Dancehall artiste Kalado returned to Jamaica after a successful six-week tour of Europe only to find that his home had been burglarised and robbed of various foreign currencies, Hype Life Magazine has learned.
The tour, which also featured dancehall artiste Tiana, made stops in several countries, including France, Switzerland and Germany.
“I have to look pass this and keep the focus on my career,” Kalado told media reporters.
“The experience was good and I learned a lot about the environment and diverse cultures. Di show dem gwan good, every show had a good turn out and the reception from the fans great. I learn a lot about different people and the type of performance and music they like. Performing in Europe is different from performing in Jamaica,” Kalado explained.
He also pointed out that there was diversity in the different cultures of patrons who attended the shows. This, he felt, attests to the far reach of his music and an expansion of his fan base.
“I plan to go back to Europe soon because there is a lot of ground to be covered over there. But the tour was, overall, a good learning experience,” he said.
Kalado has released some new singles to maintain his presence in the marketplace.
These include Fling It Anywhere, Hard Knock Life and Ghetto Youths Want Money.
“As you know, I have new management now with Miguel Noble, so we are both working together to move my career to the next level,” said Kalado.
