Encore For Sophia Squire at Reggae Jam Festival in Germany

Sophia Squire interview with Reggaevile
It's been a while but the long anticipated performance by Sophia Squire in Europe materialized somewhat when she appeared recently, on the three (3) day Reggae Jam festival stage in Germany. A highly motivated and driven Sophia Squire finally met fans who have been consistent with their inquiry on social media of any upcoming appearance in Europe over the past two years. From the reception she got, those who turn out to see her were not disappointed.

A veteran at performing live having learnt from the late Gregory Isaacs whom she worked along-side in her formative years as back-ground vocalist, the Jamaican reggae songbird comfortably delivered her 45 minutes set to a very appreciative audience.  She received an encore and chants of "more squire, more squire" from her audience after completing her full set and was invited back on stage. Again, the "Love Don't Hurt" singer mesmerized her audience performing "Gimmi Your Love" as the crowd cheerily sang "ah ah ah ah ah come gimmi your love" with her. "It was a wonderful experience" she told NIPnews, "I felt comfortable, the energy was right so I guess the audience felt it too" she concluded.

Song like "Love Like Rain", "Nature's Calling", "Love Don't Hurt" and "Come Gimmi Your Love," as well as new track "Find A Way" off an upcoming EP produced by Bredroc/Gully Bank Music labels.

Emancipation Day Jamaica

"Yes it's a conscious time now and people must come together with inity (unity). You know what? everyone have the answer ...you don't fool yourself everyone knows what can bring this inity (unity)..people don't mek dem fool you" Bob Marley.

As Jamaica observe Emancipation Day, a day of reflection, we are reminded by those before us how important it is to "emancipate ourselves from mental slavery" and so, today let us look within ourselves, women, mothers, daughters and sisters we have a roll to play in the society, we have a responsibility to mold and shape our children and their children. Let us play our part ensuring we protect the minds of our kids, teach them that which they are not taught that is important to their history. 

Reggae music helps us stay in touch with our history....
