The ongoing crackdown on noisy clubs by the Nairobi county government over the weekend led to the closure of two entertainment joints.The raid targets nightclubs situated in estates playing loud music that exceeds the required sound levels, inconveniencing the area residents.In a bid to beat the noise requirement,a club in Kasarani,Clarett Lounge,has resorted to silent discos.
In this,the lounge's management provides the revellers with headphones from which they listen to the music.
According to Odongo,the club's manager, the music is totally down and the only noise that is heard is that made by the happy merrymakers inside the premises.
𝐉𝐨𝐞𝐥: They do this in most clubs in Rwanda and I loved it.
𝐒𝐭𝐞𝐯𝐞: I once visited such club along Ngong road, I thought ilikuwa end year party ya Mathare Mental hospital, people were dancing to silence.
𝐒𝐞𝐭𝐡: Is the noise pollution affecting those that come to the club or those in the neighbouring environs?? I think they should give headphones to the residents of kasarani where the club is situated.
𝐑𝐚𝐣: Ever listened to someone singing with headphones? Now multiply that by hundreds..I think the residents will prefer the initial noise
