Popular Kenyan musician Charles Njagua Kanyi – popularly known by his stage name ‘Jaguar’ – is set to make two performances in the US this weekend.

On Friday April 17, he will be at the AR Lounge in Atlanta.

He will then fly out to Massachusetts the following day where he is scheduled to entertain fans at the  ‘Running with the champions’ event.

One of the organisers Ms Mary Bowers said Kenyans in Metropolitan Atlanta are eager to attend the show.

“It has been a while since a musician from Kenya performed here and I can tell you the community here is ready for one of their own. We hope Jaguar will not disappoint,” she said in Atlanta Wednesday.

Jaguar is one of the most recognisable Kenyan secular artists and is best known for his hit song, Kigeugeu. He has and won several music awards throughout his career.

Other songs by the artist include Furaha, Jina Langu, Nikusikize, Kioo and Kipepeo.

On Wednesday, Jaguar posted a photo of himself seated next to athletic champion Catherine Ndereba on a plane.

“Atlanta and Boston, here I come!,” Jaguar wrote on his Facebook wall.

During his US tour, the musician will be hosted by DJs Vinn, Nyandat, Yard, Sam and Wyse.
