Interviews

Dancehall artist Admiral Tibet [real name: Kenneth Allen] was born in Freehill, Jamaica in 1960. He is known for his genuine consciousness. A member of the Twelve Tribes of Israel since adolescence, Tibet avoids slackness in his lyrics.

Tibet got his start in Jamaican clubs and in sound systems as a teen, but did not record until he was in his 20s because he did not want to move to Kingston. With his own original style of crooning, Tibet was a popular voice of the ’80s and one of the few singers who maintained a presence in the deejay-dominated period of the early to mid-1990s. 

In the 1980s, Admiral Tibet stormed the dancehalls and airwaves with a slew of hits including “Babylon War” “Serious Time” and “Leave People Business”. In the height of the deejay-dominated mid-1990s, he still managed to hit with “Don’t Dis Me Girl” “Deh Pon Mi Guard” and “Terrorist”. 

Since breaking in 1985 with Babylon War on Sherman Clacher’s Arabic Records, Admiral Tibet has wrapped up a total of five full-length albums to his credit. A remix of his “Serious Time” featuring then rivals Ninjaman and Shabba Ranks, was employed to signal a reconciliation between the two deejays in the early ’90s. 

Reaping time for Admiral Tibet does not necessarily mean monetary success. He is not one of the wolves in sheep clothes jumping on the reality-and-culture bandwagon to achieve or maintain popularity. The low-keyed singer’s humility is in stark contrast to his militant messages of conscientiousness, a style he has consistently maintained regardless of popular trends. 

Most of the material was recorded and produced by Maurice Johnson aka Black Scorpio in the late 1990s. Admiral Tibet continues singing about his points of view, with songs like “Unity” “Innocent Life”, and “CanÕt Hold Me” to name a few. An album filled with personal conviction
