Personally, I am a very big fan of reggae. From when I was a baby, I have heard reggae music and now I have found interest. Coming from a Caribbean background has led me to reggae but was not forced to love it. The reasons I like reggae is because reggae gives out a peaceful motion and vibe. When listening to reggae, I automatically feel calm and comfortable. My favourite type of genres: Dub and reggae. I listen to reggae artists such as Sizzla, Bob marley, Bunny Wailer, Winston Rodney, Buju Banton, Jah Cure and many many more.

My contribution from listening to reggae has proved to me that music is not just to dance or sing to, it is also a way of bringing out your personality and also helping you physically whether you are feeling down or even gaining advice by listening to the words carefully.
