Thunderous applause greeted the Minister of Information, Culture, Youth and Sports, Olivia ‘Babsy’ Grange after the historic proclamation of Reggae Month at King’s House and she invited singer Etana to assist with the unveiling of the Reggae Month logo, almost apologising for not being able to “have a long function with lots of music into the next morning”. Cheers were in abundance, and more were to come for Minister Grange as she described the insigna on the logo. “Energetic and towering mark, a star of David illuminating upward, communicating the message. The message is, Imagine and Believe.”

The large gathering comprised some of reggae’s greatest talents, including pioneers and young turks, composers, arrangers, producers, poets, musicians and singers. The Observer sought to ascertain what Reggae Month means to them. Chairman of the Recording Industry Association of Jamaica (RIAJam), Cleveland “Clevie” Browne said:

“This is indeed an historic moment for the reggae music industry. I can see additional impact from the income generated for the reggae music industry in Jamaica. It will eventually impact on all the collection rights due to our artistes, producers, writers and the creators of music in general, since we expect more public performance of our music on radio and all media houses. It will impact hopefully on the economy as well, through more income earned through the greater use of our music throughout the world.”
