Groove party held in Nakuru and Machakos for the first time

The Groove party, an extravaganza of gospel music, dance and worship, moved out of its traditional home in Nairobi this year to two new locations.

Machakos and Nakuru were chosen to host the 2016 edition of the Groove Party in a bid to reach out to more people in the counties.

The first Groove party event was held at the KICC, but with numbers growing, was moved to Nyayo stadium and eventually to Kasarani Sports Centre in order to accommodate the growing number of fans attending the fete.


This year’s event, whose theme was “Back to the Cross”, was held in twin events at Machakos People’s Park in Machakos County and the Nakuru Athletics Club in Nakuru County.

The artistes line-up for Nakuru included Mercy Masika, Bahati, Kris Eeh Baba, Jimmy Gait, Kelele Takatifu and Shiru wa GP.

The Machakos event had Size 8, Gloria Muliro, Guardina Angel, Evelyn Wanjiru and Magic Mike among others.

Last year, the event featured over 50 performers including international artistes on three stages at Safaricom Stadium in Kasarani.
