Emwah Warmington Popularly Known as Skillibeng grew up in the Lyssons district in Retreat, St Thomas, where he attended Morant Bay High. He was part of a dance group while in high school and was naturally drawn to entertainment.
He also got the nickname Skillibeng while in school.
“The name Skillibeng is a representation of Jamaican music overall, because it is a word people automatically associate with dancehall and reggae, so it connect — but I have a different more modern approach to the art form,” he said.
He got his break in 2016 with the single Brain Parts.
