From Wikipedia :
Billy Boyo (born Billy Theophilus Rowe, September 21, Kingston, Jamaica 1969 – October 29, 2000) was a reggae artist, was probably the most prolific of the early-80’s child MC’s. He is famous for
his song « One Spliff a Day ».
Billy Boyo was still in his teens when he emerged in the early eighties. In 1983 he (together with Little John and Ranking Toyan) went to London where he linked up with producer Silver Kamel.
Along with the above noted « One Spliff A Day, » Billy also charted in 1982 with the Henry Junjo Lawes produced single « Wicked She Wicked. » This hit had the added charm of a 13 year old kid-voice
on the mic chanting about a wicked girl.
Billy Boyo wasn’t a prolific recording artist as he did not record much before or after the tracks for the first two albums and was maybe more known as a live MC. His musical career was
short-lived and little was heard of him since the second half of the eighties. In the early 1980s rumor spread that Billy Boyo and Little Harry had been shot and killed. However this proved to be
untrue. Billy in fact died of a brain tumor on October 29, 2000 after a two month long struggle to beat the disease.
