Emerging Dancehall/Reggae singjay, Khago and the self-professed "Flossing King," Flippa Mafia are preparing to take the United States by storm as they ready themselves for the Nah Sell Out Mi Fren Dem tour.
The Global Life Records/Mega Chin sponsored event, featuring Khago as the main act, will take place this Saturday at the Stars Banquet Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Patrons interested in attending the show will be charged US$30 pre-sold, with higher prices come show time. Fans can expect performances from Khago as well as Flippa Mafia, who's long established a strong fan base in the Northeastern United States since his debut on the mainstream Dancehall scene in 2008. Other artistes slated to perform on the Nah Sell Out Mi Fren Dem stage show include Philadelphia-based artistes, Ras Professor along with Stabby Laa, G Warrior amongst special guest performers.
Khago, who rose to prominence with the single, Nah Sell Out Mi Fren Dem in April 2010, has continued to elevate his status as one of Dancehall's must-see prodigies. The singjay built on that momentum; charting hit singles this year such as Blood a Boil, Tun Up Di Ting on the internationally-acclaimed, Overproof Riddim and his most recent single, If This Is Not Love, produced by Notnice/Corey Todd Records.
Meanwhile, Flippa Mafia announced his return to the Jamaican Dancehall scene with a bang last month, with the single Flossin' on the XXX Riddim. Additionally, the "Flossing Kings" recently unveiled singles such as Nah Wish Bad and the controversial single, Money Fight War; calling out many of Dancehall's elite artistes such as Bounty Killer, Vybz Kartel and long-time rival, Elephant Man, amongst others. Flippa Mafia is no stranger to the Philly faithful as he performed there for the Philly Summer Fest in 2007 alongside Elephant Man as well as Lancaster Hall, alongside Demarco in 2009.
This show promises to be a must-see as Khago and Flippa Mafia aim to continue Dancehall music’s resurgence in the United States.
