Mopepe MAMA for the Francophonie 2023

23 March 2023 - If it were on again tonight we’d go again ! It was incredible to see Syssi on stage with all her creativity and songs that touched the heart from themes of love to friendship; being parents and being children; remembering our grandparents and where we came from; being as the wind in a global society. She made us dance, think, remember our lost ones as she dazzled the audience with her soulful confident voice and dance  moves from a world class performance. We are still captivated by the memory and so glad and honored we could be there. A.K, Nairobi.
