Described as the most influential reggae artist coming out of the twin Island paradise of St Kitts and Nevis and, more specifically St Kitts, Masud Sadiki delivers everything that is positive and great about reggae music.
Masud is charismatic and powerful, yet humble. Hence immediately upon meeting this brother, one cannot help but feel at ease in his presence.
The St Kitts born artist, christened Kevin Donovan in 1974, began performing publicly at high school concerts, where he immediately stood out amongst his peers. Masud quickly began burning up local gigs and talent shows, which led him to share the stage with the likes of Buju Banton, Luciano, Denise Brown, Morgan Heritage, Beres Hammond, Wyclef Jean, Culture, Lucky Dube, Gregory Isaacs, Junior Kelly, Everton Blender and many other reggae stars, many of whom have influenced his music.
Any artist can make a statement, but Masud is here to make a difference. Masud is a recording artist, writer, and dynamic performer, with over 12 years of performing experience, including 4 years as a lead vocalist of Caribbean Roots (the house band for Four Seasons Resort, Nevis). His mission is to bring uplifting songs with a steadfast message of universal peace and love to his listeners.
With an exciting blend of roots reggae, ska, a touch of dancehall, a dash of African rhythms and a sprinkle of other Caribbean musical flavours, he manages to keep it lively and fun, with catchy melodies and brilliantly crafted music, while delivering socially conscious lyrics.
On stage, backed by his tight eight piece band Kala-Bash also from St Kitts, he touches his audience with his charisma, sincere humility and positive vibe. His performances are passion filled, hypnotic and his over all energy is nothing short of contagious. “I get a spiritual high when I’m on stage and the energy from the musicians and audience heightens the experience”, he says brandishing his signature smile.
