Kenyan musician Charles Njagua Kanyi – popularly known by his stage name ‘Jaguar’ – was scheduled to perform in Atlanta on Friday but did not show up until the wee hours of Saturday morning, leaving most of his fans disappointed.

The artiste, whose show was supposed to start at 10pm, took to the stage at 2.36am just as most of the revellers were preparing to leave the AR Lounge hall on Franklin Road, in Marietta, Georgia.

He performed for 26 minutes before exiting the stage.

Irate fans expressed their displeasure with the event organisers for failing to keep time as advertised.

“Let someone tell these Kenyan artistes that the ball game here is different.

“I really don’t care how they do it elsewhere but here we keep time and don’t take others for granted,” said Joane Wambui, who left the hall an hour before the musician came.

“I have to work in the morning. I had planned my day hoping to watch Jaguar by midnight but now I’m so disappointed,” she told the Nation at the venue.

The artiste was nevertheless given a rousing reception by some of those present, some of whom defied the security detail and mobbed him with excitement.

“We commend the DJs for playing good music as we waited,” said Joseph Okoth who attended the show with his fiancé.
