African Pop artiste Suzanna Owiyo has had to adjust to a new kind of lifestyle due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Owiyo who is set to perform at the biggest virtual concert ever on August 29, 2020, titled Kenya Ni Yetu Live, alongside other music icons said,

‘The pandemic has made me reflect a lot on the purpose of life. Life can drastically change. I have realized we are not in control of our destinies.”

She added,

‘Its high time we recognize the value in people around us. Every creature on earth is worthy of our respect and care. We can only succeed through cooperation.

Crisis of this magnitude requires cooperation on all fronts.’

She was also quick to commend health workers for the good work they are doing despite the fact that they are risking their lives.

‘The work of health care workers is commendable. Not forgetting intiatives and charities in place supporting most vulnerable people in different communities . Huge thank you to their sacrifice.’

Kenya needs voices of hope now more than ever as the country is battling the COVID-19 pandemic.

That is why Kenya Ni Yetu Live sponsored by Stanbic Bank has stepped up to the plate to produce a virtual music concert to celebrate the spirit of Kenya. One the Kenya Ni Yetu Live stage, 30 artistes will entertain Kenyans watching from the comfort of their living rooms.

Kenya Ni Yetu Live will air on all the major TV outlets like Kiss TV, Citizen TV, KTN, NTV and K24.

For those who are always online, they can also catch it on

Speaking about working with big names like Sauti Sol, Sir Elvis, H_art The Band, Sammidoh, Eric Wainaina among others for the virtual concert, Suzanna noted,

‘The future of Live music is bright! Even in the middle of the crisis, Music has not died.

It’s a matter of accepting the change and coming up with different innovative ways to keep it ALIVE!’
