Call in to speak with the host
ARTIST of the week on www.caribbeanradioshow.com "PROPHECY" Rohan Brown.
Prophecy stands alone, and his concern for the environment is hardly surprising. As a Rastaman, he’s long cherished Mother Nature. Also, he was born and raised in rural St. Thomas– an area renowned for its natural beauty, as well as its links with Jamaican freedom fighters Paul Bogle and George William Gordon. Real name Rohan Brown, he grew up in a family of Seventh Day Adventists. Prophecy’s early life was therefore defined by simplicity and a deep-seated sense of righteousness – qualities that have remained with him ever since, and drew him to the conscious reggae sounds of early musical influences such as Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Gregory Isaacs, Jacob Miller and Burning Spear. Despite studying electrical engineering, he always wanted to sing and play music, and especially songs with a cultural message. .. Prophecy travelled to South Africa with Rita Marley and Chakademus & Pliers to perform at three AIDS awareness concerts. The tour group stayed in five-star hotels, but Prophecy asked to be taken to Soweto– a profoundly moving experience that inspired the song Chance, which the South African Broadcasting Corporation chose as a tribute to Lucky Dube. Prophecy describes the fallen reggae star as “a great warrior,” but says, “primarily though, Chance was done for all of the people suffering in Africa.”
