Multi-Grammy award-winning American singer, songwriter, and record producer, Anthony Hamilton is finally in Kenya.
The soul and neo-soul superstar is expected to perform at the Stanbic Yetu festival scheduled to take place this coming Saturday at the Carnivore grounds.
Hamilton sat down with Mpasho's Hannie Petra and couldn't help but talk about his love for Kenya, the people, food, and its rich culture.
He said that apart from his planned mega performance, he wants to ensure that he has soaked everything in to ensure he has made good use of his time here.
The last time he was in Kenya was a couple of years back when he was treated to a game drive, a memory that he says will forever be entrenched in his heart.
"I am planning on taking in the culture and the food and just taking it all in and feeling what it feels like being here. What home feels like to you guys I wanna feel that," Hamilton said.
Soon as he landed on Tuesday, he was treated to a sumptuous Chicken pilau, a meal he says he enjoyed and would have again even for breakfast. Petra challenged him to try out some mukimo delicacy and he was very much open to it.
Hamilton is a huge foodie and he revealed that cooking is his hidden talent and it's something apart from music that sets his soul on fire.
He said, "I love cooking I love food and I am a pretty good cook I actually have my own grits I have my own cornbread, hot sauce, and grape juice that's organic. So food is very important to me like making sure my people get food and make sure I eat food that is healthy."
Speaking while appearing for an interview on Classic 105 ahead of his Stanbic Yetu Festival Hamilton says his fans should start dusting their dancing shoes.
"I will give my all, I did not come all this way to pretend, I will give the fans more than they can imagine."
Charles Mudiwa, Stanbic Bank CEO says the Stanbic Yetu Festival is something tailor-made to give people hope.
"We started working with Radio Africa group in 2020 when everyone was going through difficulties.We wanted something to give people hope.
When things got better and Covid stopped we decided to go physical instead of digital.'
