Former prime minister Raila Odinga alias Baba has entertained partygoers after making a surprise visit to the much-hyped Luo Festival at the Ngong Racecourse.
An auspicious event
The Luo Festival finally took place after it was cancelled in August due to COVID-19 protocols.
Revellers started thronging the venue as at early as 2 pm as they could not wait to watch their favourite artists entertain them.
Some artists including Akothee made remarkable entrances using choppers to the event.
Before he made an appearance, the event MC, Jalang’o had mentioned that the top politician could join the crowd.
Raila made his grand entrance to the party with his guards a few minutes to midnight.
The revellers were quick to identify his convoy and they all hailed him as he makes for the stage.
While at the stage, Raila pulled the crowd with his signature dance and his witty address.
The revellers could be heard chanting his name as he made his speech.
“Are you ready? Are prepared as soldiers of Baba?” Raila posed to the crowd.
Reactions to the post
“Baba has literally improved his dancing moves from, Gengetone, Kikuyu songs and reggae.”
“Where are we attending Church today, Jakom.”
“The event was a success, I wish we could have a Mijikenda Festival.”
“Energy you got is unmatched that’s my ideal 5th.”
Jalang’o denies pocketing ticket money
As previously reported by TUKO.co.ke, the comedian recently responded to people accusing him of taking the cash he collected from the much-hyped Luo Festival that was cancelled due to COVID-19 protocol measures.
Jalang’o said he never touched a single cent from ticket sales and assured those who had purchased tickets that they will be considered on November 27, which will be a make-up event for the cancelled one.
“Some people went to Edgar Obare claiming I pocketed the ticket charges. Some were also saying that I want to use the money to the campaign. Those are lies, I can assure you that your tickets are valid. All the money that was collected were sent to a Till number. In fact, I have never touched any coin,” he said.
