Kenyan artistes among them Wahu, Nyashinki, Njugush, Bahati and Mercy Masika are set to descend on Meru County this weekend.
Why, you ask? Well, the Twaweza Live experience by Safaricom is making its second stop in the ‘land of green gold’ – a series which will culminate in a concert on 23rd June at Kinoru stadium.
Amerucans will be treated to an epic dusk to dawn concert by King Kaka, David Wonder, MC Alemba, DJ Deff, DJ Pierra, DJ Euphoric, DJ Joe Mfalme, Karimi Bruno, GMX The Baite and many others.
At the entrance, you will need an unscratched 100 bob airtime card.
You will also be required to be over 18 years, so carry your national ID as proof and get ready for a night of thrilling live performances from your favourite artistes.
The concert is just a tip of the iceberg of what is in store for the people of Meru who will become part of the Twaweza Live experience.
Earlier in the week, there was a talent hunt which over 250 people participated.
They auditioned before four judges: veteran music producer Eric Musyoka, H_Art the band lead singer Mordecai, DJ Deff and Singer, songwriter Bensoul.
All the winners will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity; the selected musician will have his or her own song recorded by Musyoka in collaboration with Wahu. The hypemaster will be mentored by famed hypeman MC Alemba whilst Deejay Joe Mfalme will mentor the winning deejay.
The winners will also perform during the Concert in Meru on Saturday.
The first runners-up out of each category were awarded Kshs. 30,000 cash from BLAZE, a BLAZE flame device and Kshs. 10,000 worth of airtime.
On Wednesday, locals participated in a farmers’ forum where they learnt how the Digifarm app will use technology to tackle the challenges they face in their farming.
“Digifarm is specially tailored to cater to the specific needs of farmers in each of the counties it is available in, providing localised information and discounted inputs,” Safaricom’s Director of Enterprise Business Rita Okuthe stated.
Meru farmers will especially benefit from the all-around availability of inputs at the depots, especially during peak season, and access to advisory and technical information from experts stationed at each of the depots.
Digifarm is an agribusiness solution tailored for small-holder farmers, providing them with financing, information on different crops and animals in addition to quality, discounted inputs. Farmers can enrol to and access Digifarm by dialling *283#.
And finally, you do not want to miss the free medical camp where checkups, medical advice and screening will be carried out throughout Friday at Kinoru Dispensary Grounds.
