"Sizzla Kalonji" one of the most controversial dancehall and reggae artiste in the business today.
Birth name Miguel Orlando Collins on April 17, 1976 in St. Mary Jamaica.
A die hearted Rastafarian and also a member of the Bobo Shanti Rastafarian movement. At a tender age, he migrate to August Town in Kingston. He was educated at Dunoon High School where he studied mechanical engineering.
Like all or most artiste entry into the dancehall and reggae industry was not a bed of roses. He started out working on a sound system and was not able to record his first single until 1995 on the "Zagalou Label".
He was then introduced to veteran producers "Bobby Digital"
and he "Bobby" was instrumental in propelling Miguel's career. This led
to him going on tours regularly with artiste such as Luciano and
To date in Jamaica if you should asked anyone from the young at heart to Christians about Sizzla Kalonji, they will readily identify him with the hit single "Black Woman and Child" which is from the album with the same title and is regarded as one of his biggest single.
Locally and Internationally he is one of the most sought after artiste in the business. This stalwart has done work with "VP Records", "Greensleeves" and "Zagalou Label", but he is now working with his own label "Kalonji Records".
After building his state of the art recording studio in August Town at 42 August Town Rd in Kingston/St. Andrewv, he is now an icon in the community because of the contributions that he has made and the worked done with the youngsters in the area.
Kalonji always in the news from been pick up by law enforcement officers for questioning with crimes in the area of which he is never being charge or found guilty to the ongoing issue with the "Gay rights movement".
He was banned from performing in Europe, Canada and United states because of lyrics in some of his song against "Homosexuals".
after all this he recorded "Nah Apologize" which clearly states that
he don't care what they are saying he is still living by his words, this
single is still a major hit in the
dancehall and clubs today.
Sizzla Kalonji is not only an artiste or Producer, he currently has a clothing line and a magazine titled "The Black Magazine" which I think will be successful.
Truly an Icon in the dancehall and reggae music industry, he has released more than 45 albums and he still remains "Solid As A Rock".
