Reggae icon visits children’s home in Kenya

In his first visit to Kenya, Jamaican dancehall and reggae icon Buju Banton almost broke down after visiting Msamaria Mwema Children’s Home where he came face to face with the reality of life for the children.

In an emotion-filled interaction, he played with the kids and went on to pledge to put a team together that would try and support the home.

After saying his goodbyes, Buju was introduced to a meal of Kenyan whole fish, which he described as a real delicacy.

Meanwhile, who knew there was something cooking between these two in studio? Well, the Jamaican and Uganda’s Bobi Wine pulled a surprise move in Nairobi last weekend when they took to the stage during a mega concert held at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC). Surprising everyone in attendance, Bobi joined Buju on stage to belt out a single recorded in Jamaica last month.

The all-night show drew thousands of reggae lovers, among them CMB Prezzo, Otile Brown, Jaguar, Shaffie Weru, Jalang’o, Ben Sol and Bien Baraza of Sauti Sol.
