Nyashiski Headlines ‘Destination Africa Festival’ And Kenyans React.

Kenyan rapper Nyamari Ongegu, better known as Nyashinski, closed out the ‘Destination Africa Festival’ at Ngong Racecourse, where Nigerian superstar Adekunle Gold was scheduled to headline, and Kenyans are overjoyed.

Nyashinski, on Nov 7, announced through Instagram that he was going to be the last act at the festival, but  amid recent online debate sparked  by Comedian Eric Omondi, about Kenyan artists merely curtain raising for international artists, this was in doubt.

“For those asking, Gaance ndio anafunga show” Nyashinski said.

Furthermore, on Friday, the rapper revealed that he had a throat illness, putting not only the headlining act, but also the entire performance, in jeopardy.

“FAITH is required in this situation! I’ve had an action-packed week of rehearsals in preparation for the Destination Africa Festivals “Nyashinski penned

“Unfortunately, I caught an infection yesterday that has contaminated my throat and is jeopardizing my performance.” Nyashinski continued.

The rapper did, however, make it to the ‘Destination Africa Festival,’ where he opened for Nigerian musician Adekunle Gold.

Nyashinski did not disappoint in the least.

The ‘Mungu pekee’ hit-maker’s performance was so electrifying that he left netizens asking for more Kenyan artists to headline concerts that bring in international artists.

These are some of the reactions from Kenyans on twitter:
