Whether performing with a Kikuyu accent as Man Njoro or as the polished Nemesis, Kevin’s wit and lyricism is highly entertaining. A collaboration with rapper Rabbit on Uko Sure showed his talent for crafty storytelling.

KIU
Inspired by singers like Zahara, Asa and India Arie, Kenyan songstresses, Tracy, Rosa and Pauline are fast-rising trio, Kiu. Here to quench Nairobi’s unquenchable thirst for quality music, Kiu blends its harmonies effortlessly, each with their own unique voice and unmatched musical ability. Past performances include Brew Bistro’s Oktoberfest, World Music Day (Fete de la Musique) at Alliance Francaise, Ndovu Zetu/Blankets and Wine at the UN recreational grounds, among others.
