b. c.1978, Kingston, Jamaica, West Indies. The Lindo dynasty has featured heavily in the reggae industry: Earl Lindo played keyboards in the Wailers, the singer Hopeton Lindo has enjoyed many hits, the producer Jack Ruby was born Lawrence Lindo and KashiefGÇÖs father is Willie Lindo, who played guitar for the Hi Times Band and formed his own production company. Although Willie produced dancehall hits, including GÇÿGirlie GirlieGÇÖ for Sophia George, he is celebrated for his tender ballads, including UK chart-topping hits for Boris Gardiner in the mid-80s. In 1992, Willie produced his sonGÇÖs recording debut, which surfaced on the one-rhythm Rougher Yet compilation. KashiefGÇÖs earliest success arrived in late 1993 with GÇÿHard TimesGÇÖ, performed over the evergreen GÇÿSatta Massa GanaGÇÖ rhythm. In 1996, inspired by the FugeesGÇÖ success with their cover version of Roberta FlackGÇÖs GÇÿKilling Me Softly With His SongGÇÖ, Kashief recorded his own version, which was enthusiastically received within the contemporary market. As a youthful performer, he remains unperturbed by the fact that he has yet to produce a commercially successful dancehall hit.Portions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
