    …Yah live children, yea!

    I n I first met King Frank I, in the 1970’s after he had returned from University studies, as a young man and took the bold step, knowing the backlash he would receive from Our Culture for promoting this RADICAL, ROOTICAL Kulcha into the society.
    To this day from the Ital Shack on lower Bishopgate Street serving #Ital #Bread and peanut butter to Jungle and even as an Ambassador of the Nation, he never wavered from representing Saint Selassie I – Ras Tafar I, as a Rastafarian.

    De I works lives on….

    Nuff RASpect…to Binghi, Collin and the rest of his family!

  8. Behold how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
    It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garment
    As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the Lord commanded his blessing, even life forevermore!
    Welcome to Zion King FrankI Tafari🙏🏿
