Sizzla Kalonji Celebrates 32 years on earth


edit_sizzla_feature.jpgTemple Hall Estate is set to sizzle on April 19, 2008, as the Great House in Stony Hill will house a celebration called, "Rise To The Occasion," in honour of Sizzla Kalonji's 32nd 'earthstrong.'

With a year of over the top accomplishments, Sizzla Kalonji has a great deal to shout about. His historical Sly and Robbie produced collaboration with Paul McCartney of the Beatles, Lady Saw and Cherine Anderson, entitled, "Nod Your Head," is just one of many productions that sees Sizzla doubling up with stellar artists. Since April 2007, his collaborations have included a heavy mix with Lil' Wayne called, "Reasons," that also features rapper, T-Streets.

Sizzla, Shaggy and Collie Budz came together and released, "Mad Mad World," on top of other collaborations this year that included tracks recorded with Ini Kamozi as well as the most recent release with Tarrus Riley.

The 'earthhday man' is expected to be surrounded by hosts of his reggae music contemporaries like: Capleton, Bounty Killer, Beenieman, Spragga Benz, Anthony B, Queen Ifrika, Movado, Chuck Fenda, Tarrus Riley, Jah Cure, Luciano, Sanchez, Elephant Man, Sugar Mnnott, Vybz Kartel, Richie Spice, Busy Signal, Lady Saw, Etana, Erup, Junie Platinum, Voicemail, Gyptian, Turbulance, Assasin, Marcia Griffiths, Natural Black, Spice, Bascom X, Monster Empire, Lady G, Louie Culture, Thriller U and the L.U.S.T. Crew.

Reflecting Sizzla's glorious year of success, this earthstrong also follows other Koch/DDMG/Kalonji Records, "Overstanding" album as well as four others including "Children of Jah" with PNR Label, I-Space (Greensleeves), "Rastafari" (Penitentiary) and "Addicted" (LGN Entertainment).
