Reggae Fraternity UK is a community organisation run by a group of passionate people, giving up their time voluntarily to help UK reggae artists and musicians. Since our launch RFUK has continuously strived to establish and cement working relationships with music organisations. Recently we have established working relationships with VP Records, Trojan Records, PRS, and the Musicians' Union.
Our website and presence across social media platforms has enabled us to forge new and ongoing engagements with national and international organisations and we continuously receive requests from TV, radio and the media wanting to engage with UK artists, musicians and people associated with UK reggae music for their projects. We have provided acts for the Lambeth County Show; Camden Black History Month Celebration; BRIA Rising Up; One Love Festival and Giants Of Lovers Rock.
RFUK were honoured to be the chosen organisation to attend the inaugural screening of 'Inna De Yard' (a joyous, vibrant film set against the backdrop of the lush green mountains of Jamaica in which a superstar group of reggae legends gather to record a new album of infectious hits in an unplugged style that harks back to their roots) at the Soho Screening Rooms.

RFUK pledges to continuously celebrate and award our UK reggae talents. This was demonstrated with our first ever award for Outstanding Contribution to Reggae Music awarded to the late Mr Tony Williams DJ and creator of the first Reggae Music Awards Show. Being one of the great pioneers of reggae music for over 50 years he was an intricate force and a phenomenal ambassador of UK reggae music who ensured UK reggae music was recognised internationally. Additionally on the same evening we endorsed and awarded our versatile songstress and Queen of Lovers Rock Janet Kay in recognition of 40 years in the music business.
We continue to award UK reggae talents with our latest RFUK International Reggae Day People’s Choice UK Reggae Music Poll. Awards for
Favourite 2018 UK Reggae Single and Album. We pledge to continually honour and endorse many more from the UK Reggae Music Industry.
