“This is no joke.” That is Curly Lox’s declaration when asked about his autobiography, The Road to Zion, published by Ghetto People Publishing in Kingston. The memoir is unlike anything else coming out of the dancehall space, and the artiste is very careful to warn readers that this is another side to him.”The people know my face but not my story, and they’re about to find out.”Eight years in the making, the story is a gripping tell-all where Curly Lox shares with readers, the painful road to redemption and acceptance that follows on the heels of an immense tragedy – the death of his six-year-old-son, Zion, after whom the project is named.Issues tackledThe book is not just an autobiography, as Curly Lox takes on several important social issues while giving the reader a glimpse into his past. Among the issues he tackles are: Jamaica’s failed education system; class prejudice and its impact on the poor in Jamaica; the hidden backstabbing politics of dancehall personalities; child abuse/corporal punishment and its use as an acceptable means of disciplining children; the challenges of raising children with autism and other special needs; teenage pregnancy and parenting, and the challenges that arise when there is no support system; the loss of a child and the grief that ensues – coping; the overall challenges of growing up in the ghetto and the force of will required to change that reality; and financial intelligence – the importance of saving towards goals.
