Kenyan Gengetone musician Iyanii has opened up about his experience in performing in Doha, Qatar for the first time.
The musician said that the show by DJ Lyta brought Kenyans and people from different countries together to enjoy.
“The show was very good and it was one of the best experience to see Kenyan coming together to enjoy the so many tunes that were played by DJ Lyta. It was a full vibe and the show was not only made up of Kenyans, we also had people from other countries who came to support us. It was all about good vibes, good energy and good time with friends and family,” Iyanii said.
The ‘pombe’ hit maker added that they received good feedback from the performance which showed how much love Kenyans have for each other.
“I believe this was a great milestone for me as a Kenyan artiste and also for DJ Lyta as a Kenyan DJ. This event put us on the map and showed us the kind of love Kenyans are willing to accord us as long as we put in work. Another good feeling was getting feedback for the fans on how they loved the show and the willingness to see more Kenyans perform in Doha,” said the musician
He further asked event organizers from Qatar to invite more Kenyan artists to perform in their country.
“I believe it will be a wakeup call to other artistes and I hope the event organizer will continue to bring in more Kenyan artistes so that our people in Qatar get to enjoy our music first hand. We want to make sure that even if they are far from home they also get to enjoy our music, Home away from home,” Iyanii added.
