\\ Habida plans series of themed events + reality TV Show
The talented Kenyan artist returns with uniquely themed event series that will have her fans treated to quality live performances plus a new TV Show
The Kenyan entertainment scene has been on a rapid growth over the past few years as artists and event organizers mark great milestones that have put the country on the map with showcases to note, last year, a number of high profile events were held in the capital and other cities featuring both the very best of local acts and some of the reigning names in the African and international circles, a trend that saw many in the music scene reckon that indeed the industry was going through an entirely new transformation and not just a whistlestop.
As the industry takes on various forms of growth, talented musician, performer and actress Habida has kicked off a series of events that will include uniquely themed performances, she has chosen to offer a different kind of experience for her fans, by fashioning a uniquely eclectic experience that will see her host performances at themed events offering a rich experience with a kind of exclusivity that pairs a great synthesis of maximalist offerings and the basics of incredible live performances.
The award-winning artist recently held a well-attended valentine’s event at the Park Inn by Radisson blu in Nairobi’s Westlands, where she performed some of her music that mostly featured her new sound, as she belted out some of her unreleased songs. The night experience saw her treat her fans to exquisite Spanish delicacies and a taste of Spanish wine, the charmed event had guests treated to an 8-course meal and to spice it all up an experimental eating experience, where specific food was eaten blindfolded, with a glove and with straws.
The singer plans to hold more themed events which she hopes will elevate the face of the country’s entertainment scene as she builds on her career. “I want to give the industry different kinds of events and upgrade the standard of events in the country as I continue to establish myself as an artist without accepting any mediocrity” Habiba says
The singer has also announced that she would be launching a new reality TV show dubbed I AM that is in line with her trilogy The journey to I AM and will be aired on one of the local TV stations and also streamed on YouTube. The show, created with the woman in mind, is a visual description of that woman who can get to do anything if she keeps her focus and believe in herself despite all the stereotyping. The singer will use her show to give her fans a chance to get to know how she does her music, mothering, business, home and more so as to empower them.
She however has yet to release the date for the launch and the TV station likely to air her show.
Meanwhile, the next themed event, which she has revealed will be focusing on women, will be held in March.
Habida has been in South Africa working under Gallo Records and plans to use her return to play a key part in growing the Kenyan music and entertainment industry. She is currently working on a new album which is expected to carry her new sound.
Searching is her first release off The journey to I AM trilogy, a 3 part series of Habida’s journey in her search for success, love and happiness
