Jamaican star Tarrus Riley relishes Zim visit

HARARE - Reggae-dancehall superstar Tarrus Riley, who will perform at the Harare International Conference Centre (HICC) tomorrow, says he will savour his maiden tour of Zimbabwe for a long time.

The She’s Royal singer, who has been accompanied on the Zimbabwe tour by celebrated Jamaican saxophonist Dean Fraser and the Blak Soil band, will share the stage with local artistes who include Jah Prayzah, Soul Jah Love, Seh Calaz, Killer T, Gary Tight and Godfather Templeman.

“This is my second time to come to the motherland. First it was Kenya and now it’s Zimbabwe. Coming to Africa is a great experience; I will probably do a song on it,” said Riley.

The Jamaican is determined to deliver a show worth the long wait.

“The people have been waiting for a long time and I have been waiting for a long time too. We will surely have a great time,” said the Sorry Is A Sorry Word hit-maker.

There are, however, fears that fans of the celebrated star could be forced to miss the gig due to high ticket prices. The lowest ticket —the advance one — has been pegged at a pricey $20.

If one chooses to buy the ticket on the day of the concert, he will have to pay $30 for a standard ticket, $50 for a VIP ticket and a whopping $100 for the VVIP one.
