Kenyans received the concert positively and took to social media to express their views and feedback during the live concert.

Suzanna Owiyo thanked her fans for tuning in and supporting not only her but the other artistes as well.

"Thank you for watching the show. Yetu Live was amazing and the lineup had great artistes. And I also want to thank you for the support always. I do not take it for granted because we have come a long way," she said.

The artist also pointed out that she has been asked what exactly she does to look young because her fans keep complimenting how she's aging gracefully.

"One thing that came out strongly from the comments was Suzanna you don't age. I have been hearing almost every other day. I'm happy and I would like to acknowledge and thank you for that compliment," she added.

"The secret is all in the mind, I would like to believe that. What I have tried to do is try and live with positive energy even when I'm in the house or walk out, I just want to attract that positive energy in everything I touch or do."

Don't be so much concerned about your age. Take it a day at a time. That should not bother you. Age is just a number," she advised.
