Juliani’s Na3 Concert
His energy on stage is infectious and his music continues playing in your head long after it’s over. He is one of Kenya’s greatest entertainers and comes top of my list, together with The Villagers Band. Missing an opportunity to see him on stage is something I’d regret so even if it was a Sunday evening after a busy weekend out of town, I had to carry my tired body to City Hall Way for Juliani’s Na3 Concert.The main concert started a couple of hours after the advertised time which helped me not miss any of the performers.
Rib tickler Obina did a good job as MC.
One of my highlights of the evening was watching and listening to Recapp. I’d never heard them before and they were nothing short of brilliant doing acappella versions of some of Juliani’s hits.

Juliani got on stage at about 18h30 and was immediately off stage.
DJ Mo, Size 8 and Christian Dela were some of the fellow entertainers in the VIP section showing their support for Juliani.
Wambui Kamiru, Bob Collymore and Sarah Rimbui.
National Bank used Juliani’s concert to launch their Na3 card, which allows for cashless payment of bus fare across existing payment platforms.
Juliani showcased two new music videos and performed songs from his third album Exponential Potential.
It was a pleasant surprise to see food blogger Gatuiri and her husband jamming to Juliani.
At the end of his performance, Juliani called on other musicians to freestyle to ‘Shuka Roho’. Kaka Sungura was first on stage.
Moji wa Kelele Takatifu.
In my opinion, Willy Paul had the best message in his freestyle. With all the rumours about his character, he asked the audience to just let him praise God. We cheered him on.
Thanks Juliani for giving me the opportunity to praise God in head bopping, thought-provoking hip-hop.
