Daddy Roots ~ Conscious Roots Reggae - Anguilla's - Leeward Islands Rising Star!!

Daddy Roots (aka Wayne Alex Brooks) is often mistaken to be from Angola(Africa)instead of Anguilla(British West Indies). Borned April, 1977(artistic Snake child-Chinese horoscope) he is the youngest of 16 children. He got his name "Roots" because of his hair - shinny locks and "daddy" because he
always wanted to be the daddy as a child playing with his siblings.

Wayne started working in construction part time picking up steel cuttings when his father passed away when he was 9 and the family was left to fend for themselves. Roots then a working young man- still having a lot of energy left- formed a band after school AND work and called it "Wild Out" when he was nine years old. The other band members are in their early teens ; 11, 12, and 14. They played mostly Calypso music around the island and needed a manager to drive them from gig to gig
in the evenings and after school.
