CHUCK FENDA …The Poor People Defender The world can't contain him. Not anymore. With his embracing of the Rastafarian faith and his determination to be "The Poor People Defender", DJ Chuck Fenda is on a mission. A mission inspired by the Almighty. Indeed, a new world has opened up its arms and audience to Chuck Fenda. In fact, very few are left to come to grips with the lyrical revolution his prese day, awe-inspiring music has incited. When he was under the management of Fifth Element Records, very few could disagree that the DJ has matured into one of the best entertainers Jamaica has produced, commanding a level of respect and credibility that will make him a strong force to reckon with on the international stage. His thought-provoking, heartfelt lyrics, coupled with his matured, energetic stagemanship make him one of the most charismatic entertainers around today. One only had to witness him in action at Sting 2002, Stone Love 30th Anniversary, East Fest and Everton Blendah's Birthday Bash, to realize that he has been cemented as one of the entertainers that will play a great role in the revolution of Jamaica 's music across the globe. Born LESHORN WHITEHEAD on June 15, 1972 in Brooklyn New York , Chuck Fenda always had a special love for music, making a hobby of impersonating some of his favourite entertainers as a youngster. It didn't take him long to decide to pursue his dream in the music business. Making regular trips between Jamaica and New York to hone his deejaying skills, he spent most of his time at King Jammy's studio, where he released his debut single "Shut Yuh Mouth When Bad Man Talking" on the Tight Clothes rhythm for John John (King Jammy's son). He followed that up with "The Glue." Producer King Jammys was impressed with the DJ's talent and invited him to record on his label. It was then that he recorded his first big hit, "Jah, It's All About You" on the one-drop Money Money rhythm. Released in 1996, the single climbed several charts in Jamaica and across the Caribbean . The video for the song got regular rotation on all the top music video programmes. Shortly after, Chuck Fenda began recording for several producers, including Shocking Vibes where he did "Fat Round Yah". In 1997, Fender decided to relocate to Jamaica to focus on his career, settling at King Jammy's studio and working hard at establishing himself as a strong force in the dancehall. In 1998, he recorded his next big hit, 'Mi See It Clear' (Rat Race) on the Joint rhythm. But his biggest hit was yet to come. "Bada Bada." The single made it to the number one slot on the local charts and in the top ten on various Caribbean charts. "Bada Bada" was a staple in the dancehall and was on the daily play list for several radio disc jockeys. Engineers Ward 21 of Jammy's studio created a rhythm of the same name, which spawned several dancehall favourites. Chuck Fenda has every confidence in himself and he is working very hard to make a positive change, both locally and internationally so expect all good things from him.
