Not to be negative here, but I am not a fan of Makeda. Even though she has been very influential in bringing reggae to my 2nd home of San Diego and So. Cal, I feel as though she is a racist person. Every time I've seen her Emcee (she's a terrible Emcee), including at SNWMF and Legends, she always goes on some thinly veiled rant and everyone around me says stuff like, "What the hell is she talking about" & "Wow, this lady is a total racist". This has been the case for decades, and she just sounds reggae. A person with her influence should be showing love, peace, unity. I recall her kind of talking about The Lions when they played solo and backup at SNWMF (in 2009 I believe), kind of talking @#$%& about them all being white (which is not true). Their lead singer is Alex Desert, who is in the movie Swingers. She must have missed that part. I roll my eyes when she comes out almost screaming and killing the vibe. My $0.02

jcom - That's all news to me and is sad to hear if true. I've never found Makeda to be racist, EVER, and actually think she does an okay job as an emcee. Call me crazy but I've seen her host Tribute to Legends for over 15 years, since it was Bob Fest, and she always promotes love and unity on stage. Maybe I missed something or haven't been privy to her private conversations but just wanted share my two cents as well.

I've seen her enough to feel confident about my post and many of my friends and people I've met while she is doing 'her thing' feel the same. I'm not a hater...I just tell it how I see it. She seems like she has a lot of deep seeded anger.

"I've seen her enough to feel confident about my post and many of my friends and people I've met while she is doing 'her thing' feel the same. I'm not a hater...I just tell it how I see it. She seems like she has a lot of deep seeded anger." This is a dynamic I've seen more than once, which may be called Biting The Hand That Listens To You And Pays The Freight.

For certain artists who are black, it must be a bit of that old 'existential dilemma' to identify and come from a black music tradition, while realizing that a majority(make that often a vast majority) of one's audience is not black. A dynamic I've noticed for nearly 50 years, beginning with noticing the behavior and comments by black jazz musicians whose audience(especially in avant-guard circles) is almost entirely white.

Human nature, human nature....
