Chris Brown and Wizkid Set to Perform in Kenya

American R&B superstar Chris Brown and his Nigerian counterpart Wizkid will be performing in Mombasa, Kenya, on Saturday, October 8th. The duo will be headlining the 2016 Mombasa Rocks Music Festival at the Nyali Golf Club.  The upcoming Kenyan performance is a sign of the deepening friendship forming between the two artists who have collaborated multiple times since 2013. It also serves as an example of how stars from Africa and America can use music to bridge the cultural divide.

On October 3rd, Brown promoted the #MombasaRocks concert:

According to AllAfrica, the duo will be also sharing the stage with Tanzanian musical star Ali Kiba. Brown’s performance on Saturday will be the first time the Grammy award-winner has rocked a Kenyan stage. Wizkid, on the other hand, has performed in the country several times before.

Brown and Wizkid have established a strong working and personal relationship over the last three years, according to 36NG.

They have already collaborated on four songs and have been pictured hanging out in Los Angeles, in addition to sharing the stage for multiple performances in Europe and Africa.

Back in May, Brown invited Wizkid on his two-month “One Hell Of A Nite” European tour to promote his seventh studio album, Royalty.

Fans of the two stars can get their Mombasa Rocks concert tickets on  JamboLife and Ticketsasa.

Tickets are currently on sale for 10,000 Kenyan shillings ($100) to 20,000 Kenyan shillings ($200) for VIP packages.
