Previously it was to be held at KICC
The much-anticipated Chris Martin’s Big Deal Concert have been moved to Impala Grounds, Ngong Road due to the unpredictable weather and rains that have rocked the city.
In an explainer, organizers of the Big deal concert also noted that the overwhelming response it has gotten in terms of attendance raised security concerns hence the need of a bigger venue.
The top reggae and dancehall artiste (Chris Martin) jetted into the country on Tuesday in company of dancehall artistes; D Major and Future Fambo.
Speaking on the latest development the event organizers said, “Following the unpredictable weather and rains that have rocked the city, we have decided to change the venue to Impala Grounds. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and promise the fans a great experience featuring the best of international and local music, food and lifestyle -#NobodyCanStopReggae.”
The Big Deal concert is a collaboration endorsed, as a result of the MOU signed between the Ministry of Culture, Gender Entertainment and Sports of Jamaica during H.E President Uhuru Kenyatta’s state visit early this year encouraging the participation of our cultural and creative practitioners in festivals in the two countries.
Strong cultural links
The partnership seeks to enhance strong cultural links between Kenya and Jamaica.
The Big deal concert will also see Kenya’s finest superstars – Bensoul, Elani, Masauti, KRG the Don, Havoc, Jfam among others grace the stage alongside the Jamaican trio of Chris Martin, D Major, and Future Fambo.
