Born in Savona (Italy) from nigerian father and italian mother, this young artist is very close to his african roots. Reggae music is his heartbeat, from the childhood. Since he was a little boy he used to entertain his parents and friends singing Bob Marley songs.
His musical journey starts in 2002, when at the age of 15, he started developing his musical skills becoming singer and songwriter of the Italian Reggae band EAZY SKANKERS, founded with the bass player Andrea “Botta” Bottaro. The Band performed all around Italy in shows such as “Rototom Sunsplash” in 2005, “Arezzo Wave Love Festival” in 2006, “GoaBoa Festival” in 2007, and shared the stage with artistes like Giuliano Palma & The Bluebeaters, Sinhead O’ Connor, Black Uhuru, Junior Kelly, David Rodigan, Bitty Mclean, Toots and the Maytals, Cocoa Tea, Turbulence, Gappy Ranks and the late “King of Ska” Desmond Dekker.
Troy Stephen Born in KingstonJamaica, , his love for music first manifested as a soloist in church. Stephen’s foray into the realm of recorded music began with the single “Ruffer Than Ruff” recorded for the Telecom Label. The song was distributed by Dynamic Sounds and Stephen’s performed under the stage name ‘Trojan’. As a singer/songwriter, Stephen consciously attempts to make each composition a soul-stirring message that uplifts and enlightens. This “message music” aspect of the artiste’s repertoire is grounded in the drum and bass of roots reggae, though, his versatility allows him to create quality music for varied genres.The musical journey has led Stephen to establish his own Whirlwind Records Label on which he has recorded and released several singles.
It's good to talk.
