Get ready for a proper ragga show by two universal raggamuffin singer, Ras Demo aka Demolition Man and YT. Uprising already experienced successful shows of both singers but this time they prepared special show full of freestyle and original tracks served with their usual rocket speed.

In one word, the best description of the artist known as Demolition Man or Demo also known as Wayne Young is; versatile. He was born in Hackney, East London, England and is a singer, songwriter, emcee, engineer, lyricist and producer. When asked why he refers to himself as ‘Demolition Man’? He explains that, “Demolition Man is here to demolish all evil things.” Demo’s drive, love and energy can be felt through his words, power and sound in his musical creations. On the rocky road to being truly recognized and appreciated in the music industry, this hard -working artists’, positivity and determination can literally be felt. Music is Demolition Man’s first love and there is no stopping him now.
