Jamaican star Kalado confirms Zim show

HARARE - Jamaican dancehall star Kalado has confirmed his first ever Zimbabwean show that will take place at Old Hararians Sports Club in Harare on September 13.

In a video released by the show organisers, Digital One International, Kalado promises local dancehall fans a night to remember.

“Hello! Saturday the 13th of September at Old Hararians Sports Club, Digital One International and me Kalado live in Zimbabwe for the first time,” says the Jamaican artiste in the promotional video.

Kalado’s highly anticipated tour of Zimbabwe is confirmation of how dancehall has become one of the most loved music genres.

A string of top-notch Jamaican entertainers who include Mavado and Popcaan have performed in Zimbabwe in recent years.

The concert organisers have roped in a number of leading Zimbabwean dancehall who include the Mbare trio of Soul Jah Love, Seh Calaz and Killer T to be opening acts at the Make Me Feel singer’s debut performance in Zimbabwe.

Kalado, born Eton Gordon in 1984 in Kingston, has been one of the rising dancehall stars on the Jamaican and Global dancehall scenes in recent years since catching the eye of producer Scatta Burrell during the 2008 edition of the Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall television show.

The young Kalado soon caught the attention of dancehall legend Bounty Killer who invited him three years ago to become a member of Alliance Next Generation (ANG)-his select group of rising dancehall artistes.

Kalado’s fortunes on the dancehall scene have flourished under the wings of Bounty Killer.

His  increasing repertoire includes hits like Good Good, Body Nuh Dead, Make Me Feel, Sad Streets, Pree Money, Pay Dem No Mind, Bad Inna Bed and Take A Ride.

At the moment, Kalado is receiving a lot of airplay in Jamaica and other countries with his rendition of P-Square’s Personally.

The hit has become a favourite of many women throughout the world.
