Jamaican-American reggae vocalist Tarrus Riley has been affirmed as a visitor entertainer at the fabulous finale of the Swangz All Star Tour slated for August 31 at Lugogo Cricket oval.
The reggae star will perform nearby the best of Uganda’s music ability. The finale will twist up a three-month Ugandan music festivity named ‘Chime Jamz presents The Swangz All Star Tour.’
The Swangz All Star Tour commenced in May and commends a time of music for generation house, Swangz Avenue. The visit is sorted out in association with Bell Jamz, a stage that backings neighborhood music.
Riley, born in the Bronx, New York and raised in Jamaica, made his recording debut as a teenager. Since then, he has churned out a number of hits scaling several charts with a number of collaborations with artistes like Konshens, Vybz Kartel, Demarco, Major Lazer and Ellie Goulding. This will be his first performance in Uganda.
Benon Mugumbya, the founder of Swangz Avenue, says: “This show, unlike others, will be different. Tarrus is not the main act but, rather, a guest performer who will perform alongside our Ugandan artistes. As opposed to previous shows where Ugandan artistes have curtain raised for international acts, our Ugandan artistes will share a stage with award-winning Tarrus Riley. We are very excited because this has not been done before.”
