“Tired of Being Broke” from his first debut EP, and this year is scheduled to release a full album titled, ‘Royalty’.
March of last year he was arrested for two days in Liberia, after some confusion, he was eventually charged with stirring political tension between Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and election rival Ambassador George Weah, having been invited to country by the president to perform at the 15,000 seat ATS Stadium.
Rita Marley, widow of the reggae legend, was supposed to make an appearance although she had pulled out due to illness. Her invitation was instead sent to George Weah, and was interpreted as an expression of political support, leading to Kameko’s arrest, just two days prior to the start of his Tired of Being Broke Tour. All charges were eventually dropped the following week.
