It was really a shame last year when the Dennis Brown Memorial concert on the Kingston waterfront had to be cancelled because there were not enough sponsors for the event. Even as there were an abundance of galas and celebrations for Bob Marley, no one in corporate Jamaica stepped up to give the late prince of reggae his deserved respect.

While it was shocking last year that this could happen in Jamaica, it is totally understandable now. Considering that corporate Jamaica is controlled by the upper class and Usain Bolt’s recent revelations of how he has been treated by the upped class, it is totally understandable why they would support Bob Marley’s celebrations but not Dennis Brown’s.

Thankfully, this year the Dennis Brown Memorial concert will be on again, with or without corporate Jamaica or support from the upper class.

The concert will take place February 21 on the Kingston Waterfront. The celebration will be part of Reggae month.

During his prolific career, which began in the late 1960s when he was aged eleven, he recorded more than 75 albums and was one of the major stars of lovers rock, a sub-genre of reggae. Bob Marley cited Brown as his favorite singer, dubbing him “The Crown Prince of Reggae”, and Brown would prove influential on future generations of reggae singers
