Artist made new album because he “Hearts B.Z.E.”

A new CD is hitting the stands and it’s all Belizean. Jah from the musical group Plagga, known for the track ABC Man is here in the country to perform at the Sound Fest tonight at Bird’s Isle. The Belizean artist is also in the Jewel to promote two albums. His solo album is called “I Heart B.Z.E.”, and his group album called “True Belizean”. But his return to Belize is nostalgic as it has been fourteen years since he left the Jewel to pursue his music career.


Jamaal “Jah” Smith, Artist

“My solo album entitled, I heart B.Z.E., I love Belize; basically all the songs directed to Belize. The album caters to Belize and if you are not Belizean, you really noh wah have as much appreciate for the album because it is directed to the Belizean people. It’s about all the things weh I gone through while I mi live dah Belize. Songs like hot tamales, tea dinner tea, ABC, I miss Belize.”
