Last Sunday Safaricom Jazz celebrated 5 years since inception in 2014. The Jazz concerts which are a brainchild of Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore have continued to attract bigger crowds over the years, different jazz artists from all over the world, and to expose local acts from within Kenya. Other than being entertaining, Safaricom Jazz has continued to uplift the lives of the kids at Ghetto Classics, the project towards which all proceeds from the concerts go.

Here, in pictures is how things went down on Sunday at Kasarani.
