REGCO 2021, joins Reggae and Black History Month celebrations with live and recorded interviews with artists, DJ’s, digital promoters and Radio Hosts from Jamaica, UK, Ghana, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, South Sudan and Japan. Key partners included Gregory Isaacs Foundation, UK, Europe & Africa and Hermitage Citizens Association, Kingston, Jamaica.
Asif Ahmad, CMG, British High Commissioner to Jamaica, has kindly agreed to say a few words, following a request from Dean Roden, representing Hermitage Citizens Association for the launch of “Reggae Hermitage” on Saturday 6th February.
The recent success of KINGSTON7 BEATZ weekly programmes on FRESHFM RADIO LONDON in collaboration with Uptown Link Up, Studio 99, HRS Productions and Kingston Radio has proven the effectiveness of a cluster approach across the creative & cultural industries for the benefit of all stakeholders. Diaspora collaboration for Community Economic Tourism is critical for the recovery and transformation of local communities and neighbourhoods such as Hermitage, Kingston 7, Jamaica.
Rudi Page, Director of FRESHFM RADIO LONDON and CEO of MCW, stated, “We are delighted that the Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport in collaboration with their partners, the Ministry of Tourism have endorsed and included REGCO 2021 in their Reggae Month Celebrations. This is designed to highlight and celebrate reggae’s global impact and influence. Thank you is extended to the Commissioner Alexandra Davis from the City of Miramar in Florida, USA for supporting this community development programme.”
