Reggae artists from the Caribbean have been finding they have a lot of love waiting for them in Africa. Several artists in the past year have either included African countries in their tour schedules, or have responded to individual countries’ invitations to perform there. Reggae dancehall star Capleton, who is known affectionately as King Shango to his fans, was given royal treatment during his recent stop in Zimbabwe. He is the 11th reggae star to visit Zimbabwe in recent years. In an interview with Zimbo Jam, he admitted that he had not expected that kind of welcome. Throngs of fans were waiting for him,
many of them children who ran for miles just to catch a glimpse of this dancehall icon. You can continue reading the post and view more pictures here: ZIMBABWE: Capleton – “I Feel at Home” | i-reggae.
Meanwhile, Morgan Heritage has wrapped up their own show in Freetown, Sierra Leone, and they graciously agreed to an interview with Afrofusion. You’ll be able to watch that interview here very soon, as well as some video of their massive show at the National Stadium. For now here’s a gallery of photos from that show. Morgan Heritage’s love for Sierra Leone is unmistakable, and their fans there obviously love them back! Bless…
