Samthing Soweto is set to take to the stage on November 15th for the Thrift Social event in Nairobi. The event will take place from 11 am – 8 pm at the Carnivore grounds.

Thrift Social is Africa’s biggest annual fashion market and the theme for this year is Afro Chic and Masks. The theme is obviously a nod to the ongoing global pandemic that has disrupted many people heavy gatherings and events. The thrift social is a curatorial showcase that has reshaped Kenya’s creative art and fashion scene. The event is an immersive fashion experience that strives to foster opportunities and possibilities within the Kenyan creative ecosystem.

Samthing Soweto, real name Samkelo Lelethu Mdolomba, will be the events main performer in the genre of Amapiano. Amapiano is a style of house music that emerged in South Africa in 2012. He currently has four albums This N that without Tempo (2010), Eb’Suku (2014), Val’amehlo (2017), Isphithiphithi (2019) all available on streaming platforms.

Last year’s event was headlined by Britain’s IAMDDB.

Announcing the festival, Thrift Social wrote, “Despite the obstacles we have faced this year, we somehow made it this far. We were patient and now we are ready. We want to see you pull up with your dopest fit and celebrate with us and that’s why we got a super special guest coming this November… Let’s get creative with unique mask designs that stand out. We want you to be safe and party responsibly. All Covid measures apply. No mask, no entry!”
