I was baptized from a young age of 12, however, I went back to my old ways shortly after, and as I grow older I got involved with secular music, drinking, smoking of weed (ganja), fornication among other things. I was greatly influence by the secular world and most of my musical lyrics very much reflect the lifestyle that I was a part of. My lyrics spoke about guns, fornication, weed and the list goose on.
I migrated to Kingston from Clarendon in April 2003 to stay with family members who where Christians. Their life style reminded me of the Christian values I was once taught. I started attending church frequently. Shortly after I moved out on my own, and then it started all over again, the struggle between doing what is godly or satisfying the flesh. I started attending secular studios, and surrounding myself with negative influences. I was considered to be a very good writer, and so I started to get proposals and deals to write for some secular artist. This would have been very profitable for me and so I had all intention to follow through, but God had better plans for me.
Although disobedient to the Word of God, I was still aware of the fact that what I was doing was ungodly. I was always wrestling with my conscience. One day at work my attention was drawn to someone singing a Christian song. The message of the song had a strong impact on my life. At that time - the young man that was singing the song came over and started to minister to me. At this point, he started to think seriously about my life. This was fuelled by Christians. I then decided to start revisiting the church, but was caught in a dilemma of becoming a secular dancehall artist and serving God.
One night while I was asleep I got a vision from God, that caused me to realize that I needed to make a change and stand for what was right. I was invited to church one Sunday by a co-worker, but I did not turn up. I accompanied my co-worker to church the following Monday night, which was prayer meeting night. After a series of praying and communicating with God that night I decided to give back my life to the Lord, not knowing how I was going to let go off the things I was accustomed to.
I started attending church frequently and developed a strong relationship with God. I was baptized again and started my life with God a-fresh. Due to my experience of music in the secular world, I decided not to get involved with it anymore. However I recommitted my life to the Lord, and believed that God wanted me to use this musical talent that I was blessed with to minister to others especially the unsaved. I started to write songs based on me testimonies.
