Celebrated Kenyan rapper King Kaka, Sauti Sol, and Uganda’s Eddy Kenzo are lineup to headline the 2023 USA Madaraka Festival.
The annual concert will be going down from May 16 to May 26 with the stars performing at 5 different venues.
According to DJ Calvince aka the Dark Fella who is the official promo partner to the event – Madaraka Festival is out to export East African music to the Diaspora audience.
"For a long time East Africa has been on the back bench when it comes to championing African music in the diaspora. West Africa has been dominating the major platforms and I believe Sauti Sal, King Kaka and Eddy Kenzo are coming to change that narrative. Let us give them the full support and let's make history together,” DJ Calvince said.
Other who are lineup to perform at the unforgettable Memorial Week performance are Anthony Cole, Tacoma Refugee Choir and One Vibe Band.
“Get ready to experience the beats and rhythms of Africa at the House of Blues in Dallas, Texas on May 24th! Join us for an unforgettable night of music and culture as we showcase some of the best artists and talents ( Sauti Sol , Eddy Kenzo , King Kaka, Anthony Cole ) . Don't miss out on this one-of-a-kind festival and immerse yourself in the vibrant sounds of Africa. See you there ,” the Dark Fella shared.
Rapper King Kaka is also using his social to alert his diaspora fans that he will be in the US in May.
On the other hand, Sauti Sol put up a poster of the upcoming Madaraka Festival saying; “Coming to America 🇺🇸, tell a friend! 🔥🚀 #SautiSolUSATour23 @madarakafestival. Tickets now on sale,”.
DJ Calvince who has been promoting the much-anticipated festival is not a new name in the entertainment scene.
He has established a base in the US - to be precise Dallas Texas, as an entrepreneurial entertainer. The DJ has been rubbing shoulders with reputable names in the US, as he pushes Kenyan music on a global stage.
