The Kisumu National Polytechnic played host to NTV’s popular Sunday morning gospel program Crossover 101 that runs on the TV broadcaster every week for fans of urban Christian music.
The three-hour show that runs from 10 am to 1 pm roused the usually quiet Sunday mornings at TKNP as enthusiasts joined into the mini-concert that the Crossover crew held at the basketball courts. Notable artistes in attendance included co-hosts DJ Mo and Grace Ekirapa, performers such as Paul Otieno, the TKNP Christian Union choir, MC Price, DJ Ray, No Joke dancers and The Peller Hypeman. Also present to preach a brief sermon was Bishop Daniel Aoyi who focused his message on Jesus’ teaching imploring his disciples to become ‘Fishers of men’.
Fans thronged the scene and danced along to the thumping tunes of urban gospel music as the musicians and their supporting cast kept everyone on their feet. The show hosts were overwhelmed by the positive response to the mini-concert, “Kisumu has great energy, I have never experienced so much energy from an audience wherever I have performed in Kenya,” said DJ Ray, who backs DJ Mo on the musical decks.
The occasion coincidentally coming in the early days of the new academic year became one more warm welcome for new students who have just joined TKNP and who are learning more about the dynamism of the institution and what it has to offer.
