The long awaited, exciting and packed event, the 12th edition of Barbecue live is set for 12th November this year. That means we only have 5 days left on the countdown.
The Waterfront, Ngong’ racecourse is where all the action will be going down.
If you’ve attended the previous BBQ Live events then you know how it goes down; so better get your squad ready ’cause the turn up is going to be lit! The run up to the party was held at the United States International university, a calculated bid to rake up youthful presence at the event.
Brought to you by Famous Grouse, lined up performances include the the beautiful Tiwa Savage, Heavy K and our very own Khaligraph Jones.
Here is a sneak peek about the journey of these artistes in the music industry.
