Popular Kenyan gospel disc jockey, Jackson Viera, popularly known by his stage name DJ Rimshot, is back on the decks after a failed political bid.

DJ Rimshot will on Friday, December 16, 2022, offer Nairobians an early Christmas send-off package with performances at the Nairobi Festival at Uhuru Park.

DJ Rimshot unsuccessfully for the Member of County Assembly (MCA) position on a United Democratic Alliance (UDA) ticket.

“I want to thank Governor Johnson Sakaja, who is the convener and brainchild of the Nairobi Festival for inviting me to perform. I will not disappoint the Nairobians who plan to attend my show. My fans should expect a master-class performance,” he said.

The week-long festival, which started on Monday, December 12, 2022, is a fun-filled fair aimed at celebrating the ‘vibe of the city’.

“It’s about the vibe, the people, our culture, it’s about the positioning and how to sell to the world. From December 12 to 17, and every year, we are going to be coming together to showcase who we are,” Governor Sakaja said.

The festival brings together food, the arts, matatu art awards, as well as exhibitions on designated city streets.

Media personality Shaffie Weru, who is the lead organizer of the festival told our reporter ”We have over 50 signed artists who will be on stage across the week. Our main acts will be on stage on Friday and  Saturday.

“We have over 35 DJs, from the city. We have given priority to the people from Nairobi city only.”

“We assure you this is a first and we expect a lot to happen, we expect big numbers. I can tell everyone in Nairobi to come and enjoy. It is going to be what you see in other big concerts brought to you by the county for absolutely nothing.”
