Hello Jah people,

Greetings in the name of His Majesty,

What are your favorite reggae singer ? I know it's not a conscious question but for curiosity i'm interesting about the preference of JAH people about reggae !

I don't listen to reggae. Reggae trend or fashion has never been a part of I and I ancient black culture and never will.

Reggae has done more for black liberation then you or I alone ever could. True you dont know the power that the conscious dancehall used to have in the black community. Or how roots music transcends generations and has evangelised the righteous messages of Rastafari to InI brethren and sistren across the globe who may never have heard so. True you refuse to bare witness to the healing power of conscious chanting.... MUSIC full stop has always been a part of african history and culture. Cant reason with I say a burning spear isnt a big part of why so many people today say Marcus Garvey

word sound and power my brethren

Then why is Africa still in a similar condition, if not worse, than it was decades ago?

not because of conscious artist and soundman

try white supremacy
try crab ina barrell
try ignorance toward InI own culture as the reasons plus more

things which the rigbt form of music can fight against

you say things are worse.... in a time where conscious reggae music is less available to the masses. So how can IT be the cause of destruction

One of the reasons a lot of African people don't take reggae on a serious note is because the ganja smoking makes the reggae movement seem like a big joke, I don't know if you have seen it too, but personally I have. Reggae is only used for entertainment purposes by a majority of people right here, so it could never educate them.

I thought convening meetings for educational and enlightenment purposes within the African communities would do a much better job than reggae.
