Mavado, aka Real McKoy, stamped an indelible mark on the dancehall scene since his hit single, also called Real McKoy, took off. Recorded on Daseca’s hugely popular Anger Management riddim, Real McKoy hit it big last year and launched the career of dancehall’s Gangsta fi Life singer. Born David Constantine Brooks at the Victoria Jubilee Hospital, Mavado has lived in the ghetto all his life. Growing up in Cassava Piece was never easy for Mavado or his family, with his grandmother often playing the maternal role. It was in the church that Mavado was first given a microphone to sing by his granny at age four. From then, Mavado was a permanent fixture at every church function and rally. He attended Charlie Smith High School in Arnett Gardens, from where his father hailed. As the teacher left the room, the desk top would be beaten and Mavado would deejay the lyrics of Cutty Ranks and Bounty Killer. Upon leaving school, Mavado found work at a liquor store, but lasted just one day as he always knew music would provide for him.
