African Grandeur at Kisumu’s “Black Panther” Movie Premiere

Wakanda Forever!


Tuesday, February 13, 2018 will go down memory lane as the first time ever an international Hollywood movie premiere happened in Kenya, in the lakeside City of Kisumu.

Despite the wide expectation that the main star, that the locals were anticipating to interact with did not come to the African premiere, this, however did not dampen the spirits of the fans and film lovers from not coming through to watch this movie premiere all glammed up in their African Attire, which the movie was itself premised. African culture, lifestyle, greatness and leadership abilities.

The auditoriums were filled to capacity, thus necessitating another screening at 9pm.

The event organizers took keen attention to detail, even bringing on board traditional African dancers as part of the celebration. Everyone received a VIP treatment.

The Kiusmu residents and Black Panther fans from around the world did not disappoint, all dressed up in African colors.

African print clothing carried the day, and every one looked fabulous and stylish. The African way to celebrate their MCU star.

Liquid Telecom Kenya deployed a 400Mbps connection across Kisumu City in just 24 hours to the movie premiere in order to livestream the red carpet arrivals of the Black Panther fans.

In order to connect the IMAX cinema at Nakumatt Mega City, Liquid Telecom Kenya leveraged its 12.4km metro network; that it built in partnership with Kisumu County Government with the goal of transforming the metropolis into a Smart City.

Liquid Telecom fibre network covers Kisumu CBD and spans through Milimani and Kondele up to Kibos, Kicomi and Migosi Junction.

After all was said and done, photos taken, booze flowed, parties, the movie was great and lived up to the hype it generated. The African hype in Kisumu was even greatest.

To the next, Lupita!
