Kalado takes on Europe
Dancehall artiste Kalado is on tour in Europe. The tour, which kicked off earlier this month, will come to an end in the first week of May.
In a media release, Kalado spoke about the progress he has made so far.
"The tour is going smooth thus far. Promoting my music and enhancing my brand are very important to me, so when the opportunity arises for me to go out to the world, I try to capitalise on every opportunity," said Kalado.
The tour will be making stops in several countries, including Finland, Germany, Austria, and France.
This is not the first time that Kalado has toured the continent.
"The fans in Europe have always been supportive of my career, and I can't thank them enough for the love that they've always shown to me," Kalado added.
Kalado, whose given name is Eton Gordon, recently signed with New York-based Donsome Booking Agency and is represented by Adrian 'Donsome' Hanson.
"This is my first time signing with an agent. I think Donsome can do much on the international platforms, step things up, and take some pressure off me," he said. "He's the person I heard of who's serious on his work and makes sure things happen [instead of] just sitting and waiting for artistes to make it happen and then reaping like others."
Originally from the Maxfield Avenue area in Kingston, Kalado moved to Clarendon, where he attended the Edwin Allen High School.
After heading back to Kingston, he pursued his musical ambitions and joined the Bounty Killer-led Alliance Next Generation.
