After last week’s post by Tarrus Riley about the cancellation of his much anticipated show that was supposed to be held at the Lugogo Cricket Oval on December 1, news reaching us confirms that the show has been rescheduled to March, next year.
According to Director of RedFog, Charles Basajja, the Just the way you are Jamaican star was requested to move the show because the key sponsors felt they needed more time to promote the event adequately.
“Our sponsors remain fully committed to making the show happen, as so is Tarrus Riley, so we are looking forward to bringing him to Kampala next March and to giving Ugandans a concert experience they will never forget,” he said.
Tarrus is celebrated for his famous global hits like She’s Royal, Gimme Likkle One Drop, Don’t Come Back, Sorry is a Sorry Word, and his latest Just the Way You Are.
Today Riley ranks among the most popular reggae artistes in Uganda, with a fan base that continues to grow by the day since the announcement by RedFog that he would be performing in the country for the first time ever. His concert is expected to be the biggest by a Jamaican act in Uganda.
Tarrus Riley wrote in a Facebook post last week that he was looking forward to performing in Uganda. “I have waited my entire career and it was like a dream come true to play in Kampala,” part of the post stated.
RedFog confirmed the concert programme will remain unchanged and the March 2018 event will still feature Ugandan reggae maestro Maddox Ssematimba, a surprise act and Uganda’s best Reggae DJs as had been planned.
“We are excited about having Tarrus in Kampala and we promise to make his dream of coming to Uganda a reality,” Mr Basajja added, confirming that RedFog’s booking agency is in touch with Riley’s team.
