Sizzla Kalonji is recovering well and almost ready to return to the music scene since his accident. A number of promoters have been advertising shows overseas, however, Sizzla has not authorized any winter tour or shows overseas since his last tour in 2009. Sizzla is requesting that fake promoters should not be tricking the fans with false promotions of upcoming tours or shows.
The road to recovery has been speedy and Sizzla would like to thank all the doctors, nurses, and other medical staff that have assisted in his healing. Collins was hit by a vehicle overtaking a bus, while riding a motorcycle in Run Away Bay in August. As a result he had to spend almost two weeks in UHWI after being airlifted from St. Ann’s Bay Hospital in serious but stable condition to Kingston. It was a hit and run.
The daily visits at the hospital by his family, friends, industry comrades, and fans helped to motivate his spirit and build his morale. Sizzla says “I am feeling very strong, healthy, and I am coming along well. Thanks to the Most High Jah Rastafari.”
A number of things are in the making. A beautiful ladies album has been released under Kalonji Music and VP Records called Welcome To The Good Life. It comprises of 12 tracks including Come On, Good Life, and Hush featuring Kim Davis which was a favorite of many disc jocks on New York’s Hot 97 station. Sizzla says “It’s an urban album yet rootsy and I found it fitting for the ladies,” as he describes the album.
There will be upcoming video shoots for two singles off his 65th album Scriptures released under John John Records and Zojak World Wide. Currently the album is the 2nd biggest seller on ebreggae.com for the past month; 13th the past week; 6th this year. Cleanse My Soul featured on iTunes France and Japan on October 11th.
A number of singles have been released by several producers including Love Jah & Live which is creating a buzz on the streets and has become an anthem for a many young Sizzla fans. It appears on the Jinx Riddim and is currently on several charts including FIWI charts. Songs that have been released on iTunes are Cleanse My Soul, Jah Is With Me, Believe In Yourself to name a few.
Sizzla has been planning the direction of Sizzla Youth Foundation whose aim is to provide positive youth programs, activities, and support in Jamaican communities that contribute to its growth, development, and unity. Sizzla Youth Foundation needs financial support for a Rites of Passage program for boys and girls 13-18 from private and public donors to help fund the work.
