Chronixx for Kampala Love Live Music Experience
- Written by Andrew Kaggwa
It’s been one of the most anticipated shows this month. In fact, with a string of bad Jamaican shows, many believe that this is going to be one of the finest authentic reggae shows that Ugandans will experience.
Chronixx, the reggae maestro behind hits like Smile Jamaica, They Don’t Know, Here Comes Trouble and Behind Curtain, among others, will be performing at the Ndere cultural center this evening.
Code-named the Kampala Love Live Music Experience, the show is organized by Talent Africa and Chronixx’s first African show off his Soul Circle Tour that saw him perform in Manchester on Wednesday and later in Kenya, Ethiopia and South Africa, among other countries.
Born Jamar Rolando McNaughton on October 10, 1992, he coined his stage moniker from a nickname ‘Little Chronicle’ that was given to him by his father.
He has enjoyed success at a young age, and he is widely considered as one of the artistes that are going to give reggae music a new lease of life. He has topped the Billboard reggae albums as well as performing at Glastonbury Music Festival, on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight show and winning numerous awards around the world.
At the Kampala show, Chronixx will perform alongside Cindy Sanyu, A-Pass, Janzi band with DJs Aludah, Ciza, Rasbrown, and Naselow.
The Kampala Love Live Music Experience is meant to be a calendar event that will be staged twice a year, according to a statement from Talent Africa. Each event will have a theme, the first one being Reggae Revival, with a relatively-young reggae artiste.
Tickets for the show go for Shs 30,000 while VIP tables go for Shs 300,000.
