Mightyful13 Records signs Reggae Group Black Uhuru


New York-based music company Mightyful13 Records will now act as an agent for international Grammy-winning reggae group, Black Uhuru.


The label, owned and operated by a Jamaican, Fitzroy Francis, was appointed as the group's sole representative in the USA by their founder and lead man Derrick 'Ducky Gong' Simpson.

In its capacity, the two-year-old record label will oversee the group's bookings, tours, and road management. The deal was done at the beginning of the year.

The signing, according to Francis - a former Kingston College man - has a lot of sentimental attachment to it, given that Simpson has been a musical mentor to him since he began to take an interest in music back in the late 1980s.

Francis, recently awarded Producer of the Year by the Clinton Lindsay-run New York Foundation Radio Network, said he sees the association as necessary and is intent on capitalising on this "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity".

"This is an important and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Mightyful13 Records as a new record label coming up in the music business. Black Uhuru has been an iconic group in reggae music for many years now. so it is a privilege to be its representative (USA) on a musical platform," said an elated Francis.

Black Uhuru, formed 1972 in Waterhouse, St Andrew, won the first reggae Grammy in 1985 for the Best Reggae Album with album Anthem. They are also the only Caribbean artiste/group to have won the Diamond Award of Excellence in music.
