Zimbabwe meets Jamaica in the UK


IN what promises to be a thriller, Zim-dancehall artistes Killer T and Shinsoman will perform in the United Kingdom on the same stage as United States-based Jamaican reggae star Kranium on August 23.

The show, dubbed UK Summer Slam 2014, is an event to mark UK-based Zimbabwean music promoter King Alfred’s 26th anniversary in the music industry.

King Alfred has been instrumental in promoting Zimbabwean artistes in the UK for over a decade.

Shinsoman told NewsDay he was excited about the show.

“Tirikungonovakuwadza kuwadza (We will entertain them to the last)” he said.

Shinso added that it was a good thing that he would be meeting a Jamaican musician.

“We will learn a thing or two, at the same show that Zim-dancehall has gone to higher levels,” he said.

Bodyslam Entertainment’s Tinashe Mashita, who will be accompanying the Killer T and Shinsoman, said he was looking forward to have the musicians exchange notes.

“We hope this does good for Zim-dancehall as these two musicians will get a chance to exchange notes with their Jamaican counterpart.”

He said all the logistics were now in place as the musicians had already secured the needed documentation to travel to the UK.

Born August 12 1990 in Montego Bay, Jamaica, Kranium made an impact even when he was relatively new to dancehall about three years ago.

In 2012, he made his break when he performed the hit song Gotta Believe, riding on the Kush Morning riddim and he is currently making waves with another hit, Nobody Has To Know.
