ONE year after he launched his third album, Ancient Future, sing-jay Protoje kicks off the Ancient Future Live tour Saturday at Hope Gardens in St Andrew.

The gangly artiste will perform the 11 songs from the set which he co-produced with Phillip ‘Winta’ James.

Ancient Future includes the hit songs Who Knows and Stylin’. The former, done with Chronixx, has done well in the United Kingdom.

“He’s having a lot of success with Who Knows and there is demand for him in Europe and North America. But we have to do some shows at home, that’s important,” said Lorna Bennett, Protoje’s manager.
