Queen of Neo Soul In Nairobi

Erykah Badoula gives thrilling Tusker Lite performance
The crowd surged to the front when emcees Cess Mutungi and Edward Kwach announced that the Queen of Neo Soul was on her way to the stage, Erykah Badu.
Her band struck up the chords and beat the drums in dramatic fashion to invite the persona on stage that was the reason for the Tusker Lite Experience on December 11.
“Nairobi,” she said and a wave of cheers was the response she got…and the most magnanimous performance the city has ever seen began.Dressed in an orange hat, poncho, hoodie and heels, Erykah started off her performance, accentuated by earthy hand movements, a synthesizer, screams and controlled echoes – but soon the poncho, hoodie, and heels were off. And she showed love to Nairobi through her music like only she can.
