Reggae Music is a genre that transcends all borders and barriers with a fanbase made up of all races and ethnicities. Equally as diverse as the fanbase are the artists that perform the music, so it was only a matter of time before a white group would capture the most coveted award in the genre, the Reggae Grammy Award.

Soldiers Of Jah Army (SOJA) are the winners of 2022 Grammy Award for best reggae album with their title “Beauty in the Silence”.

The third time is the charm for SOJA as the group was nominated twice before but did not walk away as victors.

Five Jamaican were among the six nominees in the Best Reggae Album category. They were Spice, Etana, Sean Paul, Jesse Royal, Gramps Morgan and SOJA.

The fact that the only non-Jamaican in the list of nominees came out as the winner should be a wake-up call to Jamaicans. It has long been said that Jamaica has lost touch with authentic reggae music as younger artists are more drawn to the more lucrative hip hop and trap genres.

This is two years in a row that history was made in the Reggae Grammy category. Last year Koffee became the first solo female act to wing the Reggae Grammy.
