BOBBY KUSH THE ENTERTAINMENT BOSS
The story of Bobby Kush
WOSHOEEE…is the sound you will hear when The Entertainment Boss is hype and the vibe is lit.
Bobby Kush The Entertainment Boss, formerly known as DJ Bobby was born Bobbilyn Corain Nelson in Clarendon, Jamaica on the 3rd day of December 1993.
Surrounded by music at an early age, from homegrown reggae and Dancehall, to disco, soul, hip hop, R&B and gospel, Bobby Kush became involved in the family business, often tagging along to set up sound systems with his father and turned the tables as his uncle performed at parties.
Bobbilyn adopted the moniker DJ Bobby at the age of 13 when he began to explore his career as a DJ/Entertainer, playing CD’s to entertain his peers at school events and making mixes to sell to potential fans. He transitioned to performing for larger crowds at community events, graduations and Football games to name a few, wowing his audiences with his powerful voice and natural gift of the gab.
The level of respect he garnered as his popularity grew propelled him into competition, where at the age of 13 he won his first-ever talent show, put on at his high school, going up against singing, dancing and acting performances. Two years later he took the title of champion in action at a community clash put on by a local promoter.
Still growing and learning DJ Bobby commenced recording his performances to review and share with his fans. Online radio for Canadian based Mad Vybz Radio, and Jamaican Krush Yarde Radio. This exposure attracted the attention of local sound system Nuclear Dandada sounds where he claimed the spot of the sound’s Headline DJ when he incinerated his opponent in his first clash after only three days with the sound system. This relationship was short lived as the sound was poorly promoted, resulting in limited bookings. DJ Bobby’s momentum garnered him his first contract to play for Unforgettable Sounds where he represented the sound by front lining for Bodyguard in the Magnum Follow Your Sound Sound clash against Silver Hawk, Ricky Trooper and Flava Unit. He placed third trailing Flavor unit’s greats Silver Hawk and Ricky Trooper. DJ Bobby went on to train an apprentice who eventually took his place when DJ Bobby and Unforgettable Sounds agreed to end their relationship after the end of the contract to allow the Young entertainer to rebrand and boost his career as ‘The Entertainment Boss’.
At the age of 21 Bobby Kush ‘The Entertainment Boss’ blasted his solo career, and with no management and no sound system, he became one of the most requested entertainers, playing all across every parish of the island.
Living for his namesake: “Keep Up Stay Hype”. Bobby Kush set his sight on phase 2 of his journey as The Entertainment Boss and left his homeland of Jamaica to embark on the first leg of his Caribbean Tour to Barbados.
Bobby Kush was met in Barbados by a flood of energy and cultural vibes when he landed right in the midst of the island’s grand festival Crop Over. Bobby was blown away by the popular sound of Soca which was met with droves of energy by the locals who partied like nothing he had experienced. He quickly made links with local DJs, all the while building a network to further promote his brand. The support of his constantly growing network pushed him to enter his first Barbadian clash hosted by Slew Dem Sounds where Bobby naturally dominated the support of the crowd with his smooth Jamaican patois. The performance won him the clash and was announced to be the Champion of the Slew Dem Sound Crowd Response DJ competition.
Bobby Kush became a household name with not a day passing without his name or addictive sound-effect being blasted on the airwaves.
