Jamaican dancehall star Shenseea to perform in Nairobi

Jamaican dancehall star Chinsea Linda Lee, known professionally as Shenseea, has confirmed that she will perform in Kenya at Uhuru Gardens on August 26.

The ShenYeng Anthem hitmaker singer shared the news with her fans on Instagram. She expressed her excitement for the much-anticipated performance in the country where she will entertain revellers at the Sababisha Festival.

“Kenya, I’m coming on August 26th at Uhuru Gardens,” she shared.

With the age limit for the festival set at 21 years and above, attendees must part with Sh3,000 for regular and Sh8,000 for VIP tickets.

The Jamaican star has many hits, like her Blessed Tyga collaboration, Foreplay and Hard Drive.

Shenseea, who has a Jamaican-Korean heritage, previously served as a promo girl before venturing into the music industry to pursue her dream.

The 26-year-old was born in Jamaica, where she studied and discovered her musical talent, which she nurtured in church as she used to sing in a choir.

Her career blossomed after giving birth to her first child, aged 19, and she would go viral with her hit song Loodi featuring Vybz Kartel.

The video garnered over a million hits on YouTube within the first week of its release.

The singer recently released her latest single, Curious, which she hoped would bridge the space between dancehall’s roots and its future.

“I wanted to bring back a nostalgic feeling with the old school Dancehall and mix it with modern sound. A lot of people who know about the culture is like ‘Yo, we haven’t heard this sound in a long time,’ and that’s exactly what we were aiming for.”

The steamy music video shows the singer in a number of attention-grabbing looks as she drips in honey and grooves alongside a team of dancers. The YouTube video has already garnered 3.5 million views since its premiere.

The news of Shenseea’s upcoming performance in Kenya has excited her fans, with some calling it a must-attend event.
