Coast to coast party time
It’s the season to celebrate and already the party fever has struck, write STEVENS MUENDO and PIUS CHERUIYOT
As the Indian Ocean tides swirled towards the Big Tree Beach shore, night action got loud and lewd. With the sunrays disappearing into the distant hills. So did the innocence, characterised by masses on holiday family outings at the beach, seem to have petered out, ushering in a night of carousal and carefree indulgences. Alas!

"Just what do you expect of an event christened the Beach Bikini Party," our good friend Hassan Faisal exclaimed as we made our entry into the Luciano Senzani owned North Coast party joint.
His expression said it all.
You could count up to 2,000 young people. Half of the girls clad in bikini, still wet, straight from taking a swim in the ocean and straight to the disco hall where Kaytrixx and DJ Bonnz kept the party alive with booming music.
The girls danced on the tables, on the poles and walls and everything else they could hung their semi nude bodies on. The men ogled with little to imagine.

The party season is here and true to tradition Nairobi has relocated to Mombasa. From the famous Casuarina in Mtwapa, Cuba Libra, Bobs, Tembo Disco, Pirates and Fullmoon all the way to South Coast, we encountered familiar faces — faces of Nairobians taking Mombasa by storm. Let’s just shelve the Mombasa drama, even the Bikini show, until the coming weeks. We are back to Nairobi.
"Get that mulla buy that ndula…" the sensational hip-hop new kid off the block chanted as the elated crowd joined in chorus.
With Camp Mulla, the new talk about group waiting to unleash a showstopper performance, Octoppizzo was not sparing an iota of his swagger driven act. Being the Ghetto ambassador, as he has christened himself, he wooed the crowd with ingenious reproach. His was a blast.
The Impala Grounds hosted two-day Erevuka event and attracted dozens of school leavers. Besides the showbiz spice up, which carried the day, the bonanza was an array of innovative activities as young artistes showcased their talent. The theme of the event centred on encouraging youth to work on their innovations for self-sustenance amidst fun and recreation activities.
Camp Mulla, the new urban rapping group composed of Taio Tripper, Young Kass, Super-Producer K’Cous, Miss Karun, the First Lady and Mykie Tuchi, the road manager, took to the stage with intent. Their melodious and goofy party rhymes of their now popular Singles Low, Party don’t Stop and Feel no Pain were delivered with wit and energy and the crowd could not resist the sensational magic.
And away at Mamba Club in Karen that Saturday night, DNG was hosting the much-hyped ‘Party in the Wild’ concert. It was slated to be the biggest concert of the weekend and not even the heavy downpour that pounded Nairobi that night could not dampen the mood of the upbeat revellers.
It was wet and muddy. The girls soaked it up with their short and revealing party dresses and shorts giving little care to the freezing weather.
The groovy jams stirred everyone up. It was dance and wild madness in the rain.
Even though the event did not hit the expected numbers, the few who showed up enjoyed to their fill.
"I think the rain has stopped most of the guys from coming," noted DNG, the brains behind the gig.
Earlier that weekend, the Pulse crew had been invited to attend the new celebrity basketball sensation, which this time round had been souped-up with a motor riders showdown.
Then came the Ololo video launch, Emmy Kosgey’s new release unveiled at the Nairobi Pentecostal Church (NPC) on Sunday.
As early as 2pm, the church was full to the raptors. The gospel fraternity, counting from award-winning gospel stars Kambua Manundu, Esther Wahome, Victor Mbuvi, Daddy Owen and the veteran Kassangas gospel family had heeded the call to celebrate yet another milestone in Emmy’s illustrious singing career.
With her electrifying group of dancers, Emmy kept true to her award-winning brand, thrilling the enthusiastic faithful to the limit. It was song and dance, laced with humorous interludes as the rather jolly star kept the crowd engaged. At the end of the day, we found the party had just begun at the top of the class, Sailors Club in Hurlingham. Again, Pulse was on the prowl as we joined celebrities who had thronged the venue to celebrate the club’s first anniversary.
The magnificent club — with three floors, two disco jams and awesome ambiance — was full to capacity as the clock hit 7pm. Several celebrities among them Fundi Frank, Cannibal, Kenzo, Nick Odhiambo, Jaguar DJ and Mr T were among the notable stars. The cutting of the cake marked the climax of the celebration, a thrill that went on until daybreak.
