How would you rate reggae music in Kenya ?
What do you think is making reggae music more popular in uptown night clubs where as
reggae is associated mostly with people from the ghetto
First and foremost we should change that stereotype that reggae music is for the ghetto
people because that mentality is false.Reggae music promotes love,peace and teachings
.So the main reason it is being appreciated everywhere it is because it makes sense once
you start listening to the lyrics not just dancing to the beat.
