Also known as Sizzla Kalonji is one of the most commercially and critically successful contemporary reggae artists, his influence on the community is simply earth-shattering, a real King, teacher and legend.
Born as Miguel Orlando Collins on 17 April 1976 in Kingston, Jamaica to to devout Rasta parents he is subscribed to the Bobo Ashanti Mansion of Rastafari. He started his recording career in 1995 and release until now over 56 albums and is one of the leading voices in steering the movement to a re-embracement of Rastafarian values. His music promotes spirituality and social consciousness and explores themes as Babylon's corrupting influence, the disenfranchisement of the poor ghetto youth and oppression of the black nation.
Sizzla established the Judgement Yard community centre in August Town, Kingston, Jamaica which also homes his record studio and record label "Kalonji Records". He is a huge influence and is responsible for many youths in the community which seek assistance and guidance in life as well as music.
In 2010 he performed at the 86th birthday celebration of former Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe. During his perfomance the local police brutalised fans, causing Sizzla to halt his show and ask the police to cease the beatings. A Farm was given to him by the local people in appreciation for his performance while stating to eventually make Zimbabwe his permanent home.
