Kwa-Thema – Reggae is Bigger than Music will hold a Roots Reggae visual music concert on the big screen at Kwa-Thema Hall on Saturday.
The concert aims to celebrate the coronation of the Rastafarian king of kings Haile Selassie, who was Emperor of Ethiopia from 1930.
Ras Daddah Ayoba, the movement’s reggae music promoter, said: “It’s about bringing the Rasta community together to celebrate Jah who was brought to power on November 2, 1930.”
Ras Daddah Ayoba said this would give people a chance to interact with each other while enjoying music on the big screen and other live performances.

One of the movement’s founders, Selektah Jah Yut SA, said that although their religion requires people to wear their royal regalia, everyone is welcome and can wear whatever they feel comfortable in.
Selektah said all they need from those who will be present is respect and good manners.
Street vendors are allowed to have stalls for free on this day, but the sale of alcohol is not permitted.
Tickets will be sold at the door from 12:00 p.m. and the event will start from 3:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Sunday.
