The independent label Down Sound Records has inked a production and booking deal with international recording artiste Khago to boost his presence in the international marketplace.
"We believe that Khago is going to be a part of the transformation to uplift dancehall to its former self. That's why we are interested in doing albums with him that are geared towards particular markets. He can be the next big artiste out of Jamaica because of his crossover appeal and his wonderful work ethic which is on par with that of a Vybz Kartel," Josef Bogdanovich said.
"His ability to flow bar to bar in lyrical clashes with artistes like Assassin and Sizzla means that this artiste is a powerhouse, and beginning with these albums, we are marketing him as one of the future stars of dancehall music. He is a double threat because his reggae songs are very popular in Africa and Europe and his dancehall stuff is popular in the ethnic markets in the US, we believe he is a bonafide star."
Down Sound Records is known for discovering and nurturing talents such as Fantan Mojah, and Nanko. The company currently has a roster of new artistes that includes Harry Toddler, Specialist, Nature, Motion, Toya, Lollie Lue and G Warren.
Khago's publicity is still being handled by Claude Mills.
Khago performed at a show in St. Thomas called 'Ballas Splash' over the weekend and he will be performing at a show called Girls Graduation in St. Mary.
