Born Emwah Warmington in St. Thomas, Jamaica, Skillibeng grew up the rural town of Lysson and now resides in Bull Bay near Jamaica’s music hub, Kingston. He always loved music, but never pursued it fully; he worked a 9-5 job until one day he was in a major car accident and came out unscathed. Seeing it as a sign, Skilli decided to jump into the music scene full force and had his first major breakthrough with his single “Brik Pon Brik” in October 2019. Following that hit, Skillibeng continuously dropped music, including popular tracks “Coke” and “Crocodile Teeth.” His discography includes his Prodigy EP released in August 2019, 35-track mixtape The Prodigy released in December 2020 and an alternate version titled The Prodigy: Ladies Only Edition released in May 2021. After that, he released the album Crocodile Teeth in October 2021, which features the remix of hit track “Crocodile Teeth” featuring Bobby Shmurda and has other major feature artists including Popcaan and Rich The Kid. Overall, Skilli has garnered 73 million streams worldwide on Spotify alone and over 335 million views on YouTube to date. With the addition of “Whap Whap,” the remix and Mr. Universe to his discography plus more new music to come this summer, Skillibeng is ready to push dancehall into the mainstream music space and give the genre the shine it deserves.
