Born and grown in Kingston Jamaica, Mavado (David Constantine Brooks) was running the streets wild trying to stay out of trouble in Cassava Piece one of the many ghettos in Jamaica. Growing up in the 90?s Movado experienced the boom of the reggae dancehall era, and looking up to artist such as Bounty Killer inspired him to work to be the biggest badman in dancehall. A bit of luck struck Mavado when one of his best friends had arranged to meet with Junior Reid at his studio in Kingston not knowing Bounty Killa (a very prominent DJ at the time) would watch him perform and instantly recognize his talents.
There were many obstacles Mavado had to face, trying to make it big was one thing but trying to stay alive in his community was another. Leaving Cassava Piece everyday prevented him to reach for the stars due to the dangers outside his very own home but eventually he met up with Bounty yet again where he took him under his wings and groomed him into a now prominent Dj.
Movado now is one of the biggest most recognizable artist in the dancehall right now working with legendary Reggae producers Sly Dunbar & Robbie Shakespeare, Don Corleon and Delly Ranks etc.
He has even been in contacted by Barak Obama presidential campaign team in order to gain recognition among the Jamaican community in America.
Movado has understood how to remain the biggest badman in dancehall by using his hardcore lyrics, raw talent and the understanding of what goes on in his country that the government pulls a blind eye over and singing about it.
