President Ruto Wants Grammy Awards To Be Hosted In Kenya’s Iconic Maasai Mara Wildlife Conservation


The President of Kenya, William Ruto, has proposed hosting the annual Grammy Awards in Kenya.


Specifically, Mr. Ruto wants the Awards to be hosted in Maasai Mara, a wildlife conservation in southwestern Kenya.


He made the proposal during his recent visit to Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta, Georgia on the margins of his State visit to the United States of America. During his tour of the studios, Mr. Ruto engaged in discussions with various key figures in the American entertainment industry. One highlight of the visit was securing a commitment from American television personality Steve Harvey to visit Kenya in September this year and interact with the local industry.



Maasai Mara is one of the wildlife conservation and wilderness areas in Kenya, with its populations of lion, leopard, cheetah and African bush elephant. It also hosts the Great Migration, which secured it as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa, and as one of the ten Wonders of the World. The Greater Mara ecosystem encompasses areas known as the Maasai Mara National Reserve, the Mara Triangle, several Maasai group ranches, and several conservancies.


Intrigued by Mr. Ruto’s proposal, organizers of the Grammy Awards promised to visit Kenya in July this year to discuss the proposal further and explore its feasibility.


The Grammy Awards are awards presented by the Recording Academy of the United States to recognize outstanding achievements in the music industry. They are regarded by many as the most prestigious and significant awards in the music industry.
