DJ Ni-G From birth music was already flowing through my veins. At the age of 6 I was already belting out folk songs and hymns at school and my local Church in Laborie, St Lucia singing both alto and soprano when the need arose. A Musician by nature, I joined various Musical Bands in St Lucia and became lead vocal for 2 different Bands at the age of 22 and 27 respectively. My versatile style and stage personality enabled me to master the art-form impersonating a number of Artists such as Yellowman, Bob Marley, Third World, Peter Tosh, Jacob Miller, David Rudder, Kitchener, Arrow, Burning Flames, Kassav, EEK-A-Mouse, Gregory Isaacs to name a few, and of course, including my own DJ style of toasting using my own lyrics on the spot as I saw fit at a number of venues on the Island. I became a household name in St Lucia for my unique style and versatility in the mid 80s and early 90s at a time when Dancehall music was captivating the hearts and minds of Lucians at heart alongside the pulsating rhythms of Soca music, Disco, Soul,

I have been on the music scene for many years and my love for music began when I bought my first record in 1981 "I'm so Sorry" by Carroll Thompson. Coming from a St Lucian background my parents were always having parties and family gatherings, playing Country and Western, Soca and Reggae music. From there my record collection grew buying all genre of music like Soul, Reggae, Soca, R'n'B too many to mention.In the early 90's me and my good friend Frighty started our own sound system called Gent's International played at many house raves and clubs. We got residences at club Mingles on Friday and Saturday nights . After being recognise playing in the clubs I was approached by a Radio Station manager to become a radio presenter on City Radio, Station FM and Supreme radio. On perusing our careers in the music industry, Frighty started to record his own tracks and met up with Colonel Mite and produced the track "Life is what you make it" and as their tour manager we toured around America and hit no.1 in the UK Reggae charts. In 2000 I was proud to have started 100% Lucian Entertainments putting on my own dances at different London clubs and venues, having a big following that enjoyed the music and was very successful. My passion for music still continues and will never end. I am happy to join the team here on All Flavas Radio.
