Singer Keri Hilson is currently in Kenya for the Terminal Music Weekend set to go down from Friday August 5 to 6th at the KICC. The singer, who is expected to perform alongside 5 other international acts, including Big Shaq, is also in Kenya for charity.
In an interview with SDE, Hilson shared how her stay in Kenya has been so far.
“This (Tuesday) is my first day. we landed late at night so I woke up to what looks like I don’t know jungle like very beautiful wooded area I guess we drove all the way here to Kenya High School from our hotel so all I know is that it’s really beautiful and that the stuff that is being sold on the side of the road is really beautiful and the kids, their energy and their spirit. It really almost brought me to tears,” she said in the interview.
On Instagram, she posted that she spent the better part of Thursday interacting with girls from Kibera Creative Arts where she participated in bead making.
“Day 1 in Kenya was AWESOME!!! I inspired 1,000 girls, made bracelets with @kiberacreativearts that provides a living & opportunity for the underdeveloped community, learned the Kenyan Odi dance (& some Swahili), & received welcome gifts from young locals,” she said.
