The social media was abuzz Friday as photos of Kenyan celebrated gospel artiste Emmy Kosgei surfaced online after she landed at Atlanta’s  Hartsfied Jackson International Airport for this year’s Atlanta Majuu Cultural festival.

The musician was received by the head of the Kenyan American Community Center (KACC), Rev Dr GG Gitahi and Atlanta-based gospel artiste, Naomi Karanja.

On arrival, she posted the following message on Instagram: “Thank you Jesus!! All set.. we kick off this evening #Atlantamajuufestival#KACC He makes everything beautiful at His time! Keep waiting upon the Lord…”

 The event, which  is organised by the Kenyan American Community Church, has been billed as an exhibition and extravaganza featuring a myriad Kenyan-African inter-cultures. KACC has, through such events in the past, added to the cultural tapestry that shapes the American Society which is increasingly becoming multicultural.

Emmy will be the guest performer at  this year’s fete, expected to pull thousands of guests, including other musicians from around the US. She was supposed to grace the first ever Majuu Cultural Festival two years ago but could not make it.

“We are so excited to have her with us,” said Timothy Ndegwa, the KACC administrative secretary and proprietor of Mykenyanlink, an online platform which seeks to connect Kenyan entrepreneurs around the world.

“KACC has been promoting and supporting other Kenya Diaspora communities in celebrating their cultural heritage with great pride and enthusiasm,” wrote Dr Gitahi on Atlanta Majuu Festival’s website.

For the last ten years, the church has, with great passion nurtured and celebrated cultural diversity that is exhibited in the rich Kenya-African culture.

However, Majuu festival was launched some two years ago.

Last year, the festival saw performances by intergenerational artistes. There were also – among other activities – traditional dances, children and youth cultural fashion shows, booths and huts showcasing Kenyan diverse ethnic groups’ cultures and traditions.

“The festival seeks to inform, educate, inspire and entertain those in attendance even as it mesmerizes those who will be experiencing the Kenyan African Culture for the first time,” said Dr Gitahi.”

The event runs through Sunday evening.

Emmy Kosgei-Madubuko is best known for her 2009 hit song, Taunet Nelel, among many others.

Below are some of the social media comments as written by fans of the renowned musician.
