Kisumu City is set to be on fire this weekend as the creme de la creme in the Kenyan film industry stages the annual Riverwood Awards at the Acacia Hotel.

The convoy leaves Nairobi on Friday morning, with one of the major sponsors, DT Dobie, providing transport for the nominees and other support crew. The office of the Governor, Kisumu, will receive them.

Also in support of the awards is Machakos Government, under the Machawood entertainment banner.

This year saw the entries triple, with some coming from as far as Uganda and Rwanda. Meanwhile, Nairobi-based DJ Mellow will be at Club da Place that same weekend to entertain guests.
