Nigerian singer Timaya

Nigerian singer Timaya will be the headline act at the 13th edition of Barbeque live on Saturday 8th of April at the Ngong racecourse waterfront. This will be the first time for the singer, songwriter, recording artist, and performer to perform on Kenyan soil. On the line-up will be top Kenyan artists and DJs like Khaligraph and DJ Joe.

Famed for his release Bang bang, he is definitely a hit-maker as he has proven over time with songs like I like the way and Bang bang being on major rotation on various radio stations and club bangers.

We were introduced to Timaya in 2012 when he dropped Bum bum, both the song and video that beat most existing Nigerian stars garnering a whopping 11.3 Million views. His next hit Sanko closely followed in 2014 and was well received too. His latest song, Woyo has not disappointed his fans either accompanied by a colorful aesthetic video. His other songs include I like the way, Woyo, Ukwu, better than them, among others.

Barbeque Live have managed to always up their game each time with their choice of artists. Previous editions have been graced by headline acts like Tiwa Savage and Heavy K. They started out as a bi-monthly chill event that has now grown into a bigger festival like hang out.
