Biography:
Long regarded as Jamaica original "Dance Hall Singer", Maddo first gained recognition as a performing artist when he teamed with the late great DJ General Echo.
He introduced a new musical concept to the dance halls of Jamaica when historically singers were limited to performing on stage with live bands and not with sound systems.

The combination of DJ and singer performing together on the same rhythms created the sound now known as "Dance Hall Style" which is the foundation for American rap and hip hop Sound.
The new combination of DJ and singer drew the attention of powerful Jamaican producers and Maddo went on to record several number 1 hits song including : 'Joe Grind', 'Coming from Town', 'Jammin' So', and 'Hotel Fee', just to name a few... Maddo's limitless talent had influenced the performance of others as well such as : Eek-A-Mouse, Frankie Paul, Garnet Silk, his brother U-U Maddo, and Grammy winner Shabba Ranks....

During a conversation in Boston, Shabba had recounted his younger days when he would go to the dance halls and study the style of General Echo and Maddo who was known back then as the "Bionic Singer". Following the untimely deaths of the Stereophonic Crew, Big John, Echo and Flux, which is still unsolved till this day as the case was named the "Halfway Tree Killings", a story that was told by Madoo in his song "Bite Di Dust".

There after Maddo stopped recording and performing for a while... Luckily for the hard core reggae fans as time went by Maddo did appear on some well chosen stage appearances so that the fans were still able to listen, enjoy his music, and watch him at what he does best...... entertaining a crowd !!
