Biggaton adds voice to crime fight
Wednesday, March 26, 2014
CONCERNED with the rising level of crime in Jamaica, Rastafari reggae artiste Biggaton puts his thoughts to music on the single Crime Stopper.
"It's not about pointing fingers. It's about giving solutions, so that things would be better for us all," Biggaton told the Jamaica Observer.
The deejay said the track takes aim at gunmen, police, clergy, media and musicians.
"It's a general advice song," he said.
Kevin Roye a.k.a. Biggaton was born on April 17 and grew up in Mandeville. He attended the Mandeville All Age School from where he gained a scholarship to Holmwood Technical High. He began deejaying while at Holmwood Technical High with the help of his friends. Biggaton said, "I was once suspended from school because I would not stop deejaying. While I was going to school a friend of mine introduced me to a band by the name of Traffic Jam and I have gotten the privilege to perform on a lot of anti-drug school concerts and stage shows all over Jamaica. They also released my first song Equal Living". Biggaton is well known in Jamaica and internationally.
He has performed on many stage shows such as Rebel Salute '96 in Mandeville, Garnet's Silk Birthday Bash '96 in Ochio Rios and Luciano's Birthday Bash '96 in Central Village St. Catherine. Biggaton has toured the Cayman Island between June 18-23, 1996 with deejays Buccaneer, Dirty Birty, Alfrancis, Major Bones and D. Radcliff.
During the year 1999 the conscious artist release tunes call "What a Ting" a song on the compilation album named "Istick in the cloud".
