Rebel with a cause, Jamaican deejay, the music of Josey Wales featured in an exclusive mix.
Josey Wales is one of my favorite original deejays. With a career starting in the late 1970s, Josey came to notoriety performing live on U-Roy‘s King Sturgav sound system. He recorded some of his biggest hits for producer Henry “Junjo” Lawe’s Volcano record label and was a dominant figure while touring with the Volcano sound system.
Josey Wales is an influential Jamaican dancehall deejay.
Wales is considered to be one of the best dancehall toasters of the 1980s dancehall era. A confident entertainer with a powerful presence on stage, Josey Wale’s voice was rough and gritty. His lyrics embodied the content of a street-side reporter, comedian, and motivational speaker.
Josey Wales was one of dancehall’s founding fathers

Daddy U-Roy and the crew come to the A town!
The world’s original Rub-A-Dub sound system with Daddy U-Roy himself and the crew straight from Jamaica. Big up all who respect foundation and know this is the greatest of the great.
Born in Spanish Town, St. Catherine, Jamaica, Kafinal has emerged as an entertainer and vocalist with diverse talents.
The singer/comedian/actor who is now based in Toronto, Canada credits his sometimes difficult upbringing with giving him his strong work ethic and sense of humour. The second of five children for his parents, he remembers how his mother worked hard to make ends meet. With that determination, he has decided to pay homage to her with his work.
Like many of the musical greats he started singing as a child in the church as well as in school and at community events. In 2001 while still living in Jamaica his professional musical timing had come and he released songs like “Cooking Dat Pwile” and “Drive By”.
Upon relocating to Canada, Kafinal began to make a name for himself on the Caribbean live show and performance circuits both as a singer and comedian.
The re-emergence of his first love, music, which Kafinal describes as “soul-filling”; presents him with an opportunity to entertain the best way he knows.
Influenced by all genres of music, he lists Bob Marley, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson and Beres Hammond among his musical influences.
For Kafinal the sky is indeed the limit as he plans to build on the exposure and fan-base he has garnered and take it to the highest level. He promises to continue to put out excellent music with the best production quality.
Lyrically he is definitely on his way as he has already released not only “catchy” but very relevant content. His latest project is titled “Road Tonight”, has been rocking the airwaves in Jamaica, Toronto, the Caribbean and North America.
Expect more from this talented brother of the Caribbean.
