While away on a two week Northeast tour promoting his new single “Road Dawg,” international dancehall/reggae artiste Khago announced that he has inked a deal with Concepts Artists Group (CAG). CAG will be responsible for handling all management decisions and bookings for his live appearances.
Khago, real name Ricardo Gayle gained worldwide acclaim for his mega hit “Nah Sell Out Mi Friend Dem” along with another super hit “Blood Ah Boil.” CAG is a full management company that does artist management, bookings and appearances along with touring, merchandising management, label distribution and consulting services.
This latest move by Khago comes after the much publicized split in working relationship with Joseph Bogdavonich, owner of Down Sound Records and Down Sound producer Skatta Burrell.
In a release Khago stated: “Every song I write, artist I collaborate with, producer I work with, venue I play, promoter I work with, all these decisions including when I tour and what songs I perform, I want my own management to be in charge of that whole decision making process to insure that those decisions are all being made with my best interest in mind both as an entertainer, artist, and musician.”
Khago who was on the road through to May 6, made stops in New England, Yarmouth, Cape Cod and Boston. While in Boston he visited the Boston Marathon Bombing site and delivered flowers to the memorial site on behalf of the people of Jamaica. He then went to New York, Chicago, Kansas City and St. Louis to do shows.
The talented artiste will be releasing his first official US-mix-tape titled “Road Dawg”in July. His debut album “Push Music” is set to be released in fall of this year.
