Sizzla Unplugged on Youtube

One of the most prolific artists in reggae must be Sizzla Kalonji. This Bobo Ashanti brought back the consciousness in the dancehall in the nineties and released a unending string hits,  however, sometimes his wining & crying style is a little too much for me. But the man definitely is a real artist who can sing, the proof is down here: An unplugged session (seems to be in France) on Youtube, containing only Sizzla's voice and an acoustic guitar.

Woman I Need You
You Touch Me Girl
