Reggae Afrobeat Jamrock is a modular fully scripted production that features a deft use of props, elaborate costume, audio-visual content, special effects and a large support cast to deliver an exhilarating concert experience. Originally built around the enthralling catalogue of Reggae and Afrobeat Fusion . Reggae Afrobeat Jamrock Nigeria showcases legends amidst a stellar cast of the best in the game in a pulsating no-breaks interpretation of a line up of some of the biggest hits of the last two decades.
Advancements in recording technology has caused a sharp decline in musicianship. The use of programmed beats and tones to create and perform music and the over-reliance on backing tracks and lip-synching by a host of Africa’s new generation star acts has led to concert-goers feeling short-changed.
Reggae and Afrobeat Fusion is the leading light of the new generation of African elite performers now working with Saleby Production
Robert Nesta Marley, OM (6 February 1945 – 11 May 1981) was a Jamaican singer-songwriter who became an international musical and cultural icon, blending mostly reggae, ska, and rocksteady in his compositions. Starting out in 1963 with the group the Wailers, he forged a distinctive songwriting and vocal style that would later resonate with audiences worldwide.
The Wailers would go on to release some of the earliest reggae records with producer Lee ``Scratch`` Perry. After the Wailers disbanded in 1974, Marley pursued a solo career upon his relocation to England that culminated in the release of the album Exodus in 1977, which established his worldwide reputation and elevated his status as one of the world's best-selling artists of all time, with sales of more than 75 million records. Exodus stayed on the British album charts for 56 consecutive weeks. It included four UK hit singles: ``Exodus``, ``Waiting in Vain``, ``Jamming``, and ``One Love``. In 1978, he released the album Kaya, which included the hit singles ``Is This Love`` and ``Satisfy My Soul``. The greatest hits album, Legend, was released in 1984, three years after Marley died. It subsequently became the best-selling reggae album of all time.
