This is Nairobi: Koroga Festival, March 2019

Koroga Festival is usually one of those events that are considered a must-attend if you either visit or live in Nairobi. It’s one of the lifestyle events of the city, one of the ones that have become a part of the rhythm of life in this beautiful place I love called Nairobi.

Usually.

This last edition… I won’t rehash what’s already been stated. Especially after it’s already been so well put by a delightful human I know named Whitney, as well as in the replies to her thread. All I’ll say for now? There’s plenty of room for a better show.

Still, the talent on display threw down. Phy, Fena, Asa… Each one gave a helluva performance, full of class and heart.

First off, Phy. I’ve never watched her live. (I know, I know – how is that possible?) Yet despite the fact that sound was a problem (out of her control), Phy still threw down.

Then there’s Fena. Fena has a cool and suave air to her that I can’t help but admire – even look up to.

And finally, Auntie was on stage.

Asa’s performance on that stage was… magical.

I mean… she took us on an incredible journey – she made us happy, made us laugh…

…made us get all up in our feelings…

…made us pine for more and more.

Watching her performance was witnessing beauty in motion.


Yes, you can book yourself a moment. Or for a loved one. Or for you and a loved one. Be it personal portrait, friendship portrait, couple/family portrait; or an event you have coming up – wedding, music, private family function… You get the idea. As long as there are stories to tell, I’m good at freezing those moments in time.

It’s simple: Just drop me a line on stillsbymarcus@gmail.com, and we’ll chat.
