'Let's Get African' with CODE 96



Africa's uniqueness and culture is expressed in its arts and crafts, folklore and religion, clothing, cuisine, music and languages.
Kivuli Center, Kabiria in Kenya will this week be a hive of activity as it plays host to the CODE 96 event that is running under the the theme 'Let's Get African'.
"LET'S GET AFRICAN is a theme we chose for our event (CODE 96) in which the intention is to celebrate our culture through, music, dance, food and the dress code.
"The event is the brainchild of the L'Afrikana team and is meant to strengthen the bond and oneness between Africans through the aforementioned", said one of the organisers of the event, Rabin Lucas.

The event is also meant to not only bring people together but encourage interaction as well.
"Let's come out in our numbers and enjoy the African traditional food, music and also get to know each other while we at it.
"In knowing each other and interacting, we are bringing a continent together and showcasing the creativity and work from our fellow African brothers and sisters", said the representative.

There is quite a number of perfomers that are scheduled to take to the stage and Lucas said that it was important to find just the right balance between mainstream and emerging artists.
"We will be having a mixture of established artists as well as the upcoming ones performing on the day of the event such as BAMBA KBO, Marie Furaha, among others. "There will be more upcoming artists because the event is meant to showcase what we have and what we do and nurturing artists is one of those", he said.

The idea alone that this event will bring together audiences from all over the continent in celebration of a common cause (culture) makes it standout head-and-shoulders above the rest.
"Having people from all over Africa attending the event is one of the things that makes CODE 96's 'LET'S GET AFRICAN' a unique event. It shows the unity and togetherness that we are encouraging all over the world. As we all know, unity is core to keeping our culture intact and protecting our values", said Lucas.

The Guest of Honor is the area MP, Kj Jonh Kiarie and the man behind the idea is Mr Munga (L'Afrikana Media Department).
