This reggae sensation had an appreciation for music, since his humble beginnings as a young child in St. Mary, Jamaica to growing up amidst the turmoil in the streets of Augustown, Jamaica. Initially listening to music served as an escape from life’s daily struggles, however the music found the entertainer in him, in a surprising way; while singing to a friend, a stranger overheard his melodic voice and invited him, to a recording session. Tilibop, unhappy with his first time out, was determined to not only improve, to excel. He went home and wrote a song, and then practiced, and continued to practice until something stirred within him and he hasn’t looked back since that fateful day twelve years ago. It’s that same introspective quality and work ethic that make Tilibop the consummate vocalist he is today.
