As a Sussex girl, Joss grew with Jamaican music in the mix. We grew with American music and copied them for decades, so why can’t she sing reggae? Last week our media pandered to xenophobia, and racism — “Joss is white, how could she have won the reggae prize?”

Most reggae does not cross over but is stuck in depressing, rag-tag of misogyny, homophobia, prejudice, and ganja stupor — it does not sell.
