About Sugar Minott:

Lincoln Sugar Minott was born in Kingston on May 25: 1956. He virtually grew up in a dancehall: living next door to a sound system on Chisholm Avenue. Graduating from Kingston College Extension School at the age of 19 after attending Melrose Primary: he actually believed that football would be his calling as he was an excellent goal keeper. After a stint at electrical engineering: which he quickly abandoned opting to follow his love for music: he followed various sound systems and eventually became a selector for a small sound system called Sounds of Silence Keystone.

Joining Tony Tuff and Derrick Howard to form the group African Brothers: Sugar stepped out into his musical career. After competing in several talent contests: the African Brothers went on to record several cultural and conscious songs for different producers including Sir Coxone Dodd. Although the African Brothers never had a major hit the experience of singing taught Sugar much about harmony and melody which he successfully utilized in his solo career. His introduction to Studio One resulted in him becoming a studio apprentice: quickly learning the art of record production. He was eager to voice new tunes on the timeless rhythms in Coxone’s vault.

About Tippa Irie:

Anthony Henry – a.k.a. Tippa Irie – emerged from England’s Saxon Sound International – the star-studded travelling sound system that has been at the forefront of the U.K. reggae dancehall scene for the past 25 years and helped launch the careers of artists such as Maxi Priest: Papa Levi and Smiley Culture. Tippa Irie was part of the new generation of British MC’s who developed the ‘Fast Talking’ style chat which today can be heard in modern day rappers like Busta Rhymes. Tippa toured extensively with his friend and long-time sparring partner: Pato Banton: throughout the Eighties including an appearance at Jamaica’s Reggae Sunsplash and their U.S. debut tours together. The U.K. DJ duo of Tippa Irie and Pato Banton had become one of the genres favourite combinations. As the Nineties began: the dynamic duo pursued their solo careers. Over a decade would pass before Tippa & Pato would reunite in the studio with legendary singing sensation Peter Spence to produce “””The Good Old Days””””–a track featured on Pato’s 2000 Grammy-nominated ‘Life is a Miracle’ and Tippa’s ‘I Miss’ tribute album to his late and great sister/MC Miss Irie.

Ky-Mani Marley - One Time

 

About KY-MANI MARLY:

Creating a dynamic lineage, Ky-Mani Marley is the second youngest of Bob Marley’s eleven children. While bearing the Marley name, Ky-Mani’s childhood told a different story. Being exposed to an urban lifestyle, Ky-Mani adopted the attitude that all people are equal no one is above or beneath him. This attitude has become the motto for the way he lives his life today.  Humble. Soft-Spoken. Sincere. Loyal. Honest. Genuine. These are the makings of Ky-Mani Marley

Initially not being swayed by the lure of music, Ky-Mani’s first love as a child was sports. As years passed, the seed that was planted by Bob’s legacy sprouted in 1997 when Ky-Mani teamed up with Pras of The Fugees and collaborated on Eddy Grant’s “Electric Avenue”. This would be a defining moment in Ky-Mani’s musical journey. Since, Ky-Mani has tapped into his artistic gift and has embraced the idea of sharing his insight through song.
