That day we drove to Nanyuki with my husband and my manager and when we got there he had book us in a hotel, I checked in and went for sound check, but I realized the promoter had not put up the dome and a lot of things were not ready, so I called Naiboi who was also suppose to perform and he said he had not been paid the deposit so he is not coming until he is paid.
