Kingston, Jamaica:– Dancehall star Munga Honourable recently returned to the island after completing a one month tour of the US. Munga, opened for ‘the fireman’ Capleton on the tour that saw him doing 26 performances in 15 states.
“It was just like it was back in the day when Capleton first brought me on the road with him. The tour feeling is amazing,” Munga said.
The hectic tour had the artiste travelling for at least 12 to 13 hours each day in between performances. Munga performed in places like Albany, New York, Bentley House of Soul in Nashville, Tennessee, the Lincoln Theatre in Raleigh, North Corolina and many more. Yet the ‘Gangsta Ras’, said his most memorable performance was at the West Indian Club in Hartford, Connecticut.
“I was amazed at the welcome I received from the crowed and when I started to perform, that took the energy in the club to new level,” Munga said.
Munga’s set included hits like Earthquake, Gangstas do Dem Own Ting, Nuh Flesh Weh Mi Fraid A, Rise My Own, Bad From Mi Born – which was one of the most well received tracks performed while on tour. He also performed, Wanted Man and Whine Pon It, as well as newly released tracks Private Dancer, Cologne, Space Fi Di Gal Dem and Clean and Fresh which he is set to do the video for.
He returned to the island on October 26 and since then has been heavily promoting his new music. Munga has also gone into production, starting his own label, Hilltop Records, which he currently has two artistes Mad Rhymez and Nazari Bastik.
In addition to his already hectic life, the deejay has been working with the Portmore Society, which has resulted in a a track called Girl Dem Check Fi Mi recorded on the Portmore Society’s Hot Is riddim.
Being on tour this time around Munga found that since his introduction into the dancehall industry, he has garnered followers from all over and his fan base has grown considerably. With all things being equal, both Europe and Africa will be seeing the ‘Gangsta Ras’ quite soon as he is now finalising appearances to concretise a two-month tour.
