From a child prodigy to the elevation of the Crown Prince of Reggae, Dennis Emanuel Brown undoubtedly developed a commanding and durable sound that made him one of Jamaica‘s most popular artistes of all times. Monday marked the 53rd birthday of this amazing singer who was born on February 1, 1959, and made his journey to the ‘Promised Land’, 11 years ago on July 1, 1999, at 40 years of age.

He was the lead singer, songwriter and guitarist for the ska, rocksteady and reggae bands The Wailers (1964–1974) and Bob Marley & The Wailers (1974–1981).
