Elani snub Channel O Awards
Fast rising music trio Elani, have decided to skip attending the Channel O awards in Johannesburg, South Africa for their own show in Nairobi.
Elani, nominated in the Best East African Act category in this year’s awards, will be doing their first concert in Nairobi at Impala grounds, tonight, Saturday, November 29.
Multichoice Kenya, the organizers and facilitators of the trip to South Africa, declined to explain why Elani did not travel.
Sources close to Elani say that they had already planned about the concert way before they got the Channel O nomination.
However, Sauti Sol, also nominated in the awards left for Jo’Burg Saturday morning for the event.
Other Kenyans attending the awards include singer Victoria Kimani, who was not a nominee, but is scheduled to perform at the event.
