Robert Onyango (General Onyx) / Kenya


“One love, one heart let’s get together and feel all right…” Jamaican reggae legend Bob Marley preached peace to the world. Closer home, an artiste is out to prove that, contrary to popular belief, reggae is not about violence, smoking bhang (weed) and other acts of hooliganism. Robert Onyango (General Onyx) of Ivolution Band is reaching out to Kenyans with a message of peace and love.

His hit song Niko Poa (I am okay) from the album Rise and Shine continues to enjoy considerable airplay on radio stations for its message of peace and togetherness. General Onyx urges Kenyans to come out stronger from the challenge, love and forgive each other especially in light of the atrocities of the post-election violence.

“Reggae is like religion. It has a spiritual appeal that attracts fans across the board than any other genre of music. This makes it easier to get the message of peace across to a wider audience, especially the youth. We reach out to our fans and upcoming artistes in the slums with messages of hope and inspiration,” says the musician who curtain raised at Splash on Friday in a peace concert by Jamaican reggae crooner Luciano. By Tony Ndolo
