Sista P, Ahzid do it for generations
Sista P and Ahzid

When reggae artiste Sista P conceptualised the idea for Generations, little did she know she would have to wait 12 years to record it.

"Generations is a song that celebrates the love and respect shared by families, friends and communities globally, and I am really glad that people are responding so well to its message, especially after surviving a global pandemic," said the artiste, whose real name is Patrice Chang.

Generations — released via the COAST label on June 27, 2022 — features vocalist Ahzid as well as jazz musician Akili Jamal Haynes.

"The release of Generations comes at a time when the world is in need of a reminder of our ability to generate true and steadfast relationships — an unequivocal love that has been passed down through generations globally by families that can continue to help us foster better communities locally, nationally and internationally," she said.

Sista P hails from Downs district in Manchester. She is a founding member of the St Lucia's Music Society.

"Who knew I would one day take the stage again to team up with Ahzid and also rebrand myself to the world? That's why God preserved my appearance for this moment," she said. "Generations is a song for the ages."
