No, Jamaican reggae is not the only good reggae ! Of course, Made in France reggae is “in” but have you ever listened to Tiken Jah Fakoly’s albums ? Twenty years after Alpha Blondy, this Ivorian renewed the genre with lyrics denouncing abuses of power and the daily hardships of life (Mangercratie came out in 1997). As for rap music, does the future of reggae will lie in Africa ?
