Demarco Shows His Appreciation For The Kenyan Music Scene


From a major concert that took place in Dubai last weekend, Demarco has spend this whole week doing charity work in Nairobi ahead of his big concert slated for the Carnivore grounds tomorrow.

The singer joins a long list of dancehall and reggae artistes that have visited the country to entertain in the recent past. Kenya, like most African countries, has a mass following for music from the Caribbean, with artistes like Shaggy, Sean Paul and Cecile among others, entertaining Kenyans regularly.

Tarrus Riley and Ivorian Alpha Blondy fly in next week for more dancehall and reggae vibe.

After tomorrow’s show, Demarco will head to Guinea and then to Zimbabwe where he will complete his African tour.

But just as most reggae and dancehall artistes, Demarco’s heart is in Kenya and his love for his Kenyan fans cannot be hidden.

“We love Kenya. It is a good country with good people and beautiful women,” Demarco told Pulse.

“Kenya is more or less like Jamaica. From the way people dress to the way they party, we all seem to have the same culture and similar traditions,” he praised.

In fact, all week, the star has been sampling entertainment joins in Nairobi and showing his appreciation for the Kenyan music scene.

“It feels great to be here and I count it as a blessing. This shows how the hard work I have put in my music is finally paying. I get shows all over the world and everywhere I go, people appreciate and show me love,” said the father of three.

Some years ago, Kenyans used to regard reggae as a genre for the lower class in the party ladder, but the same cannot be said today as dancehall and reggae have found their way into upmarket clubs as well as the mainstream media.

In fact, Kenya is not only enjoying a windfall of Jamaican reggae visitors but also having a lot of its reggae singers doing collaborations with most international reggae stars.

With Redsan having made inroads into the biggest dancehall concerts across the world, Wyre, who recently won an international reggae award seems to have set his eyes high, even as he becomes one of the most sought after dancehall stars in Africa.

“I might not know many Kenyan reggae singers here, but I am aware that reggae is vibrant in Nairobi. The stars here just need to work harder. They should keep their focus knowing that there is room for them out there,” Demarco noted.

“My country is a God-fearing country and so is Kenya, and that is another reason why it has been easy for Jamaican artistes to feel at home here,” he quipped.
