After making his grand Reggae Sumfest Dancehall Night debut at Catherine Hall in Montego Bay, rising deejay Kalado is enjoying a feeling of accomplishment for a job that many critics agree was very well done.
It was a night on which Dancehall royalty brought their 'A' game to the stage, and with the stakes very high, Kalado measured up admirably, signalling to the world that his time is now. Receiving top marks in areas such as dress, deportment, style and stage presence, the "Personally" singer was brimming with confidence as he took command of the Sumfest stage and delivered his well-rehearsed set, solidly connecting with fans, including quite a few new converts.
His set included songs like "Good Good", "Personally", "Body Nuh Dead", "Make Me Feel", "Sad Streets", "Pree Money", "Pay Dem No Mind" and "Take A Ride", all of which have made significant inroads in the dancehall and have contributed to the spiralling success of this young artiste.
"Sumfest was awesome," a very satisfied Kalado recalled. "I spent several hours visualizing my performance, what I would wear, how I would greet fans and what one could consider the basic things, because I understand just how important it is to get it right. Rehearsals went well; management stayed on top of things throughout (as usual) and it's a heartfelt thank you from Kalado to all the people who helped to make this happen.
"Big respect to the band, Summerfest Productions and, of course, the fans. The feedback has been very positive and encouraging," he stated, adding that he was looking forward to performing on the 23rd staging of Reggae Sumfest 2015.
No doubt, Kalado's performance has ensured that fans will follow him to his next shows which include the Montego Bay Jerk Festival, Bikini Sundayz, Dream Live in Negril and in the motherland, Africa, in September.
Always one to cater to the needs of his fans, wherever in the world they are stationed, Kalado is giving ample preparation all his upcoming events.
