"It's Our World, Our Time." ~ A call to return to one's culture, and accept our collective responsibilities as Citizens of the World.
Previously released under the title "Afrikan Diaspora", this album was written both during and after Kofi was sponsored to tour Ghana via the Joseph Project. He was received by the Ghanaian Government and Tribal Elders; featured on National Television, radio stations, and a multitude of venues; all the while visiting monuments of sorrow, as well as those of hope. The three-month tour was nothing short of profound, and provided a deep well of inspiration that continues to flow beyond the contents of this album.

"The Time is Now" to answer one's divine call - Featuring JAH KINGS' hit "South Africa".
Nominated for "Best Worldbeat Album of the Year" in the 2004 Jammie Awards (MI), this collection of songs came through in preparation for a South Africa Tour, after Nelson Mandela had been elected President. Though sponsorship for the Tour fell through as a result of the 9/11 attacks, the video for “South Africa Tribute” was sent to the Nelson Mandela Family Foundation, and subsequently featured on their website, granting the JAH KINGS project unprecedented world-wide exposure.

Nominated for "Best Reggae Album of the Year in 2002 Chicago Music Awards"
In the aftermath of a particularly uncomfortable band transition, Alexander "Kofi" Washington was encouraged by Drunvalo Melchizedek to “go higher” and do better. Like many other times in his life, Kofi embraced the changes, accepted the challenges, and hurtled well beyond the scope of his obstacles. The product of those efforts is the LOVE LP, which was nominated in the 2002 Chicago Music Awards for “Best Reggae Album of the Year”, with Kofi also receiving a nomination for “Best Reggae Performer of the Year”. This recognition cemented JAH KINGS’ “Funky Roots Reggae” as a legitimate genre, and catapulted them to a National stage.

JAH KINGS' 1995 Debut Album
After years of experiencing an almost ritualistic hazing from a staunch section of the Reggae Community, while steadily making headway in the national tour circuit, in 1995 JAH KINGS debuted their first full-length studio album, Jah Frequency. The album featured the Funk, Jazz, and Soul flavorings of Kofi’s upbringing in Gary, Indiana, while demonstrating a genuine dedication to Roots Reggae and Culture.
Songs like “Prejudice”, “El Salvador”, and “Babylon” highlighted Kofi’s ability to compassionately speak on hard truths in a way that even some of the most critical protectorates could not deny.
“When I first heard this band, they were trying to get it right. On this album, they got it right!”
~Elder Papa Pilgrim, of Reggae Ambassadors Worldwide
