The Soul Makossa hit maker was backed by his Soul Makossa gang that attrtacted all sorts different people. Other performers included The Different Faces Band, Karen ‘Kaz’ Lucas, June Gachui and Maurice Kirya. Each act put up a good show that made up for the dull weather. Here are some pictures from the event;

This was my first Koroga Festival and despite the delay and a few technical hitches it was a good show. Looking forward to the next one.
