Kenya’s conscience singer Juliani will be leading a contingent of artists in partnership with county governments to launch a multi-cultural music, food, and fashion campaign that is aimed at uniting Kenyans from all sets of life from the effects of the post-August 17 presidential elections.
Juliani has been “missing in action" for some time for reasons best known to himself.
However, the musician is expected to resurface through a major campaign dubbed Kenyan Love Story Festival that will happen on February 10, 2018.
“For a very long time, we have always celebrated Valentine’s day with our loved ones – our girlfriends, boyfriends, husbands, wives. This year and for the very first time, we are adding a different twist to it. We will be leading Kenyans in celebrating our diversity as expressed through music, food and our different cultures,” notes Juliani.
The festival, whose tickets go for Sh1000 and Sh5000 for regular and VIPs respectively, is scheduled to take place at the Kenyatta International Conference Center (KICC).
Artistes including among others, Gilad, H_Art, Mike Rua, Ayrosh, Dolla Kabary, Nyota Ndogo, and Mundu Mulusi are expected to grace the occasion.
“Right now, the country is politically divided and so we are coming together as artists to find a solution towards spreading love in the country. Next month – February is a month of love, so while we share our love with hubbies, let us also take some time and love our country and people. We have nowhere else to go,” said Juliani.
“We look forward to people turning up in large numbers as we celebrate our diversity and love through the Kenyan love story festival. The festival will provide an opportunity for us to reflect on our love for the country and people,” concluded Juliani.
