Marketing expressed her excitement about having the band be part of the festival which will be headlined by the iconic R&B band Boyz II Men.
“We are excited to have Sauti Sol perform at the upcoming 2nd Edition of the Stanbic Yetu Festival, they will most definitely help create a soulful and unforgettable musical experience for Kenyans and beyond,” said Onyach.
The event organizer, Radio Africa Events, chose Uhuru Gardens as the venue for the festival because it aligns with the event’s purpose.
“Uhuru Gardens, which is the event location, was a well thought out and deliberate choice for us as it aligns with our purpose which is ‘Kenya is our Home, we drive her Growth’. Therefore, we want everyone to come to enjoy the music, acknowledge Kenya’s successes, and appreciate our Kenyan heritage,” said Onyanch.
The Gardens, which were declared a National Monument in 1966, is undergoing a massive transformation and is set to become Kenya’s largest memorial park, honouring heroes, showcasing history, and attracting commerce and convention-goers.
The concert will also showcase some of the best Kenyan DJs including DJ G-Money, DJ Forro, Dj Shaky, DJ Grauchi, CNG and DJ Cream. VVIP and VVIP tickets for the event have since sold out.
The Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) are in charge of managing the event venue, which means that security for the Festival is expected to be sufficient and of a high standard, providing reassurance for those who intend to attend.
