The BLAKKOUT TOUR was conceptualized by Karamanti, the CEO and owner of Blakkwuman22 Music. It is being executed by members of the Blakkwuman22 Music team with assistance from Disc-Jock Redeem (of Roots FM) who will be the official MC for all the shows. The tag line for the tour is “Substance Ova Hype & Di Music Still Nice”; emphasizing the fact that music does not have to be hyped up or lyrically deplorable to be enjoyable.
