Born in Britain to parents of Afrikan origin, Jamaican descent in East London. It was always clear to my parents that I was not going to be an ordinary child obstinate intelligent bubbly and bright. I had a love of nature and all things natural not precluding natural rights. By the age of 5 I was writing my own poetry and songs and had a love for music and was learning the piano. By the age of 8 I was performing on behalf of the GLC anti racism poetry that reflected the discrimination and racism that I had experienced first hand. Tony Banks had no qualms in telling me I would be infamous, I thought was brilliant until I found out what it really meant.
Then I realised that he probably had a point and continued to write and perform . At age 16 Benjamin Zephaniah gave me my highest paying job performing on stage at the Theatre Royal in Stratford and I have been a huge supporter ever since, admiring his lyrical genius and principled stand.

I have a great opportunity for a Corporate to be involved with a great initiative. We are embarking on a strategy to further highlight the Ethnicity Pay Gap. We are looking for Corporate offices to feature in a film we will be making on the Ethnicity Pay Gap. The company name will be featured in the film which will secure you as an Ambassador for the Ethnicity Pay Gap and will in turn provide you with free advertisement. The filming will take a day to complete.
