Akae Beka, the roots reggae band from St Croix, enters the Billboard Reggae Album chart for the first time this week with Portals , which comes in at number eight.

It was released on April 1 by I-Grade Records.

Akae Beka was founded last year by members of the band Midnite. The group comprises Vaughn Benjamin (lead vocalist); Edmund Fieulleteau (guitar); Kenny Byron (guitar); Sly Molina-Curet (drums and percussion); Ras L (bass) and Suren Fenton (keyboards).

The Anguilla-born Benjamin started Midnite in the late 1980s with his brother Ron Benjamin. They established a strong following on the United States west coast through frequent tours.
