The US house music trio comprising super producer Diplo, DJ Walshy Fire and DJ Jillionaire, better known as Major Lazer, brought the house down at Carnivore with a sensational performance that had the crowd mesmerized and on its feet, singing their songs word for word.
The electronic dance music powerhouse won the crowd over with their recently released Afrobeats mix, and renditions of songs with popular Kenyan slang phrases as they waved the Kenyan flag on stage, paying homage to their African roots.
Though the night had a lot of ups, the event did experience a couple of downs including mismanagement at the entrance while getting in which caused a lot of pushing, yelling and commotion.
During the concert, Tuborg, the main sponsors, launched their campaign ‘Tuborg Open’ which endorses the power of an open spirit and encourages youth to be more inquistive and open to the opportunites the world has to offer through sharing experiences with others and breaking mainstream boundaries.
Tuborg, the Danish lager brand, announced the return of their successful music campaign Tuborg OPEN, which this year sees global pairing Diplo and MØ exploring musical influences and creating new collaboration tracks with artists from around the world.
Now in its second year, Tuborg OPEN is once again bringing together a group of incredible musicians to create something truly special; a song with one global message but the story told in a different way by each collaborating artist, using their own unique lyrics and reflecting the diversity and unique local culture. The Kenyan version is set to be out very soon so watch out fi dis 😎
“We believe in being a culturally relevant and youth-centric brand and will do our part in supporting the growth of local music talent in Kenya,” stated Renee Kamau, Tuborg Marketing Manager.
