Reggae Jam Festival goes to London for its new UK 2022 Edition

Big news from famous Reggae Jam Festival out of Germany: Reggae Jam goes to London this August for the first time. From the Rivers of Bersenbrück (Germany) to the Heart and Soul of UK’s Reggae scene, one of the most popular reggae festivals in Europe is finally coming to London. Since 1994, the superstars of reggae have been doing the honours and filling the sacred walls of the monastery garden in the small northern German town with Caribbean “joie de vivre”.
For the first time in its 28-year history, Reggae Jam is celebrating its out-of-town premiere – and not just anywhere, but in the London borough of Brent, the nucleus of Jamaican vibes. Bob Marley lived in this multicultural melting pot in the 70s. From Brent, stars made in Britain like Dennis Brown, Gregory Isaacs or Gappy Ranks carried reggae from here into the worldwide panorama.

Interview with Govana: “Don’t follow the crowd or even watch the hype, just be the best version of yourself”

The Gege Vibes Team met Govana in London on the eve of his last UK Tour, which happened a few weeks ago, featuring new artist Skeng.
The Jamaican entertainer told us about his learning process through the artistic transition from Deablo to Govana. He also underlined how much he likes to stay in his own lane, minding his own business without following the crowds, the hype or the trends. Govi suggested to his fans to be just the best version of yourself being in a confident and positive attitude because the Universe is listening to our wishes, so dreams could be possible if we totally believe in it. We can get everything through the law of attraction. We also discussed the style and the topics in his music: from the storytelling to the freestyle, from the inspirational messages to the street writing and dancing tunes for the ladies. Govana shows the audience he could be a versatile singer, talking about good and bad things in his lyrics at the same time, just like it is reality. Govana didn’t hide his main inspirations, musically speaking, mentioning elders like Sizzla Kalonji, Vybz Kartel, Bounty Killah, Aidonia, Agent Sasco, Beenie Man and more. Govana concluded the interview by mentioning the attachment he has for his community in Jamaica: Spanish Town. His place of origin is beautiful, but it’s also a poor and full of crimes area. That’s why he did several charitable projects at his birthplace alongside other popular reggae stars like Chronixx, Koffee and many more. Artist said that he truly wants for the youths in his community to fulfill their potentials and to have a better future, away from the World of Criminality. We ended up our chat talking about his last single “I am” produced by Dunwell with a very motivational and uplifting meaning for young people.
