KENYAN dancehall music artiste Jerry Kamau better known as Skeleton Man, has ventured into TV.
Dubbed Dancehall Mashup Live, the show hopes to promote local dancehall, hip-hop and reggae music artistes. He came up with the concept after learning that most Kenyan musicians especially in dancehall, ragga and reggae genres, barely get any recognition or worse still, airplay.
He says: "One of our aims is to take Kenyan dancehall/reggae music to an international level. But we realised that it's only achievable if these artistes were recognised and given a platform where they can showcase their talents. We are also focusing on our upcoming artistes in order to give them hope that their abilities are never in vain. We have segments in the show that will put all these in proper focus."
The show will be hosted by Skeleton Man and TV siren Dada Afrique, formerly of KTN. However, he is yet to settle on a specific television station to broadcast it. Skeleton Man has three albums under his name; Touch Me, Safari Hatari and Sonkoism. His latest jam, Uhuru's Innocent, will be launched next week.
