Jah Bouks – The expressions Illey!!, As I would say, Yes Rasta became
crowd favourites of the many viewers and fans of the popular Dancehall
competition ‘Magnum Kings & Queens’ 2013 season.
This as the masses local and overseas became connected to the Reggae
crooner in a dancehall space, Yes Rasta, Jah Bouks. Week in week out a
potent standard of quality was expressed and noticed by all, indeed a
joy to the multi-talented artiste who humbly recalls his beginnings and
Worin Gerol Shaw known also as Boukie or JAH BOUKS
was born in St. Thomas in a community known as Winchester. He started
doing music from the age of 12 years old. He left St. Thomas and came to
Port more, where he has done a lot of community stage shows in and
around the Municipality and his home away from home, Gregory Park. Early
memories linger on his soulful deliveries at after work jam sessions at
the Cactus Nigh Club where he commanded and in many instances equaled
popular favourites done by other artistes.
In time Boukie started
to pen his own music and plot his own discourses and has consistently
represented diasporic expressions of Unity, Rastafari, Africa, Equality,
Love and Positivity. His music has taken him into youth empowerment,
juvenile rehabilitation and community renewal as he pairs music for
national and world development. He recognizes his role and stands
diligently in the trajectory of Reggae Righteousness set by the
foremothers and fathers of the freedom sound as he often expresses an
ites in Peter Tosh, Burning Spear and Everton Blender.
Welcome Jah Bouks now on the scene with his latest single and video Angola on the Sunizes Entertainment label.
