KENYA'S president Uhuru Kenyatta; Prime Minister Andrew Holness; Entertainment & Culture Minister Olivia “Babsy” Grange; and Lisa Hanna, Grange's Opposition counterpart, exited their motorcades to cheers from the 35,000 flag-waving guests attending the 57th Independence Grand Gala on Tuesday evening.
However, the loudest reception inside the National Stadium in Kingston was reserved for Sizzla Kalonji, whose 120-strong motorcycle convoy made a grand entrance at the annual celebration.
“Rasta run the world!” shouted a guest in the Bleachers section, as the revving procession passed.
Sizzla — who, along with Rita Marley, received a Reggae Icon Award for their contribution to reggae music — sat pillion side-saddle behind the lead motorcycle, flying a Rastafarian-coloured flag bearing the image of HIM Emperor Haile Selassie I.
Waving to the crowd, his cavalcade made two laps around the stadium's cycle track before he dismounted with a salute.
He graciously accepted his Gala honour flanked by Kenyatta, Holness, Grange, and Fayval Williams, Member of Parliament for St Andrew Eastern where Sizzla's Judgement Yard is located.
“On behalf of the whole entire nation…those who have been a part of my musical journey over the years; seeing such an award, it signifies that the works of His Majesty through the talent of Sizzla, building on the foundation of our ancestors and leaders in the reggae music, fighting for our people for redemption, repatriation…I'm honoured and thankful once again to receive such (an award),” he said, to rapturous cheers.
After collecting the citation, Sizzla walked towards the stage and belted out lyrics to the apt Rise To The Occasion. The Grammy-nominated artiste's set also included Holding Firm, Can't Keep A Good Man Down, Got To Be Strong, Just One of Those Days, and Black Woman and Child.
He exited as he came — doing several laps on motorcycle.
Prior to Sizzla's arrival, Judy Mowatt gave a tribute to Marley, the evening's other recipient. Mowatt was a member of the I-Threes with Marley and Marcia Griffiths — Bob Marley's harmony trio. Her ode to her wheelchair-bound colleague was fitting.
Thank You Lord, Black Woman, Many Are Called and the global anthem, One Love, were some of the selections from her songbook.
The celebrations, interspersed with fireworks, showcased the best of Jamaica in words, song, and dance. Tributes to Pan African leader Marcus Garvey; folklorist Louise “Miss Lou” Bennett Coverley; former Prime Minister Edward Seaga; and a special tribute to Kenya were part of the entertainment package.
Kenyatta, who arrived on Monday for a three-day visit, shared his thoughts on the gala with the Jamaica Observer.
“Let me say, there are very clear linkages on the manner in which this 57th celebration; you have managed to capture the essence of where the people of Jamaica came from and how they have evolved through all their struggles and be the nation that you are today, under your motto: one nation, one people. And to be taken through that journey, to me, is the most incredible thing,” Kenyatta said.
The evening's entertainment also included performances from Ashe; Loaded Eagle, the 2019 Festival Song winner; Joanna Walker, 2019 Gospel Song winner; gospel heavyweights Sister Patt, Minister Marion Hall and Kevin Downswell; and Beenie Man. Koffee pulled the curtains down on a delightful evening.

Six years on from VP records' The Story Unfolds, the idiosyncratic and mercurial Bobo sing-jay Sizzla Kalonji is well overdue another retrospective. And this nicely-presented effort by VP's new acquisition, Greensleeves, including a bonus DVD, gives each chapter of the chronicle a fair hearing, even if the odd key verse has inevitably been missed out.
Sizzla's received a lot of flak for perceived changes to his voice. The reality is he's never stopped changing it. From aggressive shouting to wolf-like howls and high pitched feline wails, he's taken his now ravaged pipes in every possible direction, cutting astonishing tunes over some of Jamaica's most iconic rhythm tracks.

These range from the ruminative (Just One Of Those Days on Bobby Digital's relick of John Holt's Queen Majesty) to the uplifting (Good Ways using Digital's version of Alton Ellis' classic Studio 1 piece, Breaking Up) to the heavily prophetic (Africa Prepare on Frenchie's re-interpretation of Lee Perry's Blackboard Jungle). We also hear evidence of his more recent interest in hip hop and R&B with Give Me A Try and Rise To The Occasion (for Donovan Bennett aka Don Corleon).

Of course, an overview of such an important artist is bound to solicit some grumbles, the most trenchant being that not enough time is devoted to Sizzla's early work, which set the standard for sing-jaying in the 90s. What's more, his mellower side predominates: for a taste of the shouty Sizzla check the raw, camera mic recorded footage on the DVD. However, it's understandable that a best of, aimed at a wide audience, would avoid anything too uncompromising on the ear, although the odd smattering of homophobia is on display.

There are a few glaring omissions, particularly Solid As A Rock – both the cut from his Da Real Thing album, or his equally worthy Damon Dash-produced remake - but all in all, this is a good summary of a career that has constantly flouted convention and expectation. The Journey is a sometimes jarring mix of reflection, belligerence, political incorrectness and religious fervour - just like Sizzla himself.
