|Damien Marley, will for the first time be playing 2 concerts in Ghana in March 2013. He will be rocking the stage with American Hip-hop superstar, NAS.
Both 2 concerts will be happening in Accra on Friday, March 1, 2013 and Saturday, March 2, 2013.
The exact venues for both shows have not been confirmed yet but with some ‘gossip’ reaching the Ghamaicans Crew, it is likely Damian and Nas would be picking the Accra Sports Stadium and the Labadi Beach for both concerts.
Damian Marley’s management in an earlier conversation revealed to Ghamaicans that the dome of the Accra International Conference Centre would be too small for both Damian and Nas hence they would need a more bigger space that can engage a bigger audience.
This tour is line with a tour project dubbed “Damian Marley-Nas Africa Tour” – which relates to their joint album released in 2010 called “Distant Relatives”. Countries to host Damian Marley and Nas are South Africa, Ethiopia, Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Nigeria and Ghana. The team would be playing 2 concerts in each of the mapped countries.
Ghana however would be ending the chart as the last country Damian and Nas will bring the crème-de-la-crème show. The album “Distant Relatives” currently rates as the highest selling Reggae album on the international market which has sold almost 5 million copies. The album when released in 2010 sold 57,000 copies in USA alone during the first week – higher than any Reggae album sold.
Damian ‘Junior Gong’ Marley is the youngest son of legendary singer, BOB MARLEY. Below is the entire tour chart for Africa Tour. Zilla!!!
