By Judith Gicobi
At the Kasarani Stadium, preparations for the swearing-in of William Ruto as Kenya’s fifth president are in full swing.
Along with military exercises and security inspections, entertainment groups were perfecting on the finishing touches of their dance movements and vocal synchronization on Monday, September 12.
At least 60,000 Kenyans are anticipated to attend the event where at least 11 acts are slated to perform.
Local performers will, however, be the focus of the show, and there will already be screens placed inside the stadium to accommodate everyone in attendance.
These are some of the expected performers:
Florence Mureiithi’s (Usikiyae Maombi)
The lead song for the inauguration ceremony will be Florence Mureithi’s popular gospel hymn He Who Answers Prayers (Usikiyae Maombi).
Exray, a Gengetone artist, is among the main performers scheduled to appear during William Ruto’s presidential inauguration ceremony.
His song has been heavily incorporated into William Ruto’s campaign caravans and tours, to the point where the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) National Delegates Conference even featured the same music.
Sanaipei Tande popularly known by stage name Sana, is a talented Kenyan singer, composer, actor, karaoke host, radio personality, and performer who dominated the airwaves in the 2000s. Wangu is one of the songs the multi-talented singer has appeared in featuring fellow musician Nadia Mukami.
Guardian Angel and his wife Esther Musila
At the occasion, Guardian Angel and his wife Esther Musila are anticipated to perform. The pair provided confirmation after they posted a video of the rehearsals at Kasarani Stadium as they prepared for Tuesday’s major event.
“It’s day two of rehearsals. I’m here to do that thing,” stated Guardian as his wife Esther echoed his words.
Nadia Mukami, a singer and composer from Kenya, is best known for the popular singles “Si Rahisi” and “Radio Love,” which both feature Arrow Bwoy.
The singer was given a responsibility by the incoming president, William Ruto, to oversee a committee of creatives charged with selecting someone to serve on his advisory council.
