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.”2018-fenty-beauty-ma(21)-gthumb-gwdata1200-ghdata1200-gfitdatamax
