Eight years after his USA visa and work permit were revoked, singjay Sizzla 'Kalonge' will make his long awaited return to a New York stage when he appears at the 23rd annual Irie Jam Radio anniversary celebration on Labor Day Sunday, September 4th 2016 at Roy Wilkins Park in Queens.


Since the news broke that US immigration authorities "fly the gate" for the reggae artiste to perform stateside again, there has been an exciting buzz especially from his fans in the New York tri-state area who are overjoyed.


Bobby Clarke, CEO and founder of Irie Jam Radio is no stranger to working with Sizzla. In fact in 1995, Clarke an his team introduced the then young, fiery artist to the New York area for his first perfomance as part of the late Phillip "Fattis" Burrell's Exterminator camp with Luciano as headliner. Ironically Sizzla's last major outdoor concert performance in NY was at Irie Jamboree 2008, an event that was co-produced by Irie Jam Radio. At the festival that year, moments before Sizzla's electrifying performance, large video screens replayed Olympic gold medal races by Usain 'Lighting' Bolt, Shelly-Ann Frazer and Melaine Walker as thousands in the diaspora celebrated Jamaica's historic performance at the Beijing Olympics.
