Gospel musician Julius Owino (aka Juliani) has launched Juliani Hela to help fans get access to his events, buy albums, t-shirts and other Juliani accessories as well as attend his slated album launch later this week.
Juliani Hela is a loyalty point-based currency earned by customers on every purchase of an event ticket, a t-shirt, or an album. One can also buy Juliani Hela directly then redeem them at select stores for goods. In future, Juliani aims to work with a number of stores to accept Juliani Hela just like Safaricom’s Bonga Points are accepted at partner retailers such as Kenya Airways among others.
“You need Juliani Hela – JHela – to make purchases on juliani.co.ke. Think of Juliani Hela as a currency that can only be used here. One Juliani Hela is valued at Kshs 100, you can buy them at highly subsidized early bird fan pack rates,” he said.
To buy Hela, you have to sign up on juliani.co.ke then sign up for an account. Then get the number of Juliani Hela you want then use JHela to redeem for your tickets to the shows. As a loyalty coin, Juliani Hela is not based on any cryptocurrency but is just a database of his loyal fans who want in on his most epic music journey and album launch.
After kicking off on Wednesday April 18 and running till April 21, 2018 at The Elephant 3, Kanjata Road, Off James Gichuru Rd, tickets to the Juliani Album launch are retailing at Kshs 2000 at the gate and Kshs 1500 for Juliani Hela customers.
During the Juliani album launch, revellers will enjoy the relaunch of Mtaa Mentality, Juliani’s debut album, which introduced him to the masses as Kenya’s foremost lyricist in 2008, while JHela customers will save up more than Kshs 500 on their tickets and purchases of other accessories.
On the second day of the event, April 19, revellers will join the singer during his Pulpit Kwa Street relaunch. This is Juliani’s second album and was released in 2011. His message was one of religious, social and political emancipation for Kenyans.
This show is targeting poets and musicians and everyone who has ever yearned for a live performance of Pulpit Kwa Street.
On the third day, April 20, revellers will witness the relaunch of Exponential Potential which was about him becoming who one is destined to be, allowing himself to go through the process and prepare to fully experience the opportunities ahead.
The last day, April 21, will be the Masterpiece Listening Party. The Masterpiece, launching on April 21, 2018 is both an appreciation of the past and a look into the future. Juliani reminds us about what it means to be deeply human. He is more mature, not just a rapper but a full on artist. Better lyrics, more feelings, more probing questions.
The last day will end with an exclusive Masterpiece album unveiling and listening party, followed by a rocking performance by the lyricist himself.
