Gen Z is Drinking Less Alcohol According to Survey

In 2019, Kenya was at the peak of sherehe (partying), with anthems like Party After Party being blasted in nightclubs every weekend, while December was riddled with all types of concerts and festivities being held all over the country.


Then the pandemic came and clubs, events and restaurants were closed and people could no longer gather for sherehe or go drinking.
