by August 4th, 2017

Jamaica will pay tribute to Reggae icon Jimmy Cliff at the Grand Gala on Independence Day.

Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, Olivia Grange, said Jimmy Cliff will be honoured for his “tremendous contribution to the global success of Jamaican music.”

Along with the national salute at the Grand Gala, Jimmy Cliff will be presented with the Key to the City of Montego Bay.

The Culture Ministry’s decision to honour Dr. Jimmy Cliff comes after IRIE FM honoured the legendary entertainer in his hometown in Somerton, St. James in February this year.
