The Manifest is the most important award for Swedish independent music. The jury elected 'Kokoo Girl' for the best album in the category 'Rytm'.

Explaining their decision to award the Manifest to Jaqee, the judging jury said:
"With an extremely personal, peculiar and emotionally filled voice, this artist radiates out her message through her very own wonderful style. On the last album the artist worked & succeeded with the art of modernizing the roots reggae sound.

With the latest album, this artist has grown to higher heights and gone far beyond Sweden's borders. It is world class, it is Jaqee!" (Jury / Manifest Award 2010)

Born in Kampala, the Capital of Uganda, she began her vagabond like life the moment she was born. During her childhood, she travelled the rural areas of her home country with her parents. This is where she collected her first impressions of the life as a nomad. From birth on, wandering the earth became a part of her destiny.
In the early nineties she undertook a huge step and immigrated to Sweden. The City of Gothenburg would become her adopted home from where she was able to access all the different destinies and directions, which were on
offer to her.
