MY JOURNEY WITH WASSIFA My journey with Wassifa sound stared around1985 Whilst being a DJ on PCRL, I would buy my records from Grove Lane Record shop where Shadi, Natti and Everton would sort me out with latest releases and give me advice on what I needed in my record box etc.
I would attend parties where Wassifa would play and soon started to follow their sound, as I loved the way they played (rocked a party). I remember there was a big dance happening in Slough, I was on the bill along with Wassifa, and from there I was booked to play in London at Shenola’s Nite Club and other venues across London with Wassifa.
When Wassifa played out of town, I would go with them along with my crew Angel A, Sandra B, Eileen and Nite Nurse. Over the years they became good friends, I knew all the
members of Wassifa and would often be at the HQ on Stamford Road (Shad’s Mom’s house).
I took a 20-plus year break from Radio Presenting but still DJ’d various gigs. In that time, I always felt that I was part of the Wassifa family and knew that I could call on them for advice/support if needed. It was Mykal (Shad) who put me forward to be one of the hosts for Jamaica in the Square and who got me back into Radio hence I now do a Reggae show on Big City Radio.
To me I have always been part of the Wassifa family……. Now it’s just official
