Italy-born Nigerian singer, Winning Jah, has said that despite what some people may think, reggae is not dead.

He said the genre of music was still very much alive in the hearts of those who love it.

Though you may say it’s not as popular as it used to be but that’s just for now, reggae still has a bright future,” the singer told Saturday Beats.

Wining Jah, who recently celebrated his 46th birthday for over 100 hours stated that he did that to rejoice with his fans and break a world record.

He added, “I have lots of fans all over the world and they love me so much. My birthday was an opportunity for us to come together and have a good time. I got so much love from all over the continent and I was, indeed overwhelmed.

“Also, the Guinness World Record holder for the longest birthday is Paul Morgan of Hawaii (USA) and I want to surpass his feat,” he said.

Winning Jah, who recently received two APCN Humanitarian awards for ‘Best Charitable Singer of the Year’ and ‘Best Nigerian Reggae act of the Year’ said his consistency was the reason for his long stay in the industry.

“I am very passionate about reggae and that is why I give it my all. It is because of the conscious music I make that my song, ‘Deep Sea’ was nominated for an Amnesty International Italy music ‘Voice for Freedom’ award.
