Quiz: Reggae Proverbial Wisdom

Updated on January 21, 2013

Are you ready for my Reggae Quiz, Mon?

Jump out of the frying pan and into the fire! Test your reggae proverbial knowledge and remember the first time you heard reggae tunes. Were you wearing sunscreen and sipping a rummy kind of drink?

What are proverbs? Proverbs are"memorable capsules of wisdom". They can be found the world over in all cultures; in music; in folklore.

I read somewhere that Bob Marley loved to use proverbs in his songs! "What is to be, is to be!" --from I Shot The Sheriff.

Take my "fill-in-the-blank" quiz is what I'm saying! (Do you dare?
