Close friends and members of the music fraternity, attended the dinner reception hosted by Anthony “Chips” Richards himself to celebrate his recent achievement. Chips, who along with Dennis Alcapone recently received the Prime Minister’s Medal of Appreciation award. The medal, awarded every five years was awarded to both along with sixty five other individuals for their contribution and growth and development of various facets of Jamaican life and culture.

Olivia ‘Babsy’ Grange, Bunny Lee, Blackbeard, Barry Biggs, Earl ‘Chinna’ Smith, Leggo, King Sounds, Carlene Davis, Tommy Cowan and Lloyd Parks.
