Owen Moncrieffe #aka Fantan Mojah was born in White Hill, St Elizabeth Parish, #Jamaica. To gain experience, he took a job working with a traveling sound system and performed songs during soundchecks. He adopted the name Mad Killer, in an homage to one of his favorite artists, Bounty Killer. After being exposed to the #Rastafarian movement his music began to take on a more positive tone, and he was encouraged by Capleton to take the name Fantan Mojah . Fantan Mojah is notable for being one of the new wave of contemporary #reggae singers who prefer to include positive themes in their lyrics. Like some popular new reggae singers, he is a #Bobo Ashanti. His faith is reflected in his lyrics, where some recurring themes are - praise for Jah and messages of Rastafari, positive portrayal of women, and condemnation of ill morals. This is a contrast to many popular dancehall artists, who encourage "slackness" in their lyrics, with boasts of sexual prowess and derogatory messages to women.
