Word on the street is that 9 time grammy award winner singer,actress and business woman Rihanna might be headed to kenya for a concert this year this ais according to Mike Strano who is the Founding Director of PHAT! Productions.
Mike shared a letter from the management of Rihanna stating that they are searching for a credible promoter who can take up the East African leg of the tour, specifically in Ken
It read: “Rihanna is going on tour this fall. We are looking at September 1-October 31.”
Mike said, “Yes, I believe Rihanna will get at least 2-3 shows in Africa, probably Johannesburg and Cape Town, as traditional markets for such A-listers. Then maybe Lagos.”
“Since we put the word out this morning, we’ve had an inquiry from Kenya and Tanzania. We expect one from Uganda, as they’ve also hosted A-listers before.” when he was asked how easy it will be for Kenyan promoter to take this up financially and technically, Mike said, “In every market, this would need to be a heavy sponsor-driven concert.”
Now its Promoters who have their work cut out for them to satisfy Rihanna’s demands hopefully
Rihanna will be travelling with a party of 60 people. They will need local transportation to and from the hotel during the tour.
For accommodation, they will need 20 single rooms in a five star and above, 10 single rooms and 15 double rooms in a four star.
Their catering demands are addressed in the “Hospitality Riders”.
We are yet to find out if any Kenyan promoter has been selected to be part of the tour.
