How important is reggae to Africa? And why is it so popular?
Reggae has its roots in ancient African musical forms and since its appearance in Jamaica in the late 1960’s singers have constantly paid tribute to Africa.

African reggae has a history of carrying strong messages on social, cultural, spiritual and political issues in society. But does it have any effect?

This exhibition of paintings ‘Nobody can Stop Reggae’ by Oliver Okoth Martin is inspired by reggae music and while paying homage to the Reggae month of February provokes thought to reflect on the meaning of reggae to our own society.
