Fresh from being selected as the only Ugandan artiste who will perform at Tarrus Riley’s show in Kampala in December, reggae legend Maddox Ssematimba might have something else to be very excited about! The Namagembe star, we have learnt, might be recording a collabo with Riley.
According to sources at Bolt Digital- the company behind the Riley’s visit to Kampala, the Jamaican maestro was wowed by Maddox’s jams and he hinted on a possibility of doing something with him.
“He was extremely impressed by Maddox’s deep reggae beats; he asked if it would be nice for the two of them to work on something together,” the source told us. Maddox will share the stage with Riley when the latter performs at the Lugogo Cricket Oval on December 1.
Riley is famous for reggae jams like Don’t come back, Sorry is a sorry word, She’s royal, Gimme likkle one drop, and his latest, Just the way you are. Riley, aged 38, was born in Bronx, New York and raised in Jamaica. He is a member of the Rastafari movement. His father is the veteran reggae singer Jimmy Riley. Keep the Ugandan flag high Maddox!
