The event dubbed Street Bash has been doing rounds allover the country, providing the loyal Telkom customer an opportunity to experience a good musical experience. The event happened in Mombasa on the 2nd of July and I think we could say that it left a mark.
The first Street Bash went down on the 9th of July at the KICC, Nairobi, with Sauti Sol, Octopozzo, and Mercy Masika as the main acts, though Fena Gitu and Kelele Takatifu also graced the event.
This was followed by the Kisumu Street Bash which happened on 16th June at the Simba Union Grounds. The main acts were Octopizzo and Osogo Owinya.
This event unfortunately hit a tragic end after dozens of revelers leaving the entertainment spot got robbed and brutally injured by unknown people. The event that meant to promote the newly re-launched telecommunication company left a number of Kisumu residents without their valuables as phones, wallets, cameras and money.
That however was just a bend. It did not stop the bash from going on as they blessed the residents of Nakuru with a musical day on the 24th of June. The main acts at the Nakuru Athletics club were Kristoff, Avril, and Femi one.
The Telkom Street Bash went down on the 8th of July at the Eldoret Sports Club , with Octopizzo, Timmy T Dat and Ba’ Mdogo as the main acts.
But that was after the major Next Move Mombasa Street Concert that happened on at the iconic Mama Ngina driTop Kenyan celebrated artistes Octopizzo, Ali B, Timmy Tdat and Nyota Ndogo brought Mombasa to a halt as they brought down the biggest Street bash as it went down in style!
Deejayed by the celebrated DJ’s Hassan and Andie and hyped by MC’s DNG and Mombasa’s Tony Boy, the thrilling concert as expected turned out to be a sumptuous hit fest of stage shattering performances for the thousands of the Mombasa crowd.
The Dabs Dance crew was also present to rock the Mombasa crowd.
Speaking after the concert, Octoppizo said,
“I’m excited to be in Mombasa and see so many fans here appreciating my music and those of other Kenyan artists like Ali B, Timmy Tdat and many more. I am sure that we will have an even bigger turn out if we go back again. It is clear that this was a party not to be missed especially for Telkom loyal consumers and our fans.”
Commenting on the bash, Telkom Chief for Corporate Communications, George Mlaghui said that the Mombasa party was part of Telkom’s new vibrant and energetic direction to excite their customers.
“Our new brand is customer centric and recognizes the resonance of music and entertainment in our customers’ dynamic lifestyles which we are happy to be part of.” said Mlaghui.
