“Chaka Demus & Pliers coming to my show were simply that — rumours,”  Salvado said. “This is why you have not see any artwork or official communication from us about them.”

Salvado, whose Africa Laughs show is returning for the 5th edition, further revealed that the show will instead feature Tanzanian bongo star Harmonize.

“Harmonize is going to bring the Valentines feeling to the show,” he noted.
