Congratulations are pouring in for Reggae superstar Maxi Priest, after he was presented with the Keys to Broward County and the Outstanding Achievement in Arts and Entertainment Award from the City of Miramar in Florida, during the Black British Heritage Celebration, on Friday.

The event, which was held at the Miramar Cultural Center, saw Alexandra Davis, the Vice Mayor of the City of Miramar, presenting the award to the Wild World artiste, in front of scores of fans. The Black British Heritage celebrations recognize black British nationals’ contributions to their community and the world. Maxi Priest, who was born in Britain, is of Jamaican parentage.

Maxi performed some of his songs from his newly-released studio album titled “It all comes back to Love.” That album features three collaborations with Shaggy, whom he says was integral in the development of that body of work.

Among the fans sending congratulations on Instagram were fern_sewell, who said the British-Jamaican’s award was a tribute to the Windrush Generation.
