Simon Okelo of One Vibe Africa, partners of the event who also hosted Samini for this year’s “Kijiji Night” was overwhelmed at the great attendance.
He lauded Samini heavily in a series of tweets. One Vibe Africa are also organizers of Madaraka Festival, a yearly music & arts festival in Seattle, Washington, USA.
The night saw a launch of Samini’s “UNTAMED” album CD with new set of merchandise and the other part saw him perform at the Kijiji Night — both events hosted at the same venue.
Samini serenaded audience to songs from his album and sold hard copies too.
Samini did a first launch for the album in Ghana in December 2018, at a press and industry sitting before the main release on his birthday on December 22, 2018.
Samini is tipped to embark on a global tour with the album soon.
This follows early successes recorded by the album in January 2019. “Untamed”, his 7th studio album entered Billboard “Top 10 Reggae Albums” on January 1 and also won “Album Of The Year” on Reggaeville, Europe’s biggest Reggae/Dancehall Network, making Samini the first African Musician to win that category the first time in seven years the award was instituted.
