International recording superstar Vegas arrived in Zimbabwe earlier this week, marking his third such trip to the African continent in the last couple of years.
“I always love performing in Africa, the last time I performed in Kenya, there were between 70,000 to 80,000 people in the stadium. I have also performed in Uganda in the past…Africa ah my place,” he said.
He will be the headline act for a huge concert in the capital city of Zimbabwethis weekend.
In the meantime, the singjay’s Certain Law video debuted at #1 on MTV Base Africa chart this week. Millions of viewers watch the MTV station in countries like Kenya, South Africa andZimbabwe.
“I am proud that this happened because this is the first time that a dancehall artiste is doing it and it is also a first for me as an artiste. The response to the video has been phenomenal so far, people love the acting, and the comedic elements to the concepts of how males are acting different nowadays and adopting female characteristics in terms of their fashion choices. The actor Orville Hall did a good job bringing across the concept, and Terminal 4 Media did a great job directing it,” he said.
The thought-provoking single “Certain Law” on the recently releasedBarbwire Riddim has been getting a lot of airplay and spins at the street dances all over Jamaica.
Mr. Vegas completed a successful Euroepan tour earlier this year where he performed in countries such as Sweden, Portugal, Italy, Belgium, Poland, Finland, Spain and Switzerland. He was also the main headline act at theArthur’s Day Live concert held on the GNS Grounds in Georgetown, Guyanain September.
