TESTIMONIALS

Client Feedbacks

Kanzi Fest was  a great benefit to my business in two ways.  First, it provided me networking opportunities with some great businesses.  Lastly, I was able to experience an afrocentric atmosphere that was empowering and uplifting.  I look forward to this year’s event.

I appreciate what KGEDC is doing by supporting artists like myself through Kanzi Fest.  It gives us an outlet through which we can share our talents.  I look forward to performing at Kanzi Fest 2020.
