It truly has been a long and busy weekend and we must say welcome back. A lot of events took place and among them was the Magic Washington Legacy show that was aimed at celebrating and marking 20 years of producer Washington in the music industry.
Starting way back in 1997 with Bobi Wine’s ‘Akagoma’ being his first hit song in the early 2000’s, Washington marked the 20 years in style at the function he hosted at the Acacia Avenue based Casablanca Pub on Monday the 17th of April (Easter Monday). With Kenya’s Nameless being the event’s main headliner, he took to stage amid lots of ululations from fans who had all along been waiting for him despite the fact there was a serious drizzle.
The drizzle changed nothing as Nameless went ahead to perform in it with the support and cheers from the revellers especially the ladies as he performed songs like ‘Butterfly’, ‘Sinzia’, ‘Sunshine’ among others. Immediately after his performance, Washington alongside his friends took the stage where they cut a cake in commemoration of the 20 years as he sang one of his tunes dubbed ‘Kyewu’.
Before this, Radio and Weasel and Cindy had just excited the crowd with their performances
On the other hand, the event was in a away kind of a Reggae one specially basing on the fact that Washington is a Rastafarian and plus Reggae music was the genre played most. The attendees who stood the drizzle thrice were kept entertained with live Dj mixes from Dj Faisal and other performances from Systems Band who warmed up the attendees with a live session of Congolese music, Happy Kitanda, Rich 2 Trumpeter, Bruno K, Natty Dread, Nina Roz, City Rock Entertainment, Sam Okello before Washington produced a collabo song between Okello and Radio and Weasel live on stage.
Performances later resumed with Miss Erica (Burundi), Milly (Rwanda) and finally Washington himself. It must remembered that the Magic Washington Legacy show is going to be an annual and the first edition went down successfully.
