The last jam
| January 11th 2013
The holiday season finally came to an end, last weekend, with Pulsers thronging Nairobi Cinema where System-Unit was throwing the Back-to-school jam. Sheila Kimani accounts
Quite unlike its usual laidback feel, last Friday evening saw the Nairobi Cinema auditorium get transformed into a buzz of activity as multitudes of teens thronged the premises awaiting a night of fun.
After a series of successful holiday Jam Session shows, the gospel stable was out to close the season with a blast. Top gospel stars and dancer groups had been lined up to entertain Pulsers the entire night and as early a 9pm, hundreds had answered the call. By 11pm, the hall was packed to capacity — with teens who were not only oozing trendy fashion swag but also energy to give the holiday a final kick.
It all begun quiet and easy with a word of prayer and songs of praise and soon, the tempo drastically went up as the spinmasters of the night, DJs Tabbz and Ruff, hit the turntables — to the delight of the jubilant crowd.
A hilarious emcee Njugush and All-Stars Dance troupe warmed the podium with astounding choreography moves before fast-rising comedian Dr Ofweneke took his turn, cracking the masses with his mirthful jokes.
Fresh from the United States where he had been for tour alongside Njugush, AntoNeo-Soul played the emcee and kept the crowd thrilled with his artistic wit as he introduced musician after another to stage.
“This is our gift to the teens who are re-opening schools. We wish them all the best,” DJ Mo charged before the Pulsers cheered back in chorus.
The crowd was thrown into near ecstasy when teen gospel singer Masterpiece of the Kofi Yoo hit single was introduced to them alongside his mentor DK Kwenye Beat. Like a teaser, DK’s Sari Sari acted magic on the already elated crowd and by the time HopeKid got to the podium to sing his Holiday track, the party was on fire.
Other exemplary performances were by Mr T, Hey-Z, Mwenye Haki, Chuchu and Simba Owade’s DK, Jimmy Gait, Willy Paul and Eko-Dydda among many others artistes who brought the house down and kept the energy levels apexes up until the wee hours of the morning — when the deejays took over the show.
