Conquerors Reggae Band Celebrates The Power of Reggae Music and Culture On The 1st Of July #IRD2023.

"International Reggae Day“was founded in Jamaica in 1994 by Andrea Davis, who was inspired during Mama Winnie's visit to Jamaica, when she spoke about the impact of Jamaican Reggae and what the music and message meant to the freedom fighters in South Africa. #IRD2023 spotlights the rich heritage and diversity of Dancehall and its profound influence on global culture. Hosted by The Conquerors Reggae Band and CannaKulture the day will be filled with music, food, stalls, and good 420-friendly vibes.

The Conquerors Reggae Band is all about roots Reggae and promoting a positive message through their music. Their main objective is to contribute to nation-building and social cohesion and spread universal love while making you skank to the groovy rhythms of their original music. Their ultimate goal, becoming international reggae ambassadors from South Africa.

Performing regularly at Cape Town Reggae festivals such as the Annual Paarl Rasta Cultural Festival, Monwabisi Reggae Legends Sunsplash, and Cape Town Reggae Sunsplash. The Conquerors has become a household name in the CPT reggae fraternity. Starting in 2009, the band is growing from strength to strength and continues to push the message of one love, peace, and unity through their original roots’ reggae music.

Ghetto Warriors: Ghetto Warriors is a dancehall/reggae group from Kraaifontein, Cape Town. Consisting of 3 members, Rudy-D, Prophet, and Big Voice. 2 of the members are actual brothers and the third is "as close as family can be". 

The group was formed in 2009 in Wallacedene drawing inspiration from their musical parents as all 3 members have grown up with parents in the music business. This would also inspire the group to later brand their studio as Musical Youth Records Studios to pay tribute to the parent’s band Musical Youth Band (CPT). Starting as just a Performing artist without a recorded song the group would go on for 5years doing only live shows due to not having a recording space and would end up becoming one of Cape Town’s most popular Dancehall group. During those 5years the group was also noted/recognised as the first Cape Town Dancehall group.
