Shaggy for Africa show this weekend
Diamond selling artiste and Grammy winner Orville ‘Shaggy’ Burrell, will be in performance this weekend at the Amahoro Stadium in Rwanda, Africa.
Shaggy, who has again been nominated for a Grammy, this time for his album Intoxication, will perform on Saturday night before thousands in what is expected to be one of the biggest concerts in Rwanda.
The internationally-acclaimed artiste, just two Saturdays ago had the world premiere of his music video at Mas Camp in New Kingston, Bad Man Don’t Cry, which has set the streets and the virtual world of the Internet abuzz. Peopled with celebrities from the areas of entertainment and sport, Bad Man Don’t Cry has a creative storyline which makes it amusing and highly entertaining. Among the celebrities who appear in the video are Olympic and world record holder in the one and two hundred meters, veteran deejay Josey Wales, Usain Bolt, Asafa Powell, Mavado, selector Sky Juice from Metro Media, Reneto Adams, Ragashanti, D’Angel, and of course, Shaggy himself.
After more than a decade in the business, seven albums to his credit, two of them multi-platinum, five #1 hits, and 11 top ten singles world wide, the Big Yard recording artiste continues to score big and entertain his fans. Making music that celebrates his culture and being an ambassador for Reggae music has always been the driving force in the heart of Jamaica’s only living Diamond-plus selling artiste.
