Hip hop artiste Juliani on Saturday headlined a concert titled Usawa Festival. The free-entry event was held at Railways Club, Nairobi.

The festival gave a podium to talented young Kenyans from different parts of Nairobi to showcase their art and skills to entertain and help eradicate gender violence and immoral activities.

Speaking during an interview, Phelister Amondi, an actress from Dagoretti, said, "We usually look at the issues affecting the youth or the community at large, showcase them in a skit and pass across the information."
