To gain experience, he took a job working with a traveling soundsystem, and performed songs during sound checks. 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. After performing at many popular Jamaican festivals, Fantan Mojah recorded several songs on popular riddims, and was signed by Downsound Productions. He released his debut full-length album ‘Hail the King’ in 2005. It has become a hit in Jamaica, especially the track Hail the King, which has an accompanying music video. Opening the evening’s music is Prestige whose powerful social consciousness, witty nature, and adept song writing ability has cast him in the prestigious position of leading the latest pack of Roots Reggae artists. With a slew of singles including “My Pride,” “Wi Nuh Trust Dem,” “I am Bless,” “Hot Stuff,” a collaboration with Anthony B and Little Devon, and his latest herbal anthem “Smoke Free,” Prestige has flattened thousands at some of Jamaica’s biggest Reggae events including Magnum GT Taylor’s Christmas Extravaganza, P
