Jamaican songstress Alaine Laughton has denied being signed up to perform at the Wild Love Festival to be held next year in Lukenya Hills.

Speaking to Word Is via Twitter, the singer said: "I have not been confirmed to perform in Kenya. The rumours and press release is false." The concert, set for May, is a three-day camping and non-stop music festival focusing on sustainability of the environment and raising funds for Canini Children's Home.

Asked about this, the organiser, Henry Kioko, who had earlier confirmed through a press release, said they are still in talks with Alaine and are yet to finalise on the dates. "We have been in negotiations with Alaine's booking manager. Maybe she didn't know about the May dates next year but that is our plan anyway.

It was under discussion but we hadn't agreed on the exact date," he said. If this goes through, it will be the second time that the former banker will be performing in Kenya.

She was the main act at the annual Sepetuka dancehall concert in 2010. This was an unforgettable concert as she performed for two hours non-stop without minding the rainy weather. Alaine later shot a video For Your Eyes donning Maasai jewellery. I'm not a member of Illuminati, Susumil
