Jamaican dancehall star Demarco jetted in the country at 2:45am local time (EAT) Thursday aboard a Turkish Airlines plane ahead of his second performance in Uganda at the Club Music Street Jam on Saturday.

Dressed in black T-shirt and jeans, the Ghetto Youth singer alongside local music promoter Suudi Lukwago later delayed at the clearance desk for over an hour trying to sort out luggage issue.

He said he feels at home in Uganda and is honoured to be able to come back for the second time following his 2012 concert.

“I have been asked to come back to Uganda and that means I am doing a good job. It’s a great honour to be here again and I promise all Ugandans a wonderful performance all Saturday. Tell every Ugandan to show up for a massive moment with me,” he spoke in Jamaican patois.

Born Collin Demar Edwards, the Jamaican is best known for his hit singles "Duppy Know Ah Who Fi Frighten", featuring on the Shoot Out Riddim, "Fallen Soldiers.” 

He also produced the Top Speed Riddim where he recorded the song "Gal Dem Want" with the Alliance leader Bounty Killer. He recently recorded a remix to Rihanna’s hit Rude Boy.

He has also done collabos with Ugandan dancehall singer Peter Miles and is expected to record more with some local artists.

Street Jam is expected to attract several local artists and will also feature a deejay.

Club Silk media officer Moses Opolot assured everyone to come in droves flaunting documents showing the event’s approval by city authorities.
