With two days left before D-day, we are ready to wear our dancing shoes and show our moves at the Stanbic Yetu Festival. This Saturday, it is all going down at Uhuru Gardens, and I cannot wait to showcase my two left feet and sing horribly off-key. I am stoked for the iconic renditions from Boyz II Men and the musical stylings of Sauti Sol.
Typically, festivals are a no-go for me after hearing about how most of them go down, primarily due to the organizers, but knowing that this year’s festival has quality partners has given me the peace of mind and assurance that it will be not only memorable but equally remarkable. For lovers of old-school R&B, there’s no better time than now to come out and whine down as you wind down!
Boyz II Men has been at the forefront of popular music culture, and let’s not forget the iconic fashion of the quartet that defined the first half of the 1990s. Boyz II Men fused hip-hop and R&B Jazz, redefining the musical landscape and setting themselves at the top of the charts.
In contrast, Sauti Sol’s unique blend of Afro-pop and contemporary R&B bring new sounds to the genre, and the band have set itself apart in the African entertainment scene with classic hits and extravagant styles, redefining the look and feel of the music industry in Kenya and beyond.
This year’s Stanbic Yetu Festival is one for the books; it all goes down on the 10th. Come one, come all, prepared to dance and revel in an unrivalled musical experience.
