23rd March 2021(Nairobi, Kenya) – Following the rising numbers of Covid-19 the organisers of the Made In Kenya Concert have postponed the concert to 5th June 2021.
As you may well be aware, the government has called on the public to stop gathering to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, and after deliberations with artistes, sponsors and partners it wouldn’t be responsible for us to go ahead with the event at this time.
This is not a decision we have taken lightly and there are two overriding concerns that have caused us to make this decision at this time.
Firstly it is the uncertainty caused by the fact that the Covid-19 numbers in recent weeks have massively risen and we care so much about the well being of every person involved and that includes our fans. We have met with the various stakeholders involved and we feel it’s not proper to risk the lives of Kenyans and therefore have to reschedule the event to June 5th 2021.
Secondly, our primary concern is always the responsibility we feel towards our fans, artistes and partners, who fund the show – not only by purchasing stand space but also in the considerable additional investment they make.
We will keep you posted if anything changes, and please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or concerns.
You can find out more about COVID-19 on the WHO,MOH(Ministry of Health) websites.
Stay safe, and we’ll be in touch with more information soon.
