Reggae artiste Khago - "Caan Cool"


"Sesyo", is a unique and signature phrase most commonly used by upcoming reggae sensation 'Khago' that definitely sets him apart creating a style of his own. Born Ricardo Gayle, 'Chicago' also popularly known as 'Cago or Khago' is no stranger to the local music scene.

In 2006, he placed third in the Jamaica Cultural Development Commissions' annual Popular Song Contest with his entry "Only if You Know" with which he also won best video. Here-entered the contest in 2007 with a song entitled 'Been There'; the song is a very mellow lovers rock which expresses his emotions of gratitude and abundant love for a significant other who has stayed by his side through difficulties and while facing severe adversity. The song received very favorable rotation on radio stations in Jamaica and the video has also been received a lot of attention.

He has consistently been one of the crowd favorites at all the JCDC road shows and is greatly admired by the young people (especially the ladies) for all his performances he has delivered during the school tours organized by the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission. At the end of the competition, he placed 2nd in the contest with the single "Been There", produced by himself and Dillon Reid, but has not considered it as a loss but as a growing process.


He has since then been focusing on taking his career to the next step as a professional recording artist bent on delivering uplifting and entertaining music to the world. He has also worked with popular producers such as Marlon Young, Sly and Robbie, and has done combinations with well-known artist Paul Elliot and his new single "Lonely" with cousin Little Hero. His song "Caan Cool, Caan Quench" on the one drop riddim is also another viewers favorite receiving heavy rotation on Jamaica's Fame FM hosted by Marlon Young.

Khago says his interest and love stemmed since the age of 16 and the passion deepens more and more, who cites Mr. Vegas and Spragga Benz as one of his biggest influences in the music industry admires Vegas' sing-jay style. Khago aspires to be a successful singer, and is definitely ready to infiltrate to not only Jamaica but to the rest of the world! Look out for Khago's new singles "Get Wise, "Gun Sound", "Dear Mama", and "Smile" whoever you may be there is always a song that you can gravitate towards and relate to.
