Gyasi: “Special thanks onto the creator for allowing us brothers to come together to construct this piece. Give thanks to our parents for the strength along this journey, big respect to all the singers and players of instruments for sharing their God given skills with us. Thanks to the engineers and to all who helped us get our sound heard. Thank YOU… Rastafari”

Hannibal: “I want to give thanks to the almighty for his creations and the journey he has set me on. I also want to give thanks to our listeners, followers and to the artists doing the works of consciousness – blessings upon on all and may we unite from all fours…Rastafari”

Ras Sempah: “This album means so much to me as it expresses how much my journey has made me who I am today. I want to thank everyone involved for helping, giving inspiration and supporting the songs written by myself and the rest of the Royal Sounds family… Rastafari”

Ajani: “It has been an amazing journey so far and it feels even more special…because I’m doing it with my family. When Gyasi and I decided to put the band together we had a vision of using our music as a tool to spread a positive message… to see it manifesting is a great feeling. I want to thank our Dad for the dedication he put into training us to become the musicians we are today. Mum, for her continuous love, support and encouragement. I want to thank the Most High for making our dream become a reality. I hope everyone that hears Burning Inspiration enjoys it to the fullest. I hope everyone is left with that positive, uplifting message we are trying to put across… Rastafari”
