Yaawd Media’s objective is to continue to solidify its reputation as a repository of Jamaican cultural information particularly the island’s music. It is this objective that drove the eventual creation of its program Richie Blackford’s Sunday Scoops.
Prince Buster is without question the undisputed King of the Ska beat in Jamaican Music. From sound system operator to record producer, Prince Buster was there at the beginning in the late 1950s through to the development of the now dominant Reggae beat in the 1969/1970 period.
Sultan Ali (the son of Prince Buster) has been carrying his father’s torch for the last 30 years under the moniker “The Sultan of Ska” SonofPrinceBuster. Sultan Ali will be the special guest on www.yaawdmedia.com’s Sunday Scoops program on Sunday, March 21, 2021 at 2:00 pm where he will tell “The Prince Buster” story.
This edition of Sunday Scoops hosted by Yaawd Media Inc founder and CEO Richard Hugh Blackford promises a not to be missed event for Jamaicans, lovers of Jamaican music, and lovers of Jamaican music history as “The Sultan of Ska” spends an afternoon telling the story of Prince Buster, “The King of Ska.”
“Yaawdmedia is about addressing and correcting all of the misconceptions being presented as historical facts in Jamaican music. Our job is to get the facts from the mouths of those who were there making the music.”
