Beenie Man to Receive Official Proclamation by US Councilman

On Labor Day Sunday, September 4, 2011 the self-proclaimed 'Dancehall King' Beenie Man will be presented with a proclamation from US Councilman Leroy Comrie, for over three decades of outstanding contribution to the reggae music industry.

The official presentation will take place at the inaugural Reggae Rhythm & Blues Concert slated for Roy Wilkins Park in Queens, New York

"Beenieman has an impressive catalogue of timeless hit songs," said Bobby Clarke, CEO of Irie Jam Radio.

"He is a celebrated dancehall recorder, a seasoned performer and is worth of this very important United States recognition, especially since he has just received his visa and can travel freely to the USA."

Beenie Man had only recently had his US visa reinstated after it was revoked over a year ago. However, the artist hasn't yet received a work permit to tour or perform in the US.
