Kabaka Pyramid holding his first Grammy award was a pleasure to see followed by a great thank you speech.
Winning the Best Reggae Album category for The Kalling was a tribute to his hard work and collaboration with others. Aware of his time limitations thanked his parents, Marcia and Kiplin Salmon, his management team, his publicist, those who worked on his winning album, and ended his speech by dedicating his Grammy to the late Jo Mersa Marley, the 31-year-old son of Stephen Marley.
Back in September 2022 Reggae Revellers referenced The Kalling by saying “Kabaka Pyramid Plans To Shake Up The Place With Kalling” little did we know at the time it would be a Grammy Winner but the tracks spoke for themselves.
Kabaka, who has been observing the onslaught of violence and iniquity at all levels, believes that “the place definitely need a shaking up”.
“Too much distraction a gwaan and I feel like the music a tek a turn,” he said sombrely, adding that this is why songs like The Kalling become important. “We need music that is putting out the frequency and the vibration to uplift the youth. Imagine … artiste a talk bout popping molly inna dem song. There is nothing wrong with enjoying life, but yuh can’t get careless with it,” Kabaka stated.
