Being a student is a big privilege. Well first of all completing high school is one achievement then comes campus. The privileges are many in the tourism as well as the entertainment sector. You will always find reduced prices on entrance fee at national parks and concerts for students. I have also personally avoided several arrests and being held back by security guys in my photography adventures fortunately for being a student and no I did not give a bribe.
So Safaricom announced that Roberto Fonseca (Cuba) together with Fatoumata Diawara (Mali) will be performing on the Safaricom Jazz Festival on 5th of November 2016 at the Uhuru Gardens. Also performing was the local band Shamsi Music (Kenya) who have been performing on several similar jazz festivals. The damages were ksh. 2000 (adults) and ksh. 500 (students) and surely this put a smile on my face. I vowed to never miss any concert or exhibition where the pockets of students are considered appropriately since my time as a student is also running out.
The price was totally worth it: Quality sound system from MoSound, a free transportation from the gate to the arena thanks to Apollo tours and the quality display of lights and screens that made the night very vibrant. Drinks and meals were also offered/sold and all Safaricom services were available. But I must point out that in my opinion, this was not an event you would go alone. You must have come with company or at least friends if the night was to be any fun. Well for me I had my Camera ;).
