IT was an unlucky night for the flamboyant Nairobi County Senator, Mike Sonko, following the loss of his ring said to be worth Sh100,000 during the Diamond show in Nairobi last Friday.
Sonko, who made a grand entry to the KICC accompanied by singer Jaguar, his family and politician Stanley Livondo, at around midnight, attracted hundreds of young fans who mobbed and posed for photos with him.
After about one hour of his ‘meet and greet’, the senator, puffing an electronic cigarette, was taken to the VIP tent, which by that time was fully packed. Half-an-hour later, he noticed that one of his rings was missing.
Efforts by himself, Jaguar and his bodyguards to search for the ring under the seats and the surrounding areas proved futile.
The scene, however, was overshadowed by Diamond’s show, who at some point stormed off the stage in protest over sound failure. It took the efforts of organisers to persuade him to resume his performance.
After performing some of his hit songs including Nataka Kulewa, Kesho, Mbagala, Chada Chema, Natamani and Nitarejea, Diamond left the stage in a huff and went straight to the waiting limousine which immediately zoomed off.
