I-Negus Radio Contact : Cos Wadadda
I-Negus Radio is a music station established in honour and thanksgiving to the King of Kings, Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, Emperor Haile Selassie I & Jamaica’s most eminent prophet Marcus Garvey. This Station is Livicated to the preservation of the conscious culture of Jamaica and all good Roots Reggae.
The playlist maintains a constant stream of Roots messages and classical entertaining melodies from our multitude of traditional Artists and Players of Instruments including current artistes and producers. Interspersed are interviews and narratives that convey a spiritual or upliftment call. Cultural and spiritual messages have no time limit, their essence is eternal. I-Negus Radio is here to preserve the ‘feel’ of classical conscious Reggae and to promote the cultural development of the people. All reggae internationally has it’s origins in this indigenous culture of Jamaica.
We acknowledge the Hon. Minister of Culture Olivia ‘Babsy’ Grange who was successful in 2018 in negotiating UNESCO’s acceptance of Reggae as a protected Cultural Heritage now added to it’s list of over 300 practices and expressions of ‘Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity’ ! This music that started in a so-called under-privileged area in Western Kingston Jamaica is now the recognised soundtrack for an evolving “international discourse on issues of injustice, resistance, love and humanity”. Bunny Wailer stated in an interview decades ago that there was something in this music when they were creating it that said to them that this music would have to be accepted world-wide. Prophecy is fulfilled and still fulfilling in the wider sense !
I-Negus Radio is an evolution of I works as a radio presenter involving BBC 3 Counties, Omega Radio and Majestic Radio. The I-Negus playlist is a continuation of the sharing of some of the most inspiring tunes. Tune in randomly as the vibe holds you or tune in and hold ah meds fe a while. Tune in whilst working or with the right tech’ you may tune in, in your car. Large thanks to the Brethren and Sistren in our community whom have contributed to, or supported the establishment of I-Negus Radio!
One Cultural Love ~ Jah Live!
