In a statement, Trace Eastern Africa C.E.O Danny Mucira said “The Trace Live Online series seeks to empower local artistes during this Covid-19 period, ensuring they continue to earn and produce more entertainment for viewers at home. This will augment the social distancing guidelines given by the government to reduce the spread of Covid-19 in the country.”
The online shows are more interactive and engaging as the fans are involved in the concert through making requests and sending shout-outs.
Artistes and musicians with big following on social media pages are set to benefit from the project as their shows will be hinged on the ‘attendance’ of those that follow them on the social media pages.
Other artistes such as Khaligraph Jones, Evelyn Wanjiru, Mercy Masika, Naiboi among others have been slotted to headline the next shows which will be streaming live via YouTube and Facelive digital spaces of the showbiz company Trace.
