Makadem - July 20th @ Sikrot
Makadem is a talented musician and vibrant performing artiste. His stage presence, charismatic persona and powerful vocal delivery have had him likened to the legendaryf King of Afro-Beat, Fela Kuti; and his soulful folk ballads have earned him comparisons to the leg-endary Bob Dylan. Having been very versatile, he first emerged as a dance hall artiste,a rapper and a singer going by the title Mr. Lololova and produced by a mombasa based musician and producer,Nabeel Sansool between 1997 and 2000. He quickly settled for what he loved the most,contemporary African music having shifted his base to Ketebul music in Nairobi under the production of Tabu Osusa in 2005. This earned him his first world class album the one and only Ohangla-man and his debut concerts in international festivals starting with Fest Horn in Djibouti in 2007, followed by Sauti Za Busara ,Zanzibar Tanza-nia, twice in 2007 and 2010.
