About Event

The April 9th B&W Nairobi Festival will be headlined by AKA, the “Supa Mega” hip-hop star from South Africa. He will run the stage with his chart-topping tracks such as “All Eyes on Me”, “Baddest”, and “The World Is Yours”. We’ll also be enchanted by the revolutionary soul sounds of Nigerian/German Nneka, whose evergreen hits like “Heartbeat”, “Africans”, and “Lucifer”, are bound to move the audience. Kenyan urban soul "Fenamenon”, Fena Gitu, will take it back to the East African scene, where she is currently dominating with hit tracks like “Kama Kawaida”, and “Sema "Ng'we”. The day will begin with a showcase set by the next generation of artists and creatives, identified as Nu Nairobi, and end with Producer/DJ Suraj who will close out the night with his signature sound of electronic beats over ethnic tribal vibes.

Following the theme “Made in KE”, we have created a specially curated pop-up area featuring talented and globally resounding fashion and accessories designers from Kenya—all with special promotional pricing that can’t be found elsewhere.

The curated experiences extend into food and drinks at the festival, with a long list of restaurants, insta-chefs, and street-food vendors bringing their most popular dishes to B&W. Guests can explore a wide offering of dining options, at a great price. In an effort to bring more excitement to Sunday family time, we’re re-imagining the ideas of “Play”, incorporating more parent-child activities that will keep everyone engaged and having fun. "

We’re excited to be back and build on our amazing 2016. In addition to the great festival people have grown to love, we’ve got some new tricks up our sleeves that will make the day even more special. We can’t wait to see you all in April.” – Muthoni Ndonga, Founder of Blankets & Wine and Creative Director, GoodTimes Africa
