DAMIAN_NAS

 

Damian Marley & Nas Africa Tour has been extended into June 2013. As announced earlier that the duo would be playing a concert in Ghana this March 2013, the even calendar has been postponed to a further date later this year.

Reason for the postponement is because more African countries are still bidding to book the duo (Damian Marley & Nas) for more gigs on the continent; this however, forced the team to wait and confirm all bookings for Africa before starting the whole tour.

Countries who booked earlier included South Africa, Ethiopia, Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Nigeria and Ghana.

The tour is line with a project dubbed “Damian Marley-Nas Africa Tour” – which relates to their joint album released by both musicians in 2010 called “Distant Relatives”.

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” 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.
