As a child, growing up in an extended family, Jahdiel was first exposed to hip hop, by his youngest uncle.
He became curious about this music that his uncle listened to, because it was unlike the calypso and reggae that was more popular in Antigua. His curiosity would lead him to eavesdrop on his uncle as he played these songs.
At the tender age of 5 years, he started to pen his own songs and would sing them for his family. Later, he began to collaborate with some neighbourhood friends, and over his adolescence years, he and his friends penned multiple songs together. At this point, a producer gave them false promises for a recording session, which never materialized.
After being let down, his friends gave up the music dream but Jahdiel, who was determined to pursue a career as a hip hop artist, did not give up on his dream…
Jahdiel is the owner of his Band G-Force. The bands mission statement is “impacting our generation.”
