    On National Heroes day, the late crown prince of reggae Dennis Brownwill be honored by the Jamaican Government.

    In recognition of his great outstanding musical achievements, on October 17 the Order of Distinction, Commander Class, will be bestowed on the singer posthumously.

    Dennis Brown is without a doubt one of Jamaica’s most influential music icons, throughout his career he recorded countless hit singles and albums. His body of work which spans from the late 60s to the time of his passing in 1999 is arguably one of the greatest catalogues of music in the modern era of Jamaican music.

    "Love and hate can never be friends

    Oh no, oh no

    Here I come with love and not hatred

    surely goodness and mercy

    shall follow I all the days of I life

    envy no one no wish to be with no evil man

    for there'll come the day

    when you'll be whipped by the father's hand

    Live up roots children

    Live up rasta children"

    live up Rasta children... Jah bless.


    WHAT VOICE...mmmm
