After a peerless performance by Aloe Blacc at the last installation of Blankets and Wine, the creators of BnW are flying in Estelle to headline July’s installation. Through their official social media outlets, BnW confirmed that ‘American Boy’ hit maker will be rocking Nairobi soon.
The British singer, songwriter, record producer, and actress is currently riding high on her latest album True Romance. Estelle has released several critically acclaimed records and received a Grammy Award among other accolades. She is also known for her collaborations with artists including John Legend, Robin Thicke, Rick Ross, Chris Brown, will.i.am and Kanye West. Since 2013, she has voiced the character Garnet in the animated TV series Steven Universe. Not to forget her latest appearance in Empire which morphed into a beautiful and empowerment anthem ‘ Conqueror’.
The organizers have however remained quiet on the opening acts but we expect the names to be released as events unfold. The last installation saw singer Mayonde, MDQ, EA Wave and Just A Band put up a crazy show worthy of a Nairobi welcome for Aloe Blacc.
