Busy Signal offers election advice ahead of Saturday concert

Jamaican dancehall and reggae artiste Busy Signal is in Kenya ahead of the Free Up Peace Concert which is scheduled for Saturday night at the KICC.

Speaking at a press conference at the Panari Hotel on Thursday, the Free Up hit maker delivered a message of peace, noting that Kenyans are just days to the August 8 general election.

“We should all have peace from within our hearts, our thoughts and our actions. Life is too precious. We should also be very careful on who we choose to elect as our leaders,” he said.

The Jamaican artiste also revealed what he had to sacrifice over the years so as to remain relevant in the music industry.


“It has taken a lot of focus and sacrifice to be where I am today. I end up forgetting my birthday at times, because I am usually so busy working on my music in the studio. It is important to keep one’s focus, as well as knowing where one’s goals and priorities lie,” he said.

The artiste was excited ahead of the concert on Saturday, saying he plans to arrive early at the venue so that he can witness performances from other artistes.

“It will be a celebration of greatness, the 33rd Anniversary of Shashamane. I’m just awaiting just to be there to represent for Kenya,” he said. “This will not be just a show, but a whole Busy Signal experience.”
