Hip Hop gospel artiste Juliani through his community platform – Dandora Hip Hop City has today unveiled a music summit in Dandora, Nairobi County.
The three day summit is geared towards providing a unique platform to mentor artists from various counties in the countries on how they can use music as a powerful tool for change as they explore active citizenship through arts.
According to the gospel artiste, the summit will also provide a platform for capacity building as the upcoming artistes gain necessary tools to engage their audiences on civic participation and engagement.
