“Africa Jamaica” was first recorded a day after the 60th GRAMMY, where their last studio album Avrakedabra was nominated for Best Reggae Album, Awards earlier on this year. The Iconic Reggae Super Group had paid a visit to their long-time friend and multi-GRAMMY Award winning super producer Jerry Wonda at Platinum Recording Studio in New York.
