Not Me

Hailing from the beautiful island of Barbados, this son of the soil they call Kingservant has returned from a self-imposed hiatus with a new name and a new sense of purpose – to bring King and Kingdom to the people through music. Once operating under the name Servant, he was one of the headliners of the group Rugged Royalty, which gained a respectable local following. In 2012, just before taking a break from the music scene with the birth of his first child, he recorded the song Daddy. This song, incidentally, would play a role in springing him back into action several years later, when, in 2019, he would perform it to earn second place in the inaugural Reggae Stars Competition. Kingservant also connected with renowned local artist, songwriter, and producer Jaicko Lawrence around the same time, and together they would collaborate in writing and honing what is becoming a distinctive sound.

2020 has seen the release of Soul Cry (produced by David Thomas), ‘Jah’s Grace’, ‘Not Me’, and most recently ‘King Ting’, of which audiences got a pre-release sneak peek during an impromptu ‘Quarantine Concert’ 
which Kingservant released on YouTube. Kingservant has a unique ability to deliver both uplifting as well 
as challenging messages through his poetic lyrical style, and a musical sound that has been described as 
“a stellar mix of traditional roots and modern reggae, with a hint of hip hop and dancehall”.

Apart from music, Kingservant is an entrepreneur and investor involved in several projects, a multi-sport 
athlete and certified coach and trainer, as well as a passionate environmentalist. However, his most treasured role is that of husband to his amazing wife, who is his biggest supporter, and father to his two phenomenal daughters. Kingservant is currently working on a multi-track project which is due for release later in 2020.
