sisqoAmerican singer, songwriter, dancer, producer and actor, Mark Althavean Andrews, known by his stage name Sisqó, had nothing but praise for Kenya and Nairobi.

The R&B crooner and his group Dru Hill were in the country last month for a sold out concert that fully lived to the expectation.

The singer described what it was like during his short stay in the country and was impressed by the warmth shown to him by Kenyans.

“My first visit to Nairobi was in October 2015. I actually did not know what to expect when I was coming here but I must admit that it was a pleasant surprise.

It all started at the airport where at first no one seemed to know who we were until we came out and there was a bunch of journalists waiting for us. Suddenly everyone wanted to take a photo and right there and then I knew ‘phewks’ we were going to have a good time.

To think that people knew a lot about us and that our music was still popular was very encouraging. Kenyan journalists really did their research on us.

I could not sleep because I wanted to explore everything the same day. I wanted to walk out and meet the wildlife, Maasai and get some souvenirs.

I remember when we were given food there was this certain fruit that I did not know what to do with it. So I took it to my room, posted a photo and voila there were even tutorials. It’s called a passion fruit. That said, Nairobi is very beautiful and everyone is very warm and willing to show you around. I definitely want to come back and explore more.”
