Papa Biggy

CT: Foundation artiste Papa Biggy has been singled out for an "Award of Appreciation" at the upcoming Black Royalty African Heritage Expo which will be held on Saturday, March 10 at Fatima Hall, 20171 Baldwin Street, Waterbury, Connecticut.

With songs such as How You Plant Corn, Careless Fearless, Your Dreams and his latest recording, the inspirational "Walk With God" and "Not One More," Papa Biggy has been spreading messages of love since launching his career back in the 1980's.

“Biggy is an artiste I have had a deep respect for. He is different in that his songs speaks about truths and rights and upliftment and he has a passion for social change,” Napoleon White, of Tommy Promotions said.

The singer born Courtney Porteous was ecstatic when he got the news that he would be honored. 

"I am very touched by the recognition. I give God thanks" he said.

The DJ said the award comes at a very important time in his career.

"I have always had a passion for change and to see my people living in love. To see them put away the foolishness and unite. It breaks my heart to see how as a people we have become so vile which is why I am pushing songs that can bring about a different mindset. If every artiste makes this their moral responsibility then I believe things can turn around,” he shared.

Speaking of a mindset, Papa Biggy revealed that he has undergone one in his own life as he has now embraced Christ as his Lord and Saviour.

“I have been through so much in my life. My fans don’t even know half of the challenges I have had to deal with. In that moment when you feel physical strength-sapping, it is great to know you have someone you can turn to who can replenish and strengthen you" he said of his new found faith.

From his early days Biggy has had a healthy respect for God, but never commit until now. It is for that reason he has never recorded x-rated songs.

“I think there is a call on my life to share God’s love, but for now I am going to new convert classes and learning all I can. I am also in the studio recording new songs,” he said. The conscious singer also shared that he has no plans to discontinue performing or recording the songs he has been known for.

“The message still stands, I am about love and consciousness.”

He said he is looking forward to reconnecting with Mutabaruka, an artiste he has a huge respect for. Mutabaruka will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award for his work in the industry.

Also set to be recognized with 'Community Service Awards' are State Legislator of the 75th District of Connecticut, Geraldo Reyes; City of Waterbury Administrator Jahana Hayes; ArnalAjallum of the Waterbury Cricket Club and John Murray, Publisher/editor of the Waterbury Observer. They will be honored for their demonstrated commitment to leadership, cultural diversity, and citizenship in their community. Receiving 'Appreciation Awards' are Terrance Saunders, Michael Anderson, Rouel-Christie Gabre, and Koleurz.
