Renown gospel and secular artistes came together on Sunday 8th at memorable concert held at Carnivore ground Nairobi to help raise funds for NTV presenter Janet Kanini Ikua who was diagnosed with cancer last month.
The event saw the performance of both gospel and secular artistes including among others Sauti Sol , Daddy Owen , Nameless , Dj Mo , Solomon Mkubwa , Rufftone and Churchill Ndambuki .Also in the gathering we had a huge team from Nation Media Group who came to support one of their own.
The campaign that was held by the Nation Media Group comes just days after the world marked the World Cancer Month, dedicated to raising awareness about cancer prevention, treatment and how to manage the disease.
Mrs Ikua, who was accompanied by her husband, Mr George Ikua, said the money raised from the show should not only be used to pay her bills but to support other cancer patients, especially children who seek treatment at the Kenyatta National Hospital.
She wept as she narrated how overwhelmed she was by the support she had received, moving the crowd that had turned for the event.
On Twitter, Kenyans started a hashtag, #IStandWithJanet, which was trending for the better part of yesterday.
