Real name Rexton Gordon, Shabba is Jamaica’s number one DJ. By the age of 12 he was learning from DJs such as General Echo, Brigadier Jerry,
Yellowman and Josey Wales.
His gruff growl has graced a series of reggae hits over the past few years,
at times more than one record a week, hits the reggae charts from him.
In the late eighties he became one of
the most popular and in demand deejays in Jamaica and the reggae communities of New York and London.
In late 1990 he had a giant international breakthrough as his duet with Maxi Priest
‘Housecall’ became a major crossover hit. He is also one of the few reggae artists to have won a Grammy Award
