The socially conscious singer arrived on Wednesday night in the 254 and held a press briefing on Thursday morning at the DusItD2 Hotel. He is set to perform on the Mashujaa day (Heroes Day) concert, October 20th holiday weekend, slated to perform at the KICC backed by the Black Soil band spearheaded by the legendary Jamaican Saxophonist Dean Fraser, alongside rising sensation, Koriq. Other acts confirmed this week include the legendary Reggae maestro, Everton Blender and Kenya’s homegrown reggae band, Gravitti.
After a thrilling debut performance in Uganda in August 2018, and where he recorded the single ‘Uganda’ after falling in love with ‘The Pearl Of Africa’ nation as well, the highly acclaimed reggae singer, Tarrus “singy-singy” Riley returns to Nairobi this month of October as the headline act for the Homeboyz Group organised concert.
Since the success of his 2006 album, ‘Parables’ produced by Dean Fraser, Tarrus has been redefining the sounds of contemporary reggae music. And now, after a five-year wait, singer Tarrus Riley is ready to release his next compilation, according to an article published on the Jamaica Gleaner. His last album was Love Situations in 2014. The new album, which has yet to be titled, is slated for release early next year.
Riley’s concert comes barely a week after Major Lazer performance in Nairobi and Diani as part of their African tour that started in South Africa before an appearance at the Lake of Stars Festival in Malawi. With stops in Lagos, their tour ended with a show in Kampala.
Since his debut in 2005 Riley has released six studio albums and become one of the premier reggae artists of his generation. For all that, Tarrus Riley comes highly recommended. 254 turn up!
