A lot of frustration was exhibited online by music fans following the cancellation of the much-anticipated Tarrus Riley concert that was supposed to be held at the Lugogo cricket oval on December 1.
The Jamaican star also expressed his feelings on his Facebook page.
“I have waited my entire career and it was like a dream come true to play in Kampala,” read part of his long post.
In a statement, the director of RedFog (the event’s promoters), Charles Basajja, said the Just The Way You Are Jamaican star was requested to postpone the show because the key sponsors felt they needed more time to promote the event adequately.
Basajja revealed that the show would take place in March 2018 at the same venue, and the actual date is yet to be announced. Ugandan reggae maestro Maddox Sematimba, a surprise act and local best reggae DJs will also grace the stage.
Tarrus is celebrated for his famous global hits like She’s Royal, Gimme Likkle One Drop, Don’t Come Back, Sorry is a Sorry Word, and his latest Just the Way You Are.
Today, Tarrus ranks among the most popular reggae artistes in Uganda, with a fan base that continues to grow by the day since the announcement by RedFog that he would be performing in the country for the first time ever.
