Do you fancy big-name turnout at your event? Well, Kenya’s biggest name in the entertainment industry just pulled that on Saturday at the official launch of Octopizzo’s much-hyped second album dubbed Long Distance Paper Chasers (LPDC).
The country’s hip-hop finest, had dignitaries cheering on him as he performed to the weather-defiant crowd that included US ambassador Robert Godec.
Octopizzo, who never shies away from publicly acknowledging his humble upbringing in Africa’s biggest slum, Kibera, once again proved skeptics wrong with the huge crowds that braved the chilly weather and showed up at the KICC in hundreds, a testament of the fanatical following he has.
The inspirational rapper had Mr. Godec dancing on with the rest of the crowd throughout his performance. The diplomat had earlier on taken to twitter to express his excitement over the refugee artists who were part of Octopizzo’s entourage since the rapper has been instrumental in the nurturing of their talents.
