Children have fun with celebrities

All roads led to Nyayo National Stadium on May 4, as children and celebrities attended the Milo Kids Festival. The aim of the event is to nurture children to realise their full potential. The theme for this year’s festival, which was the ninth edition, was ‘Creating Champions Every Day’.

Both children and adults had an opportunity to interact with their favourite celebrities, including musicians, deejays and comedians.

They also participated in activities such as Crazy Olympics, ball games, trampolines, balloon shaping and face painting, with the climax of the event being a concert featuring thrilling live performances by various artistes, including Daniel ‘Churchill’ Ndambuki, Daddy Owen, DNA, Eric Omondi and MC Jessy.

The event’s show stopper was the grand entrance by comedians Churchill and Eric Omondi, who rode into the venue in a horse-drawn carriage. Artiste DNA also wowed the crowd when he arrived in a white helicopter as the crowd was showered with confetti.

In his address, Churchill, the founder of Laugh Industry, which co-organised the festival, highlighted the importance of providing children with an educative and entertaining platform to enable them realise their full potential.

“Children are the future of this country and we want them to meet their role models to encourage, guide and inspire them. We will continue to tailor our activities to meet children’s needs and demands, and will always endeavour to teach and empower children to become the best they can be through sports and other outdoor activities,” he added.

Svetlana Obruchkova, Nestlé Kenya’s managing director, told Generation Next: “We are very glad to have partnered with Laugh Industry in the Kids Festival because Milo has always believed that sports have qualities that set the foundation for a child’s future.”

She added that the partnership underscores Milo’s commitment to sporting activities that teach positive values and build children’s characters, shaping the people they will be in the future.
