Super stars Shaggy & Eve

Grammy Award-winning American rapper Eve Jihan Jeffers brushed off criticism that her rapping career had been overshadowed by her acting passion before treating Nairobi to a thrilling performance which East Africa will not forget anytime soon.

At the Carnivore Grounds, Nairobi, the well endowed 1978-born rocked the stage like a teenage girl and sang hit after hit to an ecstatic crowd estimated at 6,000.
Neither the bad weather, characterised by a heavy downpour, nor the rumours, that had spread through Nairobi that the Tusker All Stars concert was headed for a flop, could gag her debut Kenyan bonanza.
And by the end, her efforts won her praise and admiration arguably becoming the best female showbiz star to be witnessed in Kenya.

Singing her billboard smash hits among them her 1999 debut Let there be Eve, Love is Blind, Let me blow your Mind and Who’s that Girl, off the 2001 Scorpion project, the multi-talented star won the hearts of thousands, some of whom had flown form neighbouring Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, South Sudan and Nigeria just to watch the show.
Her Gangsta Lovin’ hit (a collaboration with Alicia Keys), one of the most successful in her Eve-Olution album was one of the masterpieces of a night during which she seemed to extol her fellow American lady superstars as she did teases of their tracks among them the now popular Beyonce single, Girl (Who rule the World).

The concert lived-up to its great hype with exhilarating performances by top acts from Uganda and Tanzania before the new Angolan sensation Ivo Manuel Lemus a.k.a Cabo Snoop took to the stage with rip-roaring comic relief.
Religiously, the crowd joined his well-choreographed footwork identified with his Kuduro inspired Windek hit whose chorus the masses sang like a national anthem.
Grammy-Award winning Jamaican-American reggae singer Orville Richard Burrell a.k.a Shaggy did not disappoint.

In an effort to reinvent his singing career spanning well over 15 years, the dancehall star employed experience, skill and wit to wow the crowd and bring the curtain down with hits such as Boombastic, Hey Sexy Lady, Church Heathen and Feel the Rush.
