Strictly Silk Second Edition: Thank You!


We’re so incredibly grateful to everyone who came through for Strictly Silk and all the amazing ways you contributed to it being such a brilliant night! Thank you to everyone who supported the event even before it happened by spreading the word and sharing the love you had for the first edition. You kept us excited and motivated to bring you an evening worth remembering.


Thank you for buying a ticket, for telling a friend, for bringing your birthday and graduation celebrations to us, thank you for choosing us, again, and making the space one of joy and community.

It was an amazing night. We have many memories to share and a few special shout-outs:

Strictly Silk is a dance party, and we were kept on our feet all night, getting down to the mixes from our lineup of phenomenal DJs: DJ Kelly, DJ Miss Ray, Ziggie and CoCo Em! Thank you to the DJs for working hard so we could party hard. Thank you to Xeniah Manasseh and guitarist Ivy Alexander for bringing the groove with Strictly Silk’s first live performance.

We are grateful to our vendors who all came through with something to make the night even more special: Fresh and More (venue, catering and bar), Nduta of WLD Nailz (henna body art), Sinnita of Ne’bya Beauty (makeup), Naddya of Sunflower Pictures (live illustrations), Lindsay of ah_this (body painting), Gspot Kenya, (pleasure merchants and advocates) and Essy Mosa (contemporary fashion).

Thank you to Timeless Occasions for the lovely decor, PSAudio Visual for our LED screen Calamari Heaters for the gas warmers and Jay’s pyrotechnics for lighting up our night with confetti and sparks and a special shout out to Wendy our wonderful sound engineer.

Heartfelt thanks to ZUMI our media partner for their photo booth and to Uber for the discount code. Many thanks to Mookh, our ticketing partner and their able agents Hazel and Tina, and to our all-woman security force of armed guards, APs and bouncers.

We are grateful to JuneJuly and Joy, our photographers and Bo, our videographer for capturing the marvelous moments of the night.

Special shout out to the Men of the Nest for all the support they always show us.

Our warmest thanks to Joan for bringing a cake for everyone and keeping our little tradition alive. Finally, thank you to every single person who came through, thank you for coming with open hearts and dancing shoes, and being the best, kindest, most joyous crowd we could ever imagine. You are all magic!

We can’t wait to see you all again later this year at our 3rd Edition!!!!
