Sativa accepting his award
For a second consecutive year Charmb Production roots reggae recording artist Sativa D Black 1 and Manager, Charmaine Bailey-Smith have been awarded at the Youth In Progress Awards show in Canada receiving, an International Awards of Merit and, Excellence In Music Award respectively.  

Sativa D Black 1 was invited to perform live ahead of receiving his award and did a good job at entertaining the Canadians. Sativa's grand entry on stage always set the tone for an interesting performance. Hopping across the stage, Sativa opened his set singing Boardhouse and Zinc Fence to the delight of the audience some of whom sang along with him word for word. In a quick pause between track Sativa told the audience, "anywhere mi guh, mi entertain, mi educate that's the way I live.." he said.

The St. Catherine born Jamaican performer Sativa D Black 1 went on to sing his popular Petty Thief song which drew another hyped applause  and a few other tracks before exiting stage but not before explaining his short set to the audience,  "wul heap a other artists dey yah so mi nah stay long....caz mi waan go siddung and have mi drink and tek in di other artists dem."  A fan of his own fans Sativa D Black 1 shared his journey to Canada live on Facebook. He also met with Canadian Reggae artist Exco Levi for a chit-chat. 

Sativa D Black 1 recently released a single featuring Dancehall artist Iyara called "Hard Ears" on the Charmb Production label. Recently at the Marcus Garvey celebration in Ocho Rios hosted by reggae radio Irie FM, both Sativa D Black 1 and Iyara received huge encores when they performed the track from a crowd obviously excited to see Sativa perform. "Hard Ears" is a mind-blogging song that mimics the subconscious thoughts of an incarcerated person's message to his mother after committing a crime. 'Hard Ears' is out now on all digital platform.
