Johnny Osbourne (born Errol Osbourne, 1947) is a Jamaican reggae and dancehall singer, who rose to success in the late 1970s and mid-1980s. His album ‘Truths and Rights’ was a notable roots reggae success. He is probably best known for his mid-1980s dancehall reggae hits “Buddy Bye” (based on King Jammy’s Sleng Teng riddim), “Ice Cream Love” and “Water Pumping”.
During 1967 Osbourne became lead vocalist of The Wildcats. After singing with various soul and reggae groups, he moved on to become lead vocalist for Ishan People, and recorded two albums with them. The group broke up in 1979, and Osbourne decided to return to Jamaica.
Now, the godfather of dancehall and reggae has his eyes set on our shores, and will be making his Singapore debut at Kilo Lounge!
