The inaugural Made in Kenya Experience concert which was set to take place this coming Saturday on 3rd July 2021 has been postponed.
In an official statement to the media, the organizers of the concert Aizniaz Entertainment announced that they had postponed the concert to the 28th of August 2021. Expounding on their reasons, the organizers cited that they wanted more time to ensure that the concert would be a Covid-19 Free zone, in adherence to the Ministry of Health guidelines.
“Aizniaz Entertainment as the organizers of the Made in Kenya Experience concert supports the government efforts in combating the COVID-19 pandemic and is keen on adhering to the Ministry of Health guidelines by ensuring the concert is a COVID-19 free zone.
“Bearing this in mind we would wish to announce that after careful consideration with all stakeholders involved, organizers, artists, vendors, sponsors, and partners we shall be postponing the concert to a new date which will be on 28th August 2021,” part of the statement read.
Speaking out following the postponement announcement, Nyashinski who was set to headline the concert alongside Mejja, Otile Brown, and other renowned Kenyan artists urged the government to step up and support the entertainment and events sectors that have been adversely affected by the pandemic.
“While I encourage us to stay safe during this time, it is important for the government to step up and support the events industry. I have not performed for more than a year now and I was really looking forward to seeing you all this Saturday. It’s unfortunate that the Made in Kenya Concert has been postponed yet again due to the permits from the government. Our leaders should lay a strategy to support the events, entertainment, and all the struggling sectors. Peace and Love,” he posted.
