It was a double treat for Nairobi revelers last weekend as they were treated to a two-day party of the Koroga Festival held at the Carnivore Grounds.

Saturday was the party starter which was strictly limited to adults. It saw DJ Protégé, DJ Kace, Foozak, Suraj, EA Wave and DJ Slick entertain the crowd through the afternoon and the night.

Wanjira Longauer and Miano Muchiri were the oh-so-entertaining MCs for the first part of the festival.

The Koroga Festival is a bi-monthly event that celebrates African acts. The event is hosted by Capital FM. This was the 18th Edition.

The Festival’s first edition was held in May 2014 with the Afro-fusion band Freshlyground headlining. The Festival has since grown to be one of the top anticipated events by Nairobi revelers.
