Born in Kingston, Jamaica, Likkle Lightning has crafted a colorful brand of reggae routing from his upbringing and genuine experiences from Jamaica, which MJMagazine have described as a refreshing throwback, “taking us back to when Dancehall was all about fun and good lyrics.”
Likkle Lightning moved from the capital of Jamaica when he was a teenager to the rural countryside with his grandparents. It was here that Likkle Lightning learned to appreciate the nature surrounding him and understood the value of hard work for his family. Without the distraction of the city, Likkle Lightning learned the roots of reggae and honed his craft of songwriting.
Likkle Lightning started his career playing live shows with veteran dancehall reggae artists King Yellowman and Professor Nuts. Likkle Lightning started climbing the Jamaican music scene rapidly; recording his songs in 2011 as his own producer (Sonhi Productions) at the legendary Tuff Gong Studios (Bob Marley). It wasn’t long before Likkle Lightning was playing live shows internationally with Everton Blender (Jamaican Music Award Nominee), Warrior King (Marcus Garvey Award)
Likkle Lightning is also an avid campaigner for nurturing today’s youth; appearing on anti-gun and anti-crime platforms, as well as promoting non-violence in his lyrics and live shows. Whether it’s achieving radio plays across the globe or featuring in publications from The Star to The Observer, Likkle Lightning is on an unwavering rise in the reggae world. There is no telling where Likkle Lightning will strike next.
