Reggae superstar Warrior King performed on August 2nd in Tokyo, Shibuta, then in Okinawa the following day. Both shows were successful and Japanese reggae fans are appreciative of the artiste's mellow brand of reggae.
"The response has been great so far, the Japanese are feeling Warrior's vibe and we are making some important
contacts in terms of marketing and promotion in this market," Phantom, Warrior King's road manager, said.
The tour continues with performances in Fukuoka on August 5th and climax the tour in Kyoto on August 8th.
A few months ago, he released his single Changes on the Mind Changes Riddim. Changes’ lyrics hold a powerful message about the changes that everyone inevitably faces through life and highlights the artiste’s versatility as a songwriter/singer. The song popped up on several reggae charts in France, England, Holland and Germany.
Warrior King, whose real name is Mark Dyer, first made his musical breakthrough with Virtuous Woman in 2001. Other singles to look out for include 'Call on Jah Name' on "Rahtid 3 - The Ultimate Reggae Dancehall Experience" which was released digitally on July 17th. He has also been promoting a new single, Wish Upon a Star featuring Blueberry.
The artiste is pleased with the progress of his latest album, Tell Me How Me Sound, which is selling well on the reggae iTunes and other download sites.
“The feedback has been remarkable so far especially with excellent sales from Central and South America on iTunes for the album, it appears that I and I have a large and growing fan base in that part of the world," he said.
He recently did a press junket in Panama to promote the album.
