It was all systems go as popular Kenyan comedian Eric Omondi attempted to fill the 60,000 seater Kasarani Stadium when he hosted the much anticipated Untamed 11.

The crowd at the stadium was sizeable, though not as huge as he had earlier anticipated, with his vision being to fill and possibly overflow Kenya’s biggest stadium.

The guests were entertained with a stellar cast of performers including Chipukeezy, Ezekiel Kemboi and Willy Paul among others as he transitioned from his act dubbed ‘Moi Day.’

He humoured his way from Former President Daniel Arap Moi, Mwai Kibaki, Uhuru Kenyatta and drops of former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.

He is not the first to do it big over the recent past. Gospel singer Kevin Bahati attempted to fill Thika Stadium on New Year’s Eve.

Down south, South Africa’s Cassper Nyovest made history after he filled up the FNB Stadium with 68,000 people.

Here are some of the photos from Omondi’s event.
