Reggae/Dancehall Artist Sizzla Kalonji is a man that has always been about consciousness, community, and nation building. He makes classic music that uplifts and entertains the people, and his Humanitarian work is recognized and honored around the world. Controversy is never too far when it comes to the Artist, and recently, news of him clashing with the Marley family over the Nyah Binghi Rastafarian grounds in Scott’s Pass in Clarendon, Jamaica came to prominence. He addressed the conflict recently on the “Running Africa” show with Kabu Maat Kheru on Irie FM.
Joined by Ras Mikey, Sizzla used the Irie FM platform to clarify what has been happening in regards to the Nyah Binghi grounds, and the Marley family wanting to reclaim it from the residents. While this conflict has been ongoing for years, it wasn’t until a recent interview with Stephanie Marley on Irie FM that it has been placed back in the spotlight. For years there were reports of the Marley family and the Bob Marley Foundation taking measures to evict residents of the grounds. Sizzla, who acts as the President and Treasurer for the Nyah Binghi community, made it public the issues surrounding those actions. The recent Interview found Sizzla sharing new developments on the land, plans that were made for it, and new information that helps to bring more clarification to the situation.
