Coming hard on the heels of a fabulous video launch and an exciting performance at the LIME Celebrity showcase at Famous night club last Friday, fast-rising artiste Kalado is off to Canada this weekend for his debut performance.
Kalado, who has secured quite a following in that section of North America, will have the distinction of being the headline act at his very first show in Toronto. Scheduled for the Blue Diamond Club onSaturday, May 24, the event is entitled 'Good Good Bring Life', which is the title of one of the artiste's hugely popular songs.
Radio disc jocks and sound system selectors in Canada have been filling the airwaves with the sounds of Kalado, and fans have been showing their total appreciation for singles, including Make Me Feel, Personally, Pree MoneyandPay Dem No Mind. His latest single,Take A Ride, for which the video was officially released at Famous, is also poised to make a double impact on the Canadian massive who have firmly embraced this dancehall act.
The build-up to the event has exceeded expectations and Kalado is eagerly anticipating the moment he steps on the Toronto stage to thrill his people.
"I went to Canada last year November, but that visit involved a video project with a Canadian artiste. This time will be different. I am going to perform for my fans and tell them thanks for their support and for giving me this opportunity to be with them live and direct," a very gungho Kalado explained.
"As artistes, it is important that we create songs that can carry us way beyond the shores of Jamaica and connect with people of different cultures and languages," he said further.
