Reggae singer Inkline is slated to embark on a tour of Ghana in August of this year.

"I am looking forward to going to Africa specifically Ghana this summer because it will represent a major pilgrimage for me as a Rasta because that is where it all started, that is where our ancestors were displaced from, and going back to Africa will be like going back home," Inkline said. 

August 2019 will make it 400 years since the commencement of the African slave trade to North America. Inkline is expected to do at least three shows in the town of Accra.

The singer is ramping up the promotion of his latest single, 'Jah Blessing' with the release of a video.

"The 'Jah Blessing' song is getting traction among local mixtape selectors, and we have begun to approach the radio disc jockeys who love the project. Things are looking great, the video is now playing on RE and HYPE TV," he said. 

Inkline has forged a new partnership with Coconut Juice Productions, the executive producer of his upcoming 'Free Yourself' EP. He has completed several songs for the project including 'Tek It Easy', the above-mentioned 'Jah Blessing' and 'Free Yourself'.

The songs, released on the Coconut Juice Productions label, was made available digitally on all major music platforms in April.

Born Kenroy Shakes, Inkline spent his early years in Haddo in Westmoreland, where he attended Knockalva Technical High in Hanover before migrating to Spanish Town during his early twenties.

He is known for his crisp searing vocals and he shows off his incredible range on his latest release, 'Jah Blessing', and his anti-violence anthem, 'Take it Easy'.

During his teenage years, Inkline began to develop a fascination with the sounds of reggae, roots and cultural music. He worked hard at his craft and crafted his unique sound.

The artiste's crisp clear vocals on his debut EP, 'Motivation' in 2015 with singles such as 'Mama We Coming', 'No Ebola', and ‘Motivation’ earned him the respect of his music peers and music insiders.
