Lemn Sissay is a British writer of Ethiopian descent and he has an interesting connection to His Majesty which I wanted to share with the I them. Lemn acknowledges His Majesty in some of his poetry and his books:

"Bob Marley is quoted in Lemns second book which was published previous to Lemn finding out who his father was! Lemn found his late father in 1995 and discovered he had been a pilot for Ethiopian Airlines. As a co pilot he once carried Emperor Haile Selassie for which he was given an onyx ring embossed with The Golden Lion of The tribe of Judah. The ring is an exact replica of the ring worn by Bob Marley. Marley was given the ring by the Emperor through his son Prince Wossen. Lemn now has the self same ring!"
