To begin with, he was born and raised in the August Town suburb of Kingston. Like his parents, he decided to become a member of the Rastafarian movement, and joined Bobo Ashanti. He attended the local Dunoon Technical High School, where he learned mechanical engineering (his father ran his own car workshop). At the same time he made his first steps in the music scene, performing with the Caveman Hi-Fi sound system. He also recorded his first single “Is Not That Loving” under the small Zagalou Records label.
His career gained momentum in the middle of the 1990s, when his vocal talent was spotted by well-known producer Homer Harris. Not only did he give Sizzli an artistic nickname, but he also introduced him to Dean Fraser, the famous saxophonist. This resulted in the release of several well received singles, the best known of which is the song “No White God”. Philip Burrell was also the producer of his debut album “Burning Up”, which was released in 1995 by RAS Records. However, the album did not achieve the expected success, and the real star was singled out after the release of two more albums: “Black Woman & Child” and “Praise Ye Jah”, both in 1997.
Since then, Sizzla has created over 50 solo albums, including “Da Real Thing” (2002), “Rise To The Occasion” (2003) and “Soul Deep” (2005). Recently, the solo albums entitled “Crucial Times” (2010), “The Scriptures” (2011), “The Chant” (2012) and “The Messiah” (2013) were released. In addition, about 20 compilation albums have been issued too. His songs stand out for their distinctive colour and wide range of vocal music, both sharp and aggressively screamed and falsified here and there, as well as quiet and gentle, sung purely. In the text layer, Sizzla is dealing with a wide variety of themes, ranging from slackness through romantic ballads, to spicy songs based on deep spiritual transmissions. In addition to this, Sizzla, like many other dancehall musicians, frequently mentions smoking gays, which in turn evokes the protests of gay communities and organizations. In the year 2013, Sizzla was warned several times by the organization to perform homophobic songs during the performance at the Sting Festival in Portmore, Jamaica, where he has been one of the main acts for years. After publicly speaking on the stage, he was given a lifetime ban on this event.
Finally, in the personal life of Sizzla, he is apparently still single.
