Jamaica's Tarrus Riley is set to perform in Kenya soon. The singer, also known as Mr Singy Singy, will be replacing fellow Jamaican singers JahCure and Duane Stephenson who were booked for the World Cry concert that was set for February 16 but has been cancelled due to venue issues. According to the organisers, Big Tune entertainment, their preferred venue, Nyayo Stadium had been double booked.
"After performing alongside Etana last year, Tarrus was quite impressed and he really wants to come back for a bigger concert and this time the entry charges will be much cheaper,"Dohty Family's DJ Kriss Darlin' told Word Is. Kriss Darlin works closely with the organisers, Big Tune.
The last time he was in Kenya, Tarrus attracted a lot of attention on his way from the airport as he mingled freely with touts and street urchins. When he got to Haile Selassie Avenue, Tarrus stopped to take a photo under the signpost of the avenue which honours the Ethiopian leader. Haile Selassie is revered as the returned messiah of the Bible, God incarnate, among the Rastafari movement.
