Tiken Jah has established himself as one of the figureheads of the reggae scene in the world. Fusing his infectious reggae beat with hard-hitting lyrics, Tiken Jah has become a spokesperson for an entire generation of music fans, speaking out on political and social issues through his music. He uses his Ivorian experience to call for unity within diversity in Africa and denounces the artificial division between ethnicities, groups and areas in Africa.
