Jackie Opel day

Jackie Opel day
23 Aug

Moves are on to have August 27th - the birth date of cultural icon Jackie Opel officially recognised as Jackie Opel day.

Opel whose real name was Dalton Bishop was one of the few persons in history to develop a new genre of music - Spouge.

Were he still alive he would have celebrated his 80th birthday next Monday.

Cultural practitioner, Aja says many are still not aware of Opel's contributions and achievements.

He says a true celebration of Opel should not be on the date of his death.

Aja also announced plans for a Jackie Opel Music Festival.
