Legendary Jamaican roots reggae group Wailing Souls is in Kenya to stage a concert and hold talks about the stigmatization of HIV/AIDS among adolescents and youth.
The duo – Winston “Pipe” Matthews and Lloyd “Bread” McDonald – will visit institutions relevant to HIV/AIDS cause and engage with the youth of Nairobi with the aim of educating them on current trends of infection and testing among adolescents.
The three-time Grammy nominated group will perform at the KICC grounds, Nairobi on November 5th, 2016.
“We are very privileged to be in Africa to talk to the young people of Nairobi about our cause and also stage a performance for the lovers of reggae,” they said.
The concert will also double as a free HIV testing site.
Wailing Souls added that they are big admires of Kenya’s founding father Mzee Jomo Kenyatta.
“We are here in this iconic building and we will be performing right outside of here because we have the utmost respect of Kenyatta. We don’t know why we took so long to come to Kenya but we are happy we are here now,” said Pipe.
The duo are known for hits such as Shark Attack, Fire Mus Mus Tail, Stalk a Sensimenia and Grabbing and Running.
