Kalado, who has secured quite a following in that section of North America, will have the distinction of being the headline act at his very first show in Toronto. Scheduled for the Blue Diamond Club on Saturday, May 24, the event is entitled ‘Good Good Bring Life’, which is the title of one of the artiste’s hugely popular songs.
Radio disc jocks and sound system selectors in Canada have been filling the airwaves with the sounds of Kalado and fans have been showing their total appreciation for singles including Make Me Feel, Personally, Pree Money and Pay Dem No Mind. His latest single, Take A Ride, for which the video was officially released at Famous, is also poised to make a double impact on the Canadian massive who have firmly embraced this dancehall act.
The build-up to the event has exceeded expectations and Kalado is eagerly anticipating the moment he steps on the Toronto stage to thrill his people. “I went to Canada last year November, but that visit involved a video project with a Canadian artiste. This time will be different. I am going to perform for my fans and tell them thanks for their support and for giving me this opportunity to be with them live and direct,” a very gungho Kalado explained.
“As artistes, it is important that we create songs that can carry us way beyond the shores of Jamaica and connect with people of different cultures and languages,” he said further. The year 2014 has already seen impressive growth in Kalado’s career, a development which he says is the result of all the hard work he has been putting in throughout the years. Also on his overseas calendar for this year is a European tour which will take place between August and September.
