Top African Reggae and World Music entertainer Wyre has confirmed his attendance and will perform at this year’s IRAWMA , which is creating quite a buzz among his fans worldwide. No stranger to winning awards, Wyre, known as “Da Lovechild” was nominated in the Annual Channel O Africa Music Awards in South Africa for his single Uprising in the best Reggae/Dancehall Category, which was featured on the Relationships Riddim produced by Arif Cooper for Fresh Ear Productions in 2011. Wyre was also nominated in the same awards for his hit single “She Say Dat” featuring Jamaican dancehall star Cecile in the same category. The single rose to the top of all major charts across Africa.
Wyre has been quite busy in the past year considering he has had two running corporate endorsements in addition to releasing winning singles on a consistent basis. Wyre has a corporate endorsement with one of Kenya’s leading mobile communications service provider, Safaricom alongside several other artists. He is also the current Brand Ambassador for Samsung in Kenya. As busy as his schedule is, he found it important to take time to attend and perform at this year’s IRAWMA.
