Internationally acclaimed Reggae artiste, Sizzla Kalonji, is close to a full recovery following a serious motor cycle accident last month. As a result, the singer is ready to return to the music scene.
Sizzla has been resting comfortably at home since the bike crash in Runaway Bay, St. Ann. The crash left the "Solid as a Rock" singer with multiple broken bones as well as a ruptured liver. He spent 10 days in a Kingston-based hospital, receiving treatment for his injuries before his release on September 4th.
In a statement issued by Sizzla on Thursday, he expressed his gratitude towards his loved ones, fans and the doctors who made his hospital stay worthwhile. Now the Judgement Yard singjay feels as if he’s back to full strength. "I am feeling very strong, healthy, and I am coming along well. Thanks to the Most High Jah Rastafari," Sizzla intimated.
However, Sizzla claimed that he has been advertised for a variety of upcoming stage shows that he has yet to agree to. The singer explained that he has not authorized any winter tours or performances overseas since 2009, his most recent tour. Additionally, he has warned his fans not to be fooled by the rogue promoters, potentially scheming to scam money from them for these advertised shows.
On the other hand, Sizzla is planning to mark his return within the Reggae industry by unveiling two new videos for singles from his 65th studio album, The Scriptures. Many singles have been released from the album since its June release such as "Love Jah & Live, "Believe In Yourself" and his most recent single, "Cleanse My Soul." The latter two singles were recently released via iTunes outlets in France and Japan.
Meanwhile, Sizzla is focused on building the Sizzla Youth Foundation; an initiative aimed at providing youth programs, activities as well support in Jamaican communities that contribute to its growth, development, and unity. Sizzla’s Youth Foundation is currently asking for financial sponsorship with regards to a Rites of Passage program for boys and girls 13-18 from private and public donors. Additionally, Sizzla will be travelling to Africa to attend to projects in Ghana and Zimbabwe respectively.
