Makadem yesterday marked the return from his 2018 European tour in style as he performed at Ankole Grill in Nairobi’s Kilimani area. This was part of the restaurant’s weekly live showcase, Ankole Acoustic Wednesdays. The musician (also known as the Ohanglaman), sang with his Nyatiti and guitar, and was supported by Reuben Besa (base guitar) and Boaz Jagingo (percussion and backup vocals). Boaz Jagingo is an artist in his own right and one whose Ohangla-flavoured “Kanonge remix” is a great record that is reminiscent of Benga‘s goden era.

Makadem is one of Kenya’s top live performers. His performances are usually filled with high energy as this clip that samples yesterday’s gig will show. Watch belwo via Youtube.
