Music lovers disappointed by the cancellation of Ycee’s show will be in for a treat as the city awaits another mega Trappish gig. With the help of the Rwanda Convention Bureau (RCB), Trappish Ent is organizing another big show scheduled for July 16 at Canal Olympia, Rebero. This is after their previous gig was cancelled, a decision Kigali City says was caused by the inability to moderate the sound in a residential area.
Trappish music founder Ish Kevin confirmed the development to Weekender on Wednesday morning, noting that he will be performing alongside different young musicians touring the Rwandan music industry.
He said the decision to hold another event was initiated by RCB who saw the losses Trappish made in the previous canceled show, and decided to help them hold a better event at a bigger venue that could accommodate a large number of revelers.
“It’s confirmed, we are ready to host another big show in town where only the young boys and girls of the Rwandan music industry will perform,” said Ish Kevin, adding, “It will be a day of trapping and fashion. Various fashion activities will also take place.
The event will also feature Bianca Fashion Hub. Besides musical performances, different fashion collections will be presented during the event. The trappish show last took place on October 30 last year at Canal Olympia, Rebero and delighted thousands of music lovers who had gathered to experience live performances from various upcoming artists.
The concert will feature artists such as Mike Kayihura, Kivumbi King, Logan Joe, Confy, Kenny K Shot, among others. Trappish music is a movement made up only of young boys who are making new waves such as drill, kinyatrap, afro trap among other popular genres in Rwanda. It was founded by Kevin Semana, better known as Ish Kevin in his early days in music when the drill genre was growing in Rwanda.
