All hail to the king of the decks, because Black Coffe has shown again that he truly owns that title and no one will take it away from him. Star DJ Black Coffee was this weekend in Nairobi, Kenya, where he was shown a lot of love. The concert, which was held at Ngong Race Course in Nairobi, was the ultimate proof of two things: Black Coffee is an international legend, and Kenyans know how to party!
Right from the onset, the energy was insane. The event was set to begin at 1:00 pm, with many opening acts before Black Coffee’s set at 9:00pm. Concert-goers started arriving as early as 12:30pm, contrary to everything you’ve heard about “African timing”.
Tickets sold for Ksh 5000 which is about R674, and while it is a lot of money in Kenya, you couldn’t tell from how packed the audience was. In fact, speaking to ZAlebs, event organizers informed us that VIP tickets, retailing for R1348, sold out a week in advance, and there were only a handful of gate tickets on the day.

A big shout out to the event’s sponsors, Hennessy Kenya, who ensured a big and classy event. Food was in plenty and drinks flowed endlessly, and the crowd was having a marvelous time.
