Nonini to miss Canada gig after positive Covid-19 test

Singer Hubert Nakitare, commonly known as Nonini in entertainment circles, has tested positive for Covid-19.

The rapper shared the news with his fans and explained it was the reason he will not be able to perform at a concert in Canada.

The Tanga hitmaker said he has been feeling under the weather for some time but did not think much of it.

“This week I haven’t been posting as usual. Unfortunately, I have been feeling a little bit under the weather. I was so looking forward to coming to Vancouver for the first time ever, unfortunately, I have tested positive for COVID-19 and can’t travel,” Nonini said.

He however assured his fans that he will be better soon since he has already been fully vaccinated.

“I want to apologize to my people who will be coming through this weekend for #Rugby7vens and all the best to our Team. I shall get better soon. Sabu I’m fully vaxed but Sherehe iendelee kama Kawa! Big shout out to @kusholekush alongside DJs Bazenga and DJ Drac Sebo,” he said.

Nonini recently relocated to the USA with his family and has been reinventing himself through his music and other ventures.

Last year he launched his fashion brand titled “Mgenge2Ru”.

In a past interview, the rapper said fashion has always been one of his passions, dating way back to his days at Calif Record.

His collection includes bomber jackets, hoodies and shoes. The apparel is meant to appeal to children and adults of both sexes.

A pair of his branded sneakers range from Sh22,000 to Sh27,000, and are only made on order.

The shoes, he said, are made in Italy while the clothesline is manufactured in Kenya.

His music career has also been thriving. He recently released a song titled Tanga, a collaboration with Tanzanian singer Chege Chigunda.

According to Nonini, music is a universal language and that is why he is able to make music while living in a foreign country.

The song will be part of his sixth studio album set to be released later this year. The album he says will be a celebration of his musical career that has spanned almost two decades.
