Upcoming musicians Ethan Muziki and Kinoti had to cancel their free show at the Sarit Center after it overflowed with fans.
Neither Kinoti nor Ethan were prepared for the size of the audience they attracted. The gathering grew so large that the administration at Sarit Center was forced to end the event immediately while it was still in progress.
Ethan claims that while hundreds of excited fans kept flooding the stadium, things quickly changed when the management entered and stopped the concert from happening.
"Our venue today was so packed that the show had to be cut short - what a mixture of emotions. Thank you so much for showing up in the wildest of numbers to share your Sunday evening with us!" he shared on X.

Our venue today was so packed that the show had to be cut short - what a mixture of emotions. Thank you so much for showing up in the wildest of numbers to share your Sunday evening with us ❤️ I'm extremely gutted and yet, truly, if I ever needed a sign... today was it!

Videos posted by both performers depict a vast crowd that extends back, with fans crammed close together.
"Can't begin to explain how beautiful today was (love emoji) nawapenda sana," wrote Kinoti alongside a video of what appeared to be an endless queue of followers singing along to one of his songs. It defies description! I appreciate the affection so much; thank you! The KinDom will always exist.
Many were shocked by the sizeable crowd the two singers attracted and their ease in promoting the event.
Many commentators applauded the singers for their lack of drama and preference for making beautiful music rather than engaging in the internet antics that many Kenyan musicians engage in to gain attention or an audience.
