Damian Robert Nesta “Jr. Gong” Marley, Last born Son to Late Jamaican Reggae superstar Bob Marley is in the Country to perform in street fusion 2017 in a life performance. The two-time Grammy award-winning reggae and dancehall artiste jetted in the country on the 29th may.
For the first time ever in East Africa, Damian is set to perform on Wednesday at the Carnivore Grounds in Nairobi. The concert will also feature local artists Wyre, Jua Cali, Khaligraph Jones and leading DJs.
But the super star was surprised by turn of events when a re known journalist Chiko Lawi shouted tones of insults at the artiste when they landed at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport for what many didn’t understand what really caused him to have hard feeling against the world famous artist.
According to Chiko, there was a woman and her daughter at the airport who just wanted to say “hi” to Damian but one of his bodyguards was not for it. Chiko who was around was puzzled and it’s not clear what transpired between him and Damian but he claimed that one of his bodyguards insulted his mother and he could not keep quiet but went ahead to rant on social media. He didn’t mince his words.
“Damian Marley just ignored a young fan with her daughter because he is too tired! I just could NOT hold it back….especially when his people said f* my Moms….I almost became physical yo!!! This is Kenya….a*hole! 😒😒 Forget Jamrock….Welcome to the 254! Here, I can keep it real…. …and y’all about to criticise me…..WHATEVER….He brought my Mother into it. 🚶🏾🚶🏾🚶🏾 Sauti Sol na Nyashinski have never insulted me….so….😌😌.”
