KAMPALA – Celebrated Jamaican reggae artiste, Tarrus Riley, real names Omar Riley, will for the first time perform in Uganda at the Swangz Avenue All Star Concert slated for August 31, 2018 at Lugogo Cricket Oval.
Swangz Avenue, one of Uganda’s leading record labels is behind Tarrus performing in Uganda as he is to headline their musical journey where they’ll be celebrating their 10th Anniversary.
The Just The Way You Are star was expected to perform in Uganda last year in December, but Red Fog and Bolt, an agency that was in charge of his trip failed to deliver, which left many Ugandans bitter.
However, Swangz Avenue brought back many smiles on July 2, 2018 when they confirmed that indeed the reggae star will perform at their all-star concert in August.
“Tarrus is coming to Uganda. We are excited that the deal has been sealed,” Benon Mugumbya, one of Swangz Avenue’s directors told the public yesterday.
Swangz Avenue is prominent for promoting local talent and Riley is the only international artiste that will perform at their 10th anniversary.
