Reggae star Tarrus Riley lined up for Swangz All-Star finale

  • Written by NICHOLAS BAMULANZEKI

Jamaican-American reggae singer Tarrus Riley has been confirmed as a guest performer at the grand finale of the Swangz All-Star Tour slated for August 31 at Lugogo Cricket Oval.

The reggae star will perform alongside the best of Uganda’s music talent. The finale will wind up a three-month Ugandan music celebration dubbed ‘Bell Jamz presents The Swangz All-Star Tour.’

The Swangz All-Star Tour kicked off in May and celebrates a decade of music for a production house, Swangz Avenue. The tour is organized in partnership with Bell Jamz, a platform that supports local music.

Riley, born in the Bronx, New York and raised in Jamaica, made his recording debut as a teenager. Since then, he has churned out a number of hits scaling several charts with a number of collaborations with artists like Konshens, Vybz Kartel, Demarco, Major Lazer, and Ellie Goulding. This will be his first performance in Uganda.

Benon Mugumbya, the founder of Swangz Avenue, says: “This show, unlike others, will be different. Tarrus is not the main act but, rather, a guest performer who will perform alongside our Ugandan artistes. As opposed to previous shows where Ugandan artistes have curtain raised for international acts, our Ugandan artistes will share a stage with award-winning Tarrus Riley. We are very excited because this has not been done before.”
