Kirk Franklin's Kenyan concert a success!

Unfortunately I could not make it for the Kirk Franklin concerts this past weekend(for obvious reasons), but from all accounts it was a success with about 30,000 people attending the Celtel Xtreme Life events. The event started at 6:00pm with Pastors James and Nzimbi as the masters of ceremony.

Opening acts included SK Blue and The City Lights Dancers who adorned traditional African dress. Other acts included Jemimah Thion'go who brought the house down with her big hit Mwenye Baraka. Other attractions included skateboarders from the Xtreme Sports team.

Right after this Kirk Franklin, the man all were there to see took to the stage to a thunderous reception from the massive crowd. He got right into it, with a flawless set together with his excellent backing band who went through his famous songs both old and recent, from Lovely Day to moving worship numbers like My Life, My All.


Not to be left out were the recent classic hit Imagine Me and from the EW&F:Interpretations CD; September. As the crowds got increasingly restless and started demanding his most well known smash Stomp, Kirk gave in and gave them just what they wanted and together with the Rodney Jerkins co-produced hit Revolution he brought the entire venue into a dancing frenzy. With this perfect closing he left the stage and left all who attended very satisfied. What an excllent and unforgettable weekend it was for all who attended.
