“Thanks for the outpouring of messages. Soon get to each one!.”

Fans of Kabaka would have already known that ‘The Kalling’ was a little bit special since it dropped last year.

With the production of the project overseen by Damian ”Junior Gong” Marley, there was a quiet confidence in the Kabaka team that this project would have an indelible impact.

Hailing Damian’s influence when the album dropped, Kabaka said: “@damianmarley the mastermind on production right through the album! Truly an honour to work with this legend. Can’t wait to share these sounds with the world.”
