Here's Why You Can't Miss the 18th Koroga Edition


Back with a bang and bringing all the energy is our all time favorite festival; Koroga. This time east meets west as the legendary D’Banj, the eclectic Eric Wainaina and  the contemporary Nairobi Horns Project will be bringing the house down during the Sunday show. Do we even need to introduce D’Banj? 

We reckon his hype anthem Oliver Twist is one of the reasons afrobeat will join the leagues of “mumble rap” and electronic music as absolute party essentials. Believe it or not, Oliver Twist reached the top 10 UK singles chart in 2012. How incredible is that?! Not convinced? Look at all the jams with Afro Beats stars featuring Drake or Major Lazer. Afrobeat is indeed going places!

D’banj was at some point signed with Sony Music Entertainment and featured Snoop Dog in the classic Endowed. He’s also responsible for tunes that we simply can’t get out of our heads like Fall In Love, the classic Emergency and his latest hit It’s Not a Lie. With 29 Awards under his belt, D’ Banj is guaranteed to rock this 18th Koroga Festival edition.

The best part about Koroga Festival is you have a golden headliner and additional phenomenal acts such as Eric Wainaina. Eric is a Berklee College of Music alumnus. He graduated with honors and went on to release the patriotic Daima and Nchi ya Kitu Kidogo. He also produced the musical play Mofaya that sold out at the New York Musical Theatre Festival. He’s also represented Kenya at the Fifa World Cup closing concert in 2010. He’s had several accomplishments, one being he’s one of the most impressive Kenyan live musicians we’ve seen on stage. Koroga will also feature Nairobi Horns Project, the First Kenyan Band Fronted by a Horn Section. 

Wait, there’s more! A Saturday show featuring Dj Kace, Dj Suraj, Dj Foozak, Dj Protégé, EA Wave, Dj Slik . This party starter will get you moving, as each of these DJs knows just how to get the crowd turnt.

The music’s not the only attraction. Koroga has the best street food with multiple vendors on site. Koroga’s also got plenty of drinks and beautiful people to keep your thirst at bay (You can insert an emoji here sunglasses one perhaps). Tickets for the Saturday show go for Ksh.1,000, the Sunday show for Ksh.2,000 and the coveted season ticket for Ksh. 2,500. Once you’ve made your purchase prepare your wide-brimmed hats, your folding camp chairs and your Ankara fashion. We’re about to witness another illustrious Koroga Festival.
