Jamaican Music - Where It Really Started

by Lavern


Hello and good day


I've been reading your articles on Jamaica independence and another article, Jamaica's Sweet Reggae Music - 'The Music of the Soul.'

The article states,

"Many thanks to the stalwarts - past and present, who helped to create this distinctive product that is now internationally acclaimed.

Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff and Prince Buster are notable contributors to Reggae's popularity and success. Of course, Bob Marley became our best known ambassador on Reggae music."

I've read both articles and noticed that when mentioning the artists who have contributed, Derrick Morgan was not mentioned as one of the main contributors of Reggae Ska, Lovers Rock, and many more.


  • Derrick Morgan once had seven songs on the Top 10 Chart, from 1-7.
  • He is the first to write the first independence song for Jamaica, Forward March. Why isn't a full research done before writing these articles?

  • Derrick Morgan was the first person to put Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff, Prince Buster and many more out there and yet he gets no recognition.


If you need information on the real and true way to define Reggae music, give me a call and I will get you the man himself, Derrick Morgan. He is not dead, he can tell you from beginning to end and these are true words. Many know but won't give that recognition to him.

You can email me at lavielav03@yahoo.com. Thank you for your time, hope to hear from you soon.

Editor's Note
Hi Lavern, thanks million for the feedback. Derrick Morgan has contributed a lot to the development of Jamaica's music and probably more than deserving of at least a mention. The article, I believe never, intended to highlight all contributions, but rather, some of the notable, recognizable actors.

That said, point is well taken, I'll have the team review.
In the meantime, I'll grab the opportunity to invite my readers to learn more about the great Derrick Morgan by reading his biography on Wikipedia via this link.

Thanks again Lavern.

Regards,
WG.
