Dancehall Tours - hosted by Pantason - Episode 32 - Chuck Fenda
Welcome to Dancehall Tours a series where we interview artists about how cannabis plays a part in their music.
Today our host Pantason interviews Reggae artiste Chuck Fenda. Chuck Fenda always had a special love for music, making a hobby of impersonating some of his favorite entertainers as a youngster. It didn't take him long to decide to pursue his dream in the music business. In 1995 -6, he frequently traveled between Jamaica and New York to hone his deejaying skills.
Having met and being guided by some of the top producers and performers of that era, he was persuaded to return to Jamaica and in 1997 released his breakthrough single – “Jah It’s All About You” under the tutelage of King Jammy. He spent most of his time at King Jammy's studio where he released top singles such as “Shut Yuh Mouth When Bad Man Talking”, “Mi See It Clear”, “Badda Badda” and “Lift It Up” which received high rotation on the local airwaves.
Having introduced himself to the music scene as a conscious and spiritual, he has been working ever since at establishing himself as a strong force in Jamaica’s musical tapestry. Embracing the Rastafarian way of life, he has been dubbed within the entertainment industry as the ‘Poor People Defenda' and remains focused on creating heartfelt lyrics about the plight of the poor and current affairs.
