Anthony David draws huge crowd in Nairobi concert

Anthony David
American singer and songwriter Anthony David performed in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, recently at the National Park in a concert dubbed ‘The Lounge Unplugged’. Known for his hit ‘Words‘, featuring India Arie, he wowed the crowd with his songs, including some from his fourth album, ‘As Above, So Below‘. One of the singers he collaborates with is his cousin, Shawn Stockman, from the group Boys II Men.

Before Anthony got on stage, Kenyan group Elani opened the show. Elani is an Afro-soul musical group (or urban-afro as they like to term themselves) made up of Maureen Kunga, Wambui Ngugi, Bryan Chweya and Kimani Kibe. Their name means ‘light’ in the Giriama language. After their showcase, Anthony got on stage wearing a t-shirt made by Kenyan fashion house Urban Legend, to the delight of his swooning female fans.
After the event, fans got a chance to meet and greet the Grammy-nominated singer and get his autograph.  In an interview with Hot Secrets, Anthony said he is a Wangari Maathai fan. He admitted that she was one of the topics he looked up before coming to Kenya. He and his band also managed to sample part of Kenya’s nightlife. “ I loved listening to the music. Like we went to this club that played some really nice reggae, Kenyan, and Tanzanian music. That was fun.”  The show was sponsored by KCB Advantage and Capital FM.
