Tippa Irie and Jacanda Books Present: Stick to My Roots
Come celebrate the much-anticipated autobiography from the legendary reggae artist Tippa Irie!
Join Jacanda Books and Camden Council for an unmissable conversation with Irie and radio presenter and media personality, Charlene Francoise, in Pancras Square Library on 1 November from 6pm to 8pm.
The autobiography of Tippa Irie, Stick To My Roots, tells the reggae musician's incredible story — from his trailblazing beginnings in Saxon Sound International to the Grammy Award-nominated “Hey Mama” with the Black Eyed Peas.
Titled after his 2010 hit single, the book covers 40 years of Tippa's prestigious career: from the first sign of talent as a child in South London and family members encouraging him to enter local talent competitions, to making his first record and becoming the powerhouse and Reggae-scene legend he is now.
It's a story full of dreams, music and hope, but also the deep traumas and tribulations that Tippa experienced throughout his life.
