Live From Kingston returns on May 4 for it’s third staging, with a spectacular line-up featuring Ky-Mani Marley, Protoje, Nyla, Jesse Royal and Kelissa.

Adding to the allure of the free live music, patrons will have an exclusive opportunity to browse the Massiv clothing collection, a favourite of sidewalk ‘fashionistas’ and celebrities alike, as Rihanna has been spotted sporting the brand.

Billboard-charting recording artist Protoje – who is affiliated with the I&I Worldwide outfit that produces the event – recently released his sophomore album, The 8-Year Affair, to worldwide critical acclaim.

This will be Protoje’s last performance in Jamaica before he tours the United States’ West Coast with his band, The Indiggnation. Protoje will also be touring several European countries.

Rasta Love, a single from his debut album, The 7-Year Itch, which features Ky-Mani Marley, recently topped nine million views onYouTube.

Marley, who ended his tour of Europe in February, adds a unique fusion of reggae, dancehall and hip hop to the eclectic line-up.

Kelissa McDonald’s soulful delivery and memorable melodies have captivated the hearts and attention of audiences from Kingston to Accra in recent months.

She recently released a music video for the single Afrika, from her EP Rebel In Disguise, which was filmed on the continent in Nigeria and Ghana.

Jesse Royal, one of the emerging front-runners of the reggae revival and a student from the school of the late Phillip ‘Fattis’ Burrell, is gaining renown for his irresistible magnetism and rousing performances.

Nyla well known

Singer and songwriter Nyla has worked with some of the most recognised names in the music business, collaborating with Akon as part of the Brick and Lace duo, and writing tracks for J Lo and Christina Aguilera.

She recently released a new single, titled Stand Up, to launch her solo career.

To add to the line-up, Base Kingston & Belle will host a pop-up shop by Massiv’s “clothing with a message” and DJ Yaadcore will be at the controls between sets.

Showtime is 7 p.m. at Base Kingston & Belle in Manor Park Plaza. There is no cover charge for the event, so patrons can look forward to supporting the limited edition clothing and artist merchandise that will be available for purchase.
