Thirty five years after his death, veteran reggae band Inner Circle feels the time has come for their former lead singer Jacob Miller to be considered for a national honor by the Jamaican Government.
"For the era and short period of time he was around, Jakes had a huge impact on the music and politics. The tunes he did, people could identify wid dem... he was the people's singer," Ian Lewis, bass player and founding member, told the Jamaica Observer.
The Florida-based musician said the popular Miller used his platform to advance issues on the people's behalf.
