Over ten local artistes who have signed with the Safaricom Kenya Live programme paid a courtesy call to Iten Primary School in their second last installment of the Safaricom Kenya Live CSR event in Eldoret.
While there, they treated the children to a day filled with music performances and motivational talks on children who aspire to be musicians. They also presented a cheque of Sh50,000 to the school.
The artistes who called on the pupils included Nameless, Wahu, Allan Aaron, Ally B, Jua Cali, M.O.G, Phonotex Success Band, Redsan, Blavion, Freeman, Kavale and Poqpine. Also joining the artistes on the visit was Safaricom Brand Assets Manager Virginia Wanyanga.
The artistes also donated food items to the pupils and joined them for lunch a day before the Safaricom Kenya Live gig in Eldoret.
The visit was part of the Safaricom Kenya Live CSR programme that sees the artistes interact with children and disadvantaged populations on each tour of their performances.
Now, the finale of the Safaricom Kenya Live gigs take place in Nairobi’s Nyayo stadium on Saturday October 8.
