I am an African multimedia producer/artist living in Holland. When I came here more than ten years ago to study advanced news production using digital technology, some people asked me whether there were any other reggae kings in Africa besides Alpha Blondy? I told them that Africa has many reggae artists but the ‘King of African Reggae’ title is given to Alpha Blondy or Lucky Dube, depending on who you ask. This is my story about trying to realize my dream of becoming one of Africa’s biggest reggae sensations and media golden boy.
Every morning Emmanuel from Ghana has to walk one hour and thirty minutes. For what? To help to park cars in Valencia. If he is lucky he earns six euros that morning. With that money he is able to buy some food in the evening.
