Award-winning Jamaican reggae star Tarrus Riley is in Kenya for his much-anticipated performance in Naivasha this weekend.

Tarrus landed in the country yesterday promising Kenyans a great time at the Koroga Festival where he is set to perform at.

"Kenya remains dear to my heart and career. My first visit to Africa was to Kenya and from then till now I’ve grown such love for the people of Kenya and I thank the organizers for deeming me fit to be the first non-African act to headline this festival," he said.

This year's Koroga will take place at The Gardens on Moi South Lake Road in Naivasha, Nakuru county.

The festival titled the ‘The WRC Koroga Festival’, will be the first-ever recreational village, where rally fans can be engaged, fed and entertained for four days during the WRC Safari Rally Kenya.

Koroga Festival is making a comeback after a two-year hiatus due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic coinciding with the 2022 World Rally Championship (WRC).

Last year, President Uhuru Kenyatta announced that Kenya would host the WRC Safari Rally every year until 2026.

The event organiser said the WRC Koroga Festival will bring the best talent from across the continent.

"We will bring together the best Kenyan DJs and the best artistes and create an opportunity to enjoy the Safari Rally on a totally different level."

Other stars set to perform at Koroga Festival include Mugithi singer Samidoh, Burukylyn Boyz, Otile Brown, Nviiri the Storyteller, Kamanu and Gravitti Band, plus a set of top Kenyan DJs.

Nviiri The Story Teller will be the performing act on stage alongside Tarrus Riley.
