'She Nah Leggo' singer Lanz on Canada tour



Dancehall artiste Lanz is now in Canada for a 10-day tour involving at least three club dates and other promotion appearances. 

The first show dubbed 'Magnificient Black': The Savage Girls Edition was held at the Empire Banquet Hall on March 2nd and then he will be performing at 'Lanz: March Madness' at the Mobay Jerk spot in Brampton, Ontario on March 9th.

"I am really looking forward to performing for my fans in Canada, there is a lot of buzz around the shows based on the feedback on my social media pages, so the shows are really going to be lit," Lanz said. 

Lanz had to postpone a pair of shows a few weeks ago because of 'logistical issues'.

"The process was a bit slow so things go held up but now, everything is set," he said. 

The tour ends on March 12th. 

Lanz had his big breakthrough last year with 'She Nah Leggo' song  was produced by the multi-talented artiste and producer Lanz himself and Andrew Reid, and was released on the Unisyz Muzik/Ubique Muzyq label. The song dominated the local party scene, and FM radio, and a video for the song has hit the 1.3 million mark on Youtube.

"The song is still doing well overseas, we are getting feedback from selectors all over the world, Canada, US, Africa, and Europe. The song just connect with people on a different level," Lanz said. 

The deejay recently inked a recording and management contract with Lifestyle Entertainment. He participated and won a celebrity tournament  during the launch of the Dragon Stout World Domino Championship at Gee Wee Car Park last Thursday. He donated the winnings, $125,000, to a golden age home. 

"It was a great experience, I always like giving back and I had some fun while doing it," he said. 

Lanz is currently promoting the single, 'Boom' song which was released a month ago on the Unisyz Muzik/Ubique Muzyq label, and has already racked up thousands of views on Youtube. 

"We are going hard with 'Boom' because the streets are responding to it already," Lanz, whose given name is Orlando Francis, said. 

Born and raised in Mandeville, Manchester, he came to Kingston to pursue music several years ago. He got his first taste of success in the music business in 2012 when he produced Potential Kid's hit single, 'A Yah So Nice'.

"Right now, 2018 looks very promising, the career looks great," he said.
