Down Sound Records recording artiste Khago showed off his box office appeal last weekend with a pair of nightclub gigs in the United States, where he pulled out at least 350 patrons at each show.
"The clubs were almost full, and it was Khago alone in concert, so that shows that the music is connecting in a big way in the United States and with Down Sound pushing my music in these markets, things are definitely looking up in my career," Khago said in a release.
On July 27th, he appeared at a club in Rochester, New York, thrilling the crowd with his megahits like Nah Sell Out Mi Friend Dem Part and Part Two, as well as number one hit singles Tun Up the Ting and Tax Inna My World. On the following night at the show in Virginia Beach, Virginia, Khago's management team led by CEO Josef Bogdanovich, brought in a selector from New York to bolster Khago's set, giving his performance an added flair. The Elements nightclub, which has a capacity of 400 plus and caters to Latino and African American audiences weened on hip hop, was jumping as almost 400 persons came out to see him that night.
Khago did not disappoint as his hits were met with major forwards, and he was able to perform his new hit single, Pretty Wine, on the Chase Millz Records label. He invited three girls, two Caucasian and one Latina, onstage to demonstrate their best 'pretty wine'. The performance brought the house down as their liquor-influenced contortions had the audience in stitches. During his set, he also made mention of his celebrated feuds with artistes such as I Octane, Assassin and Sizzla, and with the expert selection of songs, he had the audience enraptured by his performance.
He returned to the island on Wednesday and headed to the Montego Bay Jerkfest where he performed alongside artistes such as Jahvinci, Konshens and others. The singjay is slated to appear on a show in the Jungle nightclub in Negril on August 6th, after which he has shows in Connecticut on August 11th, New Jersey on August 17th and the Montreal International reggae festival on August 18th in Canada.
"From Down Sound tek over the ting, Khago career ah shot, every week, mi a fly out," he said.
The deejay released a new pop-flavoured single called 'Green Light' earlier this week and a one-drop song Cry Myself to Sleep.
