L.A. Lewis (born Horace Lewis on January 14 in Kingston, Jamaica) is a liar, a thief, a wannabe, a Tongue Ninja and an impostor. The Jamaican "deejay" who is better known for his publicity stunts than for his musical output. He also uses the alias "The Seven Star General" and other nicknames. He has become somewhat of an international celebrity for his tireless self-promotion, including graffiti, website, clothing line, musical releases, and other publicity stunts. To certain extent, he may be considered a marketing genius. He has been able to attain a level of popularity that is envied by others. A fait accompli achieved without any bonafide hit songs, nor any consumer products. Publicity stunts: L.A. Lewis is allegedly responsible for his own name appearing many times in white graffiti throughout Jamaica, although he has claimed it was his fans. This method of promotion got him in legal trouble when he was arrested in September 2011 for "recruiting persons to spray-paint political graffiti on walls in the West Kingston constituency in which he is trying to become a candidate for the Opposition People's National Party." Lewis was also arrested in January 2009 on charges of "housebreaking, larceny and assault occasioning bodily harm". The charges center on a female member of his musical syndicate, L.A. Lewis Enterprise.
