Biography

Born Gemien St. Andrew Sinclair on the 25th of May 1979, in Kingston to jovial singing mother and an inspiring Rastafarian musician father (Andrew Joe Culture Sinclair-manager and keyboard player of Black Culture Band, best band in Jamaica, 1990). At birth he resided at Jacques Road then moved to Portmore where he spent most of his childhood. At the tender age of 13 he then moved to Portland for 4 years where he gained a stronger spiritual elevation in Rastafarianism. This is where he found the real purpose of music and its powerful impact after being inclined with music from birth. After spending 4 years in Portland he then returned to Portmore at the age of 17.

Kush represents the land of Africa and Kuwshites the people, hence the name I-Kush-inI, remaining true to his culture and origin. For IKush music is a mission and “I being music itself will always continue to do my duty”. He is inspired by Reggae Legends such as, his father Andrew Joe Culture Sinclair, Peter Tosh, Bob Marley, Beresford Hammond and by Ras Tafari who has been his greatest inspirer.

I-Kushini has performed at events such as the crowning of swamp king in Portland at the age of 16 in 1997. His experience grew to a wider sphere when he voiced his first demo album (Green Light) at Black Scorpio studio with the name Battle Axe and performing at various parties and gigs in the Kingston and St. Catherine region. He also did work with Mixing Lab (Diamond Rush) and is presently working with labels such as Global Fire(voiced and released single 'Free Water way' 2006), John House (Little John), Small Axe Production, Studio 100 (Squidley Cole), he is now managed by the Mystery System Entertainment whom has also produced tracks for his upcoming album self titled (Ikushini "I to O") including new single Scenario, on the River Nile Rhythm, also working with Ikush is producer, songwriter, bass player for Grammy winning Digable Planets MC Doodlebug Rob Griffith and Nyah Music.
