KINGSTON (Rjr): Dancehall singjay Mavado may soon set up shop in the continent of Africa, ahead of an upcoming performance there.
Reports out of the West African nation of Ghana suggest that Mavado, whose given name is David Brooks, has expressed interest in migrating there, to local journalists at a pre-concert press conference in Accra last weekend.
The concert is being hosted by Ghanaian reggae artiste, Samini, who discussed the possibility of featuring the Alliance singjay on his show two years ago, while visiting Jamaica.
Now, the "Gully God" has hinted that he would love to move to Ghana in the near future as soon as he acquires land there; claiming that "Ghana reminds me of home. (I’m) an African due to ancestry and (I’m) very excited about the prospects of living in the Motherland."
Mavado is not the first Dancehall/Reggae act to signal his intentions to migrate to Ghana.
Rita Marley, widow of legendary Reggae singer, Bob Marley, currently resides at Konkonuru in the eastern region of the country.
Additionally, Reggae superstar, Sizzla Kalonji has made his presence felt in Africa; owning acres of land in Zimbabwe and doing charitable works within the country.
